Beauty Discoveries of 2014

2014 was a big year for me in the beauty discovery department. It was the year that I really started to explore and dive deeper into beauty products. I discovered a lot of great gems over the past 365 days and I rounding them all up for you.

Tinted Moisturizers: Before 2014 I barely even thought about foundations let alone knew what tinted moisturizers were. I picked up the NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer after seeing countless blog posts and YouTube videos gushing over the stuff. Although it wasn't immediately love (I had of course gotten the wrong shade), I slowly began to realize the wonders of tinted moisturizer. I'm fortunate enough to have very good skin so the light coverage is perfect. Tinted moisturizers help to even out my skin tone without me having to use more makeup than necessary. There are a number of different tinted moisturizers I have my eye on that I'll be sure to get a hold of in 2015.

Bumble and Bumble: Another thing blogs introduced me to, I've wanted to try Bumble and Bumble products for almost a year. I finally picked up a set from Sephora a month or so ago and I'm immediately hooked. My hair actually reacts to Bb products which is definitely a rare occurrence. I will be exploring this brand even more in the future. 

Lip Crayons: 2014 was the year of the lip crayon for me. I picked up my first lip crayon from the drugstore after much debate as to whether or not I really needed or even wanted it. At first application I was hooked. They're incredibly simple to use, alarmingly pigmented, and downright spectacular. I have quite a few in my collection after a year's worth of swooning, but I'm sure I'll find a reason to keep buying them next year.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes: Another product I knew oodles about before finally getting my hands on one, these blushes are everything people say about them and more. I'm honestly surprised I only have two after a year of love, but there's always time to add another to my collection. Incredibly long lasting these blushes pack a punch in the pigmentation department. Definitely worth a swatch when you pass them in a store next.

It's amazing to think how far I've come in just one year. My blog has grown exponentially while I'm constantly making new beauty discoveries. Thanks for a fantastic year and I'll see you in 2015!

What beauty discoveries have you made this year?
