I thought it was about time I shared with you my 2014 Beauty Faves, but if you know me and my blog, sometimes I like to take a post and make it something that’s my own.
Last year I posted a haul with a difference where I sketched each of the products, which my readers enjoyed, so I thought I’d try it out again in the form of a faves post for 2014! I have big plans for my favourites throughout this year on my YouTube channel so keep your eyes peeled.
Neal & Wolf Indulgence Candle* – £17.95
When Neal & Wolf gave me a chance to review their indulgence candle, I couldn’t wait for the chance. I loved the smell instantly. At £17.95 it’s a little bit steep for your average candle, but having used this candle for a year now and still having half left I think it’s well worth the money. I use this candle everytime I’m trying to relax and it’s definitely my all time favourite candle.
Eucerin Hand Cream – £8.50
Over winter my hands take the brunt of the cold weather and they are left dry and often crack and bleed. This hand cream is a handbag saviour and protects my hands all year long.
Free From Frizz Shampoo & Conditioner – £5.99
A super frizz fighting duo that smooths and softens your hair to shine bright and beautiful. With a gorgeous mango scent that smells like a yummy yoghurt I found it hard not to love these products.
Seventeen Skin Wow Glow Liquid Tan – £5.99
This little bottle of liquid gold, picks up my skin on a full day and leaves me with a golden glow. A fantastic drug store product that works even better than some of its more expensive counter parts, this has become a makeup bag staple that I use nearly every day.
Elf 100pc Eyeshadow Palette – £15.00
A palette to inspire you to be different and the palette that inspired me to post 100 different looks. A bargain at just £15 and colours with deep pigments this palette had to feature on my favourites!
Nars Sheer Glow – £31.00
My boyfriend first bought me sheer glow in Mont Blanc for my birthday last year and as a beauty bloggers favourite I was sure I was onto a winner. The silky coverage is perfect and the shade makes a great match for my pale skin.
Madame Lala Tan Light* – £36.00
A dynamic do all tan that leaves skin smoother, softer and contains anti ageing properties. Slather all over for a light sun kissed glow that will make you look like you’ve just stepped off a plane.
MeMeMe Correct & Perfect Concealer* – £5.99
I suffer badly with dark puffy circles so when I was offered the chance to try this product from makeup brand MeMeMe I couldn’t wait. With a creamy concealer and a powder to seal the whole lot, those dark circles don’t get a look in all day.
Rodial Stem cell superfood facial oil – £60 full size
I purchased this oil in a travel size just to try it out and I have used it every night since I got it. It leaves me with silky smooth skin and although the full bottle price is steep, I can imagine it would last a very long time and be well worth the price tag.
Zoella Bath Fizz – £5.00
Probably the most highly anticipated blogger release of the year, it can only be Zoella’s beauty range. Her treats for the bath and beyond have a lovely scent, but I really fell for her fizz bar. I loved the idea that you could break it into little pieces like a chocolate bar so you don’t have to use it all at once.
L’oreal Collection Exclusive Blake – £6.99
When No7 Discontinued my all time favourite lipstick, I didn’t know which red lipstick to turn to next. When I stumbled upon this collection by L’oreal I found my new perfect red! It now stands proudly on my dressing table and is my go to red whenever I’m feeling extra sassy.
Lush Snow Fairy – limited edition.
Having only discovered Snow Fairy for the first time this December, I know I’m a little late to the party. I love how you can use this product to bath or shower and how it envelopes you in its marshmellow bubbly goodness. It’s pink and sparkly and everything a girly shower gel should be, the only problem is it’s only available for the festive season so you may have to search a little on eBay to hunt a bottle down.
I hope you enjoyed having a sneak peek at all the products I really enjoyed last year!
Until Next Time
(Disclaimer: any items marked with an asterisk were sent to me for the purpose of review, however I included them in this favourites because they were products I truly fell in love with and would buy again with my own money.)
