We love beauty launches here at R29. In fact, we count down the minutes to when we can get our hands on a new favorite lipstick or night cream. There are so many of 'em, though, that it can be easy to forget which shiny, new toy came out when.
Plus, 2014 was a huge year for beauty: We saw major lines take off, luxury brands test the waters of skin care, and technologies emerge that we thought were years away.
Luckily, we kept track of it all. If you need a refresher, we've rounded up our favorite launches from the past year for you to feast your eyes on. But, make sure you're paying attention: We've also sprinkled in a handful of upcoming 2015 releases that we can't wait to test-drive.
Here's to a rad (and gorgeous) new year.
