Beauty Products I've Discovered In 2018 So Far

Mid-year beauty favourites 2018


| Beauty Products I've Discovered In 2018 So Far! |

Last year I wrote a post about my favourite beauty products I discovered in the first half of 2017 and seeing as the first half of 2018 is almost over, I thought I'd round up the beauty products I've discovered so far this year.

I got my first Jo Malone fragrance at Christmas time and it's become a firm favourite product in my beauty collection this year. I opted for the Red Roses scent, containing heart notes of red roses with a top note of lemon and a base note of honeycomb, and the concoction forms a fresh rose fragrance with a subtle hint of sweetness. 

Another product that I discovered at Christmas and have been using all year long so far is my Fenty Beauty Match Stix in Yacht Life. This cream blush is a beautiful a pink shade with a golden sheen and the colour is similar to Nars Orgasm and Sleek Rose Gold. I'm not the biggest fan of stick blushers as they tend to move foundation and I find that this one does that when applied straight from the stick, so I like to apply it using my fingers and it applies so beautifully that way.

My best purchase of the year so far was the Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand. This liquid highlighter provides a dewy finish that looks natural (but not subtle) and literally melts seamlessly into the skin. The sponge applicator is probably quite unhygienic, however, it applies the product so easily and it doesn't disrupt my foundation.

A few months ago, I treated myself to some products from Rosie For Autograph and they've featured in my makeup routine a lot since I got them. The Amazing Skin Secret Foundation has been a welcomed addition to my Spring and Summer makeup bag due to the medium coverage which is ideal for my acne flare up but it also has a lightweight formula which is ideal for the warmer weather - there's nothing worse than having that heavy foundation feeling on your skin in the Summer! I've also been enjoying the Cream Eyeshadow Stick in Feline Fox {Review}, a bronze cream eyeshadow that's quick and easy to apply!

My favourite lip product discovery of the year so far is without a doubt the Luna By Lisa Lip Gloss Set {Review}. These lip glosses are more like a glossy lip cream as they're intensely pigmented and they have a thick creamy texture. They're also a little bit longer-lasting than a regular lip gloss and they're by far my favourite lip gloss formula I've tried!

A recent addition to my makeup collection is the Kat Von D Shade & Light Contour Palette* which I received at an event at their counter in Debenhams Henry Street. The event was lovely and I got to try the new brow products (which I'll definitely be ordering within the next few months!) and I also got to learn about all of their products which was really interesting. And ever since, I've been loving the Shade & Light contour palette! I was always intimidated by contour palettes, however, this one is so easy to use, the shades work on my fair complexion and they blend effortlessly. Contouring has become a daily ritual now!

What products have you discovered in 2018 so far?
