My 2015 Beauty Favourites


To start things off nice and easy into 2016, a roundup of the products I loved and pretty much never put down in 2015 is a must, if not, compulsory on a beauty blog such as this one. 2015 was a year when I felt more comfortable in my own skin, discovered amazing products to enhance natural beauty and really nailed a beauty routine down. I now know what works best for my skin and what types of products I should be going for in the future. I have also had the opportunity to try many brands and realised that one brand does it all for me in pretty much all aspects (yes Urban Decay, I'm taking about you). My 2015 favourites are not only last year's favourites but also products I am pretty certain I will keep repurchasing over and over again.

Click on each product name below for full reviews here on the blog

The Benefit POREfessional Face Primer has completely changed my make-up game. It manages to hide my huge pores and provide flawless finish making it very much worth the hype if you haven't tried it yet. In my experience, it workes amazingly well prior to the Garnier Micellar Water and followed by the L'oreal Infallible Matte Foundation, which I know isn't everybody's cup of tea due to it being best suitable for combo/oily skin (ideal for me) and not working out so hot form those with dry skin. With the skin prepped, the next step would be to conceal my dark circles, an easier task said than done, but one product that comes close to tackling them effectively is the Urban Decay Naked Concealer and I have yet to find something better than this. And given 2015 was the year of contouring and strobing, my trusty Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette came in handy whenever I wanted to contour my not-so-tiny round face and highlight the cheekbones for a more polished and illuminated complexion.

Onto brows, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade is my newest best friend and I am kicking myself for not buying it sooner; it's smooth, pigmented and waterproof, everything you want in a little pot to really up your brow game. Still on the eyes, the much raved on this blog Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette and Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara both make reappearances and I'm not even sorry about talking about these repeatedly. And, whenever it came to lining my eyes, I always seemed to reach for the cheap yet amazing quality Collection Lasting Colour Gel Eyelinera product I can actually work with given the lack of skills when it comes to mastering the art that is doing my eyeliner perfectly.

For the lips, Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Monte Carlo was inevitably what I picked up so sort out my often dry lips whilst adding a sheer touch of red. Despite the Coco Shine collection having a lot of bad reviews out there, this lipstick is smooth, hydrating and ideal for when my lips need a little TLC. And last but certainly not least, the Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel, because bubblegum scented gels make shower time much more fun and every day seem like it's Christmas.

Albeit I omitted haircare and nailcare products from this list (L'oreal and Essie all the way if you're wondering), this list pretty much covers what I've been wearing on a daily basis. I could go on and on about each and every single one, but all you need to know is that these seriously work and provide the result I want time after time!


What are your 2015 favourites? Have you tried any of these? Let me know below!
Thank you for reading beauties and Happy 2016!

  6. I've been wanting to try the Infallible foundation for quite some time now but like you said people with dry skin haven't had much luck with it. Thats why I keep shying away from it whenever I see it in stores! Maybe some day i'll just bite the bullet and at least try it!

  8. I've got SO many beauty favourites for 2015! It makes me sad to know that Beauty Favourites are almost compulsory for beauty bloggers yet I haven't made a Beauty Favourite ever! Uggghhhh, maybe I should soon.

    I've used the Benefit POREfessional for some time now and I think it's good but not for me since I don't have huge pores. That said, I LOVE using it on clients because of how amazing their skin looks after use! Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer is DEFINITELY in my 2015 Beauty Favourites! Heck to the yes! <3

  18. I keep thinking of buying the dipbrow pomade but I can never commit to it. I keep thinking it won't be as good as it is hyped up to be. Maybe I should just take the plunge! I'm a huge fan of loreal's foundation too. I agree, it's definitely one for the oilier ladies.

  19. Phenomenal as per usual babe! I love how there's a little bit of everything on your favourites, there are some that I haven't had the chance to try such as the Anastasia pomade for the brows, or the Loreal foundation - I feel like I'm allergic to some of the L'oreal products so I never try that many by them, but it's something I want to get over soon!

    These types of posts are dangerous because I'm going shopping soon ! And there are so many great products here.

    I have the yellow mascara by Maybelline and it's so good too. I've been wondering if I should get the Hyper Curl Mascara or the Lash Sensational one you have! Have you tried the other one? You'll have to let me know which one is your fave!

  28. So many love Urban Decay Naked Flushed palette and I honestly am feeling a little left out. Maybe I should just bite the bullet and purchase one for myself? And gah, I try so hard to love Naked Smoky but I seriously dislike it, somehow it just doesn't sit well with me.

  36. Nice list! I've wanted to try the Garnier micellar water since I've heard it's similar to bioderma while not being so stripping, plus it's less expensive. A lot of people seemed to have their naked flushed palette on their favorites - I personally haven't tried them but I kind of wanted to. Naked smoky is up there as well, though I didn't like naked 2 or 3 so I'm a little hesitant on that.

  43. Great favorites, Pam. I love the Garnier micellar water. The infallible is too matte for my liking, so I mix it with some other foundation. But the coverage is great. Cheers to 2016!!
