2010 Beauty Favorites Tag + Photo of Me & Andrew

I got tagged by Linda to do this and I told her I will so now I shall ~~ hope you're happy woman!

1-Which lipstick/ lip gloss did you use most often in 2010?
MAC Cutester Lipstick! I've been trying to finish this tube of lipstick all year but I've found that I'm super lazy to re-apply lipstick so none of my lipsticks have gone down all year -__-"... but this one has a little bit! Plus I really hate how the lipstick squishes so easily and I just wanna get rid of it, although it really is a pretty shade :) Other than lipstick, I've been really getting into lip balms this year! My favorite is the Jack Black in the Natural Mint flavor.

2-What was your favorite eyeshadow this year?
I used mainly neutral eyeshadows this year. I haven't really fell back in love with colors yet.. or maybe there's not enough inspiration.. or I'm just short on time?!?! Lol, but the palette I turned to most was the Urban Decay Naked palette and the Too Faced Naked Eye palette that I purchase a few months ago during their sale!

3-What product for the complexion (foundation, blush, etc.,) did you use the most?
I LOVE the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation! (I really need to make a review soon.) I also enjoy using the Make Up For Ever HD Foundation. Blush wise, I really love the MAC Stereo Rose Mineralized Skinfinish or Benefit Coralista Blush and I always set my makeup everyday with the Make Up For Ever HD Powder. I swear one small jar lasts a little over a year for me! SOOOO worth the investment.

4-Your favorite nail polish color of 2010?
Didn't have a specific shade as a favorite, but this year I really enjoyed the taupe-type of colors! Either that, or anything from Essie. I think they're slowly becoming my favorite nail polish brand. They would be my favorite if only I could find them online for cheap (like China Glaze).

5-Which skin care product would you not give up under any circumstances?
I can never skip a day of eyecream (no favorites at the moment) or a day without putting SkinMD on my face! The current eyecream I'm trying out is the Caudalie Pulpe Vitaminée Eye and Lip Cream. Body wise, I can't go a day without putting lotion on because I have super dry skin I inherited from my father's side unfortunately!

I also can't bear to go a day without washing my face with Philosophy Purity Made Simple. It just keeps my face nice and clear :)

6-What is your favorite personal care product?
I can't live without my emjoi epilator! No picture of that because I always misplace this thing. I use it to epilate my underarms because I can't afford to wax and shaving doesn't last long enough for me! I've tried it on my legs and I use it there from time to time and then shave off the super small baby hairs. It also works wonders for my arms but I noticed I haven't been epilating that area for a while now.

7- Your usually worn fragrance in 2010?
I'm not big on scents so I don't really own any perfumes, but with my recent "sniffings" I found that I really like Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue and I've always been fond of Diesel Fuel For Life for Women but I've never purchased it.

8-What was your personal favorite jewelry piece?
I'm also not a big jewelery person either -- lol, I'm just boring I guess -- but when I do wear jewelery it's from Julu Jewelry or eki love! (Mainly earrings.) I do enjoy to wear my Forever 21 connector ring. It's just a solid gold bar and I feel it's very simple yet edgey :)

9-What have you discovered in 2010 that is new for you (new products, inspirations, blogs, hobbies, etc.,)?
I didn't really venture out much in 2010. I tried new products but none really stood out to me. There were no inspirations (unfortunately) and I haven't read any new blogs lately because I just don't really click away, lol. I guess a new "hobby" I do now is drinking tea! I've never drank tea before so it's really new to me but I don't think you'd consider it a hobby :P

10- Do you have resolutions for 2011? If so, what are they?
My resolution for 2011 is to not spend money on useless makeup I won't be using. It's hard to say no to my MAC makeup ladies but I really think I'm cured of impulsion! I guess it's okay once in a blue moon, but not everytime I see new stuff.

My other resolution is more school related -- stop/cut down on procrastination! I'm the queen of procrastination and since it's my first year at a university and taking full time SERIOUS classes, I've really got to buckle down and concentrate. Plus I need to get my priorities straight!

11-Tag other people:
I don't know who to tag because I've basically seen everyone on my blogroll do this tag already! I think I am the last (or near last) to do this so if you haven't done it, do it! :D

I did this post with self taken pictures! WOOO, I am damn proud of myself.


My mother asked me to take care of the nephew today while she started on some dinner since my sister was going to be late picking him up. I'm a lazy aunt. I sat there and watched youtube with him sitting in my lap... and I didn't even have to hold him!!! *SCORE*... lol, he's such a joy to watch. Never fussy and doesn't need attention! Who could've asked for anything more :)

He started screaming and I picked him up. Next thing I knew he fell asleep on my shoulder-ish area! I didn't even notice until I realized he wasn't wiggling anymore LOL... drooled all over my shoulder too but it's okay, it dried up in no time!


The next post I'm going to try to do is a skin care post since someone (Vanilla) asked me to :)

Stay happy, be healthy!



  1. Never called me back woman! lol. Yay for finally doing this tag! No press powder for you? I see boobiessss!!! Awww, your nephew is so good =]

    and great picks too! I want to try the Nars foundation either the sheer matte or or sheer glow gaaahhH!

  3. I want to hear your review on the NARS foundation! I'm interested in it and everyone ravesss about it, but I'm still not sold on it.

    Same thing with the Naked palette! Everyone is ravinggggggg about it but I don't see the appeal, other than that everyone wants it!
