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...

Revlon ColorBurst Matte & Lacquer Balms-Shamless vs Demure

Recently, the nearest Walgreens had Revlon's newer ColorBurst Matte and Lacquer Balms for 40% off, then with in-store and manufacturer's coupons I ended up paying around $1.50 for each, SCORE! I picked the bold, matte,violet color-Shamless, and the soft, pink, lacquer color-Demure.  Check out which formula was better, the matte or lacquer...

MAC Absolutely It ProLongwear Lip Pencil & Application Tips

For the longest, I avoided lip liners feeling like they were, well... outdated.  However, the more I got into makeup, the more that I understood that lip liners do much more than this:
I am pretty sure this wasn't a look Sandra wore in any seriousness, but we've all seen this on someone at one time or another.  Celebs like Pam Anderson, J. Lo, and Brandi all shared Sandra's company with the obvious lip liner look throughout the 90's.  That look kept me far away from liners until the past couple years when I learned that they are much more.
