Once social distancing began, I began to experiment with my less frequently used products. I now have new-found favourite items that I must share with the readers at CUB. At CUB Magazine, fashion and beauty never rests here. Check out the awesome items that were beloved in March:
Glow Recipe: Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer (£19.50) – Vinny Sandhu, Style & Beauty Writer
I think this moisturizer is pretty damn amazing. I hate heavy moisturizers when the weather begins to change, and this became the perfect solution when I needed a change. It is very lightweight and is oil-free which helps with my T-Zone and cheeks. It has a cooling and gel-like formula which means my pores have a little relief from being clogged. I highly recommend this for those with oily or combination skin.
Gucci: Rouge à Lèvres Voile Lipstick (25 Goldie Red) (£34.00) – Vinny Sandhu, Style & Beauty Writer
This is a more moisture-rich lipstick than a pigmented one. March was filled with sudden changes and assignments, so I didn’t really have the chance to wear full-glam, and this lipstick really helped with adding a bit of color to my face. It is a bold color in a sheer formula. This made me feel as if I was transported back a few decades and worked well on my cheeks whenever I lost my blushes in the changes the month presented.
Chanel: Healthy Glow Sheer Color Stick (Blush N°23) (£35.00) – Vinny Sandhu, Style & Beauty Writer
I am very picky about which blushes I purchase. This one has proven to give to me a natural glow without making me look like an E-Girl. If you want strong pigment, this is not the one for you, but it is if you just want a touch of color. It is also luminous and sculpts your cheeks in such a way that enhances your natural glow.
Morphe: M330 Blending Crease Brush (£7.00) – Vinny Sandhu, Style & Beauty Writer
This is my go-to blending brush. I can’t believe it took me a couple of months to warm up to it. I could have had even better blends ages ago. This is a fluffy blending brush with a define tapered point. This will vanquish any harsh lines and is best used to snatch your final blend.
Jo Malone: Peony & Blush Suede Cologne (£48.00) – Vinny Sandhu, Style & Beauty Writer
I got this alongside my candle, and I am so happy they included this in my purchase. If you love more floral fragrances, then I highly recommend this one. It is not overbearing since the peonies are quite delicate. You get that touch of sweetness with the red apple and a little bit of warmth with the jasmine, gillyflower and rose. An excellent sensual scent that makes you feel exquisite.
John Lewis & Partners: Gemma T-Shirt Bra (Riviera Blue) (£28.00) – Vinny Sandhu, Style & Beauty Writer
This is one of the most comfortable bras I have ever worn. I guess it’s true when they say with age comes a better understanding of what bras are comfortable. This bra offers support and a seamless structure. It’s a staple for any lingerie collection. You will love this new everyday bra.
