Most Loved Beauty Products of 2017

Most Loved Makeup Products of 2017 || The Glam Surge - ft. Anastasia Beverly Hills, Lancome, The Ordinary, Fenty Beauty, Urban Decay, Leong Cosmetics
Well, hello there! Remember little ol' me? It's been a while since I last blogged and I feel so disappointed at myself for taking such a long break, but it was needed. I'm finally back to the regular routine and had a surge of motivation to get back on my little corner of the internet. (I'll save all that blabbering for another post that may or may not have a little giveaway included in there) Before I get carried away, I just want to stop and say happy new year to everyone of y'all! Hope your holiday season was full of fun happiness and cheers to a new year! For me, 2017 was more focused on skincare, but I can't deny that I found quite a few makeup goodies that blew me away. Here are my most loved beauty products from last year:

Starting off with the base, there were two foundations that I fell head over heels with. The first being The Ordinary Colours Serum Foundation. I love this for two main reasons: it's an amazing foundation and the price point is just phenomenal. In 2017, it was one of the most raved about foundations and I can totally see why that was so. The second foundation I was a huge fan of was the Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Foundation. It took me so long to try this one, but I haven't put it down since. It's become a regular in my everyday makeup routine. Another product I was a tad late to the party to was the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Concealer. As soon as I used it though, I was in love. It has such amazing coverage and a little goes a very long way. I could see why this was super popular within the beauty community. The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer is a product I'm sure you've heard me talking about a million time on here, so I'm sure it needs no introduction. I use it everyday without fail and I've barely made a dent in it. Staying on the bronzer train, I received a little deluxe sample size of the Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder by redeeming a few of my Sephora points. I'm really picky with my contour shades, but the one I have is just perfection. It creates the perfect 'shadow' look so that my face looks nice and snatched.

Definitely had to include some from Fenty Beauty on here. After all, it was pretty much the brand that caught everyone's attention in 2017. Their Killawatt Highlighter in Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby I was a huge fan of (click here for my thoughts on it). I think one of the most talked about palettes last year was the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette. Without a doubt, it took the cake for me. The pigmentation, shade selection, and packaging is just perfection. I'm sure it'll be a favourite of mine for a long, long time. I'm sure no one can deny that Glossier had a really big year. With them finally expanding their reach, the game was changed forever. One of my favourite purchases from them is the Boy Brow. Hands down, one of the best brow gels out there.

I promise we're almost done! A special shoutout goes to Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara aka the only mascara that does something to my short, stubborn, thin, piece-of-work eyelashes. Never will I ever spend money on another mascara because this one is nothing short of amazing. Lastly, Leong Cosmetics No. 14 Mink Lashes*. Before coming across these, I swore to myself that I'd never spend over $5 on falsies but these changed the game for me. They're super silky and the look so flattering on. I already have a ton of backups. 

Products marked with a (*) were sent to me for consideration. All opinions are my own.
