Beauty Favorites 2015

Hello Everyone!



It's that time of year again when I  share my favorite beauty products for the year. Once again this year I'm so proud of myself for getting this done early! I just wanted make sure I had enough time to get this posted since the year will be over soon.

Eyeshadow Palettes


- Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette 
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Artist Palette
- Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 Palette 
- Doll 10 Cheek to Chic Contour and Blush Palette 
- Missy Lynn Baked Eyeshadow and Highlighter Palette 


It was so hard to choose between the Naked palettes, but this year I realized that I use and love the Naked 2 Palette the most! I think with the Doll 10 palette I finally found a bronzer that works well with my complexion. It looks more natural on my skin and doesn't leave me looking orange lol.

Blush


- BH Cosmetics Floral Blush Duo in Iris


 I got this blush over the Summer and, I wear it quite often. The colors are so pigmented!

Lipsticks


- Revlon Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie 
- MAC Twig
-MAC Faux
- MAC All Fired Up
- MAC Pink Pigeon 

These are a few of the lipsticks I wore a lot this year. It was so hard to chose which lipsticks would make my favorites list! Twig goes with so many of the makeup looks that I create and it's a great nude color!

Skincare Products


- Cetaphil DermaControl Oil Moisturizer 
- Palmer Cocoa Butter Formula Moisturizing Body Oil

I typically use the DermaControl Oil Moisturizer as  a face primer for my makeup. I love how it's non greasy and it helps my makeup last longer. The Moisturizing Body Oil,  is great for using in my bath water. 


- Spectrum Organic Coconut Oil (Refined)

This coconut oil has so many uses! I wrote a post about it back in February. I primarily use this coconut oil as a makeup remover, on my hair, and on the cuticles of my nails to help strengthen them.


- Clarisonic Mia 1


I have noticed such a difference on my face since I've started using the Clarisonic Mia 1. I seriously see why so many people rave about this device. It's definitely worth the money. 


What are some of your favorite beauty items for 2015?

Great list of favorites Pilar!! I had a hard tone narrowing down lipsticks when I made my list for my yearly favorites too. There's just too many good ones to choose from!! And some goes for palettes lol!

Pilar said...

Thanks Jackie! BH Cosmetics palettes are so pigmented! The only palette I own from them I dislike is the 28 color neutral eye palette. It lacks pigmentation and the colors fade quickly. I try to keep coconut oil around! Mac lipsticks are my favorite brand to wear!

Pilar said...

Thanks Andrea! I want to try liquid lipsticks! I've heard so many positive reviews about them!

Pilar said...

Thanks Ashley! It was so hard to pick my favorite lipsticks and eyeshadow! I wanted to choose them all lol! I sat down and thought about the makeup products that I used the most. Twig has definitely been one of my favorite lipsticks this year! Thanks again for that recommendation. I want to add Whirl to my collection as well!
