When I’m away on trips with work, I don’t want to plaster a full face of make up on in a morning, especially if its the day of departure. I still can’t face meeting an entire crew for breakfast bare faced, as no one needs to see that first thing. Sometimes moisturiser just won’t cut it, as the effects of jet lag and 14 hours in a metal tube the day before plays havoc with my face. Fear not Anoushka, I have a life saver and a new saviour that will ensure I look my usual polished self but without caking on the layers and still maintaining a golden glow. Introducing Timebomb Cosmetics Holiday In A Bottle in Sunkissed*.
This quick hit of sunshine in a bottle gets rid of the ashen grey colour of my parched, flight tired skin and gives me an intense boost of tan in seconds. Whilst the formula is not a stain, false tan or a foundation, it gives a great light coverage with an instant colour. The cream formula which is grey in colour once dispensed from the tube contains micro-pigments which burst onto the skin in a delicious golden glow. The colour isn’t too dark nor too fair and is a perfect colour match for the natural tan that I do develop when I have been in the sun. A little definitely goes a long way and blends easily into the skin. As with any facial product, blending is key especially around the hair line and brows.
For me this liquid sunshine is my new skin treat whilst on trips and has become a permanent fixture in my long haul suitcase. It definitely has the Air Hostess Seal Of Approval. Matte enough to disguise any oily patches yet sheer enough to look natural with that ‘Hey, I just fell out of bed looking like this’ look. Timebomb Cosmetics Holiday In A Bottle is available in Suntanned, to give a translucsent sunny bronze and Sunkissed which is a lighter honeyed glow.
As you can see from the picture, a little goes a long way. The 30ml bottle is priced at £28 which may be pricy for some, however I feel that you can’t put a price on something that makes you feel pretty spectacular after you’ve used it. I know i’m onto a winner when other crew members comment that I’m glowing and look really healthy. That for me justifies every penny.
