Must-Haves that Stayed Favorites | 2019

Must-Haves that Stayed Favorites | 2019

I stayed true to a lot of my long-time favorites I wrote about in 2018, but I definitely added in and replaced some products with my new must-haves in 2018 along with my new must-haves for 2019.  Keep in mind that these are products that I really enjoyed using enough to 1) remember they exist, 2)...

New Must-Have Beauty Products | 2019

New Must-Have Beauty Products | 2019

There are a lot of shades to love from those reviewed in 2019, but what are the products that I'd like to add to my vanity (or my mental must-haves section of my "makeup library" as my vanity doesn't fit everything I'd like it, too!). Think of these as the products that I remember fondly; they’re...

Best New Makeup Formulas | 2019

Best New Makeup Formulas | 2019

Every year, new formulas are introduced, which may or may not be replacing a newly-discontinued formula.  Sometimes the formulas are truly superior to past formulas on the market, and other times, they're just so-so.  At year-end, I like to consider all the new formulas I've trialed in the last...

Lipsticks Over $15 | 2019 Editor’s Favorites

Lipsticks Over $15 | 2019 Editor’s Favorites

It's so hard to pick favorites! I really do suffer from appreciating different finishes, types of formulas, undertones, and a plethora of shades.  Lisa Eldridge's Velvet Lipsticks were as good as billed, which I finally reviewed in 2019 (they sold out so quickly that I was waiting for a restock to...

Lipsticks Under $15 | 2019 Editor’s Favorites

Lipsticks Under $15 | 2019 Editor’s Favorites

How many lipsticks did you wear this year? I might have donned some 750+ lipsticks (across all types, pencil, liquid, traditional) over the last year! Lipstick is the most competitive category; it's the one that I feel like I'll never, ever cover well because there are so many formulas that...

Eyeshadows Over $10 | 2019 Editor’s Favorites

Eyeshadows Over $10 | 2019 Editor’s Favorites

Eyeshadow palettes continued to be released in full force throughout 2019, but there were some higher-end single eyeshadows that caught my eye over the year.  It was nice to see Pat McGrath singles launch earlier this year with some standout shades like Lapis Luxury and Divine Mink become...

Eyeshadows Under $10 | 2019 Editor’s Favorites

Eyeshadows Under $10 | 2019 Editor’s Favorites

With over 2,000 powder eyeshadows (loose and pressed) tested and reviewed (that includes shades found only in palettes) in 2019, there's a lot to go through! In the under $10 category, the two heavy players are ColourPop and Sydney Grace, both of which have fairly consistent, better-performing...

Liquid Lipsticks Over $15 | 2019 Editor’s Favorites

Liquid Lipsticks Over $15 | 2019 Editor’s Favorites

As I mentioned in the previous best of post featuring my favorite liquid lipsticks under $15... there weren't nearly as many liquid lipsticks reviewed in 2019 as there were in prior years, which I think reflects a trend away from liquid lipstick, generally, though there are still plenty of liquid...
