2018 has been one of my favourite years in terms of experimenting with new makeup and skincare, so I’ll round up some of the ones I loved the most last year. I know this post is a little late, but better late than never, right? 😉
The BEST foundation I’ve ever used. I’ve even stopped using BB creams because this stuff is even better, be it in terms of coverage or staying power. I also love that it doesn’t clog up my skin, so it’s great to use even if you have oily skin with easily-clogged pores.
It’s a tad expensive, but a good foundation like this is honestly worth the investment, even more so than a luxury lipstick. This is coming from a lipstick lover, so you know how much I treasure this foundation. You also don’t need a lot of product because of the high coverage, so a little can go a long way.
Best concealer I’ve ever used – and the cheapest one ever! This stuff is creamy, promises super good coverage, and doesn’t oxidize. I’ve been using this (rather small) tube for months and still haven’t finished it – super worth it!
I didn’t really dare to take the leap when it came to using snail mucin, but when I finally did with this product, I was absolutely blown away. I find this perfect for soothing and clearing up skin irritations, acne, and sunburns while hydrating skin. Now, where have you been my whole life??
Probably my favourite toner this year for being really effective (at least for the most part). This is very good for clearing up acne and preventing breakouts from happening, so acne-prone people should definitely try this.
No one should be left feeling like a noob at using liquid eyeliner, not when CLIO has provided one of the best tools available. I find that the brush is much easier to control and use than the pen, so you can easily brush (haha) across your eyelids and create a clean line. Plus points for being waterproof.
I couldn’t end this favourites list without a lip product, and after much deliberation I finally decided that Colourpop’s Ultra Blotted Lip was truly the gem of the year. Comfort, great staying power, and beautiful colours – this highly affordable product truly provides them all.
