Best of Beauty Makeup Skincare Perfume 2017


Urban Decay De-Slick Complexion Primer Benefit The POREfessional Pearl Primer BareMinerals BarePRO Liquid Foundation

1. Urban Decay De-Slick Complexion Primer ($38 CAD, click here to buy it)
This oil-free primer is specifically formulated to control oils and it really works : My skin is matte for more than 4 hours! It's a finicky product, but it's great for oily skin when you know how to use it. One pump is all I need and I only apply it on my T-zone. I find that it works best with luminous or semi-matte foundations, and if I apply my foundation with a damp Beautyblender.

2. Benefit The POREfessional Pearl Primer ($42 CAD, click here to buy it)
This primer instantly minimize pores, blur fine lines and has a slightly radiant matte finish. If your skin is normal to dry and the original POREfessional was too drying for you, I think you would love this new version! I still love it for my oily skin, though!

3. BareMinerals BarePRO Liquid Foundation ($42 CAD, click here to buy it)
This foundation is amazing for oily skin, one of the best I've tested out! It has a beautiful satin matte finish (not flat matte) and provides medium to full coverage. It lasts 12 hours on me and controls oils remarkably well, even without a primer!

Bourjois Healthy Mix Anti-Fatigue Foundation NARS Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder BareMinerals Invisible Bronze Powder Bronzer in Tan

4. Bourjois Healthy Mix Anti-Fatigue Foundation ($35 CAD, click here to buy it)
This vitamin enriched foundation is beautiful on the skin! It provides light to medium coverage, but I can apply a second layer if I prefer medium coverage, and it never look cakey. My skin is very oily and it wore well for 8 hours, although I would recommend to use a mattifying primer with it.

5. NARS Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder ($46 CAD, click here to buy it)
This is THE best undereye setting powder I've ever tried! It doesn't look chalky and doesn't make my undereye look dry or cakey. It's expensive, but the jar last a really long time because you only need a tiny amount of product!

6. BareMinerals Invisible Bronze Powder Bronzer in Tan ($35 CAD, click here to buy it)
This bronzing powder is perfect! The finish is slightly luminous (not glittery) and the shade 'Tan' is a beautiful cool brown with a subtle pink undertone. The formula is easy to blend and doesn't look streaky. I'm in love with this powder!

Vichy Teint Ideal Pure Light Face Roll-On Make Up For Ever Artist Face Color Trio Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Fix

7. Vichy Teint Ideal Pure Light Face Roll-On ($27 CAD, click here to buy it)
This liquid highlighter is beyond gorgeous, the glow it gives my skin is unreal! It's a translucent pearly white shade, so it looks amazing on super fair skin tones! (but it looks good on medium to tan complexions too) The formula is easy to apply (I like to blend it with my fingertips) and last all day.

8. Make Up For Ever Artist Face Color Trio ($56 CAD, click here to buy them)
The Artist Face Color Powders are nicely pigmented, last all day, and they blend out beautifully without too much effort. The blushes and the highlighters are gorgeous, I love the shades H102, H106, B302, B500 and S310! Also, you can customize your own Artist Face Color palette!

9. Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Fix ($26 CAD, click here to buy it)
I have oily eyelids and my makeup lasts all day with this primer! This new shade (a matte yellow beige) is more opaque than the original formula, so it can cover redness and imperfections as well.  This shade was a limited edition, but you can still order it from Urbandecay.ca and Ulta.

TheBalm Batter Up Eyeshadow Sticks Benefit Ka-Brow! Cream-Gel Brow Color Esqido False Eyelashes

16. TheBalm Batter Up Eyeshadow Sticks ($17 US, click here to buy them)
These eyeshadow sticks are very creamy and have great color payoff. I like how the formula doesn't dry too fast, it gives me plenty of time to blend it! I've tested them out without a primer and they didn't crease or fade! They are waterproof and smudgeproof too, even on my oily lids. Out of all the shades, I love Shutout, Curveball and Dugout the most.

17. Benefit Ka-Brow! Cream-Gel Brow Color ($32 CAD, click here to buy it)
I bought this product a while ago, and I'm not sure why I waited so long to try it because it's awesome! My brows are very sparse so I like to draw tiny hair-like strokes, and this cream-gel is perfect for that. The formula is creamy but not too greasy, and I love the super precise brush too!

18. Esqido False Eyelashes ($32 US, click here to buy them)
Esqido is one of my favorite false lashes brand! I really love their Noire collection, the multi-curl effect is stunning. The lashes are very fluffy and they look amazing on the eye! My favorites? Mystic, Black Magic and Midnight Symphony!

19. NARS Powermatte Lip Pigments ($34 CAD, click here to buy them)

20. MAC Liptensity Lip Pencils ($24 CAD, click here to buy them)
I'm very pleased with these new retractable lip pencils, I can draw a very sharp line with the angled tip! The formula is creamy, glides effortlessly on the skin, and all of the shades are very pigmented. Hands down the best lip pencils I've tested out this year! If I had to choose, my top 5 would be : La Sultana, Fresh Clay, Dionysus, Double Fudge and Honey Pecan.

21. Make Up For Ever Artist Liquid Matte Lip Colors ($25 CAD, click here to buy them)
There's 15* shades to choose from, and they are all very pigmented! The formula dries down to a matte finish and once it sets, it doesn't budge or smudge. A big thumbs-up to Make Up For Ever because this formula is fabulous! *UPDATE : They just added 6 new shades to the range!!
