1. Sleek Face Form Contouring Kit

I love using this palette as it has everything a gal could need for highlight, contour and blusher. It is so affordable at €9.99 aswell.

2. Ziaja Cocoa Butter Lotion

This is my go to body lotion, i just love it. It provides amazing moisturisation, it penetrates deep into the skin, leaving it feeling soft and supple. Retails at €5.99 which is great value as you get alot of product.

3. Botanics Radiance Balm

The world and it's mammy wanted this product when it was been talked about, it's a cheper alternative to Mac's strobe cream and has many uses. It can be used under or over foundation, as a primer, a highlighter or over moisturiser. Love this product. Retails at €7.99 but sometimes on offer for €3.99

4. Sleek Gold I Lust Palette

I recently added this to my collection but it has been a staple in my make up bag since. I love the pigment of the shadows. I have blue eyes and gold and copper are amazing on them. This palette is a limited edition palette which features 6 different gold shades. There are 4 shadows and 2 creams. Retailing at €9.99 it is amazing value and loved by Marissa Carter of Cocoa Brown.

5. Cocoa Brown Instant Tan Gel

A few months back I attended the #PassionPersistencePink event where Marissa Carter launched her two new Cocoa Brown Instant Tan gels, and I have to say I love these new products. The shimmer one is great for adding as a highlight to areas such as legs, collar bone and the matte is a gorgeous shade.

6. Essence Gel Nail Polish

The essence gel nail polish range was introduced last year and has been a roaring success since. I love these polishes, the brush is great, it helps to create that perfect arch and they retail for only €1.79. Pigment is great and the polish when used with the base and top coat they last for over 4-5 days.

7. Bioderma Micellar Water

I love this stuff, its so good for removing make up when you are utterly feeling lazy. It retails at €5.50 for 100ml and all you need to do is soak a cotton pad and then wipe your face and wahlah its clean!

8. Primark Make Up Brushes

Everyone loves a good bargain and boy oh boy are these a steal. These brushes will set you back maximum €2.50 each and they are amazing. The contour brush is the perfect shape for contouring and highlighting, while the stippling brush just glides over the skin and stipples the foundation in perfect to give an airbrushed effect.

9. Neostrata Glycolic Peel

Neostrata Glycolic Treatment Peels are wipes infused with an Alpha Hydroxy Acid which breaks down the skins mantle forcing it to desquamate and regenerate skin cells. It removes any roughness or uneven skin texture and promotes healthy new skin cells. I love using these as my skin is great after a complete treatment of these. Retailing at in or oaround €40 for a pack of 4 they are excellent value as you use 1 a month until the course is complete.

10. Tomitago 5 in 1 elixir

Tomitago 5 in 1 elixir is a new product i got a few weeks back, this is a master of all talents, it can be used as a serum, moisturiser, primer, etc. It absorbs into the skin and feels so luxurious, my skin has been gleaming since using it.

11. Nivea Double Effect Eye Make Up Remover

I have been loving this as my eye make up remover. Gel liner can be stubborn to remove but not with this baby, it just glides off the skin and all the eye make up is removed. Retails at €4.99 and is excellent value as you only need a small amount.

12. Babydoll Tan Goddess

I'm not a huge tan wearer but i do like the odd tan for a special event. I was gifted this in a goody bag and I have to say its lovely. There is no horrible tan smell, it applies evenly and dries instantly, gives a lovely golden colour and wears off evenly.

13. Loreal Skin Perfection Cleansing Oil

I was never a fan of cleansing oil untili starrted college where i use Dermalogica Pre Cleanse, but i tried this out as a cheaper alternative and I love it. It removes make up in a jiffy. It literally melts it off in the palms of your hands. Fab value at under 5 euro.

14. Urban Decay Matte Lipsticks in Stark Naked and 1993

I saw these a few months back and fellin love with 1993 and Stark Naked, these new matte lipsticks by Urban Decay are the business, they are moisturising but matte. They feel amazing on the lips and look fantastic. They retail at €19 each which is great for such a good quality product.

15. Catrice Liquid Camouflague Concealer

Lastly my Catrice Liquid Concealer, i love this stuff, its a budget beauty buy but its amazing for concealing and brightening under the eyes. It retails at under 5 euro which is great value. 

Those are my top 15 of 2015. I hope you all enjoyed and let me know if you like any of the products I chose.
