My turn this time to ask an Expert ….
1. You are an avid online shopper and a wise buyer I must say, I would like to know some of the best product one should pick from THE BRANDS like YSL, Chanel, Dior, Givenchy, Elizabeth Arden, Shiseido and Estee Lauder.
Let me write some of the best products each brand makes though I have had post on what to buy from brands in some of blog archives. YSL – Touché Eclat, Faux Cils and Singular Mascara, Lipsticks, Glosses and Teint Parfait complexion perfector. Chanel – Eye liners, Nail polishes, Lipsticks and Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation, although most of the Chanel limited editions are really good compared to any other brand. Givenchy – Photoperfexion light foundation, Roughe Interdit shine lipsticks, blushes, Magic Kohl pencil and Phenmoneyes mascara. Elizabeth Arden – Ceramide range, lipsticks, Intervene Radiance Serum, Eye fix primer. Dior makes the best eyeshadows, Extase mascara; Serum de rouge and Dior Eye show creamy eye shadows. Shiseido – Multishade enhancers in Terracotta glow and sunset glow, Accentuating sticks, Luminizing Satin eye color trios, eyelash curler and Hydropower eye shadows. Estee Lauder has lovely lipsticks and lip glosses, double wear light foundation, double wear mascara and double wear liners.
2. Loose Powder or Pressed Powder and which brand?
I like Kryolan and Clinique for Loose Powders and Inglot for pressed powders. Other brand which I absolutely love is Shiseido.
3. Myths and facts about Toners – key ingredients in them and how important and are they really good or aren’t much of use to our skin
Toners can be drying to the skin and they only give a refreshing feeling and nothing else. All that pore tightening is silly as even cold water can do that. Please remember if your toner tingles your skin then it doesn’t mean it’s working, it’s overtly drying your skin. Also it’s ok if you skip a toner especially in winters. Mattifying toners are the harshest skin care products known to anyone. If you get blackheads after using toner, it means ur skin is reboundly producing excess oil due to the drying effect which is not a nice situation.
