2016. What a time to be alive.

This year has been quite the ride, but so far it seems like we're doing okay - so cheers to that.

I've rounded up my absolute top five holy grail beauty products of this crazy wild year. Check out why I'm loving each one below & click 'em to shop:

1. Nudestix Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil in Icon

I'm actually having a hard time explaining why I love this product and shade as much as I do because I'm actually just obsessed with it. The second I tried this shade on I wanted to go to bed with it. No joke. It's the perfect combination of mauvy browns, reds, and even slight purples for the more unreal bold lip I have ever seen. It's definitely the star of any makeup look, which makes going out so much easier with a swipe of mascara and slightly filling in the brows. Plus it's super soft on the lips without getting dry and yucky like a lot of mattes do, and looks good on pretty much anyone. Use code NITSANRBB15 for 15% off!

2. R+Co Tinsel Smoothing Oil

My hair is not the healthiest it's ever been, so frizz is a major buzzkill. I apply a little pump onto my ends after a wash or brush for super smooth locks and major minimized frizz. That sounds like a mouthful but it's a super quick and easy fix without weighing down your hair. Plus it smells super good. Shop here.

3. OUAI Finishing Crème

To tame the mane. A dime-size amount brushed through from the bottom up does the trick, and wiping off any leftovers to smooth down baby hairs. Before or after blowdrying/straightening your hair, this one's a keeper. Shop here.

4. Glossier Super Bounce

Filled with hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5, this Super got you covered in the morning with a swipe. Helps with even makeup application, strengthens and moisturizes the skin in a super cute little bottle. So blogger. Shop here.

5. Kate Somerville EradiKate

Pimples be gone. A dab of this pink stuff over any breakout - old or new, and you'll already feel it working. Give it a day or two and it's gone forever. Peace. Shop here!
