2019 Favorites

It’s the last post of the year. It’s time for my 2019 favorites! I actually struggled with this one a bit because I didn’t purchase much throughout the year. I feel like I’ve said that a lot throughout my last few posts, but it’s true. I’m really trying to make an effort to use what I have. I did cave on some releases, but I didn’t really splurge. But going through my drawer I can see that I certainly did have some favorites.

I’m not sure if I ever talked about my process. It changes a little every year. I have a favorites drawer in my vanity. It’s the 3rd drawer down. Any time I have a favorite I place it in there. Whenever I’m in a rush and need to do a quick look I reach into the 3rd drawer. At the end of the year I clean it out and start fresh in the beginning of the year. Then I go through my posts for the year and match them up with whatever is in my drawer to create my roundup post. I’d like to note that I do keep some favorites from the previous years in my drawer because they have become staples. However, I won’t mention them again because it would be boring to mention the same products year after year.

Emile Cordon Miracle Lip Balm

Emile Cordon Miracle Lip Balm
The first on the list is the Emile Cordon Miracle Lip Balm. I’ve especially been loving Charlotte. I’ve reached for it quite a bit this year. I even put a decent dent in it. It’s the prettiest shade of red, so moisturizing and it smells amazing!

IT Cosmetics Your Desert Island Must Haves

IT Cosmetics Your Desert Island Must Haves
Out of this trio of brushes I’ve been using the Highlight Brush pretty much every time I do my makeup. I absolutely love it! It’s incredibly soft and applies just the right amount of product for me. I even use the water bottle.

Sugarpill Liquid Lip Color in Hijinx

Sugarpill Liquid Lip Color in Hijinx
After trying and loving Trinket, I was so excited to see even more sparkle infused matte shades being released. Hijinx was definitely my favorite of the year. Although I’m still eying the Pumpkin Spice 2. I still have to try that one. But Hijinx is my favorite this year.

Smile Brilliant cariPRO Electric Toothbrush

Smile Brilliant cariPRO Electric Toothbrush
Shortly after receiving the Smile Brilliant cariPRO Electric Toothbrush, I threw out my old electric toothbrush. This one is so much better in so many different ways. It’s not as bulky, the brush heads are so much cheaper, it has a sensitive setting, and it holds a charge for a ridiculously long time! I only have to charge it about once a month. It could probably go longer if I let it. Don’t forget to use my code midwestglam20 for 20% off!

ColourPop Pressed Powder Shadow Palette in It’s My Pleasure

ColourPop Pressed Powder Shadow Palette in It’s My Pleasure
Of course this palette made it to my favorites drawer! It’s purple. It contains some of the prettiest jewel toned shades ever. The shadows applied and blended beautifully. It’s the perfect palette for people who love purple.

Pixi Beauty Skintreats

Pixi Beauty DetoxifEYE
I’m really digging the Pixi Beauty DetoxifEYE eye patches. At least once a week I pop these on myself and my husband. I love the cooling sensation. It’s so refreshing. They always leave my eyes looking brighter and more awake. I also love that they are gentle enough on my sensitive skin. The husband also gives them two thumbs up.

Caudalie Grape Water

Caudalie Grape Water
The Caudalie Grape Water has quickly become a favorite. I buy so many of these throughout the year. I use it as a toner of sorts spraying it on after cleansing and just before applying moisturizer. I also use it to help calm down rosacea flareups. I also use it to spray my guys down in passing haha! They love the refreshing feeling. So do I!

Derma Thereal Overnight Rejuvenation Cream (20 MG)

Derma Thereal Overnight Rejuvenation Cream (20 MG)
The Derma Thereal Overnight Rejuvenation Cream is easily my favorite night cream. It only contains about 20 MG of CBD which isn’t much, but I’m convinced that it does something. My skin is left looking and feeling so hydrated. It helps tame my redness and doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin. I appreciate that it doesn’t contain fragrance. I do detect a light powdery scent, but it’s so not bothersome. In fact I really like it. I can’t help but smell it every time I go to apply it. It has a nice light, airy texture. I hope this formula never changes because it’s seriously wonderful. I’m definitely planning to try more from the brand. The good thing is since it’s a local brand I can find it locally.

Charlotte Tilbury

Full Fat Lashes in Glossy Black
I haven’t been able to put this mascara down since receiving it. It’s the most lightweight mascara I’ve ever used. I would have to say this is my favorite mascara of the year. Next to the Sephora Collection LashCraft of course.

lilah b.

Divine Duo Lip & Cheek in b. memorable
I have yet to try the lilah b. Divine Duo Lip & Cheek in b. memorable on my cheeks. But it is by far my most favorite lip shade of the year! It’s a gorgeous shade and it feels so comfortable on my lips. I hate that it’s so pricey for just a little bit of product, but I truly do love it.

Have you tried any of these products? What are some of your favorites from this year?

*I received some of these products complimentary. I was not paid or compensated in any way to write this post. All opinions are completely my own.

    I can’t live without lip balm in the winter, but I normally just buy whatever is available at the supermarket. Yours looks much nicer and probably smells better too!

  9. I have to say that you have a very interesting list of favourites. I am very curious about the grape water. The mascara from Charlotte Tilbury sounds like something I would like to try. Those eye patches are also being added to my shortlist.
