Hey guys! I hope everyone had a great holiday! I didn’t have a post go up on Tuesday because I was travelling, so I will have a bonus post go up on Sunday come back for that. Today I will be going back to my 2018 Beauty Favourites and sharing my thoughts on those products. Do I still love them and recommend them?
My palette recommendation was the Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow palette. I actually just brought that palette with me to Punta Cana because I love the cream contour. I don’t use the highlights or bronzers very often though. I have tons of highlights that I use more often than these, but maybe that’s something I should work on using more.
My foundation pick was the Physicians Formula The Healthy Foundation and I still love this foundation. I use it all the time still and I 100% still recommend this foundation.
My two concealer favourites were the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer and Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer. I still love the Nars concealer. It’s basically the only concealer I used all of 2019. I didn’t use the Estee Lauder concealer that much. I find the shade I have to be a bit too yellow, so I don’t use it very often.
My powder recommendation was the Cover FX Perfect Setting Powder. I still really like this powder. I don’t use it as often because I am trying to use up other powders in my collection, but this powder is still really great if you have oily skin.
My two mascara favourites were the IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara and the Butter London Double Decker Mascara. I finally threw away my Butter London mascara because it was getting really old and flaky. But I really do like the Butter London mascara. It makes my lashes look naturally wispy. This mascara is just not easy to purchase in Canada. I did repurchase the IT Cosmetics mascara and I do find it’s great at giving lashes volume. But I do have different mascaras that are my 2019 faves, so stay tuned. 👀
I had four favourite lip products. The first was the Bite Beauty Agave Lip Balm. It’s good, but I prefer other lip balms over it. I will finish my current one (currently living in my car lol), but I don’t think I will repurchase it. Next was the Girlactik Long Lasting Matte Lip Paint. Man, I still love this lipstick. I wear it all the time, it’s just a great shade and is comfortable on the lips. Next was the Creme Lux Lipstick by Colourpop in the shade What’s Your Sign. I do like this lipstick, but I don’t wear it very often. I definitely should wear it more! Finally was the Sephora Collection Outrageous Effect Volume Lip Gloss. I’m not as into this gloss anymore. I find the lip plumping effect to be a little annoying. Like I do like the look of the gloss, but I could do without the lip plumper.
The final favourite was the PUR PRO Eyelashes. I still like these lashes. I am super careful with my lashes, always taking the glue off so these lashes are still kicking around. Because I like these lashes so much I don’t wear them very often, but I probably have a few more wears before they are done.
And those were my 2018 favourites. It’s funny how some products I still use all the time, and others I have barely used in 2019. On Tuesday I will be sharing my 2019 favourites, so make sure it check that out.
