My Favorite Beauty Products 2010

Hey fashionistas!
I've been seeing a lot of bloggers posting their favorite beauty products of 2010, so I thought I would do mine. I'm not sure if they have to be new products from 2010 or products just new to you. My favorites are a bit of both.
By the way these are in no particular order.

Orly "Close Your Eyes" polish.
I took this months ago from my mom's bathroom and let me say that it hasn't made a return trip! It's a beautiful magenta color, opaque in 2 coats.
ELF "Smoky Brown" polish, or as I call it "Smoky Bear".

I think that this is the best fall/winter polish. It's very neutral and I love it. Normally I like pinks, reds, or deeper colors but this is amazing! Plus it's only $1. Seriously, what's not to love?

Co. Bigelow Lip Glosses
So maybe this isn't just a 2010 favorite. More like an all time favorite. Not just in this shade either, all of the scents and flavors are so amazing! They are super glossy and they aren't sticky at all. Bonus they are minty and on the package it says to have "breath freshening benefits".

ELF Contouring and Blush Duo
A new favorite of mine, but none the less a favorite! I don't really use the blush side (it's very sparkly) but I use the bronzer to contour everyday. It's not too dark for the winter at all. Plus it's $3 compared to the infamous Nars duo which I believe is $36; I'm not positive about that though.

NYC Color Wheel Mosaic Powder in "Pink Cheek Glow"
I bought this in I think April and I used it a lot and around October I stopped using it because I had put it in a makeup bag that I had in a random purse. I found it and I re-discovered my love for it. It really does give a nice glow, it isn't the longest lasting blush though but if you apply a creme blush under it then it has a longer lasting time.
EOS Lipbalm in Summer Fruits
Seriously? Do I even need to explain my love for this? I think not! If you don't already have one then I suggest you go buy one!

Wet n' Wild "Vanity" palette
This is a new product to me (like I bought it a few weeks ago) and it has already become a staple in my makeup! My favorite ones are the first on the left for a highlight, the 2nd on the left for a midtone color, and the bottom two for crease colors. This was so cheap and the quality is incredible, Wet n' Wild has seriously stepped up their game.

Stila "Kitten" eyeshadow
I use this basically everyday as a base color my bronzey looks (and other looks) also it's a great inner corner color. If you don't have this then you should, it flatters many (if not all) skintones.

Maybelline's "Falsies" mascara
This was a new product from 2010 and I have to say, it was love at first coat. I like to layer it over Rimmel's Lash Maxx mascara for a truly dramatic look.

Rimmel's Lash Maxx mascara.
As I said above I like to layer a coat of this with a coat of Falsies over it. This is the best lengthening mascara I've ever used.
Stila Smudge Pot in "Black"
I love cream eyeliners so much because of this! They glide on so nicely! If you aren't up to paying the $20 then I suggest the ELF Studio line cream liner in black. I promise it's just as good. I switch off between those two. I really do need to do a comparison post! One of these days....
