2011 favourites!! #12 - lip liners!!

 HELLO GUYS!!
Instead of doing a single post showing you a list of products that I really enjoyed throughout 2011,
I have decided to do a number of posts showing you my favourite products and telling you a little something about them :)
NYX slim lip liner in natural 
This is a medium peachy brown lip liner.
You can go ahead and watch my video right below to see this product in action.. 
I only use this to outline the lips, I don't apply it all over, but I attached a photo with how it would look like if worn all over:

ELF mineral lip liner in peachy 
This is a gorgeous corally peachy orangey shade. 
I LOVE this lip liner, 
awesome texture.. 
this is the only lip liner of which I have a back up,
I use this all over the lip because the texture's so darn soft. 
And I attached a photo for you to see how it looks like when used in a particular look :)


 


That's it for this post :) 
Thank you so much for reading 
and stay tuned for the next 2011 product favourite posts :)
Let me know below..

2011 favourites!! #10 - foundation!!


HELLO GUYS!!
Instead of doing a single post showing you a list of products that I really enjoyed throughout 2011,
I have decided to do a number of posts showing you my favourite products and telling you a little something about them :)


First of all I have a video featuring this product right here:
my favourite and HG foundation is the NYX HD FOUNDATION!!
and I'll tell you briefly why..

NYX HD photogenic foundation in 04 sand beige, 07 warm sand


NYX HD photogenic foundation in 04 sand beige, 07 warm sand


I first got this foundation in shade 
# 07 warm sand 

but then I realised it was a shade or two too dark, 
and I got myself a lighter one to mix it with. 
and I got #04 sand beige. 

Warm sand has strong yellow undertones.
Sand Beige is more of a neutral with slight yellow undertones. 



You can check out swatches of ALL NYX HD foundation:

2011 favourites!! #8 - eyebrow products!!

HELLO GUYS!!
Instead of doing a single post showing you a list of products that I really enjoyed throughout 2011, 
I have decided to do a number of posts showing you my favourite products and telling you a little something about them :)

First of all, I have a video tutorial on how I fill in my eyebrows using the following items,
so if you wish,
check that out below :)



ELF's eyebrow kit in light
I also have the shades ash and medium,
but this one suits me best
LOVE THIS product.
It may not work for everyone though,
since it's a combination of wax and powder and
if you have sparse lashes,
wax won't apply to your eyebrow area







ELF wet gloss lash and brow mascara
This is seriously amazing. 
I use both sides for my brows,
It sets my brows and keeps them in place and set all day. 
I tend to use it over ELF's eyebrow kit 
and when I do this, 
my brows look less powdery. 



Wearing both products in this photo :)







That's it for this post :)

2011 favourites!! #7 - mascaras !!

HELLO GUYS!!
Instead of doing a single post showing you a list of products that I really enjoyed throughout 2011, 
I have decided to do a number of posts showing you my favourite products and telling you a little something about them :)


Mascaras are probably the most purchased make up product, 
yet we all find that it is so HARD to find a really good mascara.
Story of my life.. 
oh well.

A cute follower of my blog called me
"the picky one with mascaras" one day. 
Haha. 
I LOVE THAT.
Because I really am. 

I'm probably quite picky with my lip products, foundation, concealer, blush, 
well basically on everything. 
But Mascaras happen to be the one thing that are very hard to please me. 
Mascaras get quite low ranking on my blog reviews, 
because I'm such a pain to please. 

But. 
I'm quite simple..
I like- VOLUME. and yes, I love clumpy lashes and fake looking ones. 
[NOT the I can't open my eyes kind of false lashes look]
But just Volume. 
I like. CRAZY length
WATERPROOF formula
NO flaking
awesome CURL
LASTING POWER
and the BLACKEST BLACK possible.  
Simple, right?

Apparently, not. 
Because 
NO mascara has ever fit THOSE standards hehe. 
and probably never will..
but I'll always be on the hunt :D

Anyway. 
I have 3 mascaras I have been enjoying this year. 


Max Factor's Volume and Lift Mascara has blew my mind in terms of lift. 
I have never encountered a mascara that lifts my stick straight lashes like this one.






 

Bourjois's Volume and Rotating Mascara has really impressed me in terms of volume, it clumps up my lashes but making them look more voluminous.. so this is another one I have been enjoying.





L'Oreal's Voluminous Mascara has been quite impressive in terms of length. I have to say, this mascara was  a BIG disappointment at first because it was too wet for my lashes, but as it dried out, it worked perfectly.



That's it for this post :) 
Thank you so much for reading 
and stay tuned for the next 2011 product favourite posts :)
Let me know below..
