Micellar wise, I have more often than not had Garnier’s version in my collection. Cheap, does the job, gentle and it is as GOOD as Bioderma. There is now even a sensitive skin version, next to try on my list for sure.
To prime the skin I have really enjoyed using Kiehl’s Micro Blur Skin Perfector*. A slightly tinted light weight cream which works a treat to prep skin and even out any larger pores.
To keep those lashes lush, Benefit’s Roller Lash has reigned supreme. Jet black lashes, no flaking, and it holds a curl, fab stuff! Lip-wise, I have been slathering on Fleur De Force’s Written in the Stars lipgloss. Nude, creamy lips in a tube. Think the shade of Charlotte Tilbury’s LipCheat in Pillow Talk or Rimmel’s East End Snob. The perfect formula, great colour and the gloss is well let’s just say very, very glossy.
Brows in check? It has to be L’Oreal’s Brow Artist Plumper. Along the same idea as Benefit’s Gimme Brow, packed with fibres, however the colour match and result are better. Plus if you’re watching the pennies this is oodles cheaper.
Cheekwise, I loved Tanya Burr’s very purse friendly Rosy Flush Cheek Palette . The highlighter wasn’t for me (a little too glitter ball-ish), however the bronzer and blush were pretty and provided a lovely flush to the skin. Quite similar in tone to the blush was The Balm’s Frat Boy. For most of the summer months I was using this at least once or twice a week. Nars’ Virtual Domination palette, was almost too pretty to use. Almost. Packed with Miss Liberty, Deep Throat, Laguna, Sex Fantasy and Final Cut. All of these blushes had tonnes of use, even if the names are unnecessary and on the dodgy side. Formulation wise, these are fantastic.
As well as having a slight crush on Nars’ Laguna (the original separate version, I hit pan on), I also fell in love with The Body Shop’s Honey Bronzer. A subtle bronzed glow to the cheeks, with no hint of a faked glow at all.
So, there you have it, an extremely quick low-down of the products which came out time and time again in 2015 and I am sure most will feature again in 2016. What products have you used religiously this year? Are there any on this list you want to try? And of course, which should I add to my wishlist for 2016? Drop it below.
Oh and a Happy New (Blogging) Year to everyone!
