We rounded up the best beauty products of 2017

Best of Beauty products

Add to cart.

It’s been a busy year in beauty, with an endless stream of new skincare, makeup and haircare releases. But there were a few products that really stood out from the rest. Here are our favourites.

Brand: Miss Frankie
Name: 5 Free Nail Polish
From: missfrankie.com.au
Price: $22
Miss Frankie’s ridiculously lovely packaging caught our attention, but that was just the start. The Australian-made polish boats a formula free of common toxic ingredients often found in other varnishes. When put to the test, Miss Frankie’s pastel shades were quick-drying and leave a super smooth finish.

Brand: Mecca Max
Name: Press Refresh Blotting Paper
From: mecca.com.au
Price: $10
Hands down, the most useful product we’ve ever had on our person. Not only do the little pink sheets soak up any extra facial oil, they do so without displacing foundation and other makeup products. It’s also just extremely satisfying to hold up to the light and check out each sheet’s effectiveness.

Brand: NARS
Name: Liquid Blush
From: mecca.com.au
Price: $44
2017 was a big year for NARS, but our favourite release from the brand was the addition of a liquid blush to its cult Orgasm range. Pair it with a powder blush to amp up its pigment, or wear alone for a sheer, dewy flush.

Brand: Charlotte Tilbury
Name: Unisex Healthy Glow Hydrating Tint
From: charlottetilbury.com.au
Price: $50
This product grabbed our attention with its claim to be unisex, but stayed in our lives for its ability to deliver the ultimate summer glow.

Brand: ELEVEN Australia
Name: Dry Powder Volume Paste
From:  elevenaustralia.com
Price: $24.95
Eleven Australia’s Dry Powder Volume Paste entered our rotation of hair products that we use on the regular. The paste works to lift roots and give your hair that grit and texture that seems to only come the second day after washing.

Brand: Stila
Name: One Step Primer
From: mecca.com.au
Price: $52
The perfect no-fuss priming product, this goodie joined the ranks of Stila’s cult One Step series earlier in the year. Points scored for a hydrating formula that creates a smooth base, sans oily residue.
