Happy New Year! I can't believe that it's 2016 already, where has this past year gone? I really hope that you all had a wonderful celebration with your loved ones and that the new year is treating you well so far. As you might have noticed, I have been missing in action for a while now. I've been quite busy with work and I just felt like taking a little break from the blog to gain some inspiration.

One of my new year resulutions this year is to get back into blogging again. I love interacting with you and sharing my favorite products with you as well as fun, new upcoming products on the beauty marked. Be sure to let me know if there are any specific posts you would like to see more off on my blog this year, I would love to do them for you! But enough rambling, let's jump into my 2015 beauty favorites! :-) 
Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in 105:
The Maybelline Fit Me Foundation has been my most reached for foundation in 2015. I really like how lightweight it feels and how natural it looks on my skin. It's easy to apply and very easy to blend. It feels a little sticky on the skin after it's been applied, so I always make sure to set it with a powder afterwards. I think this is such a great foundation for the price and I always find myself going back to it whenever I'm doing my makeup. 

MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Concealer in NW15:
What I really like about the Pro Longwear concealer from MAC Cosmetics is that it doesn't crease underneath my eyes. The coverage is wonderful and it's got a thick consistency, which is very easy to apply and blend out. I really like how it brightens up my face and makes me look more awake, it's definitely a life changer on those early mornings. The only thing that I don't like about it is the scent. The smell reminds me of paint, you know what I mean if you have tried it out for yourself or if you are familiar with their Studio Fix Fluid foundation. But once you have applied the concealer, you don't notice the scent anymore. Pro Longwear concealer from MAC Cosmetics is a little pricier compared to the Fit Me concealer from Maybelline, but I really think that it's worth the $21 price tag. A little goes a very long way with this concealer, so it's going to last you a good while! :-)

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 15:
The Maybelline Fit Me concealer has good pigmentation, it doesn't crease too much under my eyes and it's easy to blend as well. The coverage isn't as good as Pro Longwear from MAC Cosmetics, but it gets the job done. Fit Me is a great choice if you are looking for a more affordable concealer to try out for yourself. I'm almost finished with this tube, so I need to pick up another one the next time I'm at the mall! :-)

L'Oreal Paris Brow Stylist Plumper in Light to Medium:
After hearing so many lovely things about L'Oreal Paris Brow Stylist Plumper from Shaaanxo on YouTube, I just had to test it out for myself. Guess what? I have been hooked on it ever since, ha ha. It has quickly become a must have and a staple in my daily makeup bag. It's very easy to apply due to the small applicator brush, makes it so easy for you to comb through each and every single brow hair. It looks very natural on the brows, it last a long time and it doesn't make them feel too stiff and uncomfortable either. The only thing that I don't like about it is that the brush can sometimes have too much product on it. I like to wipe it with a tissue to remove any access product before I apply it on my brows. But other than that this product gets two thumbs up from me! :-)

Rimmel London Wonder'Full Wake Me Up Mascara in 001 Black:
One of my favorite mascara's in 2015 has been the Wonder'Full Wake Me Up Mascara from Rimmel London. The lovely people over at LookFantastic sent it to me, which I'm so grateful for. It's such a nice mascara, which looks very natural on the eyes. It gives my lashes nice lenght, but not as much volume as I hoped for. I love that it doesn't make my lashes look clumpy,stiff or feel uncomfortable. If you are blessed with thick and volumunous eye lashes and you just want to give your lashes some nice lenght, definitely check out this mascara. I think it's lovely and I would definitely re-purchase it. 

Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray:
All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray from Urban Decay has been a huge favorite of mine in 2015. It feels so nice and refreshing on the skin. I like to apply it after I'm done doing my makeup. It sets everything in place and makes my makeup last thoughout the day. My skin is quite dry, so the powder
 (Rimmel London Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder) that I use to set my foundation with usually sticks to any dry patches on my skin. But this takes away that powdery, dry look and makes my makeup look so pretty and natural. Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray has quickly become one of my holy grail beauty products and I can't see myself not using it everyday! :-)  
Urban Decay Naked Basics Eyeshadow Palette:
Urban Decay Naked Basics Eyeshadow Palette has been my go-to, everyday eyeshadow palette in 2015. The palette is filled with 6 gorgeous eyeshadows, 1 shimmery shade and 5 matte shades. The eyeshadows are nicely pigmented and they feel silky and very smooth to the touch. They are very easy to apply and blend out as well. Some of the eyeshadows are a bit chalky, but that's okay. It's nothing too crazy that would make me not want to use them. 
 Urban Decay is one of my favorite brands and I personally think that they make some of the best eyeshadows on the beauty marked. If you are looking for a new, neutral eyeshadow palette to try out, definitely keep this one in mind next time that you are going shopping. It's such a handy little palette that is perfect for everyday use and it also makes the perfect little travel companion as well! :-) 
Hourglass Cosmetics Ambient Lighting Blush in Radiant Magenta:
My favorite blush in 2015 have hands down been Radiant Magenta by Hourglass Cosmetics. It's a beautiful golden fuchsia blush, which looks absolutely gorgeous and surprisingly natural on the cheeks. The pigmentation is wonderful and it has a very soft and smooth texture that blends like a dream. Hourglass Cosmetics definitely knows a thing or two about packaging! If you are looking for a high-end blush to splurge on, you should check these out. They are truly stunning and worth the money in my opinion! :-) 
MAC Cosmetics Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle:
If you have been following my blog for a while now, this next product shouldn't come as a shock to you. MAC Cosmetics Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle has been my favorite, go-to highlighter in 2015. It's a gorgeous golden champagne highlighter, which is nicely pigmented and looks stunning on top of the cheekbones. It can also be used on the eyes, which I have been doing a lot as well. I love using it on the inner corner of my eyes, because it makes the entire makeup look really soft and pretty while making you look more awake as well.
H&M Lipstick in Brunette Ambition:
Have you seen the new beauty range from H&M? I did a beauty haul a while ago featuring a couple of items from their new range (here) and this lipstick is one of the items that I picked up. I'm so happy that I decided to go for this particuar color, because it's the perfect everyday color. This liptsick is called Brunette Ambition and it's a gorgeous, deep pinky brown. The pigmentation is very nice, it's really creamy and it feels  comfortable to wear on the lips as well. The formula and quality of this lipstick is quite impressive, it definitely makes me want to head back into H&M and pick up more shades from this range! :-) 
MAC Cosmetics Lip Liner in Soar and Lipstick in Brave:
My favorite lip combination in 2015 have been Soar lip pencil and Brave lipstick from MAC Cosmetics. They are both gorgeous worn alone but together they create the most beautiful, pinky brown. Lipsticks have always been a weakness off mine, especially deeper, nude shades. ''Concealer'' lips have never been my thing, I've always gravitated towards lip colors like these two. Soar is such a nice color on it's own, but I don't like how drying it feels on my lips. So that's why I love pairing these two together, it's just the perfect everyday combination! :-) 
 There you go, my top favorite beauty products in 2015! What products did you love in 2015? Do we have any of the same favorites? :-) 
Love, Christine ♥


  1. I want to get my hands on the brow plumper too because of Shaaanxo, it's on my next drug store list for sure. Fit me concealer is my favourite drugstore it beats my Rimmel 2&1 hands down. I may have to pick up that mascara it sounds so lovely, not to much on your lashes which I find with some mascara's.
