Best and worst of 2009

I know it's now the 7th of January (ooooh I'll turn 26 in 3 days...I feel old!), but I really wanted to have my take on the best and the worst of *sighs* LAST year.


Best Make-up Brand: definitely Sleek MakeUP! Great discovery: amazing quality for such a small price, huge color range, lots of different products. The only downside is...I can't really have access to it unless I go to London!

Best Skincare Brand and Products: the Normaderm range from Vichy

Best Foundation: Dior's Diorskin Nude & Pupa Smart Skin

Best Blusher: Sleek Blush in Flamingo*

Best Eyebrow product: e.l.f. studio eyebrow kit

Best Eyeshadow: Hard one, I love so many...Misdemeanor from Urban Decay, the whole Sleek Storm palette, Plumsmoke from Elizabeth Arden, Pupa Lumynis baked eyeshadow in 04 Purple( LE), and the whole Nature Temptations palette from Clarins

Best Eye Primer: e.l.f. eye primer (I'd choose this over UDPP any day!)

Best Eye Liner: Shiseido Accentuating Cream Eyeliner (comes with a very good mini brush)

Best Mascara: Rimmel Sexy Curves in Intense Black, and Max Factor False Lash Effect (review to come soon)

Best Lipgloss: Dior Addict Ultra-gloss in 873 (although I hate how the packaging leaks so you can't bring it in your purse)*

Best Lipstick: Rimmel Long Lasting Finish Lipstick in Tempting (the most gorgeous black)

Best Lip combo: Debby Lip Pencil in 6, Gosh Darling lipstick, and two drops of MAC lipglass in Languish* over it (smack the lips together and you'll see a wonderful color!)

Best Nail varnish: Rimmel Lycra Pro


Fortunately, I don't have a worst for all the above categories, but I have some.

Worst Skin Products: Clinique Dramatically Different Lotion

Worst Nail Varnish: Rimmel 60 Seconds

Worst Lipstick: Chanel Infrarouge (whisperlight lipstick)...the worst ever! So freaking drying, I use it as blush :S **

Do you agree or disagree on something? I want to hear your opinion, and your faves or hates ;)


The products marked with a * have been sent to me as either a gift or a prize won in a blog giveaway.

The product marked with a double * has been given to me from a store as a sample.
