2013 Beauty Favourites ♥

Hey girlie's!!!

As we are nearing the end of 2013 I thought I'd do a little round up of a few beauty products that have become either favourites of mine or staple products that I repurchase over and over and cant live without. I could of put silly amounts of products in this post as I really have loved alot of products in 2013 but here are the handful I have chosen....  

Real Techniques Brushes
Firstly I have to start with my beloved Real Techniques Brushes, without them I'm sure my makeup would look a horrible cakey mess ha ha. My collection started off with the famous 'Buffing Brush' and ever since then I've never turned back and over the past year I have tried to collect as many of the brushes as possible, yup I love them that much! They honestly do make a huge difference in the way your makeup looks and feels, everything just looks so flawless and I'm sure I'll be loving each and every brush throughout 2014 too.

SesatioNail Gel Nails
I first got introduced to SensatioNail back in September and ever since I've been addicted. Its basically a brilliant little kit that allows you to do gel manicures and pedicures yourself in the comfort of your own home, and can last up to 2 weeks without chipping, amazing right!!! I have literally used this kit constantly and would highly recommend it to any one who is really into their nails, you could also save yourself a lot of money in the long run if your a gelish lover.

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
I honestly could never live without this concealer now, I've repurchased it countless amount of times and will continue too!!! It's the best drugstore concealer you will ever come across, its so creamy making it easy to blend and work with, it provides full coverage without looking cakey, it also covers blemishes and dark under eye circles superbly. Another little use for this concealer is that it helps conceal and fill pores really well too, brilliant!!! For £4.19 you really cant go wrong. The only downside is the packaging quality, as you can see from my picture the writing has completely rubbed off and it does that every time I buy one within a week, but apart from that I love it!!! 

Cocoa Brown Tan
I must admit I was never ever a fake tan lover until I started using Cocoa Brown Tan, I always thought it was too much hassle, unpredictable and hardly ever natural looking for me, but now whenever I want a natural glow I can have one within an hour, that doesn't smell like biscuits, that isn't orange looking and lasts me around 5 days. If you'd like to know more about Cocoa Brown Tan feel free to check out my review here, it features before and after pictures too.

MUA Matte Lipsticks
It's no surprise really that something from MUA would make it into my 2013 beauty favourites, to be honest throughout this year I've been really impressed with MUA as a brand, they have launched some awesome products and everything I've tried from them this year I've loved included these two matte lipsticks in Wild Berry and Scarlet Siren. The quality of these matte lipsticks is incredible and the fact they are only £1.00 is incredible, I have been addicted to Wild Berry, so much so that I'm on my second lipstick and Scarlet Siren has been my go to lipstick during December, its such a gorgeous festive bright red. You can check out my full review of both these matte lippy's here.

Urban Decay 'Naked' Palette
As you can see my poor Naked palette is battered and bruised and has been well loved for the last couple of years. The quality or each eyeshadow is incredible and the shade range is beautiful. It's the only palette that I constantly go back too and definitely couldn't ever be without.

Collection Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip Liner
For years liquid liner is something I've always struggled to master, until this year when I thought id give Collection's Extreme Liner a go. To be honest I wasn't expecting anything too impressive and the fact I've always struggled with precision and application of liquid liner made me think this would be another fail, but NOOOO, the first time I used this liquid liner it was honestly like I was a pro, it literally took me seconds to create precise straight liners and even flicks/wings and since then I've been addicted to this liner. 

And there you have it, a few products that really have made an impact on me during 2013.

What have your beauty favourites been during 2013??? Leave me you links if you've done a similar post as id love to read it.
