Most Popular Beauty Products Right Now

These are only some of the most popular products right now. By that, I mean they're the most raved about products, and they're on every, say, 10 beauty blogger's & vlogger's  'Favorites' or 'Holygrail' list.

I wanted to add more in this collage, but I just couldn't remember any other products. It's like my mind wanted to hide them from me. No, I don't believe in all that 'ignorance is bliss' nonsense.

  • Ben Nye Banana Luxury Powder (Price- Rs.400+) ~ It became an instant internet sensation when every makeup enthusiast saw Kim K's makeup artist used it to set her concealer under her eyes. He highlighted & contoured her face (not an out of the ordinary technique if you're familiar with Kevyn Aucoin's work). Now everybody on Youtube is using this powder, and contouring & highlighting like Kim K & pretend it's their original idea *sigh*.  I'm drawn to the yellow-ish shade because I used to love using a yellow Kryolan Loose Powder (do try that one if other powders make you look ashy). Btw, Inglot also have similar yellow-ish/peachy loose powders. 

  • Seche Vite Top Coat (Price- Rs.500+) ~ Is it the world's finest top coat? Many beauty & nail polish junkies seem to think so. I think I want this the least out of all these products..... but I want to try it.

  • La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo (Rs.950-1000 in India) ~ Since last year, I'd been looking for it & still have not got it. I've been seeing it everywhere! It's very popular in the UK. When I moved here, I started reading a few UK beauty blogs, and almost all of them are raving about this. They say it really does help clear out pimples & blemishes. I NEED IT! Always 'Out Of Stock' in Boots, btw. I have to get it online.

  • Bioderma Crealine H2O (Around Rs.900 for a 500ml bottle) ~ Gentle cleanser/makeup remover. This baby has put this French brand on the map! Is it oil? Is it water? Is it oily water? I gotz to know!

  • MAC Candy Yum Yum Lipstick (Price- Rs.990) ~ This bright neon pink matte lippie was a limited edition item which came out with the Quite Cute Collection in 2011. By popular demand, it is now part of the permanent line. Woohoo! I'm happy even though I got it in 2011, and have done a look with it here & swatched it here

  • Beauty Blender Sponge (Price- around Rs.980) ~ Dampen it.... bounce it.....roll it....dab it....that's how you use it to blend face products with it for a flawless finish. It has a suede texture and its unique curves fit the contours of your face. So darn pricey for a sponge BUT everybody loves it, wants it. I want to squeeze - no, pinch - it.

  • Moroccan Oil (Price- Rs.2000+) ~ This is old news, but I have not mentioned it before, so I will now. It is Moroccan Argan Oil for hair. It not only claims to make your hair healthier, it claims to reduce drying time as well. I hadn't even heard of argan oil until this came along, and now all hair care brands have copied it. BUT original is original &  first is first, okay? Nobody will care if you & I are the next people to climb Mount Everest. But good God, look at that price!

 

Yes, I MUST have ALL of them! Follow the herd to greener prettier pastures.
You joining, or are you already there?

  5. Want LRP Effaclar duo and beauty blender. But this Moroccanoil is not pure argan oil. It just has a little amount of Argan oil and loads of silicones!

    1. Everybody keeps saying the same thing Dollie. Now I'm not sure if I still want to try it, esp with the heavy price tag.

  7. I am using the seche top coat and it is amazing. It dries as soon as it hits the nails... no more waiting for nails to dry. Love it. So scared it will get over...

  8. I think the real argan oil from aura cacia or anyother brand is better than that one above,Cynthia!That one has silicones in it,so if you have fine hair,you'll suffer more since it will make your hair look limp.The original 100% argan oil one is better imo,you get what you've paid for that:)

  9. Give Seche Vite a miss Cynthia. Mine dried out in less than a month. It's fantastic when you initially get it but a waste of money because it dries out. Moroccan Oil and Alpha H Liquid Gold have been on my list since ages.

  12. Well I'm sure most of us share at least one product in common with your wishlist...I have 3 :-) I've wanted the Crealine water for ages n i finally got -not 1 but 2 500 ml bottles-n there was this buy 2 get 1 free offer n I chose an anti acne product from Bioderma just coz I cannot find the LRP effaclar duo anywhere...so YAY its a win win situation anyway....Also want to try Moroccan oil-i've seen knock offs but like u said what could be better than the original....so still searching for that...Im intrigued by the beauty blender-does it really create magic on the facial canvas??well i'd love to know for myself but the price kills me-I aint willing to spend so much on a sponge!!!

  13. I've always wanted to try the Ben Nye Banana Powder & Bioderma's! I have never ever heard of any bloggers or vloggers mention La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo... No idea. Great post though! Very interesting! =)

    ReplyDelete
  14. haha I found this post entertaining! I love how all beauty blogs and beauty channels are such enablers, don't you think?

    Bioderma Sensibio has been on my wishlist for months, I want it, I need to see if it's as gentle as everyone says it is. :) And I have to check out that LRPosay cream for my sister 'cause she has pimples, thanks for showing me this product! By the way, I'm sick of hearing of this Moroccan Oil, it's not even pure argan I'm guessing.

    Love how girly-colored your blog is!!

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
