2014 Makeup Favourites

07 January 2015

Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette-
I may not of had the Vice 3 palette long but it is without a doubt my absolute favourite palette of the year. I love everything from the packaging to the amazing range of twenty brand new shades, i use the matte neautrals on a pretty much daily basis and the gorgeous metallic's if i want to amp up my eye look, just amazing. 

Mac Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle-
I actually got this Mac highlighter for Christmas last year, and it quickly became my favourite highlighter of choice. Its adds an incredibly soft and subtle highlight to the skin and the prettiest glow, its a champagne colour that would suit any skintone. I've bought and tried a few other highlighters throughout the course of the year but always come back to this one, to me nothing else compares. 

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation-
Of course like most i switch up my foundation pretty regularly, my base is something i do like to mix up a bit and use lighter or heavier finishes depending on my requirement at the time, however if i had to choose an ultimate favourtite one that i wear the most and would choose over the others it would be sheer glow. For me nothing else compares in how it gives such great coverage yet still allows your skin to shine through making it look so much more natural and not cakey, love it! 

Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade-
Can we all just take a minute to raise our hands and praise the saviour of my brows? I mean this stuff is just amazing, its completely transformed my brows which in turn has improved the overall look of my makeup and brought it all together. Its the perfect colour match for me, and it sets and makes your brows last all day, the god of brows!

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Luminous Flush-
In the last year i seem to have acquired a massive amount of blushers, cream, mouse, powder the lot, and for someone who never used to wear the stuff its become something i cant live without. However when it comes to choosing a favourite the answer is incredible simple, the Hourglass Luminous Flush blush is my absolute must have blusher, i've never tried another blush quite like it. The colour is just gorgeous and the blurred sheen it gives the skin is just so pretty, really just try it. 

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet-
I have a few of these lip velvets and i love them all, i think if i had to pick a favourite colour it would be Pink Pong a bold barbie pink but its really the formulation that I'm obsessed with. They feel so nice on the lips super light like there's nothing even there, they also last really well much better than other similar products i've tried, very impressed i hope they bring out some more shades this year. 

Nars Laguna Bronzer-
I've used this bronzer everyday since i bought it thats how much i love it, the very first time i used it i was a tad underwhelmed but that quickly changed when i noticed just how natural the colour way and what a healthy colour it gives the skin, i also use this for contouring, its not dramatic but the matte finish makes it look really natural. 

L'oreal L'Extraodinaire Liquid Lipstick-
Last year was big for the release of new breeds of lip products on the highstreet and the liquid lipstick was one of them, I'm a big fan of this L'oreal one i have three of the colours and i couldn't pick a favourite i love them all. The formulation is brilliant soft moisturising and non sticky, they just give such bold colour and a gorgeous high shine, i think i will be picking up some new shades this year. 

Bourjois CC Cream-
Since the beginning of the BB/CC hype i had failed to catch onto the trend finding them pretty pointless, rubbish for coverage and with completely unnatural quite limited shades. That was until i discovered Bourjois's offering and fell in love. This is what i wear on days when I'm working and don't want a full on face of foundation, with better coverage than some light foundations and a great range of shades it just works brilliantly. 

Revlon Colourstay Moisture Lip Stain-
I've had mixed feelings about these lip stains so i was unsure about weather to include them in my favourites, you see i find that they vary in quality depending on the shade i had been disappointed with some of the lighter shades. However due to the fact that i really do love a couple of the darker shades in the range Parisian Passion being my main favourite that i have worn so much i wanted to include them. They look amazing on the lips, the colours and identical to the tube incredibly strong vibrant colours with such a glassy finish. 

Bourjois Volume 1 Second Mascara-
I've never been the biggest mascara fan, thats not to say i don't like it i do and of course i wear it daily i just think we all have our areas of makeup we are more into and for this year its definitely been lip products. Because of this i would tend to go for cheaper highstreet mascara's and after hearing people rave about this one i was s happy i decided to give it a shot. I haven't worn another mascara since it just everything i want a mascara to do lengthens, volumises and has a jet black colour it really is a must try. 

So there you have it the makeup i have been loving using the most through 2014, I'm looking forward to all the new products I'm going to discover this year! What was your favourite makeup product of 2014?
