Best of Beauty: 2014

Thursday, January 8, 2015

Hey guys! Here are my top 14 Beauty Products of 2014. These are the products I've been using non-stop this year and have left such a huge impression on me. In my opinion they're the absolute best and my favorites! Best of Beauty: 2014

L'Oreal Magic Lumi Primer 
My favorite primer of 2014 and one of my most-used products is this primer from L'Oreal. It's incredibly hydrating and leaves your skin glowing and dewy. It's great for under your foundation and concealer but also works well to blend together with your foundation. It's only $12 and will last you such a long time.

NYC Liquid Liner 
This is one of my favorite liquid liners of all time. It's insanely pigmented and applies evenly and easily. It also stays put all day long, you don't have to touch it up ever. Plus, it's under $3 so it's affordable and the best bargain for your buck!

Tarte Creaseless Concealer 
I've mentioned this a bunch on my blog because I love it so much. I had been searching for a concealer that didn't crease into the fine lines under my eyes for ages and found it in this Tarte product. As the name might suggest, it doesn't crease and also gives incredibly coverage. It fills in the dark circles under your eyes and leaves the area hydrated! (plus it's waterproof!)

Lorac Pro Palette 2
This might be a bit of cheat since I only recently bought this product, but it impressed me so much that I had to put it on my Best of Beauty 2014 list! This palette has such a wonderful range of cool-toned colors that vary from matte to shimmer shades. I honestly don't need anything but this palette to create beautiful eye looks. It's super pigmented and blendable and I love it!

E.L.F. Studio Blush in 'Tickled Pink'
This was my most used blush other than Benefit's 'Rockateur' this year. It's the perfect peachy, soft pink shade that works well for absolutely any makeup look, any skin tone, at any time of the year! And it's super affordable at $3!

Too Faced 'Everything Nice' Palette
This limited edition holiday palette from Too Faced is incredible. If you read my blog, you'll notice I use the products from it in almost every single makeup related blog post. The shadows are so beautiful and pigmented and have made for such amazing makeup looks for me lately. My favorite eyeshadow was 'Mauvelous'. The palette also comes with two blushes, a bronzer, and a highlight shade that I have been obsessed with as well. At $56 it was a huge bargain, especially since all of that would have cost me upwards of $400!

E.L.F. Concealer Brush
I put this on my December Favorites post as well, and it's well-deserving of 'Best of 2014' as well. This brush is affordable, high-quality, and perfect for blending in concealer and setting concealer using powder. I use this brush everyday and I honestly can't live without it now.

L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara
I go through countless mascaras because I'm always searching for my absolute favorite. I still haven't found 'The One' but this mascara from L'Oreal comes pretty close. It's perfect for separating your lashes and making them look long and beautiful. It doesn't smudge and drop those annoying fibers on your under-eye area either. It's a pretty fantastic all around mascara!

Too Faced Highlighter in 'Inner Light'
This highlight shade also comes in the 'Everything Nice' palette I mentioned and has become my #1 highlight shade since I bought the palette a few months ago. I have honestly only used this highlighter for the past two months, exclusively, because it's so good. It's a bit gold toned with just the right amount of shimmer to make your face just a bit more beautiful, really working to highlight the best parts of your face!

Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick in 'Cava' and 'Musk'
I know this is two lipsticks in one, but I had to mention them both. These two lipsticks have been on my lips atleast every other day for all of 2014 because they're the best! They're both berry-toned, but subtle enough to wear everyday. They look great with my skin tone and are so creamy and lovely! 

MAC Lip Liner in 'Whirl'
Another heavily mentioned product on my blog this year; this lip liner is the perfect 'Your Lips But Better' shade. It's a berry/plum shade and I love using this on my lips whenever I want a bit more 'umph' and color on my lips! A definite winner this year!

OPI Nail Polish in 'Big Apple Red'
I adore red nail polish and this has been on my nails more often than any other color this year. I wear it on my toenails everyday and it's that perfect red for your nails. Plus, it's fun to wear this shade because I live in New York and it makes me feel extra festive!

Marc Jacobs 'Daisy' Perfume
This has been my signature scent of 2014. I first got a rollerball of this about a year ago and kept getting rollerballs until finally my mom was kind enough to give me the big bottle as a present. It's feminine, elegant, and fruity and is really perfect for me at this point in my life!

Uniq One Hair Treatment
Again, this was a frequent addition to my blog this year because it's amazing. I love this product because it quite honestly does everything. I can't sing it's praises more than I already have!

There you have it, my Top 14 Beauty Products of 2014! I hope you all enjoyed this and I'm curious to know what your favorites of 2014 were!
