Good evening everybody! So, I have been trying to get this post out for weeks, and yes, it is really late to be doing this considering January is almost over.. But, I still wanted to share my most used, favorite products in 2015! Without further ado…Here is my really, super long favorites post!
*Disclaimer* you are likely to see the words “completely obsessed, so in love, amazing, awesome, favorite, definitely, etc. over and over again.The first product I want to talk about is the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer. I have had this primer since June and I am still so in love with it! It smooths out the skin, reducing the size of my pores, and keeps my foundation in place all day. Definitely my favorite primer that I used in 2015.The next product on my list is the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation. I am so picky about foundations, and I am really into this one! The only “negative” thing about this is, when I use it with a Beauty Blender, my face can look a little rutty. However, it goes on completely flawless with my Morphe M439 brush. It is awesome for oily, sensitive skin. Love love love this foundation!Now, I have the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Coverage Concealer. This is my holy grail concealer! I cannot rave enough about how awesome it is. I have not tried a concealer that is as nice as this one. I never need to touch up after using this, and it doesn’t crease or get cakey throughout the day. I just love this so much!Next, is the Beauty Blender. I think it goes without saying why this is a favorite. I use it with my concealer and to set my face. I just love the way my makeup looks when I use it. Really recommend this over just a regular sponge or a concealer brush! This is an Estée Lauder blush palette that I fell in love with this fall. As you can see, I really like the top left, Bronze Goddess, for winter and fall! It’s technically a blush, but it is so brown that I use it more as a bronzer. It does have a tiny bit of a pink undertone, so I use it by itself without a blush. This is probably my favorite Estée Lauder product ever!This is my absolute FAVORITE Morphe brush that I have, the Morphe E4. The Elite collection is SO bomb. I absolutely love this brush for bronzing the face, and it is also really great for blush. If I get more Morphe brushes in the future, I will only buy from the Elite collection, because I have found the others don’t work as well, for me. This one feels so luxurious and is really great quality for the price!Now, to the eyes.. This is the Lisa Perry Estée Lauder palette that I also really enjoyed in 2015. I really like all of these shades. I have the first pale, shimmery one, Ivory Slipper, in the full size container that I have actually hit pan on, because I used it like every day for half of the year. Provocative Plum, the last purple shade, is also a favorite of mine! I feel like the Estée Lauder eyeshadows get really overlooked and forgotten about because it’s very rare that a Beauty Blogger talks about them. They are super pigmented, but with that comes some fallout, but it’s nothing that can’t be easily fixed.My favorite high-end mascara, right now is the Benefit They’re Real Mascara! I can definitely tell a difference in my lashes when I have this on as compared to the Urban Decay Perversion mascara. The wand was a little intimidating at first, but it quickly became a favorite!The Maybelline Turbo Volum’ Express Mascara is my favorite drugstore mascara! Unlike most of the drugstore mascaras I have tried, this does not get my lashes too wet, and ultimately make them droopy. I have really enjoyed this, all thanks to my Big for telling me to try it!Now, we have the Anastasia Brow Wiz. This little beaut has completely changed my eyebrow game. I will never go back to what I was doing before. However, I may try out the rest of her brow products just to see if I could ever like anything better than this. I absolutely love this thing!!! Definitely the best in the business!Next I have the Anastasia Clear Brow Gel. This is actually my second one to go through, and I need a third because I am almost out AGAIN. This thing is like glue for the brows. It keeps them in place where I want them all day and night, and I just can’t get enough. Definitely a must-have! I think I have been in love with this product since the day I saw it… This is the Becca + Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector- Champagne Pop. You can tell, I have used this thing a LOT this year. It is definitely my favorite highlight of the year…possibly ever. Champagne Pop is BEYOND gorgeous! So glad Becca decided to make it permanent!THIS IS BAE!! I am so so so SO in love with the Too Faced Melted Liquid Lipstick in the shade Melted Fig. I usually don’t go for purple lips because they scare me, and I never think I can pull it off.. However, this completely changed my view on purple lips. It is a gorgeous purpley, mauvey shade. I am so obsessed with this lipstick and am anxious to get more. This takes the cake for my absolute favorite product in 2015.This is another Estée Lauder product that I really enjoyed this year. With going to Ole Miss, and red lips at football games pretty much being a requirement, I have gone through lipstick after lipstick trying to find my perfect shade and this has gotten pretty dang close! This is the Estée Lauder Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick in Scarlet Siren. I really love this lipstick. It stays on through tailgating, eating, drinking, screaming at the games, and when I get home, it’s STILL on. It is super creamy, but can bleed out of line if you’re not careful. Using a good liner with this product is definitely a must, or it will bleed out real quick. Still, I really recommend trying out their lipsticks. So good!Now, I have the Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray! I bought this product after watching a Jaclyn Hill video where she used the Chill Setting Spray, and decided to get this since I’m already a little oily and don’t want a dewey look. It really does make a difference in the longevity of my makeup and keeps it looking fresh all day. I would definitely recommend this for anybody who is oily because it really makes my makeup stick!
This is the L’Occitane Dry Skin Hand Cream in the Original Scent. I really like this product for the winter because in the Mississippi cold, my hands can get really dry at night. I use a pea size drop of this, and it makes my hands feel so much better and moisturized. I received this as a gift in 2014 and I still have almost a full tube left. I gave a few of these as Christmas gifts this year because I love it so dang much. This is actually a gift I received for Christmas, from my sister-in-law. Her friend makes a bunch of all-natural soaps, scrubs, and other bath products. It is a Brown Sugar Scrub and yes, you guessed it, I am COMPLETELY OBSESSED. I have seen such a difference in my skin from using this and some of her soaps. I cannot imagine a day when I go back to that store-bought crap. I am so in love with her bath products.Mmmkay… Last, but definitely not least, I have the Clean and Clear Night Relaxing Deep Cleaning Face Wash. I use this every night in my skincare routine, and I love how good and clean my face feels after. It doesn’t dry out my skin and make my face really tight like some (which is really bad for your skin), but it makes my face feel so clean without damaging my skin. I used this a couple of years ago, but re-bought it again last year and re-fell in love with it. Definitely my favorite drug store face wash, as of now!
Well, guys, that’s it for my extremely long favorites of 2015! If you made it all the way through, I give you props. I hope you enjoyed this post! Again, I’m so sorry it took me so long to get this out.
