2013 Favourites

Tomorrow is New Years Eve and it only seems appropriate to post my 2013 favourites today! 2013 was a really good year for me in terms of beauty so I'm really excited to show you 13 of my favourites products! This is going to a long one, sorry in advance!

L'Oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution
I've really gotten into skincare this year and this L'Oreal Micellar water has been my favourite for removing my eye makeup. It dissolves makeup like a dream, it's really lightweight and refreshing to use in the morning or night! I did a review about it already, so you can read that here if you like!

Indeed Labs Hydraluron Moisture Boost
Out of all my skincare products this one has been my absolute favourites! It has really transform my skin, it's helped reduce the dry patches I get and helps my base products sit nicer on my skin. It has a nice gel consistency so it feels really lightweight on the skin and sinks in really quickly. Although it's pricey I will continue to purchase this because it's so goddamn good! It's by far one of my best finds this year!

No7 Beautiful Skin Hot Cloth Cleanser
I've tried a few cleansers out this year and this one has come out on top. I'm on my second bottle of this, it lasts for a good while and you only need the tiniest amount, I can get away with half a pump and still get all my make up off! It's really creamy, hydrating and doesn't leave you skin feeling tight or dried out. It's the only cleanser I've been using for the most part of the year!

Una Brennan Superfacialist Tea Flower Pore Purifying Clay Mask
I love trying out new face masks and this one by Una Brennan is the one that really caught my attention this year! It's an amazing, high street, clay mask that deep cleanses your pores amazingly. I think it's quite comparable to some expensive clay masks! It really helps prevent spots coming through and removes all the dirt from your clog pores. A skin savoir in my eyes!

Clinque High Impact Mascara
As I've said before, I'm too bothered about high end mascaras but this one is incredible! It adds length, volume, it separates to create really beautiful fluttery lashes and lasts all day without smudging.  I also spoke about it here.

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation
I'm not lying when I say I've probably worn this foundation 96% of the year! It's so easy to wear, satin finish, nice light coverage enough to cover redness and actually matches my ghostly complexion. It's not drying, it feels light weight on skin perfect just for an everyday/lazy day foundation. I've just been reaching for this foundation pretty much all year!

Maybelline 24hr Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze
Needless to say that the Colour Tattoo's are incredible and most people love them! They are amazing to use on it's own or as a base under your eyeshadow! It's easy to wear, pigmented and mine hasn't dried out yet! During Spring and Summer I wore On and On Bronze all the time so it seems wrong not to include it in my 2013 favourites!

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey
My tube is a bit battered up but that is only because it is so well loved! Honey is a beautiful neutral pink perfect all year round (I think) and I've been using it pretty much all year too! It leaves a slight glossy finish but then sets as a stain and then lasts pretty much all day. It's been amazing for college and just general long days!

Sleek Face Form Palette in Light
This is the only Sleek product I own but I adore it. I've always hear so much hype about sleek blushes and their contour kit so this little palette is perfect. It really lives up to the hype! I've got so much use out of this and I haven't even made a dent because the pigmentation is amazing! The contour powder is amazing and really suits my pale complexion, I've been so happy with this product over the past year.

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush
I love all the RT brushes but the Expert Face brush is by far my favourite! It blends in base products amazingly, it's great quality and easy to clean. I don't think I could live without this brush and it's the only one I use to blend in foundation!

Soap and Glory Glad Hair Day Shampoo
Most shampoos I use build up in my hair leaving it flaky and itchy (gross I know) but this one has a gel formula so it has no build up! I never thought think of Soap and Glory when it comes to hair products but I really love this stuff, It smells amazing, cleans the hair really well and lasts for ages! Perfect!

L'Oreal EverRiche Nourishing & Taming Conditioner
I picked this up when I saw Estée rave about how good this range was and I've fallen in love with the conditioner! It has done amazing things for my hair, my hair has become so soft and it isn't as dry as it used to be! I found that it takes less time to blow dry since using this. I will continue to repurchase this into 2014!

Aussie Miracle Recharge Moisture Infuser Leave-in Conditioner
I love Aussie hair products and this one stood out to me this year! My hair gets dry very easily especially after straightening/curling my hair so I like to spray this in after I've used heat on my hair just to give it back some moisture. It also helps de-tangle and soften my hair for 2nd or 3rd day hair!

If you made it to the end, congratulations! That's all 13 of my favourite products of 2013!
I hope you all have a good New Years!
