Top 10 from 2018: Personal Favourite Features and Most Popular Ones

I loved looking back at the most popular  (most viewed) features of 2017, and the ones I personally loved writing the most so decided to do the same this year, as well. But I am combining them in one post now.

My Personal Top 5

These are the features that I wrote in 2018 that I loved working on. And, although I love all of them, here are the ones that stood out.

  1. Bridal Beauty: The Products I’ve Used On My Wedding Day (here).I loved writing about the products I’ve used on my wedding day. I did my own makeup, obviously.
  2. Nails Of The Day: Dior Pandore. Forever Red (here). This is a love letter to my red nail varnishes. Can’t live without red manicure, really.
  3. Holiday: Beauty Edition (here). The feature brings so many memories our a lovely time in Cyprus. I also shared the makeup/beauty products I took with me.
  4. My Christmas 2018 Wish List (here).It took forever to put this list together, as these are truly the items I want. Although the Christmas is long gone, I would still want all of those items ( can be for my Birthday and just because).
  5. Favourites Beauty Products of 2017 (here). Always love picking my absolute favourites, and this post features the ones from from 2017.

5 Features With The Most Views

Pantone Colour of 2019: Living Coral

I will try not to start all the upcoming features with how it is hard to believe that it is almost 2019… But, seriously, where did 2018 go? It seems like only yesterday I was writing about the colour of the 2018, according to Pantone. It was Ultraviolet.

But they’ve announced the shade of 2019.  And it is 16-1546 Living Coral, described as “an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge. Vibrant, yet mellow  [Living Coral] embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment.”

I have a degree in culture studies so it is always interesting for me to read how Pantone interpret the social and cultural changes, and how that is reflected in a colour.  So here is the official statement:

“In reaction to the

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.

Last Monday I’ve posted about the luxury eye shadow palettes, so today I want to continue sharing about the brand new releases. And this time it is the three palettes that I personally like the best. Please keep in mind, that I haven’t tried any of the palettes below so I can’t guarantee the quality but all three brands are awesome, and I was never disappointed by their products.
