Best Products of 2011!

     Hi everyone! It's getting close to the end of the year, so today I'm going to do a post on, in my opinion, the best beauty products of 2011!!! Now, I know I just did a post on my holy grail products, but I had found a lot of those in 2010. This is strictly full of products that I've found and loved in 2011. I hope you guys enjoy this:)

Covergirl Natureluxe Foundation- I have talked about this product way too much. But I can't help it! It's too great! I found this back in August, and I have been completely in love with it ever since. It has sheer to medium coverage, which is great all year around, especially in the spring and summer months. I'm still looking for a more full coverage foundation for winter, but this is still really amazing. If you want to see my review/rave on this product, click here! 

NYX Cream Blush in Glow- I bought this product for the first time very recently, in the beginning of this month, but I had to include it! It is defiantly in my top 10 for best products of the year. I'd never used a cream blush before, and I wanted to try one. The mac ones seemed nice, but I wanted to try a NYX one first because I heard it was a great dupe. Now that i have it, I never want to buy a mac creme blush. I'll just buy more of these! The consistency of this blush is amazing, and it looks really natural. This shade- glow- is a pnky, glowly color with a touch of coral. Super nice, and defiantly worth the money!

Urban Decay NAKED Palette- I love this palette, and so does pretty much everyone else that owns it! It has 12 colors, 4 of which are exclusive to this palette. They are full of neutral gold to cocoa colors, which are prefect for everyday. I got this as a gift, and I am so appreciative for it. I use it about 3 to 4 days a week, which is actually quite a lot. I can create so many looks with this- the possibilities are endless! And the new NAKED Palette 2 came out as well! I don't think I'm going to get it, but just so you guys know.:)

Benefit's Stay Don't Stray- Got this only about a week ago, but I already like this better than my Urban Decay Primer Potion. I just did a review on it, so I don't feel like going too much in depth. But if you want to know, click here! 

Almay's Eyeshadow Tri for Hazel Eyes- LOVE this. So much. I use this trio just as much if not more than my Urban Decay NAKED palette. I got this back in October for the light pink color to use for my Halloween costume, but now I use it all the time for it's brown and champagne colors. I usually use the champagne color all over my lid, and use the brown in my crease. It's great for everyday use, and I always put it in my makeup bag when I travel since it's so small and easy to carry around.

L'oreal Paris HIP Cream Eyeliner in 905 Black- Before I started wearing liquid eyeliner, I always used gel. Gel eyeliner is pretty much fool-proof, since it doesn't dry right away. I had tried one or two other kinds before this, but they all smudged like crazy. Even if I set them with a black eyeshadow. This, on the other hand, stays on all day, with minimal smudging after it dries. It comes with a really tiny brush (which actually works really well. I keep telling myself I should get a better one, but why do that when you have a free one that does the job?) So I really like this one. Everyone seems to like the Maybelline one, which i haven't tried. I might like that one better, but i doubt it, since this one is so nice!

NYX Super Skinny Eye Marker- Now that I do use liquid eyeliner, i use my skinny eyemarker. This is actually the eyeliner that got me to like liquid eyeliner.. And it's the only one I use. Hahaha:) It's just soooo easy to use!It makes really precise lines, with great color payoff. I've been wearing this a lot lately. Absolutely love it!

Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes- This mascara came out pretty recently, and it's amazing! It has a really tiny brush, which is great for getting bottom lashes and lashes on the inner corners. Plus, it's very lengthening. I never really liked the original great lash, but I LOVE this one. It might even be the same formula, but the tiny brush makes a huge difference. I really reccommend checking this out, because it makes your lashes look really amazing, but natural. I'm really for natural and long lashes instead of thick and clumpy ones. That might just be me, though. :)

So that's all of my favorite products of 2011!! So like I said, I have a lot of other favorite products that I use on a daily basis, but these are the products I found and have loved in 2011 and will probably be repurchasing for a very long time. :)

Thanks for reading!



  1. I adore the Naked Palette but like you I don't think I will get the second one. The colors are bit too similar for my liking. Great post :D I love reading favorites! xx

  2. I completely agree! I do see a little bit of a difference, but I wouldn't spend $55 on something I basically have already;) Thanks for reading!<3


  3. Great post, I love Maybelline Great Lash mascara it is my favorite! I don't own the naked palette and dont really plan on buying it because it is pricey however the colors do look nice! By the way I found you on on Monday Beauties Blog hop and am now a new follower!
