Favourite beauty discoveries of 2014 featuring GLAMGLOW, Darphin, Clinique, YSL, Hourglass & more!

I'm going to break down my favourites of 2014 into separate categories: Hair, Body Care, Skin Care, Make-up & New discoveries. Beauty products are my obsession & I love trying new products. Some I love, some not so much. Today, I am going to share some of my favourite discoveries from 2014 with you.

It will come as no surprise to any of my regular readers that the first products are my beloved GLAMGLOW masks. I own YouthMud, ThirstyMud & PowerMud. They all perform in different ways and if I had to choose only one, it would be ThirstyMud because my skin is very dehydrated, but I adore all three. They are the most effective masks that I have ever used!

Staying with skincare, this year I discovered the first night cream that I have ever loved! It is Darphin Ideal Resource Overnight Cream. It is very light, yet moisturising and it doesn't clog my pores. My skin feels so moisturised when I wake up. I am on my second tub & can see myself using this for a long time to come.

A new release this year that I have fallen in love with, is Clinique Smart Serum. This is a one product does it all serum. It has addressed all of my skin concerns & I don't think I will ever tire of it.

The Wet Brush is a one of the best discoveries I have made this year. It simply glides through my very knotty hair without any tugging or breaking. Love it!

Estee Lauder's Bronze Goddess is my favourite new scent of the year. I just need one little sniff to bring me right back to summer!

In terms of make-up discoveries, there are four that really stand out to me. First up is a foundation: YSL's Fusion Ink. This is a very lightweight foundation, yet it gives incredible coverage. I have never used a foundation quite like it before! This year, I also discovered MAC's Prep & Prime highlighter in the shade Light Boost. This product makes me look like I've had a lot of sleep, when I certainly haven't. I will always have this in my collection & have already purchased a back up!

My favourite discovery in terms of blush this year has been my Hourglass Blush Palette. I literally gasped when I first opened this product! The blushes are so beautiful and if I could only use one blush palette for the rest of my life, this would be it!

Finally, I found a mascara to rival my Holy Grail YSL False Lash Effect mascara & it is from Too Faced. It is their Better than Sex Mascara - silly name, but amazing mascara if like me, you like a false lash, voluminous look to your lashes!

So they are my favourite discoveries of 2014 - what are your new faves?

All of these products are reviewed individually on the blog!
