Favorite Products of 2010

I always do my top products of the past year list when another year begins and this year has been the hardest to pinpoint items. I have found so many great products and narrowing them down was not an easy task. I limited myself to only add ten products to the list, but you can get a good idea of more items that I loved throughout the year by looking at my monthly favorites under my "favorites" tag. :)

These made this special list because they are products that I use nearly on an everyday basis. They made my little beauty world complete this year. With that said, I can't wait to see what new products I find this year and to see if they are worthy enough to add to my version of this list at year's end!

1. MAC Cleanse Off Oil- Review is here. This does wonders at removing makeup and is very gentle on the skin. You still want to wash your face afterward, because this doesn't replace that step.

2. MAC Viva Glam Gaga lipstick- Swatches are here. This is definitely not a lipstick shade for everyone, but I love it.

3. MAC MSF Natural- Small review is here. I can count on one hand the times I've gone without wearing this. I literally reach for it every time I do my makeup.

4. Urban Decay Naked Palette- Review/swatches are here. I've talked about this so many times and I know it is hard to get. I heard they are back in stock on and they are bringing out more everywhere else soon.

5. Korres Lip Butters- Review is here. I have Guava, Pomegranate, Mango, and Jasmine. Jasmine is probably my favorite. It's a light pink and I find that the smell reminds me of brown sugar. So if you like sweet scents, I recommend it.

6. MAC Studio Finish concealer- Review is here. My favorite concealer ever. And it lasts so long. Mine has a huge dip in it and I still haven't hit pan.

7. Make Up For Ever HD foundation- No review yet, because it's one of my newer purchases toward the end of the year. I have absolutely fallen in love with it and I now understand all of the hype.

8. OCC Lip Tars- Review is here. These are some of the best lip colors out there. One small drop can cover your lips with full opaque color. And you can mix them to create your own colors.

9. NARS Laguna bronzer- I just realized I haven't reviewed this fully yet. I plan on comparing this and Orgasm to the ELF version. This is the perfect bronzer for my pale skin. There is slight shimmer, but it doesn't show up glittery on your face. It just adds a nice glow.

10. Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner pencils- I have quite a few of these, but my absolute go-tos are Rockstar, Zero, and Stash. With a little bit of translucent powder over these, they last for hours without smudging on my eyes/waterline.

Revlon ColorStay foundation, CoverGirl LashBlast mascara, MAC Hang Loose blush duo, Maybelline EyeStudio gel liner, and Benefit High Beam. I totally should have made this list top 15, because they would all be on there too!

So what would be on your list? Did you find a holy grail product last year? Let me know in the comments or make your own list and link me to it. :)

love the little polyvore posts that you make, so cute. Agree with many of them, I replaced MUFE HD with Face and Body though. And one of my favourite discoveries of last year was the Bobbi Brown corrector in Light Bisque, great for under the eyes.

@Justine- Oooh, I'll have to try the Bobbi Brown corrector! I don't think I own anything Bobbi Brown, aside from a couple of her books. :)

@Kim- You are going to LOVE it. I don't think I've heard of anyone who doesn't!

@Terri- Ok, super jealous that you have an iPad! At first I didn't want one, but the fact that you can do so much on it completely won me over. :)
