And here, as promised, are more new launches.

Top 16 Features of 2016

I remember when I have just launched Makeup4all [almost] 8 years ago now, I  would check the analytics every day, sometimes even more than once. As Metallica’s song goes “Sad But True”.  But lately I check the analytics maybe once a month just to see what features you loved the most to make some conclusions for the upcoming posts.

And here are actually 16 most viewed posts of 2016, and I have included only the features about the products that are still available. I was actually surprised to see the most popular review of 2016 was of a  Rouge Bunny Rouge eye pencil. They have recently launched a new shade, so I better write up about it soon.

I was also a bit surprised to see that Max Factor  reviews got a ridiculous amount of views, and I really did not expect that.  But, to be honest, I am happy, as I have a very special love for Max Factor, not only it was the brand I used to buy as a teenager with my first earned money but also, it was the first brand I have ever worked with for Makeup4all, not to mention the history of the brand, so I am happy that the reviews of their products get so many views, I genuinely love so many of them.

Makeup4all Favourite Makeup Products of 2016

I really love reading (or watching) about people’s top favourite beauty products, as this is a great way to discover new gems. I have posted 15 favourite makeup products of 2015 so now it is time to post about my most loved makeup products in 2016.

Unfortunately, four  products (Dior lipstick , Illamasqua nail varnish,  Clarins bronzer and eye shadows) that I absolutely adored and used non-stop this year are no longer available so I will have to mention only those items that you can still get.

Complexion

Rouge Bunny Rouge Serene Light Skin Perfector

This was pretty much the only base product I have been using ever since I received it  several months ago. I still haven’t written a proper feature as I really wanted to give it a good test before that. The product definitely stands up to the “Skin Perfector” name, as it makes the complexion glow without looking too shiny or oily. I also rarely use anything on top since it is a bit tinted. Not that I have a perfect skin but this is enough for me, I only use concealer where needed.

Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer (review and swatches)

This product does not need an introduction. I’ve completely used it up, hence I had to use a different Clarins product for the reference purpose. It is like a dry skin’s best friend, this tinted moisturizer never makes your skin look flaky and never accentuates the dry patches. Instead, the skin looks somehow “healthy” and radiant. Love!

Rouge Bunny Rouge Glide Concealer NAKED DISGUISE  (review and swatches)

Regular readers will probably know that I barely ever use concealer because I don’t really mind a bit of dark-ish circles, as horrible as it sounds. But I personally hate the perfectly concealed under-eye area on myself. I also almost never get spots, so no need for the concealer in any other places. However, I do really like this product, as it makes the under eye area look better but without making you look like a mannequin.

Inglot Sculpting HD Powder in 504 (review)

As you can see from the photo above, this product is very well loved. Perfect shade for  light cool-toned complexions, and the formula is incredibly soft and easy to blend, too.

Daniel Sandler Rose Glow and Golden Glow Watercolour Blushes  (review and swatches).

I have spoken about my love for the Daniel Sandler blushers numerous times but, I think, this year he really killed it. The  two newest shades are to die for, and although I haven’t been wearing blush that much in 2016, I’ve been reaching for these most of the times I have.  Watercolours give you the “blushing from within” kind of effect, a must try. If you are a bit scared of the liquid, which you shouldn’t be, Daniel also has cream blushes now.

I will not be posting any Conclusions/Resolutions features, as I like to keep such things private, even if they are not very personal. But I do wish you all to reach your goals, and to have a successful and a blessed year.

Here is a quick reminder for us all!
