My 2015 Beauty Favorites

Hello everyone! I am probably the last person to write about 2015 favorites but I thought it was appropriate cuz it is still January haha. Most of the products that I will mention I have already mentioned in my blog before but they just need another shout out!

Lets start off with foundation. I have mentioned the Revlon Colorstay so many times but it is my go to foundation. I have tryed out a few others throughout the year and I always just go back to Colorstay. I am on the look out for a new foundation since I have been using this one for about three years and it is time for a change. I love the coverage but the only problem I have with it is the color. I can never find a perfect color for myself and I always look too pink. Do any of you know which shade is light and a bit more warm and yellow toned?

The next products I want to mention are blushes. I have three blushes that I have used constantly last year. The first one is E831E Pearlescent Pink by Wet n Wild. This was my go to summer blush and I literally used it every day of the summer. The pigmentation is awesome and as you can see I hit pan on mine.

The next two are from my Makeup Revolution ultra blush palette. I have the color Sugar and Spice and the first two blushes in the palette  I have been using since fall and I still do on a daily basis. As you can see I also hit pan on one of them and the palette is pretty beat up.

There is only one makeup tool that I want to mention and that is the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. I bought this sponge last spring and I have been using it every day since. It was my favorite way to apply my Colorstay foundation. The only thing I don´t like is that it is a pain to clean and I can never get it looking really clean,  With that being said..ignore its dirtyness in the picture. 

Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 eyeshadow palette was my go to palette. The colors are a dupe for the UD naked 3 palette. These are not the best quality eyeshadows but for my every day needs they work perfectly fine. The colors are beautiful and the price is amazing. I would suggest an eyeshadow primer with these. As you can see in the picture below I have really used mine a lot!

I have tryed a couple of different eyelashes from the drugstore and they just did not work out for me. They were too heavy and uncomfortable on my eyes. Finally I found a store that sells Ardell eyelashes and I was so excited because everyone raves about them. I bought the style 120 Demi black and I was so pleasantly surprised when I put them on. They were so light and comfortable. I didn´t feel them on my eyes at all.

Now lets talk about some lip products. I am a huge Wet n Wild fan and their Megalast lipsticks are AMAZING!!! I have so many colors and I absolutely love them. My most worn are definitely Bare it all, Sugar Plum Fairy and Cherry Bomb. Also Stoplight Red is the perfect red for me.

Another lip product that I definitely have to mention is the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet. If I am not wearing a WnW lipstick then I am definitely weaing this, I can´t say enough good things about this product. It is so comfortable on the lips and lasts a really long time. I have mine in the color Nude-ist and I really want to pick up more shades. 

While we are talking about lips I just want to mention my favorite lip balm. It is the Labello lip butter in Vanilla & Macadamia. I have gone through a couple of these and I use it every morning when I wash my face and every night before going to sleep. It smells really good and it protects my lips very well.

It was so hard for me to narrow down my nailpolishes to a top 5 because there are so many colors that I love. So my favorites in a random order are:

- Bourjois Turquoise block
- Wet n Wild Wear Skinny Jeans (limited edition)
- Ados cosmetics 551
- Catrice (S)wimbledon
- Essence Mandarine Bay

As you can see all the colors are kind of springy but those are just the types of colors that I like to wear year round.

I don´t like to wash my hair often because it is long and curly..and a pain in the butt to style. Dry shampoo is a must have for me because it helps keep my hair clean looking between washes. Batiste dry shampoo is my favorite and I have mentioned it in previous posts. I absolutely love it and it works so well for me.

Last but not least I want to mention the Victoria´s Secret fragrance mist in Amber Romance. I have worn this all summer because it is light and it smells so good!! 

Those would be my favorite products of 2015. As you can see I did not have a favorite mascara or lipgloss. I have tryed a lot but there was nothing that just stood out to me. 

Thank you all so much for reading!!

What I got for my Birthday and Christmas

 Hello everyone!! First of all I want to wish all of you a very happy New Year and I hope you all enjoyed the holidays!

Today I want to show you some things that I got for my birthday and Christmas. My birthday was December 19 which is pretty close to Christmas so I just decided to combine those two into one post.

So I was in need of some house slippers since I was still wearing my flipflops around the house and I actually got two pairs. Both are really warm and cute. I also got some fuzzy socks from my sister and they are just a must have in the winter especially for me since my feet are always so cold!

For my birthday I received two boxes of Rafaello and I love that treat so much, I actually ate both of the boxes in like four days. I also got my first ever Lush product which is the Angels on Bare Skin scrub and I like it a lot.

I did get some clothing items and I bought some of them myself since some people gave me money so I can pick out what I like.

I really needed some black boots and I really like these that I got. The heel is a really nice size and they are perfect for everyday. 

I have been looking at this light pink fuzzy sweater for months and I finally got it. It is really warm and cozy, Also this black and white sweater dress is one of my favorite things that I got. I just love the print and it is a really nice thick material. 

This skirt is the last item that I want to share with you. I love the butterfly print and it is nice for winter since the material is a little bit thicker.

So those would be some of my favorite things that I received for my birthday and Christmas. I got some things that I didn´t take pictures of  like a faux leather jacket, floral leggings, some basic shirts deodorant ect... and ofc my mom always hooks me up with new underwear haha.

What was your favorite gift that you received for Christmas?

Thank you so much for reading!! xoxo
