In 2011 I stopped doing monthly favourites posts, and so, I decided to write a couple of posts rounding up the products that I particularly loved throughout the year. I've split the beauty products into two posts and I am thinking about doing a seperate post of non beauty favourites - jewelry, clothes, games, films etc. I have tried to link below to any posts where products mentioned have been featured.
The brand I fell in love with last year was Chanel.
Prior to 2011, I had never tried any Chanel products other than perfume, but, with my first purchase Mat Lumiere, I was hooked. Above are a selection of my favourite products I have tried so far. As I mentioned, I have fallen in love with Mat Lumiere, and I really am so sad that it's being discontinued (I've stocked up). You can read my full review of Mat Lumiere and the Poudre Universelle Libre here.
Dior Bronze Original Tan in 002 honey may be my favourite product I have discovered in 2011. In every photo I have taken since June I have wore this bronzer, I absolutely love it. It does have a slight shimmer which you can see in the bottom right hand corner, but this doesn't translate onto the skin meaning I can use it all over my face. Here is how I wore my make up to my graduation ball, pairing honey with Amber Diamond - such a beautiful combination.
