Fave Products in 2009

Well I am a little late..this I realize but I wanted to name my top 3 face FACE products of 2009! I wanted to share what they are and why I love them SO much...so with out further blathering... Stay tuned for the rest of the Face as well...cheeks, eyes, lips and more!

3. Benefit Powderflage:

What they Say:

"Benefit Powderflage is a lightweight powder that camouflages fine lines, dark circles, or spots. It can be worn alone for light concealing or layered over a cream concealer for extra coverage. The powder ball and brush are small enough to pop into your purse, so you can touch up anywhere." -Sephora Website

What I say:

The jar itself is .11 oz and sells at Sephora for about $32 Canadian dollars, thats $28 Us. At first I was concerned with the price as it does not seem like you get very much in the jar, however you hardly use any of this stuff and it lasts forever!! I love the consistency, it is very light weight for my dry under-eye area and perfect for setting concealer underneath the eyes without looking cakey and gross. I use it on top of a liquidy concealer and it works just fab, giving me a slight highlight. I always used to set my concealer with powder for my face, and I have to say this rocked my world..it is amazing. I dust it on with a mac 224 brush after my concealer and it is divine!

4. Clinique Superbalanced Foundation

What they Say:

"Provides moisture and absorbs oil when and where needed with adjustable coverage that is silky upon application. Oil-free formula provides natural skin finish."-Sephora website

What I say:

What can I say..I LOVE this foundation! It gives me the dewy radiance I love without being too shiny. BUT..I hate how they say that it provides moisture and takes away oil where it needs to...cause that would mean it has a brain..hmmm..I think not..I have a few oily spots and I don't think this does much to combat that, however I love the medium coverage that is build-able and very blend-able. It's smooth and does not highlight large pores in the least. After continued experimentation I would have to say this could be my HG foundation...GASP!! have I spoke too soon...Diorskin Nude is on its way...we shall see what 2010 has in store for foundations! It is 1 oz and sells for $24 CDN and $21 USD

3. Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural

What they say:
luxurious domed face powder with minerals, slowly baked to provide a dimensional yet natural-matte finish. Provides perfect low coverage. Use to set and fix foundation or as a touch-up throughout the day. -Mac Cosmetics

What I say:

Luxurious indeed! I had tried this a while back and felt that I broke out from it, but I was using it with a combination of products that was not so good for my skin. I gave it a second shot and MAN am I glad I did...I have never found a powder that didn't look like...well....powder, it looks fresh and unpowdered which I love as I hate the look of powder on the skin. If you have oily skin this may not be the one for you, but if you have normal to combo skin this is SUPER FANTASTIC, it glides on with the 109 from MAC and is AMAZING...it provides that little bit extra coverage. I bought it in a few colors to highlight and contour the face and eyes, as well as bronze me! It is my go to product and for sure my face #1
