Favorite Products of 2015: Makeup

Sunday, January 03, 2016

Hello girls !
I'm finally back from my trip to Bratislava. As year 2016 already came, I decided to introduce you to a few products that I absolutely loved in year 2015. These are the products that really stood out to me and I couldn't imagine my routine without them. I'm not going to talk about every single product in each category (such as primers, eyeshadows etc.), because maybe I didn't find any really amazing product this year.



Let's start with a foundation. This year I splurged on Dior - Diorskin Forever Fluid foundation, which is supposed to give you a matt finish and is great for combo to oily skin. I fell in love because it is just so light-weight in comparison to my daily foundation: Revlon Colorstay which is quite heavy but great for oily skin. Though Dior Forever might not be super matt, it is a nice dewy finish without looking cakey. It stays on my face quite nicely but I wouldn't say that it is sweat-proof and probably not good for a night out. I still love to using it on daily basis when I don't need such a longlasting finish but want somethng that feels nice on my skin. The lightest shade is a bit darker on me but not as much as other drugstore foundations. Though I really need to find something similar in drugstore because this product is so expensive !




As for concealer I've been loving Maybelline Anti-Age Concealer in the shade Light. It has an amazing pigmentation and because it's a bit orangey, it eliminates blue tones on my under-eye area. This shade is not as pale as my skin but it blends in nicely while making me look more awake. I totally get the hype.



Next up would be Urban Decay Primer Potion in the shade Eden, which I talked about here. It is just great and I have no complaints. Also I really like the packaging. It seems as if I've started to cherish more expensive makeup and I like using it, knowing where the money went: into quality.

Another must have in my daily routine: Catrice Eyebrow Filler. This thing is the bomb. If you are quite lazy with your eyebrows, this it the product for you ! You just brush through eyebrows to tint them nicely and they instantly look great. It also transfers onto your skin where empty areas are. Though sometimes I still use some eyebrow powder to quickly fill in some gaps.



Another product from Catrice is Velvet Matt eyeshadows. Everyone talked about them at the end of last year and I discovered them only at the begining of this one. They are just simply amazing. Such an amazing blendability and pigmentation.



Again this year I've tried many mascaras and one stood out to me: Avon Big Mascara. Why? Because it adds a nice amount of volume and is really longlasting. Usually after 6 hours of wear, mascara tends to transfer onto my upper eyelid because my eyelids are quite greasy. I'm not too keen on waterproof mascaras, so here Avon mascara came in handy. It's just great. Though I feel like it dried up quicker than other mascaras.


In Austrian drugstore: Bipa I discovered their Look by Bipa eye Duo Eyeliner. Sometimes when I'm in a hurry I love having something that dries up quicker and is easy to use. This one is great for that. Somehow the brush is so easy to operate and the tip doesn't dry up in a month or two.


Second to last: Max Factor Creme Puff blush - Lavishing Mauve. Quite a lot of beauty bloggers raved about these so I was really happy to give two shades a test. It stands out because it has a really nice texture which blends so easily. However I'm mostly in love with this shade as it looks so natural but gives my cheeks a nice flush to them without looking too pink (which I don't like).


And the last item is sadly only limited: Essence TE lipsticks. I discovered that these lipsticks in slim tubes from Essence are just amazing. So creamy and nourishing but so easy to apply since the actual product is thin and works easily on your lips. Longevity may not be the best, but still is good. I may be having an eye out for them also in 2016. (p.s. one is missing on the picture :) )


But of course I cannot forget about my MAC - Twig lipstick which has been my go to party lipstick. To me really is a substitute for a red lipstick. On me it is kinda a reddish dark brown shade and I think it suits my pale complexion.

So here are my 2015 faves. At least from the makeup part. Next post shall contain products from skincare, body care and hair stuff. I hope you had a nice read and let me know which are your favorite products :)
