2017 Beauty, Here We Come!

On this New Year’s Eve, I’m thinking about a lot of things. Mainly, I am thinking about how far 2016 has taken us here at Amalie.

From introducing our newest WINK packaging last January after a fall of rigorous testing here in China and in your homes, to the launch of our long-awaited 2nd product SHINE in June, followed by a summer of weekly blogs about our Farm to Face products (and a summer of farming, for me!), which finally led to the November 1st launch of our homegrown Farm to Face products, only after a record-setting October sales for our Buy One Give One for the Cure Campaign.. it’s been a crazy year!

Definitely the craziest one yet.

..And that’s just what happened here at Amalie.

So on this New Year’s Eve, I want to take a moment to say thank you.

I’d also like to say GOODBYE to 2016.

And in true beauty blogger fashion, I’m going to kiss 2016 goodbye with all the beauty trends that I’d like to see -stay- in 2016, followed by the beauty trends we can prepare to embrace in 2017. Here we go!


Goodbye 2016 Beauty!

Goodbye 100 coats of challenges..

Goodbye contouring via Louboutins, stacks of money, and any other item you can get your hands on..

No hate to Skelotim, though. He’s amazing.


Goodbye excessively pigmented everything..

Goodbye wasting every minute of free time obsessing over other peoples’ lip jobs, nips and tucks..
