Best of Beauty: 2017

Hello loves! With the new year quickly approaching, I thought it would be appropriate to share my favorite beauty products that I discovered in 2017. As always, this post is shoppable, so feel free to click on the image if you like something! 

Tarte Shape Tape Concealer

This was the only new face product discovery for me this year, and it's an absolute game changer. It's incredibly full coverage and is great for brightening the face, as well as concealing dark circles and blemishes. 

MAC Liptensity Lipstick in Smoked Almond

This is the perfect pinky-nude shade and is great for daytime and night. The liptensity formula is super pigmented and long wearing.

L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay Shampoo & Conditioner

I actually discovered this shampoo and conditioner while in Paris because I ran out of the kind I brought with me...and they sell it back here in the states at the drugstore! It's designed for people with oily roots and dry ends (which is the category I fall into) and does a great job at cleansing and moisturizing the hair.

Glossier Boy Brow

I love this product so much! On days when I wear full makeup, I use it to top off my brows to keep everything in place. When I'm not wearing a full face of makeup, I'll apply this by itself and it helps to make me look more put together.

Morphe 35O Palette

I purchased this palette back in October (s/o to the Ulta birthday month discount!) and have been using it almost everyday since. It has a wide variety of shades and can be used for everyday natural looks, or more dramatic night out looks.

L'Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara

This is a recent discovery for me, but this is one of the best mascaras I've ever tried...and it can be purchased at the drugstore! It lengthens the lashes while not smearing throughout the day, which is everything I want in a mascara. 

Bed Head Dumb Blonde Violet Toning Shampoo

This year my hair has been the lightest that it's ever been, and my colorist recommended that I use a purple shampoo to keep the blonde light and not brassy. I use this shampoo every other time I wash my hair and it really does help to extend my color.

Chanel No. 5 Eau De Parfum

This is one of the world's most iconic scents, and I finally got my hands on a bottle this year! It's an amazing smelling perfume and was my favorite scent to wear this year.

Verb Ghost Oil

I loved getting to work the Verb this past year! Their ghost oil is my favorite product; I use it after I curl my hair to smooth it out and seal in fly-aways. 

Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick in Hepburn Honey

This is my new favorite nude lipstick. The formula is super creamy and long wearing and goes great with a variety of makeup looks. 


I hope you enjoyed this post and here's to discovering more new beauty products in 2018!
