2014 Beauty Favorites

Hey guys,

I can’t believe this year is over! I’m sure you’re all tired of hearing that, but it really does blow my mind. I’ve used so many amazing products this year, and I decided I should narrow it down to 10 all time favs. These are products that I absolutely can’t live without and I feel could not be replaced by another brand/product.

Urban Decay Naked Palette – I’m sure you’re all tired of seeing this posted on my blog and a million other blogs, but it really is one of the best neutral palettes. All of the colors have amazing color payoff and blend like a dream. My favorite look with this is a smokey eye.

GLAMGLOW Thirstymud Mask – This product really saved me when I went to PA for three weeks during Christmas break. My skin was actually dying and crazy dry, so I stuck this baby on and it was a miracle. I still use this about every week or two in Florida because my skin is always really dry anyway and it just makes your skin feel amazing and hydrated.

Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black & White – I’ve never been so obsessed with a perfume before, and i’ve also never thought about combining two scents. These go together perfectly. The black is sweet and the white is floral, and they are amazing separately as well. The idea of a rollerball is also genus, and I’ll probably only be buying them from now on. They are great for travel/throwing in your purse, and they are so much cheaper.

Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl – Gawd this really is the prefect red for everyone, and the pencil makes it so much easier to apply. This has great staying power and is really pigmented as well.

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Anarchy – Lippies really are my absolute fav so of course I had to put two different ones in this post. This is just an amazingly fun bright color. I wore it out on NYE so check out my NYE Glam post if you want to see it on. It looks more red in this pic but it’s actually a bright fuchsia. This was my first Urban Decay lipstick, and I should have known it would be amazing just like all of their other products. I will definitely be picking up more in the future. It feels amazingly hydrating on the lips and has great color pay off.

Formula X Nail Polish in Gemini – This was another product that appeared in my last post (NYE Glam). The Formula X line is amazing and stays on forever without chipping. I used to always go to the salon to get gels, but this is so much more convenient and a heck of a lot easier to get off.

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla – This is the best concealer I’ve tried for under eye circles. It covers beautifully and doesn’t crease. I do set mine with powder because I live in Florida where it’s crazy humid and hot, but it’s so much better than anything else

Sephora Pro Blending Brush #27 – This brush is my baby, and I have three of them and want fifty more. It’s a bit fluffy in this pic because I gave it a bath earlier today. I use this mostly for blending shadows, but I’ve also loved it for my blending in my concealer and for bronzer when i’m contouring.

Beautyblender Blender Cleanser Solid – This brush cleaner is so quick and easy. You definitely have to still deep clean your brushes, but this is perfect for a quick wash and it’s really convenient for when you’re traveling.

Anastasia Brow Wiz in Dark Brown – I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT THIS! If you don’t have this you should go out and get it right now. It makes doing your brows sooo easy, and I think it gives a really natural look. I’m considering changing over to soft brown to make it even more natural, but I do like this color as well.

One thought on “2014 Beauty Favorites

  1. Ooh so many of these are things I’ve been wanting to try! The Nars lip pencils are a prime contender for my next splurge purchase. I one hundred percent agree about the Anastasia Brow Wiz though! That thing is an everyday staple for me.
