2011 is a year where I think I went even crazier about beauty products than I ever have before. My makeup collection seems to have grown considerably over the last year. In this post I will show you my favourite cosmetics of the last year. I picked the products I use the most and love. Here is what made my list J
Urban Decay’s Book of Shadows IV - As a lover of Urban Decay palettes, I was trilled when I received this as a gift for my Birthday. The colours are amazing and as usual are really pigmented. It also comes with speakers and QR codes for those who love their gadgets. For a full review click Here!
MUA Professional Heaven and Earth Palette - I had been lusting after this palette for ages so I picked one up while visiting my parents in London. This Palette is AMAZING for the price! It's only £4 and is so pigmented and is full of amazing neutral colours. I wear this a lot to work and love it. I would definitely recommend everyone to snatch up this little bargain!
MUA Professional Extreme Curl Mascara - This is not only my favourite mascara of the year but my favourite mascara I have ever used! I LOVE it! It makes my tiny eyelashes look really long. I even got asked was I wearing false eyelashes and that has never happened before at all! It is also a bargain at £2.50. Unfortunately you can't get the MUA range in Ireland but I think there website is starting international delivery so check it out!
Accessorize Merged Baked Blusher 'Sensation' - I picked up this beauty in London in Superdrug I think it was about £5? I had never tried Accessorize make-up before as again it's not available in Ireland :( (come on Superdrug Irish girls are missing out!!) This is a gorgeous pink blusher (It looks more orange in the photo. The first photo is a better indicator of it's true colour.) What I love about this blush is that it gives the face a lovely glow and has bits of shimmer which give a lovely highlight. I will definitely be picking up more from this range during my next visit to my parents.
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer -
This is truly a fantastic concealer. It's not too expensive at about €6.50. I have it in the lightest shade and it suits my Irish skin perfectly. I usually find this really difficult! It very creamy and blends so well. It covers everything from redness, blemishes to dark circles. Amazing product! Well done Collection 2000!
Benefit - High Beam - I got this product free with Glamour magazine and fell in love with it! It is the most beautiful highlighter I have ever tried. It really brightens my face and is so easy to blend! I will be devastated when this runs out as it is quite expensive to purchase. I have seen however what might be a dupe which I am going to buy.... Look out for a review soon! :)
Kate Moss Rimmel - The shade that I love is the colour 08. This is a fantastic neutral lipstick that I wear to work. It's really wearable and moisturising. For a full review and swatches click Here!
17 Lasting Fix Lipstick - This lipstick has to be my favourite lipstick of the year! I Have two shades 'Pink Power' (I think it's power pink... the label is no longer on the lipstick) and 'Showbiz'. Pink Power is a stunning pink that looks beautiful on the lips. Showbiz is a gorgeous red I wear on nights out. (also sometimes during the day when I feel brave!) I have received loads of compliments while wearing both shades. Both feel moisturising, creamy and don't dry out my lips. They also last a long time and don't wear off in patches which I hate! Fantastic Lipsticks :) !
