My High End Favourites | 2014

I am just going to say what everyone else is thinking right now and that is holy moly where has 2014 gone?! I honestly believe time flies over the more you grow up. Gathering all the makeup items I have loved over 2014 is definitely a favourite post to write about. I honestly think I could of included a heck of a lot more in this post but then I decided to pick the products that I tend to use more often which are these! I have created two posts one high end and one drugstore so keep your eyes pealed for that one!

NARS Blush In Orgasm
This has been my everyday blush since the moment I first layed eyes on it! Of course I switch products up here and there but no blusher ever competes with this one. I just love everything about it from the shade to the consistency everything is lovely! It blends in so nicely and if you put too much on your cheeks accidentally this is the easiest product ever for blending out! Nobody wants to look like a clown and this blusher definitely prevents that. The colour itself is on the more darker toned of pinks but like I said it blends in nicely and doesn't look as dark on the cheeks as it does in the package. It is buildable and long lasting which is always a winner! I think I will be continuing to use this next year too as I cannot fault it!

Too Faced Shadow Insurance Eye Primer

I have went on and on about this eye primer a lot this year so it seemed quite obvious that this would become a 2014 favourite. This is the best eye primer I have used by far for long lasting eyeshadows, I have tried the Urban Decay primer potion and I'll admit it is a good product but to me it felt like the consistency was a lot more thicker which was sometimes difficult for applying. This primer blends in so nice and quick then keeps your eyeshadow lasting all day long without the pigmentation fading, I absolutely love this highly recommend this! - also found my eyeshadow lasts longer with this than UD.

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

I think this eyeshadow palette has become a lot of bloggers favourites this year as it has been hyped about so so much! This is definitely one of my favourites purely because all the shades are my cup of tea, I am not one for dramatic colourful shades or anything too drastically dark. I am pretty simple and love my pinky, nude tones so this was perfect for me. The pigmentation of these is brilliant I definitely think you get good value of money here. I definitely recommend everyone to try one of the Naked palettes because they are perfect for both day and night plus, they have amazing colours for every outfit! Definitely a one to add on your wishlists. 

YSL Lipstick in Volupte Shine No.8

This is a lipstick I definitely don't regret paying the price for these are completely worth the price. I am obsessed with this lipstick, yes obsessed. I asked for a shade that was suitable for everyday wear that added a bit of 'your lips but better' and this is that product. This has touches of pink, nude and a tiny bit of purple so the colour is incredible! It is very moisturizing which I absolutely love because even a good few hours later my lips are still moisturized. The packaging is gorgeous definitely a product that ticks all the boxes for me! I must add some more of these to my collection next year.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation

I can't really fault this product - if you are more on the dry skin side I wouldn't recommend this as the foundation picks up those areas quite noticeably. It has amazing coverage which is buildable that is always amazing, you only need a tiny amount of this too! It is very long lasting and looks nice and healthy throughout the day. Perfect foundation I have not came across any others that can compete. If you are looking for something with high coverage that is long lasting then definitely give this foundation a try, I would be lost without this totally wakes my face up!

Charlotte Tilbury Eyeshadow Palette In Dolce Vita

This is a latest favourite of mine and if am honest I am mostly loving this product for the packaging. I have used this a few times it did take awhile for me to properly use this because I didn't want to ruin how pretty it looked (lame I know!) but I finally did try this out. I love the consistency of this palette! It is a bit different to the likes of Naked 3 the texture is a lot more matted than shimmer for starters. I absolutely love this palette the consistency is incredible and so so easy to blend out! I can see this becoming a staple in my makeup routine soon!

    1. It is really good for coverage and long lasting but I wouldn't recommend it if you get dry skin at all as it is quite a pain for covering that! Aw no really?! that is such a shame maybe create a blog sale I am sure lots of bloggers would love to try it x

  19. I completely agree with you - I think 2014 has been, what feels like, the shortest year! My Naked 3 palette sat in a draw for a year as I couldn't figure out blusher & lipstick combinations to work with it. I got it out at the beginning of the year & forced myself to try different things & I've used it an awful lot! It'll definitely be making my 2014 favourites! My YSL Rouge Volute Shine (also no. 8) was a gift from a friend. It was my first one & now I'm hooked! I've so far managed to get them either free or for the same price as a drugstore lipstick by using reward points, discounts & vouchers! I'm trying to build a collection without paying any more than £10 per lipstick! Xx

  26. I know you can always get some great products in the drugstore, but high end makeup is my weakness. I'd prefer one beautiful high-end product than loads of drugstore products! I'm DYING to get something from Charlotte Tilbury, that palette is beautiful! I love my nars blush in 'deep throat'! xx

  29. I am so tempted to buy the double wear foundation, I had a sample of it the other week and absolutely loved it. I still prefer my naked 2 palette to my naked 3 one, but that's only because I think the shades are more pigmented x

  35. I really enjoy seeing 'best of 2014' type posts, it definitely makes me feel that products are then worth the hype (but also makes me add lots more to my own wishlist..arghh). I understand your obsession with lipstick as I too would label myself as a lipstick obsessive, I would really like to treat myself to a YSL lipstick this year :) My high end favourites of 2014 would have to be Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Foundation, Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray & the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette :)
