Amy's 2014 Cosmetics, Skincare and Haircare Products Overview + Review

As the year 2014 is coming to a close, I want to share with you what are the products I use throughout the year. This article will be divided into three sections: Make-up / Cosmetics, Skincare and Haircare. In those sections, I will provide the name of products used, the duration used and the reason I changed to another product.

The reviews will be slowly updated here with links to the individual review post. I will first provide company, its contact and product information, ingredients, followed by price (if I remember), some background on how I bought / got it and finally my opinions on the product. 

Disclaimer: Even though some of the products may be sponsored (will be stated), I did not receive any monetary benefits from the company and my reviews will always be my honest opinions.
