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.

These are my favourite face products, I use them all a lot and rotate depending on the effect I would like to achieve on a particular day. I hope you’ll enjoy the comparison photos and find them useful!

I’ve been dreading the thought of this review for a while – it’s never fun to write a negative review. Unfortunately, I don’t have anything positive to say about these two products from Nars, so I’ll keep it short.
