My 14 Favourites of 2014♥ || Collab

Now we're in 2015, I can finally sit down and write about my 2014 favourites. When I think about it, I've had a fair few favourites, some which chopped and changed whilst some others did stick around! I've narrowed it down to 14 favourites to show you, all of which are beauty related, yet I've categorised them.


Hair

Throughout 2014, I didn't really try that many hair products. However, one I always reached for (and still do!) is the VO5 High Volume Extra Strong Hold Weather Resistant Hairspray. I have naturally straight-ish hair, so anytime I do anything adventurous with my hair, I trust this to do the job and keep my hair in place! It smells so nice, and thankfully, this is not a sticky hairspray! It also brushes out really easily, bonus!

Facial Skincare


First up, I have to give credit to the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. This is an absolute saviour to me! It was a later discovery in 2014, I believe I purchased this around November, but I use it all the time to remove my makeup. I usually used makeup wipes to remove my makeup, but since I bought this, I can honestly assure you I will never go back to makeup wipes, ever! I'd seen it all over the blogging world, so thought I'd tried it out for myself, money well spent!

My other favourite has got to be the Boots Essentials Fragrance Free Facial Toner. Ever since I got into beauty/skincare, facial toner was one of my favourite things to use! This toner is amazing! It doesn't sting your skin, goes deep into your skin to remove any excess makeup or dirt and leaves your skin clean and soft!

Bath and Body

Of course I have to give a mention to Soap and Glory "Scrub of your life" body scrub! This has got to be one of the best body scrubs out there, no joke! It makes your skin unbelievably smooth. Oh, and did I mention how gorgeous it smells?!

Another Soap and Glory products, oops... This is the Soap and Glory "Heel Genius" foot cream. This doesn't smell like your typical Soap and Glory product, but I like the smell, yet others don't! I know a lot of people don't like feet so I'm going to keep this one short by saying it does make your feet soft!


Last up, a very famous product here in the Bloglovin world, Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel. I got this in November not long after the Christmas collection came out. If you haven't smelt or tried this, you need to get this next Christmas, as sadly it's limited edition! I think it smells like strawberry laces/bubblegum, which might be too sweet for some, though I love it!

Perfume

Obviously I'm going to include perfume, wait.. make that perfumes! I've been loving Emporio Armani "Diamonds Rose". It's such a unique scent, I really don't know how to describe this other than beautiful!

I bought this half way round the year, as it's limited edition throughout the Summer time. It's CK One Summer. Oh my! This smells so good! It'd describe it to be rather fruity. As you can see, I've used quite a bit, therefore, shows I am a fan!

My last perfume favourite has to be Soap and Glory "Original Pink" Eau De Parfum. Wow, wow, wow! The amount of complements I've received when wearing this just goes to show how nice it is! Even the bottle is gorgeous!

Make-up

I think in 2014, I found my holy grail concealer! It's the Maybelline Fit Me! Concealer. This is the best concealer I've ever tried! A small bit goes a long way, and blends out easily. I know for sure I'll be using this all 2015 too!

I'm going to be brutally honest, but when I saw this at first, I was on two minds whether or not to buy this as I didn't wear eyeshadow, and I'm now so glad I did! This is the W7 "In The Buff" palette. It's been my most worn eyeshadow palette, and it's my go-to for a simple and natural eye look. For the price, which I believe it retails between £5-£10, varying where you buy it, it's definitely worth the investment to getting as the colour are gorgeous and the pigmentation is amazing!

Mascara has got to be included, because, it's mascara..duhh! The Maybelline "Big Eyes"  mascara has been a massive favourite of mine all year! Many people dislike it, although I don't know why. I like to apply the upper lash mascara wand on my upper lashes (obviously) and combine it with the lower lashes mascara wand as I like the look it gives. The upper wand gives volume, with the lower wand giving length and separation.

For those days where I want a lip colour, but not too bright, I've used the Revlon Lip Butter in "Lollipop". It's a pretty pinky-berry colour. I have reached for it lots in 2014. Not only does it give colour, but it also is moisturising!


Finally, we have The Body Shop Lip Butter in Chocomania. This has helped so much with my dry, chapped lips in 2014. It doesn't smell like chocolate though! It's a lip butter so is a little on the greasy side. Still, it's fab!

Those are my 14 favourites of 2014. This is also a collab with Camille so make sure to go check out her post!
