The L.A Girl Pro HD Pressed Powder is a new addition to my stash and it also has a post coming up on it very soon on the blog. It's a new release from La Girl cosmetics and I love this matte, oil free formula for setting my makeup and keeping me shine free for long hours of the day with minimum touch up. I do get very oily on rainy days when the humidity rises uncontrollably. Clean and Clear Oil Control Sheets is a holy grail product when it comes to people with oily skin and it's no different for me. I love using this before setting my face with the HD powder to remove any excess oil and dirt. I've seen a lot of high end versions of these oil absorbing sheets and this one does it's job just as well. Lips! Finding a good lipstick that stays on has become a little bit easier in the past year or so, thanks to the sudden rise of the liquid lipsticks. This one is called Ultra Velour Lip Cream by Makeup Revolution in the shade 'Can't we just make love instead' which is the perfect nudey pink/peach, everyday shade and stays on through meals and pouring rain too.
Some products that are possibly my favourites from this list are these little, perfume sample wipes! The ones I have are called Evidence by Yves Rocher and a lot of perfume stores will give them to you if you ask them or they sometimes come with magazines and I think it's a very nifty way of freshening up your perfume by rubbing it on your wrist, neck etc after you've just been caught in the rain. It is a great staple(on hot, sunny days even). If you're like me and love carrying around the tiniest satchels/clutches, you'll know the pain of fitting a perfume into them. These wipes perfectly solve that problem and I keep stocking them in a box. Last but not the least, I couldn't make this post without mentioning my favourite hair serum for a while now by Ogx called 'Brazilian Keratin therapy' because it has been a huge saviour for keeping the frizz off my extra fine, straight hair. If it wasn't for this product, I would be 'Barbados Monica' on the daily especially on rainy mornings.
That wraps up this little beauty post all about rainy day makeup & beauty products that I think are a great idea to keep in your handbag. I hope you enjoyed reading this.
