For better or worse, we have reached the end of the Best of 2014. Today we are focusing on Lips & Tips (aka Nails). This is probably my favorite, but most challenging category because I switch my lip and nail colors almost constantly. Having said that, these colors may not have been worn a ton, but they definitely had more frequent repeats than others. And I should also note that I’m focusing more on the color than the formula in this post. However, if I don’t like a formula, I’m not likely to wear the color very often either so these all have at worst, a decent formula. Enough of the chit chat, I bring you the Best of Lips & Tips for 2014!

Best of 2014 - Makeup for Eyes w/ Too Faced, Ardency Inn, Charlotte Tilbury, Butter London, NARS, Hourglass, Urban Decay & Milani
Continuing on with The Best of 2014, today I am going to focus solely on Eye Makeup so as to not end up with a 40 page post. I’m not necessarily focusing on specific shades, but if there is a shade that I always gravitate towards, I will note it. Though for some tasks I usually grab the same product over and over again, some I tend to switch up a lot – like eye shadow. Given that, any eye shadow mentions may not have been worn a ton, but the formula or the color really struck my fancy in 2014. Let’s get into it and reveal The Best of 2014 – Eye Makeup! J

Continuing on with the avalanche of annual favorites, today we have the Best in Face Makeup & Tools. Kind of a strange grouping but trust me, it works. J Since the Tools are pretty much all used with Face Makeup, it actually makes sense. So, now that we know what we’re waffling on about, let’s actually do it! J

Well, 2014 has come to a close and if I’m completely honest, I think I’m really glad about that. It’s been a bit of a rough year. It started strange and ended equally odd, though there were plenty of highlights in the middle. But now is that time where we put all that to the past and look ahead to the fantastic future that must surely be awaiting, right? J However, the year wouldn’t be complete without a roundup of the Best Products of 2014 now, would it?! Because it’s so hard to include everything in a single blog post without it becoming an epic novel, I’m going to break this up a bit. Today I’m going to share my favorite picks for Skin Care, Body Care & Hair Care. I am trying not to repeat things from previous years (all of which are linked at the bottom of this post), but if I do it will be noted and it will only be done because I really haven’t found anything better. I don't have items to fit into specific categories either - for instance, I don't have a favorite foundation for 2014 so you won't see one. I have just stuck to products that truly stood out to me regardless of their categories. So, without further ado, I bring you the Best Skin Care, Body Care & Hair Care of 2014! J

December Favorites 2014 - Nails Inc, Out of Africa, Dr. Dennis Gross, Paula's Choice, Josie Maran, Living Proof & Alterna
Since I didn’t manage to get my November Favorites posted, I thought I’d do my best to do a December Favorites instead. To be completely honest, I haven’t been wearing much makeup at all in December, but I still managed to come up with quite a few other favorite products to share with you. A few may be rather controversial, but I have seriously been in love with them so they’re included. With that said, let’s start this final round of Favorites for 2014!!! (PS: I’m trying to get together my 2014 Favorites as well, so hopefully that will be up shortly.)

Well, the 12 Days of Christmas are actually just about to start, but the 12 Days of Tarte have come to an end. Insert bittersweet music here. :) It's been fun opening all these doors - though they've been surprisingly difficult to open! :) I hope you have enjoyed seeing the spoils with me...and if not, I really appreciate you sticking around despite them! :) So, on to the door!!!
