Welcome to the third and final installment of my "best of 2014" series! I saved the best for last...my favorite high end makeup products. Let's just get started!
Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation - $37
This has been my favorite foundation since I first discovered it about 6 years ago. It's full coverage, matte and stays put all day long.
Too Faced Melted Fig - $21
The Too Faced Melted liquid lipsticks are amazing. They are super pigmented and last for hours. They come in really vibrant shades but my favorite is Melted Fig. Full review here.
YSL Glossy Stain - $35
I absolutely love these lip stains. They last for hours on me and although they are a stain, they are not drying. I only own 2 but I wish I had more. It surprises me that they are not more popular in the online beauty community. Full review here.
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal - $38
This is my favorite highlighter. It's not too shimmery for day and I think it would be great on most skin tones. I've used it as a browbone highlight, an inner corner highlight, and of course right over my cheekbones. See my full review here.
Nars Blush in Sin - $30
Nars blushes are amongst the best out there. I had already owned the cult favorite Orgasm which I love. I purchased Sin this year and I just adore it! It's a dusty plum/mauve shade and looks really unique. It's super pigmented and looks great on my skin tone. See my full review here.
Lorac Pro Palette 2 - $42
I've never experienced eye shadows like these from Lorac. They are soft and creamy and so pigmented, it's almost too good to be true! I actually like this palette better than the Lorac Mega Pro. See my full review here.
MAC Lipglass - $15
Nothing will ever beat these glosses. Yes, they are grossly sticky but that just means that they last a super long time on the lips. They are the shiniest glosses I've ever owned.
YSL Faux Cils Mascara - $30
This has been my favorite mascara for years. I don't wear it every day because it's so expensive. I've only tried the original formula but I would like to try the Shocking and the Babydoll formulas.
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner - $20
This is the best liquid eye liner I have tried. I do own the Kat Von D liner but haven't really tried it out yet. I'll probably do a comparison post in the near future.
Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette - $49
Although I prefer bold eye shadows to neutrals, this palette is still a favorite of mine. These shadows are such great quality and work so well with each other. Also, they smell like chocolate! See my full review here.
Boxycharm Beauty Subscription - $21/month
Not pictured. This isn't an actual product, it's a monthly subscription service where you receive several beauty products, most of them makeup. I've seen a lot of monthly beauty subscriptions and Boxycharm is by far the best one if you love makeup!
