The When It Rains Beauty Awards 2013 :-)

Hey Guys! 

Last year I did a kind of "Best of 2012" post but this year I wanted to jazz it up a little so today I decided to talk about one product from each beauty category that I feel stood out to me this year. So I'm calling it the When It Rains Beauty Awards. WRBA!

I'll be picking out some products that have been talked about frequently on this blog over the last year.

So Here we go!

Starting with...


The Award For "Nail Polish of The Year" must go to the Maybelline Mint For Life nail polish.

Picture Taken From Google

I have my own bottle here but I can't seem to find a picture of it on it's own on my computer.

It's a gorgeous opaque mint nail polish that has been on many bloggers monthly favourites this year. It's looks great on and I re-applied it many times this past Summer. 

Body Lotion

The "Body Lotion Of The Year" Award Goes To.....Palmers Cocoa Butter!!!

This is a product that's been around for ages but I first tried it earlier in the year when I sampled it from a magazine and just had to own it for myself. It smells amazing and really does help with dry skin! 


The "Face Product Of The Year Award" Goes To Revlon Colorstay!

Revlon Colorstay has been around for a few years now and only this year did I try it out, I fell in instant love. It very workable even for my dry skin and the colour match is great!


The award for the "Lip Product Of The Year" goes too...

Maybelline Colorsensational Vivid in Neon Red!

The whole Maybelline Vivids line is amazing and I wish we had the whole range here in the UK but my favourite out of what we do have and also my favourite lip product from the whole year is the Neon Red lipstick. It's pigmented, flattering and moisturising. Everything you want really out of a red lipstick. Apparently it's also a dupe for Lady Danger from MAC!


The award for "Eye Product Of The Year" goes to..Maybelline Color Tattoo in On and On Bronze

A savior for days when you want a bit of eyeshadow on but haven't got the time or patience. You just wipe some on with a finger or brush, blend and that's it you're ready to go. I really want to get some more of these and I'm interested in the Bourjois versions too. 


The award for " Hair Product Of The Year" has to go to the Remington Pearl Curling Wand. 

I love this curling wand. It's my favourite and I know a lot of other people love the Remington Wands. Over the last year I've enjoyed curling my hair and this Christmas I received a new bigger version of this wand! Can't wait to see if it's as good as this one :-)


The Award for "Favourite Perfume Of The Year" Goes To....Just Cavalli By Roberto Cavalli

I seem to be a fan of most Roberto Cavalli Scents but this one really snuck up on me. When I first tried it I wasn't fussed but then I was given it as a gift and after wearing it for a few hours I grew to like it more and more. In fact this year it's become one of my most worn fragrances. It's unique, long lasting and exceptionally beautiful! I took it on holiday with me and it was surprisingly a great scent for both the night and day, it fit well on a beach and in a pub. What more could you need from a perfume? 

So there you go, those are my top products of 2013!

What were yours?

  1. Yep. Maybelline color tatto are a must (sad we don't get most of the shades here) Vivids is another great product and revlon colorstay too :)

  2. I know!!! It's the same with their lipstick, I don't understand why they don't bring their whole line here. They should realise that if the products seems to be doing well then we would like to try more of them!
