If you follow me on Instagram (I mean, if you don’t…you should do so here) you might have seen me hauling the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette in my recent Instagram Stories. You will also have heard my excitement at finally having my hands on this palette. It’s definitely one I’ve had my eye on since it launched last year but couldn’t fully justify buying as it wasn’t different enough from anything else in my collection. But you know how it is, the January sales start, you’ve got some Christmas money burning a hole in your pocket, the stars align and you splurge #NoRegrets.
Last year I pretty much (as it seems many other bloggers have done) sacked off monthly favourites posts in favour of the odd ‘Currently Loving’ type post. But when it comes to the end of the year, I do like to look back at what has been a consistent favourite and if anything has made it to Holy Grail status. So here I’ll give you an overview of my top discoveries of 2017. Grab a cuppa, this is going to be a long post.
When it comes to eyeshadow palettes, in my opinion, you can’t beat Morphe for the quality vs affordability. So when their collaboration was announced with Jaclyn Hill, I knew I had to have it. After some Beauty Bay website drama on launch day, I did manage to order one. Now as you’d expect, the palette sold out straight away, hence the chaos on the BB website but I did think it was worth still sharing my review in case it comes back in stock soon.
