2011 Favourites


Trying to select my favourites for 2011 was easy. I selected products that I have repurchased throughout the year and find myself going to without thinking about them.

Also, a big factor of selecting my 2011 favourites are how well and how they performed on me.

To make it easier to follow along with this long post I labeled each picture with a number, now this number does not indicate who ranked 1st or last, its just easier for you to follow. lol.

So lets begin!

Picture 1.
The naked palette by Urban Decay. I love this palette! Its so versatile. I can create the easiest simplest look to most dramatic look by just using this palette.

Picture 2.
Smashbox contour palette and Smashbox pressed translucent powder in medium. I use these in pro kit and was lucky enough to receive a contour palette at the spring training that I kept one for my personal use. I love these products! They leave amazing natural results.

Skincare. OK, so, because as part of my perks working at SDM, I have the opportunity to try out alot of skincare. I try high end to low end, But my absolute favourites in 2011 has to be Lancome's Visionnaire, Genifique nutrics, cream radiance face cleanser.  Vasanti's eye wonder and Brighten up! face scrub.  Marcelle's soothing cleansing water.  Dermaglow 8% glycolic moisturizer

I have been using these products since May 2011 and have seen so much improvement in my skin. I absolutely love all these skincare products. I love the way my skin feels, looks and reacts. Love Love Love!

Hair products. I truly love Live Clean products, but this macadanian oil hair treatment is my life saver, actually my hair saver. It conditions my hair wonderfully and leaves it silky soft, shiny, and smelling so good!
Got2B volume powder works wonders in my hair to give it a natural fullness but leaves my hair touchable.
Ice Cream hydrator is just that, a tall glass of water for my dry hair over processed hair.  The Ice cream thermal sleek safe spray is a miracle worker! It literally coats the hair, creates new hair! Once sprayed onto your hair, just before you flat iron. Your hair transforms into this sleek healthy soft shiny hair!

Mascaras. So many mascaras! I just threw out over 20 mascaras that went bad from being tested out by me. some I liked alot but not enough to be part of my favs.
Lancome's Hypnose drama, L'oreal voluminous false lashes, Annabelle's Le Big show, and the amazing Benefit's They're Real.

Physicians formula liquid liner with serum is a dream to apply and its so fluid to work with.
Annabelle's smoothie eyeshadow pencils are amazing but I LOVE the color Licoriche. So long lasting, so smooth to work with, so pigmented, such long wearing pencil. LOVE!

Picture 7.
Lips.  I like Stila But I love Stila long wearing lipsticks even more! The color selection is amazing. The smooth, non drying, super long lasting formula is genius.
When it comes to lipstick, I always venture over to Marcelle. I love Marcelle lipsticks.
Lip glosses by Vasanti are the best lip glosses ever, nothing more can be said because they are.

So those are my 2011 Favourites!

I did leave out foundations because I am still looking for my love, I like a few but nothing that I can commit to.
If you would like more info on these products just leave me a comment.

Happy 2012 and Happy Makeup Shopping!
