Favorites of 2013

As the year is over, I have some of my favorite products from 2013. Most of these were purchased this year because I tried to pick products that are still new to the market. I don't usually do monthly favorites because I rotate my makeup so much but here are 7 products I would highly recommend.

1) Lioele Waterdrop BB Cream
This BB cream is amazing! It feels so refreshing on the face and not cakey at all. The coverage is still pretty light but I find it gaves an amazing even canvas.

2) Dinoplatz Guggenosaurus Concealer
I bought this in HK on one of my last days. This has serious coverage and it blends really naturally. I believe it's a korean brand. And this concealer even has SPF!

3) Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Eyepencils
This product has been out for a while but I only started using it this year. I love how creamy and black this eyeliner is. And it glides on the lids beautiful. I enjoy using this for both my upper lash line and my water line! I can't say that about many other eye liners.

4) Benefit They're Real Mascara
A cult favorite on the online beauty community. I got this in the birthday gift and I was intimidated by the brush at first. But oh my goodness, this mascara gives insane length and makes me feel like I'm wearing falsies!

5) ELF Glossy Gloss in Ballet Slippers
I realized I should include more affordable options on this list and at $3 this definitely fits the bill. I love how plushy and thick this gloss is. It also smells nice and is once of the first nude lip glosses that actually looks nude on my lips.

6) Bite Lip Pencil in Rhubarb
I recently got this in my Sephora Gimme Some Lips kit. I've only used it a couple times but it's the best MLBB shade ever! There's no shine to this so it literally looks like your lips but with a better color to it.

7) YSL Rouge Volupte Sheer in #5
One of my biggest splurges this year! But worth every penny. I love the color, the scent, the formula and especially the luxurious packaging!

What are your favorite products of 2013? Have you tried any items on my list?


  1. great reviews!
    love the YSL lipstick!
    following, kisses x

  2. ah that YSL lipstick has the best packaging ever! they are on my wishlist <3 do you have a review post on this shade? :)

    1. I will try and post some swatches soon! I've been meaning to do it since I got it last year! Whoops :P

  3. I'm using that Benefit mascara as well and it does give good length, but do you find that it weighs your lashes down after awhile? I always curl my lashes and an hour or two later while wearing this mascara, you can't tell that they're curled at all!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Always fun to find another Vancouver blogger :)

    1. It doesn't weigh down but I find it gets really crunchy!!

  4. Thanks for coming by my blog! I also love the ysl lipsticks! They are so moisturizing and pretty!

  5. That YSL lipstick is to die for! :P
    Great blog, keep it up! :D
    Elephant stories and more

  6. I got that Sephora BITE kit too and love it! I swear BITE lip products actually improve my lips over time! I also have a YSL Volupte Sheer too, those are great stuff ;)

  7. Love those lip colours! Very pretty.
