The 2018 Favourites
Happy new year! I know…this is really late, as usual, however I would like to share some of my favourite products of 2018. A few of these products have been available for a few years while others were newbies I discovered throughout the year and they didn’t leave my main makeup bag once (everyone has one of these, right? The ones you take everywhere with you).
So.. these were the products I had a strong relationship with last year and I don’t see the break ups happening anytime soon. I tried to include skincare and makeup to vary it and I think you’ll all agree with me that these products are amazing.
The Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
This lovely mascara made my eyes look much bigger and my lashes looked thicker too. The best part and the reason I chose this mascara to take on holidays with me is the fact it doesn’t smudge. I love the cute packaging and because this one I have is travel sized, its perfect for my handbag.
Iconic London Prep Set Glow
I used this product throughout summer everywhere I went. It’s perfect for adding to moisturiser for a shimmery effect on the body and to help my tan look amazing when the sun hit it. It smells sooo good and summery too.
St Tropez Self Tan Purity
This product is the best product ever for summer. Its a water based gradual tan, it doesn’t smell like tan at all and gives a lovely natural colour. Its also non sticky so you can literally apply and go. Just what you need for a last minute top up.
Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette
The best shades in a palette ever! The shades were perfect for summer for a sunset vibes look and I took this one on holiday with me, the pigment of the colours are really good. Theres a mirror in the palette which is always a bonus, a brush (so perfect for travel) and it has shimmers and mattes so you can create the best evening looks.
Soap & Glory Lipstick
I tried the s&g lipstick after seeing them in Boots and loved the look of them. The lipsticks can come in many types including satin or matte. I love the matte shade called Super Nude It’s the perfect nude shade and looks stunning. The pigment is amazing on these lipsticks too and actually lasts! My lips didn’t dry out either.
Rose Face Mask
I received the Fresh face mask from the Glamour Beaty Festival last year and since I tried it I can honestly say I love it. The mask smells amazing (a gorgeous rose smell) and makes my skin have a beautiful natural glow. It has real rose petels in the mask too which feel so lovely as you apply on to the skin.
Huda Beauty Nude Palette
This palette has become my favourite palette ever, the tones are stunning! The pigment is so good and the glitters actually go on so nicely with your finger. The beautiful pink shades suit any skin tones too. I love how big the mirror in the palette is as well as you can travel with it. I only recently got this palette in November but since then I’ve used it pretty much everyday.
Stila Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eye & Cheek Palette
I only recently got this product from a friend for my Birthday! Thank you Zee ☺️ The palette is lovely, it has the most perfect blush tones and eyeshadows to match. Its a great size to add to a handbag too. I mostly use this palette for the blusher as it’s honestly such a gorgeous shade.
Benefit Brow Pomade
When it comes to brow products Benefit are literally the best. Their brow pomade was the perfect product for me to take everywhere. The pomade comes with a small angle brush so I took this on my holidays and its perfect for my handbag too, not to mention the stunning silver packaging.
Pixi Rose Tonic
This was another product I received free from the Glamour Beauty Festival and again one non stopped used it. The tonic helps to tone and minimise redness which calms my skin. I also use the Glow Tonic daily too but I have run out 😩 so couldn’t take a photo.
OGX Coconut Miracle Oil
One of my favourite hair brands has to be OGX, not only do their products smell insane, but since I’ve been using the products my hair has actually grown. This coconut oil helps dry, damaged hair to become beautifully soft again. OGX also have every shampoo and conditioner they have in travel sized so you can take them anywhere and not have to worry about the weight of luggage.
