I was recently in one of my favorite beauty/makeup forums Specktra and someone started a "Top 10 products reached for in 2010" thread. I starting thinking about my own and there were many! But I finally posted this narrowed down list. I love to see what other people posted as their favorites. A lot of products were some of my own favorites and others I had never tried. This really gave me some great ideas for my beauty/makeup shopping list for 2011. So I thought I'd share my own favorites here and maybe someone else can see some things to try out for 2011...
1. MAC Mineralize Skinfinish (MSF) Natural in Deep Dark
I love this for everyday! It gives a very natural and light base. I buff this in with my beloved ELF powder brush and keep it moving...
2. Urban Decay Naked Palette
This is my LOVE!! This is definitely one product that lives up to the hype! The range of colors and quality of eyeshadows are great for my everyday work looks...so versatile!
3. MAC Groundwork Paint Pot
Definitely my go to base for eyeshadows. I usually use this as a base and primer. My eyeshadows stay put all day. It is the perfect eyeshadow base for my MAC NW45 skin...
4. ELF powder brush
This is the best brush for use with my MSF! I love this brush! It is so soft and dense... <3
5. Ecotools blush brush
This is a really great brush for apply blush to the apple of my cheeks. I have been trying out a lot of blushes this past year and this is the perfect brush for it. It is really soft and dense enough to get a good application.
6. MAC Fresh Brew Lipstick
I more recently discovered Fresh Brew in my hunt for the perfect nude lip. I love the feel of this lipstick and the color is bomb for an instant nude lip...
7. NYX Megashine Lipgloss in Desert
This is my longtime love. I just love this color! It is hard to describe..it is as kind of taupe, purplish and even a bit greyish color. OK that was bad! I am not good at describing colors...lol. Any hoo just try it...you will love it if you like colors like this...I also love NYX Megashine lipglosses...they are very opaque and feel good on the lips..
8. Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Toffee Tango
I have really been loving all the Color Sensational lipsticks! They are so creamy and glide on nicely with a bit of sheen. Toffee Tango is a great everyday neutral brownish color...love it <3
9. Maybelline Full 'n Soft mascara in Very Black
This mascara has been around for a while, but I just recently discovered it's goodness! Great mascara for everyday..it gives my lashes volume and length without being too dramatic for everyday.
10. Stila Illuminating Finishing Powder in Rose Gold
Another product I just recently discovered, but this is the bomb.com! I love this for a nice highlight above the cheekbone. I will even layer this over a blush for a little extra oomph...It has very fine shimmer, but the trick is too apply it lightly or you could end up looking like a disco ball....
Well this is definitely a narrow down list. I have so many loves, but these were definitely my favorites and most reached for in 2010.
What were some of your favorites??
