As we bid farewell to 2015 we welcome in a new year full of new experiences, new memories, new opportunities and of course new products. But a new year doesn’t mean we have to completely clear out our beauty bags! Here’s six beauty finds from 2015 that are worth investing in for the new year.
Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick, Red Revival:
Red lipstick is an absolute beauty essential for any girl. It is the universal go-to colour when you need to spice up your outfit or compliment your hair. Any smart girl knows you can never have too many shades of red lippy, however this little beauty seems to be the perfect shade for every occasion!
Rimmel 60 seconds nail polish, Rain Rain Go Away:
For any woman on a mission, who’s constantly on the go (or just impatient) – this one’s for you. This nail polish doesn’t keep you waiting around immobile. This nail polish lets you get on with life, requiring only a few minutes of your precious time. After searching for the perfect combination of subtle, soft-beige and nude – this has to be a winner.
Lush, Charity Pot hand & body lotion:
Nothing beats smooth skin and nothing is more satisfying than glowing smooth skin. After doing the rounds, trying multiple moisturisers and lotions, this baby had me coming back for more. It applies well and leaves your skin feeling extremely rejuvenated. It works wonders for dry skin and leaves a lovely lingering scent when applied.
Bondi Sands, Self-tanning foam (Light/Medium):
Being pale in summer isn’t fun. Going and getting a spray tan also isn’t always fun, nor convenient for a girl on the go. When a little colour is needed, Bondi Sands provides the goods. Out of all the self-tanning products (based on price and results) this would have to be the favourite. It’s also less inclined to stain the skin and seems to wash off more naturally than other products I’ve tried previously. Be sure to indulge in an exfoliating frenzy prior to tanning and grab a tanning buddy to ensure you don’t miss a spot!
Clinique Superbalanced Foundation, Ivory 03
The struggle for the perfect foundation is one we all know too well. Over the years I’ve dumped many foundations over rough application, poor coverage and learnt the heart break of buying a foundation that is just not compatible with your skin tone. The Clinique Superbalanced foundation, however, ticks all the boxes of what a foundation should be. The foundation is oil free, provides a good level of coverage (without looking to heavy) and is more natural. It also doesn’t dry out your skin, or look powdery on application.
Rimmel Day-2-Night Mascara:
I am forever being complimented and asked how I get my lashes so lush and I owe it all to this little gem (and partially to good genetics). This mascara is great for both lengthening your lashes and adding volume. This two in one weapon will have your eyelashes fluttering in the breeze, attracting all kinds of eyelash envy (no fake eyelashes required).
