WhatsApp Group Faves Volume 4 – Beauty Heroes 2019

I am so excited to bring back my WhatsApp Group Faves blog posts. If you’re new here, the idea behind these posts is that they are full of beauty and skincare recommendations from my group of friends, with absolutely no brand bias. I got the idea for this last year, when I realised that even though I blog full time and fully trust and believe in every other blogger that I follow, I will always ask my nearest & dearest for their recommendations on things before anyone else. These are the products that the girls recommend to the group as their favourites, the ones that they repurchase time and time again. I want to kick off this year by sharing the girls’ favourite beauty products of 2019. I wanted to know what product(s) they would have to repurchase immediately if it ran out, or the product that they would cry over if they lost it (this may or may not have happened one person in particular…!).

I really hope you enjoy!

WhatsApp Group Faves Volume 4 - Beauty Heroes 2019

Make Up Fanatic, 27, Kill (Born & Bred) 

Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter – “Expensive but worth it. Amazing for every day use and I haven’t found a product that gives such a good glow!” 

SOSU X Keilidh Palette – “I use it on everybody [for makeovers] and love the shadow formula.”

Glam B!tch, 27, Naas The Place

SOSU Wonder Water – “Such a game changer. I actually barely ever wear foundation at all anymore, just the tanning water. It’s just great, I never wear foundation now except for nights out.”

Blue Jean Baby, 28, Naas The Place

Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter – “It is just hands down the best for a glowy base and makes you look so fresh faced.”

Princess of Naas, 27, Naas The Place

Chanel Rouge Coco Flash (shade Chicness)- The girl who HATES wearing anything on her lips is finally converted… “It’s definitely my fave product of 2019”

Coraline, 28, London

Hylamide Glow Booster – “Atm if I wake up looking super washed out I use this. You need to be very careful with the amount as you don’t wanna over do it. Just the teeniest drop and it gives your face just a lil hint of colour, which for my ghostly skin makes me look normal-ish.”

The Fro, 27, Vancouver 

Every Single Day SPF – “Wouldn’t leave the house without my trusty Supergoop moisturiser that’s also SPF 40! It’s cruelty free too.”

Charlotte Tilbury Bar of Gold Palette – “This is gorrrrge”

Diet Coke Connoisseur, 27, Naas

Glossier Cloud Paint (shade light, cool pink) – “I’ve totally gone off highlighter but I think bronzer alone doesn’t give you that ‘glow’ so I love this as a light blush to look a bit more freshhhh.”

Mute of the Group, 27, London

L’Oreal Paradise Mascara

Fair Skinned Maiden, 28, Berlin

Rimmel Hide the Blemish Concealer – “For more than the average blemish it is so decent, blends well and rarely moves. Helpful for those who don’t have great skin.”

Tomato Lover, 28, London

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer – “Great for a concealer & at a great price. Always put it on before my foundaysh”

Le Volume Revolution de Chanel – “Chanel mascara for the win”

Bride to be, 27, Dublin

Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter and the Soleil Tan De Chanel – “I literally wear this combo every single day! Requires such little effort.”

My Mum

(side note: my Mum is not in my WhatsApp group with the girls but I just wanted to share her recommendations too!)

Chanel Les Beiges Eau De Teint

My Sister

(My sister is also not in the group but I’ll take all the recommendations I can get to be honest!)

MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick (shade Glamour Era) – “Really hydrating and a gorgeous reddish nude colour. For anyone who’s a lip balm addict, this is perfect.”


Le Correcteur de Chanel Concealer (shade 02) – “The creamiest and most hydrating concealer I’ve ever used. If they ever discontinued it, I would send a strongly worded letter to the company.”

Clinique Pretty Easy Liquid Liner – “Even though I’m not wearing as much liquid eyeliner lately as I have done in the past, I would never ever be without this in my makeup bag. It’s the only liquid eyeliner I’ve used in 5 years and I’m yet to find one that matches it.”

I really hope you enjoyed this post, there will be lots more like it! HUGE thanks to my wonderful friends for helping me put this together.
