Top 10 Products of 2017 | MAKEUP

Since I’ve been on a low buy all of 2017, I didn’t get to discover a lot of new products. I still managed to find some extraordinary creations that have become Holy Grail products. Let’s say goodbye to 2017 with my “Top 10 Beauty Products”!

🐰 = Cruelty-Free


Marc Jacobs Beauty Genius Gel Supercharged Oil Free Foundation 🐰

Top 10 Products of 2017 | MAKEUP

I would have liked to come upon this “Genius” foundation way before. Unfortunately, the brand is discontinuing it for reasons that I don’t understand. Just in case, I bought four but I’m kicking myself for not buying at least 1 more when it went on sale! It’s the best foundation I’ve ever tried period… A dry skin girl’s dream.

Anyone knows of a good dupe??? Help a very sad girl please…


MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Palette Volume 4 – Shadows

Top 10 Products of 2017 | MAKEUP

Need an affordable (it’s been in Sephora’s sale section forever) all MATTE neutral palette for your everyday look? Well, go for MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Palette Volume 4 – Shadows. These matte shadows blend beautifully and stay put all day when using a good eyeshadow primer. MUFE matte formula is amongst the very best on the market and this little number is a sure winner.


Coola Daydream Mineral Primer SPF 30 🐰

Top 10 Products of 2017 | MAKEUP

It’s funny how this little gem came into my life: BeardMan was in Arizona for work and I obviously asked him to go to the nearby Sephora to get a specific primer with sunscreen (and of course, some other stuff). Unfortunately, it was not available at this location and he knows not to come back empty-handed, so he asked a girl for something similar and she suggested him Coola’s Daydream Mineral Primer SPF 30. Sure enough, I’m totally crazy about this primer/sunscreen. The only downfall is that it contains micro glitters that makes it unwearable alone but under makeup, it’s a gem. Why isn’t it more hyped is beyond me!!!


bareMinerals Prep Step 🐰

Top 10 Products of 2017 | MAKEUP

I was debating between placing bareMinerals Prep Step into my Top Skincare or my Top Makeup products of 2017 but it does such a great job at priming my face that it made it into my makeup category. It’s almost the perfect product with a little exception: when applied alone, it gives a slight red tone to my skin. A second primer in my Top 10!! It’s a first in my blogging career since primers have always been a nightmare for me.

Note: Surprisingly, this product has also the best ingredients as a sunscreen.


Josie Maran Argan Daily Moiturizer SPF 47 Protect & Perfect 🐰

Top 10 Products of 2017 | MAKEUP

I won’t ever be without Josie Maran Argan Daily Moiturizer SPF 47 Protect & Perfect. I mix it every single day with my Dr Jart + Premium Beauty Balm or another foundation and it gives the perfect amount of hydration & sun-kissed look that I need. I wish it was lighter as I would wear it alone in the Summer months.


Nudestix Nude(art)ist Magnetic Eye Box Set 🐰

Top 10 Products of 2017 | MAKEUP

I’ve said it abundantly; I find Nudestix to be one of the most underrated brand. These eye colour sticks are simply remarkable and such a hidden gem. One word: Versatility! They can be used as eye primers, all over lid color or eyeliner as they don’t transfer or budge.


Bite Beauty Lip Pencil (020) 🐰

Top 10 Products of 2017 | MAKEUP

I’m very picky when it comes to Lip Liners! I rarely use or need one since I’m a self-proclaimed Lip Gloss junkie. But last winter, I wore it a lot all over my lips. The formula is sooooo good that I’m contemplating buying other colors. The only downfall is that it’s not a twist up!

M.A.C Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Camel Coat

Top 10 Products of 2017 | MAKEUP

My love for M.A.C Pro Longwear Paint Pot is legendary but my transitioning to cruelty-free products means that I will no longer purchase these beloved pots and it really saddens me. I’ve always used Soft Ochre & Painterly as my eyeshadow base even if technically, these are regular cream shadows and in early 2017, I bought Camel Coat and OMG, it was love at first application. This colour is the perfect neutral muted beigy/fleshy tone that primes & mostly conceals discolourations on my eyelids. I’m praying that M.A.C (well Estee Lauder now) modify their policy regarding animal testings.


Hourglass AMBIENT Lighting Edit – Volume 3🐰

Top 10 Products of 2017 | MAKEUP

Superb is the only word I can think of to describe this Holiday 2017 Hourglass face palette. I use it every time I put makeup on. My goal is to finish it by the end of 2018 since without any doubt, I will buy the 2018 Holiday Edition. Hourglass makes hands down my favourite face finishing powders, bronzers & blushes (in the powder forms that is).

Kopari Coconut Lip Glossy in Pinkini, Mai Tai & Hibiskiss🐰

Top 10 Products of 2017 | MAKEUP

With our harsh Canadian winters, lipsticks are not the best alternative for my super dry lips. I’m left using only colored balms that are very hydrating (but I don’t really mind with my eternal gloss infatuation). These Kopari Coconut Lip Glossy were so highly rated that I took a leap of faith and purchased their Holiday Kit. These are so good I now understand where the hype comes from. it doesn’t hurt that they also smell like cake batter! One other thing worth mentioning: the colors are really pigmented for balms.


What about your top 10 products of 2017!

  1. Happy new year Ingrid! ❤
    It's always dangerous to read your top 10 lists because now I have new items to add to my wish list!
    I just checked and Sephora and MUFE Artist palette 4 is still available… only $29. Tempted!
    So sweet that BeardMan chose that Coola primer for you! Mine would have come back empty handed if he didn't find EXACTLY what I wrote down… 😛 I can't blame him.
