Beauty Favourites of 2013

Hey guys, so as it's my first "new year" within blogging, I couldn't resist doing my beauty faves from 2013.
I especially like reading these because the products must be pretty good for someone to feature them being a top contender for a whole year?!?
Now I actually did find it a bit difficult to choose between what I liked and what I liked and used frequently..

I have done quite a few separate posts on some of these products, and will list them below.

From Left to Right the products are;

1. Bioderma H20 Micelle Solution: This is the best product I've tried to remove my eye makeup without making it look like I've been crying. CLICK HERE FOR MY REVIEW

2. Frizz Ease shine spray: This has been a lovely little product for controlling my frizzy hair after I've dried it! I have used it nearly every time I've washed my hair.

3. Boots fake eyelashes: I know I'm not the only one here that has problems putting on fake eyelashes?? I literally gave up using them ever again, but because I was going out for my birthday I thought I would make an effort. These are the best fake eyelashes I've ever used. The glue is clear, which is a massive bonus.
4. Origins Drink Up Intensive overnight mask: This has been featured in many blogs including mine :p It's a great overnight mask for people with dry skin.. like me! CLICK HERE FOR MY REVIEW

5. Vasaline Spray And Go: This does literally what it says on the tin! I am VERY lazy with applying moisturizer, and having a product that designed for people who can't be bothered is my new best friend.

6. MAC Mineralized Skin Finish Natural: As I have dry skin it's really difficult to find a powder without my skin looking like gravel? This powder is the best face powder I've tried, and the fact I've repurchased it is a major "I actually love this"  I HAVE MENTIONED THIS POWDER HERE

7. Scandelize eye shadow: OK, whilst writing this post I realized I have forgot what the actual name for this, and literally can't be bothered to find out right now. Whoops. Anyways, this cream eyeshadow paint is a lovely product to use if you're feeling lazy (like me) it is very long lasting, and I've actually had compliments when wearing this!

8. MAC blush in Stay Pretty: This blusher is a go to pink for everyday (even though it looks quite bright)

9. Cocoa Butter Moisturizer fake tan: Now I will hopefully be doing a full review on this soon. What I will say is that It's my current fave everyday tan, but the smell is horrible!

10. Tangle Teaser: This brush is amazing. End of.  ;)

11. Burts Beas lip balm: I bought this of the recommendation from Zoella. I wouldn't say it's the best lipbalm in the world (even though everyone seems to say it is) but it's great for everyday whilst applying makeup. I do really like this, but I bet I could find better! challenge accepted.

12. Rimmel Instant tan Matte Water resistant: This little guy has been a savior for random unplanned nights out. I feel very self conscious about going out with my natural pale skin colour, and so this gives me an amazing glow, and is really easy to apply.

So there you go, my beauty faves from 2013. I am a bit gutted A foundation isn't in this list, that's because I keep liking, then disliking foundations.

What are your beauty faves from 2013?

ps. someone asked my what camera I used for taking pictures for my blog (sorry I forgot who you were) I used a Nikon Coolpix S3100. It's not a DSLR, but hey it does the job :) x


  1. Great post! I'm impressed that you kept the product count to a manageable number, I wrote up my yearly favorites a couple of days ago and I could barely keep it under fifty! Oops :)


    1. haha, trust me there were many products I wanted to include! xx

  2. I too got the tangle teezer this year and am unsure how i lived without it before!!

  3. I love the spray and go!!

  4. I want to try the tangle teezer. I've seen and read about it so much but I always forget to buy one when I'm in town!

    Happy New Year!

  6. Love the picks! Burts Bees Lip balms are always on my wish list :) They're so minty and smooth on your lips--they're amazing!
    Hope you have an amazing 2014!

  7. I need to try so many of these products now. On the top of my list is Bioderma, think i am the only beauty blogger not to have used it yet. The tangle tezzer is such a life saver for anyone with long hair.


    1. ye it's really good, although quite expensive!! xx

  8. Loads of these things have been on my to try list for ages now. I've only used the Palmers bronzing lotion but I honestly love it to bits :)
