Guest Post: Best of 2014 | 5 Favourites I Discovered Only Recently

Tuesday, December 23, 2014


Hey everyone! It's Stephanie from theFantasia blogging for Stephanie of Beauty Infinitum! I know, I know, you were probably thinking why I was about to guest blog on my blog!

Today, I am sharing with you the 5 things I discovered recently that has quickly made it to the top of my "Best of 2014" list! Trying to narrow down my favourites to only 5 was a monumental task, but here I am giving it a shot anyhow!

 1 // The new LORAC Mega Pro palette set a lot of hearts racin' and broke a few hearts along the way (for those who were unable to get their hands on it). Don't despair though - even though I think it is a fantastic palette for the value, the Lorac Pro 1 and 2 are equally good if you're more into those shades. This palette features more colour variety which I think is fab for the holidays!

  2 // The Make Up For Ever HD Primer is a must-have in my travel/everyday makeup bag, especially when I want to have my complexion to look as good in the afternoon as it did in the morning. The to-go version featured here fits easily and perfectly into any tiny purse!

  3 // The Stila Collage of Color Lip & Cheek Palette was exclusive to last year's Black Friday sale. I adore this palette so much for anything cheek and lip related - the colours are gorgeous, and you can control the level of pigmentation quite easily. I love how it stains the lips after it wears off!

  4 // I received this Giorgio Armani Eccentrico Blush last year, but sadly it broke en route. However, it is a gloriously beautiful pink coral blush. You can control the shade of pink or coral based on how you mix the colours together. The overlay disappeared quite quickly, not that I minded because I didn't like the glitter very much.

  5 // If I could have $10 for every person who mentioned why they love the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer so much, I'd be able to have so many backups of this. A fantastic full-coverage concealer that literally works double-duty (as an eyeshadow primer, brightener, etc), I think this is one of the best must-haves from MAC. It is relatively inexpensive at around $22 (last time I bought this anyway), compared to some of the Sephora stuff, and will last you quite some time.
