2015 Favourites

I know everyone says it, but I really can't believe that it's 2016. I'm ready to get back to school and get into a more normal routine, but today I'm talking about my most loved products of the year!

This year (and most others) was the year of foundation, I've bought an embarrassing amount, but I managed to narrow it down to my two most worn. The MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation is one that I haven't really mentioned on the blog, but I have been loving it. I have the shade NC20, which is starting to get a wee bit dark for pale little old me, but I keep on wearing it. It has nice coverage and a beautiful satin finish, but the best thing is that it lasts ALL DAY. Another foundation favourite was the L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation (Thanks Desi) which gives you perfect-perfect super matte skin. The only problem I've had is that the lighter shades are quite pink, so I usually mix this with a yellower foundation, but it looks beautiful on the skin.

The Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer has been hugely hyped up this year, and for good reason. It looks beautiful under the eyes and doesn't settle too badly, plus (running theme here) it's super long wearing. I've used up almost the whole tube, oops. Another hyped product I love (also thanks to Desi) is the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder, I don't know how but this keeps your concealer crease-free and budge-proof all day. For budge-proof eyeshadow I've been sticking to my old go-to the MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre because it's perfect.

Eyeshadow has been a wee bit on the back burner this year, but I have been loving the Colourpop Super Shock Shadows. They take a bit of getting used to but they're definitely worth it. Also my trusty NARS Kalahari Duo is always there for me when I'm feeling lazy. I fell in love with the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara this month and had to feature it because it is AMAZING, let me tell you. You must try it. As always to keep my brows "on fleek" I have to talk about my beloved Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade because it really is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Brow "game" has been a huge trend this year and this baby always gets me compliments.

Another major trend this year has been highlighting. Nikki got me on the Kat Von D Thunderstruck Metal Crush Shadow train, and it's been something that I use regularly. My top highlighter however is not pictured, simply because Inglot eyeshadows are so damn hard to get out of the palette. Inglot's Pearl 395 is easily the best highlighter I have EVER used, don't knock it until you try it (it's like $7). I've gotten into wearing false lashes, and Eyelure's are definitely my favourites particularly the Texture No. 117.

Colourpop has taken up residence in my lip wardrobe and is refusing to let anything else in. I started off the year loving the Lippie Stix (which I still do), but I think the Ultra Matte Liquid Lips are probably my favourite product of the year period. Specifically I have been wearing Midi and Avenue a lot!

These have been my top products this year, let me know what yours were in the comments!
