This has been a great month for makeup. I tried so many new products and rediscovered a few oldies but goodies. So, it is time for me to share my January 2017 Makeup Favorites. Here are the makeup products (new and old) that I have been loving during the last month:
Milk Makeup Blur Stick (reviewed here) – This is one of the first primers that made a noticeable difference on my skin. It really does blur out your pores and problem areas and creates a smooth base for your makeup! Plus, the packaging is so unique. This product has made me very intrigued to try other products from Milk Makeup.
Coverfx Perfect Setting Powder – I am LOVING this powder. It is honestly giving my beloved Laura Mercier Translucent Powder a run for it’s money. It blends out so nicely and does not make your skin look powdery or cakey. This powder keeps me matte while also leaving my skin radiant. What more could you want from a powder?
Too Faced Sweethearts Bronzer in Sweet Tea – Oh my gosh, I love this kind of bronzer. It looks shimmery in the compact but when it goes on your skin you do not see shimmer or glitter at all. It just looks radiant. Not to mention that the color is beautiful. It reminds me of the Hourglass Luminous Bronze Light. These types of bronzers are my favorite because I think they most closely mimic a real tan.
Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara – I love that this mascara provides length and volume but still leaves my lashes looking soft and fluffy! The packaging is so sleek and luxurious too.
Benefit Hello Flawless Powder Foundation – I love this powder foundation, it is so versatile. If I am having a really good skin day I will wear this product on it’s own. However, a really good skin day is RARE for me. So, I like to use this as a finishing powder if my problem areas are still peeking through my foundation. This is also my favorite powder to keep in my purse for touch-ups throughout the day.
Too Faced Mr Right The Perfect Brush – I only own two powder brushes and they are both MASSIVE. So, I have been on the hunt for a smaller powder brush. This brush is the perfect size for precise powder application. Plus, it is adorable (it even has a bow-tie on it!)
Viseart Neutral Matte Eyeshadow Palette – I wish that I had purchased this eyeshadow palette years ago. I am getting so much use out of it. It is the perfect palette to supplement any other eyeshadow or eyeshadow palette. It has everything you could possibly need (the perfect brow bone highlight shade, the perfect transition shade, the perfect liner shade, etc.). Lately, it has been my go to eyeshadow palette for work. I work in a corporate environment so I like to wear all matte shadows to work. This palette is basically the only eyeshadow palette I have worn all month.
IT Cosmetics CC Cream – My oily skin has been seriously dry this month. My nose has been peeling and a lot of my foundations have been emphasizing the issues on my nose. So, I have been reaching for this CC cream over everything else. It is so great for ever skin type and is a must-have for ANYONE.
There are a few items that I purchased at the very end of January that I am IN LOVE with. I considered including them in this post but I really wanted to feature the products that I have been using non-stop for the entire month. I guess that means you will just have to stay tuned for next month’s favorites! What were your January 2017 makeup favorites?!
