My Top 13 of 2013 - Featuring Beauty & Nail Favourites

My Top 13 of 2013
Another year has past and it's been another great year for discovering new products and re-discovering old products! Here's my 2013 round up of my Top 13 Beauty & Nail Products.

I hope everyone has a Healthy, Happy, Beautiful 2014! 

1. Victoria's Secret Fragrance Mist - I was so excited for the arrival of two Victoria's Secret stores to land in the UK as I am a big fan of everything in there especially there Body Spray's and Lotion's so to my excitement I can now pick up the most gorgeous smelling scents to douse myself in and feel like a VS Angel!

2. Bare Minerals Original Foundation - This is one of my all time favourite Foundation's which I first discovered on QVCUK, it is a powder foundation that you buff into the skin, it gives me a flawless complexion, hides any imperfections, is natural and has a dewy finish that makes my skin glow whenever I wear it.

3. Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette - This has been my most used palette this year, I just love how you can use it for day or night looks and you can go as natural or as dark as you want, the colours are so versatile.

4. Maybelline Color Tattoo - Maybelline are fast becoming my all time drugstore brand, they have come out with some great releases this year alone and my favourite coloured eye primer by far is my ever growing selection of Color Tattoo's, these out do my Bobbi Brown Long Wear Eyeshadow's by a mile! I love them because they are affordable, have a great colour selection, last all day, don't crease and they look amazing under any complimenting eye shadow.

5. Loreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution - I am yet to try the famous Bioderma as one thing that has always put me of is the price. Over the past year the drugstore has cottoned onto the micellar hype and in it's path followed many great dupes for Bioderma. I discovered the Loreal version, which has become a staple to my night time skincare routine and it's affordable too.

6. Maybelline Mega Plush Mascara - I first saw this in the YouTube Beauty community some loved it some hated it, but I think sometimes you have to give a go yourself to really know if it suits you or not, thankfully I love this mascara and cannot live without it's very similar to Lancome Hypnose Drama but with a more purse friendly price tag! I think this is actually better than Lancome's and I actually think Maybelline Mascara's in general are hard to beat.

7. Gucci Rush Perfume - A nostalgic classic I used to wear as a teenager, this was my signature going out scent and a perfume I have fallen back in love with, it's deep, lasts & makes me feel expensive!

8. MAC Rebel Lipstick - As mentioned in my December Favourites I finally found the confidence to wear a dark lip and this has been my go to lipstick staple for the Fall and Winter.

9. Essie Naughty Nautical - One of my favourite colours of the Summer, Naughty Nautical is a pretty turquoise green with a hint of subtle sparkle and was my most worn polish of the year.
10. The Body Shop Shea Body Butter - One of my all time favourite moisturisers I like to use at night, the Shea smells divine, luxurious and leaves your skin super smooth, I do advise using these body butters at night though as they are pretty thick and oily, but nevertheless gorgeous!

11. O.P.I - Lights to Emerald City - I loved this quirky glitter filled with iridescent sparkle & white squares, it looked beautiful on top of any polish, such a beautiful mix.

12. Maybelline Baby Lips - Another genius product from Maybelline, they look great in your bag or on your vanity, come in lots of different flavours and moisturise & protect the lips with some of them giving a lovely wash of colour.

13. Benefit Hervana - This blusher is my go to blusher, it suits any look and skin tone and is the perfect mix of pink, peach and neutral, it's just an all round amazing universal blush, I love it!
