2015 Favorites & a Giveaway!


      It's the start of a new year! Besides my resolutions for the 2016 New Year, I'll also be taking with me into the new year my beauty and makeup favorites from the 2015 year. My beauty and makeup favorites range from the high end to the high street, and I'm personally really surprised that one particular product has made it into my 2015 favorites! Lastly but certainly not least, I'll be giving away some of my favorites to a lucky reader! Read on for details!

Skincare

& Other Stories Hand Cream in Moroccan Tea
This stuff smells so good, it's crazy. I keep this on top of my beauty vanity for easy access whenever my hands feel dry. For only $11, you get a ton of hand lotion! & Other Stories also has tons of other scents to choose from. Definitely repurchasing when I have used this bottle up. Full post here.

Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate
This has been the best facial oil I've used in the 2015 year. It's actually a very light oil that doesn't feel greasy at all. Plus, it smells like lavender which I absolutely adore. I've already gotten my mom hooked on it too! Full review to be posted Wednesday!

Kiehl's Super Multi Corrective Cream
For me personally, this has to be the year where Kiehls really is the standout skincare brand. Their Super Multi Corrective Cream has done amazing things for my skin. Full review here.

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil
Full review to come soon of this cleansing oil, but spoiler alert - it's obviously amazing since it's made it onto my 2015 favorites! It feels absolutely amazing on the skin, breaks down everything easily, and rinses clean! I like it a lot more than the Josie Maran Argan Oil Cleansing Oil!

Pixi Glow Tonic
I really like the exfoliating toner from Pixi. Honestly the one bad thing about it is that the bottle it comes in is so small! I am already almost halfway through. Pixi definitely needs to make the larger size available here in the States. Full review here

Makeup

Real Techniques Stippling Brush
I've loved practically every Real Technique Brush I've purchased, but I especially love the stippling brush. It provides an amazing finish and it's so easy to use.

Elizabeth and James Nirvana White
I'm super picky about perfumes, but I've been wearing Nirvana White by Elizabeth and James for a good part of the 2015 year. Plus, the bottle is just gorgeous!

Club Clio Kill Black Brush Liner
This liquid liner is everything. I cannot live without this liner! It's the only liner that stays put on my eyes. It's an absolutely must have! Full review here.

Maison Margiela Replica Lazy Sunday Morning Perfume
My boyfriend (who isn't into skincare or cologne at all) surprisingly got me into this brand. While he was accompanying me in Sephora, he spotted the cologne and stated that he really liked the bottle and that the smell emanating from the bottle was intoxicating. Of course he purchased it, and that got me curious to see what other scents they had. I'm in love with Lazy Sunday Morning - it smells like fresh laundry and air. That's the best way I can describe it, so you had better pop into your local Sephora and smell it yourself!

H&M Cream Eyeshadow in Dauphine Truffle
This particular makeup item totally surprised me and what's even more surprising is that this $7 cream eyeshadow from H&M is my favorite eyeshadow product from 2015. Why? Because it's the perfect neutral shade of brown with a tiny bit of subtle shimmer, goes on easily, and lasts all day. Full review here.

Dior Addict Fluid Stick in Ciel Rose
I haven't reviewed this on the blog yet, but I've mentioned in other posts that Dior is one of the brands that I personally think make the best lip products. This particular shade is so flattering and the perfect everyday pink that makes your lips look fuller and healthier. It also lasts a lot longer than the average lip gloss!

Diptyque Candles
2015 was the year that I finally splurged on my first Diptyque candle (which was the black Baies candle) and unfortunately for my wallet, I'm completely hooked. The smell of the candles smell so luxurious and I love how burning a candle from Diptyque can essentially envelope your space in a "room perfume."
