2015 FAVOURITES: Blush & Contours!

My final post in my 2015 Beauty Favs series!  We’re ending on a creamy, golden high with my favourite highlighters, contours and blushers from the year!

Kiko Dazzling Highlighter

Before I get on to saying why I love this – I want you to know it’s currently on sale in Kiko stores so if there’s one near you then definitely pop in and pick it up!  

This is a little stick of highlighting goodness.  It glides the most perfect golden shimmer on to the skin and the tube makes application really easy. Love this!

Illamasqua Gel Sculpt in Silhouette

When Illamasqua launched their Gel Sculpts at the beginning of the year they made quite a stir in the blogging world (you can read my full post on them here).  I personally hadn’t seen anything quite like them – a stick blush/contour but with a gel consistency.  I fell in love with the perfect contour shade that Silhouette provides and always use Alex Box’s method of applying this by rubbing the stick on the fatty bit of palm under your thumb and then press into your cheekbones – a perfect fit!

Becca Highlight/Lowlight Palette

I only recently discovered this palette and don’t know how I went so long without it!  The contour shade looks quite intimidating but it’s honestly the perfect contour for my pale complexion.  It’s love!

Nars Highlighter in Albatross

I bought this on my birthday in the summer and love it for it’s gentle golden shimmer that looks beautiful on all skin tones.

Kiko Velvet Touch Creamy Stick Blush in #08

I’ve really developed a thing for stick cheek products, haven’t I!  I mainly love this blusher for the shade – it’s a gorgeous dusky tea rose is what I would describe it as.  The consistency of this cream blush is lovely – I tend to swirl it around on my blush brush and gently buff into the apples of my cheeks for a natural flush of colour.

There we have it!  A week of my entire 2015 Favourite Beauty Products.  I really hope you’ve enjoyed this mini-series and if you would like full reviews of anything mentioned, just leave me a comment or send me a tweet and I’ll get on it!

Do you have a favourite blush/contour/highlight of the year?

    I've never tried any Nars or Kiko products but I'd love too! Velvet touch looks like such a beautiful shade. The Becca highlight/lowlight looks like a sleek palette dupe, I wonder what they're like in comparison?

    I really need to try the Illamasqua sculpting gel. I've seen it used in so many Youtube makeovers and it looks amazing.

    I'd love to try a Gel Sculpt type product to see if I like it more than powder contour! And Albatross always look so dreamy… when I feel the need to treat myself I might throw caution to the wind and buy it one day! 😉 x
