• 11 favourites of '11

Hey lovelies! I was tagged by many lovely ladies to do this post. Here they are in no particular order. Wanna see which ones made it into the list? Scroll down...

** 1) E.L.F. 100 pieces eye shadow palette **

This item has every right to be in this list since my sister gave it to me as a Christmas gift last year. So, I've been using and loving it for a whole year! I never did a review on it because I thought it was limited edition and I wouldn't like to suggest a product you cannot find. Now, it's back in stock and part of the permanent collection I believe. Whether you are looking for colourful shadows like a true red or more natural ones, this palette will cover your needs.

** 2) Sigma Make me blush brush kit **

I needed a complete make up brush set really much. This one combines great quality brushes with a splash of colour that makes my day. And the brush holder is very useful for travelling or storing the brushes. Only problem is I love it so much I now want the new Sigma sets!

** 3) BornPrettyStore stamping plates **

I discovered stamping a couple years ago. Back then Konad was the only available brand. But they were not that affordable, especially in Greece. I was super excited to discover BornPrettyStore stamping plates with the same designs and quality as the Konad ones but at a much lower price and free worldwide shipping. I still haven't used every single design but I'm planning on getting more of them! Bad girl!

** 4) Essence Stay on and on and on mascara **

This have been my favourite mascara since I first use it! It gives volume, curls and holds the curl, it doesn't clump or smudges, it's water resistant and it's easily removed with waterproof eye make up remover or just warm water. And when I finally found my perfect mascara Essence goes and stops making it! I'm so angry! I still have a couple of them of course but I'm so sad they discontinued it.

** 5) E.L.F. eyelid primer + mineral eye primer **

I kinda cheated and put 2 products here but they have the same results so it's just a matter or taste which one you'll choose. I really like them, they are very affordable and make the eyeshadows brighter and last for many hours. They are not shimmery so you can use them with matte eyeshadows as well. Only thing I'd add is a little coverage for those tiny veins on the browbone. But still, they are great products, with a couple euros you can make almost every cheap eyeshadow work better.

** 6) Essence Studio nails better than gel nails top sealer **

I bought the Seche Vite top coat because I've heard so many good things about it and I really wanted a fast drying, long lasting, shiny top coat. Then I tried this one and I really believe it's a better Seche Vite. It dries fast, it's shiny and lasts longer on me than Seche Vite, it doesn't get thick that easy and it's more affordable! Love it!

** 7) China Glaze Up & Away collection minis **

I fell in love with pastel nail polishes this spring and I enjoyed this set a lot! I love every single colour, even the packaging! The last couple months I'm not using them that much but I'm sure I'll go back to them this spring too! Also, with this set I start loving China Glaze nail polishes, great quality at a good price.

** 8) Sigma F80 flat to brush **

You might think "comm'on, just a brush?" but this brush changed the way I apply my foundation and the way my foundation looks on me. Perfect coverage, airbrushed finish, I totally love it!

** 9) The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter **

Amazing smell, deeply moisturises, already have back ups! I can't use during hot summer days but I really enjoy it every other day. I also have the Sweet Lemon one, lighter and better for warm days and I want to try the Moringa one, it has a more floral scent.

** 10) Escada Taj Sunset perfume **

The perfume of 2011 for me, present from my bf. I enjoyed it a lot during summer and autumn, now I'm using some older perfumes but I still love it!

** 11) BLOGGING! **

I know, I know, this is not a product but it's one of my fav things in 2011! I'm so glad I started blogging! Sometimes I can't blog as much as I want but I'm still happy I can share some posts with you every month. I'd like to give a big hug to each and every person that visits my BeautyLand, it means so much to me and makes me so happy!! Thank you lovelies!!!

The last couple months I got some amazing products which I love so far but I thought it wouldn't be fair to include them in the list since I'm only using them for a couple months. No worries, I'm sure they'll make it to a future favourites post.

Phewww, I'm done! Which products did you include in your list? I'd love to know!! I wish you a very happy and glamorous New Year's Eve! Be safe, have fun!
