Did you think for a second there that 2015 beauty ‘recap’ posts were over? Well… Let’s just say they’re not. 2015 was a pretty lax year in terms of beauty products, I only found a few gems that I religiously use! Here’s my belated 2015 beauty wrap-up!
I’ve already done an extensive review of this product here on my blog, but condensed, here it is. It’s awesome. Gorgeous texture and a little taste of luxury. I’ve heard rave reviews by all bloggers, so it’s definitely one to check out.
I’ve LOVED this product since I bought it earlier this year. It’s an overnight serum, which you slap on before bed. Over time, my skin got so much less dry and dehydrated. No tight feeling or dry patches on the skin, and it works like a dream. Plus it lasts a seriously long time, also Colours & Carousels reviewed it and it was brilliant.
I used this product generally over the summer, when on holiday and when in the UK (Gotta keep protected!). It’s not greasy AT ALL which is so rare with high SPFs. It also contains Titanium Dioxide, which is a known ‘non-greasy’ ingredient for foundations and SPFs. The ingredients are great for an SPF and I can’t praise it enough.
I will firstly say that do not use this underneath cream eyeshadow. It goes a bit funky and it will slide off really quickly (I have no idea why). Under powder eyeshadow, it’s brilliant. Whilst quite expensive, it’s so good and lasts a seriously long time. If other eyeshadow primers have failed you, this could be one to try.
Many ‘big’ beauty bloggers have also raved about this foundation. It’s an acquired taste, but it’s a great foundation for everyday wear (despite the pricetag). This bottle is virtually empty – which says a lot. And comes in great pale, yellow toned shades!
Why have I never tried this?! The formula is very similar to MAC’s fluidline and honestly, I prefer it. Simply, because of the difference in price-tag. It’s very creamy and good if you don’t want to splash out on a gel liner. Try this for your first gel-liner?
Crazy volume. So much volume quickly. That’s all.
In the picture, these two lipsticks look very similar but the formula is completely different. The Bourjois lip product is an extremely glossy almost, viva glam cyndi shade. (Throwback!) The gloss fades after a while but it does stay for a good 3-5 hours.
I get so many compliments every time I wear this! A fabulous hot pink, bordering on red colour that makes me feel like I’m ready to take on the world. Plus the formula is so good.
What are your favourites of 2015?!
