14 products to take into 2014

Happy New Year to you all! I hope you have had a good holiday season.

I have been a fairly rubbish blogger this year but I have still discovered and enjoyed lots of products.

 1. Maybelline The Eraser concealer: if you look over the rubbish packaging, this is a great, very brightening yet natural looking concealer and it is very reasonably priced too.

2. Eucerin Hyaluron Filler moisturiser and eye cream: even though I should appreciate the filler part of the product, the reason I like them so much of the fact that it really moisturises my skin and it then feels soft. I credit the moisturiser with avoiding the usual winter flaking and dryness.

3. YSL Babydoll mascara: It's love, review here

4. Chloe Perfume: I'm not much of a fragrance lover or any good at describing them. I used to like Chanel Chance but went off it. I didn't use to wear perfume everyday but since I got Chloe, I do. It's perfect for me.

5. Bare Minerals Ready Eyeshadow Duos: I have the Epiphany and the Top Shelf: they're brilliant neutrals. Worn here.

 6. Smashbox Photo Op trios: Colours for every taste. My favourite is the cool-toned Cover Shoot.

7. NYX Blush in Taupe: I finally get why everyone raves about it. Perfect for contouring on pale skin.

8. Rimmel ScandalEyes eyeliners: I own the taupe and the nude ones and they are the perfect combination of smooth and long lasting.

9.Tarte blushes: I have built up a small collection of them through the internet, US friends and friends travelling to the US. They are just beautiful.

And to finish the 'game-changers'  ( I don't like the phrase but I couldn't think of a better one)

10. Make Up For Ever Aqua Brow: stays on all day, gives great definition and even though it is expensive, you only need a tiny tiny amount each time.

11. NUXE Huile Prodigieuse: this dry oil smells divine and leaves skin feeling really soft. I saw when in France that they've released a fragrance with the same smell!

12. Clinique CC Cream: foundation with amazing moisturising properties. It's ah-mazing. 

13. NARS Velvet Matte pencil in Dragon Girl: pretty much the only red I've worn since getting it. Review here.

14. Hourglass Ambient Light powder in Dim Light: it blurs out pores and makes skin look more luminous. 

What have been your 'game changers'?

  7. I really want to dry Nars - Dragon Girl, I own Cruella and Red Square already but I love the formula and you can never have too many reds :). The Tarte blushers are also on the top of my wishlist of products to try, too :) xx
