Nearly a year ago I wrote a post on my Beauty Game Changers - products that stand out from the rest and increase your standards of that type of product!
Beauty Game Changers aren't discovered easily and the title doesn't just go to products you purchase time and time again. They have to stand out from everything else you own.
I re-read the post and all my 'game changers' still stand though I discovered the Essie Ridge Filler does thicken up within a few months so I now favour the China Glaze Ridge Filler which really is the cream of the crop when it comes to base coats.
Since writing the above mentioned post I now feel I have a handful of products that really stand out to me and are my new personal game changers that I would recommend to anyone. So without further ado...
Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water
400ml/£4.99 - Feel Unique here or Boots
When it comes to high street micellar water solutions I will admit they are all pretty much the same. But the Garnier one makes the top spot for me due to the amount you get for your money, an impressive 400ml bottle verses 200ml from L'Oreal and 150ml from Superdrug's own brand B. for the same price. Micellar waters have revolutionised how I remove my makeup and now cheap makeup wipes to remove makeup when I'm feeling lazy are a thing of the past. Micellar Cleansers really are the holy waters of the beauty world and are a must try if you haven't already!
Recommended to - Anyone that wants to remove their makeup effectively and quickly. Or as a quick pre-cleanser to remove most makeup.
L'Oreal Superliner Perfect Slim in Intense Black
£5.99 - Amazon here or Boots
For a perfect feline flick the L'Oreal Superliner Perfect Slim is the ideal tool for the job. The precise nib may make this wonderful product look daunting and only for people that are use to applying winged eyeliner, but trust me this is the ultimate liquid liner for everyone - experienced or heavy handed. From the comfortable grip zone on the pen to the precise flex-y felt tip nib that can be swept along the eye, every aspect of this liner has been considered for ease. I can now apply this in a flash without any mistakes were as I do still struggle with most liquid liners and can't get use to that pulling feeling some can give as the liner dries. Just the ultimate liquid eyeliner for beautiful winged eyes.
Recommended to - Anyone that is looking for an intense black eyeliner... I promise you will fall in love with this!
Lanolips Lip Ointment with Colour
£8.16 - Boots here
Before Lanolips Lip Ointment I felt I owned quite a few moisturising lip colours in the form of tinted lip balms and lipsticks, but then I discovered the wonders of Lanolips and everything changed! Lanolips Lip Ointments with Colour are ultimately a hybrid of a nourishing lip balm and lip gloss. The thick formula smooths over lips without any sticky or greasy feeling and stays put for a good few hours. I own shades - Apple and Rose now and they are my go-to products during the day when my lips are feeling dry but I want to add a bit of colour still. Really an impressive lip product for the price.
Recommended to - If you are prone to dry lips but still want to enjoy pigmented lip products that won't highlight dry skin but help it then this is for you.
Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Radiant Touch Concealer
£25.00 - Feel Unique here
In my first Beauty Game Changers post I featured my ultimate favourite concealer that is perfect for blemishes but for the past 8 years this iconic golden pen has been my other love. Touche Eclat is a luxury product but one that I feel is soooo worth it. This light-medium coverage pen concealer is the most perfect concealer for brightening under the eyes and using as a non-shimmery highlighter. I like to use this on the sides of my nose and next to my eyes to brighten them but also along the high points of my face when contouring as this just does magical things. Worth every penny and more!
Recommended to - Shade No.1 is ideal for brightening up pale skin like no other product I have come across.
Seche Vite Fast Top Coat
£5.64 - Amazon here
For years I convinced myself that the cult nail product that is Seche Vite couldn't possibly be worth it (this was when most places sold it for £10+) but then discovered how cheap it could be purchased on Amazon and decided to finally give it a whirl. Since then nothing has come close to the beyond glossy finish and smoothness that Seche Vite gives. All nail art is sealed with this and glitter nail polishes get two coats of the top coat making the glitter finish perfectly smooth and glistening. I've also discovered how this sets the nails when in a rush so smudges are now a thing of the past for me. If you love painting your nails forget all top coats and try this!
Recommended to - At the price above I recommend it to anyone that uses a top coat already when painting their nails.
