As 2017 approaches, we can’t help thinking about everything that happened in 2016; the good, the bad and the ugly. That also includes new beauty products you tried this past year. Some may have exceeded your expectations, some may have disappointed you, then there are those that you fell in love with instantly and haven’t stopped using since. Tonight, in honor of New Year’s Eve, I wanted to share with you my ~17 in 2017~ top beauty picks you need to try in the new year. Check them out below!
One of my favorite dry shampoos! Leaves my hair looking so fresh and so clean, clean without all the extra product fallout of other dry shampoos.
Perfect for my mixed chicks! Being half African American and half Filipino, my hair is always changing its mood, but Miss Jessie’s multicultural curl cream always keeps it in check and leaves my curls in perfect shape.
A moisturizer that not only smells amazing, but has the most lightweight application ever. So in love with the fact that it incorporates kale to give you a fresh glow.
Not only does this detangle your hair in just a few brushes, but it also prevents hair fallout and is virtually pain free.
I’ll never use another brush shampoo again after trying this. Just one or two sprays on your brushes and it cleans every inch of dirt and makeup built up in them.
I don’t blowout or straighten my hair often to keep my curls healthy and alive, but when I do, this product never fails me. Spread a dime-sized amount throughout your hair and just like that you’re protected from any heat you throw at your locks.
If you love a matte makeup look, this primer is for you. It’s a little on the heavy side, so be mindful of that. But it certainly blocks all your pores and leaves your skin looking smoother than ever.
This night serum is a little on the pricey side, but it’s worth it if you’re looking for results. I’ve been using this for a month now and I can already tell a huge difference in the tone and texture of my skin. For my girls who don’t react well to oils, I’d shy away from this as it has an extremely oily base.
After using this serum for three months, I can 100 percent say this is the way to go if your problem area is your lashes. I have naturally short and thin lashes, so this was heaven sent. It made my lashes thicker and more luscious than I could have imagined. Use nightly for best results!
I included this polish because I thought it was the perfect matte polish for a fresh start in the new year. If you love lilacs and violets, but shy away from deep purples, this is the color for you! It also has a gorgeous matte finish.
This is the perfect deodorant for when you need a quick refresher or are constantly on the go and don’t want to worry about your deodorant opening in your bag and getting EVERYWHERE.
This lotion not only smells so good, but blends into your skin like a glove! Super lightweight and leaves your skin feeling soft and supple.
Another one for my matte ladies! No exaggeration, this spray sets your makeup all day long and leaves your skin looking pore-free and absolutely glowing.
This versatile brush is perfect for everything from applying foundation, to blending contour. Unlike many other brushes, it blends your makeup into your skin instead of just sitting it right on top. A great alternative to a beauty blender in my opinion.
I love this palette for days when I’m too lazy to bust out a separate blush, highlighter, etc. It’s also great for traveling, since everything you need is in such a convenient package. The colors are great, and can work for many different skin tones.
I don’t wear lipstick often, but ever since I found out about this baby I’ve definitely had a reason to. The colors are very natural and nude, and feel super soft on your lips, instead of drying.
While Dior anything might be a bit of a splurge, if you’ve been good this year why not treat yourself?! 😉 The colors are both easy to blend with other palettes and look great standing on their own.
