Beauty Favourites of 2013 – Part 1 (Cosmetics, Skincare & Tools)

Hi everyone,

Today I’ll be showing you the first half of my beauty favourites for 2013. This post will consist of my favourite cosmetics, skincare and tools which have stood the test of time and had me reaching for them throughout the year over other products. I’ve tried to include products that I’ve been using for the better half of a year, though there were some standout products that deserved a spot on this list!






  • Ulta 3 Lipstick in ‘046 Prom Night’. From Pharmacies. I’ve reviewed this product here.
  • Estee Lauder Pure Color Crystal Lipstick in ‘Crystal Baby Creme’. $45.00 from Estee Lauder. I’ve reviewed this product here.
  • The Gloss Bar Lipgloss in ‘Petal’.* $31.00 from The Gloss Bar. I’ve reviewed this product here.
  • Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer in ‘Big Bang’. $12.36 from ASOS.
  • Bourjois Paris Color Boost Glossy Finish Lipstick in ‘Peach on the Beach’. $15.22 from ASOS.




  • Benjabelle Brush Tree in Original. $34.95 from Lipstick Republic .
  • ALL the Real Technique Brushes. Pictured are my ultimate favourites: Buffing Brush, Setting Brush, Deluxe Crease Brush, Blush Brush & Powder Brush. I purchased all my RT brushes from iHerb.







Next week, I’ll be bringing you my Haircare, Body Care and Nails favourites of 2013!

Please let me know if you’d like any of these products reviewed as I will be traveling overseas soon and will be scheduling my posts!
