Last year was very busy and I didn’t realize how it flew by, a lot has happened and a lot has changed. Still, some new beauty favorites kept my good spirits in 2017 and I wanted to write a post about it and share it with you guys.
Garnier Biphase Micellar Water
I think that almost every beauty guru has raved about this cleansing micellar water and there is a reason why. Since I’ve tried it, I think I went through three bottles at least and there is nothing like this product to take my mascara off. I normally use it for my eye makeup, but if I am too lazy to wash my face, it works just fine for removing foundation and lipstick as well.
L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask
This range of clay-based masks came out not too long ago and as someone who loves to pamper their skin, I had to try it out. I went for the Exfoliate and Refining Mask that promises to improve your skin texture. I have to say that there are no magical results, but my skin feels much clearer and fresh after using the mask (maybe I have to use it for a little longer). Apart from the clay, there are tiny pieces inside that help with exfoliating and getting rid of your old skin. I put this product in my favorites since so far this is the best mask I have tried out and working on skin texture is work in process that takes a lot of time and dedication.
The Ritual of Karma Sun Protection
I have already written a post about this SPF protection cream, but if you haven’t read it make sure to check it out! Since the summer continued quite far ahead last year, I used the cream all the way through October. Plus, I am currently using a cream containing glycol acid, so I will soon be returning to this favorite of mine.
L’Oreal Infallible Foundation
Since I have an acne-prone skin, I used to wear one of Vichy’s foundations for years. Then it was discontinued out of nowhere and I had to switch to one of their much heavier ones, needless to say, I didn’t stick with it for too long. I was very skeptical towards foundations from the drugstore and I’ve always thought they are going to invigorate my skin even more. After trying this one from L’Oreal, however, I changed my opinion about drugstore foundations completely and I could not be more happy with the wear and the coverage I get from it.
Maybelline Lash Sensational
Are you surprised? I guess not 😀 since every beauty guru was practically in love with this mascara, I did not stray far from the common opinion about this product and I can say, hands down, it is one of my very favorites. It gives me both the length and volume I need and if I want things to get a bit more dramatic I just put an additional coat and pre-curl my lashes with a lash curler. It is easy to take off and rarely smudges, especially if I did not overdo it with the moisturizer.
Bourjois Color Boost Crayon
I am a sucker for red lips and I do not mind wearing them even on a daily basis. Yet, I find that many lipsticks are rather drying and uncomfortable to wear every day. Therefore, once I found this lip crayon by Bourjois I have worn it regularly without any problems. I have it in the color Red Sunrise and I have already purchased a second lipstick since this one is already running low. I know that Bourjois is not easy to find in Austria, but hey, that is why we have Notino and online shopping, right?
Narciso Rodriguez Poudrée Perfume
After all those budget-friendly options, it is time for something a tiny bit more luxurious. I love all sorts of fragrances and I get a mini heart attack if I am out at the door and realize I have forgotten to put some perfume on. I do not have a huge collection and I try to keep things in rotation since there are so many fragrances that I want to try that I just can’t wait to go through the bottle and get a new one. Narciso Rodriguez’s Poudrée has definitely been my most favorite one throughout this year and I love its powdery, flowery scent. I feel it is a very springy aroma so make sure to try it out!
There you go, these are some of the things that found their constant spot on my beauty table and there are not leaving soon. I hope you found those reviews helpful and Enjoy!
