Beauty: Hyped Products of 2014

A look back over the hyped products of 2014:
Urban Decay Naked 3 palette (and later on the Vice palette and the Vault) (picture source here): I think I had this for about a week before selling it on eBay as the rose toned colours just didn't suit me. I prefer the Naked 2 palette. A lot of people were going crazy over this as they wanted to complete their set, but honestly I don't think that it's any good.

Smashbox Full Exposure (picture source here) and the Narsissist palette (picture source here): These two palettes sort of link in together as they're quite similar and I'm pretty sure they were released around the same time. Personally, I still want the Narsissist palette as it contains colours that I would actually wear on a daily basis. The Smashbox one is too glittery for me.

The Revlon Matte lip balms (picture source here) were hyped up because a lot of bloggers were sent them to review. I still haven't purchased any and haven't really heard of anyone talk about them since they were released, yet I still want one. Do/did you have one?

Zoella Beauty (picture source here) and Tanya Burr Lips and Nails (picture source here) were both hyped up because they were designed by two successful YouTubers. I haven't bought anything from the Zoella range as i read some reviews from those who actually purchased them saying they were a bit naff, but I did pick up a nail varnish by Tanya Burr, which was surprisingly nice.

Benefit Push Up Liner (picture source here) is one that i did buy. I don't use it anymore as I found it started to dry out quickly, but I did like it to begin with.

Garnier Micellar Water (picture source here) is another one that I purchased. I didn't buy it straight away, I went for the L'Oreal Skin Perfection. When that ran out I bought this one, and quickly wished I hadn't. The L'Oreal one is so much better (although nothing beats Clinique Take The Day Off).

Did you purchase any of these products? Are there any other hyped products I've missed?

  1. I didn't know that the L'oreal version of the Micellar Water was that much better, maybe I should give it a go once I run out of the Garnier one! There were definitely a lot of hyped up products last year. Do you remember the Charlette Tilbury lipsticks? They were everywhere!

  2. I really disliked the L'Oreal version of the Micellar water, but maybe that was because I have sensitive skin and I just thought that the Garnier version removed my make up so much easier. I agree with you though, I prefer my Naked 2 palette over 3, I think that the shades are so much more pigmented x

  3. I use the L'Oreal micellar too, like it a lot.

    I do have one of the matte balms and I do like it though don't wear it loads, I love the glossy ones.

    I like Naked 3 but the rose gold obsession hasn't disappeared for me, yet.

    Wasn't too fussed about the Zoella stuff, I have the fragrance, it was ok, nothing special

    Love the post :)

  4. I have heard such mixed reviews on the Zoella range which has really put me off buying anything I would rather stick to LUSH and know 100% I would love it! Naked palettes....I want them so badly but there soo expensive and I struggle to pick what one I wan't first! Xx

  5. I've used both the L'Oreal & Garnier waters and thought that they were really similar! I tend to buy the L'Oreal because the shop I go to sells it much cheaper haha. Love this type of post!
