The first month of 2017 is almost over and I decided to share some of my beauty favourites for past 2016 with you. Some of these product are new, others I’ve been using for ages and again others I’ve discovered 2016. So here we go with my 12 beauty favourites for 2016:
If I could bathe in this stuff every day and have everything I own smell like this…. I would do it! I literally feel deep emotions when I smell this stuff… I cannot put it into words. The first time I smelled this perfume was in Puerto Banus last February and since then I can`t stop using it. It’s just incredible! I only wish it lasted more than a couple hours on the skin. You have to re-apply often which is the only negative thing about it…and the price.
2.ESTEE LAUDER X VB BRONZER ( limited edition )
The best high lighter I owned so far, I have been using it since October almost every day. If you want to read more about VB make up line for Estee Lauder, I wrote review blog post here.
3.NARSissist DUAL INTENSITY EYESHADOW PALETTE ( limited edition similar here )
This is also the first eyeshadow palette that I ever bought. You don`t get just 8 colors you get 16, because you can use them wet and dry. Taking a peek inside you have a jumbo sized mirror, totally handy if you plan on travelling with this and also a very good quality, Wet Dry eyeshadow brush.
I love this product! It gives a wonderful matte color without being drying at all. The color Bettina is perfect for a lighter skin tone. It’s subtle but definitely adds something. I got a lot of compliments when I wear it. It’s also incredibly silky and comfortable to wear, it doesn’t smudge around. It lasts a reasonably long time. It goes on so easily though and doesn’t clump up or get tacky with reapplication. I also have it in Dragon girl and Damned color.
I love this foundation. I was expecting a thicker foundation, when I used it the first time it was very watery, when I blended it out I was amazed by the coverage I really love it, it`s not oily or greasy on me and does leave a gorgeous glowy finish. So far, it is my fav foundation but I still don’t feel like it is my HG. It covers well, blends effortlessly, definitely wort trying it.
I cannot live without this product. It instantly makes you look awake when applied under the eye. It is high coverage but blends beautifully. Gives you a flawless, effortless look. Great if you go for natural look.
This is by far my favourite makeup product! I know it sounds funny to say about a white eyelash primer but omg! This stuff lifts and curls my lashes all by itself. My lashes have never looked better. No clumps or heavy feeling. I will definitely keep purchasing this. As you can see link is for the new edition, I still use the previous one, I have been using this product for more than a year. I have also used many mascaras with it and they all look incredible.
This is a great product and unlike anything I’ve used before. It does exactly what it says — gently but deeply cleans pores. I have dry skin but sometimes get clogged pores in the T-zone. Most things designed to clean pores over-dry or irritate my skin. This is just like massaging a moisturizer into your skin, yet it magically deep-cleans without stripping, without drying. I use it twice a week. Excellent stuff.
I use it as a primer instead of a moisturizer and it has seriously changed my life. It makes everything so smooth. It does brighten and give my makeup a luminous glow to it. Best product ever for cold winter period. I use it after letting my moisturizer dry then put this and rub it in and put my makeup on top. Game changer.
A couple months ago I was on a brush buying kick and then I end up buying my first eyeshadow palette ever J and I got both! It does the job of applying the product well. Both wet and dry. I prefer using it wet because I like the wet look effect on my eyes.
This brush helps give me to get perfect smokey eye look. It makes the shadow look super pigmented, it picks up a lot of color and it doesn’t fall off.
For overnight, this product does wonders. It helps diminish and soothes any skin problems regarding blemishes, pimples or zits so in the morning they are visibly smaller or simply gone. There were blemishes that gave me a hard time, so I won’t lie about it and say that they were gone overnight, but applying this product two times a day really helped calm down the area and so within two days my skin was back to normal. This will be my HG product for skin in 2016.
My favourite mousse for volume, I apply it on full length hair and blow-dry for volume. I only use a small amount so I don’t get that ‘crunch’ in my hair that can happen from mousse.
Worth every penny. The brush will last you a lifetime. The bristles intensely massage your scalp and smooth out your hair like no other.
