Hey Lovelies, hope your all alright, today I thought instead of doing a December favourites and I didn't have too many favourites this month, I would do my beauty favourites of 2014.
First up is eyeshadow's I wanted the Naked 3 but it's quite expensive and instead I opted for the Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 palette which is so reasonable at £4 and is such a good dupe. The eyeshadow's are very pigmented and long lasting and have such a nice texture to them and you can create both daytime and nighttime looks either natural or smokey look and they have both matte and shimmery/metallic shades. If you love pinky purple shades you will love this palette. Then I have MAC Woodwinked this has been a favourite for quite some time it's a gorgeous golden brown shade that I have worn all year round, it's pigmented and lasts for quite some time, it's a nice all over the lid shade if you want minimal with just one shade to give you a wash of colour and you can wear it in the crease.
The Maybelline Falsies has been a favourite of mine for ages but I always end up repurchasing this mascara as it's been the best I've ever tried, it lengthens and volumises my eyelashes but doesn't make them clumpy. This year was the first time I've ever tried Illamasqua products and their Precision Ink in Abyss has been the best liquid eyeliner I've ever tried, it's really black and you can create thin or thick lines and is really long lasting.
This year I tried the Bourjois Healthy Mix, I'm not one to jump on the hype straight away but I'm so glad I bought the Healthy Mix, it's become my new favourite drugstore foundation, it's light to medium coverage and gives such a nice feel to the skin and it lasts quite well and matches my skin, I often don't find a good match foundation. The Seventeen Phwoarr Paint came out this year and this and the Collection concealer are two of my favourite concealers, it covers under eye circles really well, isn't cakey and lasts really well. It's also really cheap.
The MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter has been a favourite of mine for a couple years it's my favourite highlight I own and I've mentioned it quite a few times before, it's a pinky toned shimmery highlight, it can be a little chalky but it is really cheap. Makeup Revolution Blush in Sugar is a gorgeous pink shade, it's really pigmented and long lasting and only £1 you really can't go wrong with it. Sleek Contour Kit in Light is my go to palette for contouring I always use this to contour with, the contour isn't too dark for my skin and is matte, the highlight is really nice too. Sleek Blush in Suede is a nice natural everyday sort of shade that is matte and is really pigmented and lasts really well on the cheeks.
Lastly lip products, the Revlon Colorburst's Matte Balms came out this year and they became a firm favourite of mine, I chose the shade Elusive this is a gorgeous everyday sort of shade it's your lips but better and even though they are matte they aren't drying at all, they are really pigmented and long lasting. Loreal Collection Privee Cheryl Nude came out this year and it was a favourite of mine straight away, it's a pretty pinky nude that is a nice everyday shade and if you want to wear minimal makeup, it's really creamy, pigmented and lasts quite well. MAC Russian Red is my all time favourite red, if I want to wear a red I usually go for this one, this red really suits me and even though it is matte it doesn't dry my lips and is super pigmented and really long lasting. The Revlon lipgloss in Peony is a gorgeous pink with golden shimmer, I've always been a lipgloss person and this year I got back into wearing lipgloss, this lipgloss isn't sticky at all which I always like in a lipgloss, it is pigmented and lasts as long as any other lipgloss.
What has been your beauty favourites of 2014?
