We know we say this every year, but 2015 really was one for the books. We feel beyond lucky to have such wonderful readers, and a job that allows us to produce such fun and interesting content. There really never is a dull moment around the LC.com HQ! So instead of getting all sentimental and nostalgic all by ourselves over here, we decided to round up a few of our favorite blog posts of the year to share with everyone—starting today with beauty. In no particular order, here are our best beauty posts of 2015…
