My 2014 Make-up favourites ♡

Happy new year everyone! I hope everybody had a fabulous 2014 and a even better 2015. This post is going to be all my make-up products that I have loved, used and became my all time favourites in 2014. I was also going to put skincare into this post, but when I was thinking about it I am too much of a skincare junkie to mix it all in 1 post so what I might do is do a My 2014 skincare favourites post soon. I hope you enjoy reading...

Benefit Porefessional-
This is a primer I used in 2014 and has become my top favourite. This minimises the appearance of pores and fine lines and it makes my make-up stay put for a good couple of hours. It also gives my skin and make-up a " flawless face" affect. It's lightweight, super silky and makes my skin feel smooth and keeps my make-up in place all day without creasing or caking.

L'Oreal True match foundation -
This foundation is perfect for anybody who has oily skin because it has a matte finish and helps your skin stay matte. Anybody with any skin type will love this foundation but if you are oily, it will be a good foundation for you. I love the way it sits on my skin, how lightweight it feels but has amazing coverage, how natural it looks, and the long lasting wear of this foundation is fabulous. I can go hours without touch ups. It blends like a dream and colour matches to my skin perfectly.

L'Oreal True Match Lumi Foundation -
This is such a gorgeous foundation to have, I recommend this 100%. If you want a flawless skin that is glowly and dewy this foundation is for you. It makes your skin look healthy and glowing and still looks natural and lightweight with great coverage.  I can wear this foundation for a whole day and night and it stays on without caking or coming away. If you are oily then I would suggest setting it with a powder, but you are still going to love this foundation.

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer -
This is my most used and loved concealer. It's so blendable, great converge and no movement/ creasing for a few hours. It hides the  lines, redness, dark circles and also has a soft, lightweight consistency.

Benefit Hoola Bronzer -
This is a matte bronzer, very beautiful for contouring and has become my all time favourite. It's a universal bronzer that everybody should own. It's not to light or dark it's just perfect. It's very creamy and easy to blend out. 

Too Faced Blush ' Mocha '
Even though it's called a blush I use this as a bronzer because the shade is perfect for contouring. If I am not feeling a matte bronzer I will use this because it has little shimmers in it. It's the perfect bronze shade not to orange or muddy. Very blendable, pigmented and the shimmer is not intense. 

Sleek Blush ' Mirrored Pink ' -
In 2014 I had my go-to blush and it's always from sleek. Sleek is my all time favourite for blushes. The pigmentation is amazing, the colours are beautiful, the shimmer and softness are so pretty. The shade I have been wearing all the time is Mirrored Pink.  It's the perfect pink with gold shimmer running through it.

Sleek Blush ' Pomegranate' -
This is another Sleek Blush that I have been loving in 2014. This is a berry pink shade with a slight blue undertone and a little bit of shimmer. It's a warm shade for the cheeks.

Mac ' Dame' Blush -
This is also a go to blush I used in 2014. It's a beautiful baby pink shade that is matte. It goes on smooth and is very pigmented. Very pretty on the cheeks.

Revolution Blush ' Hot ' -
I tried out the brand Revolution in Superdrug in 2014 and I really love this Blush from that brand. It's only £1 and you get a pigmented, blendable blush. This shade is a hot pink with a little bit of shimmer.

The Balm Marylou, CindyLou and Bettylou manizers-
These ladies stole the show in 2014 for me. Betty, Cindy and Mary are gorgeous highlighters, shadows and blushes in one. They are so pigmented and each one is so beautiful on the skin. MaryLou is a vanilla shade with golden shimmer, Cindylou is a champagne shade with a pink undertone and Betty is a bronze golden shade. These ladies are crazy pigmented so use a light hand and they are soft on the skin. Very beautiful highlighters and I love them and wore them all throughout 2014.

L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara ( The gold Packaging )
This is the only mascara I used most of the time and stood out for me in 2014. It is my holy grail mascara that has never disappointed me. It has a thin brush that grabs every lash and gives them volume and length.  It gives the perfect lift and tint without clumping and it does not flake off during the day.

Beauty UK eye primer-
For a drugstore eye primer this does the job well. This keeps my eyeshadow from creasing and my shadows do not move till I am ready to take it off that night. When I apply it to my lids it has this tight sticking feeling as if it's saying your shadows are not going anywhere. Really love this primer, does an excellent job!

Urban Decay Naked Palette.
This palette I cannot live without. I use this all the time and love it so much. The shades are so pretty, shimmer and matte and so pigmented. I also received the Naked 2 palette for Christmas and I have to say I'm loving it a tiny bit more than Naked1. Both palettes are beautiful, pigmented, shades are pretty and you have shades that go well together. These palettes have browns, to golds, whites to blacks honestly I could go on about the Naked 1+2 palettes. Amazing!

The Balm Nude Tude Palette-
This palette is so pretty and the shades are so pretty. It has all the nude and warm shades. Matte and shimmer and crazy pigmentation. Very beautiful and can create a lot of looks with this palette.

Revolution Welcome to Pleasuredome Palette-
This has 18 eye shadows, 12 shimmer and 6 matte so you have a good range of matte and shimmer in this palette. It also has bright and neutral shades so you can really create any look with this palette. It's also very pigmented and creamy and easy to blend.

Maybelline Colour Tattoos -
These are little gems to have in your collection. They are gel, creamy eye shadows that feel so smooth on the lid. They are so incredibly pigmented and last till your ready to take your make-up off. They come in beautiful shades and can be used as a base or on top of an eye shadow. They make any make-up look stand out.

Carmex Moisturising Lip Balm.
2014 was the year I tried Carmex for the 1st time and I love it and has become my all time favourtie lip balm. This has healed and helped my chapped and dry lips. Soothed away cracks, chapping and dryness. So moisturising and has a menthol, minty feel.

Revlon matte lipstick ' Sultry Samba '
I have been wearing this matte lipstick so much in 2014. It's such a pretty hot pink with slight purple undertones. The matte finish is moisturising and creamy and not at all drying. The colour lasts really well without fading or bleeding.

Maybelline Baby Lips
I have accumulated so many of these in 2014. I have quite a collection. These are so moisturising with a beautiful tint on the lips. They are very hydrating and some of them have scents like cherries or mint.

Revlon Matte Balm ' Shameless '
I have been loving the plums/purple lips in 2014. This ' Shameless' shade is a berry, pinky, purple. The matte finish is creamy and velvety. So pretty and pigmented and lasts a good few hours. It also has a minty scent and feel on the lips.

Maybelline colour sensational lipstick ' hot plum'
This is another purple, plum shade. It's a little bit lighter than the Revlon Shameless. It has a glossy, creamy finish and looks beautiful on the lips. I have to say it does not last as long as the Revlon one but still lasts a good couple of hours and very pigmented.

 Clarins Lip Balm Crayons.
These lip balm crayons are so moisturising and creamy and pigmented. They have a sweet, cake scent and beautiful shades. They have a glossy, creamy, finish and feel so hydrating and smooth on the lips. In 2014 I enjoyed wearing these.

I think that is all the make-up products I loved during 2014. I hope you enjoyed reading. xx

  1. abHair isn’t difficult if you have the right pieces for your colouring and hair length. Practice makes perfect with hair extensions. Perhaps you want to grow your hair, but you hate the in-between stage. If so, hair extensions can be the perfect solution, but they do require regular maintenance and as much care as you give your own hair.
