I'm finally posting my top products of 2009. Here goes....
Lipstick: Mac Saint Germain & Creme d'nude. YSL Rouge Volupte #7 & #8.
Lipgloss: Nar Striptease. By Terry Baume de Rose (I guess this is a "lip treatment" but I wore it as a gloss).
Blusher: Benefit Coralista (I wore this for my wedding). Shu Uemura P Pink 33E.
Bronzer: Benefit Hoola (for when I want a matte look) Givenchy Prismissime Matte & Glow (for when I want a shimmery look).
Contour: Mac Sculpt & Shape powder in Accentuate/Sculpt (I have used this practically every day since I bought it).
Highlight: Benefit Georgia.
Eyeshadow: Pure Artist Cube (not sure what the colour is called, its a shimmery charcoal/black). Mac Young Punk & Gilt by Association. Mac Cream Colour Base in Black (my go to product for a quick dark eye look).
Eyeliner: Mac Feline Khol Power. Make Up Forever Aqua Eyes in 1L (these two are my every day liners). I also liked Pure Kajal Liner in Black, Guerlain Khol Me in Ivory and an Yves Rocher Kajal liner (the exact name has rubbed off the packaging).
Eyebrow: Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil in Hazel (a super old tried & trusted favourite). Givenchy Eye & Brow Prisme.
Mascara: I didn't really find "The One" in 2009 but I was pretty impressed with L'Oreal Lash Architect in Carbon Black and L'Oreal Telescopic.
Tinted Moisturiser: Again, I didn't find "The One" but I used Laura Mercier in Nude since summer. It works.
Concealer: Make Up Forever 5 Camoflage Palette.
Nail Polish: The ones I used the most throughout the year are Barry M Bright Red & Baby Pink, China Glaze in Shocking Pink Neon and Mavala in Liberty (its a nude shade).
Brushes: Mac #109 contour and Chanel #24 small pencil/smudger.
I'd say my brands of the year were Make Up Forever & Mac, and high-end brands YSL & Givenchy.

I only popped in there during my lunch hour to buy some tights!

It seems the only other Spring collections I am interested in are Michael Kors Hollywood Collection for Estee Lauder and the new eyeshadow quads (one shade, four finishes) from Givenchy. I've made it my new years resolution not to get too sucked into buying from the MAC collections. I only stocked up on Feline Kohl Power from the Love Lace collection. What products in the spring collections are interesting you?
More blog posts to come this week, I promise! I've taken the photos already.
