Going into 2019, there are a handful of beauty products and brands that I’m looking forward to trying. The hype around Drunk Elephant since the brand’s arrival to the UK via Cult Beauty and SpaceNK has been immense. There’s not a day goes by that a review of the ‘clean’ skincare brand doesn’t pop up on my Twitter feed. I have to admit, I was a little disappointed by both the high price point that accompanied the products and the absence of the T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial, however, after reading countless positive reviews it’s definitely a brand I plan to try in 2019. Sunday Riley is another iconic skincare range that I’ve been lusting over for months. I’m hoping to treat myself to their bestselling Luna Sleeping Night Oil, a retinol-rich night-time treatment, for my 30th birthday in a few weeks, and finally the LIXIRSKIN Universal Emulsion is a lightweight multi-tasking lotion that claims to deliver dewy hydration to your face, lips and hands that hopefully I’ll also get around to trying next year.
Moving on to makeup, I’ve added the Morphe X Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette to my online basket several times but never actually gone through with the purchase. I seem to always get sidetracked by new releases such as the ABH Soft Glam and the Charlotte Tilbury Stars in Your Eyes Eyeshadow Palettes. I do like the variety of shades it contains and despite this year’s controversy surrounding their Vault collection, I’ve heard nothing but positive feedback about this mammoth 35 pan palette.
I’ve been intrigued by the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder collection for a while now but have been hesitant about investing over £40 on such a tiny product without swatching it first, regardless of how favourable its reviews are. That being said, I can’t help but seriously lust over the limited edition Ambient Lighting Edit Volume 4 now available at SpaceNK, perhaps 2019 will finally be the year I take the plunge.
I’m also desperate to try Fenty Beauty. I’ve been wanting to get my hands on Rhianna’s collection of Killawatt Freestyle Highlighters, Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation and Lip Paint in Stunna ever since their UK launch back in 2017. Once again, not being able to swatch or try out the products beforehand, plus having to fork out a £5 delivery fee to order from Harvey Nichols has put me off from experiencing what the brand has to offer. Finally, two products I hope to try in 2019 are the Nars Climax Mascara and Charlotte Tilbury Collagen Lip Bath.
