Editor's Picks of the Day: Issy & Co Creme Blush, Lip Mousse, and Highlighter Slimstick
The Alex Collection—meet the latest things we can't live without!
Just when we thought that makeup would take the backseat during these days, homegrown cosmetics brand Issy & Co. in collaboration with actress and vlogger Alex Gonzaga brings us a collection that's too hard to pass up on. After all, even though we're in face masks whenever we're out, a huge part of our time is still spent at home, or in front of a laptop for endless meetings, calls, and social Zoom sessions!
I personally gravitate towards makeup on days when I feel blah—a swipe of bright lipstick instantly makes me feel better, and makes looking at the mirror a lot more fun (vanity checks, we all do it!) Lately, I've been putting on the newest Creme Blush by Issy & Co., plus a touch of highlighter here and there using their Highlighter Slimsticks, and the addictive Lip Mousse—effortless products for glamming up at home!
The Creme Blush
We have to say that the packaging itself is reason enough to try it, packed in sleek, modern, chic cases that are a shoo-in for your collection. The Creme Blush comes in five pretty shades, and has SPF 15, to give you a rosy, youthful glow with just a few dabs using your fingertips. If you want a more even application, you can try to use a sponge! It's lightweight, blendable, and buildable, and doesn't leave skin looking oily or cake-y. Since it's multi-use, you can even use it as eyeshadow. Available in five shades: Femme Rose, Good Girl, Fever, Stunner, and Scandal.
The Highlighter Slimsticks
I personally don't know anyone who doesn't like highlighters—they're an easy way to brighten up one's face, and can literally make you shine! When placed on the right spots of your face (cheek bones, nose bridge, cupid's bow), these highlighters are able to lend a glow that's not easy to achieve with just powder or blush. This formula is a sheer highlighter that has ultra-fine pearlescent particles that gives you a lit-from-within glow. Its soft cream texture sticks on the face effortlessly, creating a natural look. Available in three shades: Celestial, Cosmic, and Stellar.
The Lip Mousse
And because super matte, super sticky lipsticks are out, lightweight, feathery formulas like this are in. This is a soft lip mousse that gives off intense pigments minus the weight. Infused with rosehip oil and vitamin E, this lippie helps maintain soft, youthful textured lips. It has SPF 15 too, and and can be buildable depending on how intense you want it to be. Available in six shades: Babe, Rom Com, Fiancee, Rose Brown, Smoked Blush, and Private.
