Want To Know Our In-House Beauty Buff’s Top Picks
If anyone at Nykaa is passionate about all things beauty it’s Riah Daswani! Sure Nykaa is a beauty junkies’ paradise with countless products to play with. Still, you could spend days sampling and still not trying them all…Now, since most of us don’t have endless hours and days to try it all, we asked our in-house makeup addict Riah to round up ten products that are totally worth your precious time and money. Over to Riah…
I love this face mist! It works like magic on my dehydrated, sensitive skin. It’s easily absorbed and leaves no tacky feeling on skin. What’s more, it combats redness, excess oil, dehydration and dryness, making my skin look simply wonderful. I tend to use this twice a day and I feel my skin actually looks forward to this stuff!
Owning good quality brushes is a total game changer. This Real Techniques set has two of my fave brushes; the Multi-Task brush which I use for dabbing on translucent powder as well as to pop on blush/highlight/bronzer. The other multi-purpose brush is the Domed Shadow Brush that you can use to pack on eye shadow. It’s also the perfect size to blend or buff in concealer under the eyes or to cover up any blemishes.
My favourite way to use this product is to blend it in with my foundation of choice. It imparts a gorgeous, ‘lit-from-within’ glow to my skin. I also tap it on the high points of my cheeks, down my nose and Cupid’s bow to amp up the highlight. The micro-shimmer particles leave my skin looking natural, subtle and radiant, and not at all glittery which I personally think is a very tacky look.
Nothing detangles my mane as well as these babies! The bristles are super soft and they can work their way through stubborn knots without pulling or breaking hair. They come in both normal and mini sizes and in an array of fun colours. I can’t survive without the mini one! It permanently lives in my hand-bag. It’s so convenient for on-the-go emergencies and works superbly if you’re planning to spend the day by the pool or at beach parties.
These amazing lip glosses are a staple in my makeup bag. They have a glossy look and are so pigmented that they go on opaque in a single swipe. The doe foot applicator makes application so easy. They are slightly sticky when freshly applied, but they seem to transform into more of a lip stain over time.
This is one of the best mascaras I’ve ever used. It makes my lashes look so much fuller with just one coat. The curved wand coats evenly and simultaneously separates each lash without clumping. I’ve repurchased this over and over again and am currently on my third one!
This genius product does a great job of making three-day hair look freshly washed! It refreshes tresses and also adds volume and texture. It doesn’t leave much of a powdery white layer like other dry shampoos I’ve tried. I find myself reaching for this product all the time! It’s a life saver for last minute plans and also for people like me who are lazy to wash their hair sometimes!
This was an impulsive purchase and I was pleasantly surprised! I use it every day to line my upper lash line. The pigmentation of this kajal is off the charts and it is super smooth. It’s waterproof and very long lasting and as the name suggests it, “lasts all day” and doesn’t budge. It is a fool-proof kajal that ticks all the boxes.
It smells so feminine and sensual and at the same time it has some underlying deep notes which helps add to the mystery. A delicious, heady mix of fresh Rose and Berries, this is my go-to perfume and the perfect addition to finish off my look.
As a self-confessed makeup addict, I believe well-defined eyebrows really help to frame your face. This compact brow kit is fantastic for doing just that! It comes two highly pigmented matte brown powders which can be blended together to achieve the perfect shade. You also get a pair of mini tweezers to pluck out strays and a brow wand to comb through and lighten the powder. Everything can then be smoothed and set into place with the clear brow wax.
