Best of 2010 Lips
Um, yah...not much of a lipstick/lipgloss girl alright
Best Lip Liner 2010
Annabelle Lip Liner in 'Demure'
Hands down the BEST lip liner I've ever used. This is the perfect nude color with a hint of pink. It can be used all over the lip on it's own with a lip balm overtop, or as a regular liner. Sorry I know Annabelle is Canadian but if you can find it...GET THIS. They have a few other colours I like but Demure is the absolute best.
Best Lipstick 2010
E.L.F. Runway Pink
Gorgeous nude pink color that looks even better with pretty much any gloss over it! The formula of these is so creamy smooth it's amazing. These are $5 people, I mean really how can you go wrong.
Best Lipgloss 2010
I just got Beach Patrol & it reminded me how much I love these. The little mini ones are their top 5 colours & all you would ever need. So easy to throw in your purse or make-up bag. Perfect moisturizing non sticky yet durable lip gloss with the most beautiful colors! Larger lipgloss is $10-$20CAD or $24CAD for the mini set.
Honorable Mention Lipgloss 2010
Revlon Peach Petal, ELF Candlelight, Milani Glitzy in Glitz & Glam
All of these are fairly opaque, the Peach Petal is a milky peach colour that looks beautiful over a nude lipstick. The ELF and Milani are both kind of a nude pink (can you tell I like nudes & pinks) that are very wearable on their own.
Best Tinted Lipbalm 2010
Philosophy Kiss Me Red Lip Balm
I re-discovered this product this year & forgot how much I love it. This gives you such a pretty flush of a pink berry colour on your lips. It is also quite moisturizing as it contains vitamin E & almond oils. There is a bit of a peppermint scent to it, but only very slight. It has a slanted squeeze applicator so you don't have to use your finger to apply. And bonus, it has an SPF 20. Little more expensive at anywhere from $12-$18CAD but this goes a long way! You can find it at Sephora or anywhere Philosophy is sold.
Okay everyone, that is it. These were my bests of 2010. I have to say I know I complained a bit about the work involved in doing these 'Best Of' posts, but it was actually so much fun. I'm kind of sad that it's over really. I hope you have enjoyed it too and that maybe you found something new to try that you'll love as much as I do. I appreciate all the great comments that you have been leaving & I now have some new things to try, based on all your recommendations. So here's to 2011 and enjoying the things we love & finding new things to share!
