My favourite discoveries SO FAR this year




We're half way through the year, so I thought it was a good time to look back at the new products that have come into my life so far this year & choose my favourites. I did a similar post at the end of 2014, which you can read here. I will do another at the end of the year for discoveries from the second half of the year. I have mainly make-up items here, but also some body & nail items too. So let's get started! 


Smashbox Step by Step Contouring Stick Trio: I reviewed these here and have been loving them ever since! They make contouring so easy and I would recommend them to everyone. I dread the day I finish them! I know they also do a powder version so if you don't like cream products on your face, then they might be worth checking out.

Lauren's Way Dark Bronzing Lotion: This is a recent discovery, but I have to say it is the best tan I have ever used - even surpassing my previous fave: Xen Tan. This tan applies very evenly to give a streak-free, golden tan with no dark patches. It also fades very evenly, without the need for an abrasive scrub and the smell is pleasant too. An absolute 10/10 for me.

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette: I fell in love with this palette as soon as I saw it and have used it very regularly ever since. I adore the pigmentation, how buttery the shadows are and the variety of both cool and warm tones. Love, love, love this palette! My review is here.

Beautyblender: I totally under-estimated the power of this product! It totally lives up to the hype surrounding it and delivers a very flawless finish. It takes a little longer to apply foundation using this rather than a brush, but it is worth the effort. My review is here.

Hourglass Primer Serum: Oh how I love this product! This is a game-changer and I bought it at a time that my skin really needed some extra hydration. I have reviewed it here.

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipstick in Lost Cherry: I adore everything about this lipstick - the colour, the fact it is non-drying, the staying power, how comfortable it is to wear! Everything! I've reviewed it here.

L'Occitane Tonic Body Oil: This is a relatively recent purchase, but I have been LOVING it! It is so lightweight, yet very moisturising and feels very refreshing on the skin. I have reviewed it here.

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow: This palette is all kinds of amazing! Both the contour and highlight are very flattering shades and they are buttery soft, Review here.

Rimmel Finishing Touch 3D Plumping Top Coat: This is a brilliant top coat and is really affordable. It makes my polish last longer than most other top coats I have tried. I know I will be regularly repurchasing this!

I'd love to know your favourite discoveries so far this year? Have you used any of the products I've been loving?
