Products I Discovered and Loved in 2016

Thursday, 5 January 2017

As a beauty lover, I'm always on the lookout for new products to try, so I thought I'd share my favourite products that I've discovered and loved during 2016. However, I often find these sorts of posts can be very long winded, so I've kept it to my top 8 to try and keep the post short and sweet.

If you've followed my blog this year, you'll know how much I've raved about this product, it's featured in so many posts so I won't bang on about it too much now. In short, it's the best lip balm I've ever used. It's so nourishing and hydrating and has definitely nursed my lips through the colder weather. 

Having been a huge fan of the Original Potion Primer from Urban Decay, I was intrigued to try Eden as I'd heard such great things about it. I've been using this for the most part of the year and love it, I find it more creamy compared to the Original potion and it holds my eyeshadow in place all day. 

Having only used the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer for the past few years, I was intrigued to try a different Concealer and was recommended this one from Urban Decay. As it's a little pricier, I only use it for night outs or during the weekend, but I love it. The coverage is really good and it also smells really lovely! 
I've heard so many raving reviews of this foundation and I finally gave in and purchased myself a bottle earlier in the year. You can read my full review here, but it's definitely become a staple in my make up bag now. It's such a long lasting foundation, with amazing coverage and I've been recommending it to all my friends - I love it! 

If you've seen me wearing a lipstick this year, it's most probably been this one, I've been wearing it so much. It's such a gorgeous pale pink colour that's perfect for everyday. I've bought it for a couple of my friends as well because I've been loving it so much that I want others to be able to try it too! 

I was recommended this by an assistant in MAC as I was looking for this exact shade for an eye look I was wanting to do for a bridesmaid make up. It's the prettiest eye colour I've ever seen and I've worn it so much over the year, it blends so well and is so pigmented.

This is definitely a late addition to my favourites this year, but I couldn't not include it. I haven't long reviewed it, so I won't go into too much detail (read the full review here), but it's such a beautiful highlight that I've been wearing pretty much everyday since receiving it in November. 
This product has probably had the biggest impact on my life, it's the best product I've tried all year. It's a top coat that leaves your nails dry to the touch within minutes. Being quite an impatient person, I always ended up smudging my nail polish as I never quite left enough time for my nails to dry. However, I never have this problem anymore, I really can't recommend this product enough - you have to give it a try!

So that's the products that I've discovered and loved during 2016. What products have you been loving in 2016?
