Top 11 in 2011

1. The Body Shop Super Volume Mascara
This has been my go to mascara all year, I’ve tried a few others from Clinique and IsaDora but I always come back to this. It gives my lashes lots of volume and thickness, it has a good sized brush and it doesn’t dry out.

2. Smashit Hydrating Fluid Foundation in Milk
I don’t wear foundation very often and one of the reasons for that is that I have really hard time to find a color that matches my very pale skin tone. And then I came across this, it is the first foundation I’ve tried that is actually a little to light for me but it stills work both for wearing on it’s own and to mix with my Mary Kay foundation. The only drawback is that it’s a little to shinny at least on my skin but it’s noting a good setting powder wont fix.

3. MAC 263 Brush
I had been looking forever for a thin synthetic angled brush to use on my brows and this is perfect. That it also works great for eyeliner is just a bonus.

4. MAC Paint Pot in Nubile
I have a fondness for cream shadows and been wanting to try Paint Pots for a long time now and this one just seemed to perfect to pass up. It’s from the Posh Paradise Collection so it is unfortunately Limited Edition. It’s perfect for everyday wear and although it works great as a base I’ve mostly been wearing it on it’s own.

5. Elf Eyebrow Kit in Light
This is pretty mush all I use for my brows nowadays. It’s easy and quick to use and last well all day

6. IsaDora Jelly Kiss Lipstick in Merry Berry
I almost never wear anything on my lips, I don’t like the way it feels and it always fades after a few hours anyway. So this one was a pleasant surprise, first of it feels light and moist on my lips, it has a rather strong scent of vanilla but I really like it. And the color is beautiful, I love red lips but it can often feel like too much in casual situations so this is perfect since it can be worn rather sheer or be built up for a more intense red color.

7. Neutrogena Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub
Granted this is a skincare product and not a makeup product but it’s so good it simply had to be on the list. I use it 2-3 times a week and it has dramatically reduced my blackheads, love it!

8. Viva La Diva Eyeliner in Soot
Best black eyeliner I have ever used, it really is inky black and is creamy and easy to apply and best of all it stays really well on my waterline even do it’s not waterproof.

9. IsaDora Inliner Kajal in 56 Blonde
This is another standard in my everyday makeup routine, I wear it on the waterline to brighten the eye but it’s not as harsh as a white eyeliner.

10. MAC Eyeshadow Club
This is my first (and so far only) MAC eyeshadow and I am in love! The color is just so unique and exciting yet surprisingly wearable both for everyday or going out.

11. Wet n’ Wild Cover All Concealer Palette
Awesome product for an awesome price, the concealer is way to dark and orange for me but it gets an extra plus for the highlighter.

Halloween - All Stitched Up

Fall has arrived in full force here in Sweden and winter is approaching faster than ever. I much prefer spring and summer but fall does bring with it two things to look forward to. The first being all the great makeup in beautiful fall colors and the second thing being Halloween. Definitely the most exciting holiday makeup-wise, it’s one day that you can really let your imagination flow and do something creative.

While browsing the internet looking for some inspiration for some Halloween makeup I came across a bunch of MAC Halloween face charts from some years back. So I thought I would do my interpretation of some of my favorites, not sure how many I’ll have time do to but here is the first one, inspires by the MAC chart All Stitched Up.

Sugerpill Eyeshadow - Tako
