There’s no better pastime than testing out the coolest new skincare/makeup/hair trends and snazzy innovations in beauty tech from the comfort of your own home. That said, there’s nothing more frustrating than spending upwards of £100 on a new at-home facial system or snazzy pair of hair straighteners, only to find out they don’t *actually* work.
Enter GLAMOUR Tries: the weekly Instagram series which sees GLAMOUR editors do all of the time-consuming (and expensive) work for you.
Yep, we’ve been busy trying out all of the wacky and wonderful beauty crazes to take the internet (read: TikTok) by storm – from FaceGym’s Faceshot Electrical Microneedling Device (the skin tool of dreams) to Isle Of Paradise’s Pro-Glow Spray Tan Mister and Larry King Hair Care’s Flyaway With Me Kit. These are the products every influencer/Gen-Z beauty slueth/beauty editor is talking about on the internet – but that you want to be sure about before parting with your money.
Thanks to GLAMOUR Tries, you won’t need to waste your hard-earned pennies on testing these innovations yourself. We’re getting in their first, giving you the lowdown and making sure you invest in products that genuinely work. Like what you see? You can shop all of the products seen on GLAMOUR tries in previous weeks down below. Race ya?
On GLAMOUR Tries this week, Commerce Editor Sophie Cockett tested out the rainbow contouring hack where you apply all your products at once (in an arched formation) and blend it out to achieve a flawless makeup look all in one. Inspired by @rikkisandhuu‘s video on Instagram, Sophie used Huda Beauty’s #FauxFilter Skin Finish Buildable Coverage Foundation Stick in the shades Angel Food, Coconut and Peanut Butter, as well as Glossier’s Cloud Paint in the shade Beam.
“This hack essentially involves using cream foundation, concealer/contour and blusher to strategically draw lines all over your face to create the perfect base.” Sophie says. “I’m using three shades of Huda Beauty’s #FauxFilter Skin Finish Buildable Coverage Foundation Stick, one which I’d use as an everyday foundation, one which is a lot lighter for the concealer and one which is darker for contouring.”
Sophie applies each product, following the directions and placements of the video. She then blends it out and gives her final thoughts: “I actually don’t mind it. I thought that I’d gone too dark with the contour but now that it’s blended out it kind of works! I didn’t put blusher on my forehead like she does in the video though, and I didn’t really have a pink enough blusher to go on my cheeks so that was probably my only mistake. Other than that, it was really quick and easy so I’m impressed!”
Would you give the rainbow contour hack a go? Would you use the Huda Beauty foundation stick and Glossier Cloud Paint? Have you already tried them? Let us know your thoughts over on Instagram @glamouruk.
