Too Faced Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer
If you are looking for a do-it-all concealer, the Too Faced Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer is your best pick. This liquid concealer conceals, contours, highlights, and retouches to leave you with a flawless finish that is like your own skin but better. It is also infused with coconut water, alpine rose, and hyaluronic acid to pack a punch in the hydration department.
“This concealer is my holy grail! It can be applied sheer or packed on for a seriously long-lasting flawless finish. Also, it blends so well and does not crease even throughout the day. The best part is that it is so lightweight that I use it to replace my foundation at times! I use this concealer in a darker shade (Butterscotch) around the perimeter of my face before applying a lighter shade (Warm Sand) on the centre of my face.”
Charlotte Tilbury Glowgasm Face Palette – Lovegasm
This face palette is all you need to add an illuminating touch to your makeup. With four lustrous shades, this palette contains a neutral cocoa bronzer, a rosy blush and two high-shine highlighters to enhance your skin, leaving it with a diffused, soft-focus finish.
“If there is one product from Charlotte Tilbury that I love, it has to be the Glowgasm Face Palette in Lovegasm. I love versatile palettes and this palette delivers just that. Whenever I am in a rush, this palette is the quick fix-me-up I need to complete a full face of makeup.”

What’s more, it is packed with antioxidants and marine extracts to nourish your skin and reveal a luminous, even-toned complexion. It even made the list of Beauty Insider’s top August beauty launches!
“This cleanser is my go-to whenever I need to give my skin a break. It does the job of deeply cleansing my skin without stripping away my skin’s natural oils. Plus, it is suitable for all skin types and you do not have to worry about any nasties in this cleanser’s formula. I am in love with this cleanser.”

“This translucent powder works wonders when it comes to mattifying the skin and keeps oil slick away. I like how this powder doesn’t give me an ashy look on my medium-tan skin and I always use this to set my concealer.”
