Hope you are all enjoying the festive season. 2016 was the year I started trying different makeup products and it will be always a special year. With 2016 coming to an end soon, I thought of sharing my 10 favourite makeup products of 2016. Most of the products were launched in 2016, while a few were launched before but it had become my favourite this year. So let’s get started…
1. Maybelline Fit Me Foundation
Maybelline Fit Me foundation is a medium to full coverage foundation which lasts for nearly 5 to 6 hours on my skin. It creates a perfect base for the makeup and also gives an air brushed effect. This is an apt foundation for weddings and special occassions.
2. Pond’s BB Cream
This is my recent favourite as I have always been a fan of Maybelline Clear Glow BB cream. This matches my skin tone perfectly and gives a natural glow. I like the fact that it is quite moisturising and is budget friendly. This has now become my everyday BB cream.
3. Miss Claire Concealer
I’m so glad that I got to know this concealer through some makeup youtubers. This is a perfect concealer which is affordable yet works amazingly. On days when I don’t want my under eyes area to look tired or dark, I apply just one coat and this works like magic. This concealer is a must try if you are looking for one.
4. Plum Kajal
Plum kajal is a cruelty free product which is highly pigmented. It is a gel eye liner in the form of a kajal pencil. I wear this on special occssions when I prefer dark kohled eyes. It is water proof and also smudge proof.
5. PAC Pen Eyeliner
This is my recent favourite and has become my everyday eye liner. It is pigmented, doesn’t tug, lasts long and has a little glossy effect which I absolutely love. Drawing winged eye liners are a task as I have hooded eyes. But this pen eye liner makes it super easy.
6. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream - Amsterdam
NYX soft matte lip creams are one of the best lip creams available in the market. The shade Amsterdam is a tomato red which is neither too bright nor subtle and is suitable for Indian skin tones. It is transfer proof and lasts longer.
7. Elle 18 Color Pops Matte Lipstick – Prom Pink
This is a creamy matte lipstick which doesn’t dry your lips and lasts for 4 to 5 hours. It is worth the price and has a wide range of shades. Prom Pink is my favourite lip stick shade and is perfect for every day wear.
8. Maybelline Color Show Creamy Matte Lipcolor – Flaming Fuschia
I find Maybelline’s color show range better than their 12 hr lip stick range. It is because this is highly pigmented, doesn’t dry out the lips and is very affordable. Flaming Fuschia is apt for parties or when you want to feel like barbie doll.
9. Maybelline Dream Touch Blush
This was launched way back but I tried it and fell in love with this blush this year. This is a cream blush which has slight shimmer and looks natural. This blush gives an instant fresh and flushed look to my face.
10. Makeup Revolution Redemption Palette Iconic 2
This palette has 12 shades which comprises of golds, coppers, greys, browns and rose golds. Most of the shades are shimmery and are quite pigmented. This earthy toned palette is definitely better than the Maybelline Nudes palette and helps in creating different shades of smokey eyes.
