Best of 2015

Best of 2015

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.

I’ve pulled out Nars Subra Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow, Burberry Mulberry Sheer Eyeshadow and Urban Decay Roach Eyeshadow to see how they compare.

Burberry Nail Polish in #200 Steel Grey

Burberry Steel Grey nail polish

Burberry Steel Grey is a different take on grey nail polishes. It’s a mid-toned grey that leans slightly green, with tiny gold shimmer. The shimmer is not very obvious on the nails, it’s most visible in the sun, but it does give this shade a complexity and warmth that is unusual for this kind of colour.

Burberry Sheer Eye Shadow in No.07 Taupe Brown

Burberry Taupe Brown eyeshadow

Burberry Sheer Eye Shadows are my all time favourite single eyeshadows. They simply tick all the boxes when it comes to the formula, staying power, shades and finishes. Burberry recently reformulated their mono eyeshadow range, they are now called Eye Colour Wet & Dry, and I admit – I’m a bit scared to try them as I absolutely love the old ones.

What I’m loving these days

Guerlain Burberry BobbiBrown Chanel MAC

The best thing about summer makeup is getting away with using just a few products to create a flawless look. Lately my daily makeup has been very simple as my skin feels and looks better when it’s warmer outside than during the winter. It doesn’t need as much coverage and colour to make it look healthy.

What I’m loving these days

Guerlain Chanel Burberry MAC

Sunny days finally arrived in London, and with it my desire to reach more often for brighter colours, bronzers and highlighters. Although I wear them all year round, I enjoy them a bit more when the sun is out as that is the time when their beauty shows the most.
