Favorite products 2009!

Happy New Year everyone!  Thanks for reading my blog!!!
今年もよろしくお願いします!!!

Here are a few of my favorite products for 2009!

I’ve always loved makeup and bath/body products, but blogging really opened up my eyes!

Best Skin Care items:

Lush Brazen Honey Fresh Face Mask
Read my review here!

I got a sample of this while in London and now I LUST over it!
It is three times more expensive in Japan so I won’t buy any here!

VOV Apple Vinegar Peeling Wash Off Mask
Read my review here!

I got this in Seoul.  It’s cheap, and it really makes a huge difference in my skin texture!
Fair & Lovely Skin Clarity Anti-Marks Fairness Cream
Blair kindly sent this to me – and I LOVE IT.  It absorbs very quickly into the skin!
I can smell the Niacinamide in it, so I know it will work! 
Thanks Jamilla for letting me know what that smell is!
Rohto Gokujun Hadalabo Hyaluronic Acid toner
This has been my favorite toner (for moisturizing the skin) for a long time!

Best Makeup items:

EDM Intensive foundation in Light Olive
This foundation really gives me good coverage!  While both Golden Light and Light Olive work, this one seems to be a tad more natural!

Revlon ColorStay Liquid Liner
This is a cheap (in the US) eyeliner which really stays put!!

Milani Luminous Mineral Blush
I got this in Guam.  This is often called a Nars Orgasm dupe.  I just like the golden peach color!
I used it with an angled brush since it didn’t show up with a regular brush!

Cover Girl Lash Blast Waterproof 
I’m always on the lookout for good mascaras which give me volume and are waterproof!

Best rediscovered item:

False Eyelashes
Most of mine are from Daiso since I always want to try a new kind!

And the best glue for falsies – 

This is seriously the BEST falsies glue!  Your eyelashes won’t go anywhere!

Best brand which I now obsess over:

BATH AND BODY WORKS SIGNATURE COLLECTION!!!
I don’t need to explain, do I?
You all know about my obsession, right??

Best Brushes:

EDM Flat Top Brush
Cruelty free, and VERY soft!
This gives me great coverage when using mineral foundation!
AND it’s cheap!

EDM Long Handled Kabuki Brush
Similar to the FTK!  I like this one better when applying setting powder!

MAC 217 & 239
No explanation necessary, right?  I need to get another one of each!

Best Blogging Experiences:
Going to Guam/Seoul/London and meeting up with bloggers… and meeting bloggers who came to Japan!
Read about my experiences here!  Hope to meet up with more bloggers during my trip to NYC in the spring!
