My 2015 Makeup and Beauty Favourites!

Hey everyone! So as 2015 comes to a close, I've gathered up all my favourite makeup products from this year into one big post! So here are the products that I loved ALL year and were my absolute favourites. I'll also be writing full reviews for each one of these products throughout the month of January for those of you who would like to know more!

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation

By far the best foundation I've used probably ever. I love this stuff. I have dry skin so finding a good foundation is usually pretty hard for me since it always tends to settle in a very obvious way on my skin which is not the effect I'm going for... This foundation looks so natural, and also offers great coverage. Awesome.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
This mascara might just be my holy grail mascara. Does everything a good mascara should do; adds volume, length and curl. I probably used it almost every day this year (except for the past couple weeks because I've run out!).

Maybelline The Blushed Nudes palette
I've mentioned this palette before in a monthly favourites. And I still use it pretty much on an almost daily basis. The selection of colours complements my skin and look so natural and pretty. Lots of golds, rosy golds and gorgeous nude shades.

Lush Therapy Massage Bar
I adore this massage bar. It may just have taken the spot of my previous favourite (and sadly discontinued) Heavanilli. The scent is so nice but not too overpowering and it does what a massage bar should do. (No joke, it was in one of my dreams the other night... I think that means something about how much I love it). Not 100% sure if this counts as a "makeup and beauty favourite" but it makes my skin feel beautiful, so that should count for something!

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
This is a new one that I've started using recently and it's already made its way into my 2015 favourites, so I think that says something about this product. There was a lot of hype surrounding this mascara and I normally don't buy into the hype, but desperate and in need of a mascara to temporarily replace my Too Faced one, I picked one up. This mascara is really lovely. It makes your lashes look super long and pretty but in the most natural way. I loveeee it.

Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen
I had been wanting this particular product for SO LONG and it was always sold out when I went to buy it. I searched for MONTHS, no joke here. So when I finally got it, I was so so excited and my expectations were pretty much sky high. And it met every expectation. I finally found my perfect wine/burgundy lip colour and the formulation is amaaaaazing. So velvetty smooth and matte.

And thats it for my 2015 makeup faves! I hope you enjoyed reading this! What do you think of these products? And what are your 2015 favourites? Let me know!
