top 5 face products of 2011
Over the first week of January I'll be covering my top 5 products of the previous year. I'll be covering skincare, face, eye shadow, other eye products, lips, cheeks and nails! Feel free to recommend me your top 2011 products in the comments!
L-R: MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural, Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer, Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer,
Benefit The POREfessional & Illamasqua Skinbase
Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer- I wanted this for ages and finally caved in towards the beginning of the year, . Its a great product but I always save it for special occasions as I go through it like there is no tomorrow! Its so creamy and easy to apply I find myself using alot more than I should!
Illamasqua Skin Base- (review here) Really loved this foundation this year, I actually bought it twice. Its the closet thing to a "holy grail" since Chanel decided to discontinue Mat Lumiere. It leaves a flawless smooth finish without a primer and best of all it doesnt have SPF, which is great for flash photography. Its always my go-to foundation on nights out as there is nothing worse than having a "ghost face". Again this had really mixed reactions within the blogging community, I loved it, but there was alot of people who didnt!
Collection 2000 Lasting Finish Concealer- (review here) Cheap and actually works! What more do you want! A highly praised concealer thats massive within the community, I couldnt not try it out to! Great coverage, long lasting, easy to apply and blend and best of all under a fiver!
Benefit the POREfessional- I still haven't got round to reviewing this properly, but its a outstanding product. I wasn't sure initially as I didnt quite understand what it did. I didnt notice my pores, until I stopped wearing it and was completely offended! Gives a silky smooth base that makes applying foundation easier applies very smoothly.
MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural- 100% Holy grail here, I don't apply my make up without it! Its the perfect powder for setting. I've shamelessly probably gone through one of these every months this year, But Im okay with that! Gives me a bit of colour and a flawless finish! Been using this product for years now and cant see it falling off the favourites list just yet!
Honourable Mentions: My all time favourite, now discontinued Chanel Mat Lumiere, MAC Matte, Collection 2000 Illuminating Touch Concealer, Rimmel Matte Powder.
