--> Yellow Sisii: BEST OF 2017 - MAKEUP AND SKINCARE.


Thursday, January 18, 2018

2018 is here , so it’s the perfect time to share some of my favorites of 2017, both makeup and skincare. Unfortunately, I didn’t get as much makeup and skincare as I would have liked but I’m going to share with you the few that I purchased and fell in love with.

1) LA GIRL PRO COVERAGE HD FOUNDATION. I already have an in-depth  review on this beautiful body of foundation, check here for it.  At first I didn’t like it because I got the wrong shade but then I found a way around it and since then I’ve been in love with it. It gives that healthy natural glow to the face and it is actually long wearing. 

2)   ELF SUNKISSED BRONZER. This highlighter is absolutely gorgeous. I also have a review on it here. It is pigmetend and completely affordable, you can’t beat that combination. I have a review here

3) NUBAN BEAUTY PRO COMPLEXION BLENDER   I think this is my favorite purchase of 2017. It is so unbelievably soft and it does its job perfectly. You can get it here. It’s from a Nigerian brand and very affordable, you should try it. 

4) KAYGE COSMETICS LIPLINER IN COCOA  Another Nigerian brand on my list and I must say they definitely didn’t disappoint on this one. I talked about this one in my affordable go-to everyday nude lipsticks post. It is the perfect brown to complement any nude lipstick. It doesn’t seem a surprise to me that I’ve almost run out of it because I was reaching for it almost every single day. Highly recommend it. 

5)HOUSE OF TARA MARGARET EKPO PALETTE. This eyeshadow palette right here is a girl’s dream palette. It has so many pigmented (yes, I’m shouting) and colorful shades. It just screams drama and I love drama (only in my makeup though). If you love playing with eyeshadow you should get this palette, you won’t regret it. 

6) JUMIA LASHES. I call them Jumia lashes because that’s where I got them from and they don’t have any names. I got them for 600 Naira each. Each pack comes with 5 pairs. That price is just unbelievable especially as these lashes are super gorgeous. I think the price may have gone up a bit but I urge you to get them. 

7) BOOTS GLYCERIN AND ROSEWATER TONER. This is the only skincare item on my list but it’s one of the most important things I bought this year. It has played such an important role in getting my skin to where it is now. It is also extremely affordable at 800 Naira. If there’s anything you should get on this list , I think it should be this. 

All of these items are highly recommended and of course they’re all affordable because I’m about that budget friendly lifestyle. Please try them out and see. If you have any of these items please comment them in the comment section and also please give me your recommendations because I’m open to trying out new things this year. 
PS: I have included links to where you can purchase some of these items so you don’t get confused, just click the name of the product. 

Happy new year everyone. This year is going to be amazing and I feel it deep down. So buckle up and enjoy the ride

  4. I've been meaning to try out that glycerin and rosewater! Oh well, I have rose water right now sha. I also have so many products I need to use them all up before getting more to avoid wastage! It was nice to read on your faves, I'm definitely keeping an eye on that glycerin & rosewater, the ELF item, lashes and the sponge! Unfortunately if I was to buy the sponge it'll cost me 4500 with shipping included .. soo I guess I will just quietly move on lol
