So today I'll share all my makeup/beauty favorites of 2015. I really tried to keep this list as short as possible, and I guess I did a good job at that, so only the best products will be mentioned. Curious to see what my favorites were last year? Keep on reading..

Loreal telescopic
L'oreal telescopic mascara
Some people hate this mascara, others love it. I never really had the "wow" effect with a mascara. My lashes didn't look really long and most of the time they were sticking together. Until I tried this mascara. It makes my lashes look longer and it keeps them separated. Love it!

NYX soft matte lipcream in cannes and stockholm

These beauties are in my collection for quite a while now and I love them! I have the shades "Stockholm" and "Cannes". They feel so soft and lightweight on my lips and don't make my lips feel dry, even though they are matte. In my opinion I like these a lot better than the liquid lipsticks I've tried so far, because they are a lot more comfortable to wear. Definitely going to add a few more soon! NYX lippencils and the butterglosses are also great by the way. Really recommend trying these out too!

Nivea men aftershave as primer

Maybe you have seen my article on this product already. After seeing Nikki Tutorials using this as a primer I had to try it out too: and I seriously love it! It makes my skin feel so smooth, like no other primer does, and it makes my makeup go on a lot better. (click here for a full review)

Anastasia beverly hills cream contour kit in light
Anastasia beverly hills cream contour kit "light"
This beauty I bought last month, and even though I don´t use it on a daily basis, I can definitely call it a favorite. Every time I use it it makes my makeup look so flawless. It doesn´t look heavy or cakey in person, but also in pictures it looks amazing. I don´t even need to use a filter, haha!

Laura Mercier setting powder in translucent
Laura Mercier setting powder "translucent"
Also this beauty I didn't buy long ago, but I love it! It sets my undereye perfectly and it makes it look very soft and smooth. It makes it look flawless! Another powder I really like, which is a cheaper alternative, is the ELF HD loose powder.

Kiko watereyeshadow in 208
And now my last makeup favorite: the kiko watereyeshadow in 208. This was my favorite highlighter last year. (Click here for a full review)

This year I tried out LUSH for the very first time. I bought Angels on bare skin (click here for a review), Ultrabland (click here for a review) and the Magnaminty mask and I really love all of them. Lush is a great brand and I'm definitely going to try out more of their products next year.

Favorite perfumes
There are so many perfumes I really love, but over the past year I mainly used YSL black opium and Dior hypnotic poison. Both have a really warm smell and are more winter perfumes. If you like to wear a heavy perfume (even throughout the day) then you should definitely try these.
