It was very hard for me to select my 2015 ultimate favorite products in each categories. For example, there could easily have been 5 items or more in the eye shadow palette category alone! (I probably will!!!) So today, I’ll focus on face products and tomorrow it will be all about eyes, brows & lips. If you’ve miss yesterday i.e. the best of the best skincare & tools, you can still catch it (HERE)…
When making this post, I just realized that so many of my top products were never reviewed in previous posts! In fact, I only talked about the Smashbox Primer Water & Kevyn Aucoin’s “The Contour Book, Volume II”. This is very strange … Maybe I’ll have to change my featured product selections 😂 Anyway, with my 2016 Low-Buy, my newest acquisitions will only be sure hits and must-haves… I promise my 2015 top product reviews will come very soon…
♥ SmashBox Primer Water ♥
I have to select the Smashbox Primer Water. I don’t know what is the main quality about this water but it grew on me in 2015. I like the effect that it provides and I love the format. For a lot of people, this primer is kind of a sham but honestly I couldn’t see myself without it. It doesn’t break me out, this is a big bonus ! My review HERE.
♥ Mac Paint Pots ♥
I’m dead serious! If during an emergency I could just take a few items from my place, I would instinctively grab my Paint Pots. Holy Grail, Nirvana, Orgasmic Bliss, call it what you want, but for a perfect eyelid primer, nothing come close to these…
♥ Make Up For Ever Lift Concealer ♥
I have to thank Wayne Goss for introducing this amazing serum type concealer. It’s perfection in a tube. No creasing, stay all day … Pure joy!
Undereye Setting Powder
♥ Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder ♥
Perfect for baking my concealer. No creasing is possible after you’ve applied this powder. So finely milled, this product is remarkable and in a league of its own.
♥ Dr Jart+ Premium BB Cream ♥
This was a hard one to choose because I juggle between two favorites this past year, but I will go with my Dr Jart+ Premium BB Cream. This product is ingenious because it’s a 3-in-1 product that moisturizes, covers & protects my skin.
♥ Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder ♥
For the longest time, I thought that all finishing powders were alike, drugstore or high-end but OMG, I was so very wrong. Such a beautiful finish … Perfection !!!
♥ Kevyn Aucoin The Sculpting Powder ♥
I still love Hoola from benefit but when I apply the Sculpting Powder, I can feel the refinement and the effortless blending ability that go with Aucoin’s formulation! No muddiness is possible with this powder. My review Here.
♥ Tarte Park Ave Princess ♥
I tried so many bronzers this year but Tarte Park Ave Princess remains the most flattering on my fair skin. Since it’s a matte formula, it doesn’t accentuate my fine lines that are starting to settle down 😦
♥ Laura Mercier Rosegold Shimmer ♥
Such a beautiful peachy/nudey color that give my cheeks the most beautiful subtle glow. 100%, my most used of 2015.
♥ Laura Mercier Matte Radiant Highlight in 01 ♥
Hands down, my lifetime favorite highlighter! Seriously, I don’t know how another product could top this one. This powder looks so natural & is ideal for my everyday makeup. For me, this magnificent product puts to shame all the Hourglass & Becca’s of this world!
♥ Caudalie Grape Water ♥
This spray water is hydrating my skin while taking off the powdery effect I may have. If you are surprised that I’m not mentioning MAC Fix Plus, it’s because it breaks me out like crazy.
