My 2017 Beauty Favorites

Day 12 of the new year. I'm not late to this at all! I debated on not doing it this year but I asked you guys on Twitter and you said you wanted it. You also said you wanted the beauty and lifestyle favourites as 2 posts. So the lifestyle post will be up later.

I'm going to be talking about all the beauty products I loved in 2017. A lot of them didn't come out in 2017. Most have been out forever. I just want to share all the beauty products I loved throughout the year! Old and new!


Benefit Porefessional Primer

This primer makes my face feel so smooth and soft! I noticed a huge difference in oil control with this primer! My foundation looks so much nicer now!

Tarte Hybrid Gel Foundation

I got this foundation from my sister for Christmas and I immediately fell in love with it. It has great coverage and it feels so light. I couldn't believe how light it was.

Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation

Another foundation with really nice coverage. It's great on my t-zone! I can get oily and this foundation has done a really good job of keeping that under control.

Maybelline Superstay BetterSkin Powder

Influenster sent me this powder when it came out and I really like it. It applies nicely and doesn't cake. I got the lightest shade possible and it matches pretty well. It sets my foundation well and takes away all the dewiness. I love a matte finish and this powder does it really nice!

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick + 24/7 Glide-on Liner in Blackmail

I love this shade! I got the lipstick and liner in a duo and adore them both. I really love Urban Decay lip products. I love this purple berry. It's described as a deepened cherry. I love a good berry! The lipstick finish is a comfort matte. It is nice and soft and isn't drying. The liner isn't drying either. I love them both!

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick in 107

I have loved this lipstick for the longest time. I think I got my first one in 2014. I love the shade! It's a perfect middle line between berry and red!

Lorac Pro Matte Lip Color in Mulberry

I love to wear this lip colour as a full lip liner under 107! This lip colour is a little to dry so it needs a lipstick over it. I love the colour Mulberry and 107 create together!

MAC Retro Matte Lipstick in Ruby Woo

This is my go-to classic red lipstick. It will always be a favourite! I love the finish and it isn't a dry matte. I love the bright classic red! I didn't wear it all that much this year, I was all about the berries. But I did wear it a bit last January.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

This is my favourite mascara out of every mascara that I own. I love the brush. And I love that the formula isn't super thick. It doesn't weight down my lashes or stiffen them up.

Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Liner

I love this liner! It glides on and stays put! Once it's in place it isn't going anywhere. And I always have some leftover when I take off my makeup so it will stay through just about anything if my face wash can't get it off.

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette

I started using the medium brown shades in this palette to do my brows and it has been doing amazing! I love the way it looks! I also use this palette to do my eyes occasionally but I mostly used the Loarc Pro To Go Palette.

Lorac Pro To Go Palette

Speaking of this lovely palette I have been using it non-stop. I love to use the shadow shades Cafe and Chai for my eyes. It's really been the only thing I've been putting on my eyes. Even though I luge this palette everywhere I rarely use the blush and bronzer. I always have some other brand I want to use.

Tarte Amazon Clay 12 Hour Blush in Paaarty

This was one of the Sephora B-day Gifts for 2017. It was an exclusive shade for the Sephora rewards members. I fell in love with it! I immediately started using it and haven't stopped.

Benefit Original Hoola Matte Bronzer

I love this bronzer! It was the first bronzer I've tried that wasn't orange-toned. I hate orange-toned, so this was perfect. It was all I wore for the longest time. Now I try to switch out my bronzers from time to time.

Urban Decay Beached Bronzer in Bronzed

I love this bronzer. It is soft and velvety and it isn't orange-toned! It goes on beautifully and wears all day! I always keep it in my makeup bag! It's my go-to because it blends out and builds up easily! So it's easy to use for any look.


Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

I haven't used a brush for my foundation since trying the Miracle Sponge. I love using a sponge for my foundation! I love how smooth my foundation looks with this sponge!

Real Techniques Miracle Eraser

I love this little guy! It pulls away liner and mascara mistakes like it's nothing!

Real Techniques Powder Brush

I adore this brush! It is so big and fluffy! It is a perfect powder brush! I love how it applies powder! It loves how big it is. I can powder my whole face in about 3 strokes.

SPI Brushes

SPI sent me a set of their brushes and I really like them! They are really soft and apply product really nicely. I like the shadow brushes the best. I use them the most. You can never have enough shadow brushes!


Origins By All Greens Foaming Cleanser

Origins sent me this cleanser and I fell in love with it. My face feels so nice after I wash my face! I use it as my daily cleanser and I love it!


Sinful Colors Nail Color

Influenster sent me a box with a Sinful Color polish in it and I fell in love with the brand shortly after that. I have 8 colours from them now and I love it! The black is my favourite black ever!

Holo Polish

Thanks to Cristine of Simply Nailogical I have fallen in love with holo nails! I love the rainbows! I really want to get some of Cristine's nail polishes in 2018!

Sally Hansen Nail Polish Strips

I have used these before in 2016 and loved them! I bought some toward the end of 2016 but my nails kept breaking and I didn't want to use them on short nails. I finally used them again in November and I love them so much! I need to get them again! They are such a quick and easy manicure! Plus they are real nail polish.

Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Base and Topcoat

I have a love-hate relationship with this polish. It takes a hot minute to dry and you need to let your polish dry about 2+ hours before applying this top coat but it hards so nicely and extends wear time like crazy. Essie polish chips in about 2-3 days for me and it's last 8 with Sally B+T.

Sally Hansen Matte Topcoat

I love doing matte nails! This topcoat becomes so hard. It's crazy. It makes me want to try the glossy coat from this line.

And those are my beauty favourites from 2017! What did you love in 2017?
