Favorite Products Of 2011!

Hello again! Since I've got some free time, I really want to take the time to talk about some of my favorite products from 2011. 


Sephora Brand Lipstain in "Always Red"

This is a cream lipstain that dries matte. I'll have swatches and an in depth review sometime soon. But this is seriously my favorite red lip product!

E.L.F Studio Conditioning Lip Balm SPF 15

I own this lip balm in "Peaceful Pink", "Romantic Rouge" and "Nice & Natural" Also another product I promise to review in depth. Let me just say this, this lip balm has a nice color payoff and it is very conditioning on the lips.

Revlon Lip Butter in "Cherry Tart"

If you have internet access and you follow any bloggers, then you already know all about this little delight! I bought the last one from my CVS and I can't wait for them to be cut into the permanent display. Needless to say, I have a lot to review! 

E.L.F Hypershine Lipgloss in "Flirt"

Throughout the summer and into the fall, this was definitely my go to lipgloss. The color is just perfect for my skin tone. Of course I've got about 3 back ups just waiting patiently to be used! 

Nyx Mood Lipgloss

This is another go to favorite of mine. I got in the same Ulta haul as Essie's
"Shine of the times". I'll definitely be reviewing this soon!

Revlon Color Burst Lipgloss

I absolutely adore these lip glosses. I own several of them (and I swear I'll swatch and review!). 


E.L.F Studio Cream Eye shadow 

Right now I own three of these shadows in "Teal Party", "Purple Pleaser" and "Smoke". I have two or three more coming soon! (Hint, I'll definitely be posting a haul blog from Elf studio!) And once that haul gets here, I'll be swatching and reviewing these great shadows!

E.L.F Essentials Eyelid Primer

This is my holy grail primer, without a doubt. My eye shadow lasts up to around 12 hours and still looks just as fresh as it did in the morning!

Buxom Lash Mascara

I love this mascara. Some might say it's a bit bulky but that's what I love about it. It has a nicely shaped brush and it makes me feel luxurious when I apply it! I'll definitely be reviewing soon!

Revlon Luxurious Color Smoky Crayon In "006 Black Smoke"

This liner is great and very easy to use! It's great when I want to "fake awake". 

E.L.F Essentials Liquid Eyeliner

I own six of these in "Teal", "Cobalt Blue", "Forest Green", "Black", "Coffee" and "Midnight". My favorite is definitely "Cobalt"! Swatches and review coming soon :)

Sephora Brand Jumbo Liner

I have this in "#13 Marine" and "#14 Violet". These are very long lasting with little to no budging or feathering! I reach for these when I want a quick and easy look.

Urban Decay Naked Palette

This is probably no surprise! The Naked Palette is a great addition to anyone's collection. I'll be doing a review on all my Urban Decay products in one post soon!

E.L.F Studio Mascara Primer

This primer is definitely amazing. Not only does it help your mascara last longer but it also helps your lashes become stronger! 


Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush in "#25 Rose Petal"

This is, without a doubt, my favorite blush! It's great for a natural flushed glow and compliments

E.L.F Studio Cream Blush in "Heartbreaker"

This is such a pretty color, there's no shimmer (which I love!).

E.L.F All Over Cover Stick in "Spice"

This little stick is supposed to be a concealer but I use it as foundation! (I was also using Rimmel Clean Finish but that's a review for another day..) It's smooth and gives a nice coverage. 

E.L.F Studio HD Powder

I absolutely love this hd powder. It makes my skin appear flawless in pictures! A review is on the way! 

E.L.F Studio Mineral Infused Face Primer

What can I say? Elf is just good to my face! (*insert samface here*)


So I can definitely say that 2011 was a good year for E.L.F! They came out so many new and amazing products over the year, so lets keep our fingers crossed for more. I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed putting it together :) Have you tried any of these products? If so, sound off in the comments! 



  1. I must agree Elf is great to my face as well! The conditioning lip balm is one of my fav products of all time from them...that and the liquid lipstick (although i don't see it here ;P) Nice blog :)

  2. I LOVE the studio cream eyeshadows. I have 3, but none of the 3 you have! lol
