The year 2014 has indeed been an eventful year for me. Through this year, I experienced several things that made me grow as a person, including falling back in love again (and cherishing what I failed to), graduating from school, travelling solo (kind of because I was exploring Sydney pretty much on my own for the most part) and learning how to travel with my family now that everyone has grown up. Not forgetting the fact that creating @paradeoflove
made me explore my interests more and made me new friends too. I’m thankful for the opportunities that came by as well, allowing ParadeOfLove
to grow further. To sum up, 2014 was nothing short of amazing 🙂
Anyway, here’s a round up of my 2014 Beauty Favourites – a highlight into the products that I have been using and loving for the year. The products may or may not be launched in 2014 because this is a round up of my personal beauty picks for the year.
We’ll start from the face products, going in order of a typical makeup routine, shall we? 😉
Hello beauties! I know that it’s already a few days past Christmas (Merry belated Christmas!) and it’s probably waaaaaaay too dated for a November 2014 Favourites post but I totally just remembered a few days ago so… here is the post for it!
Well, the month of November for me was pretty much hectic due to the fact that I needed to prepare for my exams, so, much of my favourites in the month were leaning towards essentials and neutrals – makeup items that I wear for me to get out of my house.
You know how sometimes when you pay so much for a particular makeup product but it just doesn’t work for you? I’m sure we all encountered that at least once in our lives and it is very frustrating, I know! For me, a good example would be the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Pencils. It NEVER works for me and it smudges the next hour after application.
Well, let me introduce you to a Taiwanese brand, Solone
, affordable yet full of quality products! I am in love, especially with the eyeliner pencils! They stayed with me for a good 8-hours without budging, I’m impressed! I had been given a chance to try out the Rose Covering Makeup Remover Pencil, the Vivid Fantasy Smoody Pencil, Color Party One Step Magic Eyebrow Pencil and Magical Stick Eyeshadow and the Rose Garden Gel Eyeliners c/o Solone Singapore (the names are so long, pardon the hard-to-read sentence)!
(Did you know that the Smoody Pencil from the Alice Fantasy Adventure Series and Gel Eyeliner have been awarded #1 and #2 on the eyeliner category by Fashion Guide Taiwan this year, respectively?)
