Hello lovelies :)
Me and Ajda did the best of beauty post at the beginning of 2014 and it is time for the best of beauty in 2014 :) I can not believe how quick the year 2014 went by, I have a feeling that we just started blogging, but it is already a year since we started! I hope we will continuoe on this part, since I really enjoyed writing and talking about all the make up products.
Jordana 12 hr made to last eyeshadow pencil in 04 Continuous Almond: Aldough this is ment to be an eyeshadow pencil I really like to use it on myeyelids as a base for my eyeshadows. It glides on nice and opaque, blends out nicely and sets. When I use this as a base my eyeshadows are going to last for a whole day, no matter the brand.
Catrice All Matt plus shine control make up in 010 Light Beige: I liked this foundation quite a lot at the beginning of the year, but forgot about it in the warmer months. I recently started to use it again, since I am on a quest to finish some products and I fell in love again. It is a perfect shade for me right now, has nice covaridge and stays matt for a long time. Even when it starts to get shiny it looks dewy as oppose to oily.
Catrice velvet finish concealer in 010 Velvet Ivory: I got this concealer at the beginning of October, on the Essence and Catrice event, and I am using it since then every time I do my make up. I already used a third of it! It has a really nice finish, opacity and texture and I especially like to use it around my eyes.
Terra Naturi rouge puder in 04 Royal Apricot: When I do not know what blush to use I always use this one. It coes with everything and gives my skin a really nice healthy glow. It is quite pigmented but it can be also sheered out for just a hint of colour.
Terra Naturi Shimmer Powder body&face in 01 golden highlight: This is a really beautifull golden highlight. It is really finely milled and has nice micro shimmer in it. It does look quite dark in the pan, but it appears light on the shin. It is also really pigmented and it applies and blends like a dream.
Catrice Eye Brow Stylist in 030 Brow-n-eyed Peas & Lash and Brow designer Shaping and Conditioning Gel: I am feauturing two products here because in my mind you can not have one without the other. The brow stylist is a nice colour match for me, it has a bit of a hard texture, but it can be applied really softly because of that. It comes with a nice spoolie. Lash and Brow designer is a really nice gel, it feels quite wet at first, but it holds brows nicely and can also be used as a transparent mascara. It is supposed to be transparent, but it became brownish over time, because it does pick a bit of Brow Stylist when I set brows with it.
MUA Smokin Palette and Ever After - Matte Palette: Almost every eyeshadow palette I own could fit into this category, since I love them all equally, but I choose those two because I think they are the most versitile and are also very good quality.
Catrice Liquid Liner in 010 Dating Joe Black: I recently picked this product and I fell in love with it. It has a felt tip that is thin enough to do a thin line (aldough I like thicker line myself) and it dries into a matte finish which i really love.It stays on my oily lids for the whole day, I only get a bit of smudging on the outer corners. It is really easy to use and opaque.
Catrice Lashes to Kill volume mascara with Lash Extension Fibers: I am not really picky with my mascaras. As long as it does not smudge, flake and does something with my lashes I am satisfyed. I found that this mascara is really easy to build on my lashes and I can achieve quite long lashes with a lot of volume that do not look spidery.
Essence lipliner in 13 Transparent: I got this liner recently and I will soon run out of it, because I used it that much. I do not use it as a liner, but as a base for my lipsticks, especially matte lipsticks. It makes them glide on the lips much nicer.
Wet'n'Wild Sugar Plum Fairy & Catrice 050 Mauve Your Lips: I simply can not choose only one lipstick. Sugar Plum Fairy is just the best plum lipstick I ever found. It needs to be applied with a brush, but once it is on my lips it does not go off. It does transfer but it does not loose much of its intensity and it even survived trough some of the meals. If it does fade it leaves a pinkish plum stain that lasts and lasts untill you wipeit off. Mauve Your Lips is a nude shade I fell in love with and gravitate towards almost every day. It lasts on the lips for a few hours and has the nicest finish. I <3 it :D
NYX Butter Gloss: All the colours! Opaque, not sticky, no taste, nice smell an d awesome colour range. I am not a lipgloss girl but I am soo in love with these.
Real Tehniques Blush brush, Stippling brush and Expert Face brush: All of these brushes are not only good for the money, but are also very versitile. I am using them in my everyday make up and soo far they did not shed or change a bit.
Those are my favourites for the 2014. It was quite hard to narrow it down to be honest :P
What are your favourite products that you discovered and used in the year 2014?
Have a nice day :)
