2013 Favorites: Most Loved and Most Used Products of the Year

In just four days 10amBeauty turns one year old.  One year of growth, learning, experimenting, and most of all…beauty!  I’ve had so much fun along the way and have found enjoyment in things I never saw myself doing (um, photography?).

Thank you so much for sharing in my makeup obsession.  I enjoy all the comments, tweets, and Facebook messages.  Makeup is so much more fun when I have people to share it with!

I thought I’d do something special to combine the last year into a single post so here is a video I put together with my favorite products of 2013.  Enjoy!

    I love that you said you really appreciate Stromboli! LOL! You are ADORBS! I loved the video. I remember you saying something about having a fear of losing all personality in front of the camera and that is nothing you need to worry about! It was so nice to get to see you and hear you talk! i can’t believe 10amBeauty is only {nearly} 1! When I first found your blog, I thought you’d been around for years based on your photo skills and posts! Congratulations on 1 year of blogging! Cheers to many more! :) Hugs, chickadee!

      I did have a multi-focus blog previously for a year or so, but 10amBeauty launched at Christmas time last year. Glad you liked the video, I’m eager to make more! Hugs back and a Merry Christmas to you and J!

    What a great way to commemorate your blogiversary! It was really great to meet you virtually. :) Truly appreciate your perspective and hard work, and looking forward to seeing and hearing more over the next year.

    As for your question, let me +1 the Too Faced La Creme lipstick and theBalm eyeshadows (in my case, Meet Matt Nude) and add the Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee in Poppy, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim light and Physician’s Formula Eye Definers (liquid and regular eyeliners). My bargain tip is the ELF Eyebrow gel – no nonsense clear gel that works for $1!

    Happy Holidays, Alison!

      Hooray, I’m happy you like the video :) I really want to try more Josie Maran products (I’m blown away by the Bear Naked nail wipes) and I’ve had my eye on the cheek gelees. What’s your application method and placement for Dim Light? I struggle with that one. I also have Meet Matt Nude but it needs to see some more love. Maybe I’ll challenge myself to do a post. So funny that Phys Form liquid liners are on my must-try list for 2014…we are on the same page for sure <3
