I am so happy to do this post and even happier to see other’s post as well. I love yearly favorites because you are able to see which products you used most and have actually enjoyed. This year I have found products that I actually enjoy and don’t harm my skin. Most of these products I use daily and can honestly give my opinion on it. Check out my favorites from the year and please share your post as well!
Benefit POREfessional Primer-I have to use primers in my makeup routine. My face gets oily throughout the day. Finding a primer that controls my oil is really hard. However, the Benefit POREfessional primer does exactly the job. The formula feels thick, however when you apply it to the skin, it is very lightweight. At times when I apply the primer, it feels as though its making my skin oily. However, once I apply my makeup, I don’t feel that way.
Urban Decay Setting Spray-I never realized the importance of setting sprays until this year. I didn’t really believe this makeup product would work. I was so wrong. I can not go a day without setting my face. Wearing makeup for an 8 hour period, I need my face to stay since I do not have time for touch ups during the day. The Urban Decay setting spray is not too runny, which I have found in other sprays.
Benefit They’re Real Mascara-I have tried so many mascara’s throughout my makeup journey. I have only a hand full of mascaras that I truly love. The most important thing I look for in mascara is volume. I have to have volume!! This mascara, gives me amazing volume while making my eyelashes look natural!
Colourpop Lip Products-By far the best lip products for the price. Colourpop is super affordable and the quality is worth way more! I love that they have many different lip products to choose from. The quality is amazing. I can eat and drink and the color is still there.
Anastasia Bevelery Hills Brow Definer-This hyped about product never interested me. My drugstore brow pencil worked just fine and I haven’t felt the need to venture out and get another brow product. However, recently my drugstore brow pencil ran out and I had to get a new pencil. I decided to give this product a try and see what all the hype was about. This product is amazing and works wonders. I like the shape of the brow definer. It is not like your usually pencil shape, but instead the pencil is shaped at an angle.
Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation-I have been using this foundation for over a year now and it is the only foundation I have used. I love this foundation so much! The coverage is amazing and the formula is not too thick or heavy. Also I love how my color matches the foundation perfectly. It is an oil free foundation, however, I wish it also controlled my oil throughout the day.
Tarte Tarteist Mascara-I love Tarte Products! This is not an understatement. The formulas of their products are just amazing. The Tarteist Mascara is one mascara that I love to use on a daily. The volume this mascara gives is amazing! The only con I have about the mascara, is that it is super messy. I have never used a mascara as messy as this one. However, because it works so well, I will continue to use.
Morphe 439 Brush– Makeup brushes are items that I do not typically purchase. I currently have a good set and I really only like to use those brushes. However, when I purchased the MAC Studio Fix Foundation, I knew I also wanted to get a new brush to use for it. After doing my research I found that the Morphe 439 brush would be the best. I can honestly say this brush is amazing. It is a multi use brush that can be used for different task. I normally use the brush to apply foundation or powder.
MAC Studio Fix Foundation-I have always enjoyed MAC’s Studio Fix line. However, MAC has changed the formula’s so much that its hard to really enjoy one while it last. I remember a couple of years ago I was obsessed with the MAC Studio Fix Foundation. However, MAC changed the formula and I no longer used it. I really wanted to give this foundation another chance. I love love love this foundation. The coverage is amazing and helps to control my oil through the day. I find this product goes well with other MAC products and also non-mac products as well.
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara-The one thing that really stood out to me about this mascara was the packaging. The pink champagne tube is beautiful! It really took me a while to like this mascara. For a while I didn’t think the mascara was giving me the volume I wanted. Now I love this mascara! I can go weeks with only using this mascara and no other ones. This is my mom’s favorite mascara and now I can see why!
