It's always so nice to make these lists :D So here is my BEST OF 2009. Well, at least some of my new favorites, I always forget many products. LOL

Available in two formulations: Normal - Dry skin and Normal - Oily skin."

Hair product: Redken Woolshake
-a must for my super fine baby hair :D I can't live without this! It's very expensive but worth the money, at least to me. Works best in shorter hair. Serious VOLUME!

"Cotton infused gel slush"

Eyeliner: MAC Fluidlines (Blacktrack, Dipdown, Blitz&Glitz)
-The best gel liner I've tried.

"Ultra-smooth, Fluidline’s gel formula provides the precision of a liquid liner with a silkier, softer finish. Goes on “foolproof” with a brush in an easy dip-and-stroke action. Long-wearing. Smudge-proof."

Lip gloss: MAC Cremesheen lip glass
-And I don't even like lips glosses :D I love the color but the inci is not that nice :P I prefer natural ingredients.
-price: 22€ in Finland
-I just got lip glosses from Suds n Sass and I really like these too, maybe Suds n Sass in my own color (see my previous posts ;) is even nicer that MAC!

"A lip finish that fuses the creamy, sheen-filled nature of Cremesheen Lipstick with the shine of M∙A∙C Lipglass. Soft, comfortable, non-sticky. Applies with a doe-foot applicator."

Corrector: Make up Store Cover all mix (Cover all blue)
-well, covers all :D Great for my dark under eyes. Formula is very dry & pigmented, I sometimes mix this with Aromaleigh Just the balm ma'am-lip balm.
-29 € (Cover all blue separately 18 €)

"Cover All Mix is a high pigmented concealer that neutralizes and covers. The yellow concealer covers red areas such as spots and blood vessels. The orange-red concealer covers blue areas like dark rings under the eyes. The beige concealer lightens up skin tones and the other to concealers. It is also perfect as a primer for your eyeshadows."

-Ingredients: Titanium Dioxide, Yellow Oxide, Mica, Glycerine, Castor Seed Oil, Cetyl Stearyl Alcohol, Olive Fruit Oil, Beeswax, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Gycine Soybean Lipids, Lauryl Saurate, Carnauba Wax, and Candillia Wax.

"Eye Shadow primer from Detrivore Cosmetics is soft and creamy. Just a tiny amount can help keep your shadow on all day. It is designed to help adhere loose eye shadow, glitters, and pigments. It is also somewhat water resistant, although not water proof.

The Eye Shadow Primer from Detrivore Cosmetics is safe and natural.This is a handmade formula that took months of effort, experiments, and research. I believe that my shadow primer is one of the best natural primers for sale. There will be imperfections because it is hand blended and poured. "

Lip balm: Aromaleigh Aromatherapy lip balms

-Price: 14 USD/ 25 g jar
-Inci: Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide, Boron Nitride, Iron Oxides

"Matte, not flat - that's our motto. Foundation should leave your skin feeling light and creamy, not greasy or dusty. Our mineral foundations use natural ingredients that actually improve your skin by soothing away any irritation and helping protect you from UV rays. No clogged pores or mysteriously melting makeup here! And you get all this from a powder foundation? Genius!"

Perfume: Estee Lauder Sensuous
-I love this warm, feminine scent!

"features notes of ghost lily accord, magnolia, jasmine petals, molten woods, amber, sandalwood, black pepper, juicy mandarin pulp and honey. It starts out rich and syrupy and sweet — it is vaguely reminiscent of the spiced stewed fruits opening that characterizes so many Serge Lutens fragrances, albeit done here in a lighter, less exotic cast " From NST.

Mascara: LashStiletto waterproof
-I didn't like the regular version at all but this wp is my favorite mascara now! I really like the long and slim brush, holds the curl very well.

I'd love to see your lists too :D You can find Saila/ The Adventurous Purple Koala's list from here.


  1. Moikka,

    paljon MACin fluidlinet maksaa Suomessa? Oon ajatellut hankkivani ainakin yhden tän kaikkien hehkutuksen jälkeen :)

  2. Moikka Emma :)
    Alle 20€ (voin tarkistaa myöhemmin) ja ovat toisaan hintansa väärtit! Olen testannut monia halvempia mutta tässä on vain koostumus kohdillaan. Kuivahtaneista en ole kuullut, ehkä tämä purkki on parempi kuin halvemmissa?

