What’s hot in our beauty hit list: Honest thoughts and top beauty stories we’re swooning over. 

As we’re in the midst of Phase 2 of the post-circuit breaker measures, some of us might be slowly enjoying life outside again or perhaps you still need time to readjust. Whether you’re heading out or staying in, we’ve got a great mix of fun beauty products to try. Read on for reviews on a light-coverage foundation, an interesting steaming hair mask, a sparkly gel eyeliner, a couple of on-the-fence products and more.  Presenting: Our best beauty buys of July!

Liht Organics Youth Elixir Liquid Foundation

This is a light coverage yet relatively long-lasting foundation – great for a minimal makeup look, good skin days, and makeup newbies who are wary of caking on too much foundation all at once. For a more flawless finish, I’d build it up or add some concealer. It’s surprisingly good at controlling shine: I used it without a powder and it lasted longer than I expected. Plus, the brand gets brownie points for making products that are organic and cruelty-free.

Expect great pigmentation and staying power with this black liquid liner. It lives up to its smudge proof claims, though it can flake a little by the end of the day. The packaging is a tad less handbag-friendly compared to your typical liquid liner pen, but I like the grip that the sturdier packaging provides. Together with the stiff brush tip, it makes it easier to get the perfect wing. Psst: 5% of proceeds from each sale goes to the Marine Conservation Institute to support efforts to protect ocean ecosystems!
