Treat Yo’Self: 7 Beauty Splurges To Make This Week
We've got a gorgeous dark red lipstick, gold-infused masks and a scented body moisturiser that'll leave skin feeling velvety like you wouldn't believe.| April 12, 2017
This week, we’ve got our eyes on products that err on the unique. Gold masks that do more than just hydrate and promise to fix skin within the hour, a body moisturiser that is really perfume in cream form and an eyeshadow palette that holds all the season’s most wanted colours in one place. We’ve also found what could possibly be one of the most phenomenal beauty multitaskers we’ve seen in a while. If work, school or life in general hasn’t been treating you too well lately and you think you deserve to treat yo’self, sort of a way to stick it to the man, allow us to lend a hand with our top beauty splurges of the week below.
111Skin Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask
It’s finally available again! This one will cost you, but it’s not difficult to see why. While most masks seek to hydrate the skin at the very least, 111Skin aims to get your skin prepped ASAP by getting circulation going whilst reducing redness and sun spots. If you need a quick fix that still costs less than a facial before that blind date, this is it.
Chanel Chance Eau Tendre Moisturising Body Cream
We tried this just the other day at Chanel’s Coco Cafe pop-up and were immediately sold. Not only does it not leave a long-lasting soothing scent on your skin without that greasy after-feeling, the texture is velvety like you wouldn’t believe. This might be the most luxe body cream we’ve come across in a while.
Chantecaille Gold Energising Eye Recovery Mask
Another gold-centric mask, but this one’s slightly different. Specifically made for the eye area and pumped with collagen, seaweed, plankton extract and good ol’ hyaluronic acid, this gem from Chantecaille promises to fade lines, eye bags and puffiness in 20 minutes.
Grown Alchemist Deep Cleansing Masque
Exfoliators are great, but you still need a deep cleansing masque to dig deep into the pores. Aesop’s Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque is a favourite of ours, but this from Grown Alchemist is starting to grow on us with its cranberry, gingko and wheatgerm formula that hydrates, brightens and controls oil as it does the work.
Jeffree Star Androgyny Palette
It’s probably obvious that we’re fans of Jeffree Star by now. This palette gets our love not just because it’s Jeffree Star, but also because it actually holds some of the hottest colours of the season: gold, orange, copper, red-brown, wine and brick red. Judging from how pigmented Star’s products typically are, you can bet that Androgyny is no exception.
Kevyn Aucoin The Sensual Skin Enhancer
Could this be the multitasking beauty product we’ve all been waiting for? It’s foundation, concealer and highlighter in one, plus it contains jojoba and honey for extra skin nutrients. It’s concentrated, so you only need a little at once, yet it provides impressive coverage without weighing skin down (but only if you go easy). Finally, it is sweat proof and doesn’t budge. What?!
Lipstick Queen Bête Noire Lipstick in Possessed Intense
Wine red lipsticks with just the right amount of black and blue are hard to come by. So, when we see one that might hit the spot, we grab it. Lipstick Queen rarely disappoints. This one goes on evenly, lasts long, moisturises and is, most importantly, extra vampy.
