2010 Favourites

By Saturday, January 01, 2011

2010 brought a lot of new products into my life, some I love, some I like and some I hate with passion. Here are some of the ones that stood out as my favourites in 2010.

Avon SuperExtend Mascara
Visibly lengthens lashes up to 55%. Innovative stretch-formula with unique triangular-shape fibers lenthen lashes beyond belief…with a sleek, shiny, super-sexy finish. Waterproof formula is super-easy to remove. .247 oz. net wt. -Avon.com
Not really promoted as waterproof, but it is, one of the best waterproof I have ever used. It doesn't flake or crumble or even smudge. It lengthens like it claims and come in a few shades.This is the first mascara that I have ever used up before the 3 month period was up. I use it every work day and love it.

Cargo Triple Action Macara:
Innovation is always key. Using the latest technology in pigments and styling polymers, we have been able to create a triple action mascara that thickens, lengthens, and curls all in one. It's like your favorite 3 mascaras in 1! -ulta.com
This has the exact same brush as the Avon SuperExtend, which I love. I never thought a mascara would curl my lashes, but this does! This is my go to mascara when I am not working (otherwise it is the Avon, I NEED waterproof for work).

CoverFx Mint Glaze Fx:
A protective, fortifying and freshening glazed balm to maintain youthful lips  It is a pout perfecting primer that hydrates & softens the appearance of lines -coverfx.com
If you need a lip primer, this is it. Tacky, but in a good way, this stuff makes your lipstick stick! As well as moisturizing your lips and making them tingle too. Amazing stuff, I just can't get enough of it. Oh and it has an spf, what more can a gal ask for.
Vasanti Tinted Lip Balm:
More like a sheer lipstick, this is a fantastic lip balm that give a big kick of colour. Keeping your lips healthy and looking great at the same time. I love Grenada and Colombia. 

Fruits and Passion Body Butter in Shea:
Shea butter, known for its exceptional benefits, provides intense moisturizing for up to 24 hours and is ideal for use on sensitive skin. This Nourishing Butter for the body has a velvety texture and restores moisture to dry or dehydrated skin, leaving it looking smooth and firm. -fruitsandpassion.com
This is the richest body butter ever. I mean it is thick. I love how it nourishes even the driest patches of skin quickly and without leaving you greasy.

Makeup Forever Elixir:
An innovative serum that instantly hydrates and adds radiance to the skin.The breakthrough formula contains D-Panthenol and Glycerin to ensure an immediate boost of hydration (+520% after 15 minutes) that lasts throughout the day (+175% after 6 hours). - sephora.com
I am using it every day now. It really helps take any dry flakiness away from you skin. As well it helps keep your skin moist all day, without adding weight or grease to the skin. My skin if frequently dehydrated, even in the summer, this is the only thing that gets me through periods like that.
