Best of Beauty 2016

I actually did a review on this with swatches and comparisons!

Wet n Wild blush in Rose Champagne 

I hardly ever wear blush. Maybe once a month. But I love this one because it is so natural looking, easy to apply, and cheap.

Covergirl Clean Matte BB Cream

Honestly, I don’t know what possessed me to buy this product. I love dewy, glowy foundations. But this matte bb cream really blew me away. It has the perfect coverage and looks beautiful on the face! Covergirl is a brand that I never buy from because their products are always too pink for me (I have yellow undertones) but this matched perfectly. I was seriously blown away by this!

Too Faced Sweet Tea Bronzer

I might have only bought this because of the name😜 But this is a great bronzer that also took me by surprise. I don’t normally like baked bronzers/blushes but this is really great quality! It works for when I want to do a light “contour” also. 

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer

My life will never be the same after using this. I ran out of my first one and didn’t want to spend the money buying another one. So I bought 3 more drugstore concealers trying to find something that would compare… But I ended up going back to my Nars concealer. I don’t know what they put in this but I love it! Full coverage, light weight, natural looking, beautiful finish. 

NYX Dark Circle Concealer Corrector

I did a review on this also with alot better pictures and a before and after!

Colourpop Aquarius Lippie Stix and Lip Liner

Pictures don’t do this color justice. It is the PERFECT lip color for me. If I could only use one lip product for life it would be this. It is beautiful!!!!

Maybelline Brow Precise Pencil

I have tried the Hourglass brow pencil and the Sephora brow pencil but this beats them both! It just works. Plus it is only like 7$ at the drugstore which makes it even better. 

Colourpop Highlighter in Spoon

This. Highlighter. It’s beautiful!!!! I love it waayyy better than Lunch Money. This is a really sparkly champagne colored highlighter. 

Wet n Wild Setting Spray

So I used to use the Urban Decay All Nighter but it really just sucked the moisture out of my skin. I prefer this Wet n Wild one over the Ud because it keeps my makeup from being too oily but at the same time gives my face a little bit extra moisture!

So that’s it! I hope maybe you found some products you might want to try! I’m already excited to try some new things in 2017 so hopefully next year I will have different yearly favorites. Have a great day and thanks for reading!!

NYX Color Corrector Concealer Review

image

Hello! I picked this concealer up at Ulta last month and have been (surprisingly) loving it! I never really bought into the whole color correcting trend but this concealer may have changed my mind:)

I have always had dark under eyes. Mostly it is because of my bone structure. The light hits my face and cast a shadow under my eyes. But also because my skin is very thin and delicate around my eyes.

This concealer has coconut oil in it which makes it blend out easily. (I may or may not have bought this because it said coconut on the packaging…..) I expected a dry, hard to blend concealer but I was wrong! It’s very moisturizing, yet also long lasting:) Even though I have oily skin, this stays throughout an 8-hour workshift with little creasing. However, if you have a really hard time with concealer creasing, I suggest when using this that you set it with a face powder.

I got this lightest shade out of the three, and it goes very well with my skin tone:)

This was only 5.99$ at Ulta which is, awesome! Considering a lot of drugstore brand concealers are twice that price.

Now for comparisons….
Would I replace my holy grail, Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer with this? Absolutely not. That concealer is my soul-mate and irreplaceable.  But….. this is definitely in my top 3 concealers. It’s perfect for every day,  light coverage.  But whenever I’m super tired, or have a long day ahead of me, or want something a little more full coverage,  I use my Nars concealer. Sometimes I’ll use them together by blending the Nars concealer over the NYX one…. It’s a match made in heaven:)
