15 Favourites from 2015

I told you it was coming - my top 15 of 2015. Some new things, some surprises, and some recurances. But they're all fabulous products, and I hope you enjoy reading about them as much as I enjoy using them. Any reviews will be linked.

Soap and Glory Orangeasm Fragrance
I purchased this right at the beginning of the year as part of a Christmas gift set in the sales, and have worn it *almost* every single weekday this year, and I've only just finished it (and bought a new one!). The tangy, citrus scent is a great morning boost, and it does last for the whole school day.
Soap and Glory Righteous Butter
Soap and Glory are a standout brand for me, and this 'original' product of theirs, the body buttercream in the Pink scent, is just holy grail; the scent lasts, it moisturises my body well, and a large tub lasts forever (or about 6 months!) and is very cost-effective. Five gold stars!
Origins Drink Up Overnight Mask
I have used this all year round as a great skin pick-me-up when it's looking sallow or drained. I love the peach smell, and it really does make my face look more glowy and bouncy, as opposed to tired and dark.

Clean and Clear Dual Action Moisturiser
4 years running! This has to be my number one skincare prodcut ever, as it shrinks my spots down overnight when applied directly, but also works as a lovely daytime moisturiser, or as a mask when my skin is particularly bad. LOVE IT.

Kiko Peach Primer
If you remember, I picked up this primer when I was in Italy in April, and have been using it ever since, as it just works so well as minimising my pores but also keeping my makeup looking good all day long. I've just used it up, so will try something new for the blog, but will definitely be picking up another one for safekeeping!

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation
Oh how I love thee Rimmel foundations! Match Perfection is my most-worn base product as it looks natural but still gives me a good, medium coverage which I can build up if I want, and is also super affordable.

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer
This one came up in 2013 and now it's back at the top - I'm on perhaps my fifth tube of this concealer, as it's fab at covering up spots, redness, pigmentation and dark circles! Just an all-round great product.

MUA Brow Define Gel
A new release in 2015, MUA's tinted brow gel has donned my brows every day since I got it. I love the way it shapes my eyebrows and keeps them tame, and is so easy to use in the morning when you can't really see to fill in your brows anyway.

Maybelline 'Red Essential' Colour Drama Pencil
I did review this back in February, and I;m still in love with it now. This red lip option stays put, is very flattering as it's too bright or flashy, and is super easy to apply in the pencil form - well done Maybelline!

Clarins 'Candy Shimmer' Lip Perfector
This is what I wear on my lips when I can't decide, as it's the most flattering, wearable, non-sticky gloss , and the little sponge applicator makes it so easy and sanitary to apply. These are well worth the money and I hope that 2016 will be the year that I buy a few more.

elf Bronzing Cream
2015 was the year of learning to contour for me (and 2016 probably will be too!) and this elf cream contour shade is perfect for a light bronzey-contour for everyday, or for working full Kim K contouring on an evening out.

Max Factor False Lash Effect
Why are all my favourite mascaras always discontinued!? This in the black/brown shade was stopped this year - however it is still available when they release gift sets, thank God! I love the way this makes my lashes look - fluttery, long and not clumpy or spidery at all. An absolute favourite 2 years running now.

Tresemme Deep Cleansing Shampoo
I love high-street haircare, and this shampoo is my number one, as it gets my scalp really clean whilst not stripping my hair either, and it's so cheap, and such a good product, that I will continue to use it until I find something better, which I doubt I could as this has no cons!

Umberto Giannini Backcomb in a Bottle
Currently waiting to buy the huge bottle of this stuff - it works as hairspray, but adds amazing texture and oomph to my hair at the same time, without the damaging effects of backcombing - I love this product, and it's forever an essential in my handbag, schoolbag and clutch on a night out.

Batiste Dry Shampoo
The King of the dry shampoo is Batiste - nothing compares to you, I love you, and I will forever repurchase you for when I can't be bothered to wash my hair, as you make it look clean and add volume and make it smell good too. Much love from Liz to Batiste. You had a year out in 2013, but I'm so glad that you're back in my favourites.
