Best of Beauty Favourites | 2016

6:46 PM

Hey Dolls and Gents, 

These are the products I have been loving for the year. I am not really sure of all my products that I love, but there are a lot of products have I used and not posted on my blog. I will be reviews for the products that I have used in 2016 in 2017. It is crazy how fast the year has come and gone. Like I said in my last post, Happy New Year. I can't the first week of the New Year is going by so fast. 

Let's get into my favourites of 2016. I had a hard time remembering what I tried, what I loved in the 2016. I did not add some of eyebrow or blush favourites because they are the same from 2015. 


CoverFX Natural Finish Oil Free Foundation 

CoverFX Natural Finish Oil Free Foundation in N110
The amount of times, I have gotten samples from Sephora for this foundation in 2016, it really hard to count and every time I am ready to purchase the full size, I chicken out and get another sample. I really do love this foundation, it is has medium coverage and provides you with a natural finish. I do have combo-oily skin and I use a mattifying primer underneath and I have to set my face, but I love how the foundation wears on my face. It last about 6-7 hours before my oils start to come through. I highly recommend this foundation. I will definitely be purchasing the full size this year. 

CoverFX Custom Cover Drops 

CoverFX Custom Cover Drops in N110
I was interested in this foundation from the day, I saw all the hype around. But, I was not full convinced of what people were saying about this, so I had to try it for myself and let me tell you, people were right. These drops are crazy good, it can wear them on it own or mix with a foundation or moisturizer. I tried all three and I love it. The finish of this is matte. It does not alter the finish of any foundation your mix in with. I have gotten so many samples of this, I going to have to buy the full size. 

Urban Decay All Nighter Weightless Foundation 

Urban Decay All Nighter Weightless Foundation in 12 
This is one and only foundation I bought in 2016. When this foundation was released, everyone and their mama was talking about it and I had to go try it out for myself. I love the coverage, the wear and the colour match. I am glad that I decided to get this foundation on a whim and not chicken out. I will be doing a review on this foundation. 


NYX HD Concealer 

NYX HD Concealer in 8.2 and 8.4
I discovered a new concealer in 2016 and it was the NYX HD Concealer and when I went to the NYX, I decide to purchase it. I have heard great things about this concealer and it has duped for the NARS Radiant Concealer and the Urban Decay Naked Skin. I haven't tried any of those, but this concealer is amazing and I love the colour selection as well. Though, it think the colour selection is a bit off, nonetheless it is a great concealer. A review will be coming.


Ruby Kisses Eyebrow Pencil in Black Brown 

Ruby Kisses Eyebrow Pencil in Black Brown
I got this eyebrow pencil during the summer and I have been loving it since. I use this pencil to shape my brows before I fill it in with my dipbrow pomade. On days, when I want a natural look, I use this pencil.


Maybelline Lash Sensational (Waterproof)

Maybelline Lash Sensational Full Fan Effect Waterproof Very Black
Finally, I got a new mascara in 2016. I was running low on mascara, so when I went to the drugstore this mascara was on sale and I wanted to try it out anyways because it is a dupe for the Benefit Roller Lash. I love this mascara, it makes my short lashes look really long and it fans them out beautifully. I am not a fan of waterproof mascara, but I will be getting this again for sure. 

CoverGirl Volume Lash Blast 

CoverGirl LashBlast Volume in Black
I got a deluxe sample of this mascara from Forever 21 and let me tell you that I have been using this mascara since. I layer this mascara on top of my Maybelline mascara, so it adds volume to my lashes and makes it easier to remove my mascara. This mascara adds a lot of volume to my lashes. 


Ruby Kisses All Over Glow Bronzing Powder in Bronze Glow 

Ruby Kisses All Over Bronzing Glow in Bronze Glow
This was the only highlight I wore for the remainder of 2016. I purchase this highlight because of Alissa Ashley, she raved this it was a natural highlight, but you are still able to get a crazy outer space highlight with this.  I have also been looking for this highlight because I heard it was a dupe for MAC Gold Deposit. I love this highlight so much, I have not been able to put it down since I have gotten it. It is perfect for deep to dark skin tones. 


Laura Mericer Translucent Powder 

Laura Mericer Translucent Powder - Travel Size 
I purchase the travel size of Laura Mericer powder in a mini Sephora Haul. I literally used it up and I have not purchase another since, because I am still looking for a pure translucent powder on my skin. I love this powder when I did have it, I used it set under my under and my entire face. It has a beige tint to it and there is no flashback. Definitely recommend.

