Best Of 2015 - Part 2

Welcome to the final part of my best of 2015!
I have 10 more makeup products to include in this 2 part post that were my absolute favourites during the year of 2015, so lets get into it!

Chi Chi Glamorous Eye Shadow Palette - Nudes

Chi Chi are a fantastic brand who create great quality products and I don't think there is anything of theirs that I don't love.
All of their eye shadow palettes are so pigmented and they have so many to choose from but the Nudes palette has been my absolute favourite.
You can create a soft subtle look or a night time smoky look with these shades so it's quite a versatile palette and very affordable.

Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 HR Powder - Light Porcelain

I wore this powder on the hottest of temperatures while moving house and through all of the heat and sweat, my makeup lasted through all of it.
You can apply it either wet or dry and the coverage is buildable which is great.
I like to use it with a damp beauty sponge and dab it over areas that require extra coverage like my t-zone area or over any breakouts.

It doesn't feel heavy on the skin and doesn't cake up on me either.
The lasting power of this product is simply amazing so if you're looking for a drugstore  waterproof powder foundation, I would definitely recommend this one.

Urban Decay De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray

I use this mainly for special occasions or very hot Summer days and it's a setting spray I can always rely on to keep my makeup in place all day/night.
It's also a must have in your makeup routine if you have oily skin.
I like to use it after I've applied a primer and again once I've completed my makeup. 

It does an incredible job at oil control and preventing any smudging or fading of your makeup.

Stila Stay All Day Foundation & Concealer - Bare

My go-to foundation all 2015 when I needed full coverage and staying power.
It's an oil-free matte foundation that covers imperfections really well and even helps to minimize the appearance of pores and wrinkles.
It's quite a thick formula but it doesn't feel heavy on the skin and it blends flawlessly whether you use your fingers, a brush or a makeup sponge.
It is pricey, but it's worth it.
I absolutely love this foundation, it is just perfect.

Make Up Store Lipstick - Bittersweet

I love this shade of lipstick as a day to day lip colour. 
It's not too bright or too bold. It just gives you a lovely natural colour to your lips and it's very moisturising as it contains avocado oil, shea butter and jojoba.

The Balm Blush - Hot Mama

A stunning blush that would suit any skin tone.
Very comparable to the famous Nars Orgasm shade of blush.
It gives you a beautiful pinky-peach hue to your cheeks with a subtle highlight.
It's the perfect blush for all occasions.

Australis Metallix Eye Shadow - Guns N Rose Petals

These little eye shadow pots are amazing.
If you're looking to enhance your eye look, these offer intense colour with their metallic foil finish and you only need the smallest amount.
Quite similar to Stila's Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadow except more wallet friendly.
I've found the best way to apply it is with your finger tip and just blend it out with an eye shadow brush.

Innoxa Pure Silk Skin Primer

This primer does a wonderful job at giving me a smooth and silky base to work with.
It fills in my pores and helps to extend the wear of my makeup throughout the day.
It's a light gel texture that has a silicone feel to it which is what I like in a primer.
It's also 100% fragrance free which is great for any of you with sensitive skin.

Revlon Color Stay Gel Envy Nail Polish - Queen of Hearts

Revlon have done such an amazing job with the Gel Envy range.

They have 36 colours to choose from, there is no streaking upon application, they're fast drying and they actually do last a lot long longer than your regular nail polish.
Not only that, the formulation is perfect. It's not too thick or not too thin, which makes applying it to your nails so easy and they look like salon quality nails with the smooth, glossy finish.

Too Faced Eye Shadow Palette - Natural Eyes

I was utterly obsessed with this palette.
I wouldn't use any other eye shadow palette for months because of how much I loved it.
The shades blend beautifully and they are so richly pigmented and buttery.
It also comes with little cards showing you how to create eye shadow looks using this palette which is quite handy.

I have the old packaging of this palette. I believe they have 3 new shades now so they've replaced Nude Beach, Velvet Revolver and Cocoa Puff. The modified palette still looks gorgeous though.
If you're a lover of neutral shadows, you will adore this palette.

My best of 2015 has come to an end.
I hope you enjoyed the read. If you did, please +1.

Stay beautiful!
