Best of Beauty 2013

Hey Beauties! I'm back from my holiday and now I'm ready to post what where my favorite beauty products from last year. Most of the products I discovered 2013, so I'm quite excited what this year will bring :) But lets get to the favorite products part ;)

I'm starting off with my favorite skincare finds and first one is Lancome Bi-Facil non oil instant cleanser. This is the best makeup remover that I have ever used. It doesn't irritate my eyes and takes makeup off so easily. This is my second bottle of it. I don't buy it regularly just because its so price. Only sometimes when I have been good and haven't shopped that much :P

This year I discovered for myself Lancome Hydra Zen soothing anti-stress moisturising  cream. I feel that my skin is more softer and smoother after using it. I'm not sure if this cream fits my skin in summer months, but we will see when it gets warmer.

Garnier Pure Active Intensive toner is my long time favorite. It doesn't let my skin breakout and it just keeps it nice and clean :)

Lets move to makeup products and start with a primer. This year I discovered the most amazing primer ever and its The Body Shop Tea Tree pore minimiser. I found out about this product from blog Just Jess. So thank you Jess! :)

When it comes to concealer then I like quite many, but one was better then the other and its Bourjois Touche Health Mix brush concealer. It does a great job under the eyes and it blends like a dream and it soen't set in the fine lines.

I have been loving quite a lot Rimmel Stay Matte foundation. I'm in shade 100 Ivory. It matches perfectly with my skin tone and I love the texture of it. Also it covers well and I don't get as shine through out the day.

Last year I discovered a new brand for myself and its Too Faced. I like quite many of their products, but I have been using non stop their Absolutely Invisible pressed powder. Its the best product to seal in your foundation and concealer :)

In the picture you can see my very loved The Body Shop honey bronzer (in shade 01 light matte). I have used it that much that the compact has broken. I don't know how it happened :( Its in perfect shade for me and looks on skin so natural.

I love blushes and it was quite hard to choose only one blush, but I made my heart hard and made my choice and its The Balm Cabanaboy. Its dusty pink color and I find it goes well with my complexion.  Also its pigmented and is easy to blend. 

My most used highlighter was Bourjois Poudre de Riz de Java. It gives the nicest glow and it smells good as well. I like the packaging as well. I like that I can close off the powder and take it with me, when traveling.

Here are my favorite eye product picks and lets start off with the primer. I got this primer in a beauty swap and its Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion. This really is amazing product. Makes my eyeshadow last longer and the color of the eyeshadow is more vivid.

When It comes to eyeshadows, then I have been using the most The Balm Meet Matte(e) Nude palette. I never have liked nude color eyeshadows that much, but these are really nice and I have been using this palette a lot.

I picked 2 liners that I have been using and the first one is L'Oreal Gel Intenza Eyeliner in Pure Black. Its really nice to apply and I like how long it stays on. Second liner that I have been liking is Avon Glimmerstick Diamonds eyeliner in Black Ice. I love how easy it is to apply it and the little glitter in the liner. 

When it comes to mascara I think everyone who has read my blog knows I love Too Faced mascara Better Than Sex. Its the most amazing mascara I have used in my life. It makes my lashes so long and gives so much drama to the eyes. If you haven't tried it yet, you should ;)

Lets talk about lips :) My first discovery this year was Rimmel Apocalips and the shade I like the most is Galaxy. I got a lot of use out of this gorgeous product. These are so pigmented and I like how well it stays on.

Another discovery from last year is Deborah Glossissimo lip gloss in shade 13. I love the pigmentation of this product and also the sweet scent it has :)

The last lip product that I have been loving is quite a new find, but I can see myself use it a lot. Its YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in shade 19 Fuchsia in Rage. This stays on like no other lipstick I have used. Its just amazing product!

This was amazing find last year and its Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. It makes applying my foundation so much easier. I have used it a lot and so far it still usable, so it lasts some time :)

I promise its the last favorite :) and its The Body Shop Fragrance White Musk Smokey Rose. I love it and have been using it almost everyday :) Great fragrance in fall/winter time.

This is all my favorites from 2013 and hopefully I can find this year as much new favorites then last year. I hope you liked this post and let me know in the comments below what where your favorite products in 2013.
