Year-end countdown ^_^

Hello everyone!

I would like to share with you my most-used products for the year 2009..This is not a list of products that I just bought this year and liked but it is a list of products that I love and used continously for the whole year :)

In no particular order:

1. Venus and Mars Emu oil lip detox

- I keep on coming back to this lip really soothes my dry lips and keep it moisturized the whole day :)

2. The Face Shop Cllean Face White acne solution foam cleanser

- I use this 2x a day since I bought it. Keeps my face clean. Although I did not find any positive result for my acne, it still does a good job in cleaning my face :)
3. Shiseido eyelash curler

- It's not until early this year that I started to appreciate the power of a good eyelash curler hehe..before, I can go out with just powder on my face (lazy days) but now, it's a must to have my lashes curled + oil control powder before I can feel confident going out without makeup haha ^_^

4. Coastal Scents 88 matte e/s palette

- This is one of the products I bought this year that I really am grateful that I did not sell. I loved how I can create many looks with just this, it is so affordable that I don't mind using it whenever I want to play makeup..very bang-for-the-buck purchase IMO.

5. Skin Food Salmon Darkcircle Concealer

- I love this concealer! I use this almost everyday since day 1. I love how creamy it is (keeps my undereye from dryness) and how good it conceal my racoon eyes hehe..and for the amount of product I got from such an affordable price, I can't complain anymore..this is my HG concealer as of the moment :)
6. Ellana Buffer brush

- I'm really, really, really thankful that my sister gave this to me last Christmas..After a year, its condition is still the same when I got it new. It did not shed, still soft and dense and big enough to finish the job fast. This is my HG face brush..I love this more than my other kabuki brushes :)

7. MAC paintpot in Painterly

- This primer is almost finished already and I will be needing a new one soon. Although I'm not yet sure if I'll get another one of this (it tends to dry out easily in the pot), this item will still have a space in my heart. It served its purpose very well for the last 2 years or so. Keeps my eyeshadow intact and vibrant the whole day. It's pricey but still a good buy since you'll be able to use it for almost 2 years if used everyday.

8. Mandom Cleansing Express Sebum

- I love this make-up remover! I use this every night to remove my makeup and the dirt and oil, accumulated during the day, from my face. This is very mild for my sensitive skin (no stinging sensation on eye area) yet still does the job pretty well. It's affordable too! I already have finished 3 bottles of this and I don't see myself changing to another brand anytime soon :)

9. Ellana Moisturizing Lip Color in Sensual
- This is my favorite lip color for this year. I use this almost everyday because it doesn't dry out my lips and gives me a lasting color like a lip tint. Aside from it being a mineral makeup, I also love the fact that a pot lasts for more than a year even if used frequently everyday. You really get the value for your money. I use this a lot and I still haven't finished up half of the product yet. Love this :)

10. ELF Eyeshadow brush
- This brush works great in packing color to my eyelids. After using this for a time, I stopped getting the urge to buy a MAC 239 brush. Even though it's not as soft as I like it to be, it still does the job pretty well and it doesn't shed. And since the price is so cheap, I can buy myself a lot for different colors. I'm so happy that I did not regret buying this hehe :)

That's it! Those are my top 10 products that I loved (and still loving) for the year 2009. I can really see myself re-purching majority of the products listed when I finished them up. I really am happy to purchase these stuff with my hard-earned money :)

This will be my last post for the year. Time really pass us so fast noh? When I wake up tomorrow, it will be January 1, 2010 already.

Thank you so much for being with me this year! I hope to stay in contact with all of you for more years to come. Happy New Year Everyone!

I wish everyone will be healthier, happier and more prosperous this coming 2010. God bless everyone! ^_^
I love you all!
