Favourite Beauty Products of 2011!

22 Jan

I thought I would share with you all my fav products which I can’t live without and used a lot during 2011. So let’s get started….

1.Dry shampoo is a life saver!! You know when your having an amazing hair day but it looks a bit oily..well dry shampoo is definitely a savior in those situations. It also works great on oily hair generally.. Washing your hair everyday damages it so dry shampoo is a great option! I use the boots dry shampoo and I really love it. I’ve been using it for a while and really can’t do without it. This product is amazing!!

2.Soap & Glory is one of my favorite brands and they have great products and I really love their packaging. Their Hand Food cream is the best hand cream! I have one in my office and one in my bag. If you haven’t tried it yet then you definitely should now.

3. The third product is a face wash which is also by Soap & Glory. I have been using this since the beginning of 2011.It leaves my skin feeling really fresh and clean.

4.Now moving on to makeup, the NYX blush is Terra Cotta is such a beautiful color. I bought it back in 2010 and I use it so much that I got another one. NYX products are great and the price is also good. I have a lot of their blushs and lipsticks. In UAE the blush costs under AED30. So for those of you who don’t like spending too much on your makeup products you should try out NYX since they are a great value for your money.

4.I have done a post on Sigma Brushes and how I love them. My fav brushes from the sigmax collection are the F82 and P82. The F82 is great for applying foundation flawlessly. I use the P82 to apply concealer. I don’t like using the flat concealer brushes so I always use my fingers to apply concealer, but ever since I got the P82 I only use that. I love these two brushes!!

4.I had been hearing so much about the benefit ‘They’re real mascara’ that I had to try it out. This is a really great mascara it gives great volume and it lengthens your lashes.

5. Urban Decay have so many products that I love and use almost every day. The Urban Decay Naked palette has been one of the most popular products in the beauty world among fellow bloggers and beauty gurus. It has  basic neutral colors but they are just so great that I find my self always using it.

They have come out with the Naked Palette 2 but I don’t think I will get it yet since I feel its pretty similar to the first one.

6. The Urban Decay primer potion is something I ALWAYS apply this before applying my eye shadow. This makes your eyeshadow stay on all day without creasing.

7.The Benefit Big Beautiful Eyes palette is my go to palette. I use this all the time and it look good as well.

7.I have oily skin so my face tends to get shiny during the day. The urban decay de slick products (the spray and the powder) are great for this. I carry the powder in my makeup bag and apply when my face gets oily during the day and it instantly mattifies it. So girls if you have oily skin, I strongly recommend this product.

8.Keihl’s facial moisturizer with SPF 15 – I’ve tried out many moisturizers but this is one that has made it to my favorite list! I have been using this for a few months now and it’s really great. It is available at Harvey Nichols in Mall of Emirates in Dubai.

9.  H&M launched its beauty and makeup products in UAE this year and I had bought a couple of their nail polishes. I usually use the Essie nail polishes so when my red Essie polish ran out I started using the H&M one and I was surprised by the quality of the H&M nailpolishes!

10. Dhatri Hair Care Herbal Oil: a friend of mine told me about this product a few months ago when I was complaining about my hair. I have fine hair and I really don’t like my hair at all! I know I should oil it more often but honestly I get so lazy. And it doesn’t help when your using products,blow dryer or straightener all the time. This oil is seriously amazing. It’s ideal to use it twice a week and you will see a difference in a few weeks. I told my mom about it as well and she was really happy with the results.  One of my resolutions this year is to have healthy long hair!

You will find this product in Indian grocery stores as it not available at all grocery stores.
