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!
