Best Beauty & Makeup Products of 2015

Hey Guys,

It’s the last day of this year and it’s the best time to share my beauty favorites all throughout the year. Although I started blogging in the mid of the year but have always been a makeup and shopping freak. This year is very lucky for me as I started my dream project only this year my virtual world of happiness- My Blog *drinks*and i thank each one of you for supporting me in this journey. I will categorize the best products from each category of beauty and makeup. This year we got to see many amazing product launches. I will not categorically talk about only new launches this year. I will enlist my favorites which I have discovered this year and I strongly recommend my readers to use these suiting to their needs.

Best Foundation in India

Best Foundation

Starting with the base first always is the best policy. This year I loved two foundations a lot. The L’Oreal 24H Infallible Foundation is my ultimate favorite and for life. It gives supreme coverage, long stay and beautiful flawless finish. The next new found love this year is the Coloressence HD Foundation which is soon to be reviewed on the blog. This foundation blends like a dream and the finish is so luminous. This is one of the unrecognized and underrated products.

Best Compact Powder in India 2015

Best Compact Powder

No points for guessing the nest compact this year has to be the L’Oreal Mat Magique Transforming Powder, I love it to bits. The oil control, affordability, Package, makes it a winner in my eyes.

Colored Kohl from Maybelline

Lakme Kohl Kajal

Best Kajal

This is one thing without which I can’t step out of the house. Being an Indian girl this is part of my makeup regime Blum 3 I have used many kajals this year right from Faces Long wear to the magnet eyes, the Lotus Color kick to the Eco Stay, the Lakme Absolute and the Eyeconic. There is one budget kajal and one sort of premium.

Best Kajal in budget category is definitely the Magnet Eyes from Faces and the premium category is the Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal. Oh I am in love with both these wonder pencils. 

Best Colored Kajal/kohl

As usual my favorite drugstore brand grabs this award too, the Maybelline Colossal Colored kohls were amazing this year.

Best Mascara for Volume and Curl

Best Mascara

I don’t have too many types of mascara in my stash. But I have loved the Essence Big Lashes Mascara this year. The volume, curl and dark color is sure to die for. The affordable price tag and jumbo colorful packaging is quite attractive.

Zoeva Eyeshadow Palette

EOTD of Zoeva Palette

Best Eye Shadow 

The eye makeup is growing upon me insanely these days; I have started to wear more of it even at work. I have loved the Zoeva Palette and the Makeup Revolution Iconic Redemption 2 palette a lot this year. Though the Nudes from Maybelline is also close to my heart. Other than the palettes I have loved the Inglot Refills they are insanely pigmented and of great quality anf the Coloressence Gold Eye Shadow.

Makeup Revolution Pink Blush Palette Swatches

Best Blush

The blush is always the best way to make the face look fresh and healthy. My ultimate favorite this year is the Makeup Revolution Blush Palette. The amazing range of pink colors and highlights has taken over me and I have earned many compliments whenever I use it. If I choose a mono blush pan, the Maybelline Cheeky Glow is my ultimate favorite for daily wear, its so soft and easy on the cheeks for that healthy flush of color without all that jazz.

Best Affordable Highlighter

Best Highlighter

Again, you must know how much I have loved the Sivanna Colors Highlighter. I apologize for not reviewing it, this will be the first review of the new year I promise. I will not break the suspense today. Hang on to this space for this to check the review of the much awaited highlighter at budget review.

Best Hair Styling Products

I have used the BBlunt Blown Away Volumizing Leave in Spray, it makes the hair voluminous and oh so awesome.

The next favorite is the L’Oreal Liss Ultimate Serum which smoothes, protects and tames the frizz of my hair.

The rare dry shampoos have made their mark in India with the BBlunt Dry Shampo which is quite a revolution of its own.

Best Skincare Products

When it comes to skin care I heart Lotus and Nivea. I have used the Nivea Roll on daily for fairer and odor free underarms, when it comes to winter skin care my skin has felt pampered with the Nivea Moisturizing Soufflé Smooth Sensation and  Nivea Extra Whitening Body Lotion.

The ultimate favorite for my facial skin is the Just Herbs Beauty Elixir. Well you already know how much I have bragged about it in my other posts.

My Favorite Nail Paints

Best of Nails

The best nail paints I have tried this year is the Maybelline Glitter Mania Range which is an instant glam quotient to doll up for an event or party. The Go Graffitti range is the best for adding the fun element. While the Cuccio Nail Color is class apart. The hottest new nail paint launch this season is the Nykaa Nail Paints available in brilliant shades. I have loved it off late. not to orget the Rimmel Whitener and the Colorbar Nail Paint Remover, the remover is so good that i want to hoard more and more of them Mail 1
