2015 Beauty Favourites

IMG_4230It’s been an amazing year of buying probably a lot more beauty than I needed. My 2015 Beauty favourites are filled with new discoveries and much-loved products.

2015 beauty favouritesIt was the year I fell in love with Lush, bought my first Urban Decay palette and my first ever YSL foundation. I mean since I started blogging my beauty collection has tripled! 2015 I’ve found myself indulged with lots of new brands I’d never thought of using and I just loved how many amazing products came out!

Since I’m in love with Lush now, I thought I would share my love for The Comforter (here). Whether in the shower cream or bubble bar, its well and truly a dream. I could go on and on how much I love all their products but I had to narrow them all down to this bottle. A cuddle in a bottle – too right it is.

I endlessly talk about how much I love the YSL (hereTouche Elcat foundation. It’s definitely been my best discovery in 2015 and I will certainly use it for years to come, I just know I will. Its got to be my favourite foundation (I do wear others still).

I’ve just realised I’ve got three blushers in this post, so much pink!! Well I bought my first Nars product in 2015, and it was no other than the Super Orgasm blush (here). Filled with gold speckles, it’s a beautiful pink. Bourjois Paris blusher in Rose D’or is also very similar – if you’re wanting a cheaper alternative. I’m not gonna lie the Benefit Hervana blusher is more beautiful in the box than on the cheeks personally, but it’s still one of my all time favourites.

For lipsticks my gosh it has to be MAC Velvet Teddy right?! (here) For the last few months its been my holy grail, literally hasn’t not been on my lips and its nearly all gone. Yep, 2016 will definitely see another purchase of it. Urban Decay in Manic (here) has also nearly ran out so will also be on my to buy list. If your after a stunning deep red with purple tones – get it!

So I bought my first Urban Decay palette (here). Smoky. Enough said! Before this palette I was a disaster with eye shadow, I couldn’t do a good job but now I’m addicted to experimenting with colours right out of my comfort zone! I wonder if they do a Smoky 2 this year?!

Another Urban Decay beauty is their illuminated highlighter (here) in Aura. I wanted their Christmas edition and I was so gutted they sold out. This has lasted me nearly a year and it’s still going strong, it’s so glittery and just perfect for girls who wanna sparkle. YSL Touche Eclat (here) has been one of my loved products for about three years now, I don’t give it enough credit for brightening those dark circles and just blends lovely with my YSL foundation.

 Benefits newest mascara Roller Lash (here) also ended up on my favourites. Its one of them mascara that need a little getting used to, once it dries a little its the perfect mascara to lengthen and separate. After nearly buying the ABH Dip brow, I found a cheaper alternative: Freedom. Their Brow Pomade (here) is my favourite brow product, a gel that’s long-lasting and looks natural.

And finally I’ve tried so many primers but I’m loving Smashbox Photo Ready. It’s a clear gel and like most primers makes your skin feel all lovely and soft. I just notice when I have this one on, my foundation sets better and lasts longer than others.

So there you have it, my 2015 beauty favourites. I’m so excited to see what gets released this year!
