Best Blush–sooooo hard to choose!
Le Metier de Beaute Blush in Echo ($30) – the most esquisite shade of pink coral known to womanhood in an outstanding formula that makes your skin radiant!
Best Cream Blush–I discovered cream blushes in 2010 and was completely smitten with them. Using a cream blush on an over 40 face is one of the quickest and easiest ways to look more youthful and dewy!
BECCA Cream Blush-Turkish Rose ($30) – a univerally flattering pinky brown blush that lasts all day and looks uber natural. Definintely a Beauty All Star.
Three Custom Color Specialists Lip & Cheek Stain – Caramel Rose ($22.50) – a real multi-tasker, this cream blush can double as a lip stain and was new for 2010. The ideal shade to mimic a brisk fall walk or building a snowman. As with all 3CC blushes, the texture is divine.
Best Body Bronzer
St. Tropez Wash Off Instant Glow Mousse ($22.50)- this mousse is more expensive than others, but it’s worth every penny! It comes out of the pump looking nasty but once applied it is hands down the most natural color on the market. It dries quickly and doesn’t transfer. Wonderful stuff!
Best Face Bronzer–
Tarte Matte Waterproof Mineral Bronzer ($29)- a sister to my beloved Park Ave. Princess bronzer, the waterproof version made it debut in 2010. It also works beautifully as a contour powder and really what could be better than waterproof?
Best Foundation- Liquid
Lancome Teint Miracle ($37) - lightweight, 20 shades available and good for a luminious ‘lit from within’ look.
Powder – Laura Geller Balance & Brighten ($35) – the only powder foundation that has EVER worked for me. Maybe it;s because it’s actually a liquid baked into a powder. Gives a ‘soft focus’ look without looking cakey and is loaded with age fighting antioxidants.
Best Hair Care Product- I discocvered WEN in 2010 and I will never go back to regular shampoo again. Call me a convert!
WEN Cleansing Conditioner & Volumizing Treatment Spray In Lavender – the compliments just keep coming since I started using WEN. Everyone asks me if I colored my hair because my hair is so bright and sjiny and the color is amazing!
Best Nail Color–I fell in love with Zoya Nail Polish this past year. It is reasonably priced, wears like iron and oh! the colors!! However, OPI Metro Chic won for the gorgeous shade Metro Chic–a grey, beige, lavender. I would have picked a Chanel polish but I cannot bring myself to pay $23 for a nail polish. I iz cheap.

Best “I Glow Naturally” Product
BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector-Opal ($41) – the only product I’ve EVER found that is NOT glittery, shiny, or sparkly. Mix this with your moisturizer or foundation and you will instantly look younger, fresher and well rested. Adore this product! It comes in 5 shades to suit any complexion or occasion.
