Five Brands to Watch in 2015

Five Brands to Watch in 2015

I've said it before and I'll say it again, 2015 is going to be one heck of a wonderful year for beauty junkies. Already established brands seem to be stepping up their game and lesser known companies are gearing up to knock our socks off with wonderful new launches and concepts. Below is my pick of five brands to bookmark...

Make Up Forever UK - Not a new brand and one many will be familiar with but at long last it is hitting the UK with Debenhams set to be the official stockist this coming Spring. Words can not express how happy I am, I swear by many Make Up Forever products but hold off featuring them as I know how difficult the brand is to track down in the UK. Well all that is set to change, expect an explosion of Make Up Forever in the UK posts come March be lots of very excited bloggers.

Zoeva - In my opinion a brand often overlooked but one everyone should take notice of! Zoeva brushes are phenomenal, so well made and priced so that they are affordable yet not overly cheap. Most will be aware of Zoeva brushes but please make 2015 the year in which you try the brands make-up, I can not recommend it enough. The lipsticks are creamy, well pigmented and comfortable where as the powder products are soft, beyond colour saturated and a dream to blend. I'll happily say it now 2015 is Zoeva's year.

Grown Alchemist - An organic brand founded by two Australian brothers Keston and Jeremy Mujis, highest-quality. Each item within the line which covers hair, body and skin care has been created using their understanding of cellular renewal and nutrient metabolism for a completely new take on self care. Forgive me for saying that this is an achingly cool brand and one that I have confidence will make its way into many skin care routines in the coming year.

Julie Hewett - You may not be aware of Julie Hewett but she is big news in Hollywood and is a stellar make-up artist within the celebrity world. Cult Beauty have perfectly summed up her make-up line "The idea for her own make up line was born on the set of ‘Pearl Harbour’ when she noticed a distinct lack of true ‘beauty classics’. She was determined not to make up every actress with the same red lipstick, so started swatching different colours to create bespoke shades and textures to reflect the individuality of each woman. Her goal was to translate the durability and wearability of these high-performance, professional products to the consumer, and create a capsule collection of glamourous-yet-wearable make up essentials, to enable every woman to feel good and look gorgeous." There is something rather trustworthy about her approach and it is a make-up line I am keen to read/learn more about.

Spectrum Brushes - In a word of very samey make-up brushes there is Spectrum Brushes, well made and beautifully designed brushes that stand out in a crowd. Think pretty pink handles with almost neon blue bristles. Yes now I have your attention! What is also wonderful is that there is a brush for every product be it cream, liquid or powder all of which are vegan friendly and cruelty free. With the average price of a brush less than £10 you can afford to add a few to your collection and the good news is that they ship worldwide!

Would you add any others to this list?

  6. Yes! 2015 will be a big year for new cosmetics companies! I am a brand ambassador for an upcoming luxury makeup brush line called MOTD Cosmetics- their brushes are vegan, eco friendly, cruelty free and made with taklon fibers so they're perfect for any makeup application. If you want to follow along, their instagram account is @motd_cosmetics ! We launch early in 2015!

  12. I have never heard of Spectrum Brushes but once I got on their site I got sooo excited that I've already placed an order. I can't believe that I have never heard of them and they have such a great price point. I'll report back once I get them and have tried some out.

  13. FAB post, A, and that Zoeva pic is pushing me over the edge to finally order. So. Pretty.

    For me I'm excited to try Charlotte Tilbury's upcoming skincare & clay products. She's hugely passionate about the final results & that's pretty infectious.

    Makeup Revolution have been knocking it out of the park both with their social media presence and their rolling releases of budget but high quality beauty dupes. I see HUGE things for them in 2015.

    Nars have been stellar this year with their introduction of the Audacious lippies and their Dual Intensity shadows, again, big things coming. Big. Expensive. Things.

    For underrated but incredible beauty products though I always go back to NYX, KIKO, Essence & Catrice - consistently amazing releases from all four, if only they could sort out their distribution issues Dognammit!

    Happy new year, ma Cherie, off to drool over Zoeva once more xx

  14. Thanks Sunday Girl.

    As a beauty review blogger myself, I am always interested in learning what brands are up and coming, and if they are worth mentioning.

    The past year for me has been mostly just liking a lot of American makeup brands and I have not really thought about doing my research into brands from other countries.

    One of my favorite brands that I recently discovered from my research has been "Charlotte Tilbury". I am so glad to find a brand that understands the basics of makeup; they do not have wild colors and just stick to the regular earth tones.

    I hope to discover more great brands this year. Your post comes at a good time for me ^_^

  23. I don't know, Zoeva is kind of tricky - they are slowly raising prices which puts me off buying anything from them. I do admit rose gold brushes look fabulous.

  28. LA Bella Figure is one to watch in 2015. They're infamous for their potent and effective skincare liNE and known for using Barbary fig seed oil ( or prickly pear) as a star ingredient. They recently released some makeup with only skin benefiting ingredients and announced they will come out with new makeup and foundation this upcoming year. CANT WAIT

  29. Yay for Zoeva! I have just ordered myself the gorgeous rose gold brush set for my birthday next month! :) Will definitely look into the makeup! Xx
