My 2013 BEST Products

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I want to share what have been my best 2013 products, which covers skin, nails, tools and of course MAKEUP :)

Lets begin!  Click the link in () to see pictures and read further information.

Skin Care:
I use my clarisonic machine with my cleanser (Mario Badescu or Josie Maran) during the weekdays especially if I am wearing makeup (it helps remove all the bacteria and oil from the skin that can clog the pores); followed with Mario Badescu Cucumber Cleaning Lotion (toner); During the weekend, I repeat the same steps except I use my Lush mask instead of my Clarisonic (never use a Clarisonic with any cleanser that has pebbles).

  • Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre'
  • Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm (Urban Decay)
  • Eve Pearl Priming Moisturizer Treatment with Astaxanthin (Moisturizer)
  • Eve Pearl Fx HD Primer Moisturizer (HD Fx Primer)
  • Josie Maran Argan Infinity Creamy Oil (Creamy Oil)


Tarte and Benefit works the same.  The difference is the consistency.  Hourglass works amazing yet pricey.

I recently changed my routine when applying anti-shine.  Now, I spray 'No Glow' and wait until it  dries.  Then mix Hydra-Mat and a primer and apply to my face followed with foundation, etc.  This helps me throughout the day, but if I need touch up I'll use E.P Finish Powder.


I love to use Eve Pearl during the Summer.  It's not heavy and works beautifully.  During Fall and Winter, I like to use MUFE and Neutrogena especially when my skin begins to dry.

I like to use MAC Pro Longwear and Eve Pearl to highlight; MAC Studio and Eve Pearl to cover 'flaws' like acne, acne scars and redness; and E.P to contour.
