Favorite Beauty Products of 2010

Now that 2010 is gone and done I would give homage to all the wonderful beauty products that helped me make it through :)

These are my favorite products of 2010

We will start with Makeup

Foundation: I honestly couldn't get enough of Maybellines's Dream Matte Mouse the coverage is Fantastic! 

Eyeliner:  As far as potted eyeliners go MAC fluidline will always be winner, for a low cost version I recommend ELF cream liner,  both go on smooth and won't budge after applying!  Fantabulous!

Mascara:  Well this is probably no big surprise to my readers...drumroll please.....  Covergirl Lash Blast... Best Mascara Ever!!!!!!!

Blush:  I can't get enough of of either of these Blushes. Bare Essentials Blush in Giddy Pink  is an awesome shimmering pink and Elf's studio blush and contour set. This blush is compareable to NARS orgasm not quite the same but close a very peachy pink.

Lipstick and gloss:
NYX's lip gloss  in Spongecake reigned queen in my lipgloss drawer while  Mary Kay's bronzed creme lipstick quickly became a favorite lipstick due to its ohhhhh so creamy texture and staying power.

Contour and Highlight:  My favorite contour powder was wet n wild's Icon Bronzer. Highly pigmented and super cheap!!! Favorite Highlight was MAC shimmertime pigment mixed with a bit of moisturizer so so pretty!!!

 Primer for Face and Eyes:  Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Milk and Benefit's Lemonaid for the eyes. The Lemon aid is great for a primer or after a rough night really nice and brightening and the NYX pencil is so great for wearing under eyeshadows, it is going to make those colors pop like crazy!  Smashbox photofinish is my choice for the face although I would only wear this on special occasions I find using it too often will lead to breakouts due to the products ability to literally fill in fine lines and wrinkles it dosen't let your skin "breath" but nontheless its a total favorite.

Powders Press and loose:

Clinique Stay Matte is a longtime favorite for a reason its so silky and my skin looks and feels absolutely goregeous after application. Love it!  As far as loose powders go I gotta say coty airspun is not only economical but it looks good  and lasts FOREVER!!!!

 Wow, this catergory is kinda hard for me as my main makeup purchases go toward eyeshadow colors. My most reached for palette was my 120 palette you can't go wrong with 120 colors at your fingertips!  I  also really got in to HIP color Duo's this year, the pigmentation is Amazing and the color choices are Bold and Bright! And of course I can't get enough of Simply Kendra's loose shadows! :)~

Avon takes the cake with their smooth minerals concealer. Full coverage and the brush that goes with this is really nice!

As far as face products went I couldn't get enought Of PCA skin from their cleanser to their exfoliater their products are top notch!
Facial Moisturizer:
Love  Love Love Rare Minerals Moisturizer. Extremely Light, doesn't clog pores, sinks right in. Good Stuff!

Body Lotion

OMG this lotion smells so good your going to want to eat it fresh right out of the Jar!  Whoopie Cream Shea Butter from Farm House Fresh is AMAZING!

Self Tanner:
Wow this year I really do have a favorite actually I have two. Fake Bake airbrush mist and L'Oreal Sublime Bronze One Day Instant Tanning Gel. Fake Bake is guranteed not to turn you orange, it gives just such a wonderful bronze color and L'Oreals sublime Bronze one day gel is FANTASTIC for one days worth of sunkissed skin, that and if you mess up, you can wash it off and start over!

Hair Products:

Tried and True I always seem to find myself picking of Pantene Pro-V love this stuff

My favorite multipurpose product that treats everything from tangles to split ends is" Its a 10" Miracle. It really just dosen't get any better that this! Its a Miracle!

Favorite Flat Iron Spray:  Kenra thermal protector, really really love this stuff ! I would like to note I also use this as my hairspray as it has a light hold
Split End Mender:

Thank you joico!!! When I get out of the shower Joico K-pak split end mender is the first thing I reach for. It really does a great job at smoothing my ends!

So there it is , some of my favorite proucts of 2010. Would love to  know what some of yours were! Hope you enjoyed. Thanks so much for reading and for all the support!