  3. Mäkin listasin! Lol, jotenkin ei yhtään yllätä että meillä molemmilla on Detrivoren Primer ja Sassyn pohja :D

    Arvaa kuka tilaa Fyrinnaelta tässä pian! Ja Aromaleighilta!

  4. Thank you for the list! I just bought the Detrivore primer.

  5. Sagu:
    Ei yllätä ei :D

    I really love that primer! It might not work on oily lids so well, a least not without other primer (like Too Faced insurance).

  6. :o I forgot all about the detrivore primer until now! That was to go on my "things I must buy and try" list. But Fyrinnae stole all my money last night LD

  7. AxSDenied:
    Yes, you definitely need to try Detrivore primer :D

    I was just able to make order (and payment) to Fyrinnae! *HAPPY*

  8. Thanks for listing you favs! I use a few and need to try some that I haven't tried yet!

    Wishing you and your family a happy New Year!

  9. I keep meaning to try the Detrivore primer, since UDPP and TFSI both crease on me. Great list! I might do one too.

  10. Lyndsey:
    Happy new year to you & your family too :)

    I hope it works! It might need other primer though if you have oily lids.

New Aromaleigh products for face (primer, powders, foundations)

Vain englanniksi, omaa tekstiä on vähemmän ja menee muuten liian sekavaksi :)

illuminata luxe mineral finishing powder
Yay! "diamond" powder without silica! I can use some silica but better if not too much... So I prefer products without it. This made skin look very radiant. Me likey! I already bought a full size of this :D "Aromaleigh "Illuminata Luxe" Finishing Powder is a translucent, sheer loose mineral cosmetic powder, that contains reflective minerals to give your skin a subtle, more radiant appearance. Fine lines and wrinkles are less dominant, and a fine finish is revealed. It takes the Illuminata formula a step further with the addition of a revolutionary light-diffusing diamond copolymer, which is a spherical powder with an entrapped photoluminescent diamond core. This diamond copolymer ingredient, while not "mineral" or "natural" in nature, adds great benefit to this Finishing Powder's ability to impart a soft-focus effect and …

Yksi paletti, kymmenen bloggaajaa: NYX Professional Makeup Perfect Filter Olive You

Charlotta Eve sai idean projektista, jossa bloggaajat toteuttavat omanlaisensa meikin käyttäen samaa luomiväripalettia. Mukaan lähti 40 kauneusbloggaajaa. Meidät jaettiin kymmenen hengen ryhmiin, joilla jokaisella on oma luomiväripalettinsa NYX Professional Makeupilta.
Tämä viikko on omistettu Olive You -paletille ja tässä oma meikkitoteutukseni sillä. Postauksen lopusta löydät linkit yhdeksään muuhun blogiin, joista löytyy paletilla tehty meikki. Viime viikon Marine Layer -meikit olivat uskomattoman erilaisia, mielenkiintoista nähdä mitä muut ovat tällä paletilla loihtineet! Omani on aika tyypillinen ja "minun näköiseni". Paletti oli ihana, niin laadultaan kuin väreiltäänkin, ja luomivärinappien koko oli ilahduttavan suuri.

Paletit meille sponsoroi, joka myös antoi alekoodin lukijoille: Ostamalla kolme NYX Professional Makeup -tuotetta saat edullisimman niistä puoleen hintaan koodilla NYXZIEUJB.

Vänttisen (Arja's Art) valjaat kissoille & Power of Nature-kissanruoka

*This post about cat products is only in Finnish, sorry!*

Tässä muutamia kuvia lempivaljaistamme, Vänttisistä :) Arja Vänttiseltä saa myös aivan loistavaa palvelua ja valjaat tehdään mittojen mukaan samaan hintaan. Valjaat ovat pehmoiset ja todella helpot laittaa kissalle. Myös lapset ja mummit onnistuvat näiden laitossa hyvin :D Plussaa siitä, että solkia on vain yksi ja sekin on laadukas. Valjaita löytyy niin kissoille, koirille kuin kaneillekin. Valmistajan lisäksi näitä saa mm. Mustista&Mirristä ja Megaeläimestä. Kissanvaljaiden hinta alle 20€. Meillä on näitä koosta XXS kokoon L.

Suosittelen Vänttisiä erittäin lämpimästi muillekin :)

Valmistaja: Arja's Art

Toinen ehdoton suosikkimme on Power of Nature-kissanruoka! 80% lihaa eikä mitään turhuuksia!
