37 Beauty Products We Couldn't Get Enough Of In 2014

The beauty gods blessed us with exciting innovations, envelope-pushing trends and unconventional icons this year, all of which made us reimagine the way we make ourselves up.

In keeping with our mission to stay on top of the latest and greatest, we tried just about every new shade of burgundy lipstick, swiped on the glossiest nail polish colors and dyed our locks with the most vibrant at-home hair color kits.

From game-changers to old favorites, below are our Best in Beauty award winners for 2014. Tell us if you're fans of any of these products.
