YAY for Blog Awards

I was recently nominated for the Top 10 Award by Catharina over at Makeup Look.  If you haven't checked out her blog before I highly recommend you do so.  Her blog is one that I read all the time because I love her youtube video channel.  She gives fabulous tutorials and tips!!!  Thanks again Catharina for the award..

So, the rules are as follows:
Link back to the person who tagged you
Nominate 10 other bloggers
List your 10 favorite beauty products 

Here is a list of my favorite (well, right now anyway) beauty products:

1.  Batiste Tropical Dry Shampoo - I have tried many many many different types of dry shampoo but always go back to this one because it smells like coconut/pineapple, it does a fab job removing the excess oil from my very thick hair and it only costs about $8.99 CAN.

2.  Avon Smooth Minerals Blush in Blushing Mauve - If it's good enough for Reese Witherspoon (who supposedly wears it all the time) it's definitely good enough for me.  I love this blush because of it's gorgeous pinky rose tone and the fact that it adds the perfect amount of color without being overbearing.

3.  Smashbox Cream Liner Palette - Amazing colors right?  These liners are cream based so they go on very smooth and have great lasting power.  This palette has a price tag of about $35 CAN but I only paid $17 at the duty-free shop.

4.  LORAC Starry-Eyed Baked Eye Shadow Trio in Superstar - Sigh, once this brown trio is combined it creates a gorgeous bronze smokey eye which is perfect for daytime.  Plus, LORAC is an amazing brand.  Not only is the quality outstanding but the color will last all day, on your eyelids, without any creasing.

5.  Gosh Cosmetics Giant Sun Powder in 001 - I can NOT stop raving about this product!!!  It has literally become my go-to bronzer because it gives a great sun-kissed glow AND has gorgeous little gold flecks that seem to fall perfectly on your cheekbones.  Ladies, if you're near a Shoppers Drug Mart, go there and buy this palette...

6. MAC Cremesheen Glass in Partial to Pink - I am definitely a gloss girl and pink tones are always what I gravitate towards.  I particularly like this one because the color is perfect, it doesn't have a sticky feeling and it has a sponge applicator.  (I despise any other applicator for gloss.)

7.  Benefit Bad Gal Lash Mascara - I bought this on a whim as I was looking for a mascara that ACTUALLY made my lashes look huge and I am so happy I spent the money.  This one definitely lives up to the hype.  It has a huge mascara wand which separates every lash and adds a ton of volume to each and every lash, making your eyes look huge.  It's worth the money ladies.

8.  Revlon Luxurious Color Satin Eye Shadow Platinum Glimmer - Aside from bronze eye colors, my other faves are either grey or silver.  This one is fab because it combines both the grey and silver in one shadow.  Once on, it maintains its grey tone and adds a punch of glitter.  Not bad for $5.

9.  Clinique Moisture Sheer Tint SPF 15 in Fair - When it comes to summer, tinted moisturizers are the way to go.  This one is great because it actually provides quite a lot of coverage but still moisturizers your face.  Also, it's one of the only ones that doesn't make me breakout in the sun.

10.  Revlon Lustrous Lipstick Creme in Pink in the Afternoon - I was cleaning out my vanity table this past week and stumbled upon this forgotten pink lipstick.  Ever since I discovered it (Tuesday) I have been wearing this non-stop.  This pink color looks fabulous on my lips because it matches my fair skin tone perfectly.  I will definitely be buying this again.
