You know when you find products that you just fall for, and they never make it to your fancy storage because you need them permanently in your everyday makeup bag? Yep, that's what happened to these guys throughout 2016, because I just flippin' love them.
When will I learn that no matter how many other foundations I try, none of them will compare to Double Wear. You've likely heard it all by now, but it gives a full coverage, flawless finish and is the most long lasting foundation I've ever tried.
- Sara Happ | Peony Lip Scrub
I won't lie, I was totally surprised by this one as I'd initially just bought it 'cos I thought the packaging was too cute (pretty packaging will be my downfall). But it's the nicest lip scrub to ever grace my lips. It has more of a paste consistency rather than a crumbly one, which I find much easier to use. It buffs and polishes my lips but leaves behind a balm for that added moisture! Mine has sadly ran out now but I'll definitely be buying another (if I can find it, Beauty Bay has stopped shipping them to the UK...)
- MAC | Snob Lipstick
I strayed slightly from my usual nude pink lipsticks and fell for MAC Snob, a pretty blush pink with a satin finish. I think we can all tell how much I loved this little one judging by what's left of it (and by the amount I've blabbed on about it..)
- Too Faced | Hangover Primer
This one is the nicest base for when your skin is feeling a bit lacklustre. It's smooth and cooling to apply, my foundation sits beautifully over the top and it gives me lovely radiant, hydrated skin.
- Percy & Reed | Wonder Balm
The hair product that really is a wonder balm. I pop it into towel dried hair and it preps it for any styling that commences. My curls stay fuller, bouncier and last longer when I use this! I also use it on the days after my hair wash, after I've styled it with my curling wand and it just enhances and defines my curls, and makes them look softer and shiner. I wouldn't be without this now.
- YSL | Rose Romantique Nail Polish
This pretty polish was a sweet little Christmas gift from my sister last year, and I've worn it to death! It's a lovely, natural manicure pink shade and looks so classic and elegant. Plus that packaging is just dreamy.
This Charlotte Tilbury powder honestly works miracles, it has a really buttery soft, finely milled texture and just makes your skin look flawless. I find it sets my makeup really well and keeps my shine at bay like no other. The best part though? How natural, non-cakey and undetectable it looks on the skin. You need this.
- Too Faced | Chocolate Bon Bons
The eyeshadow palette I always come back to as the quality is amazing and it has such beautiful colours. My top three shades are Divinity; a soft creamy matte white, Almond Truffle; a matte mauvey beige with a pink undertone, and Satin Sheets; a gorgeous golden champagne pink. (Full review here)
The only brow gel I'll ever use. My brows never look out of place when I use it, they just don't budge, and the little comb is the best for getting your brows super neat and perfected. I used to love the clear brow gel by ABH, and the actual product is quite similar but the comb on the Benefit wand wins by a mile.
