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.

Urban Decay Roach, Rockstar and Virgin eyeshadows

UrbanDecay eyeshadows Rockstar Roach Virgin

I ventured into the world of Urban Decay eyeshadows relatively recently which, I admit, is a crime for an eyeshadow lover as I am as their eyeshadows are recognised as some of the best on the market. Faced with an extensive choice of shades and finishes in their London Covent Garden store I had a really difficult job of choosing just a few. They all swatched beautifully – I haven’t noticed any issues with pigmentation and they all felt very soft and velvety. Impressive, considering there must be over sixty shades in Urban Decay’s eyeshadow collection.

At the end I went for Roach, Rockstar and Virgin eyeshadows as I knew those are the shades I would use a lot.

Illuminating finishing powders comparison swatches

I have finally managed to get some decent photos of my finishing powders yesterday, I’ve tried taking them twice so far but the weather in London just didn’t want to cooperate in the past few weeks! 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!
