My Top 10 Beauty Favorites of 2013

Some of you may have noticed that there was no blog hop this weekend, and I do apologize!  With Christmas being on Tuesday, then working the remainder of the week, I had my days all mixed up and realized I forgot the hop when it was too late. So sorry! It'll return this weekend!

Christmas felt like it came and went so fast :( I worked Christmas Eve then went to my sister's for her dinner. This year I convinced her to do an ugly sweater party and it was a blast! I made my sweater, it's a "Hairy Christmas" sweater with a tree made from barbie hair pieces. Ugly!  The hubby cut the sleeves off of an old ugly cardigan I wore to one a few years back, and HE took 3rd place! Men have it so easy :)  All in all it was a great Christmas! Hope your holidays were amazing!!

Now with the New Year fast approaching, I wanted to share a year end roundup of some of my beauty favorites of 2013. There's an extensive list of products I love but I've narrowed it down to 10 products that I've used just about everyday this year, and that I highly recommend. Take a look at my beauty besties of 2013...

Beauty Favorites 2013

  1. eos lip balm- Natural, convenient, nice scents and flavors, moisturizes like a dream and now comes in sticks. $2.99
  2. Clarisonic Pro- My skin is softer, smoother, clearer, cleaner and all around better. The BEST skin care product ever! $225 or try Olay Pro X as a more affordable dupe at $30
  3. Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Liar- Perfect pink brown, creamy, long-lasting $22
  4. Maybelline Colossal Volume Express Cat Eyes Mascara- Lengthens, adds volume, stays put, doesn't flake and grabs every lash. $4.99
  5. Pixi Brightening Peach Correction Concealor- Best ever under eye concealor! It's peachy hue colors blue under eye circles wonderfully leaving you looking more awake. $12
  6. MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation- Gel based formula is med-full coverage and I uses it as my daily foundation because it covers my imperfections nicely $31.00
  7. Wet & Wild Fergie Centerstage Reflect Shimmer Palette in Rose Champagne Glow and Rose Golden Goddess- These are so amazing, and super pigmented. The Golden one warms up the face so nicely and the champagne one is a gorgeous highlight! $5.99
  8. Urban Decay Naked Palette- I got this when it first came out and I still use this just about daily! Great mix of matte and shimmer neural compliment all looks! $52
  9. Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Tropper- So easy to do a quick cat eye or any liner look. It's a felt tip and stays put ALL day! Sephora $18
  10. MAC Fix+- This water spray infused with green tea, chamomile, and cucumber has tons of uses- a moisturizer, setting spray, to foil shadow, to make foundation more sheer spray onto brush first, the list goes on. I love the smell and the feel on my skin. Great stuff! $21
Update: #11- A huge mention to the Real Techniques Stippling brush! I use it daily and love it so much to apply my foundation. Had to add it as #11
