2015 Favorites: Makeup, Nails & Fragrances

Yesterday I shared with you some of my skincare favorites from 2015 and today I'm back with lots of makeup, nails, and perfume faves, to see what made the list, click.......

Eye Makeup:
Can you tell that I like neutral shadows?
1. Charlotte Tilbury The Dolce Vita Luxury Palette: Great high-end neutral palette.
2. Nudestix Go Bronze Metallic Eye Color Set: Pigmented and long-lasting, these eyeshadow crayons are awesome!
3. Lise Watier Summer 2015 Rivages Eyeshadow Palette: Hands down my most used eyeshadow palette this year, too bad it's limited edition!
4. Shu Uemura ShuPalette Nude Palette: It was about time that Shu Uemura released a nude palette!
5. Make Up For Ever x Adreja Pejic Artist Shadow Quad: Not only a great collab, the formulation is superb!
6. Too Faced Natural Matte Eye Palette: If you love mattes then this is the one! The formulation is soft and creamy, not at all dry or chalky.
Eye Makeup Favorites from 2015
Cheek Products:
My most used cheek product of 2015 was still the Clarins Blush Prodige in "Tawny Pink", but below are some new loves.
1. Chanel Sunkiss Ribbon Blush Harmony: Technically a Spring 2016 product, but since I reviewed this blush in 2015, it's definitely a top favorite on this list.
2. MAC Faerie Whispers "Sunshine Pearl" Highlighter: My gosh this is a beautiful highlighter; the formulation is so beautiful and creamy too!
3. L'Oreal True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminators: These beautiful cream highlighters have an amazing wear!
4. MAC Wash and Dry "Hipness" Blush: This is such a pretty rose coral, and that packaging....!
Cheek Favorites from 2015
Lip Products:
2015 was the year I fell in love with roses and berries!
1. Marc Jacobs Le Creme in "Je T'aime": The color, the pigmentation, the wear, the packaging.... how can this lipstick get any better?
2. L'Oreal La Lacque in "201 Lacque-y Charm": The formulation is not the best but this color is so great for everyday!
3. Dior Rouge in "Continental": A great my-lips-but-better shade!
4. YSL Pop Water Glossy Stain in "206": This is a new shade addition to the Glossy Stain range for Summer 2015. Such a pretty and fresh pink!
5. Sephora + Jem and the Holograms Liquid Lipstick in "To the Rescue": Part of a set, this liquid lip color is a-ma-zing! I got compliments everywhere I went! I sincerely wish this would be available on its own!
6. NARS x Steven Klein in "No Shame": Such a gorgeous berry with the most smooth, pigmented, and lightweight formulation!
Lip Favorites from 2015
Nail Polishes:
So many shades to choose from but in terms of color and formulation, these were the best!
1. OPI Hawaii Collection in "This Color's Making Waves": Gorgeous blue shimmer with flecks of golden red sparkles.
2. Yves Rocher Summer 2015 in "Anthracite Iridescent": Pigmented (almost one-coater) oil slick metallic.
3. Essie Fall 2015 in "Leggy Legend": Such a breathtaking golden bronze metallic.
4. Dior Fall 2015 in "Miroir": Looking for the reflective silver foil? This is the one!
5. Formula X in "Alchemy II": Complex and unique rose gold bronze metallic.
6. CND Spring 2016 in "Art Basil": Dusty green teal with flecks of gold and pink glitter.
Nail Polish Favorites from 2016
There weren't too many fragrance standouts this year but the two of these are definitely noteworthy!
1. Marc Jacobs Decadence: A beautiful fragrance with such a unique and stunning bottle, which can actually be toted around with its metal strap!
2. Burberry My Burry Festive Edition: As if the original My Burberry released early this year was not beautiful enough, this holiday edition actually came with glitters!

Fragrance Favorites from 2015
Other Favorites:
Here are some miscellaneous favorites from 2015 that didn't quite fit in any of the above categories.
1. Guerlain Baby Glow BB Cream: The formulation is so smooth and the coverage is just beautiful!
2. Sephora Luxe Lashes: Hands down the best pair of lashes I own!
3. Body Glide Anti-Chafing Balm: Man am I glad I found this! Summer-chafing be gone!
4. Stila Stay All Day Precision Glide Brow Pencil: The packaging literally broke apart but the formulation is great and the "Ebony" shade is perfect for black-haired gals!
