Top 15 from 2015


Another year is over...I really can't believe it...so time to show you all the products I've been loving throughout the year. Some are newer than others, and some you would have heard me talking about all the time, but, these are the products I always reach for. Obviously I may be repeating myself here a little but bare with me and I hope you enjoy.

1. Redken Preparing Blow-dry Lotion - Blow-dry lotions aren't something I would normally use, I usually go in with a heat protectant and leave it at that, this however is life changing. It's a light cream which you run through wet hair and it preps it for drying. It makes my hair so much smoother and shinier and it also contains heat protectant so it's a great multi-purpose product.

2. Maybelline Creamy Beige Colour Tattoo - I've raved on and on about this so I'll keep this short and sweet. It's a fab base for eyeshadow, and on its own it looks lovely too. If you're looking for a nude eyeshadow base, make it this one.

3. Kiehls Daily Reviving Concentrate - I knew I had to try this as soon as it came out and I absolutely love it. A few drops all over the face and it really helps to waken and brighten the skin.

4. Clinique High Lengths Mascara - This was a re-discovery for me after using a sample last year. It's the best mascara for length and definition, I haven't come across anything which compares. If you're okay with spending a bit more on mascaras I would definitely check out Clinique as a brand as they have some amazing formulas.

5. Charlotte Tilbury Barbarella Brown Liner - This year I was on the hunt for a good brown pencil liner, and I found it. This Charlotte Tilbury one is really creamy and blendable but lasts all day. I love this smudged into my upper and lower lash line for an effortless look.

6. L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil - Never have I come across such a silky smooth body wash in my life...post shave, this stuff is amazing at maintaining moisture and it also smells delicious.

7. Liz Earle Eye Bright Soothing Eye Lotion - Tired looking eyes is something I struggle with on the daily, so I love products which brighten and reduce bags. I will pop this on a cotton pad, swipe across my eyes and they feel instantly refreshed.

8. Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation - I picked this up in the summer as I was after a lightweight foundation and it really ticks all the boxes for me. It's very buildable and is great to mix in with other foundations to give more a dewy look. If you like your skin to look glowing and natural, this is one for you.

9. St Tropez Express Tan - This is the first "proper" fake tan I've used and I don't really want to use anything else. The fact that the colour is so customisable is amazing and it doesn't leave you sticky or with that typical biscuit scent. It lasts for a good 5 days and the colour is really natural.

10. MAC Syrup Lipstick - Plumful will always have a place in my heart, but this is a more dulled down version. It's still in the plum family colour wise, but it's really moisturising, and is a great everyday shade.

11. Dior Glow Maximiser - I never want to be without this primer, it makes your skin so glowing and sits beautifully under any foundation. The way I love to use this is mixed in with a slightly matter foundation, I find it leaves a flawless dewy look which I love.

12. Benefit Gimme Brows - I never really used eyebrow gels until this one. I use the lighter shade as I find it's less messy and looks better with the lighter tones in my hair. It really does set your brows in place and the little wand makes it really easy to place the product without getting it everywhere.

13. Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip Cheat - This product really changed the lip liner game for me. The colour is perfect for naturally defining your lips and it looks so good with any nude on top.

14. The Balm Frat Boy Blush - I love blushes that look natural and give off a nice flush of colour. This for me is the perfect everyday blush I reach for when I don't know what else to use. It's a medium pink tone, it's also matte which makes it very wearable.

15. LUSH It's Raining Men Body Wash - I didn't mean to include two body washed in here, but hay ho. This I love for the smell, it is such a nice honey scent I can't get over it and have to smell it every time I'm in LUSH. The formula is also very creamy and nourishing as all LUSH products are.
