Welcome to our favourite products. A monthly feature in which Mashion staffers discuss our favourite products — ones we’ve tried all month long, reviewed, treasured and kept at the top of our makeup bag (before we’ve gotten the chance to get sick of them and move on to other products – because we all know that happens). A new month calls for new products and in that spirit – let’s get shopping!
AI Cream by Physiogel
“I have never had a nighttime routine or an opinion on any skincare products before I met Phsyiogel AI Cream. Now, I never hit the bed before putting this all over my face. I feel it really lets my skin breath overnight (the best time for any skincare products I hear) and my face is oily-free by the time I wake up in the morning. Another thing I love about it is that it helps soothe my skin if I’m having a bad reaction to anything.” – Rimsha Shafiq
Suitable for: Dry, irritated or reactive skin.
Shop here, or at local drugstores.
Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm by Clinique
“I love this stuff! It’s so gentle on my skin and the lightweight formula quickly dissolves all my makeup from the day. With winter around the corner, your face needs all the hydration it can get and this balm is anything but drying, but still manages to get every last speck of making off!” – Seher Hafeez
Suitable for: All skin types.
Shop here, or at Springs grocery store.
Le Volume De Chanel by Chanel
“As someone who really doesn’t know how to use mascara, I would say this is a true hero product. A friend recommended it over the summer and I’ve been hooked since! The thin straight wand helps make my lashes look long and since I’m not a fan of dramatic lashes, I love that this mascara gives a more natural look but still transforms your lashes like no other. The best part is it doesn’t clump or flake off at all. Definitely a product worth splurging on!” – Maha Rizvi
Zero Make Up Palette by Nabila
“Who can resist a palette, which promises you two important things: a natural look and a radiant glow (that too in a mere 60 seconds)! It’s my all-in- one-hassle-free palette that I’ve been using for over a year and haven’t looked back ever since. I use the shade ‘Crème’ and I feel it blends perfectly with my skin tone (medium to light). It also covers my acne flawlessly – how can I resist?” – Almas Sheikh
Shop here, or at Nabila salons nationwide.
Ginger Matte Liquid Lipstick by Kylie Cosmetics
“Matte lipsticks just make sense. It leaves no mess on your pillows, cups, clothes or other people’s faces. Besides being the perfect fall colour, it is long lasting and suits all skin tones (at least in my opinion!) Let’s talk about long lasting again since that’s what we really care about when it comes to lipsticks: it literally stays put until you I have a strategy to take it off.” – Khulood Akbari
