Even though it is not too warm outside, I am in quite a summer day mood. At least, I am stocking up on those summer day necessities when it comes to beauty items. Scrolling through Instagram a couple of weeks ago, I stumbled across a very cool photograph of a lip by the brand Kjaer Weis. I am sure, you’ll be able to imagine which colour was featured on the displayed lip. Well, yes it was this incredibly beautiful pale red colour called Affection. Hence, I couldn’t do anything but getting my hands on it. In addition, I made another beauty purchase, switching up my travel-friendly face powder game.
1/2 The Lipstick
To say the least, the Kjaer Weis lipstick only arrived a few days ago. Since then, I have been wearing it non-stop. In addition to getting compliments from every single person I saw on this beautifully refreshing summer colour, the colour truly is a dream. The texture applies smoothly onto moisturised lips and the colour is rather matt. I truly adore Kjaer Weis lipsticks. You might be able to remember me wearing the classic red of the brand during the winter season.
Kjaer Weis lipsticks offer a natural way to enhance the colour of your lips. The lipsticks are not drying since they contain ingredients like shea butter and jojoba oil which are activated by the temperature of your lips.
“While the coverage is opaque, the pale red colour is inspired by the natural flush of a bare lip. So you look like yourself, but with the volume turned up.” – Kirsten Kjaer Weis
2/2 The Powder
Furthermore, I got my hands on a new powder to go into my handbag. I was carrying around a pretty old powder which desperately needed replacement. Now, I opted for the non-toxic Radiant Translucent Powder in Moondance by Ilia. A natural makeup brand I sincerely love. In addition, I chose to go for the SPF containing version because, in my opinion, you cannot protect your skin enough, especially in summer.
The face powder stick is super handy since you are able to apply the powder directly onto your face with the attached brush. A big benefit is the fact that you are able to detach the brush to clean it. It is definitely a joy to be using such a handy beauty product while being constantly on the run. Most importantly, the travel-friendly powder gives you the option to reset your makeup look on the go. Fine pearl pigments create a luminous looking skin throughout the entire day. Lastly, it looks super pretty in my bag and will look equally beautiful in yours.
Ingredients-wise, the face powder contains the benefits of Aloe Vera with light essential oils of Rosemary and Thyme. The extracts of the Hibiscus Flower provide the skin with antioxidant properties and the non-nano zinc oxides act as the perfect SPF protection.
