Now is a great time to look ahead toward this year's new trends (coming soon), as well as the chance to look back at the previous year and reflect on its highlights.
In this article, I’ll bring you through a few of my favorite brand new products of 2019! Since I’m a makeup artist, it’s likely no surprise that many of my suggestions are from the makeup department - but don’t worry, there’s one from the makeup department of the drugstore! Let’s start the list with some sparkle and shimmer, shall we?
One of the hottest products of the year was the Stila Liquid Eyeshadow
Glitter & Glow collections. It is a beautiful tube of shiny glitters (hence the name) that are fabulous. You can wear them at full sparkly strength, or you can choose to sheer them out for a softer shimmer, which makes them very versatile. My personal favorite is the iconic “Kitten Karma,” the liquid version of the shadow their lead global artist Sarah Lucero created.
First of all, the name is fun. Second, this eyeliner is one of the easiest-to-use liquid liner’s I’ve come across, and for added drama, the black is extra dark black, which can make eyes really pop! The eyes are the windows to the soul, but they can take a backseat to beautiful, glowing skin with the right skincare!
This is perfect if you travel! It’s super hydrating and fantastic in these cold Winter months, and feels refreshing all year long! Speaking of “all year long,” that’s how long it’s going to feel like this first of two lip colors lasts!
This is a long-lasting lipgloss that comes in a wide range of colors from bold to barely there. Even better is that they’re at a great price and available at drugstores and Target!
When you hear (or read) the name “Origins,” you probably think of skincare first. Think of those types of benefits, and then throw in some fun colors and you have Origins Blooming Bold Lipstick, which is a bolder (as the name implies) long-wearing new addition to their lip product line!
The “to toe” part of the rest of our list (except the bonus dream splurge new launch) is a whole line with products that go from head-to-toe itself!
Seeds Phytonutrients, a company owned by L’Oreal, is a brand new line that has amazing smelling natural and organic ingredients. The shampoo and conditioner come in newly developed shower safe bottles that are mostly made out of paper, and there are seeds hidden in the packaging that you can plant to help biodiversity! There are also amazing-smelling skin and body-care products, all worth checking out!
If you’ve tried the final product, you’re either very serious about your hair, a hair professional, or someone with lots of extra money laying around/generous friends! Enter the Dyson Airwrap styler, which can straighten or curl your hair, wet or dry, while causing less damage, increasing volume, and creating a stunning shiny finish - sounds perfect and like a dream come true, right? Yes - but only if you have $549 to invest in a set of hair products!
I hope that you enjoyed my list of favorites from head-to-toe and everywhere in between! I am excited to see what 2019 has in store for us product-wise! I am hoping for an increase in seeing healthy, glowing skin over full-coverage foundation, as well as examining the impact the CBD oil health trend has on skincare and maybe even makeup! And is it too much to ask for a nail polish solution that stays on until we want it off, WITHOUT damaging our nails? If we can put a man on the moon, this should be easy, right?
