2010 Favorites

I spent most of 2010 being pregnant so with that being said, all the splurging on makeup nonsense had to be put on hiatus for awhile. Besides, I was too lazy to get up and really do anything. So my 2010 list is rather dull and short...

Lip Products

I absolutely love my NYX megashine lipgloss in Smokey Look. I own quite a few of the megashine lipglosses and this one happens to be my favorite. It's a beautiful pinkish coral color with specks of sparkle. It's very lovely, especially when applied over a pink or nude lipstick. Another lip product I loved a lot last year is the N.Y.C Lip Slider Tinted Lip Balm. For about 3 dollars a piece, these things are quite awesome. They feel thick and tacky at first but when applied to the lips, they become nice and smooth. They're moisturizing as well. I really like these.

Eye Products

Let's start with the mascara that I've loved for probably more than 2010; the Rimmel Glam'eyes mascara in extreme black. Although the formula in the tube dries out quite fast, this mascara does amazing things to my lashes. As thin and sparse as my lashes are, this mascara is still able to volumize and separate them rather nicely. I've been trying a lot of different mascaras lately but always find myself going back to this specific one all the time.
An eyeshadow I find myself reaching for almost all the time is my MAC eyeshadow in Cork. I love this color! It's a really nice brown color that sits beautifully in the crease of my eyelids. I've also been loving my MAC pigments in Blonde's Gold and Naked. Naked is a slightly pinkish nude color with slight sparkles and Blonde's Gold is a champagne color with gold sparkles. Both colors are lovely. I'll have pictures up as soon as I find the charger to my camera. LOLz. Last eye product I'm going to mention is the Revlon Illuminance Cream Shadows. I own about four of these and I love them all. My favorite would probably have to be the Precious Metals one. They make an awesome base color. But most of them sit beautifully alone. My boyfriend says they bring out my eyes =)

Face Products
I only have three favorite face products. I'm in the process of finding a better foundation as well as concealer, so I'll leave those out. After finishing my Merlot Grape Vine Moisturizer, I felt like I needed to try something different so I went back to an old favorite of mines; Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer. I swear I haven't had a pimple since using this! (well, maybe only one) I think I'll stick to this moisturizer for now on but who knows..I never really stick to the same ol thing. A true beauty addict always likes to explore new things. A favorite blush (one that I've recently only discovered) is my MAC powder blush in Well Dressed. It's a soft baby pink color. I feel so pretty when I wear this blush; enough said ^_^. hahah. Another face product I love a lot in 2010 is my MAC bronzing powder in Refined Golden. Actually, this is probably my favorite bronzer of all time. Yeah, it's THAT great.

That's about it for now...As mentioned before, I'll provide pictures as soon as I can find my camera charger. But as of right now, I'm all out of time. My newborn is calling for her mommy =) ...byyyye

I can't wait to try the RImmel ones! It's a shame that it dries out so quickly though. :s

Have you tried Orgasm by NARS? It's my favorite one! :)

I can't believe you have a son already! You look great! :)
