Shop My Favourites

Although I don't do monthly favourites, I love reading bloggers' round up's at the end of the year (and yes that's your cue to link me yours in the comments!). I'm splitting my 2015 beauty favourites into makeup and skincare, so for all cosmetic lovers, lets' get stuck in to some delicious lippies and the like.

IOPE Air Cushion. Picking the ultimate foundation was hard, so I've chosen two (ish), the first of which is this gorgeous IOPE cushion compact. You can check out my review for full details but it's just an exquisite all-rounder. Don't be fooled by it's simple, perhaps less-than-luxe packaging, the formula, staying power, coverage and lightless is just superb.

Tom Ford's Traceless Foundation Stick is my next pick. The stick formula is really convenient for a start and the product itself is lovely and creamy, giving you a beautiful finish that looks uber natural and beautifying. They say a medium to full coverage but a) I sheer it out a lot, b) it's no Double Wear. Expect a review coming up! It's surely pricey, in fact, pretty sickeningly pricey but if you're a splurger, it's a keeper.

Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in New Moon (review). I'm infatuated with this eye colour. It's incredibly beautiful and fiery and really versatile, taking me from day to night. You can edge it towards brown, bronze, copper or rose gold like I've done in my Christmas Makeup 2015, an eye look I think I'll be wearing for New Year festivities too, I love it!

Estee Lauder Enlighten EE Cream (review). It feels like I've been using this for the longest time but it looks like I picked this up early 2015?! How time flies. So of course it's made my yearly favourites. It's brightening, perfecting and has an SPF of 30, the ultimate no-makeup-makeup for me.

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner. I think black liner is one of those makeup products that I feel like I'll never rest until I find the perfect one. And 2015 is the year that I find it! Longwearing, super intense and black, a precise applicator, everything I want in a liner.

Aerin Rose Balm Lipsticks. There aren't as many reviews of this around so I'll definitely be doing one myself, but it's a darn good lipstick. Packaging perfection, formula to die for, don't worry I'll be giving you full details shortly so keep your eyes peeled!

Kevyn Aucoin Creamy Sculpting Duo (review). My favourite cream highlight and my favourite cream contour. Pretty good that they arrive in the same palette. 

Chanel Joues Contraste Blushes. For a powder, these blushes are as seamless as the best cream products around. Glistening, multi-faceted, their Coup de Minuit makes the most gorgeous powder highlight, I nearly added it into this roundup on it's own!