Eyeshadow Palette 

NYX Beauty School Dropout in Graduate

NYX Beauty School Dropout in Graduate
Ever since, attending the NYX Event, I have not been able to put down this palette. It has been my first time trying out NYX shadows and I love this palette to create any eyelook. The palettes has hits and mess, but I find more hits than messes, such as some of the matte and shimmer eyeshadow and one of the blushes. I did a full review on this palette last year. 

Lips and Lip Liners

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Potion and Trust Issues 

ABH Liquid Lipstick in Potion 

ABH Liquid Lipstick in Trust Issues 
These two are my first high end liquid lipstick. I have been wearing both Potion and Trust Issues at the ending of 2016. I literally love both of these colours. I will do a full review of these two colours.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania and Copenhagen 

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania 
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen 
Adding these two soft matte lip creams to my collection at the ending of 2016 was a great choice. I have been looking to purchase these two lip colours since I heard everyone raved about these two colours and the formula. Each of the these colour is absolutely gorgeous and I have to get more of these. 

NYX Lip Pencil in Espresso 

NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Espresso 
These are NYX cult favourite lip liners. 2016 was my first time trying out these lip liner and I can understand the hype around them. They glide nicely on the lips plus there are many MAC lipliner dupes here. I used this lip liner everyday under any lipstick. 

NYX Suede Matte Lip Pencil in Clubhopper and Oh Put it On

NYX Suede Matte Lip Liner in Club Hopper and Oh Put it On
I got these lip liners  at the end of year and they are really nice on the lips.They are matte lip liners that NYX came out with and they are be used with the suede lip lipstick. I love this they are super matte and creamy, you can even wear them on their own. I use these lip liner for any lipstick or liquid lipstick. 

NYX Lingerie Lipstick in Beauty Mark 

NYX Lingerie Lipstick in Beauty Mark 
This is my first ever liquid lipstick in 2016. I am glad it was a drugstore one. These lingerie lipstick are not drying on the lips. I was afraid that beauty mark was going to be too light for my skin tone, but it end up being the perfect nude lipstick on me. I mixed this with MAC Film Noir a few times, I lied, like a lot, I can't even count. Definitely going to add more to my collection and get backups.

MAC Film Noir 

MAC Lipstick in Film Noir 
This lipstick was given to me in 2015 as a gift from my friend and I literally worn this colour for months straight until I got a new lip colour. I love the fact that is a satin intense brown and it looked gorgeous to being with. I definitely worn this colour out in 2016. 

Clarins Prodige Lip Gloss in 04  Candy 

Clarins Gloss Prodige Lip Colour in 04 Candy
This is my go to lip gloss in 2016, it was even mention in my Ride or Die Tag. I love the colour and no matter by itself or on top of a lipstick. I will always love this lipgloss, thanks to my mother. 

Setting Sprays 

Urban Decay Deslick Setting Spray 

Urban Decay Deslick Setting Spray
I got this setting spray for my 21st birthday from my friends, since I have been talking about like forever. It is my first high end setting spray and I literally used it everyday until the last it ran out. It help set my makeup, but also control my oil on my face. 

NYX Matte Setting Spray 

NYX Matte Finishing Spray
My first drugstore setting spray. The reason why I got this spray is my cousin girlfriend used it on my graduation in June and I love how my makeup look throughout the day. It love that is affordable and help set the makeup in place, it does not control oils but it okay. I have gotten all my family and friends on this.


Jojoba Oil 

Jojoba Oil from Eden Semilia 
OMG, this is best find in 2016. I have never heard of this oil and company until they reached out to me to review their products. I knew that oils were good for the face, but I did not know the benefits of jojoba oil. I still use this oil every night when I go to bed and when I wear no makeup or before I apply makeup. 

Clarisonic Mia 2 

Clarisonic Mia 2 -Deep Pore Set 
Thank god, for the Clarisonic. Again, i got this collection to review for you guys and I have used it before and I love the results that the clarisonic gave my skin. I can not say enough good things about this. I literally can not leave without or until I find something else I want to try.

I hope the you enjoyed my best of beauty of 2016. I can't believe that we are in a new year and I will doing some new things on my blog this and be posting more frequently.
