It’s been a hot minute since I posted anything makeup related because I haven’t really been buying anything new lately. But I thought it would be a fun post to show y’all my makeup favorites of the year!
Some of the products obviously weren’t released this year, but I tried them for the first time this year. These are all my favorite things that I tried out and loved over the past 12 months.
Too Faced’s Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Collection (Cruelty-free!)
Too Faced is probably my favorite makeup brand especially when it comes to their eyeshadows. I bought this in May and I was really trying to convince myself that I didn’t need this, but then another part of me was saying that I deserved it. So, naturally I convinced myself and bought it; I absolutely have no regrets and love it so much and used it all summer. You can purchase this here.
Soap & Glory’s Thick & Fast Flash Extensions Effect Mascara (Cruelty-free!)
The last half of 2016 and the first half of 2017 I was obsessed with and really only ever reaching for Too Faced’s Better Than Sex mascara, which I still loved, but when I found this mascara I made the switch. I was getting kind of bored using the same mascara for so long, but everything else that I would try just didn’t do it for me, until this one. You can purchase this here.
Tarte’s Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint in Birthday Suit (Cruelty-free & Vegan!)
I’m pretty sure I’ve talked about this in a past post, but this has been my favorite lip product. I’m not one for a bold colored lip, I just don’t think that it looks right on me, so I prefer nudes and muted pinks. This is the perfect nude color that I have searched for a couple years and I couldn’t have been happier to have found it. The consistency is amazing and it literally feels like there’s nothing on your lips. And it doesn’t feel drying! You can purchase this here.
Urban Decay’s Naked Flushed (Cruelty-free)
In 2017, I have also stepped away from my Makeup Revolution Contour and Highlight Palette when this one caught my attention. Now, my favorite part about this is the highlighter because the glow is absolutely incredible, and the blush and contour are quite subtle but buildable. You can purchase this here.
Stila’s Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Intense Black (Cruelty-free)
This is by far my favorite eyeliner that I have ever used. The application is so easy and not intimating for it being a liquid eyeliner. For a girl who has always not been able to do wings that looked good, this product really has helped me in that area. It definitely has become a staple in my collection. You can purchase this here.
Tarte’s Deluxe Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush in Exposed (Cruelty-free & Vegan!)
After seeing a bunch of reviews on this collection, I knew I had to try it and I love it – the formula is amazing. If you can’t tell, I’m super into subtle pinks and nudes so this blush was the perfect one for me to try. You can purchase this here.
NARS’ Blush in Orgasm
I really did not use to be a blush person and I never wore it, and I’m still not much for an intense blush look. But I bought a couple this year, and I just wear it with a very light hand for a subtler look to give my face a bit more color, especially in the colder months. Plus, this is a classic color and you just have to have it in your collection. You can purchase this here.
That’s all the new products that I have tried and loved in 2017! Let me know what other products I need to try in the new year?
