#TMMawards

Hey my beauties! Another year of celebrating beauty products that bring out the best in us! This is my second blog awards, and allow me to show you this year's winners of my best/favorite products of 2014!

These are products that I have received from brands and have re-purchased more than twice on my own because I find myself keep coming back to them in spite of all the products I receive on a weekly basis. But don't get me wrong! This doesn't mean that non-winners have products that are of no good. I just found these products have been working out the best for me!


So let's get this show on the road! Here are the winners for The Makeup Maven's second annual Beauty Product Awards!



Did your favorite product make it to my list too? Do check out my list after the break!

CLINIQUE CHEEK POP

I find myself always returning to this blush in spite of all the good blushes I receive from different brands. This cheek blush has superb texture and looks the most natural!
PIXI FLAWLESS AND PORELESS FACE PRIMER

When I am in a rush and I reach for this product, I find myself skipping moisturizer altogether because it acts as a moisturizer on my face. It eases my dry spots and provides a very healthy base for either my liquid foundation or pressed powder! It's really easy to apply on the face and it really hides my large pores and other fine lines.
LANEIGE WATER BANK MOISTURE FULL AMPOULE

This moisturizer just leaves my skin looking and feeling WOW. It's very water-y but just a few drops is enough to moisturize dry to very dry skin overnight! When my skin needs the hydration is needs, I just reach for this moisturizer and it really soothes my itchy flaky skin almost instantly. A single ampoule can last for more than a couple of months so this is truly worth the money!
DOVE INTENSE HAIR REPAIR

My hair has gone through so much last year from permanent blow dry, to bleaching, to coloring, and to exposure to sun. These factors have led my hair dry and lifeless. I found that DOVE was the only shampoo and conditioner that has revived my hair moisturizing it and leaving it feathery light! It's also the only hair products now that I can use in the shower with a smell that I can stand because I am pregnant. LOL

I found myself using this foundation brush all year! I can't seem to function without this foundation brush. It gives the most natural looking base even with thick cream foundations. I love how it buffs the foundation into the skin making it look like second skin. This is even better than the stippling brush! Its short hairs make it easy to control and get into hard to reach places like under the eyes or on the sides of the nose!


REAL LASTING EYEBROW MASCARA

Its unconventional and innovative toothbrush-type brush makes this eyebrow mascara very easy to coat the hairs on your brows tinting it a lighter shade of brown to give your whole look a lift! You only need a little product to cover your brows so it makes it economical too! Plus, it's affordable.
COVERGIRL LASHBLAST VOLUME WATERPROOF MASCARA

For the longest time, I always kept coming back to Maybelline mascaras. But I recently discovered Covergirl's LashBlast Volume Waterproof mascara where it holds the curl in place and gives maximum length and volume too! I am already on my second tube!
CLINIQUE TAKE THE DAY OFF MAKEUP REMOVER

Removing waterproof liners and mascaras can be a pill! But with Clinique's makeup remover, it's as easy as taking candy from a baby! I love how this formula doesn't sting my eyes even if you get some in your eyes. It also washes aways easily with water so your eyes are not left with an oily film that gives you blurry vision!
HAPPY SKIN IN MISTLETOE KISS

This is the perfect red lipstick that would go with any outfit! Perfect for daytime or evening use. It has a deep red shade that would suit also any skin tone whether cool or warm.
EYE OF HORUS LIQUID DEFINE

I love how this liner disguises false lash bands well and makes it look very natural. Creates true-black lines without making it look grey! It's also easy to control and lasts all day!
K-PALETTE LASTING 2WAY EYEBROW

A winner 2 years running for best eyebrow product, the K-Palette is a favorite eyebrow tool of mine! It creates natural looking brows and it's the most convenient to bring around in your purse. Available in the most natural looking shades as well!
INGLOT FREEDOM SYSTEM EYESHADOWS

With hundreds of shades to choose from, these eyeshadows are so affordable starting at PhP 375 per shadow! The palettes are also so sleek and convenient that makes it easy to refill and replace with other shades depending on what you need.
CANMAKE NOSE SHADOW POWDER

This is definitely a product I can't live without! I am on my second pan. I use it on my clients too! It creates the most natural contouring for the nose. When photographed, it doesn't look like a bronzer or too orange-y like most contouring powders.
PIXI EYE BRIGHT LINER

This eye liner makes the most natural looking wide-eyed effect on the eyes. Just use on the waterlines of your lower lash lines and make your eyes look naturally wider and bigger! The shade makes the trick look natural, unlike white eyeliners.
MAC MINERALIZE SKINFINISH PERFECT TOPPING

Instead of using this powder as a topper for foundation, I use it to highlight the key areas of my face: forehead, nose line, cheek bones, chin, brow bones and even on top of the cupid's bow!
DERMAL FACIAL MASKS

Rehydrating the skin and restoring its elasticity and vibrancy is now easy with these facial masks from Korea! Dermal is my most favorite brand of masks. I always have them in stock in my refrigerator! Using them cold will reduce puffiness!
BURT'S BEES LIP SHIMMER

These make the best balms for summer because they feel very light on the lips, plus it's very cooling on the lips! I love how they don't dry my lips and they provide enough color too! For days when you want to wear minimal makeup! Very easy to bring around in your purse too and they have a wide array of colors to choose from!
HAIRSHAFT SALON

If you think your hair is hopeless, head out to Hairshaft Salon to have your hair colored. They can copy whatever hair color you want from a magazine peg! They do not just bleach your hair and apply coloring, but they really color correct your hair to get the color that you want! They also do not dilute coloring like other salons do. Hairshaft is definitely the go-to salon for coloring!
CURE NATURAL AQUA GEL

Exfoliation is definitely the best beauty regimen you can do for your skin to maintain healthy skin! The best in exfoliation? CURE! It's the most gentle way in exfoliation and you don't have to worry about scratching the surface of your skin with grains. Just use twice a week and you are left with beautiful, bright glowing skin. Plus, it's affordable!
BOBBI BROWN SKIN FOUNDATION SPF15

Bobbi Brown's Skin Foundation is the best makeup to give you second skin-like foundation. It's very flexible and gives you medium to full coverage without creasing on fine lines! It also doesn't sink in pores, it hides them. Plus, you get sin protection too!

So, that's it! Thank you so much for reading my list of best products for the year 2014! For those brands and products that didn't win doesn't mean they are not any good, I just chose these top products to be the best because they are products I keep coming back to and ones that I use regularly with clients!

So, let's re-start the clock, and let's see what great products we will have this year!




HAVE A GREAT 2015 YEAR MAKEUP-MAVENERS!
