most popular posts of 2013

best beaty posts of 2013
So that's it... the year is up, done and dusted. Over on ETCLLYMLRS, I's been a busy one. I've done a whopping 350 posts on this blog this year, which I think has beat all my previous years running this blog. While I've had a few breaks and time off, an average of one a day is pretty good going. I thought today that I'd show you what posts were the most popular of 2013...

It's a surprise that a post I did only a few weeks ago has drawn in over 40,000 page views, especially in such a short amount of time. I think it might actually be one of my most popular posts I've ever written across both of my blogs since I launched four years ago. It's a little bit mind blowing. I thought a big hair change would probably prompt some curiosity, but nothing like that. I'm not at all taken back by the fact the UK launch date of the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette would be popular. It's been such a hyped up product in general so knowing when it hit UK soil made you all click through. I was not surprised at all to see it in the top 5 of 2013. Another really exciting launch was in the top 6 was the Revlon Matte Crayons. I can see these being huge once they officially come out, and I presume a lot of people will want to refer to my extensive swatching of the range for future reference. Discount RealTechniques brushes didn't come as a shock to me either as I knew that getting those awesome brushes for cheap were definitely going to stir up some interest! Again, another super popular post was the launch of the of Bioderma in the UK. I still think it needs to roll out UK wide, but I filled you in on all the details on where to get the iconic bottles of micellar water and when it would be readily available in the uk.

The shocker for me is how popular the Rimmel Space dust nail polish swatches I did. I liked the polishes but wasn't really overwhelmed by them, but you guys seem to love seeing the swatches, so I guess that's a good thing. Sometimes you just can't predict what will and won't be popular in the blogosphere!

It seems like you guys can get enough of first looks or product launches! I must try and be more on the ball in 20134 bringing you the best and latest beauty news. I'll be back a little later with a link to a survey I'd love if yo guys could fill in. Its just going to be a few questions on what you'd like to see more of on here and what kinda of things you like me talking about!`

  15. The Revlon Color Burst Matte Crayons post helped me so much! These were already out in the US when this was written, so I had this opened on my phone while I tried to decide on the colors in the store :) I also loved the Naked3 post too!
