It seems every year the beauty products get better and better, and 2013 did not disappoint! Here are my favorite products that were either released this year or I discovered this year.


Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette
I mean, this was bound to end up on on my favorites list. As if the original Vice palette wasn’t awesome enough, Urban Decay created, in my opinion, an even better version in the Vice 2 palette. I can create practically any look with this palette, and it’s got the perfect balance of neutral shades and bold, vibrant colors.


Sigma Enlight Warm Neutrals Palette
I’m on palette overload over here!! When I first wrote my review of the Warm Neutrals palette from the Sigma Enlight collection, I think I said it best: “It’s as if Sigma went inside my head and saw my perfect combination of colors.” And for someone who adores neutrals and blush tones, this is going to be a favorite for a very long time.


Givenchy Mister Light Concealer Pen
I’ve been brightening up my under eyes with Mister Light for a couple months now and I love it! I like to mix Mister Toast and Mister Macaroon (such cute and clever names, too!) for the perfect combination of peach and beige to both combat darkness and brighten.


Murad Essential-C Day Moisturizer
It’s no surprise that this day cream has a 4.8 out of 5 rating from online reviews: It’s hydrating, it’s got a broad spectrum SPF 30, and it packs Vitamin C! I reach for this every single day.
