Best in Beauty: 2013

Hey everyone! Now I don't think any of these will come as a shock to you but since I don't do favorites posts (I just don't try enough new beauty products every month or have the money to) some of these may be a surprise! But these are my favorites of all favorites that I have been loving all year! So I hope you enjoy :)

I'm not going to go into detail about these products since I would be here until 2015 but if you would like an in depth review on ANYTHING let me know and I'll do it :)

Tinted Moisturizer: Origins Vita Zing
Concealer: MAC Pro Longwear
(Drugstore favorite: Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer)
Liquid Highliter: Benefit High Beam
Cheek Stain: Tarte Awakening Cheek Stain (favorite of ALL TIME **desert island product**)
Powder Blush: Milani - Luminoso
                                             Tarte Amazonian Clay - Flush
                          Benefit Sugarbomb
Brow Product: ELF Brow Kit - Ash (it somehow snuck out of the picture)
Foundation Applicator: Beauty Blender

Favorite Makeup Brush Find: Coastal Scents Brushes
                                                  (the one shown is the shade Liquid Diamond)
Cream Eyeshadows: Maybelline Color Tattoos 
(Barely Branded, Tough as Taupe, Bad to the Bronze, Waves of White)
Eyeshadow Stick/Crayon: Rimmel Scandaleyes (shown: Witness White)

 (L to R)

Lip Gloss: NYX Butter Glosses (shown: Merengue)
Fun Lip Product: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream (shown L: Tokyo, R: Stockholm)
Lipstick/Balm Hybrid: Maybelline Color Whispers (shown L: Orange Attitude, R: Lust for Blush)
                                              MAC - See Sheer, Russian Red, Costa Chic
 Best Balms: MAC Tendertones (come out with collection
 Korres Lip Butter - Jasmine
Nivea Lip Butters
Lip Liners: NYX Lipliners (any of them, I've tried them all)
(shown: Plush Red, Pale Pink, Deep Red)

I think the lip products were the hardest to narrow down since they change with the seasons so I trie to pick some from each season that are my favorites. Also with eyeshadows I am so fickle...the ones I talk about here are just my all time favorites...the rest I can interchange regularly and be just fine

if you made it to the end and actually read everything I applaud you and would love if you could like my facebook page to keep updated on everything!

I also reached 500 bloglovin followers and can't thank you all enough! It really means a lot to me especially since I started out the year with less than 100 :D

I've also added sponsorships to my blog as an option if any of you are interested click the tab at the top :)

Thank you for reading and again if there is anything you want an in depth review on just let me know!


  1. Great round up! I think I've tried just about everything in your post and agree with yo on all of them. I LOVE the Korres lip butters. I have one in my hand bag, one at work, and one on my nightstand. I should probably branch out and try the Nivea ones. Are they similar? I haven't tried those yet :P. Thank you!!

  2. Hey Stephanie! Would love to see an in depth review on the Maybelline Color Tattoo's and the MAC lipsticks :)

  3. Massive number of favourites! Isn't Milani's Luminoso the best? I own several of Tarte's Cheek Stains, but I haven't tried 'Awakening' yet!

    (Also, congrats on 500 followers!)


Thank you for reading and taking the time to comment! I'll try and reply as quickly as I can :)
