With their Spring 2016 makeup collection – From Lancome With Love the brand is definitely aiming at the younger audience with the playful illustrations, tins the products come in and pastel shades.

Ok, I am finally doing it! Writing 2015 yearly favourites that is. The thing is when I started writing this post I’ve gathered so many products that I’d be going on, and on about them all. This is why here are 15 I loved the most. 15 since it was 2015, yes, I know…
If I had to choose only 1 product that would probably be Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in 25 Alluring Rose (review and swatches)
Long-time readers know how much I love my blushers. And this year it was all about this one, I’ve barely used anything else. Creme Puff Blush gives that luminous glow that instantly brightens up the complexion. The formula is incredibly soft and smooth and blends into the skin beautifully. I have several shades but Alluring Rose is the love of my [beauty] love.
The other favourite is still my Trish McEvoy Golden Bronzer (review). As you can see from the photo above, it is very well loved. It warms up the complexion without looking orange or muddy. I like the hint of radiance it gives, too.
BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl (review) is still the best glow-and-radiance-in-a-bottle product out there. I usually mix it with foundation to make my skin look “healthy”. This formula and shade = perfection.
If I had to pick only one “foundation” of the year – that’d be Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer (review and swatches), hands down. It is dry skin’s best friend. Clarins know how to
Here is a preview of Lancome’s Christmas 2015 makeup collection, which was inspired by the poetry and the colours of a secret Parisian garden at night. The key shades are of this collection are red, gold and purple.
You can get everything you need for a festive celebration – shimmering eye shadows, sparkling top coat for lashes and nails and beautiful lip colours.
I personally would love to have a Pourpre Aura eye liner and the lipsticks. Lancome lipsticks are some of my favourites.

Lancôme L’ABSOLU ROUGE DÉFINITION, $30.50
I really loved the video of Lisa Eldridge creating the look on Caroline de Maigret who collaborated with Lancome to bring out a AW 2015 makeup collection which is all about the Parisian chic.
Speaking of Parisian chic, I’ve had a book How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style, and Bad Habits written by Carloine and her girlfriends for some time now, and I should definitely read it at some point soon.
I am sure that I am not the only one who wants to play with the collection after watching this video… So what are the products?
