LIPPIE OF THE YEAR: Heroine. The most coveted lippie and no wonder they made it permanent just in time for 2014's Color of theYear (Radiant Orchid). COLOR OF THE YEAR:Taupey Nudes. The grey taupey nudes that came out in the RiRi and Divine Night collections were hot and hard to get. FINISH OF THE YEAR:Retro Matte. So popular that Mac released more colors and many companies followed suit trying to mimic but not getting close. TREND OF THE YEAR:Ombre. The popularity and variety of this look expanded with companies creating 'ombré' products from nail polishes to blushes. SEASONAL SHADE OF THE YEAR:Oxblood. Dark, vampy rich lippies won out as year ended. DRUGSTORE BRAND OF THE YEAR:WetnWild. Consistently winning out in super affordability and dupe ability-this lip product also has the lowest lead content of many lippies on the market! Win-win! FAN FAV OF THE YEAR:Pink. Hot pink, bright fuchsia, you name it - bold-in-your-face Pink!
