A trip down memory lane

Looking back at 2019, l can say that there were lots of hits! Whether it be new products, services or newfound trends..2019 proved to be a year of learning. Join me as I take a stroll down memory lane and recap “The Best of the Best” of 2019.

In the beginning

January proved to be a month of new beginnings and fresh starts. With so many New products making their way onto the beauty scene, it was like a Flood of cosmetics consumers confusion (try saying that three times fast).

But, One Brand released an amazing product that seriously changed my makeup routine. In January 2019, FENTY BEAUTY released their stand alone PRO FILT’R INSTANT RETOUCH CONCEALER in an epic 50 Shades! Which was a step up from her Original Complexion Launch back in 2017 with her PRO FILT’R SOFT MATTE LONGWEAR FOUNDATION which released 40 Shades. Regardless, Rhianna was doing big things in the Beauty Industry. At the time of her Brand Launch of FENTY BEAUTY, there was not a Brand on the Market that could compare nor compete with her 40 Shade Complexion Line.

The Concealer that changed my year was the FENTY BEAUTY PRO FILT’R INSTANT RETOUCH CONCEALER. It created such soft, flawless results and honestly made it look almost like there was a “Filter” on my skin. I am a sucker for shade 240 (for medium skin with neutral undertones) and have not went without it in my collection since it’s release. Have you tried the FENTY BEAUTY PRO FILT’R INSTANT RETOUCH CONCEALER?

COLOUR ME GORGEOUS

Moving onto February 2019 with a Makeup artist dream launch of COLOURPOP’S BFF LIQUID LINERS. These amazing little Gems have an ultra fine felt-tip and pigmentation like no other! They’re waterptoof, smudge proof and are long wearing & Super easy to work with. Regardless if you are a Professional MUA or just an everyday makeup lover like me, you are no doubt going to fall head over heels for the BFF LIQUID LINERS. AVAILABLE IN 7 SHADES/$8.00 each

March 2019 came and went but not before the release of the ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS RIVIERA PALETTE. This Palette satisfied every Spring craving I had. Even though the weather was still cold, the RIVERA PALETTE was causing a major heat wave of excitement in the Beauty community. I loved the smooth, intense formula of this Palette and I feel they did everything right with it. /ABH /14 pans Matte & Metallic-$45.00

In April 2018, TARTE COSMETICS delivered the Beauty Community an April Fool’s joke that no one would ever forget.

The “ICY BETCH” Palette was the only Palette that everyone was talking about at that time. Full of blue and greens and with shade names that was totally out of Tarte Cosmetics “norm”. Everyone was going crazy for this Palette that didn’t exist. Not to mention that everyone was also extremely salty that they had been duped. The Beauty scene had spoken… and Tarte listened.

Exactly one year to the Day, TARTE COSMETICS indeed released their own VERY REAL version of the “ICY BETCH” Palette. It was a bit different than the 2018 April Fool’s version, but still very beautiful and special in its own way. It included a Stunning highlight and had a more slim, chic design compared to TARTE’S usual style. I created so many fun looks with this Palette and am so happy that I got it when I did. *Unfortunately, The ‘ICY BETCH’ palette is no longer AVAILABLE at this time. But looking forward to when TARTE brings it back….or something even Better.

WRAP UP

Hope you felt a bit of nostalgia and had a fabulous time as you joined me and our walk down memory lane. Even though we are quickly approaching another year (seriously?), let’s keep our fingers crossed, an open mind and positive vibes all around. Stay safe and until next time…take care friends.
