I loved so many collections released in 2015 and so many products that I got to try for the first time last year.
One of my best purchases in 2015 is without doubt Giorgio Armani Sun Fabric Powder Bronzer in shade #100. It is THE bronzer for my complexion. It’s similar in shade to Nars Laguna and MAC Sun Dipped but less grey and with different finish. I’ll dare to say this bronzer makes my face look photoshopped! The illuminating powder gives the impression of perfectly polished skin. My HG among bronzers.
Nars Ondine Single Eyeshadow has been around for years, and on my wish list for a while, but I only purchased it recently. The formula is a bit on a dry side, but I don’t mind it as the shade is so beautiful and has a lovely shimmer. A great addition to my Nars eyeshadows collection.
As soon as I got my hands on Chanel Rouge Noir Illusion d’Ombre from 2015 Holiday Collection I knew it will easily win me over. Reviewed and swatched here, this little pot is one of my most favourite makeup products ever.
When it comes to lips, Burberry Kisses Lipstick in Rose Blush #89 has been the shade I’ve been wearing most often. The shade is a gorgeous mix of pink and mauve with blue undertones. I love how it looks on my complexion and that I can apply it sheer or build it up for a more dramatic look.
Charlotte Tilbury Glossy Black Full Fat Lashes Mascara is another gem. My lashes are short and straight, this mascara gives them volume and length while still looking natural. It’s easy to apply and build up and doesn’t smudge.

I have to mention a few more products that I didn’t include above but I also loved:
Urban Decay Rapture Afterglow 8-Hour Blush – if you are into mauve-pink blushes with purple undertones you need this. Gorgeous shade and gorgeous finish.
Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerise Cream Eyeshadows – these are so buttery in texture and easy to use. I’ve picked up two shades so far, Mona Lisa and Jean, and have been using them a lot for everyday, soft and natural look.
Nars One Shocking Moment Cheek Studio Palette from the Steven Klein Collection – reviewed and swatched here, this palette has become my handbag necessity!
I hope your 2015 was as well filled with great beauty treasures and I wish you even prettier 2016 :)
