My Makeup Favorites For 2018

Hello all,

Today I want to fill you all in on my favorite makeup products of 2018. Now some of these products may have introduced before 2018 but I didn’t find out or try them until 2018.


This year my absolute favorite primer is the Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base Priming Moisturizer. This primer is so awesome during any time of the year.  I just started using this product this year which has been a game changer for my skin.  I don’t use this product every day because of the price that I paid for it.  I usually use a drug store primer from Maybelline that is similar as far a texture but at a much lower price. The Bobbie Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base is an oil-free formula combines the moisturizing power of shea butter with vitamins B, C, and E for antioxidant protection to fend off environmental damage. Grapefruit and geranium fragrances leave a light, uplifting scent on the skin.  Now, this primer is pretty pricey but ever so awesome for my skin.



My favorite foundation for 2018 has been the Maybelline Superstay Foundation Stick. Since the release of the Maybelline Multi-Use Superstay Foundation in 2017, I have been a huge fan of this line. The foundation has been my favorite everyday wear foundation since then.  In 2018 Maybelline introduced the Superstay Foundation Stick.

Super Stay Multi-Use Foundation Stick Makeup is formulated with a cream-to-matte finish. Whether you’re looking for a cream foundation or a contour foundation, this multitasking stick is a must-have essential that conceals, contours, highlights, and covers.

I use this foundation stick is 3 shades. One for foundation(330), contouring (370), and concealing (312). So if I am in a rush or when I travel these foundation sticks are now one of my staples in my makeup collection.



Now my favorite contour of 2018 is the Makeup Revolution London Conceal & Define Concealer.  Now, this product is very versatile. You can use this product to conceal and contour. For me personally, I only use this product to contour.  I absolutely love how I am able to chisel my face with the product.  I currently this product in C14 and during the summer months C15 in which both shades are a few shades darker than my actual foundation shade.


Setting Powder

My two favorite setting powders of 2018 are the ColourPop No Filter Setting Powder in Banana and the Makeup Revolution Luxury Baking Powder.  The ColourPop setting powder is ultra fine in which I love and when applied you can barely tell you have it on.  I usually wear this setting powder during the cooler months because my skin is so dry. Now during the summer months, I love the Makeup Revolution Baking Powder. The powder came out in 2017 in which this powder has been my go-to ever since.  I usually bake more during the warmer months since this powder is awesome at keeping the little oil that may seep through at bay.



Eyeshadow Palette

I have two favorite palettes for 2018. One is a budget-friendly palette and the other is a little bit on the pricey side.  My favorite budget-friendly palette is from Makeup Revolution.  The newtrals 3 palette is so beautiful.  This palette is one of my everyday go-to palettes that has won me over. The shimmers and matte shades are so pigmented and for the price, you can’t go wrong with this.



Now the palette that I love that is a bit on the pricey side is the Urban Decay Naked Cherry Eyeshadow Palette.  When this palette leaked this year, it sent the beauty world in a frenzy.  I was dying to see what the makeup influencers had to say about it.  Once the reviews were out and many gave their blessings I purchased this palette.  The palette is so beautiful and worth every penny.  I love the shades and the pigmentation is so awesome.




This year I fell in love with the 8C Cool Pro Blush Palette from Morphe Cosmetics. This palette features eight blendable, super-boss shades in matte, shimmer, and satin finishes that command attention in all the right ways. The shades in this palette are so beautiful and I love that I can mix these blush shades together.


My favorite highlighter palette of 2018 is the Sleek Cosmetics Copperplate Highlight Palette.  This palette is so beautiful and features rich coppers and duo-toned gold shades to give you a lit from within glow, no matter what your skin tone. The highly pigmented copper shade brings warmth to the face, whilst the metallic bronze colours transition to rose gold for that ultimate glaze. The compact is so beautiful, shiny and sleek and it is the best as far as size when I travel.


My ultimate favorite mascara wasn’t released in 2018 but it has been my ultimate favorite since it’s debut.  The Benefit BADgal Bang! Volumizing Mascara creates massive volume without weighing down lashes. The gravity-defying formula builds volume the more you layer and contains aero-particles, one of the lightest known materials, derived from space technology. Before I started using this mascara I felt that I had average length eyelashes but when I used this mascara for the first time I was amazed at how long my lashes really were.  This mascara brings my lashes to ultimate life and since using this mascara I have completely stopped using false lashes.


Setting Spray

This year my favorite setting sprays have been the Morphe Cosmetics Continous Setting Mist and the Urban Decay Cherry Scented All Nighter Setting Spray.  I started using the Morphe Cosmetics Continous Setting Mist because I wanted something lightweight and I had noticed that a lot of beauty influencers loved using it. So when I purchased and used this for the first time I was in love.  The mist smells so good and it gives me the most refreshed feeling every time I use it.  Plus my makeup is flawless each time I use this spray.  Now when I am going out on the town my favorite go-to has always been the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.  When the Naked Cherry Eyeshadow Palette was released, a Cherry Scented All Nighter Setting Spray was also released so, of course, I decided to order this and check it out and can I say this spray smells so good and like always this setting spray has may makeup on fleek.


Now I can’t end this without telling you about my ultimate favorite lipgloss of 2018.  I absolutely love the Fenty Beauty Gloss Bombs.  This gloss comes in 3 colors Fenty Glow, Diamond Milk, and the new and just released Fu$$y.  I have this gloss in all 3 colors.  Hands down these are the best lip glosses on the market.  Each shade gives you awesome effect all depending on the look you want.


Well, ladies and gents I have pretty much laid out my makeup favorites for 2018.  I can’t wait for that 2019 has to bring.  I am pretty sure that many of my current favorites will be staples in my overall makeup collection but like I said you never know what comes up next.  I hope you have enjoyed this weeks post feel free to comment and let me know what your favorite makeup products were for 2018.

  1. Nice to see so many neutrals in there. I’ve never been big on showy makeup but neutrals can also be boring. Looks like I need to explore a few of these! Thanks!
