Marc Jacobs Sky Liner 7-Piece Petites High Liner Collection Full review →
This has to be one of the best holiday sets of 2014! Marc Jacobs eyeliners are among the ones I reach for all the time. Superior gel-like texture with creamy, smooth, and incredibly pigmented formula. They never tug the delicate eye area.
The only thing to keep my severely dry lips in check during colder months! I slather it on every night to bed and always wake up with soft and supple lips! Day time-appropriate as well but you may need to blot slightly to eliminate the “shiny” finish.
theBalm makes one of the best highlighters on the market and my favorite is Miss Cindy — a gorgeous peachy rose gold pink. The effect is subtle and beautiful. The formula is soft and an absolute dream to blend.
When it comes to cream shadow pencils, you can't go wrong with these Caviar Sticks! Soft, smooth, long-lasting, and with the right amount of shimmer. Looks great alone as well as a base for powder shadow.
Blush Voluptè Heart Of Light Powder Blush in Light 03 Full review →
When I'm in a hurry, I always grab this blush because the color is soft enough that there's no way I can overdo the application. A beautiful purple-toned pink matte with a hint of peachy pink highlight. Goes on sheer but can easily be built up for drama.
Full coverage, natural matte finish, with a super affordable price tag, it's no surprise that this concealer is favorited by so many! The pump dispenser can be a pain but I promise it gets better over time.
Rouge Volupté Shine Lipstick in 19 Fuchsia in Rage Full review →
Although it doesn't apply fuchsia purple as seen in the tube, it's still a very nice color of magenta on my lips. Extremely moisturizing and long-lasting with delicious mango scent. Complexion-brightening effect is a lovely bonus.
Pore Minimizing Photo Finish Foundation Primer Full review →
Pores gone right before your eyes! This primer leaves extremely natural finish, thanks to its flesh-toned color and lightweight formula. It also mattifies the skin a great deal so you can follow with your foundation immediately after.
This item is not beauty-related but it is definitely among the best of 2014 discoveries for me. Groovebook is a photobook subscription service that you pay a monthly minimal fee to get 100 of your photos printed on quality glossy papers. My first book is filled with my makeup product photos! :)
Another great holiday set of 2014! Five NARS famous lip pencils (3 satins and 2 velvet mattes) in a range of rich and long-lasting colors that include red, coral, pink, and even nude! The keepsake box is a nice and sturdy acrylic box that is reusable, too!
