I can’t believe how fast 2013 went. It seems like it was only yesterday I was sharing with you all my beauty favorites of 2012 and now it’s time for me to reflect on what my top beauty favorites were from 2013. That’s a hard one for me because I usually end up with a lot of favorites and if you know me well I have a lot! So today I decide to sit down and think about what were the top 10 things I grabbed for the most in 2013? And what I mean beauty items I was obsessed with on a day by day basis.
If you don’t own one you should make that your 2014 goal to get one in order to improve your skin! The What I love about the Clarisonic cleansing system is that is cleanses your make-up 6 times better than washing with a wash towel or your hands resulting in clearer pores, reduced pores size, and your favorite skincare absorbing in the skin much better!! As a result you will have healthier glowing skin!!
The next thing I grab for is my favorite cleanser which was the Shiseido Benefiance creamy cleanser!! This beauty deep cleanses your skin with such rich lather without leaving your skin feeling dry and taught.If anything with using the clarisonic with the shiseido my skin feels so smooth and soft to the touch! I am dying to run out!
Yes!! I am seeing signs of aging on my 37 year old skin and that is why I am loving Peter Thomas Roth’ Un-Wrinkle Turbo! I mainly use it on my forehead due to the fact that I am very expressive which causes the horizontal wrinkles in that area. Boooooo! If you are suffering from major expression lines on the face this one I highly recommend using! This product is formulated with18 potent antiaging neuropeptides and peptides at 72 percent includes the original Un-Wrinkle® blend at 23 percent and now turbo-charged with an additional 49 percent. Can you say and bottle filled with pure awesomeness!!
Yes.. I fell on the oil bandwagon last year and I am glad that I did! My skintype is combo/oily in most cases and when I used this for the first time last year I was so impressed! For some reason this product balanced out my oil production making my skin less oily in areas along with leaving me with a healthy glow and soft skin. I also love the fact that this is a multitasking product. Josie Maran states that this product can be used on the ends of the hair, cuticles and anywhere on the body which is so fab! Glowing skin everywhere, lol!
When it comes to complexion products I reached for my kat von d concealer! When I have blemishes, dark circles under the eyes from working too hard or spending too much time on the computer I love reaching for this concealer! It’s action packed with coverage without giving me that cake face look. This concealer is oil free, transfer and water resistant leaving you with a flawless look!! You can only find this product exclusively at Sephora!
In order to finish my flawless look I reach for this powder consistently. I look that smooth skin like finished I got from this powder. I also like the fact that this powder can be used wet or dry. Now… I mean you can literally wet the powder directly in the pan and the powder will dry back to normal. I thought that was so cool! I also like that when I used it wet I got almost satiny finish. Must try if you are lucky to find the right tone, for this foundation can be a little too yellow or red for deeper skin tones. As a result, I really recommend visiting Sephora to get color matched on this one.
The naked palette became my go to for the busy days of 2013. When I needed to get ready quickly for work everyday this palette was the perfect fit! Since my skin tone is deeper and yellow the undertones worked perfectly for me. I also loved it when I traveled in this past year!! All of the colors I needed are in this palette and I love the fact that I can easily transition from a daytime look to a night time like in seconds!! Now….I know you are probably going to ask.. what about the naked 2 and naked 3?? I will come it with a comparison swatch very soon and let you know how they work on my skin tone too!
For cheeks, I LOVE Tarte’s tipsy blush. First of all this blush is formulated with amazonian clay which minimizes oil in and around pores to balance skin and it keeps the product in place. As a result leaving it on your skin for 12 hours!! I love not having to touch up my blush during the day time!! In addition to that this beauty give me such a warm glow!! Definitely a must have!! Spring is right around the corner!
Ok… this was my holy grail of long wear lip colors of 2013!! First of all I love how this neutral warm tone looked against my skin and to top that off this color stayed on my lips all day long! I literally had to use the make up for ever eye make up remover to take it off at night!! Now.. I will say if you do not like matte lip products this one is not for you today! However, if you do totally give this one a try!!
For a good smell good. I was in love with the Ralph Lauren Pony 2 fragrance! It’s has a beautifully soft, sweet scent that is playful and flirty at the same time!! I used this one throughout the entire summer months. I swear I ended up purchasing two bottles in 2013!! If you would love to know the specific notes they are as follows: Cranberry, Tonka Mousse.
I am sure I could list more things and that would take a lifetime, lol. I hope that you enjoyed my 10 favorites and I am curious to know what yours are!! Please share by commenting below!! Until next time have a fabulous day!
