This should have been a post for this Wednesday before the New Year, but I didn’t have the time to write while I was in Japan. So here it is, my 2015 beauty favorites! These products didn’t necessarily come out in 2015. It more of what I purchased last year that I would repurchase or recommend to you and others. I will list them in categories so it’s easier to read. Here we go!
Hands down I love the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD foundation. It makes my skin look so good in photos and in real life. It stays on for the whole day, great texture, and it feels comfortable to wear. I took a break from it for like two weeks and when I wore it again I noticed how great it looked on my skin.
NARS. Radiant. Creamy. Concealer. I think I’ve bought three concealers last year, but they don’t compare to this one. I’ve repurchased this one before and it still hasn’t disappointed me. The texture is creamy but not sticky and has enough pigmentation to cover my dark circles and lighten up dark areas around the nose and mouth.
I haven’t reviewed this one yet for some reason, but the Laneige BB Cushion (Pore Control) makes my skin so smooth. Great for those who have combination/oily skin types. It’s a semi matte finish so your skin looks very natural. It’s really good for on the go, just pat it all over and you have poreless looking skin fast without having to prep your skin with a base or set it with something afterwards. Two thumbs up for this one.
This is a hard one because I love all of my highlighters that I’ve bought in 2015… But if I really have to choose it would be the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Opal. I die every time I put it on! It’s so gorgeous on the skin and stays on all day to keep my face looking glow-tastic.
MAC mineralize blushes. I have one called petal power and I love using it all the time. I think the Mineralize line from MAC is very good because I also like the Mineralize skinfinishes and the Mineralise foundation. The blushes start out sheer and you can easily build on it. For me blushes have to be some what sheer because It can take just one brush stroke to make me look like a clown.
Espoir No Wear Luster Lipsticks! So many glorious colors. Great texture. PIGMENTED. I really love them. I bought 4 when they came out in Summer of last year.
The Face Shop Ink Lipquid Moisture. A combination of a lip tint, lipstick, and lipgloss. Stays put all day and the pigmentation is very good as well.
Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara I think was my favorite mascara purchase last year. I think it’s better than the Benefit Roller Lash that I got in early 2015. It’s much cheaper and it does what it says it does in the packaging. I have no rubbing off and holds my curl very well.
SK-II Facial Treatment Essence. Something about it, I don’t really know, but my skin feels very nice after I use it and my skin texture is so much better since I started using it. It’s expensive, I think its worth getting.
Almond Oil is my best friend. I use it every day, it’s very rich and moisturising. Also very cheap.
So these were my faves of 2015 and I will continue to use them in 2016! I hope you all had a fantastic New Years and I can’t wait to see how this blog will bloom this year. Thank you for all your support in 2015 and I hope you will continue to visit and support me in 2016!
