Beauty Faves of 2017

Hello beauties,

Can you believe another year done and dusted? I can’t! 2017 has been an interesting year for the blogging community, changes to Instagram, marketing and disclosure rules and of course a bit of controversy. But through it all I still love it, because I get to talk to you about all my passions.

For 2018, I want to continue to branch out and focus more on fashion. I hope you’ll continue to stick it out with me. Of course beauty will still be my first love, but I don’t want to restrict myself and bore you with the same old. On that note, I’ve decided to stop monthly faves on the blog. I’ll still do it but on Instagram either through a post or Insta Stories. Comment below with your thoughts x

Anyway, moving on from the rambling intro to my well loved beauty products of 2017.


I’m not even going to specify the products because honestly it’s the combination of multiple products and regular Ultra treatments that has left me with the best skin I’ve had in years. Click here for my experiences with Ultraceuticals.


Kat Von D Lock It Foundation* and Kat Von D Lock It Powder*

I didn’t expect to like these two but fell madly in love with them both. The foundation is full coverage and long lasting but the wrong colour so I mix with another foundation. It’s a great foundation if you like full coverage and have oily skin like me. And the powder is great! Its quite thin and translucent and doesn’t make me look cakey.

Thin Lizzy Crémé Concealer*

I never really talk about the concealer but it’s the only concealer I’ve used all year. It’s the concealer that keeps on giving. Its really luminous and has decent coverage. I highly recommend checking it out.

Revlon Contour Kit*

I think its fair to say this has been featured every day in my makeup routine. I love the bronzer and contour and use the banana shade to set my under eyes. If you haven’t tried it you need to get on it! Also, while this was gifted I’ve gone and bought two back ups with my own money.

Beauty Faves 2017

Becca X Jaclyn Hill Palette

I know this is limited edition but I use this pretty much every day so I couldn’t not feature it. If you can get your hands on it I highly recommend getting it.

Cover FX Mattifying Spray*

A relatively new discovery for me but OMG this stuff is good. I used it on my wedding day and while we were away in humid climates and my makeup did not budge.

Shu Umera Urban Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner*

This range has honestly helped repair and hydrate my hair! I noticed after using this for a couple of months I had less split ends and my hair had a beautiful glossy finish without looking oily.

So there you have it! Did you spot any of your faves? Also if you want more information about any of the products I’ve tagged my reviews.

  1. You’ve definitely convinced me with the Ultraceuticals! The couple I’ve tried, I LOVE! I want to go in and have a consultation, it’s just a shame that there’s no great Ultraceutical counter in Canberra 😫. So many amazing products on here though!

  2. Last year I definitely upped my skincare game too! I’m currently using Medik8 (about 90% too) and absolutely loving it! And I am lucky enough to have a therapist in my (very) small town who stocks and uses it in her treatments!! But I love that Ultraceuticals is Australian owned and made!! I will definitely have to check them out!
