EauMG’s Favorite Makeup & Beauty Products of 2013

Inspired by Gaia of The Non-Blonde and her “Best of 2013” post, I’ve decided to do a round-up of my favorite “new to me” makeup and beauty products of 2013.

I can barely keep up with perfume launches, I can’t keep up with makeup and beauty launches/collections. My round-up isn’t about products launched in 2013 (some were) but more about which products that I have found in 2013 that I used and will repurchase.

Naked Princess Vanille Blanc Body Souffle Review

Naked Princess Vanille Blanc

Naked Princess is a luxury lingerie and lounge wear line located in California. I’d love to own one of their feminine, tasteful items one day (I’m rather partial to anything cashmere and lace).

NEST Fine Fragrances & A Review

My favorite home fragrance line has finally done it; they’ve finally made a fine personal fragrance line. The Fine Fragrance line consists of 3 perfumes that come in a 3.4 oz spray, rollerball (about .3 oz) and body cream.

The Fine Fragrance line is inspired by the artwork of 18th century artist Mary Delany and her “Paper Mosaiks”, botanical artworks meticulously created with varying shades and textures of paper. The noses behind the scents are Christophe Laudamiel (Estee Lauder Youth Dew Amber Nude, Michael Kors Island) and Jerome Epinette (Byredo Pulp, Fresh Cannabis Rose).

Korres Guava Body Butter Review

Korres Guava Butter

Korres Guave Body Butter is a great product for those with really dry skin. This is a super emollient and rich cream. It’s thick but easy to rub in if your skin is a little damp or just right out of the shower. It keeps skin moisturized and soft until the next day. It isn’t greasy, sticky, or icky. I like most of Korres products. They are gentle, natural, and of course, I like their smell. This Guava Body Butter… Continue reading | 2 Comments
