As the year is coming to an end, I decided to pay homage to some of my favorite purchases of 2019! I did a post like this similar in 2018, except it was a monthly fave. (Not Personal Purchases)
(I will go ahead and link it *here*) if you wanna check it out! I figured this would be a fun little wrapped up blog of all the cute things I ended up LOVING!
This year was an exceptional year for fashion & beauty. We have all seen the rise in new trends ranging from the likes of athletic wear, sneakers & beauty products that have collectively changed the way trends rise, just as quickly as they fall. Fortunately, I have an array of favorite items I purchased this yea, that are most likely gunna be around for a while & I can not wait to share them with you all!
PS. This is not in order, these items are all literally my faves! *dead ass*
ALSO- NONE OF THESE ITEMS ARE SPONSORED. THIS IS MY PERSONAL OPINION!
#1 Charlotte Tillbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation
Oh. My. God. I can not stress this enough- this foundation is literally the best. I bought mine at my local Sephora. (You can get this online from a few merchants as well!) And I purchased the shade 5 Neutral. This foundation is a tad bit matte, but a little goes a LONG way. You honestly need very little with this beauty product, and it will spread and blend with ease. It’s sooooo light, yet still full coverage. Honestly, pair this with your favorite dewy setting spray, if you’re not looking for a matte foundation- & all of your wildest dreams will come true. (Via makeup, of course.)
#2 LOVING TAN MOUSSE SELF-TANNER
I love being tan. I hate trying to get tan, considering my skin is VERY fair & I burn so easily. (My middle Eastern genes screwed up on that part somehow.) The Loving Tan Mousse is incredible at a fake n bake, without actually looking fake. It is so natural, easy to use & does not – I REPEAT- Does NOT streak!!!!! I usually get the 2hr EXPRESS in the color “DARK” – and I get compliments every single time! (You need to just follow the directions, I promise if it comes out bad you’re doing something wrong.) You can get yours here !
#3 SAINTWULF LOGO CHAIN BAG
HAD TO DO IT TO ‘EM. This may be bias… well.. to you! But I am so proud of the quality and aesthetic of SHOPSAINTWULF.COM and SAINTWULF the brand on the way this chain bag came out! It’s so cute and light, but with great integrity. Not only is the quality remarkable, but its made with vegan leather!
You can get yours right here!
#4 TIME LOSANGELES LUXURY MINK LASHES
These lashes are so insane. They are so beautiful & completely transform your entire look. To be honest, since I tried TIME Los Angeles lashes, I can not even fathom wearing anything else. I don’t think I have ever found myself reaching for the same lashes as I have with these. I can’t forget to mention that they are so well created, you can get like over 20 uses out of them. (No Joke.) If you want to look bomb af, you have to cop. Get your own lashes, here at SHOPTIMELA.COM !
#5 MELLANNI 1800 microfiber BED SHEETS
DURABLE. SOFT. INEXPENSIVE. That’s literally all you need in a sheet set. Not only does it come with pillow cases, but there a variety of colors to choose from! Everyone can find the perfect shade or print to match their aesthetic. Did I mention it was hypoallergenic? Win Win!
#6 THE BODY SHOP JAPANESE VEGAN MATCHA FACE MASK
I was a little hesitant to get this. My cousin and I were shopping during the day & she came across this Matcha pollution clearing mask. She read how positive the reviews were, so we both bought one and hoped for the best. Turns out, it was a GREAT purchase & I definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to help clear their skin from dubber and dander- along with yucky pores. I use this around 2-3 times a week & I really am starting to see a difference! I loveeee it! Ohh- also- it smells SO good!
#7 KKW BEAUTY CONTOUR STICK
This contour stick is SO creamy and smooth and easily blended. At first, I thought it was too light. I soon realized, that is exactly why this product is so efficient. I ended up getting two, after my first purchase. This is one of the first times I have ever bought “celebrity makeup” besides Fenty- and I actually am really impressed. (Sidetone, I tried her lipsticks as well & I LOVED THEM. )
#8 GAIAM COLD THERAPY MASSAGE ROLLER
If you are anything like me, you are probably sore all the time.
In my case, I don’t know why- I work at a desk all day. Perhaps its posture- well regardless of the reasoning, it always feels good to roll out your aches and pains and this makes it so much easier. Just stick this bad boy in the freezer and take it out when you need to roll out a strain, you’re good to go! I got mine here at Target!
