Hits and Misses of 2014

Hits and Misses of 2014

How many of you anxiously wait for the Favorites of The Year post? Me, me, me! Reading about people’s must-haves, secretly starting my new year wishlist, scouting the makeup counters and hoarding for the next year’s Hits and Misses, is all so exhilarating. Although I am a tad bit late in joining the favorites bandwagon.

To be honest, on one hand, I stumbled upon some I-can-never-live-without stuff in 2014. On the other hand, some categories stay as repetitive as before (hint:foundation).  And of course, we also cannot forget those products that did nothing besides making a hole in my pocket.

FOUNDATION - Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream (review)

SETTING SPRAY – E.l.f Studio Makeup Mist & Set Spray

CONCEALER – Maybelline Fit Me Concealer

SETTING POWDER – Maybelline Fit Me Pressed Powder (review)

LIPSTICK – Chanel Rouge Allure in '138 Fougueuse'

BLUSH - Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in 'Thankful'

HIGHLIGHTER  theBalm Mary Lou Manizer 

EYESHADOW -   Korres Matte Eyeshadow in '35M Brown'

MASCARA – L’Oreal Flutter Midnight Mascara 'Extra Black'

EYELINER – Astor 24h Perfect Stay Style Muse Eyeliner (review)

EYEBROWS - MUA Brow Kit (review)

NAIL POLISH - Nicole by OPI City Pretty Rose (review)

MAKEUP BRUSH – Nanshy Eye Crease Brush (review)

MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer in 'Funk' (review)
I have never come across such an irksome liquid lipstick. This has such a blotchy formula and starts to peel off once it has dried on lips.

Luscious Ather Shahzad Lip Gloss Palette (review)
If this thing wasn't too pricey, I would have forgiven it. Considering it is priced at PKR 2150 ($21) and contains a range of similar, non-wowing lip glosses, it is pretty useless.

Astor Seduction Codes Mascara (review)
I love Astor products! And it is such a sad thing that all its mascaras go straight to the misses, every year. Tsk, tsk! Again, this particular mascara is just a waste of money and does nothing for the lashes.
