Hi everyone! Last week, I shared a post on Nine Beauty Brands I Want to Try in 2019, and today I’m wanted to talk about nine beauty products I want to try this year. You might be wondering what the difference between the two posts are. Last post featured brands that I’ve never used before, whereas I’ve previously used the brands mentioned in this post, but have just not tried the specific products mentioned. However, as I was writing this post, I also ended up making a list of 9 more products from the brands featured in my Nine Brands I Want to Try post, so you’ll see those underneath as well. Onwards to the products!
I’ve wanted to try these lip masks for years. Years! Currently, I’m trying to work through 3 mini Laneige lip masks and one regular sized one – I doubt I’m going to get to the Agave lip mask this year with all of the lip masks in my collection, but I’ve wanted to try it for so long that I might as well put it on my list. I’m interested to see how it compares with the Laneige lip mask!
I tried my first Farmacy product this year via the Green Clean Meltaway Cleansing Balm, and I fell in love. There are a lot of skincare brands where one or two of their products look interesting to me, but I honestly want to try almost everything from Farmacy! I know I won’t be getting to all of their products in one year, but this moisturizer is the first on my list. I felt the texture in stores and it felt really lightweight yet hydrating. I think it might be a nice option for the summer!
In 2018, I finally got into facial oils, and I’ve heard that this Phoenix Oil is really good for dry skin. I’m also at that age where fine lines start to appear, and this is supposedly able to help with that. At $80 a pop, I think I would try to get a tester of this first before investing in a full size, but either way, this oil is intriguing.
I’ve only ever tried the Ambient Lighting Powders from Hourglass, but I’m so ready to branch out into their other products. A lot of these types of cream shadows were released from high end brands last year, and at first I wasn’t particularly interested. However, I’ve been really into doing just an all-over eyeshadow look lately and I have one particular shade in mind that I want to purchase – obviously, it’s the taupe shade in the line!
These didn’t really appeal to me when they first came out because not only are they they cream highlighters, but they’re also in stick form – I can’t think of anything I might hate more. However, this year was the year I finally discovered how much I enjoy cream highlighters, and I feel like if there’s one brand that might make me like face makeup that comes in a stick, it would be Hourglass. After seeing many positive reviews of this product, I have to say that my interest is piqued…
L’Oreal True Match Lumi Glotion – $18.99-$21.99
I’ve had my eye on this product since it came out, but I never ended up buying it last year. I think they only had one or two shades to begin with, but I like that they have since released deeper shades to suit a wider range of skin tones. I’m waiting for this to go on sale, and then I’m snatching this up!
Makeup Geek Pressed Eyeshadows – $6-$10 USD
Makeup Geek has been out of the limelight for a while now, until Marlena Stell came out with her “My Truth” video back in the summer. Anyways, even though nobody talks about Makeup Geek anymore, I’ve been meaning to try Makeup Geek’s eyeshadows for a few years now. I love their highlighters, and their eyeshadows are the next logical step. I plan on focusing on building up my custom Z-palette this year, so I think it’s a good time to buy a few MUG eyeshadows to add to the palette.
When these first came out, I didn’t even give them a second glance because it’s a cream highlight, and as I mentioned above, I’ve always disliked cream products. However, 2018 was the year that I surprisingly fell in love with cream products, so now I’m a bit more open-minded about these. I swatched these in stores a while back and they are freaking stunning! Instead of buying this at Sephora, I’ve decided I’m going to use my Optimum points to get this during one of their Spend Your Points events this year.
Stashmatters first brought this primer to my attention last year when she told me that it’s a dupe for my beloved Becca Backlight Priming Filter. I’m curious now, and I really want to give it a try. It’ll make for a good dupe post, too! Similar to the L’Oreal Lumi Glotion, I’m waiting for this to go on sale before I buy it.
9 Honourable Mentions of Products from Brands I’ve Never Tried:
Bobbi Brown Crushed Liquid Lipstick
I fell in love with the Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipticks in 2018 and I think these might be pretty similar. Bobbi Brown has the regular Crushed Lipsticks in bullet form, which I also want to try, but these liquid lipsticks are new to the brand!
Apparently, I want to try all the cream makeup this year! I finally had a chance to swatch these around Christmas, and they were really gorgeous. It’s going to be hard to choose between these and the Hourglass shadows because they’re so similarly priced!
Consonant HydExtreme – $149
This is another product that Stashy told me about last year. She told me she loves this, and when she says she loves something, you go out and buy it! In all seriousness, this product sounds sooo nice but it’s $150/30 mL?! Might be one to save for the VIB sale, or for when I win the lottery this year.
As cute as the packaging of Glow Recipe products are, I haven’t really been interested in their products until now. Most of their skincare looks too lightweight for my dry skin, until they recently came out with this Avocado Sleeping Mask. I love me some sleeping masks, and since I am also a millennial, I also love me some avocado!
I’ve always been a light coverage kind of gal when it comes to foundation, but in the last year I’ve had a lot of hyperpigmentation and needed a more medium coverage foundation to help cover up the dark spots. However, I’m at the point where I’m happy with my skin again and am looking to go back to a light coverage foundation or BB/CC Cream. A lot of my blogger friends rave about this, so I’m curious to try it.
I’ve never been much of a blush person; I can go using the same two blushes for years without being bored. However, I’ve been having a blush moment in the last few months, and these blush duos look so stunning. Also, I find this strangely affordable – $38 for 2 blushes is $19 per blush, versus their single highlighters which are $30. The only problem is that I can’t decide which duo I want because they all look pretty!
Do I need another highlighter? Nope. Do I want another highlighter? Heck yes! I’ve had my eyes on these since 2017 when I first heard about them, but back then I had no way of getting my hands on Jouer. Now that the brand is more readily accessible through Sephora, I’m going to make them mine!
This is another product I’ve had on my wishlist for years. It’s a huge bottle and pretty pricey, which has always stopped me from buying it. I would prefer if this came in a mini because it would be less costly and I would never be able to finish this, but I doubt they’re coming out with one anytime soon, so I think I’m just going to bite the bullet this year!
To be honest, I’m a little hesitant about this one, because I’m not really one for using brands started by influencers. With that being said, their Jet Lag Mask has gotten a lot of rave reviews from skincare bloggers and YouTube channels, so that definitely has me intrigued. I also love masking, so this is right up my alley.
That’s a long list, but it’s all the products I have my eye on this year! What products do you want to try in 2019?
