2013 Favourites | Beauty & Non-beauty

Lush Sweetie Pie Shower Jelly | LINK | Review | £3.25
Shower Jelly is definitely one of those products from Lush that I will repeated buy over and over again. Not only because it's different but it's also amazingly usable; not just a gimmick product.  I can use it as a shower gel as well as shampoo. I actually love using it as both, it works great for my hair because it doesn't dry out my scalp. Did I mentioned that it smells beautiful. Just like The Comfortor Bubble Bar.

Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Liner in Black Ink | LINK | Review | £17.50
This product might not have been love at first use for me but that's not to say that it's not good. Since I have been using it pretty much everyday. I'm starting to love it. If you wait for it dry, it doesn't smudge at all. I also love how easy it is to apply. 

Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler | LINK | Review | £20
Honestly, I can not live with this product. My lashes are non-existent without this. If you have Asian lashes that short and point downwards like mine. Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler will be your saviour. With this Eyelash Curler, my lashes stay curled all day and all night.

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette | LINK | Review | £37
The best palette for travel as the packaging is very sturdy. It's great for everyday wear as it contains very neutral shades that are on the taupe-tones. However, it also contains one matt black shade which means that you can also create a lovely smokey look. Perfect every occasion. 

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette | LINK | £37
Okay, I know that maybe this palette shouldn't really be here yet since I only just bought this in December but so far, I haven't been able to stop looking at it and using it. Even if you don't think you will like rose-hued shades (because I didn't, I got swept up on the hype) but I freaking love it. I think it looks great with every skin tone.

Maybelline The Falsies Waterproof | LINK | Review | £7.99
My favourite mascara for 2013, even though, I spent the majority of the year loving They're Real mascara. I still don't think that high-end mascara can compare to the drugstore's ones. I love the wand of The Falsies as it separates my lashes very well. 

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation | LINK | Review | £10.99
I know I haven't shut up about this foundation at all this year but hand on heart this is the best foundation I have ever tried. It looks very natural on, it never looks cakey, ever. I love the dewy finish. It is even better than the foundations from MAC.

MAC Candy Yum Yum Lipstick | LINK | Review | £15
The brightest lip colour I own and definitely the most eye catching. It might looks slightly scary in the tube but it is a lot more wearable than it looks. It is extremely long lasting too. 

YSL Rouge Volupté Shine in Fuchsia in Rage | LINK | Review | £24
The most beautiful of all packing in the land. The product itself does not disappoint either. It's not just a pretty face with YSL and every girl needs to own one.

Stila Convertible Lip and Cheek Trio in Cool (not pictured) | LINK | Review | £23
I have not stopped using this palette since I bought it. Every shades in there just give the most natural healthy glow. I love the dewy looking blush and this is perfect. I love using it with a Real Technique stippling brush but it still works great with your fingers. 

The Body Shop Ginger Sparkle Body Butter | LINK | Review | £5
The best smelling body butter in town. It's not just amazing around Christmas time but all year round. Unfortunately, you can only pick them up around Christmas time. This year I have stocked up 3 tubs because I love moisturising myself with this little beau. 

Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask | LINK | Review | £22
I just reviewed this recently and I've already mentioned how it has my Holy Grail stamp of approval. I can't live without this mask. 

Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask | LINK | £22
Although, I'm still trying this out and still waiting until I can write a proper review on it but I love it so much that it would be unfair for me to not include it in my favourite.

L'Oréal Elvive Extraordinary Oil | LINK | £9.99
I love this hair oil ever since I tried it in the little sachets that I got with magazines. Even though, it took me a while to purchase the full-sized bottle. I'm still glad I did because it makes my hair feels so soft and smooth.

Kiko Quick Dry Nail Polish in Cobalt Blue | LINK | £2.50
Cobalt blue is the shade for 2013 and Kiko is extremely affordable. I love their nail polishes as it comes a vast range of shades and finishes.

L'Oréal Paris 3 in 1 Skin Perfection Micellar Water | LINK | Review | £3.33
The best makeup remover when it comes to the ease of use and price. In my opinion, it even beats Bioderma, mainly due to availability and affordability.

Real Technique Buffing Brush | LINK | £18.99
Why isn't this brush not sold by it self? I use this every day to put on my foundation and I wish that I have another one for powder. It's an amazing brush and it always makes my foundation looks flawless. 

iPhone 5 | LINK | Free with £47 per month contract
I don't know where I would be without this phone! A total life saver. There's an app for everything. This is my first ever Apple's product. Once you go over to Apple, there really is no going back.

Travel Charger | LINK 
All iPhone 5's owner know how bad the battery for iPhone 5 is. Sometimes it barely lasts the whole day. So this is another part of the iPhone 5's package and therefore, another life saviour. 

Kindle | LINK | £69
Here's to the end of carrying heavy books around with you. Very easy to use and great for travel. Having said that I still miss the way proper books feel.
