Beauty Round-Up | 6 Products Coming With Me Into 2019!

by Holly Swasko in

Happy New Year and happy first post of 2019! I feel like the new year is always a time for fresh starts all-around. A time that screams, “out with the old, in with the new.” And while that may look a little different for everyone, one thing I personally enjoy doing is tidying up my products to make room for discovering new ones.

However, this year when it came to deciding on what I was tossing and the things that were sticking around, these 6 products stuck out to me. Some are older favorites, some are more recent finds, but they are all items I discovered in 2018 and that I use on the daily…the ones that I’m certainly not planning to junk! So here goes; the top 6 products coming with me into 2019! Check ‘em out!


  1. Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara:

    I discovered this one a few months ago after getting frustrated, cycling through what felt like a multitude of drugstore picks. I love this one because it’s buildable, not clumpy, and packs major length.

  2. Maybelline 24 Hour Superstay Foundation:

    I discovered this one after chatting with my sweet local Walgreen’s beauty consultant. And dang, did she know her stuff! I told her my skin woes, the ones I liked and didn’t like in the past, and she color-matched me and pointed me toward this one. I’m so happy she did, because its. so. good! The formula is so creamy, blendable, full cover-age, looks like my skin, doesn’t break me out, and stays put, let me tell ya. (It even survives the gym, so you know it’s that good!)

  3. Fake Bake Flawless Darker Self-Tan Liquid:

    On the pricier end, but the color and formula make me a big fan. It’s not orange by any means, and has more of a red-undertone, giving it that dark, rich bronze look. I like it because you can spray it directly on and blend or spray it on a mitt and apply. Either way makes for an easy, clean application and the best part? No streaks!

  4. Milani Baked Bronzer in “Soleil”:

    I’m all about warming my look up and achieving a nice contour - it’s one of my favorite things! I like this one because it’s super pigmented, and has a nice subtle shimmer that just melts into your skin and blends so well.

  5. Beauty Creations Cosmetics Baked Pops Highlight Palette:

    These four highlights are all so bright and reflective and are gorgeous, even when mixed together! The palette gives you a nice range of warmer, golden glows and cooler violets and white shimmer.s. (Aaaand it’s scented like candy, so there’s no losing here!)

  6. Nexxus Maxximum Finishing Mist:

    I’ve got long hair and a whole lot of it, but I like big volume. So there’s a fine line I have to walk when it comes to selecting products because the slightest bit of weight from product can weigh my style down way more than I’d like! However, this hairspray is a game-changer and has been in my routine for quite some time! allows my hair to move yet it locks waves into place, and it doesn’t build-up so quickly, allowing me to go a few days between washes. The body and volume it gives without stiffness is what keeps me coming back!
