2015 Favourites. Beauty And Random.

Wednesday, December 30, 2015

If you follow my blog for quite a while, you might have noticed that suddenly at the end of winter I stopped doing monthly favourites. I simply don't collect enough items to put up a proper blogpost. However, over the entire year some beauty products as well as other bits and bobs have earned my love, so I thought I would write 2015 favourites to sort of sum it all up.

Urban Decay Naked 3.
Without this palette I couldn't have imagined how pretty pinky, warm toned eyeshadows would look with brown eyes. These shadows are great for creating neural everyday makeup looks as well as night out ones. They last for a long time even without primer and are highly-pigmented. Basically, if you fancy having a browse of a full review, simply click here. Hopefully I will invest in more Urban Decay palettes next year!

RT Base Shadow Brush.
Speaking about eye makeup, the base brush from Nic's Picks Set by Real Techniques has become my absolute must-have. I whether apply eyeshadow on the lid with it or do blending. Works amazingly for both. I bought it around this time last year and even with every washing the quality of the bristles haven't changed at all. In general, I am now a big fan of RT, but I still need to try out more face brushes as all of those I have are mostly for the eyes.

MAC Velvet Teddy.
Such a cliche, I know. Frankly speaking, I would be lying if didn't include Velvet Teddy in this list. I feel like it is the most raved lipstick of 2015 and there are great reasons behind it. That might be a lipstick Kylie Jenner used, etc., etc., but as I said before I think it would become popular even without getting this massive Internet fame. The shade is amazing, exactly what you want from the nude lipsticks, plus long-lasting. I mean, yes, give me thousands of those. Besides that, it's my first ever MAC purchase! Anyway, if you are looking for a dupe, have a look at Color Drama Intense velvet lip pencil in shade Nude Perfection by Maybelline.

Rimmel Stay Matte.
I have only recently reviewed this powder, so there is not so much to say. But I am going to repeat myself that I have no idea how I lived without it. Stay Matte is a perfect discovery for my oily skin!

OGX Nourising Coconut Milk Hair Conditioner.
My hair is now so healthy and shiny only thanks to this conditioner. It even helped me to get rid of frizz! I can't wait to try OGX shampoos as well. Which one would you recommend?

Maybelline Lash Sensational.
Last but definitely not least on my list of beauty favourites is Lash Sensational. It has become big in beauty blogosphere in 2015. Personally, I think I have recommended it to almost every girl or woman I know and, guess what, they are now obsessed with it as much as I am. This mascara gives you lashes so much volume and length that it is impossible not to love it. I can easily call it the best mascara I have ever tried.


Also I'm going to quickly chat through my random favourites. I could continue this list on and on, but decided to rather keep it short and quick. So, here are random highlights of my year:

Inside Out and Tangled.
How amazing are these film! Okay, I know Tangled came out in 2010, however, believe me or not, I watched it for the first time in August. Since then I have been rewatching it like each month. About Inside Out, I think no matter what age the person is, it will make her or him smile. It is a bit childish yet funny story that everyone should watch!

All The Bright Places.
Oh my word, this book is literally one of the best I've ever read. It is more on a sad story side and has definitely done a great job at making me cry my eyes out... Anyway, if you haven't read it yet, go and do that. You won't regret.

Hello... It's me.
Adele has made her great comeback and absolutely nailed it, hasn't she? I have about three songs from '25' album that I listen to non-stop almost every day and never grow bored of it.

Avocado Toasts.
Yup, I'm mentioning food, LOL. Long story short, I would eat avocado toasts for breakfast, lunch and dinner till the rest of my life without any problems.

Let me know about your favourites of 2015 or if you loved the same products this year as I did!

    1. You should get it, especially if you're into nude lipsticks x

  3. Inside out was by far my favourite film of the year. How you feel about the Naked 3 palette is how I feel about the Naked Palette. I also have a Naked Smoky which is nice for a dramatic look but I'd say I would have preferred the Naked 3. Really need to try another MAC lipstick and this is gonna be the year I do it.


    1. I'd love to get Naked smoky because it has so many beautiful shades! At the same time, I think I wouldn't use it that often as I don't usually go for dramatic eye makeup, but who knows what will happen in 2016 :D
