Beauty favorites: My top 10 products of 2017

2017 has come to an end. Among the usual year-end reflections is a little recap of my most used beauty products. I've tried to stay as honest and unbiased as possible, featuring not just the products I love, but those I actually used the most.

1. bareMinerals Statement Matte liquid lipstick in Luxe - I've loved this whole line and this shade was my most-used.

2. Buxom BIG Tease mascara - I've only recently tried this mascara for the first time but I am in love: it doesn't clump, doesn't smudge, and creates a perfect fanned out, voluminous fake lash effect.

3. Benefit the POREfessional Pearl Primer - this is another newer release but I haven't been this enthusiastic about a primer in a long time. This little wonder in a tube manages to give you poreless and matte but luminous skin. 

4. Benefit GALifornia Blush - I wore this blush for 4 months straight this summer. If you know me, you know I like to switch shades so this was unheard of! 

5. Vichy Mineral 89 Skin Booster - I have already gone through 3 bottles of this. I love this serum/booster so much!! I wear it on its own in the warmer months, and under my usual serum and moisturizer in the winter. It's like a fresh, pleasant glass of beautifying water for your skin.

6. Benefit Good Proof Brow Pencil - I don't like spending too much time on my brows, but I do want perfect brows. This is the product that makes this miracle happen. 

7. L'Oréal Voluminous Lash Paradise mascara - another mascara I've used a ton this year. This one gives you great, full babydoll lashes. It does smudge on me a little though, so make sure to wear a primer.

8. itCosmetics Your Skin But Better CC cream - a tinted moisturizer that provides full coverage, has SPF50 and lasts all day? Yes please. 

9. Nars Velvet Matte Foundation Stick - when I reached for foundation, this was usually it. I love the stick form, it makes it so easy to apply. The formula is creamy and the coverage is fantastic. 

10. Klorane Dry Shampoo with nettle - I've used Klorane dry shampoo for over 10 years now, but only tried the nettle version this year and I'm never switching. This is the best dry shampoo, period. 

What were your favorite beauty products this year? 

* Please note that some of these products were sent to me complimentary for review purposes. However, this did not affect my opinion of the products, and the facts that I kept reaching for them over and over and re-purchasing them.
