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

SS19 Eye Shadows: Dior, Viseart, Givenchy, theBalm, L’Oreal

I did write about the bronzers and some new lip products that caught my attention this month, so let’s take a look at the eye shadows.  By the way, I often post previews over at  Makeup4all Facebook page, so you may want to give it a like.

First of all, how cool are the new Colour Queen eye shadows from L’Oréal. These are oil infused apparently, they will come in 36 shades. [Pic  is from Val Garland’s insta]. I want that dark chocolate and red.

Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara Review and Photos. Rave

Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara really caught my attention, and I’ve decided to buy one, without reading any reviews before head. I have also picked up the famous Phenomen’ Eyes to see for myself how it works.  When I came home I saw that I’ve  got the Noir Couture in Brown…
Yes, I have a new thing, taking photos of makeup with my books that is.

At first I wanted to exchange it but then I’ve realised that I have tried all kinds of mascaras from green and blue to purple, and even oxblood, but never a brown one, so it was about time [I did buy a brown mascara from Benefit ages ago but forgot about it, and it dried out].

First of all, let’s take a moment to appreciate the

SS18 Lip Products: Clarins, Givenchy, BECCA

There are so many incredible new lip products out for SS18 so I have chosen three that really stood out to me.

If that is not the most gorgeous looking lipstick ever  I don’t know what is then.

BECCA Glow Lip Gloss, $22 from Sephora and

Want It: Givenchy Le Rouge Lipsticks and Les Vernis Nail Polishes

I am very happy to share the newest  Givenchy launches Le Rouge Givenchy and Les Vernis lines.

Although these products will be out only in February, I like them so much that wanted to share now. Mariacarla Boscono on the promos, black and red shades, leather and metal case – it’s like it was made for me.

I am just hoping that the design is as amazing in real life as it looks on the promos.

There will be twelve Le Rouge Givenchy lipsticks (£24/ €33)

These will come in leather and metal packaging. The lipsticks will have a velvet finish, light and creamy formula and intense pigmentation.

And guess what? Le Rouge will have a scent which was created by François Demachy and Nicolas Degennes  – delicate and subtly powdery mimosa and blackcurrant notes.

All shades are divided into three groups: Les Naturels, Les Roses and Les Créations.

And seven
