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.

Chanel #697 Terrana Le Vernis Nail Colour

Chanel le Vernis 697 Terrana

Terrana is one of the four nail polishes released in Chanel’s Summer 2015 collection. It’s the only one with shimmer and slightly metallic finish and it immediately caught my eye. I’m not crazy about metallics, but there is something about this shade that makes it look so sophisticated and stylish on the nails.

Chanel Rose Initial #72 and Rose Pétale #99 Joues Contraste Blush

Chanel Rose Initial Rose Petale Joues Contraste Blush

Chanel Joues Contraste Blush in Rose Initial #72 is a bright, warm, medium pink with yellow undertones. On me the shade looks similar to MAC Dainty Mineralize Blush, but the finish of Rose Initial is more subtle. It has Chanel’s signature micro glitter, just about the right amount not to be over the top but to lift the shade so it doesn’t look flat on the skin.
