Hey everyone! I got really in the mood to blog again so after ages, here’s a new post! 😂
As I haven’t posted in a long time, my makeup collection has grown a lot this year and I’ve been trying a lot of new products! I thought I’d share them all with you and let you know which ones I love and which I don’t and give a little review! Sooo onto the Makeup! ☺️
Let’s start off with probably the best item in 2017! The Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Collab! I think by now, everyone owns one of these 😂 But it’s just amazing! I bought this palette when it first launched on BeautyBay in the UK as I wasn’t prepared to pay US shipping and customs. It’s officially my favourite palette ever, the quality is amazing, the pigmentation on the colours is unbelievable and not to mention, the colour selection is unreal! Definitely get your hands on one of these if you haven’t already.
Next up is a highlighter palette which is actually from Primark! It’s the PS...Bronze Highlight & Glow palette. I think this is amazing! It’s such a pigmented Highlighter and I love and strong glow, never subtle! As I have such fair skin, I can only get away with using the first white shade, sometimes the second pink one, but I always go for the first. I know I only use one colour in this palette and it seems like a waste, but as it’s from Primark, it’s suuuper cheap, so basically worth it!
As you know, Morphe is amazing for eyeshadows and I’d say it’s probably my favourite eyeshadow brand. I have soooo many Morphe palettes, but this one that I got this year is new and amazing. It’s the 25A Copper Spice palette. The golden shimmery shades called my name and I couldn’t deal! This palette claims to be limited edition, so don’t waste any time!!
Oh. My. God. I have no words for this product! This foundation is the best I’ve ever tried! It’s the Huda Beauty Faux Filter Foundation and it came out recently and I was blown away! It’s super full coverage and flawless. It’s quite a new one on the market, but I’d recommend it to anyone. Also the shade range is great as I have very fair skin and the lightest shade actually works for me!
This next product is super high end and was definitely a splurge which I put off for so long but I’m super glad I bought it! I’d heard everyone rave about this product for so long. It’s the Marc Jacobs Omega Bronzer. Marc Jacobs... I know, screams high end! It’s my first ever MJ product but I’ll definitely be buying from them again. It’s a super flawless bronzer that I use in my daily routine and I highly recommend.
Next we have two Jeffrey Star Skin Frost Highlighters. I know Jeffree Star Cosmetics is a very controversial brand but I personally love his products. The black one is his collab with Manny Mua in the shade Eclipse and the silver one is from his newer collection. It’s in the shade “Crystal Ball” from the Summer Chrome collection! I love these as they’re super pigmented and such light shades, which I need.
I have been OBSESSED with this powder! It’s the Maybelline Fit Me powder in Translucent. It’s a white setting powder but it comes off translucent on the face. It’s extremely good at setting your makeup and making you matte, which I like. I have literally been using this every single time I wear makeup and I’d recommend it to anyone!
Next is quite an unpopular product that I don’t hear many people talking about. It’s the VDL Lumilayer Primer. This is such a gorgeous Primer and it’s super glowy and gives you a gorgeous base for your foundation. I would say it’s very similar to Macs Strobe Cream.
This Primer is insane!! I bought this after watching Shaaanxo use it in a YouTube video and she raved about it. It’s the Urban Decay Self-Adjusting Primer. This makes your skin look absolutely flawless and really smothes it out and makes it look perfect. It makes the perfect canvas for the rest of your makeup and really helps blur our redness and even skin tone. 100% recommend!
This is the Smashbox X Casey Holmes collab. Casey is my all time favourite YouTuber and I’ve been watching her for years, so lf course I had to support her with this. This is a highlighting trio called the Spotlight palette. It’s super pigmented and gorgeous and there’s two shades, Gold and Pearl. The one I currently have is Gold. This is a super staple highlighting piece in any makeup lovers collection.
Another YouTuber Highlight collab is the well hyped and loved Becca X Jaclyn Hill in Champagne Pop. I think everyone owns this by now but it’s a super gorgeous colour. It’s highly pigmented and soft on the skin and super glowy.
This has been my all time favourite Primer this year and it’s the YSL Touché Éclat Blur Primer. This Primer is very high end and has gold specs throughout which you can’t see when it’s on the skin. This primer is extremely soft and makes your skin feel silky smooth and ready for foundation. It creates the perfect base for your foundation to apply flawlessly.
This has been a recent favourite but it’s one I had wanted to purchase for a very long time. The LA Girl Pro Conceal was a recommendation from Shaaanxo on YouTube. She loves this concealer and raves about it and I can see why. It’s a great Concealer with good coverage that gives flawless skin under your eyes. It’s also extremely cheap so definitely worth it.
A more higher end Concealer that’s been well loved is the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer. This Concealer is weightless and gives full coverage and gets rid of any bags or discolouration under the eyes. It’s slightly more expensive than the previous one but still affordable at £17. Definitely recommend if you have a little more money to spend.
The final product that I’m going to talk about is the Maybelline X Gigi Hadid collaboration. If I keep going, I’ll be here forever 😂 This is a drugstore product but it’s a lot more pricey. It’s the Lash Sensational Mascara. They originally have this Mascara in their collection but this is limited edition packaging which I adore. I love the wand of this Mascara particularly as it’s curved so coats all your lashes easily. Definitely my all time favourite mascara.
Soo that’s all I’m going to mention in this 2017 Favourites! I hope you enjoyed this blog post and if you did then please leave a comment and share it around ☺️ Also leave me suggestions on other blog posts or tweet me @topshopzoella
