Top 10 Best Makeup & Beauty Products & Launches of 2015 in India
The year is about to end and its the perfect time to look back at the hits and misses of the beauty world. Unlike the makeup launches of 2014, 2015 was a bit mediocre in comparison with more overpriced and less interesting products. However, there were still quite a few gems that we certainly cannot live without. So here are the best makeup & beauty products of 2015 that we loved!
Best Makeup & Beauty Products + Launches of 2015 in India
1) Maybelline The Colossal Liner: Price- Rs 425
Maybelline India is always on the forefront when it comes to new launches and the new Colossal Liner is the most kiss-ass launch of 2015. This pen form eyeliner makes lining your easy peasy! If you are a beginner or struggling to apply a liquid liner then you must give this a try!
2) L’Oreal Collection Star Red Lipsticks: Price- Rs 995
Launched in early 2015, the L’Oreal Pure Red Lipsticks endorsed by 7 celebrities was an instant and one of the best makeup launches of 2015. The 7 flattering reds, a red for every skintone has a comfortable matte formula and a great wear time. A personal favorite has to be Pure Scarleto & Pure Garnet which look gorgeous on every skintone. If you love red then this range will spoil you for choice.
3) Maybelline Color Show Go Graffiti Nail Paints: Price – Rs 145
Launched in 10 gorgeous variants, these top coats by Maybelline make nail art a breeze. Surprisingly, we did not review any on HBM but the fact that I own all 10 of these says something. 4 variants come in beautiful pastel shades while the other 6 come in stars, polka dots, flowers etc shaped top coats. They instantly jazz up boring nail paints and for the price, these are unbeatable.
4) Faces Ultime Pro Matte Lip Crayons: Price – Rs 799
Move over Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms, the new Faces Ultime Matte Lip Crayons can easily become your new favorite. They have a super smooth texture which settles into a matte finish that does not feel drying. These also come in a Starry Matte variant however we prefer the matte formula with its rich pigmentation and great shade range.
5) L’Oreal Mat Magique All In One Transforming Powder: Price- 399
L’Oreal Paris is one brand that makes some amazing lipsticks and base products. This super affordable compact comes in 5 shades and controls sebum for a solid 4-5 hours. Finely milled, super smooth and decent coverage make it one of the best everyday compacts in India. A must try if you have normal-oily skin.
Top Makeup & Beauty Launches of 2015
6) Faces Glam On Prime Perfect Foundation: Price- Rs 799
One of the best makeup launches of 2015, this affordable new foundation by Faces is a must try. It has a silky texture which applies evenly and does not settle into pores. The foundation provides medium to buildable coverage with a beautiful satin finish. Available in 5 shades, this foundation looks amazingly natural yet made up, blurring away pigmentation and makes the skin look so much better.
7) Colorbar Deep Matte Lip Creme: Price- Rs 675
Matte lips have been really popular in 2015 and this is one of our favorite matte products. Colorbar Deep Matte Lip Cremes are available in 10 shades ranging from wearable nudes to bright pinks and reds. It has a creamy lightweight formula with a deep matte finish. They somewhat remind us of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams and if you like matte liquid lipsticks then this one is right up your alley. Definitely one of the best makeup & beauty products of 2015.
8) Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper: Price- Rs 245
It makes us so happy to see that brands are finally filling up the void of good brow products in India. The new Maybelline Brow shaper is one of the most affordable brow products which can be used for lining and filling in your brows. It comes in 2 shades- brown and grey. This 2 in 1 brow shaper is the ultimate product for having your brows on fleek, even in 2016.
9) Faces Magneteyes Kajal: Price- Rs 175
We Indians love our kajals and this new faces Magneteyes Kajal is definitely one of the best kajals in India. It is richly pigmented, shows up easily on the waterline and does not budge for a good 8-9 hours. With a pocket friendly price tag and great quality it has become a hot favorite.
10) Colorbar On the Go Makeup Remover Wipes: Price- Rs 400
Probably the only drugstore brand in India which manufactures makeup wipes. These Colorbar makeup wipes easily remove waterproof makeup including eyeliner and mascara. It does not leave any sticky residue and is a must have in everyone’s kitty. Perfect for use in the colder months, while travelling or whenever you feel too lazy to remove your makeup, which is like all the time, right? This one is an absolute life saver.
Some other notable mentions are the Lakme Satin Enrich Lipsticks, L’Oreal Paris Extraordinaire Liquid Lipsticks, Maybelline Baby Lip Candy Wow Lip Crayons, Maybelline The Nudes Palette. Both Revlon and Lakme were pretty disappointing this year with their new launches, especially with Revlon products being quite highly priced.
Anyhoo these were our top 10 picks as the best makeup & beauty products of 2015 in India. Let us know if you’d like to see a list of misses ie the duds of 2015!
