Favourites Beauty Products of 2017

It is better late than never, right? So here is finally a feature on my favourite beauty products of 2017.

Here is actually a look back on my 2015 favourites and 2016 Makeup Favourites. I am still obsessed with those products, by the way. And a link to my 2017 monthly beauty favourites. While in 2015 and 2016 I wrote about makeup only, this time it will be about beauty in general. I have chosen 17 products.  Some of the products I loved the most were LE (  Clarins shadows, bronzers for e.g) so here are only those that are still available.

  1. Rouge Bunny Rouge SERENE LIGHT Skin Perfector 

This is probably the product of 2017, and it was also in my 2016 favourites. I have been promising to write a detailed feature about it for  a while now, and I will definitely do it in the near future. Basically this base gives you the most incredible glow, you get that polished and well-rested effect, dry skin’s best friend. It does not give that much coverage, as it is a primer, but I wear it without any foundation on top.  Stay tuned for the photos.

2. theBalm  Balm Desert  (buy from  ASOSFeel Unique and Sephora.)

I’ve hit the pan on this product, and will use it all up. I love how it is called  bronzer/blush, and it is exactly that, it has a nice balance of warmth and reddish undertones. Perfect for adding colour and definition to your face. I love the texture, the formula an the pigmentation. The staying power is also impressive. See the swatch in the middle.

3. Clarins Graphik Ink Liner (from Selfridges,HarrodsEscentual.com,  Nordstorm,  Sephora, Bergdorf Goodman)

I am very picky  when it come to eye liners, it has to be a very specific tip and formula for me to like it. And this Clarins one is absolutely incredible. The best purchase. The tip is

Daniel Sandler Bronze And Glow Watercolour Blushers Review and Swatches. Rave

Regular readers know that I am a big fan of Daniel Sandler blushers, they are so unique with that one-of-a-kind liquid formula. I have written so many times about them, and here is a link to a very detailed review with the tips from Daniel himself. I also wrote about the cream formula, too.

Daniel Sandler Bronze And Glow Watercolour Blushers Review and Swatches 1

I like that Daniel doesn’t bring out tonnes of products but when he does – they are awesome.  This month he added two new shades of the liquid Watercolours and one cream version to his line, and they all are dreamy.

You can choose from Rose Glow ( a pastel pink-peach shimmer) and Golden Glow (warm bronze shimmer); the cream shade is Soft Bronze (a delicate pink-peach hybrid with a twist of a bronze). And they are honestly my favourite shades from Daniel so far, and I have quite a collection at this point.

All three shades give that healthy glowing effect which

Makeup4all 15 Makeup Favourites of 2015

Ok, I am finally doing it!  Writing 2015 yearly favourites that is.  The thing is when I started writing this post I’ve gathered so many products that I’d be going on, and on about them all. This is why here are 15 I loved the most. 15 since it was 2015, yes, I know…

If I had to choose only 1 product that would probably be Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in 25 Alluring Rose (review and swatches)

Long-time readers know how much I love my blushers. And this year it was all about this one, I’ve barely used anything else.  Creme Puff Blush gives that luminous glow that instantly brightens up the complexion. The formula is incredibly soft and smooth and blends into the skin beautifully. I have several shades but Alluring Rose is the love of my [beauty] love.

The other favourite is still my Trish McEvoy Golden Bronzer (review). As you can see from the photo above, it is very well loved. It warms up the complexion without looking orange or muddy.  I  like the hint of radiance it gives, too.

BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl (review) is still the best glow-and-radiance-in-a-bottle product out there.  I usually mix it with foundation  to make my skin look “healthy”. This formula and shade = perfection.

If I had to pick only one “foundation” of the year – that’d be Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer (review and swatches), hands down. It is dry skin’s best friend. Clarins know how to
