My top 25 must have products for 2010

Last year I was fortunate enough to be able to try out a myriad of products. These are my top 25 - some are new on the market and some are old favorites but all of them are now in my kit or my bathroom!

In no particular order:

  1. Hourglass Fluid Veil  - this is my foundation of choice for my clients and myself. Every client I've tried it on has gone out immediately to buy it!
  2. Sampar Nocturnal Lifting Mask  - I've almost finished my jar of this. It's especially great for those nights when you know you won't get enough sleep but want to look like you have the morning after!! 
  3. Defabulous Clipless Curling Irons  - I like my hair to look at bit beachy, a bit rocker, and with these it has never been so easy. I never look like my hair has been done, just effortlessy tousled.
  4. Moroccan Oil Hydrating Styling Cream  - since I discovered this amazing styling cream I haven't had a bad hair day!MOROCCAN OIL: HYDRATING STYLING CREAM FOR ALL HAIR TYPES 10.2 OZ
  5. Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser  - this is the Rolls Royce of cleansers/makeup removers in my opinion. It cleanses makeup and the days grime off thoroughly but gently and leaves skin soft and glowing.
  6. Colorscience Pro Corrector Kit  - this has fast become one of my kit essentials and one of my clients wanted one as soon as she saw it. It is a powder concealer kit that corrects everything from dark circles under the eyes to skin discolorations - genius!
  7. Janson Beckett Alpha Derma CE  - as anyone who has read my blog knows, I LOVE this moisturizer! It tightens and smooths skin instantly and with continued use diminishes lines and wrinkles.Alphaderma CE 4 fl oz
  8. Talika Eye Decompress  - I was sent these little gems just before the holidays last year and they were my saviour. Whenever I felt (or worse looked!) tired I popped one on for 10 mintues and they immediately rid me of dry lines and dark circles under my eyes.
  9. Covergirl Exact Liner  - I think I must've bought out Covergirl's stock of this last year! The quality is that of a much more expensive range but is very affordable. It creates a dense line easily with it's felt tip formula.
  10. Estee Lauder Maximum Cover Camouflage Makeup for Face and Body Estee Lauder Maximum Cover Camouflage Makeup For Face And Body Spf 15 Creamy Vanilla  - this is an amazing base that I use to cover all sorts of things from blemishes to tattoos. It is completely waterproof but is lightweight and can be used all over to create a long lasting base.
  11. Christian Dior 5 Couleurs Designer Eyeshadow Palette - It has been a long time since I was so excited over an eyeshadow palette but when I saw these I begged for all of the shades! There are 4 different color ways but all of them have the most gorgeous glitter shadow in them. It is very subtle with minute sparkles but turns any eyeshadow instantly into a glamorous evening look.
  12. St. Tropez Gradual Tan for Face - I have just started using this and already I can tell it will be a staple in my makeup bag. It gives a really natural looking glow in a few hours and you can build it into a deeper color with repeated use.
  13. Glowelle Beauty Drink - I took this for 30 days and I swear it has improved my skin. I definitely have less lines and my skin looks dewy. It's worth a try!Glowelle Powder Raspberry Jasmine 30 Day Powder Stick Pack, 30-Count Box
  14. Tria Beauty Laser Hair Removal  - An at home laser hair removal system. An unbelievable price for a simple system that removes hair permanently. No more expensive salon vists - EVER!
  15. Nu Face - I've had this hand held facial toning system for a while now and after I use it people always ask me if I've had some work done - should I let them into my secret??NuFace Microcurrent Toner for Lifting and Toning the Face
  16. Neil George Indian Gooseberry Treatment Oil - Not only does this smell beautiful, it has also banished my dry ends. My friend asked me what it was that I was using as my hair looked much better, I didn't know whether to be flattered or insulted?!
  17. Luminess Air - I had been resisting airbrushing until I came across this compact little system. I am now officially a convert! So easy to use (on yourself and others) and gives the most professional finish and flawless looking base. It can also be used to even out skin tone all over the body.Luminess Air® Airbrush BEAUTY System - BC-100
  18. Fake Bake Instant Self-Tanning Spray - A tan in a can! So quick and effortless to apply. I spray this on before a night out and can get dressed straight away as it dries instantly (quick tip - blend any areas that you sprayed too heavily with a small dark towel to even it out).
  19. Orlane Light Box - If you are looking for a gift for a girl or for yourself (you deserve it!) don't look any further than this. I love this series of treatments to brighten skin before a special night out. It leaves you looking radiant and feeling pampered.
  20. Guerlain Parure Powder Foundation - Such an amazing powder foundation. It covers well but leaves skin looking luminous. Perfect for touch ups throughout the day or night too.
  21. Givenchy Phenomen'eyes Mascara - This is the mascara whose unusual brush stirred the beauty world. It looks like a medieval torture system but gets to every little lash providing immense volume, length and definition.
  22. Karin Herzog Silhouette Anit Cellulite Body Cream - An anti cellulite cream that actually works! Not that I have any of course....Karin Herzog Silhouette Body Cream,4% Oxygen ( 5.18 oz..)
  23. Sibu Beauty Cellular Support Dietary Supplement - I'm becoming a big fan of beauty supplements that work from the inside. I was introduced to this range of products a couple of months ago and am already finding that this is making my nails grow at a rapid rate! I can't wait to see what it does for my skin and hair.Sibu Cellular Support Antioxidant & Omega 7 Complex
  24. B. Kamins Bio-Maple Antipruritic Cream - This cream erdaicated a dry itchy rash I had on the back of my neck in days. A wonder cream methinks!
  25. Skindinavia 10 Years Younger Makeup Finish Skindinavia 10 Years Younger Makeup Finish 2 oz - A definite must have product in my kit. It sets makeup whilst leaving the skin looking dewy and fresh but not shiny. It stops it settling into lines and gets rid of any powdery look.
