It's a little too early for December favourites, but I wanted to do a round up of the main products I've discovered and fallen in love with this year. Finding a new product that works really well for you is one of the best feelings, and I feel like 2015 has been a breakthrough year for me and beauty products. I picked out five things that have really stood out from the thousands I've spent this year.

Lets start with the base, out of the many primers I've tried this year Le Blanc De Chanel has stood out the most. It has such a gorgeous texture, it leaves the skin feeling smooth and looking luminous. It isn't advertised as a primer but it does claim to be 'multi use.' Personally I find it perfect for really smoothing out my skin before applying my foundation, it also has a really subtle but fresh scent. (That packaging though...)
My next base pick was a foundation from Givenchy, it's the Photo Perfexion foundation- this was the first beauty product I've ever tried from them and my God has it made me want to try everything! This is my holy grail foundation, it never ever fails to impress me. No matter what my skin is like, what primer I use, it always looks flawless. It gives a medium coverage that looks fresh, glowy and natural with an over all satin finish. This product also has a subtle but gorgeous floral scent that doesn't irritate the skin.

Finally, I found a contour product that works on my pale skin. Thank God I purchased the NARS Paloma kit! The shade of bronzer is perfect for those of us that suffer with Snow White syndrome, it isn't orangey or muddy at all, and the lighter powder in the compact is ideal for sharpening up any lines and highlighting under the eyes without adding all the glow. Both powders feel very smooth on the skin, have great staying power and the Paloma contour shade is perfectly pigmented.

This year was also the year of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade, and of course I jumped on the bandwagon. This is now my go to product for my sparse brows, it might not give the most natural finish, but I'm not a natural girl. I mix this with the Brow Wiz and together they make the perfect brow! This was totally a product worth all the hype it got this year. Mine is looking worse for wear, it's just very well loved.

Last, but certainly not least, and without a doubt, MAC's Taupe lipstick has been my most used, go-to shade this year. It's a gorgeous warm toned dark nude, and it goes with pretty much anything I wear or any make-up look I go for. The staying power is amazing much like the pigmentation, the satin finish means it isn't at all drying and I can usually get away with not re-applying all day.

What have your top beauty discoveries been this year?
