Favourite new products of 2011

As we bid farewell to the year 2011, I want to list a couple of my favourite products that I started using in 2011 and will most definitely continue to use in 2012!

The items are mentioned, in random order

 

 

 

EUCERIN DERMOPURIFYER HYDRATING CARE


I just blogged about this recently and its a STAPLE right now! Few of my other makeupartist friends also were so intrigued by it when I showed it to them,that they went out to buy it too! I love this! I really do! For several reasons. Apart from being a moisturiser for even sensitive skin, it also works as a makeup base.

CHANEL ILLUSION D’OMBRE Long-Wear Luminous Eyeshadows


Ok I probably dont blog about this enough but this is by far my BEST purchase of 2011! SERIOUSLY!! Without fail, everytime I wear this out, I have atleats one person asking me what Im using cuz it has such a GORGEOUSSSSSSSSSSSS sparkle! I even made my bestfriend rush to the chanel counters and buy TWO cuz its SO PRETTY! and It may seem pretty expensive cuz its from Chanel but honestly, Ive been using it for MONTHS now and it has barely dipped! A tiny amount goes a LONG way and I must say this is a complete MUST-HAVE for anyone!

MAYBELLINE THE FALSIES Mascara


This was initially bought on a whim cuz Iliked the packaging but has now become one of my favs. Its still CRAZILY priced in Singapore at S$20.90 butyou can get it online for like just a couple of USD! Ok back to the mascara.. I LOVE IT! ♥

ESSENCE LONG LASTING Eyeliner


I think the man reason why I totally love this is because its DIRT CHEAP! A good pencil liner normally costs you $12 onwards but this waterproof and smudgeproof liner, costs less than S$5! I kid you not! I used it on few days back and it stayed on through out! No smudges! If you have oily skin, Id always encourage a little loose powder on your eyelids first before using any pencil or liquid liners.

CLARINS MULTI ACTIVE DAY Cream


I actually first used this in Perth. On my first day in Perth, I wokeup with a horrible tight feeling to my skin because it was a sudden drastic change in temperature. Was about 5 degree’s! I was staying at my bestfriends place and I complained to her about how DRY my skin felt and she asked me what creams I used and I gave her a blank stare…. Ive never been one to use moisturises etc! So she went straight to her cabinet and took out this tub of goodness and told me to start using it. And yes, from then on, this has been my go-to moisturiser. I apply it every day BEFORE I apply any makeup. and Ive already used up one tub and am onto my second because I enjoy the richness it has. and Im glad my bestfriend made me start using this cuz in the long run, I know, it will help my skin ♥

 

 

 

CHANEL Crease Brush


OH SO SOFTTTTTTT! seriously, I have well over 20 crease brushes but this is the SOFTEST and even after washing several times, it doesnt get dry, the bristles dont get poky! I love this. If it wasnt so ex, Id buy more!

LOREAL WHITE PERFECT PEARL BRUSH-ON WHITENING FOUNDATION


Probably one of the best drugstore foundations Ive used..and LOVED. It provides a nice medium coverage and it doesnt look washed out or dull, after a few hours. Ive been using this for a few months now and it hasnt showed any signs of finishing. I like the fact that it comes with a brush, because its convenient AND ALSO because you will not OVER APPLY. The brush always absorbs any excess.

L.A. GIRL PRO HD CONCEALER


I first ordered these online from CherryCulture.com many months back and its been a huge hit with many of my clients as it really conceals the darkest dark circles! and the best part was that its SO CHEAP, about USD3 each! But recently it launched in Singapore and is available at Selected SASA outlets, retailing at S$9. They didnt bring in the whole range of shades tho. I got all my shades from Cherryculture.com and I suggest you do too!

SIGMA PREMIUM PROFESSIONAL Brush Kit


When Sigma sent me this kit, I was thrilled! I was dying to try out more of Sigma’s brushes and this kit, totally made me a convert. I dont have ANY complains(so far) about the brushes. They dont shed on me. They are super soft. They do a brilliant job!

ELIZABETH ARDEN CERAMIDE GOLD ULTRA RESTORATIVE CAPSULES


Elizabeth Arden sent me a sample of these capsules and after they finished, I felt a slight difference in my under eyes. My lines were not as deep the next day. Though still very much there, I felt a difference. So I purchased a whole box of it myself and have been using it religiously each night. I see a slight difference in my under eye fine lines and hope to see even more difference once the whole box is finished!

 

 

WISHING EVERYONE A LOVELY BLESSED NEW YEAR!
and from the bottom of my heart, a heartfelt THANKYOU to everyone for the amazing support! I hope to share more beauty goodness with you in the upcoming year!
