Brands to try in 2016

2015 has officially come to an end and whilst everyone is thinking of their New Year's resolutions, I'm busy thinking about what brands I'd like to try in 2016. Priorities, eh? ;-) In 2015, I tried a huge amount of brands that I'd never tried before so there's not too many more on my list. I'm slowly making my way through my list and today I'll be sharing a few new products that may land in my shopping basket sometime this year.....

For makeup, I'd love to try something from Laura Mercier. I was having a nosey through my sister's makeup bag the other day and I spotted an LM eyeshadow. I instantly fell in love and I hopped straight onto Brown Thomas' website to have a browse at their eyeshadows. I spotted a baked eyeshadow called 'Terracotta" and I can't stop thinking about. It's quite pricey at €27 but the pigmentation looks like it would be amazing! I've become a bit eyeshadow obsessed recently and another palette I want to try is one from Laura Geller. I've read some great reviews about this palette and her blushes look lovely too.

Speaking of blush, I need to get my hands on the Max Factor creme puff blushes. Word on the street is, they're dupes for the hourglass ambient lighting blushes! Seeing as I'm not going to America anytime soon and it's impossible to get them delivered to Ireland, I won't be trying the Hourglass version anytime soon, so I'll just have to give these a go instead.

There's lots of skincare brands I want to try this year but the one I'm most excited for is Emma Hardie. I've wanted to try her cleansing balm for years so I've decided to finally take the plunge and purchase it with my Christmas money. Keep your eyes peeled for that review {It's gonna be a good 'un!}

It's been a stressful term in school and it's going to get whole lot more stressful with my mocks and Leaving Cert coming up in the next few months, and so a product that sounds perfect is the Kiehls skin rescuer. It apparently "reduces visible signs of stress and flare-ups", which is just what I need as after my Christmas exams my skin has been in awful state {the chocolate consumption over Christmas probably didn't help too, but, shhh don't tell anyone ;-)} Hopefully this will return my skin back to its pre-exam state! My skin is also dry and dehydrated because of central heating so I'm gonna give the Clinique moisture surge a try.

Phew! That was a lot of products to get through but I'm looking forward to trying them all {can't say the same for my bank balance though *wink wink*}
