Now I realise this post might be two days late but I had to do it, There was a lot of things I loved in 2016 but these made the cut and are products I use on a daily basis, I believe they deserve a whole post dedicated to their awesomeness. So without further a do….
My foundation pick of the year is the NARS Sheer Glow. You’re probably thinking the same as I did when I purchased it for the first time back in september “you’re bit late to the bandwagon” yes yes I know. It was just one of those products I had never got round to trying. I am so glad I did because It is by far my favourite foundation. It’s full coverage which Is my go to anyway, but it’s not cakey. Despite the name sheer glow, It’s a demi matte finish, so great for my oily skin. It’s just something I never want to be without from now on.
A new brand I stumbled upon in 2016 was Formula 10.0.06. I came across it in Boots and felt like trying something new, it was half price so I though ‘screw it why not’. Turned out to be a good decision as the Seriously Shine Free Moisturizer is my all time favourite. If you have oily skin, Just give it ago. It’s life changing. I liked it so much I went back and picked up the Deep Down Detox Mask which was another great product. It’s a mud mask so perfect for oily/spot prone skin. Smells like yogurt too.
This is a recent favourite. I have tried alot of perfumes before but none compare to this one from Zadig&Voltaire. To be honest, I had never heard of this brand until I saw a tester in boots a few months back. I tried it, it smelt really good and that was that, I thought nothing of it until the next day when I happened to get a waft of it when I moved my wrist. Bearing in mind I had washed my hands a few times and had a shower and I could still smell it! So recently there was an offer in boots on the box set at half price, It was the last one on the shelf and I could see another women staring at me when I picked it up like she was ready to fight me for it. I swiftly moved towards the till and now I am so glad I did get it. It’s my favourite perfume, EVER!
This palette has changed my eyeshadow life forever. I always used to be a neutral type of gal, Show me a colour and I would run a mile. But the ABH Modern renaissance palette changed everything. I now wear orange tones and pink tones on a daily basis. I won’t even look at a medium toned brown. No thank you. The pigmentation of the eyeshadows are INSANE. The overall quality of the palette is definitely worth the money. I’m getting a little panicky to be honest, I’ve hit pan on majority of my favourite shades and this palette is quite hard to get hold of. AGH!
Lastly, It’s The Kat Von D Shade And Light Contour palette. As you all probably know, Kat Von D was released in the UK in 2016. Which sent the beauty industry into meltdown. This was the first product I picked up from debenahams and I’ve used it every day since. It just has all of the right colours you need to contour. The Banana coloured powder is one of my favourites.
So that’s another year down in the beauty world, I wonder whats in store in 2017?!
