New Year, New Yearly favourites post right? These posts are always my favourite to put together, and my 2017 favourites was one of my favourite posts to write. Like last year, this is going to be slightly long, and I hope you enjoy!
Before we start, I hope you have an amazing 2019!
Right, let’s go!
Too Faced | Born This Way Foundation
Since I tried this foundation I have not stopped talking about it. This is one of those products that I put off buying for so long, but I regret it now. It’s medium coverage that can be built up without looking cakey. It’s hydrating, as it contains coconut water and hyaluronic acid. This means it might not be good for those with oily skin. It has a dewy finish, but can be set down with a good powder.
Doll Beauty | Like a Diamond Highlighter
I’ve mentioned this highlighter countless times on my blog, and I still love it. If you like an intense, blinding highlight then you need this. This is the second highlighter I’ve ever hit pan on, which has made me realise I should get some use out of other things in my collection. I have a full review on this if you’d like to read more, but it’s been my favourite for a while now.
Maybelline | Lash Sensational Mascara
This is something that I don’t talk about a lot on my blog, but I love it. It’s been my go to mascara for a couple of years now. I had to include this here, as I’ve repurchased it countless times this year, and I’ve not really tried many other mascaras. Maybelline do amazing mascaras and this is no different. It lengthens, and makes my lashes look a lot better.
Physicians Formula | Butter Bronzer
I bought this bronzer in January and used it a lot through Spring and Summer. It’s pretty much impossible to get a hold of in the UK which is a shame. Considering I’ve used this for a while it’s barely dented, so at least it lasts a long time. It’s a beautiful bronzer that is pigmented, without being too pigmented. Which means it doesn’t take too much work. I used it to warm my face up, and it is the perfect colour for it. It also smells incredible which always helps, as it is tropical scented.
The Body Shop | Sugar Scrubs
I love body scrubs, and 2018 is the year I discovered Sugar Scrubs from the Body Shop. The only thing that irritates me with this is how quick it goes. For the price, it seems like you don’t get many uses. Oh, and another thing is the scent selection. There is an abundance of cream scrubs, but two sugar scrubs. The Mango one does smell incredible, so I can’t complain too much. If you want to find out more, then I have a full post on this.
The Body Shop | Skincare
I wrote a blog post back at the beginning of December of my Body Shop haul, but it has yet to see the light of day. My skin got so bad I ended up buying myself a new routine from The Body Shop and my skin is thanking me for it. I’m no longer struggling from texture, and my skin feels a lot better. The Vitamin E range has helped massively, as well as the Oils of life Cleansing Oil in Gel.
I was lucky enough to go on some amazing holidays in 2018, which I’m incredibly thankful for. I’ve written about my trip to New York and Orlando already, and it’s been so fun to be able to look back on those posts. We also finished the year with a day trip to Paris, which you may have caught on my Instagram stories, which was insane to say the least. Going to Italy in September was a highlight, as it’s somewhere that has been on the top of my bucket list for pretty much ever.
I’ve mentioned a couple of games for the Switch in a few posts now. I didn’t want to narrow it down to a game, so I’ve bundled it all together. I’ve enjoyed playing Just Dance to get fit, and I’ve spent a lot of time on other games too. I’m also looking forward to the 2019 releases as well as hoping Spyro will be released soon.
Green & Blacks | Velvet Fruit Raspberry
Let’s be real would it really be a favourites post of mine without food thrown in somewhere. Even though I hate myself for liking these so much, as they’re expensive. I’m pretty sure the price had gone up to £3 the last time I saw them, so I think I’m going have to say goodbye to these. This is a raspberry jelly cube covered in dark chocolate, and I’m just going to stop typing now, as I’m sad that I can’t justify the price.
Morrison’s | Triple Chocolate Cookies
Something a little more affordable now, but loved just as much. In fact probably a little too much. I know I’m getting old now as I have a favourite Supermarket… it’s Morrison’s if you were wondering. I picked these cookies up on a whim and they’re my absolute favourites. Plus they’re normally on offer two for one, or something like that.
There we have it! My 2018 favourites.
What a year. I hope you had an amazing year and here’s to 2019.
Thank you for reading!
