Before we look towards 2014 beauty just yet, let's reflect on the great products of 2013! I put together a small selection of my go-to beauty products of 2013 covering all aspects of makeup, skincare and haircare. Keep reading to find out or click HERE to watch the video :)

#1 Benefit High Beam
If you had of asked me at the end of 2012 which was my favourite highlighter I would have told you MAC Soft and Gentle MSF without any hesitation. Only a year later and it has now been completely replaced with Benefit High Beam, an amazing pearl based liquid highlighter. This is perfect for a dewy look as it gives such a radiant and youthful glow. Read more about this product in my review HERE.

#2 St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse
St. Tropez completely changed my perception on fake tanning. Before this I have always been anti fake tan because it tends to smell bad, look orange and go streaky but after trying the St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse I am not hooked.
#3 Maybelline Colour Whispers
This was probably my favourite lip line launch of 2013 that occurred halfway through the year and I swiftly snatched every single colour up. I haven't been so excited about a drugstore lip line since the Revlon Lip Butters and these are extremely comparable as they are the same sort of concept.

#4 Girlz Only Dry Shampoo
This is an amazing money saving product because each can is only $2 from Target as opposed to $6 for Batiste. This means that you are able to use as much as you like whenever you need rather than rationing it out.

#5 Lime Crime "Geradium Lipstick"
My favourite lipstick that I own is probably this one because not only is the consistency, packaging and pigmentation amazing but the colour is just fabulous. It's everything that I want in a lipstick so ever since I picked up this baby at Sydney IMATS I have been addicted. Read my review on this lipstick HERE.

#6 Chanel Mat Lumiere Foundation
This is a product that you would expect to find in my yearly favourites because it's something I use year round and most times I use makeup. This is my holy grail foundation that I have used for nearly 4 years now and I can't see myself stopping anytime soon. It's a great full coverage foundation that achieves a completely matte and flawless finish so I would definitely recommend it if that sounds like something you're looking for.

#7 Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi- Purpose Dry Oil
This is a great skincare staple that can be used for a variety of purposes in your hair and on your skin. I like to mix it in with conditioners and moisturisers to lock in extra hydration and beautiful oils.

Hmm I may need to try out that bronzing mousse then ;)
I also agree, I think the Maybelline Colour Whispers were fantastic even though a lot of bloggers didn't like them! xx
