Best of Beauty 2015

Hi friends! Look who’s finally written their 2015 best of beauty post! It only took a bajillion years…

Asking me to pick my favorite makeup products is like asking me to pick a favorite child—it just can’t be done. I love all of them for different reasons. (Er…most of them, anyway.) That’s why, initially, I wasn’t going to write a 2015 favorites post. January is almost over, everyone else has done it, and I worried no one would want to read it. But then, one of my friends asked me to write it, and here I am. I’ve caved. Not all of these were 2015 discoveries, but I definitely used the heck out of all of them last year! I decided to save my skincare favorites for a future post—I’m long overdo for an updated skincare routine anyhow!

Without further ado, here’s my 2015 All Star Lineup!

Products I’ve Changed My Mind About


As all beauty-junkies know, love can be a fickle thing. Favorites come and go, and products that were once, “the best thing ever!” sometimes lose their wow-factor when newer products come along. As someone who’s constantly testing new formulas, I have a pretty good sense of what I like and dislike, but every so often, that changes.

Here are a few of the items in my collection I’ve changed my mind about, for better or worse.

Requesting Backup


We all have our favorite makeup products. Sometimes, that love fades after a few months. Occasionally, that love elevates a product to “holy grail” status. Even more rare, is the discovery of a product you love sooo much, that you begin to feel strong levels of anxiety at the thought of running out.

In order to prevent any unpleasantness, I always keep a backup of these products in my drawer. You might call them “Holy Grail 2.0.” All of these are products that I have loved for years and years—you’ll probably recognize a few from previous posts. And lucky for you, most of these can be found in the drugstore!
