I didn't make a 'favourites of 2011' post, but I just wanted to talk a bit about some of the things I've been enjoying using lately.
I'm currently on my second bottle of this. Usually cleansers seem really 'meh' to me, and I either don't bother with them (just cleansing wipes), or don't stick with them for more than one bottle.
My skin has been an absolute nightmare for the past three months, so everything I put on it makes me break out in spots. This has salicylic acid in, so it doesn't clog my pores. So far it's working really well, and is quite mattifying too.
I'm not normally one for bright or dark lip colours, but this one is a perfect dark fuchsia for Autumn and Winter. Plus the name is geekily awesome.
I got this at the Clothes Show Live back at the start of December, and along with 2 other shades of this, and 3 medium pencils, it was the first Illamasqua purchase I made. The pigmentation is insane, and it stays on so well. The other shades I got were black and silver so I haven't used them, just put them in my kit for the crazy looks I've got planned.
Recently, I've been introduced to the joys of filling my eyebrows. Haha. I always used to think it made me look like a tranny, but my college tutor has changed my mind. This pencil is really easy to use and has a spooly brush on the other side for grooming the hairs and blending out.
This is such a pretty blusher, a soft candy floss pink with blue shimmer. Really flattering on my cool toned skin.
I just have a sample of this, but I love it for highlighting my cheekbones and tearduct. It's so so pretty.
Got from the Clothes Show Live. Self explanatory!
Nice and scrubby, and very moisturising. Gets rid of those little bumps on my skin. This is something like my 4th or 5th jar, I love it and all the scents I've tried from them are great.
Honorable mention (because I forgot to photograph it): Philip Kingsley Elasticiser. Awesome conditioning treatment, which is completely non-greasy, doesn't make my hair flat, and makes my crunchy bleach-fried ends look smooth and lovely. Tried it in the Glossybox, but now I want a full-size, so I'm waiting til I see a good deal.
Hope you found this interesting!
