My Favorite Beauty Products of 2013


I'd love to hear what your favorite products of 2013 were. Here are my top beauty picks.

Monday December 30 2013


Wow, where did this year go?! I never did a yearly favorites post before, but I’m not sure why. Let’s just jump right in! Here are my most highly recommended beauty products of 2013!

Katy Perry Killer Queen


I purchased Killer Queen when it first came out in September and I love it! Every time I wear it, both men and women tell me I smell good. (Even my grandmother.)

Laura Geller Spackle Primer

LG Spackle

Spackle was without a doubt, my go-to face primer this entire year. My particular favorites are Champagne and Bronze. Check out my full review for me details.

Beauty Blender


I received my very first beauty blender in a Birchbox about 2 years ago. I stopped using it for awhile, but this year I rediscovered this product and once again fell in love. It’s hard to bring yourself to buy this pricey sponge, but it’s absolutely worth it because other sponges do not compare.

Too Faced Better Than Sex

Better Than Sex Mascara

I’ve always been very happy with drug store mascaras especially Maybelline ones. On a whim, I purchased Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara and have been using it pretty much every day for 4 or 5 months now. I love how it lengthens and doesn’t get clumpy. For not being waterproof, it also stays on pretty well.

MakeUp ForEver High Definition Foundation

Mufe HD Foundation

I first purchased this around Easter because I wanted something a little better than the Studio Gear Matte foundation I had been using and I’ve been using this ever since. Make Up For Ever’s HD Foundation gives great coverage yet is very light. It is not thick or cakey at all! While this is on the more expensive side, one bottle lasts me at least 6 months and that’s using it probably 6 days a week. I just recently had to purchase my 2nd bottle.

Lime Crime Retrofuturist
and Maybelline Color Elixir Vision In Violet

Favorite LimeCrime

This year I was drawn to bold lips and my absolute favorite product has been Lime Crime Retrofuturist. It is a gorgeous bright matte red. It’s a long-lasting statement color that looks fantastic with my red hair.

Color Elixir Violet

This is a recent favorite that I didn’t even do a full review on yet. It’s one of the new Maybelline Elixir lip glosses. I just love this color and it’s super pigmented for a gloss. I didn’t know I’d love purple lips, but I do.

Benefit Watt’s Up

Watts Up

Last, but not least…Watt’s Up! quickly became a holy grail item for me in 2013. I use it everyday for a dewy glow. It’s amazing how much better a highlighter like this can make your entire face look. My first Watt’s Up is just about used up and I will definitely be purchasing it again.
