Best in Beauty - Make Up favorites 2015

The 'Best in' series is a selection of my personal favorite products that I have enjoyed all year along. These need not be 'new launches' or 'new' in the beauty industry, but they have been my absolute favorites. Also as a side note, I would like to add that few of the products mentioned here are yet to be reviewed on the blog, but they are tried, tested and well loved. I have divided the series into 3 part.

Best in Beauty
Best in Skincare
Best in Bath and Body, Hair and Nails

I am huge skincare junkie and I love to try tons of new stuff. So I enjoy putting together 'Best in Skincare' post more than 'Best in Makeup'. As far as makeup is concerned, I don't experiment a lot. I do try different brands, but when it comes to color selection, I end up buying the same hues and shades. It takes a lot for me to step out of my comfort zone (with regards to makeup). As far as skincare, lotions and potions are concerned, give me anything and I will become your human lab. Trust me!

PRIMER: Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer
FOUNDATION: L'ORÉAL Visible Lift Serum Absolute Foundation
POWDER FOUNDATION: CHANEL Double Perfection Lumiere 
TINTED MOISTURIZER: Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer
CONCEALER: NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder for setting this Concealer, Smashbox Photo Op Under eye Brightener (this dude always works for me)

I like to read these kinds of posts. They give ideas as to what things others are enjoying, that I would want to try in near future. I hope you enjoy reading this little list.
