5 Top Makeup Recommendations From The Love To Slay Team!
There are a few things that you can’t just help going back to, again and again, just like your favourite local takeaway or that ultra-comfy hoodie you have lying around. Here at Love To Slay HQ we love trying and testing out any beauty products that we’ve purchased, are new to the market or samples sent through PR packages, and most importantly products that are unashamedly on repeat in our lives. This month we’ve tried a miracle mask, a game-changing concealer and much more – read on for the full haul.
"My October favourite is an unsung hero that I use every day. Garnier Oil-Free BB Cream for combination to oily skin. As someone who has battled for years with my skin, I only use products that are oil-free and mineral-based and have tried most of the expensive ones from all the top brands. This product is a lifesaver for everyday use, it is mineral-based so doesn’t irritate my skin, non-comedogenic, and has SPF 20! As well as having buildable coverage that leaves me naturally glowing, minimises pores but doesn’t slide off my face!"

"I tend to only buy ‘pretty palettes’ as presents for people, but earlier this year I treated myself to the Charlotte Tilbury Vintage Vamp Quad Palette. I use it only for special occasions weddings, birthday outings etc. It includes 4 rosy and shimmery shades: a pale shimmer, ruddy plum, deep burgundy and peach-toned gold glitter. You can layer these in different ways depending on if you want a subtle look or high impact glam one. I find if you apply a primer or eye cream before you can get a stronger finish that stays throughout the day. The pale shimmer and ruddy plum (no 1&2) on their own make a nice subtle day time look. Use the deep burgundy dark eye contour and peach gold glitter pop over the top for a sparkly evening one (no 3&4). I love how easy the colours blend together it’s something you can even do it in a rush with the compact mirror. This palette is the start of a bad habit, I def have my eye on the other shades too!"

"My October favourite is the NARS Cosmetics Soft Matte Complete Concealer. High coverage to cover imperfections but still looks natural, avoiding that cakey look which nobody wants. I have oily skin so the oil-free formula suits my skin type perfectly. I use it every day and apply with my finger, with some setting powder over the top for a natural daytime look. The pot may look small, but it lasts for ages and it's the perfect size for on the go. Also delivers antioxidant protection with a cocktail of vitamins A, C and E. Available in 16 shades so you can find the perfect match."

"My favourite product that I've purchased this month is the Vichy Purifying Pore Mineral Clay Mask. After researching quick and effective masks that would unclog impurities, clear any excess sebum and minimise the appearance of pores without stripping away essential oils, this clay mask came to my attention. After a busy day at work, the least I wanted was to wait around for a 15-30-minute mask yet be as effective within 5 minutes. Yes, you won’t believe it, I said 5 minutes! Quick and easy. The result of this mask was extremely powerful. Even after the first use, I could just tell that it really did clear away all the dirt, grease, grime and impurities I had. After a couple uses, it helped even out my uneven skin tone, soothe my skin texture and even stopped those pesky pimples appearing. A product that’s worth re-purchasing."

"I received a sample of the Pantene Argan Oil when I purchased a couple of hair products and was super shocked by the little sachet given. I then decided to buy the full-size bottle this month and can say it’s a quick hair relief solution with that added shine. I usually apply small amounts to the tips of my hair once I’ve straightened it. I feel it keeps my hair in place without it giving me the greasy look. The lightweight oil base also gives you a protection boost keeping that moisture in your luscious locks, especially over the cold winter months."
