Favorites From October - December 2013

I know I am very late with this post and most people are already long done with theirs but I just can't move forward until I finish mine as well.
I've been very spoiled in 2013 and I've found so many favorites throughout the year but the truth is I am starting to get really overwhelmed with the products that I can't finish and the products that I neglected due to my insatiable love and greed for beauty products. So I promised myself that for the new year, I will spend less money and more time playing with my current products.

If you missed any of my trimester favorites, please feel free to check the following links to see what I loved using last year:

With no further ado, here are my favorites for the remaining of 2013...

Eye Makeup

1. Mehron INtense Pro Pressed Powder Pigments Earth Palette. One of the best matte palettes I've come across.
2. Mehron INtense Pro Pressed Powder Pigments Wind Palette.
3, 4, 5. Yves Rocher Metalglow Cream EyeshadowsBronze, Mercure, Cuivre Rose. creamy, buildable, smooth, and easy to blend.
6. Prestige Brow Perfection Brow Building System Medium-Deep. Affordable tinted brow gel.
7 & 8. Color Tattoo Nude Pink and Matte Brown. Too bad this was limited edition. These were some nice matte cream eyeshadows.

Urban Decay Black Market. Awesome set. The colors are dark and easy to wear.

Urban Decay Black Market Swatches

Prestige Total Intensity Against All Odds Liquid Ink Eyeliner All Nighter. Looking for a dark navy blue liquid liner that's bullet proof? Check this one out!

Lip Colors

1. Sephora + Pantone Universe Velvet Lipstick Earth Red. Creamy, smooth, hydrating, matte red. Such a fantastic color. I love it.
2. OCC Black Dahlia. Sultry, dark, and mysterious blackened red.
3. Bite Beauty Rhubarb. Incredible pigmentation and formula. It's a lovely mauve brown that's great for every day wear.
4. Maybelline Color Elixir, Intoxicating Spice. Simply gorgeous. I love this earth tone shade.
5. Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss Adorned. It's one of the most amazing pink gloss I have in my collection. So vibrant, stunning, and love that it is affordable.
6. Revlon Matte Balm Sultry. It's incredibly smooth, pigmented, light-weight, and semi-matte.

Face Products

1. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Face palette. The powders feel so soft and silky. It's finely milled and add a soft luminous glow to my face. Holy Grail face product for me. 
2. Tarte Off The Cuff Amazonian Clay Blush Palette. I love this palette. The colors are pigmented and easy to blend. They are also lovely for daily wear.


L'Occitane Pivoine Flora EDP. Soft, delicate, woodsy, floral, and fresh. 
Dolce & Gabbana The One EDP. Warm floral oriental scent with a slight powdery scent. The scent is casual and classy at the same time.


1. L'Occitane One Minute Hand Scrub. This scrub is fantastic and effective for scrubbing away dry winter skin and leaving hands feeling soft and smooth.
2. Freeman Facial Polish Mask Charcoal & Black Sugar. Wonderful budget-friendly sugar scrub that exfoliate without drying out.
3. Mario Badescu Drying Lotion. One of the best and effective spot treatment I've tried for the occasional pimple.
4. L'Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil. This oil feels and smell so good. It really helped lock in moisture and make my skin feel softer.
5. Jack Black Lip balms. I got to try the shea butter and black cherry pomegranate flavor and love them both.

6. L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil. I am obsessed with the L'Occitane almond collection. This oil feels really nice and smells divine.

7. Missha Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Gel Mask. I wished it wasn't so pricey for a one time use mask but it makes my skin feel so good afterward.

Nail Polishes

1 & 2. I Love Nail Polish Multichrome Nostalgia and Sweet Serenade. I love these multichromes. They are fantastic.
3. Orly Purple Poodle. Gorgeous color, great formula. I love Orly polishes.
4. Forever 21 Sand Lacquer Burnished Gold. One of the more unique texture color I've seen. The formula was also really nice as well as the price.
5. Anise Nail Polish Be Wordly. Medium dark purple with lots of fine scattered holo glitters.
6. Essie Lots of Lux. I love the mix of blue, gold, and teal shimmers in this lovely vibrant cobalt blue textured glitters.
7. L'Oreal Hidden Gems. Another unique textured glitter polish combo. I think it's my favorite from the collection.


  1. I regret not getting the hourglass palette! everyone seems to really love it

    1. Even if you didn't get the palette. The Ambient Light powders are worth the investment I think. I would definitely repurchase when I finish these.
