2013 Beauty Favorites






Happy New Year’s Day! I hope that everyone had a wonderful New Year’s Eve – I spent mine relaxing, sipping champagne and watching episodes of the Twilight Zone and Ja’mie Private School Girl. For the past few weeks I have been making notes of my 2013 favorites, and it has been difficult to narrow down my choices.

    Sara – I just got NYC Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee and I totally adore it. Its such a beautiful color and I love the texture of the butter glosses. Also need to try the butterfly effect mascara – everyone raves about it. Thanks for posting.

      I think it looks much more purple in the packaging- it gives such a gorgeous berry glow to the cheeks! Nars Sin and Deep Throat are must-haves for me 🙂

      Take a look at my post- “what I’m wearing today: featuring the naked2 palette” there’s a much better photo of sin there – and I’m also wearing it on my cheeks 🙂
