Hey folks,

As I watched the rain pelting down in Port-of-Spain, as 2009 slowly draws to a close, I began to think about all the wonderful and not so wonderful things that have come out in the past year.  In a tough economic climate, I had to be very selective about the products that I purchased.  I cut down A LOT on my spending on makeup, haircare and bodycare.  So here are the things that survived the cut in 2009 and that I thought were great products.

  • Maybelline Lash Stiletto
  • M.A.C. Mineralized Eye Shadow in Cinderfella (They did a really great job at this formula, it’s perfect for a festive Old Year’s/New Year’s fete!)
  • M.A.C. Greasepaint Paintstick
  • Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Uber
  • NARS Blush in Crazed
  • Kinky Curly Come Clean
  • Qhemet Biologics Amla & Olive Heavy Cream
  • Oyin Handmade Burnt Sugar Pomade
  • And all that purple that reigned!!! (Seriously, I have an all purple wardrobe complete with matching makeup and nail colour!)
  • All of Zoya’s MatteVelvet polishes

So my list is kinda short, but I’ll fix that in 2010!!!! I definitely hope that I could branch out even more and discover more brands especially natural/organic ones!

So what made your list in 2009??? What do you hope the companies come out with in 2010?

Have a great Old Year’s, fete hard but be safe!!!
