BEST VS WORST MAKEUP OF 2017 | sophdoesnailsApr 01, 2022
hi guys today i come to you again without
makeupbecause i thought i dont know i just thought it would be more fun if you guys would like to join me on this
makeupjourney and in this video i am going to show you demonstrating on my face half and half the
2017in my opinion and the
2017and i just want to say that you have made my 2017 as amazing as it has been one of the
best. years of my life so i just want to say if you have subscribed to me and if you support me throughout 2017 if you watch my videos if you have left me a comment if you like my videos if you have subscribed like any of those things just if you support me in any way I just want to say a huge thank you because it's been such a great year and I can't wait for 2018 and if you guys haven't had a great year then I hope 2018 is better for you and you know not every year can be the best the best year of your life i hope 2018 is the one i just wet my face it's my guru soap and speed pump i don't really have a foundation on this because i don't really count foundation as makeup because it goes on like before your makeup and for my foundations are normally i just use some kind of sticky moisturizer or something so i think i make this side the best side and this side the
worstside for foundation and for best foundation of the year i only found this out in the last few months even pro Looking at it like over the past few months, I would go as far as to say that this is my favorite foundation of all time, which is insane.
I also love Revlon Colorstay, but my favorite foundation of all time is the maybelline superstay 24 hour full coverage foundation. I wear the true ivory shade and oh my gosh this is good oh oh oh by the way I have a mix of drugstore and high end products in this video and I love drugstore makeup like this foundation I think it's like 10 pounds and but there bee n a couple of high end things that if I'm being totally honest about what has been the best makeup of the year then you know I have to mention them but I'm also going to try to offer some similar alternatives to the pharmacies.
Also, the reasons I love this foundation is that it's full coverage, it's sort of matte, sort of a semi-matte and I think on my oily skin it's the longest lasting foundation I've ever tried, by the way, I really don't do. I don't mean to offend anyone in these videos if some of the products I mentioned are your favorite products that's awesome and I'm so glad they work for you but these are just products that personally don't work for me and I love them. all the brands that are on the worst product side there are also many other of your products that work for me but they are like the specific products that don't work for me and my skin and you know look y'all get what i mean It's just for the worst base I love the body shop some do or I also like really cool products.
Matte clay skin lightening foundation. I don't know what it's about. I just couldn't get it to work. This is the Peruvian Lily shade and I know a lot of people really like this foundation but I just didn't do that well with it I just found that I really like it to stick to my dry patches and stuff so I'll use the other side from my beastie burner to blend this in ok i'm not going to lie the first time i used this was absolutely horrible now it doesn't look too bad but i still don't like it i really thought i really hated that foundation i actually don't hate it now that It's on my skin but I'll just show you my nose.
I really don't like how it looks around my nose and like on my nose. I don't know. I found that when I wasn't before it really emphasized a lot of my dry areas and I don't even have that many dry patches because my skin is oily so for the concealer I'm going to do the worst one first just in case any of my b The concealer is it absorbs into my sponge for the worst concealer of the year. This is miss beauty liquid concealer. This concealer is only a pound, but I have definitely tried other concealers for a pound that work much better than these.
I don't. i know what it is it's so weird it just comes off and dries up and then leaves like weird patches on your face let me try to show you but can you see it's already sort of dry under my eyes no matter how hard you push it? try blending it seems to remove cover and stick like random patches of your face like you don't know it's just some weird concealer but then for best concealer of the year and best cover up i've ever had i tried it won't be a surprise , this is the tarte simian shaped concealer and i am actually going to be doing a top 10 or top 5 drugstore concealer very soon.
I will still love my collection the bourgeois too but the tarte shaped ape is just the best you really don't need a lot and it goes a long way it has such good coverage it lasts all day it's my favorite style you can order it in the cake website but normally you have to pay like £15 postage and customs and stuff which is ridiculous and if you have any of your friends I'm going to America to have them bring it to you because it's so good oh oh you can also buy from QVC but it's much more expensive than in America ok so for my face powder the worst face powders i've tried this year and one of them is like a translucent loose powder the other is a banana powder this is the soft focus technical powder what i really don't like about this is that it just feels like she feels like you're chalking your face like i don't know how to describe it it's just a little bit it makes me cringe like i'm so dry or and then LA girl banana powder like yeah it's too dark for me but I really don't like the formulation of this.
