I have discovered so many great new beauty products this year - some new, some tried and true, but new to me - that I am having such a difficult time narrowing down my "Favorite Things" list for the year.
One thing that I can easily add to the list is you, my faithful and loyal readers. Without you, there would be no beauty blog - and I would have no other way to show and express my joys of beauty searching. So to you all, I thank you for your continued support.
Onto the list. Here I present My Favorite Things 2006.
- Smashbox Photofinish Primer - I don't know what took me so long, but I cannot live without this now.
- Tarte Cosmetic's Lights. Camera, Lashes! Mascara - I think this is my hg mascara find.
- Bare Escentuals Get Started Kit - a great kit to get started with BareMinerals, and I am happy to have finally become a BEliever.
- Benefit Cosmetics Weather Girl Palette - I take this out to use at least twice a week - lovin' it!
- Lancome Flash Retouche Concealer - I use this daily to cover and brighten my under eye area.
- BourJois Lip Gloss Cell Phone Charm - the cutest and best accessory ever!
- Clinique Brush On Cream Eye liner - so easy to use and blend - and stay on all day!
- MAC's Holiday Velvet Smoked Eye Shadow Palette - the perfect combination of shadows I use almost daily.
- Bliss Spiff Upper Lip - I use this twice a day to fill in lines, plump my lips, and stop hair growth.
- Cle de Peau La Creme - the most luxurious moisturizing cream e-v-e-r!
- DuWop Revolotion Face - a tinted moisturizer that lightens, brightens, and covers.
- ModelCo Tan Airbrush in a Can - the best body self-tanner I have ever tried.
- Philosophy's Purity Cleanser - I don't think I will ever use anything else to cleanse and freshen.
- Essie Nail Polishes - too many to name, but they continue to work the best for me.
- Estee Lauder High Gloss Lip Gloss - a lip gloss fave that I have multiples of.
- Tom Ford - the fragrance, the man, and the collections - can't wait to see what will come from him next year.
