Every year, swarms of new beauty products hit the market, ranging from cheap drugstore buys to high-end brands. How can you possibly know which ones to try? Fret not - here’s a list of the 10 must-have makeup, hair, and nail products that will rock your world in 2015.
1. Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Creme
Marc Jacobs is no longer just a fashion darling - he’s also killing it in the beauty world. His new line of lipsticks, Le Marc Lip Creme, are a tad pricey at $30 each, but there are so many reasons to try them out! First, they’re super long-lasting with up to 10 hours of wear. Second, they come in 12 gorgeous colors (ranging from peachy Georgie Girl to glamorous red Dashing). Also, they’re really hydrating since they’re made with natural peptides and humectants (including meranti and cocoa butter) and full of antioxidants from seaberry ingredients. They’re available now at MarcJacobs.com and will be sold at Sephora starting in February.
2. Maybelline Primers
Maybelline just released a new line of primers called Master Prime Weightless Blurring Primers. They’re already making waves in the beauty industry because of their diverse 3 formulas: Blur + Smooth, Blur + Redness Control, and Blur + Illuminate. The best part (besides the $9.99 price tag at drugstores and Ulta) is the great finish they provide. The primers have a thin consistency, and they go on super easy, leaving you with a powdery finish. The 3 options let you tackle whichever skin issues you have, and help to create smoother skin when you apply it after your foundation. These are sure to fly off the shelves once word of mouth kicks in!
3. Malin + Goetz Mojito Lip Balm
Not all chapsticks are created equal. Some leave your lips dry even within just an hour of using them. Others have no scent or a medicinal smell. If you’re sick of using a boring lip balm, check out the Malin + Goetz Mojito Lip Balm. Although it’s only available on their homepage, this brand is starting to get a lot of praise for their naturally-made products. This lip balm, for just $12, not only hydrates your lips, it also prevents future dryness or irritation. (Side note: I recently received this in my Ipsy subscription and am obsessed with how soft it makes my lips!)
4. Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara
Usually, your mascara only does one or two things. Well, the Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara does 4! This $20 product, available at Sephora, lengthens, curls, volumizes, and conditions your lashes. It even claims to increase your lash volume by 330%!

5. Benefit Puff Off
Anyone who’s ever pulled an all-nighter or partied a little too hard the night before understands the need for a good eye treatment product. Benefit has come up with an effective option for dealing with those under-eye bags and puffiness! Their Puff Off! is an eye gel that smoothes out lines, so that you look much more well-rested. It’s $29, but the cost is well worth it when you see how well it works. In a survey, over 94% of women said their eyes looked smoother within just 7 days!
