In 2017 I really expanded my makeup collection and tried lots more from some brands that have now become favourites of mine, including Tarte, Becca, Huda Beauty, Jouer and many more. Next year there are a number of brands I have tried a few bits from that I need to try more from and others on my radar that I still need to try products from.

This brand is a very recent addition to my collection but I have already been wowed by the products, they are currently available on QVC and now their own website. So far I have tried their CC Cream and its so lovely and light on the skin but it really covers up everything, this is definitely going to be my go to base for the summer months. I also got a mini freebie of their Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer and that is amazing, I really struggle with dark circles and it eliminates them completely. Their Celebration Foundation was also on sale in Selfridges recently so I picked it up and i'm pretty impressed, I lightly dust is on after applying my foundation and it sets it all in place nicely. This year I want to try more face products and pick up a full size of their concealer.

I finally got some Fenty Beauty this Christmas when I received some bits as presents. The Match Stix Trio was on my list to try as I want to get back more into contouring my face and in this trio you get everything you need for that. I also got the Trophy Wife Highlighter, it's a really intense yellow gold highlight so nothing too subtle but I just loved how different it was to everything else I owned. This year I am looking to try the foundation and the new lipsticks.

I have tried a couple of bits from the skincare and makeup range but there is already so much more I want to try and especially their makeup range. In this years sales I picked up the ItsEyeTime Palette and it's such a lovely collection of natural earthy tones and the formula is so nice to apply. I also got the Glow-y Powders at half price and I love them for a dewy glow on the skin. This year I definitely want to try the liquid lipsticks and concealer.

I first tried Cover FX this summer with their Illuminating Setting Spray and it has honestly changed up my makeup and made it look so glowing but also locking it all in place with it's light mist. Finally this Christmas I got a mini set of their liquid highlighters and they are so pretty and literally glow so much on the skin. This year I'm looking to try their foundation, primer and makeup brushes.

If you have read my blog before you will see that I have tried a lot of the Zoeva brushes and i'm a big fan but I haven't tried much from their makeup range. I recently ordered the Strobe Gel and it's such an interesting formula but gives a really subtle glow to the skin and im hoping it will be a good dupe for the new Farsali Gel Highlighter. I am also a fan of the Zoeva eyeshadow palettes and Caramel Melange is such a classic warm toned palette and one I will use over and over. This year I definitely want to try their lip products, face palettes and more of the eyeshadow palettes.

I hadn't really heard of this brand until late this year and now i've seen quite a few bloggers rave about the products. One of the main ones everyone seemed to love was their No Poreblem Primer so I just had to get it, the primer really smoothes over my skin to create the perfect base for my foundation application. I now have a long list of other products to try this year and that includes the Feel Like Honey Moon Skin Base, Toc Toc Toning Capsule Base, Flawless Skin Top Coat and Stretchex Stretch Lash Effect Mascara.

What brands do you want to try more from this year?



  1. I'm also a massive fan of Zoeva for their brushes, but haven't tried much else of their range. I have heard many good things about their blushes and their eyeshadows!

  7. Can I ask you, what coulour of It cosmetics CC cream do you have? I dont know if I should get fair or light, there seems to be quite a big difference.

  8. I definitely want to try It Cosmetics this year as they seem to have amazing products! I love Cover FX they have lovely products - their liquid bronzer is stunning and obviously the illuminating drops are to die for! xx
