Rati’s Top 56 Skincare and Makeup Favourites 2016

Hi Everyone, 🙂

I made an all time’s favourite list of Rati’s Top 200 products a while back. A reader requested me to make a list of my favourite products from 2016. I have tried so many amazing products this year. I would be reviewing many more before the year ends. So may be by December end I’d add more products and republish the list. But at the moment I definitley want to share this list with you all. I would absolutely love to hear your favourites as well. 🙂 This list is not in any particular order. Just going by my stash and listing things out for you all. 🙂 Also, all the products are linked to their original reviews. So you can click the titles to read detailed reviews of all the products. 🙂 I am so excited to share so much more with you all! 🙂
beauty favs 2016

  1. Chantecaille Loose Powder : It is one of the finest loose powders I have in my kit. One of my most amazing discoveries of this year was this brand.
  2. Chantecaille Anti Smog Tinted Moisturiser : Almost finished using this one. Liked it so much for everyday wear this year around.
  3. Holika Holika Pig-Nose clear black head peeling massage gel : One of the cutest nose scrubs ever. Yet to find a replacement.
  4. L’oreal Telescopic Mascara : One of the nicest thing about this mascara is that the wand is so thin and it really gets to the roots of the lashes and coats them.
