Erm…better late than never…right?
2014 was a kick ass year for makeup discoveries. 2013 was pretty good too, but this past year was even bettah. Check out some of my beauty favorites from 2014:
Nars Matte Velvet Lip Pencils
Nails Inc. Nail Polish
EssieButton got me started with this polish brand by introducing Porchester Square into my life. I’ve since expanded on this range and LOVE EVERY SINGLE ONE (here and here). It’s just so, so good. Looks like gel polish but a fourth of the price.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder
These powders have magical powers. ‘Nuff said.
Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder
This shiz has changed my life. The slightly grey toned contouring powder is the most pigmented product I’ve ever purchased. WORTH EVERY PENNY. Go get you some.
Kevyn Aucoin Eyeliner
So black, so sleek, so amazing. I’ll dedicate an entire post to it very soon…
Sephora Formula X Nail Polish
I briefly mentioned it on Instagram (and again will write an entire post on this in the near future) but this polish system has changed my nail game. Believe the hype because this stuff is impressive. Bravo, Sephora, bravo.
Real Techniques Brushes
A repeat fave from 2013, these brushes are that good.
NYX HD Concealer
The best concealer for the price. And the shade range is phenomenal too!
Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation
OPI Nail Envy
Make Up For Ever HD Primer
This is the glue that will keep your foundation on all day and all night long.
NYX Lip Pencil in Pale Pink
Being a pale girl, it’s hard for me to find true pale pink lip colors. This lip pencil does the trick. I’ve got three of ’em.
Laura Mercier Artist’s Palette
This was one of my Christmas presents last year and I quickly declared it one of my absolutely favorite eyeshadow palettes. A year later, that still holds true. If I could only have one eyeshadow palette for the rest of my life it would probably be this beautiful baby. Bold words, my friends, bold words.
I didn’t fully understand the magic of this beauty tool until recently. It basically makes your skin look magical fantastical. Trust me: you want this, you need this (oh baby, oh baby).
