2011 Beauty Favorites

I found a lot of great products this year & some even beat out some of my long time favorites. There are still some of my old standbys that made the list too though.
I tried to do at least one product from every category in my beauty routine. 
Sorry for mis-speaking a few times, I was trying to get through a lot of products in a short amount of time. Also, that I got mixed around & ended up doing half my face stuff at the end. I guess my well thought out list didn't work too well.

Products Mentioned:
Foundation Brush- Real Techniques Stippling Brush
Contour Brush- High Definition Angled Blush Brush
Eyeshadow Brush- Real Techniques Base Eyeshadow Brush
Blending Brush- Too Faced Blending Brush
Benefit Porefessional
Urban Decay De-Slick
Primer- Too Faced Primed & Poreless
Eyeshadow Primer- any Urban Decay Primer Potion
Powder- Maybelline Shine Free Loose Powder
Contour- NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in Sunny
Highlighter- Revlon ColorStay Mineral Finishing Powder in Brighten
Blush (Fall/Winter or Warm)- Ulta Cheek Color in Infatuation
(Spring/Summer or Cool)- Maybelline in Pressworthy Pink
Favorite Mascara- Maybelline The Falsies Black Drama
Most Reached for Mascara- Too Faced Lash Injection

Gel Liner- Wet N Wild 
Waterline/Pencil- Makeup Forever Aqua Eyes & Rimmel Soft Kohl
Most Worn Eyeshadow- Ulta Eyeshadow in Twilight
Favorite New Eyeshadow Color- Jessie's Girl Eye Dust in Baby Blues
Favorite Palette- ELF 100 Palette & Sleek Bad Girl (I accidentally said Spoiled Brat in the video)
Most Worn Palette- ELF Party Palette &
Wet N Wild Spoiled Brat (Once again I accidentally said it's by ELF)
Most Worn Lipstick- CoverGirl LipPerfection in Spellbound
Favorite New Lipstick Color- CoverGirl LipPerfection in Divine
Most Worn Lashes- Love & Beauty/Forever 21 #150 (I'm not sure if they keep the same number with their lashes or if they are constantly changing, so they may have a different number on them)
Nail Polish- Sally Hansen Diamond Strength in Lilac Chantilly
Foundation- Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse, Revlon ColorStay for Combination/Oily, & Revlon PhotoReady (it seems like a hassle to mix all 3 of these but it makes for the perfect coverage, lasting power, blending, & finish. I just blend them together on the back of my hand)
Under Eye Concealer- CoverGirl & Olay SimplyAgeless Eye Corrector
All Purpose Concealer- Maybelline Dream Mousse Concealer (discontinued) Hard Candy Glamoflauge

I think that there are going to be a ton of great products in 2012!
I can't wait to start trying them!
