Best Beauty Buys 2016 BEST

We always love a good multitasking beauty buy, and these polishes from Sally Hansen house the best kind of hidden surprise. Each lacquer contains a dose of argan oil, which keeps your nail beds hydrated with zero effort!

best beauty buys 2016

ONE. The products must deliver the promised results without any negative side effects. Remember that MAC Eye Gloss that you love so much, yet always seemed to make your eyes itchy and red? Now you see my point. The best beauty products do what it says it will do without compromise.

Amazon is the go-to beauty resource for those who are just too damn busy to get to the store. It's a life-saver when you've just run out of your favorite mascara or you're on your last roll of toilet paper (yeah, that's real life). The deliveries come straight to your door within two days or less if you have a Prime membership. There's no need to put on actual clothes and brave the crowds. And when you fill up your shopping cart on your next makeup and skincare haul, these are the items you should definitely include. The 20 products ahead are the bestsellers from Amazon's beauty category for 2016. This greatest hits list has old-school favorites like Aquaphor and Dove, but there are also some innovative new picks like Blinc and Wunderbrow. Keep reading to shop them all.

If you've ever used Burt's Bees lip balm, then you know that one tube is not enough. You need one for your purse, one for your bathroom, one for your desk, and one waiting in the wings. This superfruit box was one of the top three beauty buys on Amazon in 2016.

Every year, beauty pros (including artists, marketers, editors, and chemists) gather for the most exciting night in the industry: the Cosmetic Executive Women Beauty Insider Product Demonstration. This invite-only event showcases all the hottest launches from the previous year, allowing experts to test the formulas, admire the packaging, and ask any questions they have about the item. Then, after lugging home (and playing with!) a huge bag of the products seen that night, everyone casts their votes on which items are worthy of being declared "best" in their category.

WWD announced the 2016 CEW Insider Award winners, and there was a refreshing amount of surprising victories. Who would have expected that the two award-winning antiaging products would be masks? We're particularly impressed that a dry shampoo beat out traditional formulas in its category! Read on and shop the very best beauty swag from 2016.

MacQueen Cosmetics Creamy Lip Tint in Light PinkThe packaging reminds me of Perricone MD's makeup. This dries creamy-matte and has very good staying power, fading only during a greasy meal. Pigmentation is 100%. This is a very pretty purpley pink - on the paler end of my comfort zone, but I can make do with a lip liner. I have done an FOTD wearing this colour in my previous post here. Swatches are further below.Price: $6.56Buy it here. Tosowoong Blackhead Nose Pack of eightTosowoong is a Korean skincare brand I love - they have great anti-acne products. I like using these nose strips on weekends, whether they actually work or not. Will be keeping these for weekend pampering sessions.Price: $2.90 for the packBuy it here. Berrisom Oops Tint Cheek CushionThis peach liquid-cream blush dispenses the same way Too Faced Melted lipsticks do - from the tube through a cushion/sponge applicator to disperse the product. This works better for me than cream/liquid blushes where you have to apply with a brush, because the "cushion" blends out the product better. FOTD with this soon. Swatches further below.Price: $10.36Buy it here. Beauty People 10 Seconds Auto Pencil EyelinerComes with a sharpener at the other end. I got the shade Diamond Brown, which is a very deep brown with microshimmer. It comes out nicely, creamy enough, and does not smudge on my oily lids - win. It stays on decently all day. I know I will be reaching for this quite a lot in the near future.Price: $6.90Buy it here.Etude House Collagen Eye PatchI have used these before - they are great for a boost of hydration and comfort for dry under-eye areas, and also brighten the skin a bit. Korean brands own the sheet mask and hydrating patch markets, and this one is a prime example of what makes them so good.Price: $3.71Buy it here. Tony Moly I'm Real Mask Sheet I received the Lemon mask, for brightening. I have tried the Rice mask from this range before, and it was one of the best sheet masks I have ever used. I expect the Lemon mask to be equally good. Will try it out over the weekend. Price: $3.71Buy it here. Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask This is my favourite product in this box, and it was quite a surprise. You know I love overnight sleeping masks for the face - this is a sleeping mask for the lips! It is as smooth and creamy as a body butter, but definitely not greasy. Nor does it leave awful patches on the pillows. And, believe me, in one use, I have lost all remnants of flaky skin, and my lipstick has never looked this smooth. Will be using this two or three times a week, and WILL be repurchasing this forever.Price: $19.85 - a brilliant deal.Buy it here. Berrisom Oops My Lip TintA fun orange lip tint that will look good through the Summer. This leaves a nice stain that lasts all day, and you can build the colour to blood orange. This deserves its own post - stay tuned for a review.Price: $7.51Buy it here. Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Korean BB creams have a LOT more coverage than mainstream brands. This is no exception. You get as much coverage as you do from a regular matte-finish foundation. There are, however, only four shade options available. I wish I had got Honey Beige, which is the deepest, but I got Light Beige. I mix this with a little bronzer to get it down to my shade. Scroll down further for a full-face makeup look with this. Price: $12.26Buy it here. Etude House Color My Brow Since I have inherited eyebrows that refuse to be even remotely arched (THANKS, DAD!), I love the way Koreans do their brows - unarched, but thick and natural. This is actually a dupe for Benefit Gimme Brow. The shade isn't jet black, just like Benefit, but jet black would just be overkill on my already black and thick brows. A nice, affordable option. Price: $10.36Buy it here.Swatches of the makeup products are below.From left: Etude House BB Cream, Berrisom Cheek Tint, MacQueen Lip Tint, Berrisom Lip Tint, Etude House Color My Brows, Beauty People Eyeliner. Yesterday, I showed you a full-face makeup look I did with the Etude House BB Cream and the brow gel, the MacQueen lip tint, and the Beauty People eyeliner. In case you missed it, go here for the full post, including breakdown of all products, and more photographs. Don't want to gimme another pageview? Here is the look. Verdict and where and how to buy YesStyle Top 10 Korean Beauty selectionWith 10 full-sized products in here, of which six products are makeup, what's not to LOVE about this selection? I particularly love that there are well-known brands such as Etude House, Tony Moly and Laneige in here. My favourite products are the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask, which all of us NEED in our lives, and the Berrisom Oops My Lip Tint.There is everything you will need for a full-face makeup look. I also love the skincare selection of sheet and patch masks for the eyes, nose, lips and whole face!If I had to nitpick, it would be the lack of snail-based skincare. I would have loved to see something like Mizon Snail Intensive Repair Ampoule, or Benton Snail Bee Essence - snail mucin is Korean skincare's USP. But that's just me being whingy. To buy this selection, go here. You can actually pick and choose shades of your choice, so if you do not like the lip or blush shades, or want a deeper BB cream, you can do so!If you would like to look at YesStyle's current Korean Beauty sampler box, go here.
