Without further ado, my top five makeup essentials of 2013.
Oh my goodness how great is this product. I have never found a better eye primer. You only have to use a very tiny bit so it’s worth kicking in the extra few dollars. I’ve had this tube for 2 months and still have plenty left. If you don’t remove your eye makeup, you will wake up with it on the next day. Not saying I’ve done that or anything…cough. Also I want to a water park for new years eve and my eye makeup stayed on the entire time. I think it even impressed my friends. Highly recommend giving it a go!
I’ve always been a fan of trying new eyeliners but I never really found one that I like. I rediscovered an old Clinique eyeliner in my drawer, so I decided to test out a new one. I instantly fell in love. I love this because it sweeps on so easily. It doesn’t look too thick on the eye and lasts all day. It’s also nice because it has a smudge part on one end of the pencil.
I’m guessing a lot of beauty bloggers will have this in their favorite of 2013. This lip balm is seriously the best that I have ever owned. It goes on easily and lasts all day. It also makes your lips feel buttery. It does what it is supposed to outstandingly, which you can’t say for all lip balms.
Here, I’ll throw two Maybelline products at you in a row. I consider this to be an eyeshadow but it is purely pigment. I’ve had a few days where I put a matte shadow on and then this on top of it. I love how long it lasts in a day and I absolutely adore the look of it. It is small enough to bring with you, which is always good. I would love for Maybelline to come out with more neutral shades of this because I would be all over that. My Number Five: Urban Decay’s Naked 3 Palette
Oh my God, am I in love with this palette. This is seriously a product I lusted after until I could get my hands on it. The colors in the palette are rose based and it is right up my alley. You hardly need any shadow on your brush when you’re applying this. All of the colors come out beautifully and it is now my go to eye shadow. I have been very strongly considering buying the first two palettes in the Naked collection. If you can only get one eye makeup product, it’s this.
