Top Beauty Product Discoveries of 2013


A couple of staples have cropped up this year and I’m sure I’m forgetting a fair few but I like changing up my so often true favourites are hard to come by.

Clarisonic Mia- I got this for christmas last year and is amazing. The difference in my skin has been great, while I definitely don’t have perfect skin, I’ve noticed less breakouts and even when I have them the rest of my skin still looks great.

Bobbi Brown Classic Everyday Palette- again I got it last christmas and is a great palette of basics. All matte (blush-bright pink and eyeshadows-cream, warm brown, black). I use it everyday on my brows and as a highlight. I also love layering the bright pink over a more rose toned blush to add dimension to my face.

Inglot 395p- Probably my favourite eyeshadow ever. It has a super metallic, high sheen finish which just opens up the eyes and adds the world to a look. If you light shimmery inner-corners you need this in your life. I finally hit pan on this yesterday and I was pretty proud of myself.

Max Factor Clump Defy Mascara (AKA Cover Girl Clump Crusher)- While it might not be totally clumpless it does a great job of adding length and volume to the lashes without becoming a spidery mess but a heavier look can be created without all the clumps if needed.

Revlon’s Black Cherry- A gorgeous blackened berry that can be in a full on vamped out look or sheered out for a more of a stained look which is just has pretty.

Urban Decay Oz the Great and Powerful- Theodora- It might not be the most interesting palette in the world, I do love the browns and think it is so easy to get a slightly smokey everyday look. The greens are also great to add as a pop of colour along the lower lash line and and I adore Beware which is the matte brown as it is the perfect transition colour for my skin tone. 

Revlon Lipgloss- Embellished- While I’ve only owned this for 2 months I’ve fallen in love. I’ve never really loved lipgloss and my use of it has waned over the years but since buying this I’ve been using other lip glosses as well (I’ve recently been love Smashbox’s Tease but I’ve only owned it a few weeks so it can’t count). It’s a dark red-berry shade with lots of shimmer. It works well alone and over so many different lipsticks.
