Favorites of the Year 2013

This past (almost!) year I ended up purchasing more makeup than I'd ever need, call it a beauty bloggers curse, but when something new launches there is this unsuppressable urge to try it out and see for yourself how well it works, or trying out the time-tried high-end cult favorites and I got caught into that spell and purchased this whole lot you see above and a bit more that I couldn't locate while clicking pictures for this post.

Among the new brands that I got to try I can say without a doubt that Benefit is my favorite, I like a multitude of their products, almost all that I tried impressed me. The PR samples have been marked with a *.
