Listography: Top 5 Beauty Products

by admin on March 25, 2012

As a self-confessed makeup junkie this week’s Listography at Katetakes5 is right up my street. Beauty products are my downfall and something I’d rather spend money over clothes. I have the most sensitive skin on the planet which tends to react to everything by breaking out. So, I have tried, tested and spent I dread to think how much on the latest products, most of which have ended up languishing at the back of the cupboard under the sink. A while ago I did my top 8 makeup and skincare products for yummy mummies

Here are my latest top 5 beauty products:

(They’re all great for sensitive, spot prone skin too)

1) Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser (in Bisque)

Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20

I’m a big fan of Laura Mercier. I now use the oil-free tinted moisturiser because of the humidity in Singapore. It’s great for sensitive or spot-prone skin – unfortunately like mine.

2) Laura Mercier Primer

Oil Free Foundation Primer

This helps stop making sliding off, which considering it’s so humid here, is key. Again since moving to Singapore, I use the oil-free version.


3) Mac Select Moisture Cover Concealer (in NC20)

 Select Moisturecover

This is the best concealer I have ever come across. It’s great for both blemishes and dark circles under the eyes (after a heavy night – I wish! It’s actually more likely to be to one or other child keeping me up at night)


4) Neals Yard Rehydrating Rose Toner

Rehydrating Rose Toner

This is fab toner great for sensitive skin.


5) Clarins Instant Eye Makeup Remover

Instant Eye Make-Up Remover

I can’t use many Clarins products as I tend to react with them, but I do like this eye makeup remover, it takes off heavy eye makeup easily.
