Faves from 2013

17 All-Time Faves from 2013

  1. EOS Lip Balm. I got this as a Christmas gift and already I am abusing it to no end! I like the minty flavor and it is very cooling to the lips!
  2. Virginia Olsen Pure Organics Lip Creme Classy Coral. Remember how I first dismissed this frosty shade as something I am not sure if I can pull off? Well, over time I realized I keep on reaching out for this instead of my other lippies! Anything coral is my weakness. Product review and swatches here.
  3. MAC lipstick See Sheer. This is another coral shade that I love! I always get a lot of compliments when I wear this one. Sadly, the end is near for this baby. But hey, look at me finishing off a whole tube of lipstick! That rarely happens!
  4. Girlactick Matte Bronzer Casablanca. Last year I learned how to contour! I never buy my own bronzer for some reasons, but when I received this one I knew it was time to learn the basics! Product review + how to contour post here.
  5. Virginia Olsen Medium Cool Matte foundation. I have always been a silent fan of VO’s foundations. I prefer loose powder than compact ones and I found my perfect match in VO.
  6. Etude House Sweet Recipe Baby Choux Base. Every time I apply this on my face I have to restrain myself from licking the product off my fingers! It smells THAT good! My face feels baby-skin-soft also after application. Product review here.
  7. Nars blush Orgasm. I have already hit the pan for this! I am thinking of buying another one or try their other shades. Whachathink? Product review here.
  8. Shu Uemura POREraser UV Under Base Mousse. Over the past months I have been raving about this gem so it is no wonder I have included it in this list!
  9. Avon Ideal White Liquid Foundation Beige. I am surprised Avon, known for it’s very affordable products, has this foundation that looks luxurious, packaging-wise! It blends perfectly with my skin tone and it feels lightweight, so plus points for that!
  10. Maybelline Hyper Curl Volum’ Express Mascara. No matter what I do, I will always fall back to a Maybelline mascara. For 2012 it was their Magnum Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara.
  11. Benefit Crease-Control Hydrating Concealer Medium. I just got this last December but this is also one of my most abused products as of late. I like how my under-eye instantly brightens up when I use this!
  12. K-Palette Real Lasting Eyebrow pen. I can definitely attest to their “real lasting 24 hour” claim cos even after a long day (which includes sweating it out in the gym), this stays put! Product review here.
  13. NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk. This is a multi-purpose product which I absolutely love! It can be used as a highlighter, eyeshadow base / primer, and of course, as an eye pencil. Dab this on your inner tear duct and it brightens up the eyes as well.
  14. The Body Shop Natrulift Refreshing Eye Roll-On. Note to self this 2014, take extra good care of my eye area! I am hitting 25 already and I do not want to age prematurely! Fortunately, this eye-roll on softens the appearance of wrinkles and targets puffiness.
  15. The Body Shop Seaweed Clarifying Night Treatment. It is a skin-balancing serum with antioxidant algae complex for combination / oily skin. This has also become one of my night beauty staples.
  16. Paula’s Choice Skin Balancing Invisible Finish Moisture Gel. I am particularly choosy with moisturizers, I do not like it too thick or runny cos it feels icky to the face. Good thing this product is none of that.
  17. Virginia Olsen Sculpting Brush. This is the partner-in-crime of my Girlactik bronzer! This brush perfectly does its job in contouring my round face!

That is it for my 2013 wrap-up list! What are your all-time beauty product faves from 2013?
