best of 2013: makeup

Saturday, December 28, 2013
 With it being one of the last few days of 2013, I thought I'd do a little mini-series on the best products I've found this year. Today's is makeup and tomorrows is skin/hair care - all of which will include products from both the drugstore and the high street. You'll have probably already guessed my top makeup picks for this year if your read my blog - I seem to rave about them constantly!


First of all is my MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NW10. I love this foundation and it's fastly become my all-time favourite - partly because it's one of the only ones I've found to match my pale skin tone almost perfectly! It's a medium to full coverage foundation and covers my awful freckles and blemishes. It also has an SPF of 15 which is great for the Summer months also.

Collection's Lasting Perfection Concealer is one that I've replaced many a times before and has been my favourite concealer for a few years now. It's one of them where you have about 4 dotted around everywhere because they are so cheap and do the job so good. The only thing I hate, though, is the bottle - the packaging rubs off so easily and they roll everywhere... Down the side of cabinets, behind radiators, everywhere! Another reason why I have so many!

Two of my favourite lipsticks of this year are very very similar. Rebel by MAC was one of the very first bold lipsticks I'd ever tried and I love wearing it all throughout the year. My mum actually got sick of the sight of this because I got so obsessed that I wore it for about 6 days in a row, haha! I also recently got Kate Moss' lipstick in 107, one that's been raved about in the blogosphere for a long time now. This is slightly redder than Rebel and matte but I also love to wear this one too!

I really couldn't resist adding the Naked palette to the top products of this year. Even though it didn't come out this year, I still love it. My favourite combinations are Virgin and Hustle in the outer V. I've also been loving the Collection Eyeshadow Pencils for an easy everyday all over colour. They're very blendable and great also for a base colour.

What's your favourite makeup item of 2013?

  1. Collection's Long lasting concealer is just amazing, I don't think I'll ever splurge on a premium brand as long as this is around :O). Xx

  14. The original Naked Palette is so lovely, I have the Naked 2 which I guess is somewhat similar. I can't help but wonder whether to buy that one too though.
