Seeing now that 2014 is almost over, it's worth taking a look back at some of the products I've reviewed this year and pick out my favorites. This was a big year, I've written over 500 posts so there were a ton of products to choose from! I've narrowed it down to 40 items, ranging over skin care, makeup, fragrances, and hair.

Gorgeous formulation and great color selection.
Finally had a chance to try these guys and now I see what all the hype is about.

Incredibly pigmented, smooth, and bold, definitely the best high-end lipstick release.

A tropical and summery vanilla/coconut-y floral.
Sweet peach with a tinge of ginger.
Sensual and sweet ambergris mixed with salt & pink pepper.
P.S. I totally forgot to include the Mont Bleu glass nail filers. These are a game changer! I started using them since this summer and they are still just like new!
