Hall of fame: My favourite products of 2016
This post is a little overdue, but I had to take some time to consider what I actually wanted to put on this list! Here are my favourite products of the year.
Favourite fragrance: Frederic Malle ‘Monsieur’ EDP
I love perfume, especially scents that are more or less marketed toward men. Frederic Malle Monsieur is my favourite of this year – it’s leathery, a little smoky, warm and absolutely beautiful.
Tom Ford Patent Finish Lip Lacquer in Red Corset
I am a lipstick fanatic of note, so I have to talk about lipsticks. Tom Ford’s lipsticks are a solid favourite, as is the Patent Finish Lip Lacquer that launched early in the year.
Laura Mercier Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder in Light
I’m not a powder girl, but I recently reviewed the new Laura Mercier Candle Glow powder and fell head over heels. It’s a powder for powder haters.
Paula’s Choice RESIST BHA 9
This has been a year of skincare troubles for me, and I managed to get some serious closed comedones over the summer. The only thing that has helped keep them at bay is Paulas Choice BHA9.
KIKO Colour Kajal in “104 Red”
A visit to London led me to visit my first KIKO store, and I fell in love with the coloured eye pencils. My favourite is this red!
Glossier Boy Brow in Blonde
The feathery brow look is a favourite, and the glossier boy brow is the perfect product. The thick texture makes it much easier to control than other brow gels I’ve tried!
ColourPop Ultra Shock Shadow in “Taco”
Blue eyeshadow is a favourite look, and I love the intense colour payoff and creamy texture of this eyeshadow that builds up easy as anything.
The DECIEM Hylamide Boosters impressed me with their price point and effectivity.
Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Liquid is everyone’s favourite for a reason.
NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer kept my base looking luminous and smooth.
My Beauty Diary Black Pearl sheet masks were my go-to self care mask.
NYX Vivid Bright Liners were a colourful addition to my everyday makeup look.
& Other Stories Sugar Scrub were a faithful body care product when I needed a pick-me-up.
