Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

Lots of places are doing their "year in review" (usually with music, but I've seen some others too!), so I thought it would be fun if we did a BIC Beauty Wrapped 😊 

 

I personally draw a lot of inspiration (and sometimes enabling) from the Community, and would love to see everyone's beauty wrapped! I've come up with a few categories, but feel free to add and skip over ones that don't apply to you!

 

BIC WRAPPED 2023 CATEGORIES:

 

  • Your Top 3 Brands This Year (this can be divided into categories, like skincare, makeup, haircare and fragrance, or you can do an overall ranking!)
  • Top 3 Most Used Product Types (mascara, fragrance, liquid blush, hair masks, etc)
  • Top 3 Most Used Products
  • Top 3 Most Repurchased Items
  • Top "BIC Made Me Do It" Product
  • Number of Empties (if you track that sort of thing!)
  • Top New Product of 2023
  • Top 3 Beauty Trends You Participated In
  • Top Re-Entry Product (something you maybe haven't used in a while, but has been rediscovered and re-added to your rotation!)

@danielledanielle I love the ND concealer, too. It's such a great formula!

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

Indeed @makeitup305 .  I like that it's thick enough to use alone, but not cakey, and that it sets itself.

 

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@danielledanielle I have never used the Nars eye primer.   I may have to try it

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@CorgiMommy, I ended up trying initially as part of a GWP.  It works best with powdered shadows and when I use Danessa Myricks Beauty Colorfix Eye, Cheek & Lip Cream Pigment - Nudes Collection Nude 8 , it gives me a better wear.

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@danielledanielle so many good products in your wrapped! I love that you included brushes - I feel

Like every year I fixate on a new category, and 2024 is feeling like brushes and tools. I realized that it wasn’t so much my technique that needed improving as much as it was using the right tools for the products I have. Are there any eye/concealer brushes you recommend? I’ve been using a sponge but I find it creases in some areas and I know there must be a better way

 

Also LOVE that you’ve been under painting. I’ve been interested but a little intimidated. Am I overthinking it?? 

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@cianni, yeah I feel like brushes have come a long way.  Technique definitely helps, but with the right tools\brushes, it's less required.  For concealer I try to match the concealer's performance to the brush.  The thicker the concealer, the more diffusion I look for, so SEPHORA COLLECTION PRO Concealer Brush #57 is for when I use concealer more like foundation and SEPHORA COLLECTION PRO Concealer Brush #71 when I need to pat it in or precision.  For a fast dryer like the Natasha Denona Hy-Glam Brightening & Hydrating Medium to Full Coverage Crease Proof Serum Concealer ... , that one works best for me with sponge + fingers.  Other concealers I use that are medium-full - PAT McGRATH LABS Sublime Perfection Concealer M18 , Dior Backstage Concealer 4N and NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer - I may use a foundation brush instead, such as Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Full-Bodied Foundation Brush 110 , because it's dense but has that finger like application quality.

 

Underpainting has been around!  Don't fear it!  You may not need to map your face as intensely.  I have had people contour my nose in a makeover, and I never like it, so I don't bother with doing that.  I focus more on my cheek and forehead.  I also use two brushes vs one because I feel like it's less muddy looking, but if you have a brush that stipples nicely, you could easily just use one.

 

 

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@danielledanielle Thank you so much for the detailed explanation! I do have a nice stippling brush that I’ve never used, but i think I’m gonna attempt under painting with it. Based on what I’ve seen in the threads, looks like you inspired at least a few people to try under painting this year, so I’m feeling confident 🙌🏼

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

Fun idea! 

  • Your Top 3 Brands This Year (this can be divided into categories, like skincare, makeup, haircare and fragrance, or you can do an overall ranking!)   Tatcha, Natasha Denona, hmm I did buy a few things Gucci so I'll say them.

 

  • Top 3 Most Used Product Types (mascara, fragrance, liquid blush, hair masks, etc) Eyeshadow, Perfume, lip balm.

 

 

 

 

  • Number of Empties (if you track that sort of thing!) 126 as of end of November. My best year to date.

 

 

  • Top 3 Beauty Trends You Participated In None.

 

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@Samtian did you like the Gwen Stefani palette,  I was a little disappointed in it?

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@CorgiMommy It's ok. It makes really good crease shades for me to wear to work. 

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

That is an impressive amount of empties @Samtian 

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@danielledanielle Thank you!!

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@Samtian Oooooh so many products in here I’ve been thinking about for a while! The GXVE palette has been sitting in my loves for a while, but for some reason I haven’t been able to commit to it. 

you had an INCREDIBLE panning year, over 100 is already a huge accomplishment. Would you say these are mainly skincare, haircare or makeup? I struggle with the makeup category, so tips are appreciated haha 

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@cianni Thank you! Mostly skin, hair and perfumes. Makeup is a struggle for me as well lol.

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@Samtian Perfumes are hard to work through too! I’m with you on makeup though, somehow I tend to accumulate faster than I work through them… except brow products and mascara. I feel like those are two makeup categories I’m consistently panning (although in the case of mascara, sometimes they just dry out or I’ve been using them for a suspiciously long time, so it’s time for to go, even if they’re never truly “finished”)

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@cianni I definitely know that struggle! Same with perfume samples, accumulate before I can get rid of them. I had this plan to use 5 before getting more...that hasn't worked out.

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@Samtian Even the samples take a decent amount of time to go through! I have an absolutely scary amount just sitting in my drawers LOL

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@cianni They do lol! I stopped counting after I got 198 sample vials lol. I think I've done 15 this year. 

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

Great idea @cianni! I'll have to think on this and answer later. Can't wait to see what everyone's favorites this year are 🙂

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@AznAngelLiz I need to think on this one also

Re: Wrapped 2023: Your Beauty Year in Review

@AznAngelLiz it was harder than I thought to reflect on the entire year, so many products from earlier in the year that I forgot about till now 😅 also I’m not sure if you remember from Galentines earlier this year, but you gifted me that MAC Cosmetics Lip Pencil Cork !! I’ve since repurchased hahah,

it’s HEAVY rotation for me ❤️
