It’s hard to be loyal to a brand, when your job literally involves testing out thousands of makeup products! However, over the past year we’ve discovered some Holy Grail items that are worth hoarding. Here is our list of the best of 2016.
Best Concealer: Marc Jacobs Beauty Re(Marc)able Full Cover Concealer
Deadlines and dark circles go hand-in-hand. This creamy concealer goes on smoothly to provide natural-looking coverage.
Best Highlighter: NYX Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator
The one thing we have in common with Gigi Hadid, is our obsession with dewy skin. With its subtle shimmer and peach tones, this highlighter works to deliver the prettiest, candlelit glow.
Best Eye Liner: ColourPop Liner In ‘DTLA’
You know you’ve come across a brilliant product when you find not one, not two, but five beauty editors talking about it! Apart from the creamy texture and longevity, we love how the navy hue enhances the whites of our eyes.
Best Mascara: Benefit Roller Lash Mascara
This baby is an absolute genius at holding a curl. The inky colour, unique wand and long-lasting results make it an undisputed winner. Plus, the tube is too cute to handle!
Best Brow Product: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz
Here’s a product that’s worthy of all accolades. The retractable pencil has the magical ability to fill in and define brows like no other.
Best Lipstick: Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick In ‘Lolita II’
Is it any surprise that this lipstick is on our list? The universally flattering shade stays put all day, without any fading.
Best Lip Gloss: Lancôme Juicy Shaker In ‘Mangoes Wild’
This martini shaker miniature has become a workplace staple. The sheer wash of colour livens up our complexion in minutes, whilst the lacquered finish makes us feel more sophisticated.
Best Nail Polish: Essie Gel Couture In ‘Bubbles Only’
No colour has graced our tips more than this burgundy hue. With a wear of 14 days – without any chips, this nail polish exceeded all our expectations.
