2016 was a year full of exciting makeup product launches. Some of them proved to be so good that people of the internet made them go viral! Would you like to know which makeup products were internet-famous this year?! Then keep on reading this post! 🙂
Makeup Products That Went Viral In 2016
Anastasia of Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette
This 14 coloured eyeshadow palette has a beautiful combination of warm toned shades. It’s little on the expensive side, but it’s still a must have for eye makeup lovers!
BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel 14 Color Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette
Carlo Bybel is a famous YouTube beauty guru. She launched a gorgeous eyeshadow and highlighter palette in collaboration with bh Cosmetics. The palette is priced at only $20 USD, seems like a good deal to me!
BitterLaceBeauty Rainbow / Prism Highlighter
From BuzzFeed to Cosmopolitan, this Rainbow highlighter got everyone talking about it! A lot of brands have now launched similar type of highlighters to compete with the original one by BitterLaceBeauty.
Flower Jelly Lipstick
Yes, it has a real flower inside it! It’s one of those makeup products which you’d feel like buying only because of how it looks! Otherwise, if you see its quality and price – you won’t find it that good.
Molly Cosmetics Silisponge
The silisponge by Molly Cosmetics went viral in late November, 2016. It is basically a cosmetic sponge made with PU (not silicone) which claims to blend your foundation flawlessly without soaking up any of it! The good news is that they have released another (limited edition) silisponge which is called Stardust Silisponge and has tiny glitters in it.
Pat McGrath Metalmorphosis
These are metallic pigments which you’re supposed to mix with a special type of liquid provided with them. They reflect light like disco balls! I saw them in a swatch video posted on some Facebook page and I was just mesmerized for a few minutes. You can use them as eyeshadow, highlighter or metallic lipstick!
People are going CRAZY over this palette! It was restocked on Too Faced’s website yesterday and they had to create a digital queue so that everyone gets a chance to order this palette. Guess how many people were queued for this? Around 70 thousand!
Flirt Flashes Eyelashes Applicator
What’d you call it – an eyelash gun or eyelash stapler?! Its official name is lashes applicator by the way! But YouTubers are calling it a gun because it’s shaped like so. ? This flashes thingy disposes individual lashes which you can directly put above your natural lashes. It saves you from the process of applying lash glue on individual lashes and then placing them in a correct way.
Hourglass Curator Lash Instrument
It’s not your regular mascara wand – it’s made of stainless steel! Hourglass Curator Lash Instrument is a bristle-less wand and it is designed in this way to prevent your mascara from clumping. I guess it doesn’t even come with a mascara, you get only the stainless steel wand for whooping $78 USD! So damn expensive, right? But it’s ideal for makeup artists because they can re-use it on clients after cleaning the wand properly. They won’t need to buy those disposable spoolie brushes so it’s kind of like a one time investment!
These were just a few of makeup products that went viral this year! There were so many more of them, but I didn’t want to make this post a long one. ? So I hope you makeupholics enjoyed having a look back at them! Have you bought or used any of them till now?! Let me know by commenting below!
