Year 2014 marked the first time I stepped outside my Chanel Rouge Double Intensite (reviewed here) comfort zone and tried out other lipsticks. Some were good, some not so good. It was also the year I moved from brighter eyeshadows to neutrals and began paying attention to skin care. I discovered my Holy Grail concealer, eye primer, serum and face mask. Not all of my 2014 favourites are products that launched in 2014; some of them came out a year or two ago.
Read all about my favourite beauty products for 2014.
Lorac Pro (reviewed here), this palette contains an equal mix of mattes and shimmers, and plum-, olive- and navy-tones. Now that is versatility. And, did I mention insane pigmentation?
LipsticksLorac Pro Matte in Mauve.
Rimmel Provocalips (reviewed here) are the best liquid lipsticks that launched in 2014. I would pick both as finds of 2014, but Bourjois does not need the glossy balm on top, and therefore wins by a whisker. Beautiful formula, and the price will not break the bank. Buy yours here.

MiscellaneousI did not find any new mascara that wowed me more than Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes did, or a foundation I loved better than Shiseido Sheer Mattifying Compact. As for brushes and applicators, nothing I tried in 2014 came close to my favourite Beautyblender. I did find the only lip crayon I love - Pixi Tinted Brilliance Balm in Radiant Rose, reviewed here.
