The older I get, the faster times flies…I just can’t believe another year has gone by already!
1. Verge Ribbon Wand ($120)
The Verge Ribbon Wand is like a curling iron and a flat iron got together and had a baby. It makes extravagant, sort of retro curls.
2. Wantable Accessories Subscription Box ($40 for one box)
I adore subscription boxes and none continually delighted me as much in 2013 as my Wantable Accessories Subscription Box. My jewelry wardrobe now has far more depth and interest than ever before.
3. Bronze Buffer (2 sponges for $10)
Ah, sometimes the smallest things make the biggest difference. These little sponges (they always make me think of Lisa from The Simpsons!) ensure that my every faux tan is perfection.
4. HTY Gold
This wonderful line was new to me in 2013 and I adored everything I tested…the Face and Neck Serum is unquestionably worth its weight in gold.
Lanikai is such a gorgeous bath and body line, and I am always up for some Hawaiian daydreaming. I adore, adore, adore the Loofah Soap, it is amazing.
6. Zuca Artist Backpack ($139)
I use this backpack at least six days a week. I love it. Zuca has tons of amazing travel items and organizational things for makeup artists but this is my favorite. I rarely go anywhere without it.
I use this every single day. It is the best buffing brush for concealer I have ever found.
8. Bango Hair Cutting Kit ($15.99)
If you have bangs…or if your kids have bangs…you need this. I am a total klutz with scissors and I get perfect results every time. It saved me a ton of money in 2013.
9. Cailyn Gelux Eyebrow ($22)
I love the ingenious packaging, and I love the eyebrow gel even more. It makes great looking eyebrows a very easy thing to accomplish.
10. Ellis Faas Hot Lips ($35)
Without fail, one of these liquid lip gloss/stains is always in my purse. I dig everything about them – the texture, the shades, the packaging…and especially how great they make my not-so-great lips look.
11. Savvy Sleeper Satin Pillowcases (from $36)
Not only does this satin pillowcase prevent those awful morning face creases, it also has a secret pocket for my hubby to slip me a love note. It is awesome.
12. Senna Voluptulash Mascara ($22)
This is the best mascara I tried in 2013. The super cool helix-shaped brush gives me great big, soft, long lashes with just one coat. It’s a winner!
2013 was a great year for beauty items…what fabulous finds made your list??
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Lisa
