2014 Make-up Favourites

I definitely wasn't planning on writing this list up but thought it would be nice to look back on next year. Then I can compare and see what I'm still loving and what I don't reach out for as often. I'm not going to go into detail here but thought it would be a nice post for anyone to see what my makeup taste is like currently. I'm thinking of doing a skin care, body care, hair care and nails favourites of 2014 post also as a sort of a part 2.

Favourite primer: Benefit's The POREfessional
Favourite foundation: Rimmel Match Perfection
Favourite concealer: Maybelline Fit Me 
Favourite powder: Soap and Glory, One Heck of a Blot

Favourite eyebrow filler: Anastasia Brow Wiz, Dark Brown
Favourite mascara: Maybelline The Rocket Volum' Express

  1. Sunbasque is so gorgeous. I have it too x

    1. I think it really suits the deeper skin-tones. Thank you for following my blog - I've read yours for quite some time so it was lovely to hear from you x

  2. I love these posts and then looking back as I always find that end of the year I gravitate back to my 'basic favourites' each time :) Lightscapade looks so pretty I'm gutted I missed out on it again! xo

    1. Yeah that's the plan I can't wait to compare to next year! But I know what you mean, when I find good favourites I tend to stick to them. It's a cute one, you should pick it up from MAC xx

  3. I don't know how I would survive without my Tweezerman Tweezers x

    1. It's Tweezerman or nothing in my opinion! x

  4. Who doesn't love real techniques brushes?! :D
    Elephant stories and more

    1. So true, decent and great price! Just checked out your blog :-) xx

  5. The Maybelline Fit Me Concealer is definitely one of the better drugstore concealers. Love how blendable it is. I've tried the Match Perfection Foundation and while I love the finish, I couldn't find a shade match and it broke me out a bit. But really wish it worked for me!

    1. 100% I'm so glad I picked it up, and the shade range is really good. Aw that's a shame, have you tried L'oreal True Match?