I'm going to put a little bit of this in und. er my eyes and just to show why I don't like it but honestly I just like banana powders in general they are always too yellow on my skin and then the technique is I just don't know I really don't like the way it feels on my face, it's so dry and also it literally flies everywhere and i feel it like in my lungs when i use this powder which isn't really so my favorite powder of the year has definitely been the Rimmel Match Perfection Silky Loose Face Powder this is sheer and what i like about this is that it has no flash back so you can use it for photos and stuff and yeah it's just a really really nice powder and i really really like what she's done recently i've been loving and the powder Revlon Colorstay that one is really good too so for my brows my favorite brow product of the year i had to sum up the one i have used the most and like it hit the pan. this is Freedom Duo Brow Powder in Ash Brown what I r My favorite thing about this is that my hair is grey.
I find it goes very well with my hair because it has quite a cool tone. A lot of people seem to steer clear of brow powder, but it's so much easier to work with than brow pomade. or something because it's a powder you can move it around well so that's not my brow using this I think it's about four pounds or five pounds maybe and then my least favorite brow products are first of all the pencil Rimmel brow pencil in the hazelnut shade and also MUA defining tinted brow mascara and blonde mainly because the colors of these don't work for me but this Rimmel brow pencil is so hard it actually feels like it's stabbing me to myself.
A lot of drugstore brow products are so orange and warm in tone that's why I don't get along with them and then this brow gel that I also find is very very warm and that brow is the best contour product I've ever tried but i actually use it. this very sparingly because it is s Expensive this is the kevyn aucoin sculpting powder in the light shade. I love this for contouring so if you are looking for an alternative to this then my favorite drugstore like contour palette has been Red Lon whats the cool sculpting and highlighting contour kit? as you can see if you hit the bronzer side but that's because it just needs a little bit of the contour but if i compare the colors like they're similar they both have a really great shade and then in terms of my favorite bronzers of the year because first i'm going to do like this bronzer and contour side and the two that i really loved have been omg this finally got destroyed i had to fix it with duct tape this is the ultra sculpt and contour kit from the makeup revolution in the ultra fair shade c01 and this shade here is a bronzer it's so good and i've used it so much it's literally like crumbling another bronze from our absolute that you love and i want to include here but i can only get this in america it's the butter bronzer from Physicians Formula.
I love these things so much that it's pretty hard to do like half your forehead with bronzer. Wow, that's too much. the contour palette is the architects sunkissed tan and contour kit highlight um just because the contour is so dark and so warm and the bronzer again is so warm i just like it it just doesnt work for me because my skin is so pale like that It's not a good contour shade, it's just orange. I can contour and tan anyway and this makes it even more difficult. like the last clip and then i thought i would hit play again but actually i just focused and my camera wasn't even recording so i just didn't put the highlighter on so no i'm just going to have to talk about this again but what did i just say ing i know i brought my own highlighter palette this year with the makeup revolution but oh illuminators just cant be beat and 2017 is the year i discovered Ofra and this one in particular which is the donut frosting by nikkietutorials, it's crazy just like you.
You need the smallest dab of water and you pick up as much pigment as the pigmentation of these are just the most pigmented highlighters I've ever seen like I'm not kidding they are just ridiculous and you need a bit of your brush that's why I like to just put my face already as i sprayed myself on this i know they are quite expensive but honestly i think they are worth it you can get them in the uk on beautybay or if you are in the us or anywhere else in the world you can get them on the site Web.
I have a discount code with Ophir, but that doesn't influence my opinion of them in the slightest. You know I love these if you will. use my discount code it's so thi rty I think but it's an affiliate code if you don't chill then you don't have to use it but it will give you 30% off so my least favorite highlighter of 2017 um I don't know if I have a bad batch or mine was pressed funny because i love some of jeffries other highlighters this is the jeffree star cosmetics skin frost in the shade crystal ball and i have ice cold and princess car and i really like those but this one the texture is just so weird like it's really, really hard and really thick, can you come over?
Can you see that it has a little bits on it? So I'm going to try to put a little on my face, but before I leave you, you have to scrub my brush. in there even after doing that nothing comes out on my face it's the weirdest thing you like you really have to go in and do about three coats and then even just on my skin it just doesn't look right my shadow My least favorite eyeshadow palette this year is the LA girl neons eyeshadow collection I don't know if you guys remember my video where I wear this but it was like a train wreck basically almost every shade in here is bright actually no thats a lie there are three different matte shades but they just didnt blend well for me like i just i dont know i couldnt i was really frustrated when i was using them because they just didnt blend that well and i go with the orange first which is pretty pigmented like they're not horrendous but they're definitely my least favorite shades to buy that I've tried this year it looks good and then coming in with the pink which is right next door it's really tricky to create a nice look with n him because then I would like to go. with a darker kind of matte shade but these are all like sparkles and ideally I'd like to use this purple but it's a shimmer so it just doesn't work.
