The Best of Beauty 2013 | Face Products

The past two days I've shown you my favourite skincare and haircare products from 2013 but unfortunately I have no favourite bodycare products from last year so now is the time to move onto my favourite subject, makeup!

I've been into makeup since I turned 15 and since then I've become obsessed to say the least, throughout last year I came across so many lovely products so I thought it would be better to pick out one particular favourite from each category, starting with foundation.


Revlon Colorstay Foundation in Ivory

Yes, it is Revlon Colorstay foundation! I've got this foundation in the lightest shade, Ivory for oily skin. Last year I had a love/hate relationship with it as it sometimes stuck in dry areas such but I've never stopped using it for some reason so I must have loved it. It's known for being incredibly similar to the MAC studio fix fluid and I must say I agree, the only con to this foundation is you have to blend it in quick but overall it gives me the perfect amount of coverage.


MAC Skinfinish Natural in Light

I started using this a few months ago, at first I wasn't sure about it but overtime I've started loving it and it's now gained the 'holy grail' status, It's amazing! It keeps my foundation matte without making my face look cakey or washed out, it's really quite incredible, I can't praise it enough. For a full review on this wonderful product, take a look here.


Sleek Blush in Rose Gold

This is such a beautiful blush, it's a peachy/pink shade with shimmer, it makes my cheeks look incredibly healthy. It's more of a summery shade but it's beautiful to wear all year round, by far the best blush I've tried in 2013. To read the full review on the Sleek Rose Gold Blush, take a peek here


Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer

Okay, I admit I wasn't very into concealers until maybe a few months into 2013 but honestly this little beauty is amazing! It has great coverage on my blemishes, it brightens up my under eyes when they're looking tired and it's quite cheap too.
What more do you want from a concealer?

Foundation Primer 

Gosh Velvet Touch Foundation Primer

 This is honestly the one and only primer I've used throughout 2013, its the perfect base for my foundation. When applied, my face feels silky smooth and my foundation glides on effortlessly after applying this primer. For a full review on the Gosh Velvet Touch Foundation Primer, have a look here.


MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Soft and Gentle

I got into highlighters quite late into 2013 and I admit I didn't get this until maybe a month or so ago but since then I've used it every time I do my makeup, it's absolutely amazing. It gives my cheeks a beautiful glow and it's such a beautiful shade too.

Have you tried any of these face products? If so, what are your favourites?
