Favourite Products of 2013 Part 1: Makeup

Happy New Year!
I hope you all had a great night yesterday and that you have kicked off 2014 the right way. Today I thought I would shade my 12 favourite makeup products of 2013, in no particular order.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation
It was a touch on choosing a favourite foundation but this has to be the winner. I have repurchased endless bottles, it has accompanied me on all my holidays this year and best of all it’s affordable!

Urban Decay Naked Palette
I got a little more into eyeshadows last year but I found the Urban Decay palette to be my safe and easy option. You can create a range of great looks with minimum effort- what more could you ask for?

Sleek Contour Kit
This is a long term love and this items hasn’t left my hand bag for years!

Chanel Bronzer
After lusting over this for years I finally bought it and I am not sure why I waited so long, cream bronzers are much more flattering and I can’t wait to dive into a few more.

Wild About Beauty Multi Purpose Tint in Lynne
This adds the most perfect glossy cheek unlike any other product I have, no need for highlight. It’s really easy to apply with just your fingers meaning it pretty much hasn’t left my handbag, it’s also not too pigmented meaning it’s very subtle and I love teaming it with dramatic eyes/lips.

YSL Mascara
I’m usually a drugstore mascara kind of girl however the YSL mascara took over the last half of the year; it’s super black, adds great volume and just enough length.

Clarins Lip Perfector
This was another do I really need it? product but I just couldn’t put them down after I finally got them, they are just super easy to use and unlike other glosses I find them really comfortable. The shades are also great too, there isn’t a single one I would use.

Mac Patesserie Lipstick

An old favourite- the perfect slightly glossy nudey pink.

Loreal Superliner
Even though I love liquid eyeliner I still struggle to get two perfect lines however I find this is the easiest one to use and is really black which is what I look for in a liner.

Illamasqua Pigment
This had been in my collection for a while, I’m not even too sure where it had come from. I’m not sure if I bought it for really cheap at last years IMATS or if it had come from a goody bag, all I know is that it is the perfect extreme highlighter for the inner corner and even under the brow bone.

Benefit Porefessional
I reach for this primer every time I want my foundation to look flawless as it helps blur pores I find foundation apply much better on top of this one.

Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer
This isn’t the heaviest coverage concealer but I find it to have just enough without being cakey or overly matte, the price is also a plus!

Mac Woodwinked
My go-to super easy all over the lid eyeshadow, looks like you’ve made an effort with just this and a load of mascara.

      I'd really recommend giving it a go, it's not too expensive especially in comparison to Chanel/Armani so you don't have quite as much to lose. X
