Everyone else seems to be posting these favourites of the year 2013, so why not take a closer look what the year 2013 had to offer in cosmetic-wise! I didn't haul that much new makeup items but still managed to find a few gems! But let's start with skin care.
Mangos! I've been loving the Mango series from The Body Shop. A lot! The Mango Whip Body Lotion is my favourite, but it now retails here in Finland for 16,50€, that is just crazy for such a small bottle! I had to stop buying it, I'm in tears. The Mango Body Mist that I got in the summer is now almost gone. I do have a new Body Butter, it's also lovely.
I'm so happy I went back to my loved Mádara skin care routine. One of the best part of my routine is this Deep Moisture Gel. It feels super light and absorbs quickly but it's still moisturizing enough. I believe that my routine has helped me with my acne and helps with my oily skin too. And it's certified natural cosmetics, I don't think I will be going back to regular products anymore.
I have to include one hair favourite too! I have long hair that is getting quite dry at the ends. This Bonacure Oil Miracle Light Finishing Treatment has really helped me, it absorbs quickly and you don't need a lot to give your hair nice shine and a healthier look. I use it on damp hair, and after I use my straightener I then add a little drop, it makes my ends softer and shinier looking. Great stuff :)
The Nude Magique BB Powder from L'Oreal was one of the most loved new makeup items in 2013. I just actually repurchased this yet again. It really is just so smooth and lovely. Read my full review here!
I'm also happy that I finally this year went back to Urban Decay De-slick In A Tube Mattifying Gel. I have tried so many primers hoping they would help me with my oily skin and keep my makeup from melting, but this is the only one that helps me. It doesn't take the problem away, but it helps a little, and that makes me happy. Read my original review here.
Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Coral Queen was my most used lip product in the year 2013. I have never been a fan of bright lips but last summer changed it all! I wore this coral lipstick through the summer, fall and early winter. It is such a lovely color and a lovely product. My review here.
A new mascara favourite was also found in the late 2013. I was surprised with the 2000 Calorie Waterproof Volume mascara from Max Factor. I will buy it again! See the full review here.
These were my new favourites from the year 2013. I wish I could have included a blush favourite, but I didn't buy any new blushes that would have reached the level of a favourite. I used a lot of my old blushes and now most of them are showing pan, so I really want to start filling up my blush collection again soon.
I wish you all the best, health and happiness for the year 2014!
