Iman Khamissa: My 15 favourite beauty products


by Iman Khamissa
23rd Mar 2023

Beauty, fashion and lifestyle content creator Iman Khamissa shares her beauty staples, from luxury fragrance dupes to affordable make-up staples.

When it comes to the beauty and cosmetics world there is so much out there, but I definitely have a few products that I swear by. If you end up getting any of these, I hope you love them as much as I do!

Iman Khamissa

Vichy Mineral 89 Hyaluronic Acid Booster Serum, €20.25

One of my holy grail skincare products is the Vichy Mineral 89, I was introduced to this product months ago and honestly, my skin has never been so hydrated and glowy! Make sure it’s the first product you apply after your cleanser and give it 2 to 3 minutes before your next skincare step! I use this in my morning and night routine.

Iman Khamissa

Skinceuticals C E Ferulic Vitamin C Serum, €191.45

Another must-have skincare product is Skinceuticals C E Ferulic Vitamin C Serum, this is great if you have dry skin. Vitamin C is a must, especially in the morning because it brightens and protects your skin.

Iman Khamissa

La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Balm B5+ Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm, €16

My last must-have skincare item if you get blemishes is the La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Balm B5 which is great for spot treatment and really helps reduce redness.

Iman Khamissa

ELF Cosmetics Poreless Putty Primer, €9

When it comes to a primer if you are looking for one that keeps your skin glowy then the ELF Cosmetics Poreless Putty Primer is the one for you. It’s affordable and for dry skin it’s the best.

Iman Khamissa

Dior Forever Skin Glow Foundation, €56.50

There are so many foundations out there but at the moment because its practically still winter, I need that extra hydration, so if you are looking for a luxury high-end foundation then Dior Forever Skin Glow is my favourite. It’s light to medium coverage and gives the perfect glow.

Iman Khamissa

ELF Cosmetics Halo Glow Liquid Filter Foundation, €15

If you are wanting an affordable foundation then the ELF Cosmetics Halo Glow Liquid Filter Foundation is a must. The coverage is buildable and it gives a beautiful glow.

Iman Khamissa

Nars Orgasm Powder Blush, €37

Everyone has a favourite blush but Nars Orgasm Powder Blush has been a favourite since I was a teenager. It’s the perfect pink and I always get compliments when I use it.

NYX Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Concealer, €9.20

I love me an affordable one and NYX Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Concealer is a dupe to Tarte. It’s full coverage and creamy. I have bought this multiple times because it’s just too good. You can even use the darker colours as a cream bronzer.

Dior Backstage Glow Face Palette, €51.50

I have tried so many highlighters but my absolute favourite one is the Dior Backstage Glow Face Palette and trust me it is worth every penny! I will definitely repurchase this product because I love the glow it gives.

Essence I Love Extreme Volume Mascara, €3.80

When it comes to mascara it’s all about length and volume for me. The winner is the Essence I Love Extreme Volume mascara, the hot pink bottle. It’s affordable and takes your lashes to another level.

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray, €35

My go-to setting spray is the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray, because it gives an amazing glow and sets my makeup to last the whole day.

Penneys PS… 3D Allure Lashes, €3

I have small eyes so I need pick me up lashes and the 3D Allure Lashes from Penneys are affordable, simple and an absolute favourite.

NYX Cosmetics Butter Gloss in Madeleine, €7

I am a gloss girl, and I love the NYX Cosmetics Butter Gloss range, especially the nude pink shade Madeleine. The only gloss I will rebuy for sure.

Massimo Dutti Grey Evening Eau De Parfum, 100ml, €45

When it comes to perfumes I am very selective but I love when it has a woody oud scent but is also subtle at the same time. I love Massimo Dutti Grey Evening, a Tom Ford dupe.

Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede, 50ml, €88

However, if you are looking for a floral scent then it’s worth it to splurge on Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede. Trust me!
