2010 Favourites of the Year!

A bunch of you voted saying you'd like to see my favourites from 2010 so here they are! If you want to know more about any particular thing leave me a comment and I'll either answer or I'll bump the item up on the reviewing schedule!

Runner-up Note: The only reason some of these have Runner ups is because they almost were the favourites themselves they were that close! I tried not to do a runner up unless it was a realllllly tough choice!

Eye Favourites (Excluding Eyeshadow)

Pencil Eyeliner: Mac Chromographic NC15/NW20 Pencil Link to Review
Gel Eyeliner: Mac Rich Ground Fluidline Link to Review

Eyeshadow Favourites (By Colour)

Purple: Urban Decay Ecstasy
Pink: Mac Petalescent (This may have been Limited Edition I have it in an old palette- it's also the only light pink I own so it was kind of a given for this spot)

Orange: Nars Cheyenne Duo (Left Side) Link to Review
Burgundy: Nars Cheyenne Duo (Right Side) Link to Review
Brown: Stila Eden
Nude/Skintone: Wet n' Wild Color Icon Single in Brule (I'm a pale NC10- NC15, a darker skintone may match my brown favourite or even darker would probably suit a different colour. Please let me know your favourite skintone eyeshadow is! There are so many different skintones out there so it would be interesting to see what others use as their skintone/nude shade.) Link to Swatch

Things I'm still on the Hunt for!

  •        Moisturizer with a decent amount of SPF in it that also feels nice on
  •        Powder highlight I’ll actually use on a semi-regular basis
  •        Green lippie of some sort, because there aren’t any currently and I want to do a Forest Sprite/Nymph look (yes, I know I’m kinda crazy) Also a green polish I actually love!
  •       Something to get rid of blackheads and make my acne completely disappear
  •        Auburn eyebrow wax (that won’t cause acne flair ups!)
  •        Undereye gel/cream that will help prevent wrinkles and help fade my dark circles!
