Beauty Products I've Discovered In 2017 So Far

2017 Beauty Discoveries

| Beauty Products I've Discovered In 2017 So Far! |

It's no secret that I love trialing and testing new products, and one might say new launches are my weakness. We're in the seventh month of the year already and I've discovered some new products that recently launched onto the market as well as some products that have been around for a while that I've been meaning to try for ages. Let's chat about the products I've discovered in the first half of 2017....

For Christmas last year I got a voucher for Brown Thomas and I had my eye on a Charlotte Tilbury blush for a long time so I decided to spend it on that. I opted for the shade 'Sex On Fire' which is a gorgeous a deep mauve shade. It's more of a wintery option in my opinion but I'm already getting excited to pair it with some deep Autumnal hues in a few months! 

Another Charlotte Tilbury product that I couldn't resist was the Eyes To Mesmerise in Jean. The dreamy champagne hue is ideal for a quick swipe over the lids either on its own or with a matte brown in the crease. The creamy formula makes it easy to blend out and it provides a nice sheen to the lids, which is perfect for a fresh natural everyday look.

The bargain of the year {or even the century!} was the Bronze & Glow palette. This bad boy retails for €65 but thanks to the heads up from Francisca I managed to bag it at €36!! Inside the dreamy rose-gold packaging is the perfect bronzer and highlighter for everyday wear. 

2017 has certainly been the year of Charlotte Tilbury as I discovered yet another one of her beautiful products. I feel like I've had the Bitch Perfect lipstick {Review} for years because it has already become a classic staple in my makeup collection that I always gravitate towards. The warm peachy pink shade is easy to wear and I love the creamy satin formula.

Mac Double Gleam highlighter

I was searching through my archives recently for post inspiration and I realised that I've never spoken about the Mac Extra Dimension highlighter in Double Gleam and I don't know how I managed that because I'm loving it! I would describe it as a champagne shade with a white pearlescent undertone so I find that it looks a little bit paler on my skin tone than a traditional champagne shade but not quite as white as an icy white shade. It just sits somewhere in the middle. It has a gorgeous reflective finish that will add a statement to your makeup look.

I mentioned in last month's favourites that I stopped biting my nails and I've been treating myself to some new Essie polishes to keep me motivated to look after them. I picked up the shade In Stitches a few months ago before I stopped biting my nails but I've only started using it properly since June. It's a hard shade to describe, it's like a deep red-pink shade with a hint of brown. Another shade I picked up more recently is Eternal Optimist which is a beautiful nude pink shade.  

The Nars Unfiltered Cheek palette was my best purchase of the year so far! The palette has five different blush shades and one of their best-selling highlighters. Like all Nars blushers, the quality is great, they look beautiful on the skin and they wear well throughout the day. What I love about the palette is that it has a wide range of shades and finishes so you have something to suit every occasion, every makeup look and every season. 

I haven't tried too many new base products this year, I seem to be sticking to what I know in that department. However, I did purchase the L.A. Girl Pro Conceal which has been my most used concealer so far this year. It costs a mere €5.80 which is a pretty good price for an excellent concealer! It has a medium-full coverage, it's non-drying and it has lightweight creamy texture so I find that I need to set it well or it can cause slight creasing. But once I've set it correctly it lasts all day!
