2014 Favourites: Beauty, Hair, Skincare and More!

2014 was such a whirlwind, but in the best way possible. Throughout that whirlwind, I tried many new products (or at least new to me). Some of them were fantastic and I talked about them a lot here on this blog. But of course, I have to talk about all the products I've loved this year. 

Revlon ColorStay Foundation I know this has been talked about on every beauty blog and YouTube channel ever, but it was a new discovery for me. It's what I wear to any event, on a really bad skin day or even just on a long day where I want everything to stay in place all day. It's natural and not cakey, but still gives full coverage. It's fantastic.

Maybelline FitMe Concealer This stuff is perfect for when you have lots of blemishes. It covers so well.

Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer This is definitely not full coverage and more light and natural, but still covers blemishes and dark circles with ease and brightens everything up.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeliner This is my new favourite eyeliner. It's creamy and just glides on. It's such a lovely drugstore buy.

Maybelline The Nudes Palette This is a fairly new favourite as I bought it just in November and I haven't talked about it on this blog yet. I know it's been a very contradictory palette- some love it, some hate it. I have loved it. Yes, it does not have great pigmentation and does crease after about five hours of wear, but overall is such a great natural palette. I think that Maybelline purposefully went for light pigmentation to make it more natural, which I love. All the colours are easy to wear for everyday, but you can build them up for a more formal event.

NYC IndividualEyes for Brown Eyes in #946 Best of Broadway While the shadows in this are lovely I loved the eye primer to use not only as a base for eyeshadows but to even out my eyelids and cancel out darkness either on my eyelids or under my eyes.

Covergirl Flamed Out Shadow Stick in Ginger Flame This is perfect to brighten up your inner corner or your waterline, but is also lovely worn all over the lid as a light pinky-champagne shimmery colour.

Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me First of all, this tastes like cherry popsicles. Plus this is the most moisturizing lip balm and the perfect colour for my skintone.

EOS Lip Balms I finally realized all the hype around these. They really are fabulous and moisturizing and taste good and all that good stuff.

St. Ives Blemish Control Green Tea Cleanser This is a continuing favourite from last year. It cleans your skin without stripping it and lathers up so beautifully. It's exactly what my skin wants at the end of a long day.

Olay Fresh Effects SPF 15 Moisturizer I have been using Clean and Clear Morning Burst Moisturizer with Spf 15 for years and love it dearly but have not been able to find it recently. So I had to find another moisturizer and this was the only one I could find at the drugstore that was just a simple moisturizer with spf and I have been loving it just as much. And smells better.

Lush was a bit of a discovery this year. I had always known about it and bought some of their soaps but never got the hype about spending $10 on a bath bomb (a bit of an exaggeration). But now I totally get the hype. Their bath stuff is luxurious. Anything I've tried I've loved.

Body Shop Body Butters These have been my go to hand lotions this year. Currently I have the strawberry one, but I have also used the cranberry joy one from last year's Christmas collection.

Garnier Sleek and Shine Line I have loved this line ever since I started using hair products, but honestly they have everything my hair wants: straightening and blow dry creams and mists, hairsprays, leave-in conditioners, argan oil (pictured) and it's fantastic.

What products have you been loving in 2014? Let me know in the comments below! Happy New Year and I wish you all the best in 2015! Cheers!


  1. I don't know how I feel about The Nudes palette and this is probably the only positive review (that I trust) that I read, but at the same time I have enough nude shadows for two lifetimes...
