2013 Makeup Favorites

08 January 2014

Hey lovelies, i like to try and do a favorites post each month, its just a good way to share the products I'm currently loving  and why i like them. I've decided not to do a december favorites, instead I'm going to do a couple of posts dedicated to my favorite products from 2013, the first makeup and the second beauty and random favorites.
This post is my makeup favorites from the past year,  i have picked a single winning favorite for each category like my own little makeup awards. It was hard to choose some of them but i went for the things that i find myself reaching for more than the rest and ones that have really stood out to me for whatever reason. Some are old favorites and some i may have only discovered in the last couple of months, all i expect you've heard me ramble on and on about all of them before but thats simply because i love them!

Primer- Estee Lauder Matte Perfecting Primer
I require a primer to be mattifying and this one really does the trick it also leaves my skin smooth and a great base for makeup.

Foundation- Vichy Dermablend
Foundation was a really hard one to choose, ive tried a few new foundations this year but Vichy dermablend is what i find my self reaching for when i want a flawless base that covers everything yet leaves your skin looking glowing.

Concealer- Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
Great concealer at a great price, not a lot more to say than that really.

Blusher- Sleek Rose Gold Blush
Clear winner for me, the most beautiful flattering pink with gold shimmer.

Bronzer- Topshop Matte Bronzer in Sandcastle
Another clear favorite, i've mentioned it a shed load of times, i love the colour and i haven't used any other bronzer since i bought it.

Highlighter- Sleek Face Form Palette Highlighter, Benefit High Brow
(I know ive picked two highlighters but i use them both for different things so that should be allowed right?)
The Sleek highlighter is very subtle and pretty but thats why i love it, great for everyday use. I also love Benefits High Brow to  highlight the brow bone, inner corners of my eye and my cupids bow.

Powder- Rimmel Stay Matte
This is an old favorite, i've tried all sorts of face powders at all price ranges but i always come back to this one.

Eyebrow Product- Sleek Brow Kit
I like that you have a wax and a powder, it's the powder i use mainly its just a good colour for me.

Eye Palette- Urban Decay Naked 2
Naked 2 palette is a clear winner for me, i've used it to death over the past year, its been with me on all my travels as its got everything you need for a variety of looks.

Single Eye Product- Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in Bikini-Tini
Massive fan of Benefits Creaseless Cream Shadows i have a few colours but this is my favorite i use it all the time as a simple complete eye look and also as a base for other colours.

Mascara- Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme
I have worked my way through a lot of mascara's this year but this one stands out to me, it gives longer fuller lashes and doesn't clump.

Eyeliner- Collection Extreme 24 hour Felt Tip Liner
Another great Collection product at a great price that does the trick. Good black black colour, i love the size of the nib, great for fool proof eyeliner application.

Lipstick- Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in 380 Dark Night Waterl-Ooops
Found it hard to pick a favorite lipstick, there's so many that i love and this is hardly the most wearable of shades but its my favorite of the years new finds, i like that its something different and bolder for me.

Lipgloss- Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon in Peach on the Beach
This has been my most used lip product since i bought it, its just s great colour and i love how it just feels like I'm wearing a lip balm.

Lip Balm- The Body Shop Born Lippy in Watermelon
Soothes my lips nicely and smells so yummy.

So there you have it my favorite makeup products from 2013!
