My Favourite Products Of 2013!

top to bottom: Max Factor Lipfinity - Luminous Petal & Max Factor Lipfinity - Glowing Sepia
Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation: Hands down this has been my favourite foundation of 2013, I've done a full review on this foundation which you can read HERE. It's so lightweight it doesn't even feel like I'm wearing foundation, once applied it leaves my skin looking refreshed and dewy but still offers medium coverage and with a some concealer it really give the illusion of a 'flawless' face.

Max Factor Lipfinity: These are definitely my favourite and most used lip product of 2013, if you're looking for a lip product which is seriously going to last you all day then look no further; when I say all-day I'm seriously not exaggerating - they do not budge, you can eat, drink and this will not budge - I sometimes even struggle to take it off! Max Factor Lipfinity's are just amazing, once applied they dry matte and would easily last all day without touch-ups. Unfortunately they don't have the largest shade range but they do offer gorgeous colours, they can be quite drying because they're so matte but once applied with a lip balm underneath I don't really have a problem with them. I love how they're double-sided too so once the matte lip colour is applied if you're not keen on a matte lip, you can apply the gloss which is on the other end! 

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette: I can honestly say this has without doubt been my most used palette of 2013, whenever I'm wearing eyeshadow 95% of the time I'm wearing the Naked 2 palette, the shades are so pigmented and they blend so effortlessly. I really have neglected all my other palettes in 2013 because of how versatile this palette is, you can create so many different eyeshadow looks just using this one palette and my love for this palette is making me want to buy the Naked 3 - which looks so beautiful!

MAC Fix+: I always find that once I've applied powder ontop of my foundation, my face instantly looks matte (which I hate!) I absolutely love dewy skin and once I spray 2-3 spritz of Fix+ it honestly gets rid of the powdery matte finish and leaves you skin look so dewy - I have a full review on this product which you can read HERE - I definitely can't see myself without this product now and I've used it everyday since purchasing it.

L'Oreal 3-in-1 Micellar Solution: I also have a full review on this which you can read HERE. This has definitely been my favourite skincare discovery of 2013 and since discovering it I have used it everyday - I am now on my 3rd bottle, it makes taking my make-up off so easy and it easily takes of all your eye-makeup effortlessly. I hate using a skincare product which makes your face feel tight once you've used but this does the opposite, it makes me feel so refreshed. I can't see myself without it now and I always have a back-up in my draw, look out in Boots/Superdrug because they normally have some kind a deal on - I picked two up for £5 which is amazing considering one is usually £4.99!

MAC Studio Finish Concealer: I can't believe it took me so long to purchase this concealer but since purchasing it I've used it everyday - some days I just wear this and love how it looks! It's so creamy so it blend so easily and cover even the darkest under-eye circle and blemishes. I do like using a lighter concealer normally for my under-eye as this is so thick and full coverage but it's perfect for blemishes and it covers them so well - I would recommend this to everyone!

Real Technique Brushes: I have just pictured some of my favourite and most used brushes but honestly the whole collection is just amazing! They make applying make-up so so easy and quick - I can honestly buff in my foundation within 30 seconds with the buffing brush, the blush brush just applies blush so easily and I love how it blend in my blush as I apply it, the stippling blush is amazing for cream blush and blending & last but definitely not least I love love love using the deluxe crease brush for my concelear, it's just the perfect size and shape so its the perfect size to get underneath your eyes etc. These brushes are so affordable for what they are and I recommend them to everyone! I will definitely be putting up a post with my favourite Real Technique brushes ASAP!

  1. Real techniques are probably my oldest brushes but I still love them so much. The Naked Palette really is amazing isn't it? I onlt got my hands on it quite recently but have used it so much already. I'm sure I'd followed your blog before, but GFC says I haven't so just followed :) - would love for you to come visit my blog x
