This shadow quad is magic. Use the highlight shade all over the lid for everyday, or use all four to get a super glam date night look. These shadows are so blend-able. At just over $50 and how much I used this this year I think this is an awesome buy. A little goes a long way.

I don’t have an image of the inside of this because it is SUPER broken due to me dropping it. Linking it here for you to view. This highlight palette is everything! So gorgeous and works with every skin tone. For under $30 for so many shades I’m blown away.

This duo is magic. I will say that the highlighter is a little more delicate and broke apart more quickly than the bronzer, but I still love it and will be re-purchasing. This bronzer is such a great neutral tone. I use this for all over bronzing and highlighting, but also as a shadow option. This really lightens up your makeup bag when traveling because a little goes a long, long way and is so multipurpose.

This powder is magic! It is so mattifying and doesn’t have talc. The fact that it smells like sweet tarts doesn’t hurt either. This is such a great buy under $20 and will last you several months.

I love this mascara. It was a late 2019 find, but my best mascara find of the year. It gives your lashes a gorgeous fanned out look and doesn’t clump. I accidentally got the waterproof and I know if the waterproof is this good, the regular is going to be amazing.

This powder is so good for undereye brightening, but don’t use too much! A little goes a long way. I take a little and mix it into the pan with the pacifica powder. It creates such a gorgeous lighted effect under your eyes.

Going on year two with my obsession with this concealer. Their shade range is amazing and it truly does last. I truly can’t recommend enough. I use the foundation version everyday for my base as well.

This was a late addition in 2019 and to be honest when it came in PR I thought it would be a dud. They reformulated this line last year and it is FLAWLESS. Especially for drugstore this stuff is so good. If it had a thicker applicator I truly think it would be mentioned more as a dupe for shape tape. I also think the stay power is much better than shape tape.

This is a splurge, but will last you ages! This is my second one and I used the other for 3 years. I love creating natural contour with this before I set it with the Charlotte tilburry and bronze it out. It does work best when you’ve tanned or in the summer when you have a slight bronze glow naturally. I wouldn’t recommend this for super fair complected ladies. Without a subtle tan this will pull orange on you, but otherwise it is perfection.

This shadow is so good for both glam and everyday looks. If you know Stila, you know anything in the shade kitten is gold. This liquid shadow creates the most gorgeous bright eye on any skin tone and holds all day without primer. Love this stuff.

This liner has become my daily tightliner. I rarely wear liquid eyeliner anymore because I think a simple tightline gives me a more natural wide-eyed look. This stuff holds up to itchy eyes and doesn’t transfer under my eyes.

Talk about miracle product. This is something I use once a week to help with texture. I fell in love with Drunk Elephant last year and this is now a holy grail. I notice if I miss a week without using.

*Note* if you haven’t had a peel done before or used an at home peel, the tingle upon application is normal. Don’t freak out and give it a minute to settle down and you will be fine.

Pixi is a ride or die brand for me. I’m so thankful that they are so generous with PR, because I use the heck out of this stuff. This toner truly does help with the overall appearance of your skin and kind of kickstarts your skincare routine. So good and under $20.

This entire line was a major stand out for 2019 for me. This is the day cream and I love the feeling it gives my skin. I notice much more bouncy, healthy texture when I’m religiously using this.

If you remember me talking about Colleen Rothschild (here), you’ll remember how much I love her cleansing balm. I still do, but I also love this one. I notice a big difference between the two though. This one has a more nourishing after feel. You can truly tell this is a collagen product even just from the texture. With the Colleen Rothschild you feel more of a detox, deep clean feeling. Both get it all off and leave you feeling clean and ready for the rest of your skincare routine, but this one leaves your skin feeling replenished and I love that.

This is an old love that I re-kindled in 2019. This serum totally changes how your skin looks and feels instantly after you apply. While it’s made of pumpkin, it still feels very citric and gives your skin the wakeup it needs. Everyone needs a vitamin C serum in their life.

If your skin is feeling fragile, this is for you. I love using this when my skin feels tired and overworked. Something about the polypeptides help rebuild the surface layer of your skin and below to give a plumper, more full feeling to your skin. Works really well under makeup because it isn’t super heavy. Did you also know that Drunk Elephant is a clean beauty brand?

