2016 Beauty Favorites



2016 is coming to its end and with that being said it's time I share with you guys what my beauty favorites for this year are!

Lets Talk.... 

  1. BECCA Under Eye Brightening Corrector: Let me tell you.... HONEY, if you're looking to hide those dark circles, let me get you hip! You need this corrector in your collection! It's a necessity to my makeup routine because it truly helps minimize the appearance of my dark circles. A awesome thing about this product is that a little goes a long way; A pea size amount is all I need with this product and the pea size is used for both eyes! Once I put on the brightener I apply my concealer on top.... BOW! Team work, makes the dream work, bye bye dark circles!
  2. Urban Decay Naked3 Eyeshadow Palette: I'm so in love with this palette!! I literally have not touched any of my other eye palettes since purchasing this one. The rose gold hues compliment my skin tone so well, it feels as if Urban Decay designed this palette with me in mind (teehee). I can create numerous looks with this palette, from everyday makeup to a night on the town. It has the perfect combination of mattes and shimmers. If you are looking for a neutral toned palette, give this one try, it might become your new favorite to!
  3. Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H Long Wear Foundation: So I'm in ULTA (as usual), not really looking for anything particular, just looking for something to spend my money on! lol. As I'm browsing  my eyes are roaming to all different kinds of foundations; I've been wanting to try a new foundation (my excuse to myself to purchase something lol). My Holy grail foundation is Bare Minerals, although I love Bare Minerals, I'm always looking to try new products. I approached a ULTA employee and asked him to give me his recommendation, he brings me to Lancomes product display. Now my first thought is "All these makeup brands.... all these dang different brands.... and he brings me to Lancome ... a MATURE woman makeup line".  He strongly recommended their products and went on and on about how Lancome has revamped their line to be more appealing to youthful beauties. Excuse the heck out of me! He was right! I LOVE THIS FOUNDATION! I truly get all day wear with this product and it blends so perfectly with my skin giving it a natural finish . The foundation is very build able depending on the amount of coverage you are looking for. Now I will say... Its on the pricey side, retailing at about $47.00 but you get your moneys worth because a little goes a long way. I typically bounce back between this one and my Bare Minerals foundation depending on the occasion.
  4. NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminators | Gleam & Sun Goddess: Why the heck haven't I picked this product up sooner! These illuminators are everything and more. They work awesome under my powder bronzer and highlighter. I use a mini beauty sponge to apply Gleam and put my highlighter right over it.  I use the exact same method when applying Sun Goddess. It definitely helps my highlighter pop and my contour look more defined. 
  5. NYX Ombre Blush | Strictly Chic: This was the first ombre blush I've came across, I was intrigued to give it a try. A light swirl with my brush blending both shades together, leaves me with a natural flushed look. I love peachy tone blushes, they are very flattering on my complexion. I'm happy to say this one wasn't a disappointment and I say that because I've been disappointed with NYX blushes I've tried in the past. I didn't have high expectations for this one, but I'm glad I gave it a try because I was pleasantly surprised.
  6. NYX Strobe of Genius Illuminating Palette: When I initially seen NYX was releasing this palette, I had to purchase it for a few reasons. #1- I FREAKING LOVE NYX products. Their great quality, at a great price. #2- I am a highlighter fanatic! #3-You get 7 different shades to play with. The shades are very pigmented as well. This palette has my cheekbones popppin! The bridge of my nose..... Popppin! Haha... GO GET ONE !!



I'm loving all the products I've picked up this year. Looking forward to my new finds going into 2017. What are your 2016 beauty favorites?



Will talk again soon!
XOXO
