2020 Editor's Favorites | The Roundup

2020 Editor's Favorites | The Roundup

I hope you enjoyed my year-end posts as much as I enjoyed going through all the reviews I wrote in the past year. I find it useful to go through and see what did or didn't resonate, what brands put out better products in a given year, and so on. In case you missed any post or want to refer back to...

Must-Haves that Stayed Favorites | 2020

Must-Haves that Stayed Favorites | 2020

I'm really satisfied with how many of the must-haves I wrote about in 2019 actually were successfully incorporated into my must-haves that stayed favorites throughout 2020! I did a better job honing in on what I could (not just would want to!) reach for. There are plenty of long-time favorites that...

New Must-Have Beauty Products | 2020

New Must-Have Beauty Products | 2020

Every year, I like to go through my vanity drawers, which is where I keep some "everyday" kind of products; they're a mix of cheek colors, lip products, and complexion products that I really love and let myself reach for occasionally (either to wear after testing new products for the day or to wear...

Best New Makeup Formulas | 2020

Best New Makeup Formulas | 2020

Going through the new formulas released in 2020 (not just new-to-me but that I recall launching in 2020!), there were still plenty of new formulas that launched and made permanent.

I'm so glad there's a high-quality, more mid-end cream blush/bronzer formula available with the Fenty Beauty Cheeks Out...

Lipsticks Over $15 | 2020 Editor's Favorites

Lipsticks Over $15 | 2020 Editor's Favorites

No real surprises on this list--shade extensions from my favorite formulas were a pleasure to test, like Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy, Pat McGrath MatteTrance, and MAC Lipstick (which is a reliable favorite!). New formulas like Fenty Beauty Slip Shine and Bite Beauty Lip Crayons made it onto the...

Lipsticks Under $15 | 2020 Editor's Favorites

Lipsticks Under $15 | 2020 Editor's Favorites

Lipstick releases never really cease. It's incredible how many lip products are released each year, even in a year where manufacturing and supply chains were disrupted! I expect we'll continue to see an onslaught of lip products in 2021, and here's hoping that more of us will be able to wear it in...

Eyeshadows Over $10 | 2020 Editor's Favorites

Eyeshadows Over $10 | 2020 Editor's Favorites

While eyeshadow releases slowed down a bit this past year, they still largely were released within palettes, particularly for mid-end and higher tier brands. MAC released some new eyeshadow singles (which also served to debut their updated eyeshadow formula), but otherwise, the single eyeshadows I...

Eyeshadows Under $10 | 2020 Editor's Favorites

Eyeshadows Under $10 | 2020 Editor's Favorites

2020 was the year of smaller-sized eyeshadow palettes--less mega-sized palettes--which meant I ended up having more space on my reviewing calendar to explore indie brands as mainstream brands' releases slowed down (at least for the first half of the year). This post, and the one that follows (for...

Liquid Lipsticks | 2020 Editor's Favorites

Liquid Lipsticks | 2020 Editor's Favorites

Liquid lipsticks have been trending down--at least in terms of reviews here, which is a partial reflection of trends, what readers are into, and what is releasing!--since 2019, though I think more readers reached for some past releases to get through mask-wearing during 2020! That being said, there...

Pigmented Lipglosses | 2020 Editor's Favorites

Pigmented Lipglosses | 2020 Editor's Favorites

As promised, next in gloss favorites is all about more pigmented glosses that I reviewed in the past year that I enjoyed! I was particularly drawn to Lisa Eldridge's new Lipgloss formula, while Pat McGrath OpuLUST fulfilled all sparkling, metallic gloss dreams!

If you're unfamiliar with how I like...
