2015 Beauty Favourites


I like reading monthly favourites but let's be real: the yearly favourites are the bomb diggity. If something has made it into the yearly faves then you just know that it's gotta be blooming amazing. So, in preparation for this post, I started to mull over what are the products that I couldn't be without These are the winners..
1. Maybelline - Lash Sensational mascara
This mascara has become my holy grail. It lengthens, volumizers, curls AND separates my lashes. For a girl with awfully straight lashes this does miracles.

2. Nars - Sheer Glow foundation
Oh my word this foundation is another holy grail. I'm just amazed at how a foundation can give such a good coverage while still looking natural. All of you - please go buy this. It won't let you down (unlike the pretty little liars finale you know what i'm saying?! Ugh..still so annoyed at who A is..). Review for this here.

3. Australis - AC ON TOUR contouring & highlighting kit
This was the year I got into contouring and now i'll never go back. This kit is an ABH dupe and it does an amazing job. Highly pigmented, long lasting, doesn't look like dirt..what more could you want. Review here.

4. MUA - Undress Me eyeshadow palette
The shades in this palette got me going "yes YES yes". MUA eyeshadows do a fantastic job for a drugstore brand, highly impressed. I always go back to this one!

5. Soap & Glory - Supercat liner
Had this for a year AND IT'S STILL GOING STRONG. I've tried other liners and I always go back to this one. Ah, it's just the perfect liner.

6. Revlon - ColourStay eyebrow liner
After finishing up my YUVA brow dust I ventured out of my eyebrow comfort zone and tried this bad boy. And. This. Rocks. Will repurchase time and time again. Does a remarkable job andmakes my brows look constantly on point (sorry, I want to slap myself in the face for saying 'on point' haha)

7. Collection - Lasting Perfection concealer
I really don't have to say much about this. A cult favourite. I use it time and time again. It's the perfect concealer and i'll always repurchase.

8. M.A.C - Studio Fix Foundation Powder
Top notch powder which makes my make-up last so much longer. Surprisingly doesn't look cakey while giving high coverage.

9. M.A.C - Russian Red lipstick
The perfect matte red lipstick. Whenever I apply this my confidence SOARS.

10. Maybelline - Colour Tattoo eyeshadow in ' bad to the bronze'
I could sing praises to the eyeshadow for days and days. I tell everyone about this product! I wore this on my new years all-nighter and it didn't even crease! It's the most longlasting eyeshadow i've ever used and I wear this basically everyday. Please, please, go try this. Review here.

11. Nars - Copacabana highlighter
This has been a gem. So multipurpose. I sometimes mix this into my foundation to make it more "glowy" but I mainly use it to highlight the cheeks, brow bones, nose etc. It's just sooo pretty.

12. M.A.C - Brave lipstick'
Ultimate favourite lipstick goes to Brave. It is the most easy-to-wear shade and goes with every make-up look. I can't get over how beautiful it is. You can see the swatch in my mac lipstick collection post.

I know this post is a little late but better late than never right? Feel free to let me know what your favourites were!
