My Top Favorite Makeup Products in 2017

My Top Favorite Makeup Products in 2017

Who else feels like 2017 was yesterday? I was looking at my makeup a few days ago, and I realized that I scored so many gems last year. Some of my favorite makeup to date was released last year, and I never really shared my favorites. It’s March 🙃 but it’s not too late to share my top beauty favorites from 2017!


Wet N Wild Photo Focus Concealer in Light Ivory

This is great for dry under eyes because the creasing isn’t intense. Said to be a dupe for the Tarte Shape Tape concealer!


Maybelline Dream Cushion Fresh Face Liquid Foundation in 20 Classic Ivory

This is my fave light coverage foundation. Love popping this one for a fresh faced (hehe) look!

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation in 170

You know I have to show support for Rihanna at all times. This foundation is literally a filter!


Cover FX Illuminating Setting Powder

Powders are dry skin’s worst enemy, except for this one!

WNW Photo Focused Pressed Powder

Best. Drugstore. Powder. Ever.


L’Oreal Lash Paradise

For that fluffy lash look without the lash glue or annoying bands!

Benefit Roller Lash

Probably the only high-end mascara worth splurging on.

Eye Shadow:

Dose of Colors Marvelous Mauves

Mauvey goodness!

Too Faced Peachy Mattes

If I were a palette, I’d be this one.


Okay, so I have a slight obsession with lipsticks…

MUFE Artist Liquid Matte

THROW AWAY ALL OF YOUR LIQUID LIPSTICKS. This is the only one you need.

Urban Decay x Jean-Michel Basquiat Vice Lipstick in Abstract

This lipstick feels delicious on the lips. That is all.

Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb

No one can deny this is the best gloss of all time. Bet.

WNW MegaLast Matte Lipsticks

Tbh my lifetime fave matte lipsticks. I’m in love with the other formulas, too!


Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer

Get that tropical tan and scent with ease!

Urban Decay x Jean-Michel Basquiat Gallery Blush Palette

As if the Basquiat aspect of this weren’t great enough, this palette has become my fave cheek palette.


Smashbox Spotlight Pearl Palette (Collaboration with Casey Holmes)

This is my fave highlighter formula on this Earth. I own manyyy highlighters, jus sayin’.

Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Highlighter in Sin

Ugh in the best way.

Setting Spray:

Milani Make It Last Setting Spray

I’m strongly convinced this is God’s saliva. It’s too good to just be man made.

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

Someone please tell Wendy to call this the For Life setting spray.


e.l.f. Lock On Liner & Brow Cream in Medium Brown

This trumps Dip Brow.

L’Oréal Brow Stylist in Brunette

The fact that I’ve bought this pencil 5 times and took it to study abroad with me should be enough praise.



The hype is REAL.

Wet N Wild

Affordable and beautifully blends eyeshadow and blushes, she’s Miss Wet N Wild Brushes.


Becca First Light Priming Filter Face Primer

What are you waiting for if you have dry skin??

Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden

Your eyeshadow deserves this.


I’m going to be making individual blog post reviews for each of these products once a week. I have a few series planned to go live first, so stay tuned (wink) I want my blog to become a makeup review resource for popular and indie beauty products. Is there anything you enjoyed in 2017 that wasn’t on my list? Let me know in the comments below so I can try it and review it!

Be sure to share your thoughts on my posts with me in the comments below or on my social media pages: yolauralikesbeauty on Instagram and Facebook; yolauraisfierce on Twitter.

Thanks for reading! 💋
