I’m a beauty junkie. There I said it. I’m addicted to beauty products and have amassed an extensive collection. My boyfriend is always telling me to downsize (this isn’t limited to beauty products but also SHOES). But i’m not willing to curb my obsession quite yet. Recently I’ve discovered a few new favourites that i’m in love with. The beauty market has come on leaps and bounds in the last decade. Long gone are the days when there were no beauty options for those with a caribbean heritage now there are tonnes. So these are the four products i’m currently obsessed with.
The Ordinary Foundation
This may be the best budget foundation out there. It could give Chanel a run for its money. Available in a wide array of shade and two formulas (serum for a lighter look and coverage for a fuller coverage). It is also free of parabens, sulphates, mineral oil, methylchloroisothiazolinone, methylisothiazolinone, animal oils, benzalkonium chloride, coal tar dyes, formaldehyde, mercury, oxybenzone. At £6 a bottle it is very good value.

L’oreal Paris Pure Clay Detox Mask
I was very impressed with this mask. The scent is neutral and doesn’t overpower your senses. The consistency makes it easy to apply. This product was great to use. Went on easily, dried quickly and left my skin feeling clean, smooth and detoxed. My complexion looked a lot brighter, my skintone was more even and my foundation went on easier and more smoothly.
Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Duo
Light up where you want, when you want. Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter was born to reflect your every mood with its line-up of luminising solos and duos. With a dose of skin-glorifying colour, Killawatt ranges from subtle day glow to insanely supercharged, with shades that were designed for all skin tones.
Unlike your everyday highlighter, Killawatt keeps skin lit beyond sundown with its weightless long-wear formula – a cream-powder hybrid that instantly melts into skin and blends with almost zero effort. Another win, it’s loaded with superfine shimmer for an ultra smooth, creamy texture.
For killer radiance, Killawatt’s your go-to for highlighting your face, eyes, lips, collarbone… literally anywhere you crave a touch of light.
