I wasn’t planning to do any round up posts but then I got thinking about how many amazing products and brands I’ve discovered this year, both new finds and previous loves. Not of all these products are new releases just items that I’ve been wearing a lot this year, here goes…
I’ve always been a fan of Essie polishes and this year I discovered ‘Sole Mate’– the perfect wine red and ‘Summit of Style’ a rose gold glitter – a dreamy combo together too! I picked up Formula X ‘Heart-Stopping’whilst in Paris back in September and adore the formula as well as the iced blue/lilac shade, a great winter colour!
I recently discovered the Dior Foreverfoundation and can honestly say it’s the best foundation that I have ever used, I will be re-purchasing as soon as this one is finished! It leaves a fresh, dewy complexion but has the perfect amount of coverage. Another foundation that I discovered during the later part of this year was the Bare Minerals Bare Skinwhich is super lightweight and dewy, a favourite for good skin days! An all time favourite of mine is theLiz Earle Signature Foundation which I know I can count on.
My choices for favourite eye products were super easy to make as I’ve discovered a few dream products this year that I wont stop using anytime soon! For brows I’ve been using the Burberry Effortless Eyebrow Definer in ‘Ash Brown’which give such a natural finish, it’s honestly amazing! I add someMAC Brow Set in ‘Brown Ebony’over the top to keep my brows in check for the day. I always seem to struggle finding a liquid eyeliner that I can really get along with, so when I found theBourjois Mega Liner ‘Black’it was love at first use and I rarely use anything else. I’ve been using theBenefit They’re Real Mascarafor around 4/5 months now and adore it, the application is great and it gives such a great finish to my lashes.
My top two BB Creams of the year go to The Body Shop All-in-one BB Cream – which is such an intriguing formula as a moisturiser then develops into a cream upon application which I love, and the Burberry Fresh Glow BB Cream in ‘Medium’ which leaves a lovely dewy finish for days when I don’t need as much coverage. In terms of primers the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer wins hands down for me as I’ve not found anything that comes close to this product, it’s worth the money in my eyes as you only need the tiniest amount each time so it lasts for ages!
