Can this be? I’m finally getting a yearly favourites post up at the end of December rather than the middle of January. I’ve really enjoyed putting this together as I love looking back through the year and picking out everything that I loved.
Let’s get into my 2020 Favourites!
Too Faced | Sweet Peach Palette
I rediscovered this palette in July and it’s been one of my go to’s ever since. It’s weird to think that I nearly decluttered this palette at the beginning of the year, and now it’s one of the ones I reach for the most. The shades are easy to work with, as they’re pigmented without being over the top. Luscious has been my favourite shade to wear over the lid, and I managed to hit pan, so I am very happy about that.
ColourPop | Going Coconuts Eyeshadow Palette
Another amazing palette. In fact, I have a full review, if you’re interested. This palette is a neutral lovers dream. When I use this palette I never have to dip into a different one, as this has all bases covered. The only downside is I struggle to get a variety of looks, as I find myself always doing the same thing. One of the best things about this palette is that there isn’t a pressed glitter.
Jolie Beauty | Saintly Highlighter
This product was gifted to me, but all opinions are my own. This highlighter blew me away from the first swatch. It’s beautiful, from the lack of chunky glitter, to how smoothly it applies. This has been my go to ever since I received it, and I don’t know how I’m going to go back to using other things. If you would like to read more then I have a full review.
Fenty | Gloss Bombs
Top to Bottom: Fussy and Fenty Glow.
These glosses are amazing. Fussy is a pinky shimmer and Fenty Glow is a universal rose nude. Both shades are absolutely beautiful, and Fussy comes practically everywhere with me. They aren’t sticky and they make my lips look fuller and smoother, as they contain shea butter. The scent is also incredible, it’s very sweet. It couldn’t be my 2020 favourites without these.
Fenty | Petal Poppin Cream Blush
Would you believe that before 2020 I never used to wear blush? This is the blush that started my love for it, and it’s still my favourite. Petal Poppin is a medium pink that applies sheer and can be built up. I feel like this was an amazing blush to start with, as it’s very user friendly.
ColourPop | Peekaboo Super Shock Shadow
2020 also marks the year I fell back in love with ColourPop’s super shock shadows. As you may be able to tell I have been reaching for Peekaboo a lot. It’s an ultra metallic which means it makes the most perfect glitter topper. As it’s very light you can wear it on it’s own for a subtle wash of glitter which I love.
Charlotte Tilbury | Dancefloor Princess Lipstick
I have been trying to work my way through this lipstick this year, as I love it. I’ve used it countless times and it doesn’t look that worn, which is an eye opener to how long lipsticks last for… Dancefloor Princess is described as a pop pink and is based on Kylie Minogue. This lipstick is very creamy and hydrating which means it doesn’t have good lasting power, but it is a very comfortable formula.
Bali Body | Fake Tan
This product has been gifted to me in the past, but all opinions are my own. At the beginning of 2020 I decided that I wanted to start fake tanning, and I fell in love with this one. Not only is it the most beautiful colour, but it is extremely easy to apply. The guide colour makes application a dream as you can see exactly where the product is and what the colour is likely to be. I always apply this at night and wash it off in the morning, and it’s never done me wrong. If you’d like to read more, I have a full review.
With lockdown freeing up a lot of my time, I found myself reaching for my Nintendo Switch a lot. At the time I loved Animal Crossing, but I must admit that I haven’t been on for a while now, but I keep telling myself to give it another go. Just Dance has become my favourite way to exercise, as it’s so much fun and doesn’t feel like a workout. There are so many other amazing games, and it’s truly helped me to pass the time and unwind.
I Became an Auntie
On the 20th September my sister in law gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, which meant I became an Auntie for the first time. It’s crazy to see how much he has grown already in such a short amount of time, and he is truly a ray of sunshine.
We Had an Offer Accepted on a House
This still doesn’t feel real. Even though we are slowly coming to the end of the paperwork, and things are moving along nicely. So hopefully we get a date soon, but we should be in, in January. It’s very exciting and I can’t wait for the next chapter.
There we have it! Those were my 2020 favourites.
