Instead of doing a December favorites post, I thought I would share my favorite products of 2011. I have quite a few products to share with you, everything from eyes, lips and face products to perfumes and a nail product that i have been loving a lot :)
I hope you enjoy my post and if you have done a favorite products of 2011 post or even a December favorites post, please feel free to post your link in the comments below, I would love to read it :)
♥ The Naked Palette from Urban Decay.
This is probably the most used eyeshadow palette that I own along with the Alice in Wonderland Book Of Shadows by Urban Decay. I absolutely love this palette, it has all the eyeshadows you need to create beautiful neutral makeup looks. I definitely recommend that you try out this palette if you haven't already, I know you will love it as much as I do :)
♥ The F80 and E25 brush by Sigma Beauty.
These brushes are my all time favorite makeup brushes. I use the F80 everyday to apply my liquid foundation, its perfect and it blends out the foundation perfectly. The E25 is my favorite eyeshadow blending brush, its amazing :)
♥ Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua, NYX HD Photogenic Concealer and NYX blush in Angel.
The Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation has to be the best foundation that I have tried. Its not a full coverage founation but it gives you the most natural looking finish and I love how it smells as well, so amazing.
The NYX HD Photogenic Concealer is the best concealer that I have tried so far. I have been looking for good concealers that has a good coverage and this does an amazing job covering up everything. Its a medium to full coverage concealer that I highly recommend. The NYX blush in Angel has been in many of my favorite product posts and it didn't come as a shock to me that its a part of my favorite products of 2011 :)
♥ MAC MSF in Soft and Gentle.
This is my favorite highlighter that I own. I use this everyday to highlight my cheekbones and the bridge of my nose, I just can't get enough of this product.
♥ Elf Complexion Perfection.
Im not the biggest fan of this product but I really love using the yellow tone to set my concealer, I find that it does a really good job doing that. Thats the only thing I use this product for :)
♥ MAC eyeshadow in All That Glitters, Wet n' Wild eyeshadow trio in Silent Treatment, MAC paint pot in Bare Study and NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk.
All That Glitters is one of my all time favorite eyeshadows from MAC, I absolutely love it. If you are new to MAC eyeshadows, this is definitely one of the colors you should try first. Im a huge fan of the Wet n' Wild eyeshadow trios, especially Silent Treatment. I have read that the Eyelid color in this trio is a good dupe for MAC's Satin Taupe which I also love. I might do a comparison between the two and see how similar they really are.
I absolutely love the paint posts from MAC, sadly I only own two. Bare Study is one of those paint pots that are amazing on its own and as a eyeshadow base. I love to use Bare Study on its own with some black eyeliner and mascara, its such an easy makeup look that is perfect for those days that you dont have much time to do your makeup. NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk is a product that I use very often. I love to use this on the lids before applying an eyeshadow to make the eyeshadow pop and also in the inner corner to brighten up the eyes :)
♥ Elf mineral eyeshadow primer, L'oreal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara, Lancome Hypnose Mascara and Smashbox Black & White eyeliner.
The Elf mineral eyeshadow primer is my favorite eyeshadow primer. Its so affordable and it makes your eyeshadow last all day. I think its even better than the Urban Decay primer potion. If you haven't tried anything from Elf, I recommend that you check out this primer.
The L'oreal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara and the Lancome Hypnose Mascara is two mascaras that I use all the time. I actually got the Lancome Hypnose Mascara in one of my favorite magazines and I love it so much that I want to get the full size product. The white eyeliner from the Black & White Eyeliner byy Smashbox is my favorite as well. I love using it on my waterline, it really open up my eyes and makes me look more awake :)
♥ EOS Lipbalm in Summer Fruit and Wet n' Wild Juicy Lipbalm in Strawberry Fraise.
One thing that I need to have with me at all times are my lipbalms. I hate the feeling of dry lips and since the Winters in Norway are really cold, they are a must have. These are two of my favorite lipbalms at the moment. The EOS Lipbalm in Summer Fruit is my all time favorite lipbalm and I have gone through many of these since I first came across it.
The Wet n' Wild Juicy Lipbalm in Strawberry Fraise was sent to me by the lovely Kayla from zombiegirlcooks. This feels so moisturising on the lips, love this product :)
♥ Elf Luscious Liquid Lipsticks in Rasberry & Baby Lips and Elf Hypershine Gloss in Sugar Plum.
Im a big fan of the Luscious Liquid Lipsticks and the Hypershine Glosses from Elf Cosmetics. These are not that sticky and the color pigmentation is really good. These are definitely worth a shot and they are so affordable.
♥ L'oreal Paris Lipstick in Fairest Nude and Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Toast To Shine.
Fairest Nude by L'Oreal Paris is my favorite lipstick, its the perfect nude lipstick if you ask me. I just have to thank the lovely Sonia aka sccastaneda on youtube for mentioning this lipstick in her videos, I dont think I would have discovered this lovely product if it wasn't for her :)
I love using the Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Toast To Shine on top of Fairest Nude, it gives it such a glossy and beautiful look. The Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Glosses are amazing and if you are on a hunt for lip glosses that are not sticky at all, you should try these :)
♥ Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.
This is definitely the best top coat that I have tried. I love how it makes my nail polishes look and it only takes 20 seconds to dry which is amazing :)
♥ Gucci Envy Me, Beyonce Heat and Britney Spears Fantasy.
I love perfumes, I can't seem to get enough of them haha. These are the three perfumes that I have been using a lot this year. Fantasy by Britney Spears reminds me a lot of the Hand Foot cream by Soap and Glory, it smells amazing, just like candy and marshmallows. Envy Me by Gucci has a clean smell and its probably my favorite out of these three perfumes. Heat by Beyonce is musky and sweet at the same time. Definitely check out these perfumes the next time you are looking for something new to try, you might like these a lot :)
Which products have you been loving this year? :)
