Best and Worst of 2010!

Hello everyone!

I remember reading this post from Catalina at the end of last year (2009) and I really wanted to do it! But I never use too much stuff to know and yeah, it was also when I wasn't into youtubing and blogging as much as I am now!

But now that I am apart of the beauty community, I thought this would be the great chance to do the best and worst products of the year!

PS. I copied and paste Catalina's format. I hope she doesn't mind!!

  2. It's great how you've included high-end brand makeup in both best and worst :) I'm curious to know why some were bad experiences for you (whether they broke you out or just had bad quality) e.g. Benefit Bad Gal Lash, Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturiser

  3. You look gorgeouss~!
    And ahhh, it seems you tried out a lot of makeup in 2010 x) ! Here's to hoping that 2011 will be filled with much moreee good ones! <3

  4. You and your friends are so gorgeous! Happy 2011 Cathy! I would choose ELF powder brush for best brush too haha and the price! I really like your makeup in the last picture. So pink so you :)

  5. can you do a review on the laura mercier tinted moisturizer? i've been wanting to get it but i'm still not sure
