Best Liquid Highlighter – The Body Shop Drops of Glow
This pearlised one is a little too light for me so I should have gotten the more golden option. Still a great product though!
Runner up Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Filter. Shite as BB cream or sheer foundation but amazing as a highlighter.
Best Hair Dye – Manic Panic (Pretty Flamingo)
The choice of colours are amazing, the consistency is nice and thick so easy to apply and it’s really conditioning. It can last up to six months if you gently wash your hair every 7 – 14 days or it can be nearly washed out after around 5 washes with stronger shampoo.
Runner up – Nature Tint. Lasts forever but too runny and messy to apply easily.
Best Lipstick/Gloss/Balm – The Body Shop, Colour Crush Lipstick (Luanda Peony)
This glides on easily, has a very subtle and flattering shimmer, huge colour payoff and it moisturises!
Runner up – Charlotte Tilbury Lip Plumping Gloss. Works almost too well!
Best Hair and Body Care Brand – Yaoh! (Coconut and Lime)
Affordable, natural (everything is based around hemp seed oil), it smells heavenly and every product delivers results.
Runner up – Neal’s Yard Remedies. Natural and pampering but too pricey for me.
Best Nail Polish/Care Brand – Ciate (Nail Super Hero)
Affordable, an astounding range of colours, textures and finishes, and nail treatments which actually work.
Runner up – Barry M for very similar reasons.
Best Facial Skincare – The Body Shop (Vitamin C)
This Range is strongly scented of oranges, which I find really refreshing. It’s affordable as a little goes a long way and leaves skin clean, smooth and moisturised immediately and clearer and glowier after around five days.
Runner up – Murad (Age Reform). Incredibly effective and a similar price bracket to TBS these days so this was a tough decision!
Best Everyday Facial Oil – Superdrug own brand
I would describe this as a dry oil as it’s non-greasy and works perfectly under primer and foundation (or at least the one’s I use), or on it’s own for a naturally healthy appearance on any skin type.
Runner up – Weleda. Their facial oils are rich and really nourishing. They all have a very strong (natural) scent and take a while to sink in so best for an overnight treatment.
I’ve covered all of the products and the brands that I have used in 2019. So if there is a category or product missing it’s because I didn’t need or use a new a one of those. Above are some products which I loved but didn’t quite make the ‘best of’.
Have you tried any of these?
