My favourite beauty products of 2015

Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette

What a year 2015 has been for beauty. There have been some amazing releases so I thought I'd have a look back and talk about some of my favourites. One of my most recent favourites, and a brand I've only recently discovered, is Zoeva. In particular the Cocoa Blend palette, which I absolutely adore. I have been using the palette on a daily basis and I particularly liked this rose gold eye make-up look I created with it, what do you think? I was a very lucky girl and received the En Taupe palette for Christmas from my boyfriend, which I can't wait to use!

Barry M always knock it out of the park and I particularly loved its new Gelly Hi-Shine range, which made really lovely alternative Christmas nails, and its release of new glitter polishes, which were perfect for a more traditional Christmas nail look. I was also really impressed with its autumn offerings in its Speedy Quick Dry range. The shades on offer were just perfect for the autumnal time of year and I can't wait to see what the brand has up its sleeve for 2016.

Much like 2014, 2015 was a great year for Makeup Revolution. This year I particularly enjoyed its eyeshadow palette offerings, especially the New-trals vs Neutrals palette, which contains some gorgeous autumnal shades. The brand's sub-company I Heart Makeup also released the Pink Fizz palette, which contains the perfect pink champagne-esque eyeshadow colours. It was a great discovery for me as I don't usually go for pink eye looks but this has definitely changed my mind. The Unicorns Unite lipsticks were also a popular product this year and one of my most liked photos on Instagram. The colours are super magical looking and they have great pigmentation and staying power.

Seventeen Cosmetics was another brand that did great things this year. I particularly loved its Endless Effects Nail Kit, which I stumbled across in Boots one Sunday afternoon. I was super impressed with the price and it brought the fun back into nail painting with its fab effects and colours. I would totally recommend picking up the kit if you come across it. It's one of my absolute favourites! I also gave Seventeen's Cheek Stamp Blush and Define & Conquer palette a try, but one of my absolute faves of the year was its Easy on the Eye Palette. It has become a palette I use regularly and the blue/purple/green make a nice alternative to the usual browns/greys I wear.

Another palette I really loved and a brand I only discovered recently was Eye of Horus' Sheba Mystical Goddess Palette. I have to admit when it arrived I was surprised by how tiny it was but the shades are absolutely lovely and helped me create such a lovely purple eye look, something I wouldn't usually wear.

Aside from makeup there was a skincare brand that I discovered and have really enjoyed this year and that is Vichy. It has become a brand that now features heavily in my daily skincare routine. The Aqualia Thermal Range has really helped my skin moisture wise this year and Purete Thermale range has cleared it of any imperfections, which I'm super happy about!
