My favorite eyeshadow primer of 2014 is the NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base. I got this sample version as a bonus in one of my Sephora orders and, gosh, I almost wish I didn't like it so much because I'm dreading having to splash out $30 for the full-sized version. It does such a great job at making eyeshadows stick to your lids, and I highly recommend it if you have oily eyelids.

My favorite lip products of the year are the Tarte Energy Lip Surgence and the Bite Beauty lip pencil in "Rhubarb". For the spring and summer, the Tarte lip surgence was all I wore. It's a cross between a lip balm and a gloss, and the color adapts to the person wearing it. On me, it turns a bright juicy pink shade. Like I said, perfect for spring/summer. On the flip side, Rhubarb is such a nice burnt burgundy shade. It's reminiscent of the Kylie Jenner lip trend because it's on the brown side, but it's also not a nude. It's actually spot-on to the Pantone color of the year ("marsala"), so it's super trendy right now.
Also, I forgot to photograph it individually but my favorite concealer of the year is the NARS Creamy Concealer. I picked it up back in April and just wow. I have never been so pleased with a concealer. Sometimes I won't even wear foundation because the concealer is enough. It's pricey but I'll definitely be repurchasing it. I blend it out with the Real Techniques Domed Shadow Brush which works phenomenally.
And voila! My favorite products of 2014. Can't wait to discover new faves in 2015 :)
