The Best of 2011: Nail Polish, Nail Art, Makeup, Skincare & Fragrance

Swatch And Learn The Best of 2011It’s been quite a year, hasn’t it?

I’ve tried all sorts of new beauty products including nail polishes. And I’ve had tons of fun coming up with nail-art designs!

Now that it’s the last day in 2011, it’s time to reflect upon the year.

I’d like to share with you my Best of 2011 list! I still have a ton of favourites from last year, so these picks are strictly new ones that I’ve blogged about in 2011.

You’ll see it broken down into the following categories: nail polish (duh), nail art (double duh), fragrance, makeup, and skincare. All lists are in no particular order. (It was difficult enough to whittle down my picks for the nail polishes!)

Feel free to click on the links – they’ll take you to the blog post with the swatches, reviews, and tutorial (where appropriate).

Now I’m so curious about what you think!

Is there a lacquer that you feel I sorely missed including? Have you found your Holy Grail facial cleanser? What nail-art design have you worn in 2011 that you would consider wearing again in 2012?

Please weigh in with your picks! We’re all different, but our love for beauty products brings us together. 🙂 Continue reading

Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion Review & PicturesIf you want to banish dry skin like a medieval outcast, retire your suit of armour, and arm yourself with a bottle of Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion! (The lotion is mightier than the sword.)

Its packaging may look plain and boring, but it’s what’s inside that counts, remember? 😉

I’ve depended on this Aveeno hand and body moisturizer for a few years now. Every time that I’ve ever strayed, I always go back to this.

It works. And I like how it doesn’t have any frills or frou-frou fragrance that competes with the perfume I’m wearing.

This Aveeno lotion is a workhorse – does the job…even when it has work cut out for it! And dry skin doesn’t stand a fighting chance – it retreats to the valley. (Where’s the valley? I don’t know. But let’s just pretend it makes sense.)

Come see why this is a winter must-have for me! Continue reading
