It’s Wednesday, so time to share some of my favorite things! I had to try lots of new beauty products during my dreaded European debacle a few weeks ago (more on that here) so I wanted to share some of my favorite things that I came across. When you loose all of your luggage, you need to choose what essentials you need: Face, Eyes, Lips, & Cheeks. Here are my favorite new products in 2017:

1. Bye Bye Pores by It Cosmetics

I started using this primer after running low on my usual:  Makeup Forever Skin Equalizing Primer, I decided to try out something new. It Cosmetics has always been a staple and I am so impressed with the quality of their primer. My makeup stays smooth and lasts all day. 

2. ‘Hello Flawless!’ Oxygen Wow Liquid Foundation

I am not a huge fan of liquid foundation. In fact, I’ve my MAC foundation (NC 40) for 4 years now… whoops. I always use mineral makeup for day-to-day use, but when in need of a full coverage foundation I turned to Benefit. Liquid foundation usually makes my skin feel heavy and weighed down, but my skin was still breathable and the coverage was amazing. My color was Toasted Beige, A+!

3. Colourpop Ultra Matte Lipstain in Beeper

This is my absolute favorite color for everyday use. Matte lipstains are amazing, but they do dry out your lips. Layered with chapstick and a good lip scrub, this color should last all day. Beeper is absolutely one of my favorite lip products.

4. Cinematic Blush by Lorac

When I first tried this blush I was afraid the color was too dark, but turns out – it’s great. Lorac’s formula for blush is subtle enough to seen without overpowering your look. The color is buildable, yet blendable. Gorgeous.

5. Loreal Liner Noir Liquid Eyeliner

I was a huge fan of KVD’s Tattoo eyeliner (and still am), but when Loreal sent me a few of their new products I was immediately drawn to their eyeliner. Half the price of the KVD version, this eyeliner has a stay all day formula that is smudge proof. It’s a new staple in my makeup box. 

Have you tried out any new products lately? What are your favorites?
