2015 is coming to an end and before we know it, it will be the new year. Absolutely crazy! I wrote a similar post last year so I thought I’d make the ‘5 favourites’ of the year an annual tradition. So without further ado, here are my 5 favourite beauty products of the year 2015.
I feel like the majority of my 2015 favourites were discovered in the second half of the year, however I’ve been relying on Bourjois foundations throughout the year. I have tried a lot of drugstore foundations over the years but Bourjois have to be my favourite as there isn’t a single foundation I’ve tried from this brand that has disappointed. All of the Bourjois foundations have a great shade range for my skintone, in the Summer I opted for a shade darker than usual and it was the perfect match. The Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation is my current favourite (although I’ve been impressed by them all), it’s buildable, long lasting and blends in beautifully. It ticks all of the boxes!
A product that gets featured a lot on my blog is the Essie Gel Setter Top Coat – however I’ve never properly reviewed it. This is my all time favourite top coat, it is fast drying, long wearing and provides a super glossy and plumpy finish. I can’t imagine doing my nails without it.
It wasn’t until September that I discovered the Schwarzkopf Got2b Curling Mousse but it has become a firm favourite and a staple in my routine. It’s everything I need in a hair mousse, it really defines my curls and helps to keep frizz at bay. It also smells amazing (a bit like a fruity cocktail) and I love the brightly coloured packaging.
I use the Collection Speedy Highlighter every single day without fail so I couldn’t not include it in my 2015 favourites. It wasn’t until 2015 that I started using highlighters and although there are many great drugstore highlighters available, the Collection offering wins for me because it’s the most gorgeous champagne colour and it’s really quick and easy to apply for a natural glowy finish.
I wrote a full review of the Essence Multi-Action Mascara back in October, and I’m still loving it just as much that of course I have to include it in my 2015 favourites. For a start, this mascara is just £2.50 which is so impressive, especially when you consider that it performs much better than mascaras far more expensive. The plastic bristles are the perfect length to catch every single lash adding length and definition whilst also seperating the lashes. It also adds noticeable volume and is long lasting without any crumbling or smudging. You really can’t go wrong with this bargain mascara!
