If you’ve been following me for a while, you know beauty & skincare is my weakness. I feel like it was after uni that I had made the transition not only to start looking into makeup but also really spend the time to take care of skin. I’m also really lucky to receive products from companies to test and try out. All that said, since I haven’t written any favourites articles for a while, I thought it would be nice to make a list of some discoveries from the past three months.  

欸對,好像好久沒寫選物月刊類的文章了。認識我的人都知道,保養彩妝是我的最大的弱點,自從大學畢業後開始接觸,每隔一段時間都會想嘗試新東西,也很榮幸能收到許多品牌寄來的公關品。所以呢,決定把這過去一到三個月陸續入手、收到的新發現整理出最愛六樣與大家分享,快來看看吧。看完文章後,也歡迎你們分享你們近期喜愛的產品唷,很想知道呢!

 

one. Armani face fabric foundation 

I must admit, I have only started using this foundation for three weeks, but man, I’m hooked. I love the mousse texture along with the semi-matte look. It’s one of the most natural matte foundations I’ve come by. It’s so lightweight, and yet it covers just enough for a comfortable everyday look. I remember right after the two days of wearing it, I can’t help to recommend it to my girlfriends. I use to complain not being able to find the perfect Armani foundation for me (I mean who doesn’t want Georgio Armani on our vanity, right?), and the search is finally over. 

我和大多數女孩一樣,都希望自己的梳妝台上能有一瓶 Armani 粉底,不過在今年以前都呈現一種碰壁的狀態。連試了兩款都割愛轉送因為實在太不適合自己(淚)一直到上個月逛 Sephora 的時候發現了這款號稱像丹寧褲般舒適的 second skin 慕斯粉底,這三週幾乎天天用,持妝與妝感都好滿意。一碰到肌膚就會化成粉末(觸感有點像以前植村秀泡沫防曬的感覺),完妝後是天生好膚的微霧感,基本上小瑕疵也都遮得不錯。因為我本身保濕都做得很足,所以雖然是乾肌但目前也都沒什麼問題,整天下來維持得也挺好的。啊,終於能大聲說我找到我的命定 GA 粉底了呢。大家台灣上市一定要去靠櫃試試看。


 

Two. Perricone MD No highlighter Highlighter 

Perricone MD has been releasing a range of No Makeup Makeup products for a while. It’s a series of product with skincare in mind while providing the bare face illusion ⏤ the ‘I woke up like this‘ look. And my pick of the bunch will be the No Highlighter Highlighter. I wear this all time, even when I have no foundation one, it gives you that natural baby skin look, which I personally really love. However, if you’re looking for something with the greatest lighting strobe, this may not be your taste. 

這半年開始陸陸續續入手了不少 Perricone MD 的彩妝系列。 由皮膚醫生起家的品牌,近幾年推出了許多以護膚為首要構想的化妝品,偽素顏光澤肌是他們的主要走向。而在梳妝台上幾樣產品(修容、腮紅、睫毛膏、粉底精華等)中,翻牌率最高的就是這瓶液狀偽打亮。就算沒上粉底的時候,在 C 字部位、鼻樑處上點,就會有種肌底透光的自然妝感,特別是膚況好的時候,很像小 baby 的膚質。當然,如果是追求要有很顯眼光澤的產品,那麼就不建議你列入考量了唷。


Three. Sisely restorative day & night cream

At the end of last year, I had the most serious skin allergic reaction. It was really confusing since I had cut off seafood from my diet ages ago. After seeing the dermatologist, he told me it was something I applied. So I spent the time to look into my skincare/ makeup products and decluttered my vanity. And the Restorative Day & Night Cream was the only moisturiser I kept. It’s incredibly moisturising, and yet still really gentle on the skin and not only I had fully recovered, but it also made my skin texture better. I’m currently in my third jar, so you know how much I love it!

大約在去年底的時候,我的肌膚開始過敏的非常嚴重,花了一個多月的時間才復原。當時還滿無助的,因為有測過過敏原,所以在飲食上已經十分小心,海鮮也戒了將近一年。後來實在是沒辦法,只好去看皮膚科醫生(我是個很不喜歡醫院的人,所以通常能免則免),才發現應該是某個經塗抹而接觸肌膚的產品。我花了點時間過濾平常使用的保養、美妝產品,經過篩選,Sisely 的植物修護面霜我唯一留下的乳霜類產品。姑且不論滋潤效果,光是修護程度就足以讓驚艷;不只泛紅、過敏等症狀舒緩成功,皮膚觸感也跟著提升了。這樣說吧,目前已用光兩罐,第三瓶也快見底,大概就是這麼愛(笑)


 

Four. Fancl mild cleansing gel 

Another one of my post-allergic survival kit. I bought this Fancl cleansing gel during my last trip to Tokyo. It says mild, gentle & good for sensitive skin on the packaging which I figured will be perfect for me. Fancl is a Japanese brand known for using the most natural ingredients and still delivers the best face forward. Finally, I get to remove makeup without stinging or irritation.  

另一個幫助我度過過敏非常期的產品。Fancl 的 mild cleansing gel (在台灣官網上找不到,但日本和英文網站上確定有)是在東京旅行的時候購入的。包裝盒上寫適合敏感肌使用,當時通行的朋友也推薦,便決定試試看。無添加防腐劑用起來特別安心,而且卸妝的過程中完全不熏眼,兩月下來洗完臉不會緊繃、刺痛或泛紅,同持又能成功把彩妝帶走。真的是敏感兒童的好朋友。


 

Five. Marc Jacobs mascara

I’m not a big fan of full-on, volumised mascara. I love to have them thin, natural, semi feather-like. So I’m sure you can imagine when I discovered the Feather Noir Ultra-skinny Lash Discovering Mascara. It gives that “your lash, but better” look, my lashes look longer but not too much. I’ve been using it almost every day for the past 3 months, that’s how much I love it! 

對於睫毛,我的追求就是自然不誇張,不需要太濃密,看起來有神就好。其實也是要感謝吳小姐生了偏豐富的睫毛跟眉毛給我與楊小妹,所以我們基本上在眼睛部分都是走一切從簡的路線。這一兩年陸陸續續試了幾款睫毛膏,但很多都覺得太浮誇、過於搶眼,一直到後來在澳洲的 Sephora 看見了這款 Marc Jacobs 纖長黑量睫毛膏,搜尋才從此告一段落。跟 mlbb 唇彩一樣的概念,看起來就是自己本身的睫毛,只是更長更翹了,但不會有人看出你刷了睫毛膏的小心機。

 


 

 

Six. Glossier body hero daily oil wash

All my friends know I’m a sucker for glossier products. I love their minimal packaging. The beauty balm is an all-time favourite, and now I can say the Body Hero Daily Oil Wash is one too. I was once told a proper moisturisation starts in the shower, and now I finally get it! 

我是 glossier 的超級粉絲(笑),每次到紐約都絕對會到他們的 showroom 轉一圈。粉色的極簡包裝太讓人著迷,加上產品通常都保有中上的品質,所以一直是梳妝台上的常客。品牌的玫瑰味護唇膏是最愛的必備品,但最近開始嘗試的 Body Hero 沐浴油 好感度也直線上升中。以椰子油為主要基底,不只潔膚,還提前在沐浴的過程中進行保濕的動作,出了淋浴間完全不會覺得皮膚緊繃、乾燥,令人喜愛。
