A Little Bit of Luxury

I’m the type of girl that likes a good bargain but on some things I’m willing to spend a little extra money. Like luxury bags, hair salons and certain makeup and skincare products. This time I got 3 quality products from Helsinki Airport when I was flying back to Delhi. Duty free of course!

The YSL highlighter and concealer is said to be the best on the market, and that’s why I bought it. I mainly got it for my under eye area, for dark circles which have appeared out of nowhere (I never used to have this problem). I tried it on my bare skin and I was pretty happy with the result. It reflects light really well, but for more coverage I will have to use a separate concealer or foundation as a base.

The Clarins Lip Perfector I have used for years and I own many shades. They have the most amazing natural shades! It’s the perfect combo of lip gloss and lip balm for my dry lips. And the best thing: The tube allows you to subtly apply the lip gloss in a way that doesn’t require a mirror, so you can do it in public without embarrasment. I mean, I still feel awkward applying makeup in public! 😀 It just looks dumb. I’d rather walk around pretending that I don’t have any makeup on and I just look this good naturally ha.

I needed a good under eye cream and I had to do some research on it. Biotherm is a great brand and I have only good experience on their products. The main reason I don’t use more of their cosmetics is that they’re expensive. I wanted this cream because it’s suitable for younger skin and reduces puffiness and dark circles under the eyes. The moment I applied it, I felt a cooling effect (as it promises). Plus it has this lovely shimmer on it as well! I’m just a sucker for shimmer. I buy creams and serums just because they have shimmer on them 😀
