2018 Favorite Beauty Products

Happy Tuesday ladies! Today I’m sharing my favorite beauty products from 2018. I don’t know about you, but I love to see what women are using and I especially like to know their favorites.

Throughout the year I try a lot of different products, but these are the ones I always go back to. Basically, these products do what they say they do!


1. Bye Bye Pores Pressed Poreless Finish Airbrush Pressed Powder-I apply this after the CC cream. It gives a flawless finish.

2. It Cosmetics Brow Power Powder-This stuff is amazing. I love that it darkens but looks natural.

3. Subversion Lash Primer – Urban Decay-If you haven’t tried a primer, I highly recommend it. This helps strengthen your lashes, and it helps to thicken and lengthen them.

4. Your Skin But Better CC+  Cream with SPF 50+-My favorite foundation. I use it every day!

5. IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara-I love this mascara. It helps to lengthen my lashes.

6. Aquage Uplifting Foam, 8 Ounce-This is still my favorite way to add volume to my hair.

7. Jane Iredale PurePressed Blush in dubonnet-Such a pretty color blush that I wear every day.

8. Kajal Waterline Eyeliner by VASANTI – Intense Black-I have been only doing my upper waterline lately, and this one stays on.

9. POMMISST Hydration Spray-Great finishing product to set your makeup. I also use it when I want to freshen up later in the day.

10. Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer, Light-I really like this lid primer. It helps my eyeshadow to go on more smoothly and helps it to last longer.

11. Tarte Tartelette 2 In Bloom Clay Eyeshadow Palette-I have several Tarte palettes, and I love them all.

12. Maybelline New York Color Sensational Nude Lipstick, Warm Me Up-I use this as an everyday lip color. It’s a great neutral.

Have you tried any of these products? What are some of your favorites?

Since we are talking about things I love, I want to mention the Faster Way to Fat Loss. Ladies, let 2019 be the year you get healthy!! Join me on this journey of getting fit and staying fit.

Then next Faster Way to Fat Loss Bootcamp starts on December 31st. This is going to be a great year to be a part of the FWTFL!! Give yourself the gift of health this Christmas and sign up HERE.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to stop by my blog. I’m also on FacebookPinterest, and, Instagram.

Beauty For The Heart~~Christmas is two weeks away, and I don’t know about you but the next two weeks are full of activities for our family. I want to take time and enjoy the season.

Today I woke up with a thankful heart. Not because I have presents under my tree but because of a baby that was born: not just any baby, but a baby that would save the world.

My heart is full today because He has given me the best gift…eternal life.

For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

Have a blessed day!

  1. Yes, I do some of these – I use all the IT cosmetics that use. I tried not using the Bye-Bye pores pressed powder. I went back to using it – I could really see what a difference it makes! I also use the Aquage. I’ll be trying more of those products. I like to use makeup that I know will do what it say because it is so costly buying products that don’t work!! Thanks!!

  2. Love these posts! I’m going to have to give the IT pressed powder a try. I currently use a loose setting powder, but always up for trying something new. I recently bought the Maybelline lip stick and love it – bought another for my purse :).
    FWTFL – I was hesitant to try this, but so glad I did! I did one round that started in August, and frankly didn’t see how working out really so little could make such a difference, but I was wrong. I know it must be the combination of fasting, eating right and combining the right workouts on the right eating days -but it works! I’ve lost 16 lbs and about 12 inches overall. This program becomes the way of living, and it really is a simple but effective approach. Thank you, and Traci, for sharing with us.

  3. Hi Cyndi

    Can you share what your current skincare routine is? I’m currently looking to change mine up.


  4. I love favourite beauty product posts! There’s a lot on the list that I haven’t tried but now they’re on my Christmas list! I love the IT cosmetics CC cream – and their brushes…

    I’m on a healthy hair kick lately so I had my hairstylist add Olaplex to my colouring routine…I also started to add it to my weekly deep conditioning – am totally in love and notice a HUGE difference (it’s like I have a different head!) and also use the Biogeo hair products from Sephora…not sure if it’s that or the Olaplex or the Dyson hair dryer but noticeable beyond belief.

    Other things I love are the Glopro Microneedling Tool – awesome, and the rose quartz face roller, again, awesome. Love Shiseido Sun Protection Lotion

    For a quick pick-me-up, I take an aloe vera leaf purchased at the grocery store, take all the aloe from the leaf and place it in a blender…that takes out the chunks and liquifies it…place the liquid in an ice cube trade and use those ice cubes for red marks on face and dark circles …. It also helps with burns!

  5. I want to sign up for the Dec 31 FWTFL but this will be my 3rd (actually second true) round if I sign up through you will you be the coach? Last go around I signed up under a different coach than Amanda Tress and got a lot out of it…but didn’t know if you will have your own group?

    And can you tell me your face cleanser and lotion? I used to be a tried and true Mary Kay gal but they switched things up too much lately and looking to try something new…

  6. Hi Cyndi, like you were, I am a dental hygienist. I could see you loving this new toothbrush. Have you tried it? If not, use my promo code H5YPQM for a special price. I loved it so much I signed on as an ambassador.

  7. Hi sweet lady!!! I have been following you for about a month, and have gotten many fashion ideas from your blog! Thank you!!! I also purchased some Rothchild skincare for my daughter and she absolutely LOVES the products. I am going to try a few for myself. Thank you!!! the Bible verse and inspiration are my favorites from your blog though. Have a great week.

  8. Hi Cyndi! I live the e.l.f. Products especially the face primer. And their products are so inexpensive.
    Happy holidays.
