It is finally time for my 2019 favourites, and I make it no secret that I love writing these posts. 2019 was a fab year, and I’ve struggled to narrow things down to include here. Mainly because I forget what I’ve been loving for more than a couple of months. I hope you had an amazing 2019 and an even better 2020.
Let’s get into my 2019 Favourites!
ColourPop | Single Shadows
I’ve loved pretty much everything I’ve tried from ColourPop, but the single shadows have been a standout for me. The build your own palette deal is my favourite, as they have so many beautiful shades to pick from. My standout shade is Snake Eyes, as it’s the perfect lid shade. I also picked out three single shadows for Christmas and I’m already in love with Soo Good. The shadows last all day and blend really easily.
Wet n Wild | Blossom Glow Highlighter
As you can tell, this highlighter has been very well loved. This has been pretty much all I’ve been using throughout 2019, as it’s reliable. It is very pigmented, and lasts all day. It blends beautifully and never exaggerates texture. The colour is beautiful it’s an iridescent silver and matches my skin tone perfectly.
Milani | Sun Kissed Silky Matte Bronzer
I feel like no one talks about this bronzer and it is such a shame. I’ve used this every time I’ve done my makeup and it looks like I’ve barely touched it. Which I guess is the beauty of it being so pigmented, as you really don’t need to apply that much. I go in with a light hand and gradually build it up, as it is easy to go overboard. Mine is in the shade Sun Light which is a great contouring shade. It does have a slight tropical scent, but it isn’t my favourite and it isn’t that strong.
ColourPop | Lippie Balm
When I picked a ColourPop lip balm up I didn’t expect to love it as much as I do. I originally purchased in August and since then I’ve gone through a full tube and purchased two more.The strawberry one is my favourite, as it’s a sheer pink that is very nearly clear. What I love about this balm is that it’s like a lip balm and a gloss in one. It’s extremely hydrating, but looks like a gloss which means it’s great over lipsticks. The only problem is that it is a bit sticky, but other than that I love it a lot.
Too Faced | Born This Way Foundation
In 2019 I decided to try and use up what I have before repurchasing this foundation for what feels like the fiftieth time. Part of me hoped I’d fall in love with another foundation, but this one comes out on top all of the time. This foundation just works for me, and it’s as simple as that. It’s medium coverage, but I can build it up without it looking caked on. This has never dried my skin out, as it contains coconut water and hyaluronic acid. It’s just a really good foundation, that I go back to time after time.
In 2019 I got to visit so many amazing places, which I am incredibly grateful for. Tenerife was a highlight as it was my first holiday with Jake and we had an incredible time; the hotel was beautiful and in a fab location. Krakow was an amazing way to start December, as we were able to visit the Christmas Markets and again we booked a lovely hotel. Venice was a dream to see all of the beauty of the streets and of course the orange boots because of the floods. Venice is the holiday we got through Wowcher, and if you’d like a review of that experience let me know; because wow, I have some thoughts.
My Brother Got Married
On the 10th August my brother got married and it was such a lovely day. It was also amazing to be involved by being a bridesmaid. Everything about the day was amazing, and I couldn’t be happier for them both.
Decluttering and Using What I Have
This is something I never thought I’d get into. I remember in 2016/ 2017 I hated hitting pan and as soon as I saw that dip in a product I’d move onto something else, as I never wanted to use anything up. Now I’ve realised makeup doesn’t last forever and I want to get some bits used up. Hitting pan is my new goal and I want to get through as much as I can.
Well there we have it! Those were my 2019 Favourites. I always enjoy putting these posts together and this post was no different.
What did you love in 2019?