I'm going to take the black and run that. through my crease oh no that was bad oh my gosh the black doesn't have it she just kind of got stuck in a group can you see us try to build it up some more and then I'm going to take the purple on a flat brush and I'm just going to pack this into the center of my eye which purple is actually quite nice when you like to pack it in. I just wish there were more crease colors in this palette the purple in this is pretty pretty and then on my inner corners I'm just going to take the white which is very chalky ok so for my favorite palette of the year I know this It's going to be very skewed, but I was thinking back to 2017 and thinking about what palette did I use, what palette did I like to get the most out of and reach for the most all the time. and it's my makeup revolution palette obviously because I designed this to have all the shades I want in one eyeshadow palette obviously I'm going to be using it a lot honestly it's the one I look for the most like you I can tell mine is a little hit so I'm going to try to create something similar to what I did on this eye so I'm going to go in with the pumpkin shadow which is this orange heredown, and I'm just going to thread that through my crease.
I actually managed to break this in because I've been riding with it so much that it's sort of dangling it's kind of an odd color combo but then I'm going to go in with a black because that's what I did on the other eye so also I will carry it out. my crease is such a weird color combo then i am going to take the purple shade from my palette called mixed berry and again i am going to put this on my lid because it is similar to the one i just used ok my eyes look so weird and uneven now, I mean they weren't supposed to be symmetrical, but this looks a little messy. shade here which is called fairy lights they're not supposed to match y'all get the gi ok so for the eyeliner worst eyeliner i've tried this year and i forgot because i love so many products from benefits, but the push-up liner is honestly the worst eyeliner i have ever used. you have to twist this thing at the bottom and then that eyeliner comes out of this weird rubber tube that you're supposed to make your eyeliner out of but it's the weirdest formula ever it just drags over your eye and it forms a ball like it's so weird it's so dry it doesn't even come out.
I actually can't get this to work right, a bit literally fell off and landed on my lap. My eyes really, really hurt like I'm really trying. Literally the best I can do. My favorite eyeliner of the year is the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner. I have a duplicate for this which is the NYX Epic Ink Liner but I couldn't find it anywhere, it's kind of like a brush instead of a felt tip is small it's actually a small brush so you can get like a really precise wing with it then for the mascara I've talked about this before but my least favorite mascara this year is the mascara shake it fresh I thought this got cold like volume shaker but it says shake it cool on her this is the mascara you're supposed to shake off from rimmel firstly it's very very heavy and secondly i found it didn't do anything for my lashes so i did it I'll try a third time and see what we get. it's such a wet mascara it doesn't curl my lashes it doesn't give me volume it doesn't give me length it just tints them black and I think the whole volume tossing thing is a bit of a gimmick every once in a while in terms of my favorite mascara , I've had so many amazing drugstore mascara finds this year and I'd say overall my favorite is probably L'Oreal's miss baby roll mascara, mine is actually almost out of stock but I thought I'd bring it back for this one video because i love this mascara i think l'oreal makes a great mascara and i've really liked the l'oreal paradise one is alright and the maybelline big shot mascara and then in terms of lashes my favorite ashes of the year in I love one one 7s and my least favorite are the natural lashes from Primark but I don't have any sight of them right now so I can't put them on but you know finally for my lips my favorite liquid lipsticks of the year . and which i again discovered in 2017 these are the ofra liquid lipsticks i have talked about so many times on my channel but their formula is so lovely they smell amazing like no other liquid lipsticks from our scent they are just a moosie formula really soft and lightweight they last a long time but don't dry out.
I also love my jeffree star liquid lipsticks but in terms of the ones i discovered this year it has to be the Ofra ones and my two favorite shades are sour Paolo I don't know if I'm saying that right and all the writing is literally horrible because i've been wearing it a lot and then manila is my new favorite so i'm going in with a sour paolo because it's my favorite and then my least favorite liquid lipsticks i have to say is the boohoo liquid lipsticks , these are very drying and some of the other boohoo products are really good like that highlighter is bomb but these liquid lipsticks are so dry I'm going to show I own everything so I know these colors don't mix well , so this is my overall faith and let me show you a little closeup so this is the good side and then this is the bad side in all honesty the bad side The side doesn't really look that bad but the things that definitely me The first thing I would avoid is this lipstick because it's okay, I'm going to do something that will make you cringe, but can you see how dry it is when I rub it on?
It literally makes the sound like paper, can you hear that? Well, it gives me chills. Honestly I think I probably could have built this side of the eye shadow to look the same as this but I just gave up on this side because I was getting frustrated ok so overall that's on my face and yes like. I said I don't really think the side looks that bad, but it has definitely been my least favorite makeup of 2017 for all the reasons I just explained. I like the outline on this side like it's not just me so those are all my favorite and least favorite products of 2017 I really hope you found this useful and please let me know below what your favorite products of 2017 have been I enjoyed this video and would like to see more of me and my face, then be sure to hit the subscribe button below.
