Favorite Mainstream Shades of 2014

Hi everyone!!  The time has come for my year end faves!  So let's kick it off with my top fifteen shades of 2014.  Why fifteen, you ask?  Well, I have no idea.  Stop being so freaking nosey.  
So here we go!!!

This was such an obvious choice for me.  I find myself using this so often.  It's just such a beautiful color.  I really can't get enough of it.  I should probably get a few more back up bottles.

You all know I'm crazy for corals.  This has to be my definite fave for corals of the year - which is saying a lot because we saw so many corals this year!

I know, I was just as surprised as you are.  Reds are never my go-to pick, but this one just screams at me.  It's just so classic but there's something almost muted about it as well.  I love it!

This is another shade that I just can't stop using.  The name is just stupid accurate too, because it packs such a punch!

This peachy orange is just so hard to look away from.  It's creamy and bold and such fun to wear!

Aqua is my color, clearly.  Aquas were pretty big this year - no complaints here - and this one just stood above all the rest to me.  It's beautiful!

I love everything about this one.  It's like wearing newsprint - and that's just awesome.

I didn't think this would be a fave when I first wore it.  But they soft grey undertone really hooked me.

This is just a stunning shade any way you look at it.  That golden shimmer is just amazing.

I think this shade has more depth than the freaking ocean.  It just sparks!!

This is definitely my favorite mainstream glitter topper.  Those inky black hexes mixes with the iridescent hexes makes for such an eye-catching look.

I really didn't think of this as being a fave for me, until I realized just how many times I wore this one this year.  It's a great texture, and the color is so different from all the other textures released this year.

I knew this green would earn a fave spot the minute I saw it in the bottle.  And it's a jelly!  How great is that?!

This dusty pink would have been fantastic on it's own, but that green shimmer really raised the bar!

How beautiful is this one?!  I mean, really!!  It's so sweet and feminine.

So there you have it!  My top mainstream shades of 2014!!  I'll see you tomorrow for my fave indies!!  Happy Painting!
