Did I need any new beauty products? No. Am I a sucker for new formulas, pretty packaging and limited editions. Without a doubt. So while I didn’t plan any new makeup purchases, I could’t resist a nice discount on Chanel. I ordered the Chanel Eau de Teint from the 2019 Les Beiges collection and the classic red lipstick Rouge Allure in 99 Pirate.
I don’t own a lot of makeup. Mostly skincare products. I would rather have nice skin and no foundation than having to cover it up for a smooth complexion. Mind you, I know that not everyone is blessed with such easy skin as mine so I have nothing against wearing full coverage makeup. It’s just not for me. My idea of makeup is a tinted moisturizer and some mascara. So if I wear anything on my face it needs to be lightweight. For years I’ve been wearing Origins VitaZing SPF15 Energy-Boosting Moisturizer which adds just a hint of colour. But the formula of the Eau de Teint and the reviews got me interested. We will see how I like it.
If I could only wear one makeup product next to my base for the rest of my life, it would be lipstick. A blueish red to be exact, which works excellent with olive skin, so the internet tells me. MAC’s Ruby Woo has been my go to option for the last 10 years but the extremely dry formula doesn’t seem to work for me anymore. I still love the matte look but my lips are always dry now, no matter which lip balm I try or how much water I drink. So I hope this will be a nice replacement.
Do you ever switch from long time favourites to new products?
