My Top 10 Beauties Of 2011

Hello, everyone!

It's 10 days into the New Year but I am already up to my neck with so many matters to attend to.

I have not done any post on my favorite beauty products of the year before. I don't know why but I think the main reason is that I just couldn't pick out my favorites. There are just too many! ;)

So, for 2011, the top 10 beauty products that I love, though not necessarily that I have used them, are, in random order.......

1. Chanel Illusion D'ombre Luminous Long Wear Eyeshadows - I have Epatant and Illusoire.

2. Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Colors

3. MAC Pro Longwear Eyeshadows

4. Make Up Academy eyeshadow palettes

5. Make Up Academy nail polish #14 - a bright blood red which is almost opaque in one coat.

6. Famous by Sue Moxley Festival eyeshadow palette

7. Sleek Aruba blush and Curacao eyeshadow palette

8. Rimmel London Union Jack eyeshadow palettes

9. Estee Lauder Lavish Pink lipstick - this one is a limited edition that comes with the Estee Lauder Breat Cancer Awareness set last year.

10. Guerlain Meteorites in Mythic



For the products that I have reviewed or featured, there are links to those posts.

Any of the above happens to be your favorite too?

Happy 2012! Some Resolutions...... Yet Some Lemmings

Hello my dear readers!

A very Happy New Year to you. Hope you have had a great year-end break and ready to face the new year. I am still blogging from my iPad, frustrating, cos I can't put up photos, but please bear with me a little longer. Besides, work is catching up quite a bit, oh well, quite a lot actually.

I didn't give resolutions much thought last year, but one thing is for sure, I will TRY to go on a make NO-BUY this year.... But knowing myself, sigh, I will fail big time. So I will limit myself to at least, 2 makeup purchase per month, as in 2 makeup products, if I really really couldn't resist the itch and urge for retail therapy!

Anyways, my latest lemmings are Estee Lauder Cyber Eyes eyeshadows in Cyber Teal and Cyber Lilac; and Dior Spring 2012 Garden Pastels and Garden Roses eyeshadow quints. Cyber Teal and Cyber Lilac seem to have sold out online, but I think one of them is still on Estee Lauder UK website. The Dior quints are already out in Selfridges, but will be available nationwide from 16th January. So I thought of waiting to get them at Debenhams since I have their Beauty Card. That is if I manage to go there before they are sold out!

And I want more Tom Ford and Suqqu eyeshadow palettes for sure!

Guess this year, I will go more for the quality of the products than quantity.

And I also hope to be able to have my Greek islands holiday this year....... :)


So what are your resolutions for 2012, need not have to be beauty-related? :)

What plans do you have for this year? ;) I am just being nosy. :P
