2013 Beauty Favorites (Part II): Makeup

Coming to Part II of my beauty favorites this 2013…And yeah you can check out Beauty Favorites 2013 – Part I too.
Let’s see what all makeup stuff stole my heart this year…
EYES
Pictured above (L to R) – MAC Select Moisture Cover Concealer, Bourjois Clubbing Liner in Electro Blue, Lakme Eyeconic Kajal, Ikonic Gel Pencil in Black, Maybelline Hypersharp Liner.
MAC Select Moisture Cover Concealer – This was the year when I broke my MAC virginity as they call it. This concealer in shade NW40 is perfect for my medium dark circles. I think I’m gonna be loyal to this product in the times to come as well, since my dark circles are going nowhere!
Priced at INR 1100 for 5 ml.
Bourjois Clubbing Liner (Electro Blue) – This one is just LOVE,LOVE, LOVE all the way! Everything about this liner is great except the price 😀 Read its full review HERE along with an EOTD.
Priced at INR 725 for 4 ml.
Lakme Eyeconic Kajal – Nothing can beat my love for this eye pencil in the past year. I haven’t managed to review this on the blog, though I am already on my second pencil. No sharpening required & creamy formula with a deep black pigmentation is all what it takes to make it to my most-loved list!
Priced at INR 150.
Ikonic Gel Eye Pencil (Black) – Another creamier, deep black eyeliner formula that is something I love again.
Priced around INR 200-250.
Maybelline Hypersharp Liner – I was rather late to buy this product, but now no looking back! Its great to draw very fine lines & for thicker ones too.
Priced at INR 375.
FACE
Pictured above (Clockwise) – MAC Cleanse Off Oil, MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation, VIVO Baked Blush (Rouge Shimmer)
MAC Cleanse Off Oil – This is one of my very recent purchases. I have always been a tad skeptical about using oil on the face.. but this product changed my perspective about them altogether. You can read about this wonderful product in detail HERE.
Priced at INR 1600 for 150 ml.
MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation – A great find this year! This has replaced all my other powder compacts.. probably I will never buy any other again. Offers decent coverage too. The only pain is to pick the right shade!
Priced at INR 1700.
VIVO Baked Blush (Rouge Shimmer) – A random purchase at that, this turned out to be true love! A girly pink with iridescent shimmer, you can comfortably miss a highlighter with this, as it gives you that radiant glow from within. I ventured into blushes only this year & this has to be my most used. Read more about this pretty blush HERE.
Priced at GBP 4. Not available in India. Can be purchased from VIVO Cosmetics.
DIY Makeup Remover – I prepared this a while back, which worked great for me. This can give Lancome Bi-facil & MAC Cleanse Off Oil a run for their money. Read how you can make this too HERE.
LIPS
Pictured above (Clockwise from left) – ELF Lip Exfoliator, Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer (Aurora), MAC Marilyn Monroe LE Lipstick (Love Goddess), Bourjois Rouge Edition (Shade #05), MAC Satin Finish Lipstick (Chili), Avon Pop Love Lipstick (Watermelon), Oriflame Demi Moore Lipstick (Pink Drama)
I just couldn’t pick 1 or 2 favorite lippies… I am out-n-out a lipstick person & enjoyed all these pretty things listed above thoroughly all through the year.
Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer (Aurora) – Its a lovely coral-red shade that would suit Indian skin tones very well. A highly glossy liquid lipstick, this has been everyone’s favorite both here in the country & abroad.
Priced at INR 475. Available at Rimmel counters all over the country.
ELF Lip Exfoliator – Got this through my friend last year when she was coming back from the States. I am lazy to prepare DIY lip scrubs & neither have the heart to spend bucks on a little pot of lip scrub from Lush. This is great value for money & does its job like a pro!
Priced at USD 2-3. Not available in India. Can be purchased from EyesLipsFace.com

MAC Marilyn Monroe LE Lipstick (Love Goddess) – A stunning pinkish red this one is! Not for the faint hearted & truly Monroe style.
INR 1050 for 3 g.
Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick (Shade #05 – Brun Boheme) – Aww! Another love-dovey shade…A unique one at that too. Check out detailed review with lip swatches HERE.
Priced at INR 955.
MAC Matte Lipstick (Chili) – My very first MAC lipstick! A gorgeous burnt orangey-red, this can be quite drying. But the shade makes up for it! 🙂
Priced at INR 990 for 3 g.
Avon Simply Pretty Pop Love Lipstick (Watermelon) – A recent launch from Avon, this truly is a watermelon shade. Your hunt for that right amount of pink & red in a lipstick that resembles close to that of a watermelon ends here. Read more about this lipstick with lip swatches HERE.
Priced at INR 179.
Oriflame Demi Moore Lipstick (Pink Drama) – High-end packaging, high-end formula, high-end everything at about more than half the price! That’s Oriflame Demi Moore lipstick for you. Pink Drama is a bright, blue-based fuchsia that brightens the face instantly. Have reviewed this lipstick with FOTD HERE.
Priced at INR 598.
NAILS
Pictured above (L to R) – Maybelline Color Show (Mint Mojito), MUA Fashionista Nail Lacquer (Mystic Dragon), Maybelline Color Show (Orange Fix), Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat (Fuzz-Sea), Maybelline Color Show (Ladies Night).
If 2013, saw me go crazy over blushes, it also saw me go gaga over nail paints. Here are the special ones from my nail collection this year…
Maybelline Color Show Nail Paints – They stole the show this year & are still the most sought after nail paints amongst all drugstore variants available. I picked up 4 shades earlier that have been swatched HERE and recently ended up picking one more shade – Ladies Night.
Priced at INR 75.
Make Up Academy (MUA) Fashionista Nail Lacquer (Mystic Dragon) – A gorgeous peacock green with exuberant green & gold glitter. Perfect for parties to add that oomph to your look. Swatches coming soon!
Priced at GBP 5.
Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat (Fuzz-Sea) – Another new entrant in the Indian market, these pipe glitters as a combo can steal anyone’s heart in just one look. I picked a pretty pastel blue & yellow combination to go with most of my dark nail shades. Check out swatches of this pretty thing HERE.
With that I rest my case of enlisting beauty discoveries & favorites of the year 2013! 🙂
