Top Products of 2010

2010 has been a year of rather limited makeup purchases on my end, a trend which I hope to continue in 2011. If you haven't noticed, I'm not a hauler that buys boatloads of name brand makeup every month, but there have been some amazing products this year that I just could not say no to. Here's a compilation of some of my top products of last year.

Kiehl's - especially the Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado and the Centella Recovery Skin Salve

Nars Sheer Glow in Mont Blanc
Kiehl's Ultra Facial Tinted Moisturizer in Light

MAC Petticoat and Stereo Rose Mineralize Skin Finishes
Nars Deep Throat

Urban Decay Naked Palette
Lilash (lash growth serum)

MAC Media lipstick
P2 lipsticks

Sigma F80 Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki

Orly Cosmic FX collection (It's Not Rocket Science, Halley's Comet, Space Cadet)
Essie Mint Candy Apple
China Glaze Short & Sassy

Matrix Biolage line (especially the Ultra-Hydrating Balm conditioner)
