2016 Beauty Favorites and Fails

Hi Bellas,

It's been a crazy year.  I've also gone through lots and lots of new products.  It's been a while since I've done a favorites video so I decided to go out with a bang and do a comprehensive 2016 video featuring my favorites and the fails.  Check it out!

Check out the video!

One of the best personal products is this stick on, strapless bra.  It's comfy, and it actually lifts and adds some extra oomph.  Love love this bra.  I got mine on amazon prime where I get all my goodies.

This IT cosmetics You Sculpted contour palette was really slept on.  I love the deepness of the contour colors.  I use it all the time.

This palette came later in the year but I was just really impressed by the quality of the shadows in this Estee Edit Gritty and Glow Palette.  The colors are also beautiful, pushing me out of my neutral comfort zone.

I'm a big fan of this lipstick - the Makeup For Ever Artist Rouge Mat.  This color, M401 Hot Red is matte, and a power red.  I just feel good wearing it.  The bullet shaped lipstick also applies so precise.  Though this is a matte, I felt comfortable wearing it all day and it really does last.

These were my favorite mascaras of the year.  The Make Up For Ever Excessive Lash was love at first swipe - it coated my itty bitty lashes so well.  The IT Superhero was also a win - I love the big brush and formula.

And my fails for the year:
Maybelline brow drama - too waxy and big for filling in brows
Estee Edit Jumbo Liquid liner - too big, and not opaque enough for lining eyes
Body Shop Shade Adjustor - the color is too cool toned, it makes your foundation look gray
Paddle Foundation Brush - this brush type lacks a ferrule to pinch in the bristles; the glued bristles simply fall off

Here's to a new year of many more product favorites and fails, stay tuned!
