When women find a beauty product that works, they don’t keep quiet about it. Or, when one woman is brave enough to bring something back in style, everybody who has been dying to use that product again jumps right on board. A good beauty product spreads like wildfire–wild, glamorous, radiant, glittery, neon fire…You get the idea. It seems beauty bloggers and makeup artists all use the same beloved products. They have their preferred brands, but when some type of product is hitting, you’ll find it on the Instagram, and Snap Chat page of any beautify influencer out there. Here are the beauty products that blew up in 2015.
We’re all fed up with square sponges with awkward edges that we have to jam around our eyes. It is literally like trying to fit a square into a circle. Thank goodness for the egg-shaped sponge known as the Beauty Blender.
If you’re still using pencil, you’re doing it wrong. Pencil barely lasts a few hours, and it doesn’t blend your brow hairs together like a gel does. Brow gel even works to shape your eyebrows the way you want them.

It’s not just for edgy fashion magazine spreads now. It’s for clubbing and brunch. And Instagram, naturally.
Black lipstick has broken out of its S&M and Goth box. Now, women pair black lipstick with ethereal, white flowy dresses and combat boots.
3-D Nail art
If you’re just going to paint your nails one solid color, you can go back to grammar school. Because grown women get little dolphins jumping over sunshine made out of crystals, on their nails now.
Coffee body scrubs
Look up the body scrub hashtag online, and you’ll find thousands of photos of people covered in little black particles. When it comes to the body scrub today, if it’s not coffee, nobody wants it.
Dry touch sunscreen
Sun protection manufacturers are becoming hard pressed to change their sunblock recipes. A few very smart makeup brands came out with dry touch sunscreen, and now the world sees no point in messing with the sticky, greasy traditional stuff.
Avocado conditioner, avocado hair mask, avocado face mask, avocado lotion, avocado moisturizer…We can’t get enough of this creamy green stuff. We’re mistaking guacamole for a body mask.
