Best in Beauty 2019 – Top 10 Products

By Kimberly

It’s time for the Best in Beauty for 2019! Part of the reason we try new things is the thrill of the hunt. We all want to discover a holy grail or made for me product and are willing to gamble on the unknown. At times, the risk pays off, and we find things worth talking about. Those are the items we want to shout about from the rooftops. Deal shoppers do not always try things the moment they release, because we like to read reviews and wait for sales. The items on this list were not necessarily released in 2019. I did not discover their greatness until 2019 though. This is a list of the 10 best products I tried for the first time this year. While it is amazing when we find drugstore items that perform as well as high-end ones, and I sample products from low-end to luxury with that goal in mind, this list is only indicative of the best products (not the best in their price range).

Many Sephora Favorites on Sale Now and the 2019 Give Me More Lip Review

Sephora dropped a lot of favorites into the sale section today. I’m here to bring you my Sephora Favorites 2019 Give Me More Lip review. As these are among my favorite purchases all year, I also want to quickly go over the others. Which ones are worth it? Some are worth it even at full price, so the discount only sweetens the deal. Others need to get discounted further before I think they’re worth it. I like when the kits are a mixture of full-size and sample products. My limit when they are all samples is $45, which prices me out of some kits.

Sephora Favorites Superstars 2019 Review, A 2019 Holiday Bonus Sale Recommendation

I want to offer my 2019 Sephora Favorites Superstars Review, A 2019 Holiday Bonus Sale Recommendation review, because the Sephora 2019 Fall Bonus Sale runs through the 11th. This is something worthy of adding to your shopping list. After some disappointing Sephora Favorites pricing (like the 2019 Sun Safety Kit), I feel this one is priced well. Getting it on sale only adds to the deal. Sephora Favorites are one of my favorite things to purchase whenever there is a mix of full-size and sample products. My limit when they are all samples is $45, which prices me out of some kits. This one comes in under $45 and has two full-size products.

Core Collection: My Summer 2019 Favorites

Fall is officially here, so it is time to go over my favorites from the 2019 summer season. I like to call these my core collection items, because I find myself reaching for them over similar products in my stockpiles. These are items I am still working on, so they will not make the Empties article for this season. Each is still worthy of discussion, so this is the place I like to do that. Items I am still in love with once I empty them become FabuFinds. While I cannot promise I will ever finish these (some products expire before I can empty them) and I cannot promise I will still love them enough to label them as FabuFinds upon completion, I loved them throughout this season. Many of these items are serious contenders for my Best of the Year article. There were six items I really enjoyed this summer.

My Sephora Milk Makeup birthday gift review is ready. This is one of the two VIB and Rouge exclusives for the 2019 Sephora Birthday gifts.

Birchbox Limited Edition Box How to Hygge Review

Limited Edition Boxes are my favorite items to purchase from Birchbox. These are a mixture of full and sample sized items that usually fit a specific box theme. All boxes have a value far greater than the cost so they are a great deal when the items you want to keep exceed the value of what you’re paying. Better boxes sell out quickly, but the ones that linger will occasionally pop up in the sale section for 30% off. Aces sometimes get 40% off on sale items. Predicting which ones will sell out is not always easy so I buy the ones I really want close to the release date. If you’re on the fence because of price, wait it out.

Sephora Favorites Limited Edition Kit Glow For It Review

See all 2019 Sephora Promotions, Sales, GWP, Deals, Promo Codes, and Events.


A new Sephora Favorites Limited Edition Set, Glow For It, is out. I love when Sephora puts out a new Favorites Set. These sets retail for a lot less than the value of the items inside. As long as the items you plan on keeping exceed the value of the price you pay for the set, it is a good deal. This is one of my favorite ways to sample new items, and I like the sets even more when they have some full-sized items inside. While paying for samples is something I do often with subscription boxes, I limit how often I pay for samples in sets. The mystery of subscription boxes and desire to get things I would never purchase prevails in that case. When a set only has samples and costs over $20, I am less likely to purchase it. Paying for samples is not always a bad thing, especially when sets have items you really want to try, and you have not been able to get them for free or as a GWP.

Birchbox Discovery Kit 2018 The Lip Service

Birchbox puts out a lot of high-quality Discovery Kits. These are smaller versions of the Limited Edition Boxes and typically come in a clear TSA approved travel bag. A discovery kit is a themed bag with multiple brands curated by Birchbox. Some discovery kits, particularly the ones with all samples, are not worth purchasing. Of course, I usually buy them for hard to get items I really want to try or already love. As long as the value of the items I am keeping exceeds the amount I am paying, I will usually purchase the kit. Others are more than worth it.
