My 14 Beauty Favourites from 2014


I always love these types of posts as I find it so difficult to narrow all the products you have used throughout the year to a handful of favourites. Therefore you know the chosen ones must be good! So from top left to bottom right here are mine:

1. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser (full review) This cleanser has definitely helped sort out my skin and at £8.99 it is such a bargain. You can find it in the Pharmacy section of Boots. 

2. Super Facialist Una Brennan Vitamin C Glow Boost Serum (full review) I don't know how I lived without this product. It is amazing for adding much needed hydration and radiance to my complexion. 

3. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum II (full review) This is definitely worth the price tag as I feel it does exactly what it sets out to do. 

4. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair II (full review) This is a product I have repurchased again and again and can always tell when I have used it. 

5. Soap and Glory Solar Powder (full review) This deserves all the hype it gets. Two perfect bronze shades in one package, with a decent sized mirror and very affordable. 

6. Revlon Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie (full review) I don't think I have reached for a lip product more than this. It is the perfect pinky lips that is so hydrating and can be applied without a mirror - winner!

7. Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage (full review) This is a holy grail for me as it covers anything and can be mixed with more liquid concealers to give them more oomph. It also lasts years so is well worth the investment.

8. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Luminous Flush (full review) I don't think any other colour has graced my cheeks this year. The ultimate all rounder colour that gives a soft highlight as well. Also the packaging is beyond dreamy! 

9. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light (full review) Another product I have used every day as it calms down shine without losing any radiance and helps my makeup last so much longer. Also I have hardly made a dent over the year so well worth the investment! 

10. Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers It was very close between these and my Japonesque Power Curlers (review here). I have very straight stubborn eyelashes and curlers are a must. These two have the longest lasting impact and I could not live without them! 

11. Urban Decay Naked Cannot believe I haven't dedicated a whole post to this palette before as I love it so much. Half Baked is definitely my favourite but you can get so many different looks with one set of eyeshadows and the quality is amazing. 

12. Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat Again considering I have repurchased bottle and bottles of the stuff I cannot believe it doesn't have its own post! I am someone who smudges their nail polish within seconds of applying, not matter how careful I try to be. This however, is amazing as it dries so fast and leaves the most  beautiful glossy shine. 

13. Soap and Glory Archery in Hot Chocolate (full review) The best dupe of the Anastasia Brow Wiz and leaves my brows looking natural but much more defined. I have used this everyday and can see me repurchasing for years to come. 

14. Topshop Glow in Polished (full review) I love a highlight but I also love it to be natural and this little pot ticks all the boxes.
