Best of 2013 - Beauty Products

Happy New Year everyone! Hope you all had a fantastic start to 2014 and that theme continues for the rest of the year.

I thought before I get into blogging about the usual things, I'll do a round-up of my favourite products for 2013. These aren't products that were released last year, merely things that I loved using in 2013. Without further ado, and in no particular order, here are my favourite 13 beauty products of 2013.

1. Makeup Geek Eyeshadows
These are extremely pigmented, buttery smooth with a fantastic choice of colours. And they won't break the bank, so worth checking out. My full review and swatches are HERE.

2. Australis Longwear Lipsticks
Trendy colours, extra long lasting and budget friendly, what's not to love? Full review HERE.

3. Burt's Bees Almond Butter Hand cream 
This is super rich and creamy, perfect for the driest of hands. Read my review on it HERE.

4. Elizabeth Arden Lash Enhancing Mascara 
I'm normally a drugstore mascara girl, but this one elongates, curls and fattens my lashes like no other. Click HERE for my review. 

5. Sukin Facial Moisturiser
I have fairly dry skin, and this moisturiser manages to hydrate without making my skin oily. Love it. HERE is my full review.

6. Lorac Pro Palette
I can honestly say this is the best neutral palette currently in the market. It has a perfect mix of matte and shimmery eyeshadows, with a very wearable selection of colours. HERE are some looks that I've created with this palette.

7. MAC RiRi Woo
If you're looking for a classic matte red shade that will get you noticed, this is perfect. HERE's my review and swatches.

8. Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse foundation
I've been using this foundation on and off since it was released over 5 years ago. It provides flawless coverage which is also long lasting. HERE's my review and swatches.

9. Max Factor False Lash Effect mascara
Here's another product that I've used on and off for a few years. It makes lashes mega thick, just like falsies. HERE's my review.

10. Australis Curve Ink Eyeliner
This has got to be my favourite liquid eyeliner. The ergonomic design of the handle makes it really easy to do a cat eye, and the colour is a nice deep black which I love. HERE is my review.

11. Make Up For Ever HD Foundation
At first I didn't like this, I tossed it aside for a few months then gave it a try again and it was LOVE. It gives flawless yet invisible coverage that photographs well. HERE is my full review and swatches.

12. Illamasqua Sculpting Duo
This is a fairly recent addition but it's an absolute must have for anyone that likes to contour their face. HERE is my contouring tutorial using this palette.

13. Rouge Bunny Rouge eyeshadows
Having read many posts on RBR I decided to bite the bullet and get a couple to try. And oh my, they are so buttery smooth and so easy to blend, I will need to buy more shades. HERE is my post with full review of these eyeshadows.

There you have it, my top 13 of 2013. What are some of your favourite products of last year?


  1. wow! Beautiful post, my all favs are here!


  2. Lovely post, the MAC lipstick is to die for!


  3. I really want to try the Makeup Geek shadows. I've heard nothing but great things about them. I also totally agree with the Riri Woo, it is quite perfect and should be permanent in my opinion.

  4. Great picks, Lilit. I have to try Illamasqua one day!

  5. Awesome picks Lilit. I haven't tried most of these.
