2010 Favourites - Beauty Reflection ~! ♥

Credit: makeupandbeautyblog.com

I wasn't actually tagged to do this, but I stole this tag from MACKarrie. I thought this would be a useful set of questions that I can use to reflect on beauty-related things that I have found and done in the last year 2010. I also provided links to my original reviews of the products mentioned, so I hope this post will be useful! ♥

1. Which lipstick / lip gloss did you use most often in 2010?
MAC Dressmaker, Dressmaker lipstick. It provides the most gorgeous complexion-brightening peachy flush!

2. What was your favorite eye shadow this year?

In terms of the Most Used eyeshadow, I feel that this is MAC Cork eyeshadow, which is a good versatile crease colour.
In terms of the Eyeshadow that I loved the most, it would be MAC Tissue Weight eyeshadow as it provides such a beautiful understated glow to the eyes. It is lovely to use on the lid, as highlight, or on the lower lash line. It makes my eyes seem brighter when I wear it!

3. What product for the complexion (Foundation, blush, etc.) did you use the most?

MAC Face and Body foundation. I mix this everyday with my Aveeno SPF30 moisturiser to make my own tinted moisturiser for the face and neck.

4. Your favorite nail polish color of 2010?

Skin Food Pedicure Sparkle Sparkly Nude Nail Polish 
(awfully difficult to photograph! But it is pretty in real life)

5. Which skin care product would you not want to give up under any circumstances?

My Aveeno Ultra Calming Daily Moisturising Lotion with SPF30. This minimises any visible redness on my face and also gives me my must-have SPF30!

6. What was your favorite personal care product?  

Curel Ultra Healing Moisture Lotion. This is probably one of the best face moisturisers out there. It smells great, dries quickly, and leaves my skin so soft and well hydrated. It doesn't break me out too!

7. Your usually worn fragrance in 2010?

Miss Dior Cherie Perfume

8. What was your personal favorite jeweller
9ct White Gold Created Pink Sapphire and Diamond Open Heart
White Gold Necklace with a Baby Pink Sapphire and Diamond Heart pendant given by my boyfriend 3 years ago! I still wear it everyday. It has a heart pendant with a smaller pink crystal heart in the middle. It reminds me so much of the Legend of Zelda heart containers. (I'm such a geek- Haha!)

9. What have you discovered in 2010 that is new for you (new products, inspiration, blogs or hobbies, etc.)?

The wonders of the MAC 224 brush to blend out eyeshadow. I can't believe I didn't discover this sooner! I only used to use it to apply concealer before.

10. Do you have resolutions for 2011 and if so, what are they?
My beauty resolution for 2011 is to only buy colours I don't have (and only if they suite me!). I am sometimes lured by products because of their packaging and catchy names, and I also try to be too adventurous sometimes with buying makeup that I actually won't wear outside my room. I hope that these products wont fool me anymore! ♥

11. Tag other people :)

  1. Great new year's resolution. I try to do that anyway, not that it works every time xD

    I love Dressmaker, Dressmaker too! I don't have Tissue Weight though would love to try it. I guess you really love the Pret-a-papier collection huh?

  2. @reeree- Yeah its so hard to stick to that resolution. I keep making excuses to buy new things! and yes, I do love the Pret a Papier collection a lot! Its because of that collection that I realised my love for peach :)

  3. I used Cork e/s a lot for the crease too. I actually included it in my 2010 favorites :)

  4. Nice tag! I love both the 224 brush and Cork es :) x

  5. I must buy Cork e/s! And the lipstick color looks beautiful.

  6. Happy New Year!!!
