{favourites} december 2011

i made a couple of youtube videos before the new year but unfortunately dropped the ball, so to speak, with creating the corresponding blog posts so here we go...

since i've been trying a whole bunch of new products, i decided i wanted to start doing a monthly favourites series. i see a ton of these on youtube and they seem like a really good way to (a) share what works for you and (b) keep a catelog of sorts of the products that you use and love. i have a lot of favourites in december because i changed a lot of my skincare and haircare routine. in subsequent months, i am only expecting to have a handful of products to share. :)

ok, i look like i'm going to eat the l'oreal eye makeup remover in the screen capture below but i swear i just open my mouth reeeally wide when i talk.

here are my favourites in order of appearance:

1. l'oreal gentle eye makeup remover
2. clean & clear daily pore cleanser
3. ahava mineral hand cream
4. maybelline instant age rewind eraser for dark circles in medium
5. physician's formula mineral wear talc free mineral face powder in buff beige
6. nyc blushable creme stick in big apple blush
7. annabelle blush in #32 pronto
8. mac matte eye shadow in carbon
9. nyx nude on nude palette
10. maybelline baby lips in quenched
11. revlon colorburst lip butters
12. sula natural lip gloss in beautiful stranger
13. ecotools brush (i think it's actually a powder) brush
14. ysl parisienne fragrance
15. oversized stud earrings

also, i haven't taken any photos for a while so i snapped a few for the blog. our living room window faces a small office building and i had drawn up the blinds to get some more natural light for the photos. in the middle of posing & clicking (i was taking self portraits with a wireless remote), i noticed what looked like a silhouette of a person at the window of the office building. i'm sure i froze and i'm pretty certain my eyes bugged out about an inch. i carried on but in more of a subdued manner. when i looked back, the silhouette was gone so my paranoid personality thinks that he left to give me some privacy... meanwhile the person probably didn't even notice me. but *if* he did, oh wow, how awkward for both of us.
