BEST OF 2014 // AMANDA’S PICKS

Looking back at all of the posts from this year, I realized just how many products we’ve actually reviewed–and there are a ton!

Originally, I was going to do a top 10 list, but there are so many great products old and new that I’ve loved.

MAKEUP

Lipstick Queen Silver Screen PolishesLipstick Queen in You Kid: At first I thought I was only selecting this one because it was the first nude lipstick that really looked good on me, but the packaging and formula for the whole range of Silver Screen lippies was outstanding.

 

MAC // Capricious and Ruby WooMAC Ruby Woo: This one is an oldie, but somehow, I only tried it for the first time this year. Incredible staying power and an iconic, perfect shade of red. Everyone should own a tube of this.

 

Chanel Sephora Volume Mascara 4Chanel Le Volume Mascara: My standby mascara now for pretty much the whole year. And that is saying a lot. Great formula and creates volume and length with ease.

 

 

Dior Star Foundation and Concealer 2Dior Star Concealer and Foundation: Creates a luminous complexion and I adore the concealer and use it every day. Great coverage with a natural finish.

 

 

IMG_4370Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss: Launched this fall, these glosses create a hit of colour with a few easy swipes. Plus, super chic packaging never hurt anyone.

 

SKINCARE

IMG_4357Vichy Aqualia Thermal Serum: Another new launch, this one won me over instantly. Super silky texture, a dream to apply, and my skin was devastated as soon as I ran out. Creates plump and bouncy skin.

 

Vichy Aqualia Thermal MaskVichy Aqualia Thermal Night Spa: Another newbie from this year, and another winner for Vichy! A super effective and again silky product that works double agent as a moisturizer or mask.

 

Biologique Recherche VIP02 1Biologique Recherche VIPO2 Serum: A little bottle that does so much for a complexion. That putting a layer of glass over your face that brings life to your skin and smooths the complexion.

 

Elta MD // Clear SunscreenElta MD Clear Sunscreen: Feels like a moisturizer, but is a physical sunscreen offering SPF 46. Also contains ingredients to help soothe breakout-prone skin. I use it every. single.day.

 

 BODY

Margaret Dabbs 3Margaret Dabbs Footcare: I used to do nothing for my feet except go for a pedicure once in a while. This set has me filing, scrubbing and hydrating my feet on the regular. Plus, the foot cream is a dream and soaks in immediately.

 

e1e8b-vichycapitalsoleilinvisiblemistspf30Vichy Capital Soleil Invisible Mist: A body sunscreen that is super light, smells great and non-greasy. Vichy really killed it this year.

 

 

HAIR

IMG_4347Kerastase Discipline: I love this entire range. Fights frizz and humidity without weighing hair down. My love for Kerastase has only grown in 2014.

 

 

IMG_4949Kerastase Ciment Thermique: This glaçage creates soft and silky hair that is easy to blow dry. A no brainer.
