It’s been a bit quiet on The Beauty Type with beauty products as I’ve been saving my pennies for some real treats. The summer beauty edit has come around and I’m so excited for this post with a Feel Unique and Boots haul. I have finally brought my first ever Charlotte Tilbury product and I am in love already. I have also added a new skincare treatment to the mix plus some beautiful lip colours from NYX. August may only have one more week left but these will be taking me into the Autumn perfectly too!
My Summer Beauty Edit for the Face…
I finally caved and picked up a bottle of the highly coveted Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter Primer in 1 Fair. This has had so much hype around it, as does every CT product, but this especially caught my eye. I’ve felt like my makeup has looked so lacklustre recently especially my base. This transforms your skin to look glowing, clear and supermodel fresh. Summer beauty never looked so easy. I honestly can’t see myself looking back, my list is ready!
To compliment a new primer, I picked up the L’Oreal Infaliable Total Coverage foundation in 10 Porcelain. This may have some stick over it’s limited shade coverage but I found Porcelain to be a great fit for once. This is a matte, full coverage foundation that feels so lightweight. I’m yet to give this a good test but so far, this and the primer are a beautiful match!
The Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in 1 Fair, is a obvious repurchase. Simply this is the best concealer in the world and I cannot find fault with it. For £4 this is always an easy buy.
My Summer Beauty Edit for Lips…
Onto lips and I’ve fallen out with lip products a bit recently. I religiously wear my MAC Angel Lipstick which I purchased for my wedding but it just doesn’t last and I rarely top my makeup up during the day. As I really got along with the NYX Lip Creme in a Cult Beauty Haul I decided to get a few more NYX lip products in my summer beauty edit.
The first being the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creme in Tokyo. I’ve had this on my list for a while and I’m pleased with how beautiful this baby pink is. (See swatch below). It is a perfect everyday colour and will take me through every season. These lip cremes last all day long. I can’t wait to give this a good test on a busy work day.
The other NYX lip product is the Lip Lingerie in Silk Indulgent. This is a liquid lipstick compared to the creme, but the finish is very similar. This is a nude pink colour which I hope will be a long lasting colour. I love the tube, it feels very luxurious. I’m already so impressed by NYX and if you haven’t visited your local counter for a look, I highly recommend it.
My Summer Beauty Edit for Skincare…
Lastly, I am on a skincare mission in this summer beauty edit with Vichy. I haven’t used much from them before. I’d see them on par with La Roche Posay so I’m not sure why I haven’t before. I decided to invest in a new serum to boost my current skincare system. There’s a huge hype around Vitamin C in skincare at the moment so wanted to find out what the fuss was about. Feel Unique had the Vichy Liftactiv Vitamin C Skin Brightening Corrector on offer with a little freebie set. This Vitamin C treatment is a 10 day treatment that you use once a day to help brighten, smooth skin, even your complexion and a whole host of other good things.
I will be doing a full review on how I get on with this product but so far, so good! This came with a mini day and night cream from the Aqualia Thermal range.
What are you loving this summer, what would you add to your summer beauty edit? Also, any Charlotte Tilbury recommendations, send them my way!
