Top 100 Beauty Products of 2014

Top 100 Beauty Products of 2014

Thanks for the fun, 2014! Here is a wrap-up in case you missed any of the top 10 lists this year, which doubles as my top 100 beauty products that I tried during the past year. This has been the most productive year on record for me, personally, in regards to reviewing products. I was a lot better...

Lipsticks | 2014 Editor’s Favorites

Lipsticks | 2014 Editor’s Favorites

A lot of new favorite formulas were launched this year, like Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy and NARS Audacious, which certainly made it extra challenging to narrow down favorites to a list of ten. As much as I love coral lipsticks, I found several non-coral colors that made my heart sing, too :)

Lipglosses | 2014 Editor’s Favorites

I tend to like my lipgloss to be rather pigmented, and for the rare occasions I fall in love with a gloss that isn't pigmented, it's usually ridiculously sparkly. This list definitely reflects those preferences! :) I hope to hear from you about your personal faves!

Eyeshadows | 2014 Editor’s Favorites

It was tough, but here's my list of favorites for individual eyeshadows (which means they aren't only available in duos, quads, or palette -- see Best Makeup Palettes of 2014 for those!). As you might expect, it was hard to narrow it down, and I'm a fan of variety and spreading the love around, so...

Highlighters for Cheeks & Face | 2014 Editor’s Favorites

Oh, boy, there were some beautiful highlighters released this year (I reviewed a little over 50). Of all products, highlighters seem to be a weakness for me. They're often products that I stow away in my basics drawer, which is really the most coveted of all drawers (for my makeup stash, that is),...

Blushes | 2014 Editor’s Favorites

Bringing down my favorites to a mere ten--TEN!!--from over 200 blushes that I've reviewed this year was painful. There were so many amazing formulas and shades released this past year! To that end, I wanted to make sure to share the love (and not just choose ten from the same formula!), but I urge...

Nail Polishes | 2014 Editor’s Favorites

Nail Polishes | 2014 Editor’s Favorites

I think there's a trend in my favorites this year: shimmer, dusty/faded/muted shades, and anything but classic red creams. I found myself loving quite a bit of Formula X and Zoya this year, and NARS' revamped formula had some nice shade offerings. I'm glad MAC reformulated their polish with a new...

Budget-Friendly Blushes | 2014 Editor’s Favorites

It really shouldn't be a surprise to see so many of Makeup Geek's blushes on this list, because from the first one I tried to the last, they were stellar. They really nailed the formula; it's not just good for the money, but it's a fantastic powder blush, period. The texture was soft without being...

Budget-Friendly Eyeshadows & Eyeliners | 2014 Editor’s Favorites

I feel like this was the year of the eyeliner when it came to choosing my favorite budget-friendly eye products. It was hard not to make a list just for eyeliners, because there were so many amazing shades to choose from!

Budget-Friendly Lipsticks & Lipglosses | 2014 Editor’s Favorites

There's little sweeter in beauty than when a product performs exceptionally well and comes with a wallet-friendly price tag! These lip products prove you don't need to spend a lot to get bold, bright, or unique colors. I love seeing brands put out better and better budget-friendly alternatives so...
