I can’t quite believe that 2014 is almost over its been a crazy whirl wind of a year but lots of fun. I am so lucky to get to try out some amazing products because of my beauty blog. So here are some of the best products in 2014 that I posted about on shahnaz loves beauty:
This year was a discovery of some new foundations that launched in SA and the Clarins True Radiance Foundation is right up there for amazing foundations as it gives that gorgeous glow to the skin. I also loved the Stila Stay All Day Foundation that I got to test out, its got a semi matt finish with amazing coverage and looks phenomenal in front of the camera. I have tested it out on quite a few shoots ncluding my most recent Elle Uptown Girl editorial and it looks amazing.
For skincare my absolute favourite was the Ren 1 Minute Flash Rinse its a quick and easy Vitamin C infused facial. It smells amazing and leaves skin feeling so good. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out go buy yourself one its well worth it. My favourite face mask this year was the Elizabeth Arden 5 Minute Facial firstly because its so quick so I easily fitted this one in before my crazy day started and my skin was glowing after using this bad boy. LOVE it. Khiels has been on my top list this year, their skincare is truly amazing and I would recommend to anyone. I have absolutely loved using the Hydro Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum and the Super Multi-Corrective Cream my skin has been so much happier for it.
You all know I love a mascara and am a massive fan of a lot of brands out there but this year the Lancome Grandiose Mascara stood out for me because of its packaging and the ease of which you can apply plus my lashes look pretty gorgeous too.
As you all know I am a pro makeup artist and brushes are my life and the big discovery for me this year was the Sigma Brushes that have totally taken over from my Real Techniques. The Flat Kabuki F80 brush is my all time favourite leaving a flawless finish and is just so soft on the skin. Winner hands down for me.
The Body Shop makeup was a surprise for me because its one brand that I never thought would be that great when it came to makeup. Its in my list because its a great budget brand with some really great items. Love the bronzer and the highlighter so much I have added them into my pro kit plus the highlighting pens are great and you won’t be breaking the bank so happy days all around.
My all time favourite product this year is Foreo Luna I just can’t stop posting about it I love it that much. Its a pricier item but one that will last a life time and your skin will be better than you have ever seen it. If you can’t quite afford the bigger one then you can get your hands on the mini for R1900 on zando.
There have been some amazing products this year and am so excited to share some new products I am busy testing out so watch this space in 2015.
