2013 Beauty Favourites

** Sorry about the quality of the pictures. Insya Allah will update it as soon as I can with better ones. 

2013 is coming to an end. I'm discovering plenty of beauty products this year. Most of the products are cult products recommended by beauty bloggers and alike. For skincare, I have written products that I'm currently using and loving it for what it does to my skin [here]. On the other hand, for make up I found myself to love lip products more than blushes and face products. And now, I know which shade I prefer and will get a lot of use. Buying beauty products online is tricky (and risky!) so I read a lot of reviews before deciding. Below are the products that I have use a lot this year and been through tests to be able to be in this list.

  1. Love that Healthy Mix made it to your list, I'm slowly going through mine because I'm scared it will run out! Wish Malaysia would bring Bourjois in already! :)

    1. Same here! That's why I bought Revlon foundation recently. The not so good news is Bourjois does not have Healthy Mix anymore. In fact, they have reformulated the original Healthy Mix foundation. I'm trying that one next to see how it compares :) Glad ASOS offers free worldwide shipping to get my Bourjo fix! Teehee! ;)

    2. Oh, I just saw the new one on asos! Reformulated..hmm. Will have to see whether it's better. Right now I'm telling myself to be good and no more foundation/base products until I finish up at least one bottle! 2013 was definitely a year of stocking up on base products. -_-"
