2013 Favourites: Beauty, Skincare & Everything Else.

When it comes to 2013 favourites I never ever know where to start. Like any beauty favourites, something is always missed out and (if you’re me) it’s all put together a little bit last minute. Like first thing in the morning on the 1st January 2014… I actually just got a little shiver writing the date! Anyway, I didn’t fancy doing a video this year on my 2013 favourites, so I thought an express blog post might do the trick? I’ve listed all my favourites below and linked to as many reviews as I can. No sitting through me blabbing on about products you already own or don’t care about, just a quick click and you can read about the ones you do!

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation // Jouer Highlighter in Champagne // Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation // Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencils // Aerin Multi Colour for Lips and Cheeks // Mac Patisserie // Clinique Superfine Liner for Brows // YSL Touch Eclat Concealer // Clarins Instant Smooth Self Tanning Primer // Rimmel Apocalips Lip Laquers // Charlotte Tilbery Uptown Girl Palette

Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm // Nuxe Reve De Miel Lip Balm // Balance Me Radiance Facial Oil // Origins Make A Difference Plus Moisturiser // Origins GinZing Moisturiser // Origins Clear Improvement Mask // Hydraluron

Everything Else
Bumble & Bumble Surf Shampoo & Conditioner // Zooeva Brushes // Seche Vite Topcoat // Barry M Gelly – Lychee // Topshop Polish – Green Room // Nails Inc – Baker Street // Clinique – Black Honey // Korres Perfume in Vanilla, Freesia and Lychee // Real Techniques Buffing Brush // Living Proof Prime Style Extender

Doing this also made me realise the amount of products I own but haven’t reviewed this year, even though I love them. New Years Resolution? I think so…

    Nice stuff :))
    I also like Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, but … Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm – (I tried and reviewed yesterday ) – for me just okey, withou special fascination.
    Happy New Year :))

    Lovely picks! Although I was looking forward to a 2013 video from you, this post has been awesome and has occupied a lot of my time as I've read each review over and over. I really want to try the Korres perfume–except I'm hesitant not knowing what it smells like going in. I'm also a fan of most of the products in this post (you're so convincing and enabling *wink*), but also have added loads to my ever-growing wishlist (Revlon Nearly Naked, Aerin Multi Color, etc). Lovely post, and happy New Year! xo

    I wonder how the Korres Lychee compares to the Fresh Lychee which I own. I need something with a little long lasting power. I also really want to try the Georgio Armani foundation!

    I love your selection of products Suzie. I'm completely loving my Revlon Nearly Naked foundation too. For a natural dewy finish and everyday foundation of choice, I don't have to look elsewhere. And of course I rely on my Real Techniques Buffing Brush to apply it seamlessly onto my skin. 🙂 I still need to get my hands on the Origins Ginzing moisturiser ASAP. It's 2014, get with the times Diane 😀

    Too many great picks here. I've been dying to try GIO Lum. but I don't know if they have my color there. I really need to get Hydraluon but I think it's only sold in the UK 🙁 I can never find it online or anywhere here in the US!
