2013 Favorite Beauty Products

2013 beauty favorites
Hi girls,
2013 was the year I started blogging, I actually started posting in January, so this month I celebrate one year of blogging...I hope I can manage to do an anniversary giveaway soon. Don't forget to follow me if you want to win!
 Till then, without much introduction, here are my favorite beauty products of 2013:

FACE MOISTURIZER


LA ROCHE-POSAY HYDRAPHASE INTENSE LEGERE - review HERE
LA ROCHE-POSAY HYDRAPHASE INTENSE LEGERE

It is my favorite face moisturizer, it doesn't leave my face greasy and it offers intense hydration.

SUNSCREEN PROTECTION

VICHY CAPITAL SOLEIL SPF30

I really liked this sunscreen, it smells lovely, doesn't leave my skin greasy and I didn't experience any burnout if applied properly.
 
CONCEALER 

L'OREAL PARIS LA TOUCHE MAGIQUE ACCORD PARFAIT

I love L'Oreal Paris La Touche Magique, it is my favorite concealer! I like its formula and also like the soft brush applicator. I will surely repurchase this!

BRONZER
TOO FACED CHOCOLATE SOLEIL BRONZER

It is my favorite beauty product and it is perfect for contouring or for achieving that sun-kissed look.
 
EYE SHADOW
MAYBELLINE COLOR TATTOO - 'On and On Bronze'

The winner is Maybelline Color Tattoo 'On and On Bronze'! It lasts all day, the texture is lovely, really soft, and the color is GORGEOUS! I'm in love!

MASCARA


MAX FACTOR - FALSE LASH EFFECT

This is one mascara that I've been loving a lot and I've just realized I hadn't done a review, but I promise I will. It offers great volume to my lashes, lengthens them and does not crumble.

EYELINER 
CLINIQUE CREAM SHAPER FOR EYES - 'BLACK DIAMOND'

It is long lasting, resistent, does not smudge and it has tiny sparkles. The colour is a grayish black, really nice.

FOUNDATION
REVLON NEARLY NAKED FOUNDATION

I don't like full coverage foundations, this one has light/medium coverage and is perfect for a natural beautiful look, if you don't have major skin issues. Not too matte, nor too shiny, it's somewhere in between.

HIGHLIGHTER
BENEFIT WATT'S UP

A beautiful light champagne colour, it is creamy, subtle and lasts all day.

LIPSTICK
I have two favorites:
L'OREAL SHINE CARESSE EVE

L'Oreal Shine Caresse 'Eve' is a sheer lipstick with a lovely colour, it has an almost watery consistency and sinks into the skin giving a long-lasting result. Not sticky at all and not drying.

REVLON JUST BITTEN LIPSTAIN
I wore Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain all the summer, it was the product which looked best with my tanned skin. It is long lasting, not drying, easy to apply and has a minty scent.

LIP PENCIL
MAC SOAR LIP PENCIL
It is the only MAC lip liner I've own and I must say the quality is really good: creamy and highly pigmented.
 
BB CREAM
LA ROCHE-POSAY HYDREANE BB CREME
I only tried two BB creams, this one and another one from L'Oreal but I find La Roche-Posay Hydreanne BB Cream creamier/softer, which I like. It can be a little shiny especially on an oily skin, I usually remove the shine with a blotting tissue on my forehead and my nose.
 
CLEANSER

BIODERMA SENSIBIO H2O MICELLAR SOLUTION
No need to comment on this, everyone knows it's the best!

L'OREAL MICELLAR CLEANSING WATER

It is a really nice micellar water, I have bought it many times, it is my daily cleansing product cause it removes make up without rubbing and soothes skin.

FACIAL SCRUB

L'OREAL TRIPLE ACTIVE VIVIFYING SCRUB
- review HERE
L'OREAL TRIPLE ACTIVE VIVIFYING SCRUB
It is a gentle apricot scrub which smells nice and fresh and it's not harsh to the skin. I think I will buy it again soon cause it's almost finished.

BEST FACE MASK
TONY MOLY - PURENESS 100 HYALURONIC ACID MASK SHEET HYDRATING
A really hydrating sheet mask! I felt the hydration through all my pores, I would purchase it again.

HAIR TREATMENT
MOROCCANOIL TREATMENT Moroccanoil is a wonderful treatment for hair! The smell is great and long lasting. Shame it's too expensive.
 
HAIR MASQUE
MACADAMIA NATURAL OIL DEEP REPAIR MASQUE
Macadamia Deep Repair Masque is another lovely treatment for my bleached hair and the smell is lovely. I want to buy it in full size (I only had a sachet).
 
HAIR BRUSHES
JOHN FRIEDA PADDLE BRUSH
I'm in love with this brush! I use it to straighten my hair when I don't use my Remington Shine Therapy Straightener. Here's a short description for you to understand why I love it so much: 'Deep-shine silicone bristles create shine, smooth flyaway hair and help reduce frizz. Silicone lasts for the life of the product. Tourmaline - 100% crushed gemstones release natural IONS for intense shine. IONS help flatten hair's cuticle layer, leaving hair looking shiny and reducing frizz. Flexible cushion base allows you to gently untangle wet or dry hair.'

TANGLE TEEZER ORIGINAL
Tangle Teezer is a great brush for detangling hair, it detangles without ANY pain! It has soft bristles which bend when you brush your hair and it manages to detangle the hair without pain. Really useful for my daughter too, she can't stand to comb her hair but she loves this! A MUST especially for moms with little daughters.
 
LIP BALM

VICHY AQUALIA THERMAL SOOTHING & REPAIR BALM
I used three lip balms in 2013 and this one is the winner. It moisturizes my lips really well!
 
ANTIPERSPIRANT

DOVE INVISIBLE DRY
I've used this for years and still like it.

HAND CREAM
URIAGE BARIEDERM ONGUENT
An extremely good barrier ointment for dry/cracked/painful skin. I used it recently for my cracked skin on my hands and I noticed really QUICK improvement! Really good! But expensive.

FRAGRANCE

LANCOME - LA VIE EST BELLE  (EAU DE PARFUME)                                                  
LANCOME - LA VIE EST BELLE
This is a gorgeous fragrance, fruity, sweet and strong, therefore I try to apply just a tiny amount.The key ingredient is iris, followed by orange blossom and jasmine. The composition's opening provides fruity flavors of black currant and pear, while the base is warm and powdery.  Julia Roberts is the face of  La Vie Est Belle campaign and the formula is the result achieved after 3 years of probation and 5000 versions.

Have you tried these products? What do you think of them?

  1. Ce frumos ti-ai prezentat favoritele! Si ce multe sunt!!!! Eu am incercat atatea produse cosmetice in 2013, cat pentru mai multi ani la un loc :) Unele nu s-au epuizat inca, altele isi asteapta randul la "test". In orice caz, am avut norocul sa folosesc produse de calitate de la LA ROCHE POSAY, Avene, Nivea, Bourjois, Anian, No7 si cate altele :)

    1. Multumesc, Nadia! Mai erau cateva, dar efectiv nu mai puteam! La suprafata nu pare asa mult de lucru, dar sunt si multe dedesubturi bune pentru SEO...if you know what I mean:) As fi trecut pe lista si lotiunea micelara L'Oreal, sampoane, geluri de dus etc. Pupici

  25. I have tried the Dove stick but I'd really like to try the Max Factor mascara. I've been searching for the perfect one (of course, no chance) but at least I can try it. Also, Bioderma products seem appropriate to me. This is a very helpful post!
