Continuing with the theme of January which seems to that of wishlists and endless lists, today I wanted to talk about the 5 brands that I want to try in 2016, which have been on my radar for a while and I think should be on yours also, if you haven’t already tried them.
Also, this is a post in collaboration with three other fantastic beauty bloggers who are also writing their 5 brands that they want to try this year: Elizabeth’s blog is here, you can read Demi’s brands over here and you can find Christina over here. So make sure to check out their lists also!
Now let’s get started!
Anastasia Beverly Hills
Yes, I know what you must be thinking already. A beauty blogger who is not obsessed with her brow wiz or illuminators? You see, unfortunately, I have not had the chance to get my hands on any of her products. Funny enough, Anastasia Soare is actually Romanian, just like myself, which kind of makes me want to try her products even more. As we speak, I have two of her liquid lipsticks coming my way as well as a mini brow wiz which came as a freebie so soon I will get a chance to see what the hype is all about. Also I am really looking forward to trying So Hollywood, which is her golden highlighter- constantly out of stock though. I have heard that it should be back in a couple of months, so I will make sure to keep an eye out and snag it when it’s available again.
Tom Ford is one of those really luxurious brands that you can’t not fall in love with when looking at their products as well as apparently the quality which is well raved about. I have been tempted so many times in particular by his lipsticks and the eyeshadow quads, but the thought of paying £38 on a lipstick simply did not allow me to take the plunge…yet. Also as a massive fan of liquid eyeliner, I heard incredible things about his Eye Defining Pen, so I would love to try that out also.
This is a British brand that a lot of people are probably very familiar with. Again, since starting to watch Youtube, I feel like everyone is talking about them, in particular the fragrances, as they have scents that are very different from other brands, such as Mimosa & Cardamom, Wood Sage & Sea Salt or Lime Basil & Mandarin. Also they have a full range of body products, as well as candles. Definitely one to look forward to, due to their uniqueness!
Last year, I really started understanding skincare a lot better and have upped my game, so this year I want to get even better at it and try and prevent all the bad things that start after the age of 25, which I will turn in May this year. I have heard so many bloggers raving about the Oskia Renaissance Gel as well as the Exfoliating Balm, which is both a physical and chemical exfoliator, which intrigues me so much! Definitely a pricey brand, but it’s all worth it for your skin.
Last but definitely not least, another skincare brand that I keep hearing great things about. Kate Sommervile is an American brand which until recently has been very difficult to get a hold of in the UK, but now they started shipping here which is amazing. Caroline Hirons, who is THE goddess of skincare, is the one that introduced me to the brand, but since then I have read and heard so many other people rave about it, that I’m read to jump on the bandwagon. I am particularly interested in her Exfolikate treatment, which is dubbed ‘the 2 minute Hollywood Facial’, the Retinol night cream as well as the Goat Milk lotion, plus a million other products.
So there you go, here are my 5 brands that I can’t wait to try this year! What are some brands that you are really looking forward to trying this year? Don’t forget to let me know in the comment section below, I’d love to hear your thoughts
Lots of love,
