My Favourite Beauty Products of 2013

a whole year passed by and i can not believe how fast. for me that means one year of blogging is over which is crazy and i want to thank anyone that joined me on that journey but more on that later. 12 months passing by means alot of favourites that i had and now i want to sum them up in this little post. i also have a video currently uploading but it literally takes for ever and i’m trying for 2 days and there are still 300 minutes left. i want to die and smash my wlan rooter. but anyway, lets do the favourites.

so in terms of make up/face products there three babies have been my favourites. i fell in love with the wake me up foundation by rimmel around last year. it has such great coverage, adds a radiant glow and just a lovely dewy look. its awesome and because i can’t get in germany, i stocked up when i went to denmark and sweden and i will when i’m back there in april and may. i can not wait. more on the higher end there has been my beloved mac studio sculpt. high coverage but it still gives a “skin” look. its perfection and so worth the money. it makes my face look perfect and i can’t live without it.
for cheeks and contouring, i loved the nars duo in orgasm and laguna. expensive but so awesome. laguna is the best thing so sculpt your face and orgasm adds the perfect glow to the cheeks. i just love it.

for the eyes, i loved the first naked palette. i recently got the second but for the most time of the year, i used the first and loved it so much. the colors are so warm and richly pigmented. i can create tons of looks with it and i never get bored. urban decay palettes are just flawless and i want them to do alot more. for a more simple look, i loved the color tattoos which are really like paint pots. perfect as a base and on its own. permanent taupe, on and on bronze and pink gold have been my ultimate favourites. so worth trying.

in terms of mascara i have been loving the benefit they’re real mascara. its awesome and yes, it is expensive and everyone raves about it but it really is that awesome and makes my lashes look great. the maybelline rocket mascara was the one maybelline mascara i always came back to. it always makes my lashes great looking. its adds just the right amount of volume and lengh. its great.
for my hair, the only thing that really stood out for me has been the tangle teezer. my hair gets knotty so easily and it just lets detangle my hair without alot of pain and so easily. its the best thing i got for my hair so far.

i think i mentioned this in tons of posts but i tried to build up a skincare routine for myself and here are my best skincare friends. first off, the tea tree line by the body shop. the foaming cleanser and the toner are my favs. the cleanser is so gentle and really removes all the dirt and make up from my face and the toner is just as awesome. my skin looks so much better now and i can’t live without them. my skin is quite dry, so i have been using the drink up intensive mask by origins at least once a week. it leaves my skin so great looking without any dry patches. best mask ever.

so, i saved the best. my favourite lipsticks. first off all, 01 out of the kate moss line for rimmel. its so smooth and pigmented and literally stays on all day. best drugstore lipstick i’ve ever tried. so, i know mac lipsticks are on the more pricey side but i just love them. for an every day look coral bliss has been the best. its a creme sheen and soooo smooth and perfect and off course, russian red. the perfect red. the blue undertones make my teeth look so white. its awesome.

thats it. my favourite beauty products of 2013. again, thank you so much for following me and supporting me. i just love you alot.
