2015 Beauty Favourites

Hey beaut's!

As we are now well into the new year I thought I'd do a little round up of a few beauty products that have become either favourites of mine or staple products that I repurchased over and over during 2015. To be honest I could of put silly amounts of products in this post as I really have loved a heck of a lot of beauty products in 2015 but here are a handful that I have chosen.... 

Firstly I have to start with my beloved Real Techniques Brushes and Complexion Sponge, without them I'm sure my makeup would look a horrible cakey mess. My collection started off with the famous 'Buffing Brush' a few years ago and ever since then I've not turned back and I've tried to collect as many of the brushes as possible and now have a pretty awesome collection! They honestly do make a huge difference in the way my makeup looks and feels, everything just looks so flawless and I'm sure I'll be loving each and every brush throughout 2016 too.

I couldn't of been without my trusty MAC Quad in 2015, it contains the shades All That Glitters, Satin Taupe, Naked Lunch and Omega and I use every single shade within the palette more or less every other day as I love them so much, theres something about MAC eye shadows that just really work for me, theres no creasing, no fallout, they are so easy to work with, blend out a dream and last really well. Next up is my liquid liner bestie the Soap & Glory Supercat Liner, as far as liquid liners go this is so easy to use, super black, long lasting and I'd definitely recommend it for beginners because of it's pen shaped nib, it just feels like your drawing he he. The Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara was a huge hit with me 2015, I actually waited a good few months after this launched to try it because me and Maybelline mascara's never get a long for some odd reason but the Lash Sensational is amazing, it's much like Benefits Roller Lash and give me so much length and separation but also volumises and defines at the same time, I love it! 

I think Barry M had a great year in 2015, we saw them launch lots of new makeup lines and most of them I loved, especially their Chisel Cheeks Contour Kit and their Flawless Light Reflecting Concealer. I've spoken about the contour kit so many times but it just has the most amazing cool toned contour shade which I've actually hit pan on and the bronzer and highlighter are fab to. The Flawless Light Reflecting Concealer I've actually repurchased four times during 2015 so I think that pretty much speaks for itself.

For lips in 2015 I fell deeply in love with two lipstick in particular, the first one is my trusty MAC Brave Lipstick which I got for my birthday last August, it's honestly the perfect shade of lipstick that goes with any makeup look for any occasion and can be worn anytime of day and honestly I've been wearing it pretty much everyday since August! Before my addiction to my MAC lippie started I wore my L'Oreal Color Riche Lipstick in the shade Fuchsia Declaration constantly, it's such a pretty pink shade and the formula of these L'Oreal lipsticks is insanely good!

Lastly I have a skin favourite and a hair favourite! For skin,  I found Superdrugs Simply Pure Hydrating Serum on offer one day so I thought I'd give it a go and I love it, it's just as good as high end serums I've tried and if you have dry sensitive skin I'd highly recommend it. For hair, it has to be my Tangle Teezer, I have long thick hair which I wear wavy or curly most days so it tends to get super knotty and tangled and my trusty Tangle Teezer makes such light work of getting through it all without pulling half of the hair on my head out. 

What where your 2015 beauty favourites beaut's? I'd love to know!

  7. It's so hard to narrow down yearly favourites! I also really enjoyed the RT Miracle Complexion Sponge :) I keep seeing people post about their custom MAC quads, but I don't really use mine that much. It makes me think I need to switch up the shades a bit!
