Products of the Year: Makeup 2013

Makeup Beauty Products of the Year

First of all we would like to wish all of our readers a very Happy New Year! If you joined us yesterday, or should we say last year!  Then you will have seen the first part of our products of the year post, which saw us gushing over all our favourite skin and haircare picks of 2013.  Today’s part is all about the make-up, so here are our war paint wonders of 2013…

NARS Sheer Glow: My all time favourite foundation.  Applies with a medium coverage, satin finish and lasts all day.  The range has something for every skintone including extremely pale people like myself! I’ve worn nothing else since I first tried it and I’m only on my second bottle, amazing stuff. - S

Revlon Colour Stay: If you’re a regular here on the blog then you will probably be sick of me going on and on about how good this is.  It gives great coverage, feels light, controls oil and last all day.  Just go buy it! - L


Collection Lasting Perfection:
 The concealer of the year has to go to the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer.  Great coverage for blemishes and dark circles and it’s extremely affordable.  We both can’t get enough of the stuff.

Natural Collection Peach Melba:
 Although I do love my high end blushers, the one’s which I’ve been getting the most use out of are these little pots from Natural Collection, in particular Peach Melba.  Great pigmentation and only £1.99 each. - S

MAC Pinch o Peach: I have quite pink cheeks naturally so this gives me just the right amount of glow without being too much.  The formula is great and lasts ages on the skin.  It’s just a really handy everyday blush. - L


Benefit They’re Real:
 I have quite a few mascara favourites but all in all, the winner has to be Benefit They’re Real.  Separates the lashes, adds volume and gets into all those tiny outer corner lashes.  The perfect mascara. - S

Pur Minerals Big Blink: Again, I’ve been blabbing on about this all year, and I’m so happy you can buy it in Marks & Spencers now.  It lengthens, conditions and is the blackest black I’ve tried.  Plus the packaging is really bright too. - L


NARS India Song:
I rarely wear eyeshadow, but when I do it’s always NARS India Song.  The shade is from the Modern Love palette and it’s just the most gorgeous brown shade.  Applies beautifully and stays on all night. - S

Urban Decay Diamond Dog: This is the most beautiful eye shadow I have ever used.  If you want to make a statement with your eye make up then you need this.  A little goes along way too so it will last you forever. - L


Chantecaille Heirloom Rose:
 This year I dove straight into the darker lipstick trend and my most loved shade has to be Heirloom Rose.  Can be worn for a more dramatic look or dabbed lightly onto the lips for a daytime appropriate look.  Such a gorgeous shade and doesn’t require touch ups. - S

Rimmel Nottinghill Nude: For everyday lips I love a good nude, and this is the best I’ve ever tried.  The formula is so nourishing it’s like wearing a balm, and the colour is just the right shade of nude to avoid me looking totally washed out.  This is a great drug store staple. - L

Nail Polish
Nails Inc Baker Street:
 I’ve definitely found a love for Nails Inc polishes this year and once I discovered Baker Street, there was no going back.  The striking cobalt blue shade really stands out and looks amazing on everyone. It’s also one of Beyonce’s favourite shades so if it’s good enough for Beyonce.. - S

Sinful Colours Vacation Time: Not only does this match my lipstick pick perfectly, it’s also one of the most sophisticated polishes I own.  When I need to be a grown up this is what I reach for.  It’s a subtle murky pink, and the formula is so pigmented and long lasting.  These polishes are also really great value for money too. - L

So that is our Products of the Year posts completed, and in just in time so start testing out 2014’s offerings!  What make up picks have you guys loved for the past year?  Once again, Happy New Year and we can’t wait to see what 2014 brings for Beauty Aesthetic!
