To continue my annual tradition, today I thought I would share 5 of my favourite beauty products of 2016. All of these products were featured in my hearting monthly posts or I shared a full review throughout the course of last year – they are products that I discovered in 2016 and came to love.
To kick things off, my first favourite of 2016 is the L’Oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes Excess Mascara (full review here). I use this mascara almost everyday as it lengthens and defines my lashes beautifully while the formula doesn’t smudge or crumble. I apply 3 coats for maximum effect and I don’t find that it clumps my eyelashes together. I’m about due a replacement tube I reckon!
Another product I have been using daily is the Soap & Glory One Heck Of A Blot Instant Perfecting Power Primer. It really helps my make up last longer whilst keeping shine at bay throughout the day. This has certainly become a staple in my routine.
My favourite scent for 2016 was definitely the My Burberry Black Perfume (full review here) – it’s absolutely divine! The bottle is stunning and I’m completely in love with the scent, it is sweet yet rich, intense but feminine, floral yet captivating.
The highlighter I’ve been reaching for the most this past year is the Urban Decay Afterglow Highlighter in Fireball (full review here). Fireball is a warm coral with a pink duochrome which is absolutely stunning. I can build this highlighter up without going overboard or use just a little for when I want a more subtle glow making it extremely wearable. Definitely a firm favourite!
I purchased the Sachajuan Ocean Mist back in June after reading the lovely Gemma’s glowing review. I use this so regularly that I’m now on my second bottle, it adds texture and volume without leaving my hair crisy or weighed down while extenuating my waves and curls. This sea salt spray smells gorgeous too. The Sachajuan Ocean Mist has been a total game changer and I can’t imagine ever not using it as part of my haircare routine.
