The best products of 2015 - mid range and luxury

Top high end beauty products of 2015
It still feels like Christmas to me (I'm refusing to let go) despite the fact we're now well underway in January! Following on from yesterday's post on my top budget beauty products of 2015, I've pulled together my favourites from the higher end price bracket. Apologies to your bank balances in advance...

Aurelia Skincare Cell Revitalise Night Moisturiser* - if you suffer with dry or dehydrated skin, make this night cream from Aurelia your new BFF. It feels quite rich to the touch, but sinks in quickly and will leave you with THE softest skin. It's also free from parabens, mineral oils, silicones, sulphates and a whole host of other less desirable ingredients. £42

Dermalogica Redness Relief Primer* - I'd never finished a primer until I came across this one. I'm now on my third tube! Most green-toned primers end up leaving a slight green tinge to the skin, but this one miraculously disappears once applied to the skin but still manages to reduce the appearance of redness. £38.50

Sunday Riley Luna Oil* - there's been a lot of hype around Luna which may put some people off, but I promise you it's well deserved. The gentle retinols in this unusual blue oil work their magic overnight to leave you with fresher, brighter looking skin in just a few days. £85

Fresh Soy Face Cleanser - foaming cleansers have tended to be a no-no for me for years until I discovered this one from Fresh. It's very gentle, won't dry your skin out and is lovely to use first thing in the morning in the shower. I was originally given a bottle as a PR sample, but have bought this again and again myself, which really is a testament to how good it is! £30

DHC liquid liner - another year and another mention for this bad boy. If you like to wear eye liner and don't have this in your makeup bag, you're missing out. It's hands down the best one I've ever used down to it's deep black colour, flexible felt pen nib and that fact it never seems to dry out. £16

Urban Decay Gwen Stefani palette* - Urban Decay's most recent palette has proved to be a huge success and although it's a limited edition, I believe there are still a few in stock on various sites (buy one quick!). The selection of nude/gold shades are so easy to wear and the few pops of colour they added in makes it just that little bit different. £40

Burberry Kisses - as you may be able to tell, I have a bit of a thing for creamy formula lipsticks. My own personal obsession aside, Burberry Kisses are an absolute treat to use as they hydrate the lips while offering a decent colour pay off and are one of the few brands that actually make a decent light pink nude shade (033 Rose Pink - LOVE IT). £25

NARS Stephen Klein Despair palette* - the packaging on this collection was definitely a Marmite one (I absolutely loved it), but I don't think anyone can deny the products themselves are a complete winner. I've got so much use out of this palette over the past couple of months that I wish I'd bought a back up! *shakes fist at limited editions*

Goldfaden MD Fleuressence Face Oil* - this has a somewhat eye-twitching price tag, but oh my god is it good. There's a whole host of different oils packed in to each bottle, pumping the skin full off Omega fatty acids and vitamins A, C and E. It's also non-greasy, so you can use it any time of day. £105

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara - you know a product is good when you refuse to buy any other. If you want big lashes with minimal effort, chuck on a couple of coats of this and you'll never want to go back to your old mascara. It can be a little wet initially, so make sure you wiggle the wand when you apply to avoid any clumps. £19
