I was going to skip this favourites post and opt for a favourites of 2010 but I think I'd just be repeating myself too much. I'm pretty sure at least 99% of the products featured in one of my monthly favourites would make it into my favourites of the year and I just can't bear to skip the last monthly favourites of 2010 because it's the only series of posts I've successfully kept up with!
Firstly seeing my favourite perfume pop up here probably isn't a surprise because I got a brand new bottle for Christmas. I won't say too much because this beauty has it's own blog post but I just adore this scent.
Another product that won't be a surprise is Big Fake mascara from Collection 2000. I love what this does to my lashes in just one coat and at under £5 I think it's a complete bargain. Again, I'm not going into too much detail because I have a separate review already but I really think this is a great buy!
Pink Pout lipstick by Revlon has been sitting in my lipstick draw unloved for far too long and I don't know why because it's a beautiful colour! On my lips it's a pretty and very wearable pink with very slight purple undertones & I love it. It's not overly matte on my lips and isn't drying at all which is a definite bonus.
My nails aren't in very good condition at the moment but I couldn't resist these two pretty polishes when I saw them on the ELF website, plus for only £1.50 each it's hard to go wrong! I've been wearing them both layered over each other and it gives the prettiest glittery nails I've ever seen. They're also so easy to remove so you won't be there for ages trying to remove all traces of glitter which is never a fun experience! I also, being the massive loser I am, love the way they look in the bottle. They're just super pretty!
Another rediscovery this month has been the cream blush in glow from NYX. The formula may be quite thick but it's still really easy to blend and the smallest amount goes a long way. This colour gives a pretty natural flush of colour to the cheeks effortlessly. I can't believe I'd forgotten about this for so long & I don't even have that much make up!
Finally my last favourite is another blush I hadn't been reaching for in a while despite the fact it's absolutely gorgeous! Tweak powder blush from Illamasqua looks incredibly scary in the pan especially for someone as pale as me, but honestly the smallest amount gives a beautiful bright pink flush and I absolutely love it.
