I want to start talking about beauty on SheBlogs, and not just hair, so I thought what better to do that than to tell you all about my favorite beauty products of 2014? I’ve already done a favorite hair products of 2014, (which you can check out here) so let’s just jump right in!
Best Lip Product: LimeCrime Velveteen in Wicked
If you’re thinking about getting a limecrime lipstain, I’m telling you right now to just DO IT! It’s a lip stain that dries really matte but DOESN’T dry out your lips. It’s a perfect vampy color that’s not too dark, the color payoff is amazing and it looks good on everyone! it is kind of pricey but so worth it, I don’t regret buying it AT ALL. They also have the Velveteen’s in other colors that I can’t wait to pick up!
Best Powder: Neutrogena Skin Clearing Mineral Powder
I have naturally darker under eye circles, so I have to apply a concealer and a powder sometimes when I don’t want to look tired. I love this Neutrogena one! A little goes a long way (I’ve been wearing this powder for a year now) and it really blends in with your skin without making your makeup look too powdery. My only gripe is that they don’t have a HUGE color selection, ugh!
Best Mascara: Benefit They’re Real Mascara
Honorable Mention: Scandaleyes Mascara
You have heard a few beauty gurus rave about this mascara, and the hype is well worth it! This mascara makes your eyelashes look so long and dark and give the illusion that you are wearing falsies. This mascara is high end, so it’s kind of pricey, but it’s honestly the only mascara you need!
I love Scandal Eyes mascara by Rimmel, it’s super black and combs out each and every one of my lashes!
Best Lip Moisturizer: Baby Lips
I kid you not, I have had the same container of Baby Lips for at least a year. It keeps my lips so moisturized and even adds a little tint when I don’t feel like wearing lip stick. Baby Lips comes in an assortment of different colors and they’re about $3.99. I recommend every girl own a couple!
Best Makeup Palette: Naked Two Palette:
Hands down, this is the best makeup palette that I’ve ever tried! It’s a little on the pricey side, but it’s definitely worth it. I especially love the Naked Two Palette because it has the right mix of smokey shadows and golden shadow, shimmery shadows and metallic shadows. The color payoff is amazing, and it’s definitely easy for travel!
