I know we are like more than 1/2 way through January! So I’ve finally got time to do my blog edition! If you watch my videos you would have already seen this, bascially it’s the same thing!
Makeup Remover – Hada Labo Cleansing Oil: I love this so much! Removes my face makeup so well I got send this & ever since I used it, I have honestly not stopped using it! I’ve already done a review which you can find here!!
Body Butter – Kiehl’s Creme de Corps: This is reallly pricey! I’ve never tried any other body product from Kiehl’s but I remember when I smelt this, I was sold! I did not get it because it is sooo pricey! Mom got it for me when she went away (yay) & I just bought a back up from the recent Kiehls sale too!
Eye Cream – Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado: I love this sooo much! I got this in the beginning of 2011, end of 2010. I did not use it religiously till about 3 months ago & oh my gosh, I am in love! Also got a back up because I think I can’t live without it anymore!
Hair Treatment – Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil: I’ve raved about this time & again! I even said that this is what saved my hair & made it more tame! Still holding true to that, though I am trying something else which might top it or be used hand in hand!
Face Primer- Shu Uemera UV Under Base Mousse: Sorry this did not make it into the picture I love this, thanks to Sara aka icyabstract I bought this! I was super impressed that her makeup stayed despite it being really hot (we were sweating!) & she looked perfect!
Mineral Foundation – Bare Minerals Original: I finally caved in and got this! I’ve heard so much about it, & I totally agree with all the good reviews about it! Though it might be a little pricey but it gives me a really flawless finish! It gives me enough coverage to wear on its own.
Liquid Foundation – Make Up For Ever HD Foundation & NARS Sheer Glow: I could not could not could not decide! It is really a tie between them! MUFE HD foundation gives you the perfect finish & it looks amazing on camera! Yeap like the name suggest HD As for sheer glow, it is very light and gives me a nice coverage too, I honestly don’t need that much coverage. I don’t know why both of the foundation colours look so different, trust me both of it matches me perfectly!
Powder Foundation – Benefit Hello Flawless: I love this, I am already on my 2nd one! This is my quick fix, if I don’t want to work with the Bare Minerals as it tends to get a tad messy!
Cream Concealer – Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit: 2nd year running, this has been featured in my favourites. I love how creamy this is! With my Kiehl’s eye cream under it just sets beautifully!
Eyeshadow – Urban Decay Naked Palette, Stilla Shadow in Kitten, NARS Kalahari & Isolade: 2011 was the year I branched out more into shadows I love my naked palette it is sooo natural & NARS Kalahari is a perfect everyday work shadow for me! It is not shimmery so it doesn’t look overdone! Stilla’s kitten is one of the best inner corner colour!
Eyeliner Liquid & Gel – MAC Liquidlast liner & Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Liner: I love these both so much! The MAC one doesn’t budge AT ALL! It is one of the best/if not the best liquid liner I’ve ever tried! Bobbi brown gel liner is actually pretty good too I’ve got very oily lids & this stays almost all day too!
Mascara – Chanel Inimitable: I’ve honestly have not found a holy grail mascara, though I am including this because it’s what I’ve used most in 2011, I would not say that this mascara is my holy grail mascara! It’s so hard for me to find a holy grail because I dislike when mascara lenthen my lashes! I look horrible, since I have really long lashes naturally.
Eyebrows – L’oreal Eye and Brow Duo: I got this for a steal in Aussie & i LOVE it for my brows! In fact I’ve already hit pan on the brow colour!
Lip products – Korres Mango lip butter, NARS Dolce Vita, MAC Deelight Cremesheen, Laura Mercier Nude Rose, Clarins Jollurouge in 705, Anna Sui Lip Rouge G in 305, Revlon Lip Butter in Pink Truffle, MAC Mattine in Deliciously Forbidden, YSL in #25
Colours in the same order, all swatched excpect Korres Lip Butter.
Blusher – MAC Darkly my Dear & NARS Multiple in Portofino: I love DMD it is a really neutral plum-ish colour, perfect for that ever day look! however it was limited edition but i reach for it sooo much! Portofind is an awesome cream blusher, mom loves it too & for awhile she actually had it living in her room! :p
Highlighter – Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronze: Ahhhh I can’t say enough about how much I love this! It just gives me the perfect highlited glowy look!
Nail Polish – Essie Wive goes on , Candy Mint Apple, In stitches.
Perfume – Anna Sui Forbidden Love!
Phew, we have come to an end of the best of 2011! I hope you guys enjoyed and maybe might pick some of these during this year, 2012?
