2015 Favorites!

Hello everyone!

My goodness time has just flown by! I can’t believe it’s already 2016! Anyone make any New Years resolutions? Mine is to blog more often!

Speaking of blogging more often, today I’m going to share with you some of my favorite products for the whole year of 2015. I really tried to limit how much I picked, cause otherwise I would be here all day! A lot of these will be familiar to you guys already, but I feel like it’s worth bringing up why I like them so much, haha.

On to the favorites!

Beauty Favorites:

2015 Favorites

My first favorite for the year has got to be the Naked Basics palette by Urban Decay!

You guys hear me rave about this constantly, and for a good reason. It’s just so awesome! The shadows are of an amazing quality and extremely versatile, and the packaging and shade selections make it the go-to palette whenever I travel. I seriously never travel without it, haha. It really is my most used and favorite palette, and if I lost it tomorrow I wouldn’t hesitate to buy a new one immediately.

My next favorite is the Pony X Memebox Shine Easy Glam 1 palette.

I’ve begun using this palette almost daily the past few weeks, and it has also become a product I bring with me whenever I travel! The shadows are just so pretty and versatile that it has become another palette I default to whenever I don’t know what eyeshadow to use. Love it! I also have a full review of it here.

My next two favorites are actually the same thing, but different colors. They are the Etude House Fresh Cherry Lip Tints!

Etude House Fresh Cherry Tints

These tints are just so easy to wear and easy to apply! Whenever I can’t decide on what color I want to wear, I break out one of these. I’ve talked about them before on my blog, so I won’t go into too much detail about them here, haha.

Another lip favorite is also from Etude House, and it’s a lipstick from the Dreaming Swan collection in the shade PP502 Releve Purple.

This formula is just so easy to apply! Even though it’s a touch on the dryer side, I really enjoy wearing it because it lasts so much longer on me! And the color is just so beautiful too!

I also enjoyed one more lipstick immensely this year, and it’s the Pony X Memebox Pony Blossom Lipstick in the shade #2 Spring Romance.

I’ve already reviewed this on my blog here, so I won’t go into too much detail about it. I really love it though! I wear it all the time, haha.

I also have been loving the Pony X Memebox Easy Mix Block blush in Galaxy Pink, which I also reviewed before.

It’s just a perfect everyday color for people with fair skin tones like me. So natural and pretty!

My last favorite is a skincare one, and its the Etude House I Need You Royal Jelly Sheet Masks!

I got these when I had a layover in Korea this past summer, and boy, I am so glad I picked them up! First of all, these ones fit my face really well, unlike some brands like Skinfood or Tony Moly (which I still love by the way, I just have to use a silicone mask for them to stay put). They also have this amazing floral-honey scent that reminds me of the samples I tried from the Skinfood Royal Honey line! I could just sit there and smell them all day, haha. They also are super moisturizing and make my skin feel super hydrated and soft after I use them, so I definitely want to pick up more of these once I run out!

Non-Beauty Favorites:

My first set of favorites are actually two games I have mentioned before! Besides my addiction to Animal Crossing in general, this year Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer was released!

HHD 1ACHHD 2

I love just decorating the inside and outside of the villagers houses! It’s so therapeutic for me, haha.

ACHHD Tangy 1ACHHD Tangy 2

Here’s an example! Tangy’s beautiful home!

And the next game I love is Fantasy Life!

Fantasy Life 3DS

It’s also adorable like the Animal Crossing games, but is super super addicting! I’ve already logged over 70 hours on it, haha. It’s just fun to be able to play an RPG that is actually really cute!

My next favorite is the LG Tablet that I took over from my parents, haha.

I started using it as an e-reader this summer during my trip to Asia, and I’ve been loving it ever since! Before this, I never really thought I would want a tablet or an e-reader for myself, but now I can’t believe I waited so long! It’s so awesome and convenient!

I also want to mention just how much I love the K-pop group Got7.

Got7 Albums

Still loving their music! They’ve also got me listening to other groups that I never really tried before, so I’m really glad I got into them, haha.

My last favorite was my trip to Japan and Thailand this summer!

Both countries were so beautiful and the people were all super friendly! I will never, ever forget the time I spent there, and I hope I can visit more countries in the future! One thing I really miss though, are the mangoes from Thailand. OMG, they were the best mangoes I’ve ever had in my entire life! I wish I could eat them again…

Yes, these mangoes. Green, yellow…all so delicious!!

So that’s it for my 2015 Favorites! There isn’t really much I haven’t talked about already in this list, but I felt it was worth mentioning the things that stood out the most!
