These are the lip products that I discovered and enjoyed using in 2013. The reason I didn’t include my Sephora lip gloss or Vivienne Sabo Lipstick in 112 is because I first tried them in 2012.
Going back to my lip favourites of 2013, I’ve chosen 5 products – 2 lipsticks, 2 lip glosses and 1 lip stain.
The lipsticks are: Kate Matte by Rimmel in 107 (gorgeous and very pigmented burgundy) and Creme Cup by Mac (lovely neutral pink that looks good on so many people).
The lip glosses are: Glam Shine 6h by L’oreal in 102 Always Pink (identical to my natural lip color, looks good on it’s own and locks the lipstick for up to 4 hours) and YSL golden gloss in 20 (I didn’t like it at first, but it works great with my nude Rimmel lipsticks).
And finally, Apocalips by Rimmel in Nude Eclipse is the perfect nude. This lip stain stays on well and smells good. Lovely product!
Overall, I’ve tried so many great makeup products during 2013. Right now I am looking dorward to buying some lip glosses from Tanya Burr’s Lips & Nails collection. She is a great makeup artist and I am sure the products she is launching are going to be luxe quality.

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you probably know that my all time favourite lip gloss is Sephora Ultra Shine Lip Gloss.

I have been raving about it for more than a year.

I first picked it up quite randomly. I was looking for a clear gloss, but instead I picked up their ’42 Precious Pink Jewels’. It is a very sheer light pink shade with gorgeous and very subtle shimmer to it. When I use this stuff on top of my lipstick, the brush always picks up a little bit of the lipstick. So eventually this lip gloss changes the color and becomes less sheer and even prettier.

But today I would like to talk about another shade from the Sephora lip gloss line. The new one I got recently is ’06 Shimmery Fresh Peach’. The Sephora website describes it as ‘shimmering golden peach’ and I don’t have anything to add.

Frankly speaking, I wasn’t too excited when I saw it in the bottle as it looked quite scarry and way too gold. But when I first tried it, I saw how sheer and pretty it looked. This shade looks beautiful both on top of a lip stick and on its own, however I do prefer it with a lippie underneath.

Moving towards the quality, it is hands down the best lip gloss I have ever tried in my entire life. Personally for me it works way better than YSL, Dior, MAC, etc. It is VERY light-weight on my lips, non-sticky and long-lasting. Smells absolutely lovely, has great brush and is super hydrating.

So, basically, for $14 you get a massive tube of an amazing lip gloss! I think it’s a great price for such a high-quality lip gloss!
