Best Makeup Products of 2017

Is it just me, or does it really feel like the years just blow by the older we get? Seriously, 2017 came and went in, what felt like, a blink of an eye! I’m disappointed in how sporadically I posted throughout the year, and I truly apologize for my lack of activity on this blog. Even though it may not have seemed like it based on what I’ve shared, this year has been incredible. I had so many life changes happening, and while I don’t regret anything, I wish I was able to document it a little more with you guys. I want to commit to being a better blogger in 2018 and actually review more of what I’ve acquired, so please stay tuned for (hopefully) much more content in the new year.

To close this year off, I’m going to stick to a common tradition here in the beauty community by listing off my favourite products of 2017. Even though I got my hands on so many different products, there were a few products that really were my main squeezes throughout the year. These products were my fool-proof, go-to #1’s – and I’m almost certain that many of these also made it onto other people’s favourite lists for the year as well. If you’d like to know why I thought these products made it to my top list of the year, please keep reading!

FAVOURITES | October 2016

There’s only so many ways I can say how quickly these months are going by, so I’ll just say it outright: OCTOBER FLEW RIGHT ON BY. It could be because October was quite the eventful month for me. I was relatively busy with work , family, and friends, and I was faced with unusual circumstances when it came to my skin. Because of a medication I’ve been using lately, my skin has become very dry, irritated, and sensitive. I had a bit of a struggle at the beginning of the month trying to figure out how to deal with the issues I’ve been having, but luckily I found a good routine that’s been working well. A few rockstar products played a major role in keeping my skin in check for the month of October, so if you would like to learn about these lovely products, please keep reading.

REVIEW | Wayne Goss Anniversary Brush Set

I’ve mentioned time and time again that I truly believe that good brushes are key to having flawless makeup. I’m not saying that everyone needs a million brushes in their collection, however I will admit that I have quite a few to choose from after collecting some over the years. I finally got a feel for which brushes work for me and which ones don’t, and for the ones I like, I considered upgrading them to some higher quality pieces. I’ve been learning more and more about Japanese-made brushes, and have decided to slowly replace my brushes with them. Unfortunately, these brushes are typically more expensive than the average ones, therefore it’s been challenging to find ones that are affordable.

Queue the Wayne Goss collection: these are reportedly very high quality, Japanese-made brushes, and they are relatively more affordable than the other more well-known brands available. His Anniversary Set recently came back into stock, so naturally I jumped at the chance to try them out.
