Black-ish Products for Halloween

October 26, 2015


I've been seeing a lot of gorgeous Halloween tutorials all over the internet, I especially love watching them on Youtube. For a split second I thought of doing a look myself, but then rather decide to write a Halloween inspired blog post. I gathered up some absolutely gorgeous products that have one thing in common - they are all black. Some more than other. And isn't black the colour of Halloween?
I didn't actually plan this but seeing the products I can easily make some sort of a routine. This will not be a whole routine, just some bits and bobs. Black bits and bobs. Now let's start with scaaary product of the bunch. Which in reality isn't scary at all but it goes with the theme. An actuall black looking product is the Bohemian Harvest Japanese Charcoal, Sea Kelp + Clay Mask. This detoxifying and rejuvenating mask is a great way to start the prep for applying skincare and makeup. Do a little selfie while wearing it, that should start the scariest night of the year even earlier. Like I was saying in the post where I've reviewed Northern Soap*, activated charcoal is an amazing detoxifying ingredient. This acne fighting ingredient draws bacteria and dirt. Thinking about it, the mask would be even better to use after removing and washing all that makeup you'll probably wear on the night. The mask draws out impurities and helps to maintin clear and healthy skin. It's also quite drying on the skin so a moisture boost is definitely a must.
Two product that give your skin that much needed moisture are Kahina Giving Beauty Serum* (review) and Herbfarmacy Mallow Beauty Balm*. You will only need one because both are greatly hydrating. They have gorgeous scents! Serum smells chamomily sweet and oh so relaxing. It has a light texture and an array of amazing ingredients. The balm is absolutely wonderful and makes my skin nourished, smooth and soft like baby's bottom. Yes, that soft. Well maybe you can be a scary, creepy baby this Halloween. You'll already have the skin for it. Interested in knowing more? Review here. You can use them on your lips as well or rather apply a heavy moisturizing lip balm.
One of the most gorgeous lip balms I've ever used is the Henne Organics Luxury Lip Balm*. It's luxury all right. Immensely nourishing and absolutely amazing. Review here. Another beautiful lip balm in black packaging is the Ecoya Lip Balm, a pepperminty goodness. You know the term "shopping my stash"? Well, this balm was rediscovered in my stash and I've been very much enjoying it lately. I also mention it in this post if you wanna know a bit more.

Leave these oil-based products to sink into the skin before applying makeup and in the meantime use a nice body lotion or butter. Metta Skincare Body Butter* is a wonderful body butter and my favourite I've ever used! It's beyond nourishing and makes my skin amazingly soft and smooth. It has a texture like no other balm has. It's not as oily and soft as other balms are but it's more on the dry and grainy side. Obviously it still turns into oil when applied to the skin. It's just so darn unique and divine! I adore this beautiful black or should I rather say monochrome product.

Last but certainly not least is a bit of makeup. I could have picked black eyeliner or nail polish but that would be to obvious. I don't know why I still haven't wrote a review on the Lily Lolo Laid Bare Eye Palette (SI, ENG) but ever since I first laid my eyes on it I knew I have to get it. Palette has a beautiful selection of neutral, brown shades. Most of them have satin finish, some also contain a bit of glitter, but nothing excessive. A super luxurious product I've been mentioning all the time lately, is the Gressa Skin Lip Boost in Regal*. The most stunning reddish brown shade that lasts all day long on my cheeks and has been my fave colour this autumn. I'll leave you with your own imagination for the look you can use Regal, but I'll let you know for which Halloween custome I'd use Gressa Skin Luminous Complexion Fluid in Ameila. For pumpkin. Or Garfield. Or tiger. Yes, Amelia is an orange shade. With a bit shimmer. Super pigmented and easily blendable. There, this is my first impression on it. You can see how it looks on me here.

Okay ladies, that's all from me today. I hope you enjoyed this little Halloween inspired post! :)

Love you lots,

Jana xx
