Best Beauty Purchases of 2017

I wanted to share with y’all my favorite beauty purchases of 2017! These are all products I have already purchased a second time or will repurchase once I run out.

1. Better than Sex Mascara

If I had to pick one mascara to use, this would be it. Coming from someone that doesn’t have long lashes – this brush not only adds length but adds volume to my eyelashes. The brush is what sets this mascara apart from the others and it really does a great job of coating all of your eyelashes.

2. NYX Micro Brow Pencil

If you’re looking for an inexpensive brow pencil that’s a dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills brow pencil, then head to your local drug store to buy this product immediately.  It’s a lot cheaper than ABH and works just about the same. I went straight from the ABH brow pencil to this one because I wanted something that didn’t cost as much, and man was I happy I tried this product! It’s also a great product for beginners because it’s so easy to apply and blend.

3. Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita

Chances are if you’re looking at a picture of me on my Instagram – I’m wearing it. Kat Von D’s formula is amazing and it truly lasts a long time. It dries into a perfect matte and it doesn’t budge, even after eating or drinking. The shade Lolita is my go-to lip color and it’s a great color that looks good on most skin tones. It is a must buy!

4. Bumble and Bumble Pret-a-Powder

This is my favorite dry shampoo product that I’ve used to date. I’ve used a couple of aerosol dry shampoos and while those are easier and faster to use, it made my hair feel a lot dirtier/grimier. Other than being a dry shampoo product it also adds lots of volume to your hair. So if you have oily roots like me, this product will be your new best friend.

5. NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk

I use this product to brighten my eyes by lining my waterline. It’s also perfect for applying all over your eyelid as a base to get light eye shadows to pop or just as an eye shadow primer. It’s so versatile and lasts a long time. My only complaint is that it doesn’t come with a sharpener, but you can google ways to sharpen the product.

6. Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer

This is the best bronzer that I have ever used. I bought this bronzer over two years ago and I still haven’t run out! It’s so soft and applies like a dream. I also use this to contour my cheekbones and temple. It’s super build-able so you can go as dark or as light as you want and it looks very natural without looking dirty, especially on fair skin tones. Definitely a must try!

7. L’Oreal Paris Infallible Eye Shadow in Iced Latte

I literally use this product I use this as my base eye shadow and I apply it all over my lid to brighten up my eye.  It’s a quick and easy way to amp up your eye makeup and make your eyes seem brighter. These eyeshadows are buttery, very pigmented, and last all day.  Repurchasing until the end of time…or until they stop making it (which is hopefully never).
