Hello everyone! Hope you all had an amazing Christmas and enjoying your break from school. I am certainly making the most of the holidays by relaxing and having major netflix marathons!
This year I have just been getting into makeup and this means watching endless makeup tutorials and beauty hauls on Youtube. So today I want to share with you all the products I have been enjoying this year.
Starting off with makeup, I think that this Seventeen Contour kit is amazing value for money. It gives you a dark yet soft bronzer aswell as providing you with a lovely subtle higlighter. The packaging is lovely as it comes with a huge mirror which is great for putting in your handbag. Definately going to repurchase :)
My holy grail concealer this year had got to be the Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer which is a more of a illuminating under eye and it also gives a slight shimmer. The consistency is lovely and creamy yet not too thick, very blendable. The only con about it is that the range has very limited colours and luckily classic beige is perfect for my skin.
This lipstick from L'oreal is a great shade for everyday use and suits many different skin tones. It is called "JLo's nude" from the color riche collection. It glides effortlessly on the lips as the consistency is lovely and smooth.
If you haven't heard about this mascara then you are certainly missing out! This is the Lash Sensational mascara from Maybelline, the waterproof version. First of all, it is amazingly lengthing and applies very evenly, leaving no clumps at all! After hearing all the reviews from beauty gurus, I immediately purchased it and my eyelashes have now thanked me for it!
My two favorite hand creams of the year have been Soap & Glory's "Hand Food" and the Zoella Beuaty "Wonder Hand". Having disgustingy dry grannie hands, these two creams have saved my skin massively! Despite being incredibly moisterising, the refreshing clean smell of them makes it even nicer when applying.
I don't tend to use many products on my hair however in the colder months it is always good to inject a bit of added moisture into our dry hair. One product that I have been using for months and months is the Aussue Miracle Recharge Moisture Spray. As you can probably tell from the name, it's like a miracle to your hair after you spray this. Either on dry or wet hair, a few spritzes of this will change your dull hair into lovely shiny locks.
Lastly, my skincare favorites have been the Garnier Micellar Cleaning Water and the Clearasil SKin Perfecting Wash. To take off my makeup, I find makeup wipes very harsh and stubborn on my skin but now I use a Micellar water on a cotton pad, my skin has reacted very well to it. There are many skincare brands who now do this but going from reviews and personal use, Garnier's is the best.
I actually cannot rave about this face wash enough! Affordable, life changing, moistering...Just amazing! My skin isn't amazingly clear but after using this from about August to now, hardly any breakouts and I think it is down to this face wash! Obviously it will not be great for all skin types but I have a combined skin type and it works great.
My TV favourite of the year has to be Pretty Little Liars, of course! Although I started at the beginning of the year, I completely binge watched on Netflix and I was blown away. I was ( and still am) obsessed with PLL and I am so excited for part 2 of season 6 in January!
Thanks for reading and I will see you in 2016!
As always, comments much appreciated and let me know your favotourite products from 2015 :)
