2014 Favourites: Lipsticks!

I had a real difficult time narrowing down my favourite lip products from 2014 because I have so many favourites (I wear a lipstick daily!) but these were the beauties that made my top 5 picks!

Illamasqua Liquid Lip in Exotic: I have a big thing for liquid lipsticks because they're so pigmented and stay in place for hours.  When Illamasqua launched their Matte Liquid Lipsticks early in 2014 I couldn't wait to get one.  Exotic is a tangerine orange shade which has taken place of my usual favourite red lip (Morange by MAC), which is a pretty big deal!  See full blog post here.

Sleek in Peaches and Cream: I LOVE Sleek Lipsticks; they're incredible, full stop.  Barely There is my favourite lipstick of all time, but I've fallen back in love with Peaches & Cream - a peachy orange shade which is an amazing dupe for MAC's Limited Edition Sushi Kiss.  This lipstick is pigmented, soft and creamy and so affordable - I urge you to try them!

Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Colour in Naked Sun: This was one of my go-to nude lipsticks throughout Summer - Autumn.  You can see full swatches of just how stunning it is in this post.  It's a sheer lipstick but I find it gives the perfect amount of nude pink-beige to look natural but 'done-up'.

Blistex: Okay, hands up, this isn't the most glamorous lip product BUT it's a good 'un and an all year round must have.  I get ridiculously sore and chapped lips in the colder months and I love Blistex because it gives them a tingly feeling once applied and really helps to repair them.

Urban Decay Lip Liner in Naked: The end of 2014 was ALL about the big Kylie Jenner drawn in lips and this was my go-to lip liner of the year.  Naked is the most perfect beige-pink liner - soft, creamy, easy to apply and a great base for nude lips!

The final in this series is coming up next and it is my favourite foundations and concealers from 2014 - stay tuned!

Let me know your favourite lip products of 2014!
