2013 Favourites: Makeup Part One

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a fantastic New Years Eve! I can't believe it's 2014 but for now here's a look at some of my favourite beauty products for 2013.

Throughout 2013, I basically only used two foundations: The Bourjous Healthy Mix Serum and the Revlon ColorStay Foundation (which I've used for years). Both are amazing foundations which provide a flawless finish. The Revlon one does give a tiny bit more coverage so I tend to use it more often but the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum is excellent for a subtle coverage. I also became addicted to two cult products- the Nars Laguna Bronzer, which I can safely say I've used everyday for the last few months, and the MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Stereo Rose which gives a gorgeous peachy-pink glow to the cheeks.

My all time favourite mascara, the Covergirl Clump Crusher, was discovered in 2013 and I am oh so happy that I found it! It gives amazing length and volume without leaving any clumps at all- the perfect mascara! I also fell in love with the Maybelline Colour Tattoos, specifically in the shade Bad to the Bronze, as well as MAC's All That Glitters eyeshadow. Both are the perfect shade to just sweep over the lid for a simple look but can also be built up to give amazing colour.

I think it's safe to say that my ultimate lip colour in 2013 was the Maybelline Color Whisper in Lust for Blush. I've worn this so many times it's not even funny- it's just the perfect, subtle pink. However I did also love the Maybelline ColorSensational lipstick in Born With It which is another gorgeous light pink.

Make sure to let me know what your favourite make up products have been this year and stay tuned for part two!

  1. I'm absolutely in love with the bad to the bronze colour tattoo - the colour 'barely branded' has got to be my favourite though. I've just done a post on my favourite products of 2013 and suffice to say I've had quite a few. Love your blog x

  2. I'm in love with half the products you mentioned here as well. I'm never without my Revlon Colorstay foundation!

  3. I really want to try the Revlon foundation at some point. Maybe I'll pick it up if I'm ever in the UK.

  4. Newest follower! I found your blog through Couture GirI's Amazing Advertisers post. I have to say that I am absolutely in love with your blog and your blog design! I just picked up the Revlon Colorstay Foundation for the first time today, but sadly I got a shade too light :( I love your taste in lipstick colors because pinky nudes are my favorite! I must go try those two out now :)
