Top beauty products of 2018
With the arrival of a heatwave this year, getting a glow that J-Lo would be proud of has been top of our list and thankfully some of our favourite brands have stepped up to give us a helping hand. If you’re on the hunt for dazzling highlighters, shimmering bronzers and fuss-free fake tan for that just-come-back-from-my-holiday look, then read on as we’re about to help you unleash your inner golden goddess.
First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Coconut Water Cream
First up is this incredible moisturiser from First Aid Beauty that’s super lightweight and absorbs quickly into the skin, which is perfect for this hot weather we’re experiencing right now! Infused with electrolytes, amino acids and phytonutrients, the coconut water cream will help revitalise and refresh your skin whilst delivering long-lasting moisture and hydration. All good make up needs a beautiful base so this is perfect for popping on in the morning before you start your make up regimen and you’ll stay moisturised and revitalised all day long!
Olay Daily Facials 5-in-1 Dry Cloths
If you haven’t already seen these being advertised on Instagram by influencers, then we’re going to assume you haven’t got Instagram. Yes, these facial cloths may have
been shoved down your throat appeared in your feed plenty of times already but before you roll your eyes and scroll on, give us a chance! These water activated micellar cloths are the lazy girls dream – they remove all traces of make up, dirt and oil, as well as cleanse and exfoliate your skin without all of the fuss. Simply wet the cloth, work it up into a lather and use as you would any ordinary wipe – et voila! A beautifully clean face in one simple step. And the best part is that they’re really affordable, coming in at less than £7.
Tan Luxe The Water
A self-tan that sprays onto your skin as delicately as water and dries in moments sounds too good to be true, but Tan Luxe’s new fake tan does just that. Spray evenly onto your body, blend lightly and in less than four hours you’ll have a radiant sun kissed glow. The formula contains a unique blend of purified water, vitamins B, C, E and raspberry seed oil, along with natural tanning actives to help you get that brilliant bronze colour, without streaks or that nasty fake tan smell.
Cult Beauty, £33
YSL Touche Éclat All-in-One Glow Foundation
If YSL’s iconic Touche Eclat concealer has saved your eye bags plenty of times, then this foundation may be one for you. Described as a hybrid of their infamous concealer and recently launched full coverage foundation, this promises to give a glowy, dewy base that’s natural looking. There are 12 shades in the range to choose from starting with the palest B10 Porcelain up to the darkest in the range B90 Ebony. Not the best range when you compare it to the likes of Fenty, but if you can find a shade that matches your skin tone, you should really give it a whirl.
Feelunique, from £21.75
Iconic London Luminous Powder
Dubbed an ‘Instagram filter in a compact’ this silky pressed powder can be applied to your face, neck and décolletage to give a golden glow. The unique trio of powders can be swirled together to give perfect radiance or you can use each block individually to highlight and contour to you heart’s content. So turn off those filters and buy this instead – there’s nothing better than IRL glow.
Cult Beauty, £32
Anastasia Beverly Hills Powder Bronzer
New in from Anastasia Beverly Hills is a matte powder bronzer that gives a natural looking, sun kissed finish to the skin. There are six shades to choose from so you can find a bronze shade that suits your complexion. Sweep over your forehead, nose, cheeks and chest for an instant sun kissed look.
Benefit Brow Contour Pro
This 4-in-1 tool is essentially your new brow wardrobe to achieving gorgeous, groomed eyebrows. Benefit’s Brow Contour Pro has a light and dark brow shade colour, an edge definer that’s similar to a concealer, and a highlighter to finish off underneath the arch of your brow for extra oompf. The consistency of the brow shade isn’t like a pencil or gel, in fact it’s very creamy so use a light hand when applying. It’s perfect for when you are travelling too, as it won’t take up tons of space in your make up bag. We’re sold!
Benefit Cosmetics, £28.50
Charlotte Tilbury Bar of Gold Highlighter Palette
This powder highlighter caused quite a stir when it was initially launched as a single shade, selling out just about everywhere. But now its back and it’s even better than before. The Bar of Gold Highlighter will instantly brighten your skin, with the trio of show-stopping shades that can be applied on cheeks, eyes and décolletage for a super shimmery look. It contains the original gold shade, a rose gold highlight that’s great for a blush, and a gold bullion shade for a deeper bronze colour.
Charlotte Tilbury, £49
MAC Dazzleshadow Liquid
MAC’s latest eye shadow release isn’t for the faint hearted. Perfect for the last few festivals of the year and even better for the party season ahead, these liquid eye shadows pack a punch with rich pigments and bright colours. There are ten fabulous shades to choose from and since we can earn cashback on MAC purchases through Quidco, we might pick up more than one.
