2011 Favourites

by - Monday, January 09, 2012

I've been thinking for a week now of what my favourites for the whole year have been. I am kinda stumped. I am going to break everything down by category to make it easier.

Skin Care:
  • L'oreal Youth Code Serum - I love this stuff. I have gone through 3 of them since discovering it.
  • L'oreal Youth Code Day Lotion - I have used 2 of these up this year. I will get more once I use up some of my already opened lotions.
  • Origins Clean Energy Cleansing Oil - I have always loved Mac Cleanse Off Oil, but this just is better. It seems to last forever too, so I will be using it for a long, long time.
  • Marcelle Soothing Cleansing Water - I love how this removes anything on your face with no need to rinse. I have replaced wipes with this and cotton pads. So amazing.
  • Bath and Body Works Forever Sunshine Creamy Body Wash - I fell in love with this smell this summer. I even got the perfume, cream and body spray. I love it.
  • Bath and Body Works Butterfly Flower Creamy Body Wash/Bubble Bath and Body Wash - I discovered the BBW outlet this year and loaded up on this discontinued item. I even have room spray and burning oil in this fragrance. I was drawn to it because of the butterfly in the name, but fell in love with the smell.
  • Mark Ibiza Sol - I love this aqua summery scent. Love it.
  • Bath and Body Works Forever Sunshine - As I said, I love the smell of this scent.
  • EOS Lip Balm - I found this as a fluke, and I love it, not too thick, not too heavy, but really effective and great smelling.
  • Revlon Lip Butters - I got Cupcake a few weeks ago on sale, and I wish I had gotten more. So nice and moisturizing with lots of colour
  • Tarte LipSurgence - I picked up a few of these in a few different sets this winter. Even though some are Natural Lip Tints and some are Natural Lip Lusters, I like them all the same. A great lip product for sure.
  • L'oreal La Couleur Infallible Eyeshadow - I love these shadows, they are amazing. Creamy, but a powder, loose but pressed at the same time. Simply amazing.
  • Buxom Stay There Shadows - With dog breed names how could I not love these. They actually are amazing to use, have great pigmentation, come in quite a few great colours and are long lasting. 
  • Avon Smooth Minerals Mascara - This mascara wand is like an hour glass so it catches all the lashes all at one. As well the formula leaves your lashes super soft and very full.
  • Physicians Formula Eye Booster 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum - best eyeliner ever! Unlike felt tipped ones, this one has a very fine brush that never gets ruined. As well when you shake it you will hear there is lots and lots of liner inside it, unlike others that dry up in less than a few weeks.
Face Makeup:
  • Elf Studio Foundation - I am shocked at how much I love this foundation. My only regret is not getting two.
  • MoroccanOil - Big shock here, doesn't everyone love it? 
  • L'oreal Total Repair 5 Mask - I love this mask...My hair always feels amazing when it is done.
  • L'oreal Total Repair 5 Leave-in Conditioner - This has to be the best leave in conditioner spray out there. It leaves my hair extra soft, detangles and doesn't weight it down.
  • GHD Iron - I love this flat iron. I never thought I would find something that just worked after one pass.
