sorry for the rubbish quality i'm still trying to learn to use my camera! (n00b)

A random post, but I just wanted to share with you all as I love it so much! This baby was a steal, £19 down from £40 (very highly doubt i'd pay full price) and i just love love love it! Its sort of galaxy-print-esque, the colours all mould into one and its so swirly and i just love it! I needed a decent sized make-up bag, one that can fit all my long (e.g. MAC 187) brushes in as well as a lot of my daily make up, and this does the job so well!
I loved reading Nicola's post about this, and as she tagged everyone else I thought I'd do my own version!

1. Rimmel Sun Shimmer Wash Off Fake Tan
I love this, its absolutely brilliant for when I can't be bothered to do a full fake-tan as I just whack it on all over with a tanning mitt and I'm good to go! I have this in the "medium shimmer" shade, and I love how glittery it is! The only thing I would say is don't wear this on a night out if its raining, massive error!
2. MAC Mineralise Skin Finish Soft and Gentle
Still cannot get enough of this even after around three and a half years! My review on this is here
3. MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC30
I've tried and loved SO many foundations this year, such as Lancome Teint Idole Ultra, Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus to name a few, but I keep coming back to this foundation! Its not the usual dewy finish that I go for, but its such a good foundation in terms of coverage, longevity and finish that I just find myself consistently going back to it! Its true, the smell is not exactly nice and the bottle could be prettier, but its definitely a top product of 2011 for me.
4. NARS the Multiple in Orgasm
I only made my first NARS purchases this year (shocking I know!) and have literally never looked back. I love the multiple not for its many uses (I actually only use it on my cheekbones), but for its lovely shimmery finish and its packaging! Its easy to use, lasts a long time, and is generally just a favourite product of mine!
5. Estee Lauder Idealist
Again I've done an in-depth review of this which you can see below, but I really do love this product, and as you can see I'm fast running out of it and although I HATE forking out the £50+ for this product, I only have to do this every 6 months so for me, its worth it.
6. Bastiste Dry Shampoo in Diva
An obvious winner, we all know what it is and what it does, this is just my favourite "flavour"!
7. MAC Brow Kit
Again, I use this every day and I love that it is again buildable (definitely end up with a scousebrow sometimes though if I'm heavy handed!)
8. NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Pop Life
When I bought this product from the website I wasn't sure how long it would last me, but I would say it doesn't last as long as a MAC lipstick does, but I love the colour SO much and the sheen it puts on my lips that it is a definite favourite.
9. Urban Decay Eyeliner in Honey
I wear this on the inside corners of my eyes where my liquid liner ends, and I draw it out to around half way across my eye, and I always get compliments whilst wearing this! Again wear it daily and love love love it.
10. Tweezerman Tweezers
11. MAC Ruby Woo Lipstick
Another "cult" product, but I'm in love with the colour and it really does last all day if I wear Redd lip pencil underneath it! The only thing that annoys me about this is that I find it a bastard to put on, the Matte formulation on this seems to me to be partcicularly difficult to apply neatly to the lips as it is a really dry lipstick, but I've got around that now and have even been known to apply it, without a mirror, whilst driving! (full concentration on the road i promise!)
So there's my final 11, please link me to yours if you've done one, would love to read everyone else's! And as usual, any questions etc get in touch!
P.S Sorry for the shit photography and the place I took the photos, but I have DSLR camera and have no idea to use it so I'm trying to learn! Bear with me!
This is a product I have been using for around 3 years now, and I think I am on my third or fourth pan? It is something that has a daily place in my makeup routine, and I will not be without it!
MAC describe it as; "A luxurious velvet-soft powder with high-frost metallic finish. Smoothes on: adds buffed-up highlights to cheeks, brows, anywhere on the body: provides an ultra-deluxe polish to the skin."
I first became aware of it after seeing it on Sarah's blog, and I'm not sure if I'm just really behind but I don't really see it on many other blogs?
Anyway, to the point. I use it at the end of my routine as a highlighter, where I basically dust it over my cheekbones, nose and forehead. It's amazing as I find that it is really buildable, so if I just want a light coverage I'll lightly dust it over, but if I'm going for a night out or something I'll really pile it on! It retails at £20.50, which I think is a pretty normal price, and even with daily useage one of these will last me around 6 months or so? So I'd say its pretty good value!
It gives such a lovely finish, its more intense than Dior Amber Diamond, and it really is such a lovely product I can't recommend it highly enough!
Also, to other subjects, I haven't really written anything like this since I graduated Uni around 18 months ago, so I know my writing is pretty shocking but please bear with me as I get back into the swing of things!
