Best Of Beauty 2018

Hello my dear pumpkins and welcome back!

I am so happy because I got my new phone so I will be able to start my vlogs, omg I cannot wait! But while we are all waiting for that to happen, I really wanted to share with you the best makeup products of 2018, the makeup products that in my opinion were a major hit this year. Not all of them are new, these are just the products I discovered throughout this year, some of them are really old and I didn’t mention all of them in my blogposts.

Anyways, don’t forget to check out my previous post which is “Festive Makeup Look – Glitter Halo Cut Crease“and let’s get into this post

ABH Soft Glam Palette

Ugh I swear, I still use this palette cause it’s absolutely gorgeous, the shades are so beautiful and so versatile, so you can create so many different looks with this palette – you can read my review here

In general, I really recommend this palette, it’s pricey but so worth it cause the shadows perform so nicely,

You can still get yours from Sephora or Ulta

Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara by Marc Jacobs

This mascara guys is my holy grail but damn it is expensive and that’s why I never repurchased it. It truly gave volume and length to my lashes, it applied super nicely [it didn’t hurt my eyes] and I love the packaging.

ABH Matte Liquid Lipsticks

These are one of my favorite liquid lipsticks ever, I love the shades they offer, I am not sure but I think that in my review I wrote that I didn’t like the formula but I’ve actually grown to like it, they also super long, are transfer proof and are more or less comfortable.

You can gets yours from Sephora

Rainforest of the sea Water Foundation by Tarte

I honestly LOVE this foundation, the finish is just too gorgeous, amazingly hydrating and long-lasting. Plus, it has an amazing coverage and beautiful packaging, so please, this foundation is everything! You can check out my review on it here and get yours from Sephora

Bronzer in “In It to win it” by Colourpop


This bronzer has the most beautiful finish, I love how it looks on my skin tone and I love how it makes my skin look glowy but not too glowy as if I wore a highlighter for bronzer, it just makes my skin look super hydrated and healthy-looking! I actually cannot find it on the Colourpop website, no idea why but I think any bronzer from the brand is amazing, so go check them out!

Lux Lipsticks by Colourpop


So 2018 marked the year Colourpop came out with a bunch of amazing new products including their lux lipsticks which I am a big fan of, they are so pigmented, creamy and long-lasting. Plus, for 7$, the packaging looks so luxurious [it’s called “lux”, duh!!]. I am especially a big fan of the Disney Designer Collection shades, I mean “Tiana” is super gorgeous and “Ariel” is the bets nude I own!

The Weather Collection Highlighting palette by Kylie Cosmetics


If you’ve been following my blog for a long time you know how much I LOVE this highlighting palette, I use it religiously because the highlighters are just so blinding and buttery and the shades look so beautiful on my skin tone. The packaging is also stunning and contains a mirror, which makes it travel-friendly.

Read my review here. Sadly, it is not available anymore :/ but I am sure you can find really good palettes from the brand.

Velvet Lipsticks by Kylie Cosmetics


I am a big fan of Kylie’s liquid lipsticks, but this year, I discovered the velvet formula and oh my god how I love them. I swear, the shades are so unique and gorgeous, and the nudes don’t oxidize unlike many liquid lipsticks from many brands. I used a lot the shades “Vibe” and “Low Key” this year.

Skin Concealers by Kylie Cosmetics


Omg I used this concealer everyday for 9 months because I absolutely loved it, the finish is amazing [it can get weird when you set it but when you use the right technique, it looks amazing], it has a great coverage and it is super long-lasting.

Rosewater Facial Spray by Mario Badescu


Well, this is also the year I discovered this baby here, my holy grail, my favorite setting and prepping spray. This is the best setting spray in the whole wide world, it makes my makeup look so flawless, glowy and long lasting.

Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick by Fenty Beauty in “Ridiiic”

Screen Shot 2018-12-25 at 10.59.32 PM.png

You guys, this is my current favorite blush, I love the finish of it, it’s shimmery but it doesn’t leave glitter on the skin which makes it perfect for dry skin or to just give your skin a nice subtle glow. It is also super long lasting [like very]!

Emerald and Amethyst Obsessions Palettes by Huda Beauty

Screen Shot 2018-12-25 at 10.58.32 PM.png

These gorgeous babies came out in 2018 and I think they were the best thing that came out in 2018 cause honestly, they are so cute and tiny, the shades are gorgeous, the formula is amazing, the packing is stunning, there’s mirror, what more could you want from an eyeshadow palette?

You can read my full review on these babies here and get yours from Sephora.

Suede Matte Lipsticks in “Peachy, don’t kill my vibe”


These lipsticks also came out in 2018 and they are probably the best in the drugstore, I love the formula and that specific shade is gorgeous, it’s a burnt orange, perfect dupe for “Pumpkin” by Kylie Cosmetics, a shade I’ve been wanting to buy for a long time.

Born This Way Super Coverage Concealer by Too Faced

Screen Shot 2018-12-25 at 11.15.43 PM.png

This is my current favorite concealer, it so full coverage, like really full coverage and is so hydrating, I love how it makes my makeup look, super healthy-looking. I hate the Taste Shape tape cause it’s too drying but this one gives as much coverage but feels suer lightweight and is hydrating!

Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara by Essence


My current go-to mascara, I absolutely love it because it gives my lashes so much volume and length, literally makes them look like false lashes. I do hate the fact that the wand hurts my eyes when I apply it but it’s fine, it’s only 5$, I am not gonna complain :p

Dose Of Colors Matte Liquid Lipstick in “Extra Saucy”

Screen Shot 2018-12-26 at 7.28.35 AM.png

Since I purchased this baby here, I’ve been wearing it non-stop, it’s my current favorite red lipstick, I just love the shade so much. I am not a big fan of the formula but it’s not bad honestly. You can read my full review here and you can gets yours here

Single Eyeshadow in “Buttercupcake” by Sugarpill Cosmetics

Screen Shot 2018-12-26 at 7.32.52 AM.png

Ugh how I’ve been obsessed with this eyeshadow, as soon as I purchased, I created like a million makeup looks with it cause I love it so much. This is one of my favorite makeup looks I came up with with this eyeshadow: Autumnal Makeup look: Yellow Cutcrease but you can also read my review on it here and gets yours from BeautyBay.

That’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed this post and if you did, don’t forget to give it a ‘like’ and to follow my blog [you can do that by email if you don’t have a WordPress account].

    I’m ashamed to admit that I’ve never tried any of these. I am going to make a special trip to the store this week!

    Wow! You have put together a [dang] good list. I especially LOVE the Mario Badescu Facial Sprays and the Colourpop Lux Lipsticks. I definitely need to get a move on trying ABH and Fenty Beauty products.

      hehe thanks a lot!! I love ABH, but I’ve not tried enough of Fenty Beauty products actually, I am hoping to try more of their products in the future!

    I love ABH make-up but haven’t tried the super glam palette yet. It looks amazing, the colors are gorgeous!

      it is truly amazing, it’s one of my favorite palettes of all time!! Thanks for passing by xx

    The soft glam palette is amazing! I love all the warm orange and pink tones. I find it so frustrating when I find something I love like that mascara and find out it’s super expensive, that happened to me with the Tarte rainforest of the sea mist. I love it but it’s waaay too much for me to repurchase!
    I loved reading about your favourites this year! x

    December 27, 2018 / 1:02 pm

    This is fantastic! I have been looking for some new suggestions. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing your favourites! I bought Soft Glam in November and only just started using it this month, but I totally agree on it being a favourite for the year. I’ve loved the Too Faced BTS foundation this year, and really want to try the concealer!
