Hits and Misses of 2013 - Makeup

Hits and Misses of 2013 - Makeup

One of the most exciting part of every year is sharing my makeup favourites at the very end. And also the not-so-favourites that did not work for me. This year I tried A LOT of makeup and it was SUPER fun. I got to fall in love with products and some of them I assure you are never leaving my vanity for a couple of more years to come. Thankfully, there were not so many bad encounters this time.

Here is a picture of all Hits and Misses put together, now let's get down to business shall we?

Misses are what makes us the most curious, so here's me telling you why I don't like each product.

Benefit Fake Up Concealer (review)
A very sheer coverage concealer, way too moisturising that just sinks into my undereyes without concealing anything.

Illamasqua Under Eye Concealer (review)
A concealer made especially for the under eye which again is way too sheer and creamy for my liking.

Illamasqua Powder Blush in 'Hussy' (review)
A cult-favourite and I don't know what's wrong with mine. I love the colour but it is way too powdery and takes forever to blend.

L.A. Girl Eye Liner in 'Navy'
I can write my whole diary with this thing and it won't break. It is the stiff-est, non-creamiest eye pencil I have ever come across.

Astor Big & Beautiful Lovely Doll Mascara (review)
A very average mascara that does nothing what it claims.

L'Oreal Colour Caresse Shine Stains in 'Juliet'
I already hate the formula of this Shine Stain range but Juliet has to be the worst of the bunch with its patchy application which is so noticeable in such a dark red shade.

Do you share any of my favourites or non-favourites?
