Hi my loves!
I’m back with a new post to talk about my absolute favorites makeup products that I was lurving this past year. I’ll be sharing my top drugstore and high end products that I’ve been obsessed with, just wanted to point out that these products either released in 2017 or products that I discovered in 2017. This past year for me has been all about discovering new products and makeup to achieve flawless smooth skin, most of these products are now holy grail status.
Let’s get in to the products shall we?!
- Foundation- Hourglass Vanish stick and Maybelline Super Stay
Both of these foundations have been my go to achieve full coverage flawless skin. Both of these foundations are oh so good to me, they both cover all of my redness and imperfections while lasting all day and leaving my skin so flawless without looking cakey, literally all I look for in a good foundation.
- Concealer- Tarte Shape Tape and Maybelline Fit me
I know Tarte shape tape is everyone’s favorite but seriously it’s for good reason, this is by far the best concealer I’ve ever tried. It’s full coverage and just magic in a tube, it’s so hard to explain unless you’ve tried it, then you know what I’m talking about, it’s just sooo good, I can’t get enough ever! I also love the fit me concealer especially on my natural makeup days it has good coverage and doesn’t leave your under eyes looking cakey, it’s my fav from the drugstore.
- Powder-RCMA No Color Powder
This powder is a dry skin girl’s dream!!! As you know I have dry skin and most powders are very matte and tend to make me look even more dry and cakey, which is what we don’t like. This powder is great for any skin type however, for dry skin it’s amazing! It’s finely milled so it’d doesn’t make you look cakey or emphasize dry patches, I can actually bake with this and it looks so good while making my concealer last all day. Typically baking is a no no for me as it makes my under eyes look so dry but this powder is just magic. Yes, it is a white powder but it goes on completely translucent hence no color powder. This is such a great powder for any skin type and skin tone and affordable too!
- Bronzer- MAC Studio Sculpt
This is my go to bronzer, I love trying new products but when it comes to bronzer this is pretty much the only product I use. Why do I love it so much? Well like I usually say I have dry skin and this powder has a gel formula that just glides on and melts into the skin like butter. When you apply this product it doesn’t even look like a powder on the skin and it looks so natural. I use the shade Delphic, it’s a warm shade that makes you look like a bronzed goddess which I’m all for that! It’s such a great bronzer and I absolutely love it!
- Highlight-Maybelline Master Chrome in Molten Gold
OMG!!!! This is probably the best drugstore highlighter ever, I must say even better than some high end highlighters. UGGGHH! It’s just soooo good! This past year I’ve really been loving a gold highlight, when Maybelline released this highlight I thought ehh why not? Oh boy I’m so glad I tried this product out because it’s amazing! Not only is it affordable but it’s so pigmented, it gives you a blinding glow, and is such a beautiful gold shade. I will say Maybelline has been coming out with straight fire this past year. They’ve been killing the game! Especially in the summer, this product gives you that rich, beaming gold glow that blinds the haters. Yeah,I said it! It’s been my go to this past year and one of my favorite products.
- Eyeshadow- Dose Of Colors Baked Browns Palette
At first, I wasn’t intrigued by this palette, yeah its pretty but I’m a warm neutral shadow lover and I have so many warm tone eyeshadows that I thought, do I really need this palette? The answer was yes, yes you do. I saw this at Ulta and something in me was telling me to get it, I’m so glad I did. I’ve been loving simple eye makeup and this has the perfect warm shades that I need for an everyday natural look but I can also, do a night time look with this palette as well. It’s also great for traveling, it has all the basic colors you need to create a look. The shadows are so soft and pigmented, and just blend like a dream, literally they blend so effortlessly, I cannot get enough of this palette.
- Lips- Kylie Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick in Candy K and Fenty Beauty Lipgloss in Fenty Glow
I will say I was not about the Kylie cosmetics hype, it took me a long time to finally try her products and only because they had a huge sale at the time. I feel like most of these products I was not about them at first lol. Anyway, there was a sale so I bought Candy k, when I tried this liquid lipstick on I was so impressed! Fist off, I love liquid lipsticks because as a mom on the go, I don’t have time to keep reapplying my lipstick and I don’t want to have to worry about my lipstick smudging while eating and drinking. Omg! it’s not only a beautiful color, that is perfect for everyday or any look but it was completely transfer proof. I can wear this all day long and it looks like I just applied the lipstick, even through eating and drinking all day. This lipstick is always in my purse, it can be a tad drying but that’s expected from a liquid lipstick, it’s sooo good. I gave into the hype and tried out a few products from Fenty Beauty and the lipgloss was one of the products that I love so much! I’m not normally a lipgloss girl but this is on another level. It’s a universal rose shade with shimmer but you can’t even feel the shimmer on your lips and it just makes your lips look plump and juicy, and it’s such a gorgeous shade. I love that it’s not sticky at all and just glides on the lips so smooth, I love this gloss for simple makeup looks, it’s gorgeous!
- Brows-Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz
This past year I tried out so many brow products but thew one that stood out was the brow wiz. I love how thin it is so I can be precise with my brows, it makes my brows look so full yet so natural. I love that the formula isn’t too waxy and it’s so easy to use, the shades work so well with the color of my brows I use the shades chocolate and warm brown and both work great! I seem to always go back to this product.
- Mascara- Maybelline Colassol Big Shot
This is my favorite mascara by far and let me tell you, I’ve tried all kinds of mascaras. I love that it’s so affordable, it gives me long and voluminous lashes which I love. What I really love is that this product lasts and it doesn’t dry out super quick so you definitely get your money’s worth. Overall it’s a really great mascara and it’s from the drugstore.
- Setting Spray- Urban Decay Chill setting spray
This has been the only setting spray I’ve used all year and for good reason. It makes my makeup last all day and look fresh all day, and when you spray it on your face, not only does it disperse a fine mist but it gives your face a cooling sensation which I love. This setting spray is great for dry skin as it doesn’t make your face feel tight or dry, it’s really perfect for dry skin.
These are all of my favorite products I’ve been loving so much this past year, even though I’m always trying out new products these were my stand out products that I cannot live without. Just want to put it out there that none of these products were sent to me, and I did buy them using my own money, I actually don’t get any products sent to me. I’m just a beauty lover who loves trying new products. Thank you so much for reading my post, I really appreciate it, and this year I’ll be really focusing more on my blog and posting more often. Talk to you soon!
