Beauty Favourites of 2017.

Beauty Favourites of 2017.
My makeup collection grew an enormous amount in 2017, probably the most it's grown ever to be honest, but I've been lucky enough to not only be able to buy such amazing products but I've also been gifted or sent them to try out too.

Beauty Favourites of 2017.

If you came on here and didn't have a clue what my favourite primer would be, then where have you been for the whole of 2017? I can easily say this is my absolute favourite and I can easily say this is the best primer in the world. Yes that's right. The world. It evens out your skin, makes your foundation stick to your face and it combats shine. It's the best £3 spent, ever. No lie, I have about five in my collection as I love it that much. 

Beauty Favourites of 2017.

Up until 2017, I had never tried a CC Cream before. Now I am a CC Cream convert. I am obsessed. It's super full coverage which you would not expect from a CC Cream, but it still lets your skin breathe. I get so many compliments when this is on my skin and I won't lie, it does make my skin look flawless. I am very close to running out and I will be repurchasing this soon. If you've not yet tried it, buy it. I fell in love and I have no regrets. 

Beauty Favourites of 2017.

I got this when I went shopping with Emma and she actually made me buy it. Honestly, she wouldn't let me leave Wilko's unless this was in my basket. I am so glad she did make me buy it though. It's amazing. It's so lightweight but so full coverage at the same time. It's amazing at highlighting my under eyes and does not crease. I do wish it was just a tad paler though, but it still does the trick. 

The best concealer ever. Do I need to say any more? Perfect for blemishes, highlighting, the under eyes. Everything. It's just perfect. Buy it. 

Beauty Favourites of 2017.

I've used this powder since I was about 12 years old. No other powder compares and probably never will. I've tried so many other powders but nothing is as good as this. It sets everything in place, doesn't make things cakey or crease and it makes makeup last. I can use this in a morning and there's still no shine/oil come night time. It's fabulous. 

Beauty Favourites of 2017.

Hands down the BEST bronzer I have ever used. Thank God for Emma getting me this when she went to NYC. I am obsessed with it. I honestly think I use this every single day... I mean you can see by the picture above how loved it is. It's the perfect shade for me and adds such a gorgeous colour to my face. It smells amazing too. If you can try it. If not, send one of your friends to America so they can bring you some back!

Beauty Favourites of 2017.

I have an obsession with highlighters. Honestly, I am so obsessed. I love my highlight to pop. Day to day, I am forever reaching for my MAC Soft & Gentle. It's perfect for everyday wear. It's quite subtle but still has an intense glow which I love. 

I fell in love with this blusher at the start of the year. I was at work, routing through Fahrah's make up bag and spotted it. Swatched it, loved it and bought it. It's honestly beautiful. I believe it was the shade Fahrah wore on her wedding day. I am obsessed. I've never loved a blusher more. 

Beauty Favourites of 2017.

ABH Brow Definer | £24
2017 has been the year of the brows. Honestly, since giving up waxing and plucking and opting for threading instead, my brows have changed dramatically. They have a better shape than they have ever had and actually look like eyebrows now. My eye brows are quite thick, so they don't need a lot of filling in but when I do I always reach for this. I use the shade 'medium brown' and it matches perfectly.

Beauty Favourites of 2017.

Benefit Gimme Brow | £20
The only brow product I cannot live without. I use it every single day. It tames my brows and keep them in place. It's also brown in colour so it adds a little something to my eyebrows too. I swear by it.

Beauty Favourites of 2017.

Urban Decay Naked | £39.50
My absolute favourite makeup item of 2017. I got this for Christmas last year and fell in love instantly fell in love. I use it pretty much every day and as you can see I absolutely love 'Naked' and 'Sidecar'. I'm sure I will continue to love this very much throughout 2018.

Beauty Favourites of 2017.

Another palette by Urban Decay I fell in love with is this one. I mean look at it, it's beautiful. It's the perfect palette for Autumn and I wore it non stop throughout those months. I was lucky enough to get it in the pre sale and I cannot wait to use it more and more.

Beauty Favourites of 2017.

L'Oreal Paradise Mascara | £11.99
A bit of a shock I know, for the last few years I have been raving about the Too Faced 'Better than sex' mascara but something new was released in 2017 that caught my eye. It is quite similar to the Too Faced mascara which is probably why I love is so much, however it's about half the price. I have quite long lashes anyway, but this does amazing things to them. I love them.

Beauty Favourites of 2017.

I'm never usually one for lip liners, but in 2017 I started to use them a lot more. I got this one for Christmas year and now it is my most used lip liner, I am obsessed. It matches perfectly with the lipstick below. 

Beauty Favourites of 2017.

As you can see by the image, I love this lipstick. I don't think I have ever used a lipstick so much before. I use it all the time. It was actually Anna Saccone Joly who got me onto this lipstick! It's a beautiful nude but it is very pale so it's not for everyone. I just love it. 

Primark Lipgloss in 'Just Peachy' | £2.50
I got this when I went shopping with Emma and I have been obsessed every since. I've really been into glossy lips this year and this is beautiful either on it's own or with 'Honey love'. It's not too sticky but creates a lovely finish on the lips. 

Beauty Favourites of 2017.

In 2017 I bought my first ever Tom Ford lipstick. It was a hard choice to make and I only got the smaller one. I wanted a pink shade, something I could wear easily and I 100% made the right choice. It's beautiful. I am wanting to try more from Tom Ford so let me know below what I should pick up next. 

Beauty Favourites of 2017.

This is is such a gorgeous lipgloss. Again, it's not too sticky and can be worn alone or on top of a lipliner/lipstick. I have a few lip creams by L'Oreal now but this one is by far my favourite. It looks gorgeous on the lips and even though it's a gloss, it lasts a long time. 

Beauty Favourites of 2017.

Well, well, well. Who'd have thought it. Me wearing a red lip and actually loving it. I think it was around July time I actually wore a red lip for the first time and became obsessed. Again, it was Fahrah who recommended it to me and can I just say Fahrah knows her stuff. It's a beautiful red shade, does not at all feel drying and I get SO many compliments whenever I wear it. 

Primark Lip Liner | £1.50
Can I just say, Primark lip liners are absolutely amazing. For the price, you cannot beat them. I have such a collection now. It matches my L'Oreal lip paint amazingly. I'm obsessed.

I've been lucky enough to fall in love with so many new brands in 2017 and I am hoping to try even more brands in 2018. One brand in particular is 'Chanel'. I would love to own something from Chanel. What's something you'd like to try in 2018? Let me know in the comments below.

  1. I love yearly favourites as you know the products are really tried and tested! I really want to get my hands on the butter bronzer, naked heat palette and I haven't found my holy grail primer yet so kiss may become my latest love. I used to own a foundation from chanel and truth be told, I didn't rate it. Their products are so highly fragranced that if you have even slightly sensitive skin I wouldn't recommend going near them. It made me come out in rashes and spots which I was so disappointed about after spending that much money. Maybe try out a non base product like eyeshadow first to make sure you don't react badly?

    Happy new year by the way!

  3. I love Gimme Brow. Eyebrows has also been a thing for me this year!

    I really need to get some of that L'Oreal Lip Cream now. I am a sucker for bright red lip products. Is it long lasting?
