Best 14 of 2014

Well hello,

I know I´m kinda late on this one, but I cannot start a new year of blogging without letting go of the old one. And what better way to do that than to round up all the best products I have been enjoying throughout the year. This year I decided to do this post a bit different, I am going to show you my favourite 14 beauty products of 2014. Some of these products I´ve had for a longer time, but if it ain´t broke don´t fix it, right?

First, let´s talk about the foundation. I can´t believe that Catrice Cosmetics Nude Illusion became to be my favourite. I use it every day, without a doubt because I love the natural finish that it gives. Now, the reason I am so surprised is that when I tried it for the first time I absolutely hated it. But I tried a different way of applying it and never looked back. I used my Blending Sponge, again from Catrice and it changed the game for me. It blends and smooths the foundation beautifully.

I want to mention not one, but two concealers: one for the under eye circles -  Maybelline´s Instant Anti-Age Effect The Eraser Eye concealer and my all time favourite blemish concealer: Bourjois Healthy mix concealer.

Next up we need to mention a powder. I have absolutely been loving the MineralSkinfinish Natural from MAC. It sets my foundation but leaves a healthy looking glow. Can you tell already I am on a natural looking make-up kick? Speaking of MAC I also really enjoyed using a Sheertone blush in a shade Peaches. It´s a matte orange/coral. It warms up my skin tone and makes me look more awake and younger. I top my blush with my fave highlighter ever, CatriceCosmetics Prime and Fine Highlighter. It´s soooo pretty.

Now, let´s talk eye products. I loved using MAC Paint pot in Soft Ochre. It makes the eyeshadow pop and last all night long. My eyeshadow fave hasn´t changed from last year. My Naked 2 palette from Urban Decay is still the Bomb. My most used shadows are Tease and Bootycall. Next, eyeliner. On a daily basis I usually use eye pencils but when I want my eyes to stand out I use Catrice Cosmetics Gel Eyeliner. It is the blackest, most intense and best quality eyeliner I have ever tried. Last thing is the Eyebrow lifter from Catrice.

And last category are lip products, possibly my favourite. My fave lip liner is Deborah Milano 24 ORE. I had a bit more trouble choosing the best of the best lipsticks, but I think MACs Mehr must be my most used. At least towards the end of the year. And I almost forgot the nail polish. Hands down OPI Gouda Gouda two shoes. Even the name is too cute.

And there you have it. My best of the best beauty products of the 2014. I hope 2015 is also filled with awesome  new products. Before I leave you, I want to know what products you are excited to try in 2015.
