TOP 11 OF 2011!

the 11 products in 2011 that i could not live without!

1. Urban Decay De-Slick in a Tube Mattifying Gel

i do not know what i did before discovering this product- oh yes, i do remember, my face would be a patchy, oily mess by the end of a long day. no primer i tried would keep my foundation from fading off my combo/oily skin. i use this mattifying gel as a primer all over my face before foundation, and it keeps everything looking fresh for no less than 12 hours. 

2. MAC Creme Cup lipstick

my favorite pinky-nude lip. this color is gorgeous.

3. Dior Lip Glow

this is a pink glossy balm that is literally on my lips AT. ALL. TIMES. it moisturizing, smells good, and gives a gorgeous flush of pink color to my lips that can be built up into a more intense pink. it is incredibly long lasting as well- when the glossyness fades off, a stain of color is left.

4. Milani Baked Blushes

Fantastico Mauve
Bellissimo Bronze

these blushes are super pigmented and apply so smooth. each has a gorgeous luminosity running through them that give my cheeks a highlighted glow. i use the bronze shade in the summer, the plum shade for the perfect winter flush, and luminoso all year round, as it gives a nice peach color.

5. Urban Decay Naked Palette 

these are by far my most used eyeshadows- i am a neutrals girl so it doesnt get any better for me than this palette. (except of course the naked2!) a few of my favorite colors from this palette are: naked, buck, darkhorse, smog, toasted, and hustle. 

6. Ardell 120 Demi Wispies

2011 will forever be the year that i learned how to apply false lashes, and once i started, i could not stop! these are my everyday lashes- full but natural. 

7. Nars Laguna Bronzer

my favorite bronzer- perfect color, perfect satiny finish. 

8. Laura Mercier Mineral Powder Foundation in Natural Beige

i use this powder everyday to set my makeup for a perfect, airbrushed finish. because it is a powder foundation, i also use it over concealer on days i dont wear liquid foundation. it gives the perfect natural-looking coverage and lasting powder, never looks cakey or powdery, and lets my skin show through. 

9. Benefit Erase Paste in NO.2

i have almost nothing left in this pot of salmon-toned, creamy, correcting concealer, and it is a MUST-re-purchase-immediately product. it brightens, smooths, and conceals the under eye area like nothing i have ever tried before...and i have tried every concealer that exists.

10. L'oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara

this is my all time favorite mascara. i have not been without a tube of this for the entire year! it is the most thickening, volumizing, and darkening mascara i have found yet.

11. Makeup Forever Aqua Eyes Liner in 0L

this is my favorite black pencil. its creamy, but not too creamy- the perfect consistency.
