“I will be restocking the Too Faced Born This Way Super Coverage foundation. The formula is light-weight, hydrating and oil-free, making it perfect for long wear. Available in 35 versatile shades, it gives the skin an immaculate, natural-looking finish. Atop, I will be grabbing two eyeshadow palettes from Huda Beauty. The Huda Beauty Naughty Nude Eyeshadow Palette and Huda Beauty Rose Quartz Eyeshadow Palette are both available at discounted prices. Boasting gorgeous colours, these inspired palettes help me create intricate and inventive eye looks. Finally I will be grabbing the MORPHE Eye Obsessed Brush Set, a must feature in any MUA’s makeup arsenal.”

“Nykaa’s sales for me are that time of the year when I restock all my K-beauty essentials. I have very dry skin, and have found few products to be as effective as Korean skincare when it comes to hydration. I’m currently on my third tub of the Laneige Water Sleeping Mask. I love the lightweight texture and that it seeps in very well. I wake up with skin as soft as a baby’s bum every time I leave it on overnight. My skin feels healthy and almost luminescent on continued use. It’s on a 15% discount and I’ll stock up now so I don’t run out. I’m also buying Innisfree’s Green Tea Hyaluronic Acid Under Eye and Face Serum. While nothing works for my dark circles, (which are more because of genetics than lifestyle) this product does a good job of keeping the under eyes hydrated and takes away the puffiness of hectic days. And since I have basically no self control, I will be pairing this with Pixi’s brightening under-eye patches for some extra love.”

The COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence,  formulated to rejuvenate and repair damaged skin features high on my shopping list. I will also be bagging the COSRX Advanced Snail Mucin 92 All In One Cream with Hyaluronic— the formulation boasting the humectant HA, helps nourish, protect and maintain the skin. The moisturising lip essence from One Thing sits in my shopping bag as it helps shield the lips from external aggressors. Keeping them soft and supple, this potent essence does away with episodes of drying or flaking. Throw in this mix ,the Dot & Key Cica Niacinamide Night Gel with Tea Tree Oil, Fights Dark Spots & Acne for All Skin! The Dot & Key Barrier Repair Ceramides & Hyaluronic Hydrating Face Cream With Probiotics is an offering deemed fit for sensitive skin. It helps regulate a healthy skin microbiome and strengthens the acid mantle.”
