My Top 10 Beauty Loves of 2015
So it's already half-way through January and I only just got round to doing sorting out my beauty loves for the past year. I'm sure you guys have read a hundred other blogs summarising their favourite beauty products from the past year but I hope you all enjoy this one nonetheless.
I only really started branching out in the beauty in the past year, so there are still heaps of products I want to try but here are my favourites so far. Some of these products I have also mentioned in other posts, such as this one and this one, so you should check those posts out if you'd like to read me hype about them more!
1. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette
Such fine milled powders, perfect for setting make up and using as a highlighter for that extra glow! Particularly the middle one, incandescent lighting.
2. Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
Lengthens and volumizes, what more could you want? When I realised the brush was plastic I thought I wouldn't like it, but it quickly became my favourite mascara of 2015.
3. Too Faced Love Flush Blush in Love Hangover
Such pretty colour that lasts, I need to get my hands on more! To see swatches of this blush and read some more about it click here.
4. MAC Lipstick in Taupe
A dark brown nude shade. It was a colour that I wouldn't have normally gone for but when I tried it on in store I knew I needed it. It seriously changed up my beauty look in 2015 and quickly became my go to lipstick.
5. Born this Way Foundation in Nude
This is the best foundation I've tried. Such full coverage but moisturising at the same time, which is perfect for my dry skin.
6. L'oreal Lumi Base Magique Primer
This stuff is amazing! When used it makes any foundation look glowy and luminous. Such a beautiful primer and one I will definitely be repurchasing.
7. GHD V Rose Gold Hair Straightner
This is my baby I got for my 21st from Mum and Dad. I love the colour but besides that, I love how well it curls and straightens my hair while still leaving it shiny. When I style my hair with this straightener, my hair stays put for longer and looks beautiful all day. Before this straightener I'd never had a GHD, only a remmington. And I don't think I'll be going back to that anytime soon.
8. Nars Laguna Bronzer
Everybody and their dogs knows about this bronzer but it's honestly the best bronzer I've tried. Maybe even better than my chocolate solei! It gives the best natural bronzy look, I am obsessed with it.
9. Mecca Cosmetica Blending Brush
This has been my go to brush for any eyeshadow look I've done in the past year. It simply gets the job done and blends out my eyeshadow perfectly.
10. Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette
I saved the best for last. This is probably my favourite beauty purchase of 2015. If you don't have this, you need it. Enough said! But if you want to read more about it, click here.
I hope the first few weeks of 2016 have treated you all well! And if you're not already, I'd love for you to follow me on Instagram @anneinthedollhouse. It would mean the world to me!
