Holy grail products for 2013!

It feels like forever since I've wrote a beauty post, well it has been a while... so we shall see how good my adjectives are when describing products. Brace yourself.
I didn't know whether it was a little bit too early to post this (as it's not quite the end of the year) but oh well! Instead of doing a December favourites I just thought I will pick 5 of my holy grail products for this year.

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette
This palette though. It's perfect. You have probably heard every single beauty blogger rave about the Naked Palettes, sorry. But... everything is marvellous about them. The pigmentation is ridiculous, they last all day (literally), they have a huge range of neutral shades. Some palettes have the same matte browny shades, but not this palette. It has 3 mattes (I do wish there were more matte shades...), the rest of the shades have shimmer in. I could sit here and write 1000 word essay on why you should buy this but I won't bore you. 

Collection Sheer Loose Powder 
You never really here Collection get much attention apart from the famous 'lasting perfection concealer'. But when looking for a new loose powder a few months ago I picked this up in a rush and have loved it ever since. I didn't think I was going to love it that much, but oh boy this is good stuff. If you have really oily skin, I suggest you run to boots jump in your car and go to Boots and buy this. I have never used a powder which keeps my skin so matte. This powder beats my Mac Blot Power, and that's something.

Maybelline The Falsies
I must have repurchased this 5 times, at least. This is my all-time favourite mascara. It adds incredible amounts of length and volume, and makes your eyes pop. If you haven't tried this mascara, you need to. Otherwise your eyelashes may cry you're missing out!

Maybelline BB Cream (for oily skin)
I have gone through so many tubes of the  Maybelline BB creame for normal skin, so when they came out with the one for oily skin, I was ridiculously happy. Having oily skin is the most annoying thing in the world, and this BB cream helps keep my face matte for a great amount of time. I will never find a foundation/BB cream that keeps my face matte ALL day, but this one comes pretty close! It gives a smooth, gorgeous finish and evens out all my stupid redness. Defiantly give this a try, if you're looking for a new BB cream/light foundation!

Real Technique Expert Face Brush
This brush is the just the perfect face brush. It blends in your foundation so easily and smoothly. It's the perfect density and well every blogger and their mum has this brush. Therefore I'm sure you've heard someone rave about this brush before.

Woah, that was a long post. Well feels like it to me because I've been dipping between writing this, twitter and vlogmas. Vlogmas is the reason my grades go down in the Christmas 'period', well that's what I'll blame it on anyway...
This weekend I have been spending a lot of time with the famala and being all festive. I also have a few packages arriving soon, so expect a haul at some point. Oh, and just in case you think I've been abducted by aliens in 2 weeks I will be going on vacation (only for a week)! Therefore I will not be appearing on your twitter feed or dashboard as much as I would like! But I'm planning on still posting one post throughout that week! Don't panic!
Hope you've all had a lovely weekend, and if you're still at school (like me) enjoy your last week!

Comment, follow and all that jazz!
