It's been a while since I last updated what's been lurking about in my makeup bag and I've found some new beauty buys that have been marvelous game changers.
Tarte's Amazonian Clay BB tinted Moisturiser is a little too sheer for my liking but the texture is beautiful: airy and blends like a dream. The faux wood cover is an aesthetic plus. I like that it doesn't contain parabens, mineral oil or phthalates so this is an absolute keeper for me.
Being self conscious about my dark eye circles (legacies of late night conference calls) and freckles, makes me entirely dependent on concealer. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is God sent goodness in a sleek tube with its creamy yet utterly light texture that does an excellent job in banishing blemishes and pesky dark spots.
Given that we've easy access to all kinds of sunscreen here, I find it ironic that my holy grail sunscreen was purchased online. It met all my criteria: great sun protection, light texture (no white-ish cast!) plus is free of nanoparticles and phthalates. The best part is that it makes a perfect base for my tinted moisturizer and these 2 go together like peanut butter and jelly.
