Top Cosmetics of 2009

Currently at: my MIL's
Currently doing: watching Nan
Currently feeling: excited about going to the Leafs hockey game tonight!

Like last year, I have decided to compile a list of my favorite cosmetic products that I tried and loved during the year!

1.MAC Fix+. I use this mainly to moisturize my face before foundation, to wet my sponges, and to foil my eyeshadow.
2. MAC Studio Fix concealer. I have used this as a concealer, but I prefer to use it to cancel out pigmentation in my lips. It has a long staying power for that.
3. MAC MSF Natural. This is hands down the best powder I have ever used. It can be layered on to be a foundation or used lightly to set makeup. It just glides right on.
4. MAC Painterly Paint Pot. Words can't describe how much I love this as a base for eyeshadows. The colors pop amazingly when layered on top of this.
5. Coastal Scents 88 Matte Palette. You either love this or you hate it, I think. I personally love it. It's easy to travel with and I rarely hit pan on regular-sized eyeshadows so these are a good size for me.
6. Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin. This champagne-colored base adds a bit of shimmer and a slight change of color to eyeshadows. It can make a boring look pop and doubles your options!
7. Urban Decay eyeshadow in Sin. My favorite eyeshadow! Pairing this with the Sin UDPP is my go-to neutral look.
8. Rimmel London Long-Lasting Finish lipstick in Vintage. This is a really pretty pink and it's affordable. It's a win-win situation!
9. NARS blush in Orgasm. I'm always looking for new blushes to try, but I always go back to this one. I like to play with it and layer other blushes and highlighters on top. My favorites to layer it with right now are MAC's Porcelain Pink MSF or Maybelline's Dream Mousse blush in Peach Satin.
10. Maybelline Pulse Perfection mascara. I think this is another thing where you love it or hate it. This mascara curls, separates, and lengthens my lashes in a very short time.

FTC- The Maybelline Pulse Perfection mascara was sent to me months ago to try out and review for a company. My review of it is honest and based on personal opinion.
