Its back to work for me this week. So I thought I would do something a little different for today’s post. This post is all about my favourite cosmetics from 2014. The products aren’t necessaryily new in 2014, but products I used and enjoyed the most last year.
So lets see what made my favourites.
Winner: Makeup Revolution Ultra Face Base Primer (Review here)
Runner Up: Collection 2000 Primed and Ready
Why?: The Ultra Face Base comes in a bigger tube and that was the only reason they didn’t come in first equal with the Primed and Ready.
Winner: MAC Prolongwear Foundation
Runner Up: Essence All About Matt Foundation
Why?: Because Prolongwear lasts so much longer, especially in summer. All about matt is a good cheap foundation that looks good and lasts a while, but I found that it slid down my face by the end of the day.
Winner: MAC Mineral Skinfinish in Definitely Defined
Runner Up: Australis High Lights in Gold
Why?: The skinfinish is just the perfect colour for me and isn’t too over the top. I love the Australis one, but because it is a liquid one I find I don’t always feel inclined to use it.
Winner: Essence Silky Touch Blush in Life’s a Cherry
Runner Up: Makeup Revolution I heart Makeup I want candy blush in Flushing (Review here)
Why?: The Essence blush is my perfect dolly, flushed blushed. I love wearing it!
Winner: Sleek eyebrow Kit in Dark
Runner Up: MUA eyebrow kit in Dark Brown
Why?:The dark brown gel in the Sleek powder goes perfectly with my eyebrows and looks fab with my blue hair. The MUA kit has the perfect shades for when I have just brown hair 😉
Winner: Essence Stays No Matter What
Runner Up: Benefit They’re Real Push Up Liner
Why?: If the Benefit liner has been easier to use it would have been the winner, but the Essence liner is super easy and really does last no matter what.
Winner: MAC Extended Play Gigablack Mascara (Review here)
Runner Up: Essence Maximum Length Mascara
Why?: The MAC extended play is amazingly water proof, sweat, rain or tears do not make it budge. The essence one makes my eyelashes look fantastic, but it does smudge a bit.
Eye Shadow Palettes:
Winner: Urban Decay Naked 3
Runner Up: Makeup revolution I heart Chocolate
Why?: I wore all of the colours from the Naked 3 Palette multiple times and the colours look great on me and are just a little bit different to what I usually buy. The I heart Chocolate Palette was a suprise as I really just bought it because it looks like a chocolate bar, but some great colours in there :3
Winner: MAC Mystical (Review here)
Runner Up: Lime Crime Utopia (Review here)
Why?: It was so hard to pick just two lipsticks. Mystical won because it is the first nude type lipstick that I have ever fallen in love with. Utopia almost won with how perfect it is :3
I look forward to finding more favourites this year. When I was picking them out I realised there are parts of my collection that could do with growing a bit 😉 I just want to go shopping now XD
