9 Things We’ve Been Loving Lately

Favorite Beauty Products January 2017

It’s time to share our latest beauty obsessions and discoveries from the past month. Every day we get to test out new products, from makeup to skincare to tools and more. We discover fantastic new products all the time, but these ones in particular have secured their spot in our hearts (and our makeup bags)!

We would love to hear about what you’ve been loving lately too—leave a comment and we might just give it a try!

  • 1 of 9 Maybelline Dream Cushion Liquid Foundation
  • Maybelline Dream Cushion Liquid Foundation
  • Maybelline Dream Cushion Liquid Foundation, $16

    Our love for cushion makeup is still going strong and this new drugstore formula leaves the complexion with a fresh-faced finish that looks healthy, natural and feels totally comfortable. It leaves skin with a luminous texture and light-to-medium coverage to hide blemishes and even out skintone.

  • 2 of 9 Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primers
  • Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primers
  • Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primers, $21 each

    We never knew how much we needed three different eye primers in our makeup bags, but this new range from Smashbox (aka the authority in making primers) has convinced us. Use a skintone shade (there’s three available) to even out redness on the eyelid, White to make bright eyeshadows pop or Smoke to create the perfect canvas for a smokey eye.

    Available online at sephora.com.

  • 3 of 9 First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Caffeine Matcha Wake Up Wipes
  • First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Caffeine Matcha Wake Up Wipes
  • First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Caffeine Matcha Wake Up Wipes, $15

    While we typically reach for facial wipes for a quick and easy cleanse at the end of the day (most likely from the bedside table!) these energizing “wake up wipes” are perfect for an early morning pick-me-up or invigorating cleanse post-workout. The superfood-infused wipes are packed with matcha green tea, energizing caffeine and brightening vitamin C to boost skin and protect from environmental damage.

    Available online at sephora.com.

  • 4 of 9 Bite Beauty Everyday Agave Collection
  • Bite Beauty Everyday Agave Collection
  • Bite Beauty Everyday Agave Collection, $18-$26 each

    So there’s actually more than one product here, but that’s because we can’t choose a favourite out of Bite Beauty’s new agave-infused lip care collection. Use the gentle (yet super effective) Lip Scrub to slough away dead skin with raw brown sugar and pineapple enzymes then follow up with the Lip Mask at night or the Lip Balm for daytime to hydrate and repair dry, chapped lips.

    Available online at sephora.com.

  • 5 of 9 Sephora Eggspert Mini Sponges
  • Sephora Eggspert Mini Sponges
  • Sephora Eggspert Mini Sponges, $12

    These miniature sponges are equal parts cute and convenient! The egg carton-style packaging is great for storage and the precisely-pointed sponges are perfect for blending out concealer, blush, foundation and more.

    Available online at sephora.com.

  • 6 of 9 Clinique Crayola Chubby Stick Lip Colour Balm
  • Clinique Crayola Chubby Stick Lip Colour Balm
  • Clinique Crayola Chubby Stick Lip Colour Balm, $17 each

    A childhood fave meets a grown-up must-have with Clinique’s latest collaboration. The iconic chubby tinted balms get a special Crayola-inspired tube that has us feeling all nostalgic (and our lips looking fab).

    Available online at sephora.com.

  • 7 of 9 Yves Saint Laurent
  • Yves Saint Laurent
  • Yves Saint Laurent "The Street And I" Blush Palette, $47

    YSL has this incredible way of turning a simple product into a covetable must-have. This brick pattern-embossed powder from the brand’s Spring 2017 collection leaves cheeks with the most beautiful, peach flush and the street art-inspired case makes it a fabulous collectible compact.

    Available online at nordstrom.com.

  • 8 of 9 Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Bi-Phase Serum
  • Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Bi-Phase Serum
  • Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Bi-Phase Serum, $59

    This refreshing serum has been a skin saviour this cold, dry winter season. Shake up the bi-phase liquid to homogenize the formula and be amazed at how plump, hydrated and smooth skin feels upon application. The serum contains a skin-quenching succulent plant extract to protect the skin’s natural moisture barrier and keep skin comfortable throughout the changing weather.

    Available online at sephora.com.

  • 9 of 9 Philosophy Amazing Grace Dry Shampoo
  • Philosophy Amazing Grace Dry Shampoo
  • Philosophy Amazing Grace Dry Shampoo, $24

    Whenever Philosophy launches any new product scented with their iconic Amazing Grace fragrance, we have to get our hands on it! This delightful (and super effective) dry shampoo texturizes, absorbs excess oil and softly scents hair with its addictive notes of Bergamot, Muguet Blossoms and Musk. They also launched a Body Mousse (which we’re loving too) and both formulas are also available in their ultra-clean Pure Grace scent too.

    Available online at sephora.com.
