2016 Makeup Favourites || Hourglass, L'Oreal, Max Factor and MORE!

It's that time of the year again when we round-up our most reached for beauty products of the year. I haven't got too many this year and they are all new products to me. Some products from last years favourites were reached for a lot over the past twelve months but I think these products were my absolute favourites out of my makeup collection.

I am going to start with face makeup first. The L'Oreal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation (REVIEW) has been my most reached for face product of the year. It is such a gorgeous lightweight, buildable product that makes it perfect to wear when you don't want to wear too much makeup but feel like you need a base product. And another really good thing about this product is that it has a shade pale enough, even for me!!

I have also been reaching for the Seventeen Stay Time Concealer (REVIEW) a lot this year. This has quickly become my favourite concealer because 1. it is pale enough for me, and 2. it is a really lovely consistency so I can use it under my eyes without it feeling heavy and cakey. And it is also really cheap which is another bonus!

I couldn't do this favourites without mentioning the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Palette (REVIEW) which I think might be my favourite product of 2016. I received this for Christmas 2015 and since then I haven't stopped using this. It is the perfect palette with 3 highlighters/setting powders, 2 blush shades and 1 bronzer. They all look gorgeous on the skin and also last really well. I love this palette so much that I asked for the new version of it for Christmas this year and I can't wait to use it.

The final face product is the Topshop Glow Pots in Gleam and Polished (REVIEW). I used these all of the time in the summer, especially when I was on holiday as they give your skin the perfect dewy highlight which you can make more intense the more product you apply.

Onto eye products now and I only have two products to mention. First one is the YSL Babydoll Mascara. I received this as a birthday present from one of my best friends and I haven't stopped using it since then. It lengthens and adds volume to my lashes which is exactly what I want in a mascara.

The second product is the Max Factor Masterpiece Nude Palette in Cappuccino Nudes. Hands down my favourite eyeshadow palette of all time. The shadows are really pigmented and are really buttery so apply and blend really well. The shades are also my perfect eyeshadow colours, I honestly cannot fault this palette!

For lips, the only stand out product from this year for me is the Clinique Pop Lip Colour in Nude Pop. This is a lovely nude shade which I love for both day and night and has definitely been my most reached for lip product of the year.

The only other product that I wanted to mention is the fragrance I have been wearing all of the time which is Jo Malone Peony and Blush Suede. I received this as a gift last Christmas and I have worn it pretty much everyday. It is such a stunning scent and I will definitely buy the big bottle once this one runs out!

What have been your favourite products from 2016?