I discovered this through a partnership, but truly fell in LOVE with this cleanser. I love all three formulas, but the nourishing is my favorite. Anything with manuka honey is amazing for your skin. I absolutely love how my skin feels when I use this. It’s jelly texture may seem weird to you at first, but it lathers up beautifully and gets everything off. At under $10 this is a best buy. It also happens to be an Allure Beauty winner and is cruelty free. You can’t beat that.

One of my best finds of the year. This is my favorite sunless tanner of all time. I had been going back and forth between the Loving Tan and a few others and they were all either too olive and pulled green on me, or too red and made me look maroon. This one is equal parts both. If you are more neutral complected I really think you will love this. The texture is creamy like loving tan without all the redness and it blends like a dream. It’s also $10 cheaper and has more in the container. Win-win!

This shampoo is a little random. I have to say I’ve never used a shampoo that came in a tub, but this saved me when I started getting eczema at the end of the year. It helps remove product buildup, deals with flakes, is color safe, and really does help revive your scalp. A must-have for anyone who deals with dry scalp and eczema around their hairline.

This dry shampoo was a late add to my hair routine, but took the place of another IGK product, listed below. I needed something that wasn’t quite so intense and fell in love with this immediately. The strongest version was drying out my scalp and this honestly is exactly the same product with a different scent and slightly less aggressive. I love the scent and the texture and volume it gives my hair. If you have semi oily hair this is for you. If you’re super oily get the one below and if you are more in the normal range I would go with this one.

As I mentioned above I had fallen in love with this dry shampoo and then realized it was triggering my eczema. I highly recommend this if you are super oily or to use on day 4 hair, otherwise I think it could be too intense for you. I love IGK.

This was a new to me brand in 2019. I fell in love with two of their masks when they sent them over and have been using them intermittently once a week. This one is great for those of us who love dry shampoo. It helps deal with that product buildup and the damage it can cause to the cuticle. I love the clean tingle it gives your scalp. These are pricy, but worth it and available on Prime.

If heat styling has left your hair feeling dry and damaged this is for you. This product not only helps repair split ends, but replenishes your hair and helps repair the damage that comes with heat styling. This will help to seal the cuticle and combat frizz.

This is a new favorite of mine because I hate the feeling of hairspray, but need the control for flyaways and to hold curl. This is so good. It smells amazing, is under $20, and doesn’t have that sticky feel a lot of hairsprays can have.

For blondes who are cool or neutral toned, purple shampoo is a necessity. I’ve tried several and never got the true tone payoff I wanted to keep the brass at bay. This does the trick. I use this once a week ( I wash twice a week) and doing so has brought my color back to life between appointments. With the shadow root Ashlond at Whitney Evans give me and using this I never feel desperate for color when I go into my appointment. I absolutely love that.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ve heard of Billie. I fell in love with this last summer. For one, it eliminates the need to go out and buy razors because they ship straight to you. Second, these things WORK honey! I’ve never had a smoother shave and finally no razor burn even without shaving cream. I have these autoshipped with 4 new replacements every 8 weeks and I’m good to go. You won’t regret trying this and you’ll be saving money. These razors are half the cost of the ones at the drug store.

I’ve been on the hunt for a new signature scent. After hunting high and low I found this one. Apparently a lot of the notoriety comes from it being sold in Epcot at the Netherlands. I’ve never smelt a lighter, cleaner scent that also translates super feminine when it’s on. Hard to explain, but I truly think you’ll love it. This one is also supposed to be cleaner than other perfumes which I appreciate.

I hope you guys enjoyed this best of beauty 2019 post. As you can see, these are products that I have used throughout the year because they are showing their wear. I don’t buy a ton of beauty since partnerships and PR send a lot to my doorstep. They things I do head out and buy and repurchase are things I research, try for weeks before sharing, and put a lot of thought into before sharing. As always, I only share products as part of partnerships with brands I love and products I’ve actually tried and enjoy.

Let me know what other beauty content you want to see in 2020. I’m really pumped to start hitting this topic more heavily.
