14 beauty favourites of 2014

This post is going up really late, so sorry for that! I just wasn't happy with the photograph, but now I finally started to like it. Will be also sharing with you my favourite bloggers of 2014 in the next post and then all 2014 favourites would be out of the way, so I will be able to focus on reviews etc. Will do this post in a slightly different form than the other, hopefully it will be easier to read. 

2014 Favourites:
Primer: Laura Mercier Foundation Primer, the best primer I've discovered in 2014! Does make you foundation last longer and it's so smooth on the skin! This is actually a sample size, but you just need a tiny bit, so little goes a long way.
Foundation: This was a difficult one, but MAC Studio Fix Foundation is just a winner! My boyfriend really dislike the smell on this foundation on my face, I don't really mind it. The colour match is perfect, the coverage is medium. Doesn't get inside the pores, not sure why, but some of my foundations just get inside my pores after 2hours of wear.
Concealer: L'Oreal The Eraser Eye Concealer hands down the best concealer! The concealer have such a right amount of coverage, doesn't look cakey under the eye, it's really easy to use.
Powder:  Bourjois Healthy Balance Mattifying Powder my favourite powder of all time! Keeps the skin shine-free, also makes the foundation last a little more longer on the T-Zone. I like the fact that it does have some coverage too.
Brow Product:  Anastasia Beverly Hill Brow Wiz in Ash Blonde another great product of 2014! I must say Anastasia Brow Products are just the bomb! The Brow Wiz is great for lazy day, I am planning to buy a darker colour next time, as this one is too light for my liking.
Eyeshadow Palette:  I was stuck between Urban Decay Naked 1 palette and Urban Decay Naked Basic 1 palette, both palette are my favourite. I like to use Naked Basic during the day and the Naked mostly when I am going out, it's sucks so much that my favourite shades are pretty much used up already! 
Single Eyeshadow: L'Oreal L'Ombre Pure in 502 Lumiere, seen so many postive opinions on these and once I tried this one out last year, I went and bought more shades! They are so smooth and nice in texture, not to mention how great the colour pay off is. Definitely the best drugstore eyeshadows.
Mascara: impossible to pick one so I went for the L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara and Dior Show Mascara, I love the Diorshow Mascara wand so much, as well as the length and volume it's gives my lashes. One issue I been having with it, that it does smudge a little, hopefully there will be a waterproof version soon! The Telescopic is amazing at separating the lashes and giving you lots of length.
Bronzer: Nars Laguna will be forever my favourite bronzer, it's actually the first bronzer I started using! It's not orange, works well for contouring.
Lipstick: Guess picking one lipstick is just too difficult. MAC Lipstick in Candy Yum Yum and Dior Lipstick in 558 Lili, overall I do really like MAC lipstick, this year I haven't really worn lipstick that often, but whenever I went out I picked the Candy Yum Yum. Dior Lili is just great easy to wear lipstick, is just more of a balm than lipstick I would say.
Lipgloss: Collection 2000 Cream Puff in Fairy Cake, not a big fan of lipglosses, but this one is a great one! Gives your lips a nice colour, it is matte, but it's not a dry matte it's more of a creamy/smooth matte.
  1. I love a lot of these products, especially the Naked 1 palette and Laura Mercier's primer. Really nice post :)

  2. Great picks, I am such a fan of the Naked Palettes and I like how the palette is so useable, as you normally find a couple of colours that you can't/won't use but not with these. Candy Yum Yum looks amazing, I really want to try and experiment with brighter shades :)
