My Favourite Beauty Products of 2015


Hi Guys, today I thought I would put together a post that showed you the priciest I have been loving and using the most through the year 2015. Some of these products I have used for a few years but still thought I'd feature them as I 100% would recommend them! 

So here is a run down of my favourite products.

Best Perfumes: Get yourself smelling as fresh as a daisy with Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream. This perfume is a combination of floral and fruity. It has a very delicate but rich fragrance with an essence of grapefruit and jasmine. What I like is that one spray goes the whole day. 

Or you can go for a more exotic smell with the DKNY Be Delicious Eau de Parfum. I got this last year and have re-bought it twice since. If you are a fan of an apple essence you'll adore this. So fresh and fruity with hints of cucumber, still having that pretty smell with dashes of rose and magnolia. Definitely one you have to try!

Best Lipstick: I think I must of bought the Mac Honey Love lipstick about 20 million times this year. At first when I purchased it I wasn't really sure about it but now I struggle to wanna wear anything else. It also works lush as a pair with lip liner spice. Definitely that perfect nude. 

Best Under Eye Products: I have recently just picked up my 2nd Prep and Prime Highlighter Pen. This is definitely up there with my favourite purchases. It just leaves such a beautiful, bright underage without getting into creases. I use the colour light boost, this brings such a light, sheer wash of colour to my make up looks and lasts all day. It's not cakey and blends in perfectly to all my face products. It is also the perfect touch up for anything you want to hide. 

My second favourite eye product is the Simple Kind to Eyes Soothing Eye Balm. I never used to believe that under eye creams did anything, especially as I was already using moisturiser under my eyes I didn't wanna pack on anything unnecessary. I love the Simple brand and they also product products that are extra kind to the skin and leave such a noticeable difference. I use this before I go to bed at night and I can feel the balm tightening the skin straight after putting it on. It reduces the puffiness and the dark under eye circles and a plus is that it is perfect for sensitive skin, especially as that under eye area is so delicate. I wouldn't use any other eye balm and have been using this religiously every night. 

Favourite Nails: YAY, I bought my first O.P.I nail polish a few months ago and I definitely adore this brand already. As I work in a hospital I never can paint my nails or get them done but I still can pay attention to my toes! On my days off if I'm going out or have plans I tend to rely on stick on acrylics. I have recently just been getting bare ones so I can use this gorgeous colour. It's called 'Do you take lei away' and its a nice nude/stone colour. Glides on beautifully and dries immediately. I will definitely be purchasing more of the O.P.I colours for the future. 

Best Lashes: I literally rely on this lashes on a day to day basis. I never wear any others, unless I want a more dramatic look. These are the Eyelure #143. These are from the exaggerate range and are double layered, wispy lashes...PERFECT, right?! They are the perfect blend of lashes and are perfect for an everyday subtle look. These last me loads of wears when cleaned properly. I tend to not apply mascara to my false lashes as I find it shortens their life and makes them look clogged up. I will be re-purchasing these lashes for years to come! (unfortunately sold out at the minute but keep looking!)

Best Foundation: I started off wearing Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation a few years ago. I did go through a stage of trying loads of the different popular foundations. However the last year I went back to the double wear and I thoroughly believe that I will never change from this foundation unless it was discontinued (TOUCH WOOD). This foundation honestly is my holy grail. I love how a tiny bit goes a long way. It is medium to full coverage but I'd say it was a definite full coverage. This foundation does what it says and does last 15 hours. I'd say even more than 15 hours! It clings to the skin and stays flawless all day without clinging to the dry patches. It blends so well with concealers and contour powders. It has SPF 10 and 100% stays fresh through the hottest of heats and if your a make up wearer in the gym this will be your best friend. I wear colour Honey Bronze.

Favourite Hair Mask: I love to use a hair mask as I wear a full head of hair extensions most of the time and I feel like this is a step in my shower routine that refreshes and brings my natural hair back to life. I also use this on my hair extensions from time to time and it works a treat. This particular hair mask I have been loving is the Nicky Clarke Deep Treat Moisture Lock Mask. This mask has kerastrength and consists of patchouli oil and macadamia. This is perfect for people with dry or coarse hair, I don't but I wanted a really deep condition. I honestly never have felt my hair feel like how this mask makes it feel in  my life. I was drying my hair after removing the mask and it was so silky and shiny and felt like I'd just walked out of the hairdressers. It blends sufficiently into your hair and you leave it for 15 minutes before rinsing it out. I do this at least once a week to provide my hair with the nourishment it needs. 

Favourite Brush: I have been using this brush the whole year mainly as my bronzer brush as I don't tend to wear powder over the top of my makeup. The Real Techniques Powder Brush I feel is the perfect shape and sculpted brush to do the job properly. Its a very good blending brush and evenings out my make up flawlessly. Definitely recommend this to be part of your brush collection.

I hope that you have enjoyed viewing my favourite products of the year. I hope to be lucky enough to try some more amazing products before the year ends! Let me know what your favourite products of the year are.
