2016 Beauty Favorites

I'm excited to bring you my annual favorites for the seventh year in a row! It was neat to look back on my favorites from 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015. In years past, I did a long list of favorites featuring one product from every category. This year, I want to change it up a bit and feature a handful of products I truly loved and used most of the year.

Top 10 Most-Used Products in 2016:


Becca Moonstone Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed
This is my favorite highlighter, hands down. I love that's subtle and not super glittery, but it still provides a beautiful glow.

beautyblender
This sponge blends out concealer and foundation beautifully. Every now and then, I try using my fingers or a brush instead - it just doesn't compare!

December Favorites

Favorites posts/videos discuss the products (and other misc things) you loved for that month. The products can either be purchased that month or (old) 'rediscovered' items. Favorites are published at the end of the current month or at the beginning of the following month.

hair tamer, colourpop, moroccanoil

ColourPop Smoke n Whistles Cheek Shock Highlighter
I've owned this for awhile but I recently started reaching for it more around the holidays. This highlighter is SO shimmery. It's beautiful but I feel like it's too much for everyday wear. I like wearing it for night outings and special occasions. The texture is really neat - a bouncy cream that dries to a shimmery powder. If you want an extra shimmery highlighter, this is for you!
