Can we believe its 2019?! Ahhhhhh. 2018 was good to me but I’m excited for 2019! I have to thank ALL of you for following along, reading my blog and even just looking at my Instagram or blog. It means the world to me!
I tried SO many new beauty products in 2018. I would say 2018, I really shifted my blog to
I’m always talking about what’s new so I thought this post would be helpful. Here in
Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara. My go-to mascara on night out. It gives you the darkest, most voluminous lashes and doesn’t smudge.
Glossier Lash Slick. – More natural but I really enjoy it and it never smudges. Maybelline Snapscara is a new love and very similar, cheaper and easier to get.
Hourglass Caution Mascara. Another fabulous one that won’t smudge. I’d trust this mascara to take me through anything.
Maybelline Lash Sensational – best drugstore option; doesn’t smudge and like Monsieur Big, packs on the volume.
It was the year of mascara! I also have to give a shout out to Revitalash for transforming my lashes. I’ll never get sick of people asking me if my lashes are real!
Marc Jacobs Omega Coconut Bronzer. – It’s fragile but I think it’s that good! Such a good color and goes on like butter.
Maybelline Master Chrome Highlighter x Nikki Tutorials. – SO pigmented and buttery. I hit pan!
Wet n Wild Nude Awakening Palette. – I never do drugstore eyeshadow because one, I don’t wear eyeshadow often and two, I want good performing eyeshadow. I don’t have time to blend for days! This shadow is such good quality and rivals my high-end palettes. I reach for this over my high-end palettes most of the time since I love the top transition shade. It’s the only one I use but it’s the perfect taupe, cool brown.
Hourglass Scattered Light Glitter Eyeshadow. – This is pure metallic goodness, it’s easy to use with minimal fallout. My friends come to me while I’m doing my makeup and ask for the sparkly stuff aka this!
Kaja Beauty Eyeshadow Trio. – GORGEOUS. These shades have a duo chrome flip and they’re so bright and sparkly. I apply these with my
Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter. A TOP favorite. I love this smeared everywhere as my highlighter. It’s beautiful and it gives you a movie star glow. Plus it blurs out imperfections, pores
Bobbi Brown x Sazan Nude lipstick. – Such a great collaboration and it’s the perfect nude that’s comfortable, easy and buildable.
Fenty Gloss. – I LOVE the Fenty Glosses. Fenty Fu$$y is my fave but I just got it so it’snot quite top of 2018 yet. The OG gloss bomb def held my top spot during the year and is still a favorite.
Too Faced Born This Way Concealer. – My Favorite full coverage concealer and it hydrates! I use this whenever I have a blemish so I can just spot conceal and go!
I really stepped up my skincare routine this year and this is the best my skin has ever looked. I’m hooked. I’m more sensitive so I’m starting out figure out what works! Here’s my favorites.
Drunk Elephant D-
Kiehls 12% Line Reducing Serum. – My favorite vitamin c and my second bottle! It helps with fine lines along with brightening, doesn’t smell and is more stable since it’s a cream. I find it to be more hydrating too since it’s a
Supergoop Mineral Matte Sunscreen. – BEST daily SPF. Takes care of shine but leaves a glow. It’s fantastic and leaves a good base for makeup.
Summer Fridays Jet Lag & Overtime. – I’ve had mixed feelings about Jet Lag but I’ve found my way and it’s the perfect overnight mask that will hydrate, nourish and plump up the skin. Overtime is my go-to physical exfoliator — it leaves my skin fresh and extremely soft without being too abrasive.
Dr. Dennis Gross Collagen Cream – I’m on my second one! This is luxurious, hydrating and leaves the skin plump. I love it night or day to lock in moisture. It has the best texture too!
Herbivore Phoenix Oil. This oil changed the game for me — it’s so hydrating and it made me dislike all my other oils! I love the smell and out of the 3 Herbivore oils, this one is the most hydrating. I need the full size! I will say, Youth To the People Superberry oil and Kora Organics Noni face glow oil are my other honorable mentions/faves that I loved towards the beginning of 2018!
Pixi Peel & Polish. – The gentler version of Drunk Elephant Baby Facial! It’s a chemical exfoliant and leaves your skin glowing.
Pantene Charcoal Shampoo/Conditioner. – I’ve talked about this many times. I wash my hair once a week now!
Batiste Dry Shampoo. – Still my #1 dry shampoo and my go-to.
Invisibobble Hairbands slim. – The only hairbands I use! Slim is my favorite. They don’t pull or dent my hair!
Ouai Rose Hair & Body Oil. – I love that I can use this on everything! Smells amazing. I use it in my hair or mixed with tan drops.
Olaplex 3. My GO-TO hair treatment since 2013. Ahh. If your hair is damaged, this is your only hope. I went through at least 4 this year.
I didn’t have a blush option because I’m so back and forth with blush. Same goes for powder and foundation or tinted moisturizer. Still on the lookout for a good chapstick, eye cream and cleansing balm! Spot any faves? What have you loved this year?!
