Happy New Year 2010!!
Its the year of the Tiger!
How was everyone’s new year?
I was supposed to do the giveaway in this post but since i havent figured out where my closest postoffice in Hong Kong is, i’ll do it in my next post instead XD
Instead i’m going to write about my fave beauty buys of 2009!
Fave BBcream of the Year
The FaceShop oilfree bbcream
Yup it has joined HG status amongst my collection of bbcream.
Other fave buys of this year include : Skin79 and Innisfree
Constant HG: Oriks Vitamin C bbcream
Fave lipgloss of the year
Canmake Nudy Glow range especially #05
This was a late buy of the year [released a few months ago in Japan] but it has gained HG status amongst my collection of lipgloss.
Other fave buys of the year include: NARS
Constant HG: Sally Hansen Lipflation
Fave eyeshadow of the year
NARS in Mekong
I rarely buy single eyeshadows but fell deeply in love with this brown shade specked with gold glitter.
Other fave buys of the year include: Urban Decay shadows
Constant HG: i am still looking since i dont buy singles often
Fave palette of the year
Lunasol Germinate Eyes 01
You all know i love lunasol. Its no wonder it was my fave brand of 2008! And it continued into 2009.
For almost half this year, i had a mad obsession with gold shadows and this was the perfect palette.
Other fave buys of the year include: KATE deep trap eyes range, Guerlain
Constant HG : Lunasol XD
Fave Nail Polish of the year
This is the perfect hot pink shade but alas Le Un underwent some weird repackaging later in the year and dropped this color from the range T-T
Other fave buys of the year include: SkinFood Milky Creamy Nail Range, Parado Sugar Syrup
Fave Masks of the year
VOV washoff masks [Volcanic Ash and Cereal being my faves]
Other fave buys of the year include: SKII masks, Boots Botanics Conditioning Clay Mask [this came close to being my fave of the year]
And my FAVE beauty brand of the year
I have been using the entire skincare range for around 4 months now and i definetely think its doing something good. No breakouts and my skin has been smoother than ever. It doesnt seem to whiten my skin as much as say..Sekkisei range from KOSE but i really like it
The other skincare range i used prior to this for the earlier part of this year was PhytoBlack range from Shu Uemura and i think they are really good too! But somehow SKII seems to be working out better for me.
Last year’s winner: Lunasol
There you have it, my small little roundup of things i bought/tried for the year which i really adored.
What has been your fave buy of the year 2009?
Update: one of you asked why i didnt include the GHD in this list, well though i bought a new GHD this year, its not exactly a new buy. I have had a GHD for over 8 years now. The new GHD is exactly the same..just pink hahahah
