Best of Beauty 2014 : My Top 20!

I know I'm late to post my Best of Beauty, it's always so hard to only pick 20 products!! I tested and loved so many things this year, but these are my absolute favorites! Have you tried any of these wonderful products yet?

As usual, you can click on each product name to read the full review (and see the swatches!).


MAKEUP




Clarins True Radiance Foundation
I'm still obsessed with this foundation, I have a ton of foundations to test but I keep going back to this one because it has such a beautiful luminous finish! The coverage is light to medium, it even out my skin tone and looks very natural!



Vasanti Love Brights Gel Matte Lipsticks
These matte lipsticks are awesome! They are so pigmented, glide on the lips easily, last more than 6 hours on me and they are less drying than all matte lipsticks I have tried!




Make Up For Ever Artist Shadows
The breakthrough long-lasting gel-powder formula allows for an exceptionally smooth and buttery texture (it's almost like a cream eyeshadow) and the pigmentation is out of this world!




Pupa Miss Pupa Velvet Matt Lipsticks
Creamy upon application, the Miss Pupa Velvet Matt lipsticks dry down to a matte and velvety finish. They are highly pigmented and smells so good, they have a delicious vanilla scent! My favorites are #203 and #402.




Blinking Beauté Premier Lash Collection
I love these mink lashes, they look a-ma-zing! My favorite designs are No. 1, No. 4 and No. 5. These lashes are hand made and are free from dyes or chemical treatments.We can even wear them up to 25 times!



Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit
I'm obsessed with this contour kit, it's a must have! The colors are perfect for light to medium skin tones like mine, they have good color payoff and are easy to blend. I also like the fact that I have everything I need to highlight and contour my face in one small palette!



ColourPop Lippie Stix
I was very impressed that a $5 lipstick could have such an intense pigmentation! The finish is semi-matte but they are creamy so they glides on the lips easily. They last a long time on my lips too!





SKIN CARE



Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster Self Tan
This self tanner will give you the opportunity to get a beautiful and natural tan without changing your skin care regimen. Just mix it with the cream you are currently using! It gives a beautiful golden tan, not orangey at all, and it last 3 days on me.



Biotherm Aquasource Nuit
This dense jelly surprised me, you apply it at night on clean skin and upon awakening ; skin is soft, looks full of moisture and plumped, even after washing your face! It's slightly sticky on me, but it's worth it.




Bio-Beauté by Nuxe Vitamin-Rich Detox Mask
This stuff smells so good and the texture is quite unique (a very thick gel with a sticky consistency)! It doesn't leave any oily or sticky residue, but my skin is super soft and my complexion is radiant and clarified! I already have a backup because it's THAT good.




BATH & BODY




The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Body Lotion
I love almost everything from the Wild Argan Oil collection, but if I had to choose only one thing it would be this one. This lotion sink into my skin so fast, my skin is soft and supple without feeling greasy or sticky! Also, the scent last all day on me.



The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector
This is the best hand cream I have ever tried! I usually put this on at night before bed, I wake up in the morning with soft hands and I don't need to reapply it during the day even if I wash my hands quite often. It is thick and rich, you only need a small amount!



The Body Shop Beautifying Oils
I love how fast these oils sink into the skin ; my skin is supple, soft and deliciously scented, without feeling greasy or sticky! I can't choose a favorite scent, I love them all, but my go-to scent for the summertime is Coconut! 



HAIR



L'Oréal Professionnel Absolut Repair Mask
This mask is so good, it's a very concentrated and nourishing formula. It contains lactid acid, phyto-keratin, ceramides and lipids to repair hair damage. It leaves my hair so smooth and soft, awesome stuff!




Kérastase Ciment Thermique
Ciment Thermique is a blow-dry milk meant to smooth and protect the hair from the heat of styling tools, make hair easier to style and add shine! It doesn't weigh my hair down and never feels greasy. The cuticle is smoothed out, my hair is soft, sleek and shiny!



L'Oréal Professionnel Beach Waves
This spray is awesome! My hair is pretty straight and when I let them air dry, they get a slight wave but it looks a little bit limp. With Beach Waves, my hair is more wavy and voluminous, it really gives a beach-effect. It doesn't feel crunchy or sticky.



PERFUME & NAILS




Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Eau de Toilette
I'm in love with La Vie Est Belle!! It's a sweet (but not overly so), sensual and feminine scent. It starts off a bit powdery and floral on me, but the dry down is vanilla and patchouli. I think if you love Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb as much as I do, you should try La Vie Est Belle.


Yves Rocher Pear Caramel Eau de Toilette
If I could only keep one product from the Pear Caramel collection, it would be this one! Pear Caramel is a mouth-watering fruity and yummy scent! The fresh and juicy pear is followed by a sweet and creamy caramel note. Sooo good!



Rogue by Rihanna Perfume
At first I didn't like it but it grew on me and now I can't get enough! On me, I detect suede and lemon blossom, and the dry down is woods, vanilla and musk. It's a feminine and sensual scent, not your typical girly and sweet celebrity perfume! 



Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-On Manicure
Oh how I love these, I wasn't expecting to like them but I was pleasantly surprised! They are beautiful, are super easy to apply and last quite a long time too (5-7 days on me). Just pop them on and you're ready to go!
