Hey guys, before I glam up to ring in the new year. I wanted to share some of my favorite products that I have been loving this year. I have tried dozens of products and only my favorites have made it to this post. I hope you all enjoy!
Huda Beauty – The New Nude Palette
The Huda Beauty New Nudes Palette launched this year and was highly anticipated by everyone including myself. I love Huda’s products, so when I noticed she was dropping this pretty pink and nude pallet I had to have it! If you’re thinking about purchasing this palette and you love glitter, I say do it! You won’t be disappointed, the shades are so pigmented and perfect for a glam night out!
Fenty Beauty– Diamond Bomb All-Over Diamond Veil
This next item is from Fenty Beauty and is so extra just like I like it. It’s basically glitter highlighter with a creamy balm texture that sits nicely on the skin. I like to use this highlighter as a highlighter topper. So if I’m looking extra glitzy, I’m probably wearing my Diamond Bomb highlighter.
Victoria’s Secret Pink – Sheet Mask
I have been loving the Victoria secret pink sheet mask. I picked these mask up during one of their sales this summer and I have been hooked ever since. There’s a variety of sheet mask with some of my favorite ingredients such as charcoal, hyaluronic acid, caffeine and Tea tree oil. These sheet masks drape your skin in a moisturizing essence that makes it perfect for prepping for makeup application and makes your natural skin look radiant for those no makeup days.
Too Faced Cosmetics – Born This Way Super Coverage Concealer
Ever since Too Faced launched their new concealer, I have been hooked since day one. I was looking for a new concealer that was comparable to my Tarte Shape Tape concealer and this concealer gave Tarte a run for their money. I honestly don’t even pull for my Shape Tape concealer anymore and that’s a lot to say considering that it was my Holy grail for years before the launch of the new Born This Way concealer. I’ve noticed that with this concealer my under eyes are hydrated and plumped thanks to the Hyaluronic acid ingredient and I have less creasing than ever. I would definitely recommend this as a concealer for all skin types to try.
KKW Beauty – Creme Lipsticks
I have had a few favorite lip colors and they’re all nude lip shades. Go figure!
When Kim Kardashian announced the launch of her cream nude lipsticks I knew I had to have them. She is the queen of the “nude lip”, so I marched myself down to her century city pop-up shop and picked up a few shades and her highlighter palette and lip liners. My favorite shades are Nude 5 and Nude 7 paired with the Nude 2 and 3 lipliner for a gorgeous contoured pout.
E.l.f. Cosmetics X Alissa Ashley – Lip Gloss
Continuing on with my nude lip obsession, I also fell in love with the E.l.f. x Alyssa Ashley lipgloss In shade nude rose. It is literally the perfect brown-rose nude and looks beautiful on all skin tones. I find myself wearing this more than any other lip shade I own.
E.l.f. x That’s Heart – Heart Defensor Highlighter
Another E.l.f. product but I promise its worth it! This year, I fell in love with the Elf x That’s Heart – Heart Defensor highlighter. This highlighter is so good! It not grainy or powdery and I literally get compliments on my glow every time I wear it. Its a dual-sided Coffee ‘n Cream highlighter with beautiful undertones. I use the gold “Coffee” side for my everyday highlight and often top it off with the Fenty Diamond bomb highlighter for a little extra bit of sparkle. When I’m going for more of a cool tone look I’ll use the silver-white highlighter from the “cream” side it’s also the perfect highlighter for the inner corners of your eyes.
Kylie Cosmetics – Summer Palette
Last but certainly not least, is the Kylie Cosmetics Summer palette. I don’t think this post would be complete without mentioning this palette. I love this palette so much and pull for it everyday even when I’m creating a look from another palette. This palette has become a staple in my glam arsenal because of the everyday bronze and brown shades. The formula is incredible with beautiful shimmers and buttery smooth matte shades. The bronze shades are so special and I live for a pop of orange in my eye makeup. This has to be my favorite makeup purchase of 2018.
I had so much fun with makeup this year and I am looking forward to so much more glam in the New Year! I would love to know what your favorite products were. Comment below your favorites, so I can try and stay tuned for some exciting post for an extra glamorous 2019!
Happy New Year Babes! I love you guys!
