Best of Beauty 2017: Makeup and Skincare


Happy New Year guys! Hope your new year is off to a great start!

As I always do at the beginning of each year, I like to reflect upon the best of the best beauty products I discovered over last year. I found so many great new things in 2017! From makeup and skincare to bath & body products, today I have a roundup of my top beauty favorites of 2017…both drugstore and high-end.

These are the fabulous finds that stood out from the crowd and secured a top spot in my beauty stash so I am excited to share my love for them again! Here they are…

Best Beauty Products 2017 | Best Makeup 2017 | Best Foundation | Best Skincare 2017

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakout Full-Coverage Treatment Concealer ($ 28)

This is a drying lotion and concealer in one that pulls double duty by concealing and healing breakouts at the same time. It provides great coverage while soothing and treating acne! It comntains proven acne fighters like tea tree, sulfur, witch hazel and a gentle AHA/BHA complex (salicylic acid and glycolic acid).

L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara ($ 9)

The holy grail of drugstore mascaras! With a pretty pink tube and a full brush with over 200 bristles, it offers flake-free voluminous coverage that lasts all day (but is easy to remove!) At only $ 8 a pop, it’s a no-brainer drugstore pick-up. And in case you didn’t know, it’s also a drugstore dupe for Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara!

Maybelline Dream Cushion Fresh Face Liquid Foundation ($ 8.26)

I think this is one of the best drugstore cushion foundations! It has a creamy texture that applies smoothly and is lightly hydrating but not heavy or greasy. With a nice medium coverage and a natural satin finish that’s neither glowy nor too matte, this foundation ticks all the right boxes for cushion foundation fans like me…without a hefty price tag!

Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($ 42)

Estée Lauder’s original Double Wear Stay-in-Place Liquid Foundation was too matte for my liking but the new Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup is right up my alley! It gives me great medium coverage with a satin matte finish that looks very natural and wears all day. Not to mention, this new foundation is also infused with antioxidants and SPF 30 which is always a plus in my book!

Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour ($ 4.99)

This matte liquid lipstick is a winner for me on all fronts with its amazingly pigmented formula that stays put without being uncomfortably drying.This is definitely one of the best drugstore matte liquid lipsticks! The quality here rivals many high-end liquid lipsticks, but it’s an all-out beauty bargain under $ 5!

Olay Daily Facials 4-in-1 Water Activated Cleansing Cloths ($ 11, 66 count)

I LOVE these new facial cleansing cloths from Olay! Activated with water, these textured cleansing cloths remove dirt, oil and makeup (even waterproof mascara) with a soap-free lather while exfoliating skin…quickly and gently! It’s a multi-tasking must-have for anyone who wants a simple and hassle-free cleansing routine.

Estée Lauder Pure Color Love Lipsticks ($ 22)

From the luxe, pigment-packed formula to an array of stylish, gorgeous shades in fashion-forward finishes, I love everything about these new lipsticks! You can checkout the swatches here.

IT Cosmetics Perfect Lighting Radiant Touch Magic Wand ($ 29)

This 2-in-1 liquid concealer + correcting brightener is the perfect dupe for YSL Touche Eclat! Even better, it’s cheaper at only $ 29 and way more pigmented…good news all around! It conceals my dark circles with a natural fimish and wears well throughout the day without settling in those fine lines. If you love the YSL cult-favorite but find it a bit too expensive, I highly recommend trying out this newcomer by IT Cosmetics!

Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial ($ 80)

This chemical peel works as a facial in a tube! The formula contains a whopping pro-quality 25% AHAs (glycolic, tartaric, lactic, and citric acids) and 2% BHA (salicylic acid) blend to exfoliate and brighten skin. Just leave it on for 10 to 20 minutes (you’ll feel a light tingle!) and say hello to soft, supple, glowing complexion! It’s pricey but worth the splurge.

CliniqueFIT Workout 24-Hour Mascara ($ 20)

This volume’s mascara is a part of Clinique’s new fitness inspired makeup and skincare collection. This mascara really goes the distance and wears really well, even after a sweaty workout session…whether it be my zumba class or Yoga! It stays on without smudging, smearing or flaking. If you wear mascara at the gym, you NEED this now!

Revlon ColorStay™ Crème Eye Shadow ($ 7)

If you like cream eyeshadows, you need to try these ones from Revlon! The eyeshadow formula is top notch and the quality rivals some high-end brands. Not only is it well-pigmented with a silky, weightless feel but also stays put (and crease-free) all day long. I have swatches of 4 shades here.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint ($ 12.80)

My dry skin loves this lightly hydrating sheer foundation! It provides natural, lightweight coverage and evens out my skintone perfectly, making my dull, tired skin look fresh. It’s perfect for those days when I want a quick and easy makeup look!

Cetaphil Redness Relieving Tinted Facial Moisturizer SPF 20 ($ 11)

This multi-tasking tinted moisturizer not only offers broad spectrum sun protection with gentle, 100% mineral SPF, but also provides light to medium coverage while neutralizing any redness on my face and keeps skin hydrated. This one is a keeper…even for sensitive, redness prone skin!

Derma-e Vitamin C Concentrated Serum ($ 19)

This is one of my favorite Vitamin C serums! It packs the power of stable non-oxidizing Vitamin C along with anti-aging Probiotics, and antioxidant-rich green tea to help brighten skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles. Plus, soothing aloe, hyaluronic acid and vitamin E provide essential hydration.

I love its cosmetically elegant texture that glides on super smoothly, but my favorite part is its light, soothing scent. Derma E is also vegan + cruelty-free which is always a plus!

Dove Shower Foam ($ 6)

This shower foam is one of my everyday essentials! With its soft, fluffy lather straight out of the pump, I don’t even need a loofah for application. It’s easy to smooth the lather over wet skin using just your hands. It also rinses off quickly and leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth and supple – no dryness or tight feeling!

In fact, I find it gentle and hydrating enough even for using on my face (which is a big plus, considering that I have naturally dry skin! Once you give it a try, I bet you will be stocking up on it…like I did!

Differin Adapalene Gel 0.1% Retinoid Acne Treatment ($ 11)

This is an acne-fighting retinoid gel (contains 0.1% adapalene) that was previously available only by prescription. It’s the first and only FDA approved over-the-counter topical acne treatment to contain a full prescription-strength retinoid.

I have acne-prone skin so this product has been a great addition to my skincare routine…and a little goes a long way! It’s easily available at drugstores like Walgreens and Target.

Clinique Pep-Start Daily UV Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 50 ($ 19.50)

Sunscreen that doesn’t feel like a sunscreen! This fragrance-free SPF has a gentle mix of mineral sunscreen actives (zinc oxide and titanium dioxide) to protect against UVA/UVB rays. I love how it has such a lightweight feel with a sheer tint that perks up my skin and there’s no white cast to worry about!
