And so we start a new year.
I look back on 2015 with very mixed emotions, a lot has happened this year and to think of everything makes my head spin. I started off the year with a new job and I also started this Blog, which, I have to say I am loving. In May I married my best friend, it couldn't of been a happier day for us both.
Then things started to turn a bit sour. We lost a very close family member and another one become very ill.
However, these things are sent to try us and also make us stronger, I do not know what 2016 holds for me but hopefully I will enjoy it and also learn from it.
URBAN DECAY ALL NIGHTER MAKEUP SETTING SPRAY
This was a recent purchase but I added it to the list as I have been using it none stop since I got it. I only bought the 30mL but will definitely be going back to get the larger size.
It sprays on your face like a mist of water but then magically sets your makeup in place perfectly. I mean it just didn't budge all night, fabulous.
ESTEE LAUDER DOUBLE WEAR HIGH COVER CONCEALER, 1W Light
This product I have spoken about before, and I am still using it everyday on my blemishes and red marks. It covers like a dream, I do place a light dusting of setting powder over the top to help keep it in place, but it mostly stays all day. I have also just purchased the Double Wear Foundation to go along side this. A review will be coming shortly for that.
CLARINS INSTANT CONCEALER, 01
I was introduced to this product by the makeup artist who did my face for my wedding. She was one on the loveliest ladies I ever met. Truly a great lady, who was more than happy to talk makeup and beauty with me. I do not use this product for my every day makeup, I tend to save it for when I want more of a flawless, high coverage makeup look. I just use it to conceal my under eye area, and it does this incredibly well, everything is blurred and even toned. Great product.
STILA STAY ALL DAY WATERPROOF LIQUID EYE LINER, Intense Black.
I really don't want to sound all dramatic, but this has literally changed life!
I had tried so many liquid eye liners that I very nearly gave up hope. I always longed for that perfect one that would make my makeup bag complete. Thankfully this year was the year I discovered Stila's wonder product and I haven't looked back since. It literally stays on all day, so if you have oily eye lids like me, and most other liquid eyeliner rubs off, please go give a try!
MAC LIPSTICK, PLUMFUL
This is now and forever going to be my most favoured of all lipsticks, as this is the beauty I wore on my wedding day. This colour is so perfect for my skin tone, and went really well with the touch of vintage glamour of the day. It glided on smoothly and lasted for ages, definitely going to be purchasing more from Mac in the future.
NIVEA IN SHOWER BODY MOISTURISER
I have already stated lots of times how great this product is, not only the Q10 firming one but all of the in shower range. I am so ridiculously lazy when it comes to moisturising, so this is the best thing since sliced bread in my eyes. And it really does leave your skin feeling super hydrated.
BALM BALM 100% ORGANIC ROSEHIP SERUM.
Again I am not going to harp on about this product, as I have done countless times in other posts. Needless to stay I love this stuff as I am now onto my second bottle.
I only use it at night followed by my normal moisturiser, and it just makes my skin feel so hydrated and soft, gives me more evened skin tone and even helps reduce inflammation of any blemishes I have, it's my miracle serum.
There have been a lot of other products I have really loved using this year, but these are the ones that stand out the most, my hero products you could say. I hope you enjoyed this little round up, and I would love to hear your favourites from the year.
I hope you all have a fabulous 2016 and keep coming back to read my posts,
