The current trend of hybrid skincare/makeup has seen us demanding more and more from our makeup. Skin enhancing foundations and base products, once created to even out skin tone and cover imperfections, are now asked to blur lines, diffuse pigmentation, protect us from the sun, screens and pollution – all while rolling back the years with the help of additional skin nutrients.
Similarly, our lipsticks have also never worked harder and the quality and range of lip products has never been better.
Gone are the days of funny tasting chalky, drying, lipsticks and glosses with chunks of grit and the power to glue down a toupee, driving us mad grabbing every last stray strand of hair!
Lately we’ve been welcoming everlasting, non-drying matte lipsticks like the incredible Maybelline Superstay Vinyl Ink (€14.95 on CloudBeauty) and ‘chic gloss’ like the ultra comfortable and lightweight ‘Posh Gloss’, by Victoria Beckham Beauty
