Best of 2011 - Face

and the award goes to...

Moisturizers & Base Products

1. Origins VitaZing SPF 15

After using this for a month or so, i found that my skin was much smoother and more even. I love the color changing magic, and i love the fact that it helps even out my skin without clogging any pores. Now, i only use this face product in the mornings, completely skipping foundation!

2. Clinique Moisture Surge - Extended Thirst Relief

For those needing an extra hydrating boost in the winter, this is the product you need! Not to be used as just a moisturizer, but as a final step to your skincare regime, this product helps protect and seal in your moisture keeping it safe from the pollutants and rough winds. This seriously makes my skin baby soft and keeps it nice and fresh during the winter season.

3. Shu Uemura UV Under Base Mousse

This is my HG skin primer. Using this under any foundation is bound to make it last forever and ever. This primer is very unique in that it comes in a mousse form just like your hair mousse would! THe result is a very light coat that gets absorbed very quickly. Plus, the one i have is also tinted so it also helps even out your skin tone.


1. Make Up For Ever Face & Body Foundation

For days & nights out when i want a little extra coverage, i go to my trusty MUFE foundation. This one is very light and a tad liquidy giving a nice refreshing hydrating feeling. Although this may be only light-medium coverage, i love how this feels and it definitely lasts all night long!

2. MAC MSF Natural

This is the perfect finish in that it helps even out my skin while absorbing all theexcess oils and keeping my skin nice and matte. I use a light dusting of this daily after my Origins VitaZing to give a little more coverage.

Blushes & Bronzers & Highlighters

1. L'oreal True Match in Innocent Flush

This is my favourite matte blush. Its hard to find a really good matte drugstore blush, but this is it guys! Super pigmented and super blendable, i really cant say anything bad about this blush! the texture is so soft and just a light tap of a brush picks up enough product because you only need so little to create such a gorgeous flush.

2. Hard Candy's Blush in Honeymoon

This might be more of a highlighter to most but for some it can pass as a blush. I like to use this on the tops of my cheekbones because it gives the most gorgeous soft glow.

3. Annabelle's Zebra Bronzing Powder

I love this bronzer because it is really subtle but does its job well. It has some fine glitter which is very flattering on the skin. I love using this to contour my cheekbones as well as my temples because it gives a very natural and soft edge.


and that's it for face products! Let me know if you have tried out some of these products before and what you think! Of if you know of any better ones because im always up for trying something new! :D Have a good day everyone!

P.S. i fixed the link to the form for giveaway #2. the form should also appear on the post now. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes!
