Best of Beauty Products 2015

As if there is only ONE day left before we enter 2016....if we could just put that on hold because I could do with another month before the year ends?!

2015 has been one of them 'blink or you'll miss it' kind of years...I feel like it was January just yesterday. I've had a pretty good year all round and one of my main achievements has been venturing into the world of beauty blogging (I thought I'd never get my arse in gear...!), so I thought I'd end the year the way it started...with beauty products!

I've put together my most used, staple beauty products of 2015 (these have all won the Fran's seal of approval award, congrats ;)) :
Best of Beauty Products 2015
Base - Laura Mercier Foundation Primer, NARS Creamy Concealer, L'Oreal True Match Foundation and One Heck of a Blot Mattifying Powder. You can read more about my current favourite base products here. I've loved all of these products so much that I've barely made any changes to my base routine this year.

Contour - my trusty Sleek Contour Kit. If I'd have been blogging in 2014, this would have definitely appeared last year too. I love how subtle and buildable this product is and you can't argue with the high street price either. I've pretty much hit the pan now so I need to repurchase for 2016.

Highlighter - I think this one may feature in several of these posts this year and is pretty predictable but Mary Lou Manizer Luminizer in my opinion is worth every bit of the hype. I know everyone has been raving about Becca Champagne Pop but I own both and I'm still all about Mary Lou. Are we ever going to find a highlighter that tops this one?

Eye Palette - Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita....the dream of all eye palettes. I've been reaching for this all year for day and night eye looks and it's really all you need in one palette. I love how compact it is too so I can pop it in my handbag for when I'm on the go.

Mascara - Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes .....ohhhh, CT again!! It's a bit naughty of me to be including this in my products of 2015 as I've only owned it for about 3 months but obviously I fell in love with it straight away. No clumps and no irritated eyes is always a winner for me.

Brows - Another predictable but insanely good introduction to the beauty world, Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz has given my wild eyebrows the precision that they have been craving all these years. Hats off to this product for keeping our 2015 brow game strong.

Lipstick - Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick. In 2016, I'd just like to own every single one of these please. I just love everything about these lipsticks from the colour to the packaging to the pigmentation. This has been my most worn lipstick of 2015 and I'm on a mission to build my collection.

The all round winner for me this year has been Charlotte Tilbury. I haven't been disappointed with any of the products I have tried from the brand so far and I've tried and tested a fair few! I think they've got everything on point from product quality, packaging and price point. I can't wait for the 2016 launches.

Have any of these products been your staples throughout 2015? What have been your favourite beauty products this year? :)

  1. I am so ready to try Charlotte Tilbury in 2016. I love the L'Oreal True Match Foundation and the Mary Lou Manizer too. I bought the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz a few months ago but have yet to play around with it. I find brows an absolute nightmare! Love your choices.

    1. Thank you Roxie! There is so much hype around Charlotte Tilbury as a brand and I'm not usually one to buy into the hype but it's really worth it. The products are just so luxurious! I have the most unruly brows and it took me a while to get used to Brow Wiz but keep at it! :) xxx

    1. Thank you Jasmine :) I love Sleek as a brand, so many good products I think for a decent price. The Laura Mercier primer is great, I'm so fussy with the textures when it comes to primers but this one is lovely xxx
