The Top 10 Makeup Products

by Laura Kronen on January 5, 2011

Walking up and down rows of brightly colored eyeshadows or glittering lip glosses is the girly-girl version of a little kid cut loose in a candy shop.  I can spend hours analyzing the pros and cons of mascaras that thicken, lengthen, moisturize or maximize lashes or take days deciding which is the perfect shade of red nail polish. In fact, I probably have. So, as a result of all of that pondering, testing and analyzation here are the TOP 10 BEST MAKEUP PRODUCTS that I cannot live without for 2011:

Stila Kajal Kohl Eyeliner in Topaz

Line this on the lower inner rims of your eyes and you will look instantly awake and refreshed even on a few hours sleep. It’s the secret weapon of makeup artists everywhere. $18

Lorac Multiplex 3D Lip Gloss

I’m obsessed. Lorac has some killer pink glosses and liquid lipsticks that have real staying power. The gloss re-textures the lips and smoothes away imperfections allowing color to appear more vivid and luminous. It combines a liquid lipstick and lip lacquer for high impact color and a 3-D holographic effect that will make your pout stand out. $22

Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Eyeliners

These award winning, creamy eyeliners are waterproof, smudge-proof and fade-proof. The shades you can choose from are endless, plus they glide on effortlessly with intense and long lasting color. $17

Make up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder

Get ready for your close up with this universal translucent finishing powder, which can be applied over foundation or worn alone. This microfinish powder slightly mattifies the skin-without changing its natural tone softening the appearance of imperfections and completely evening out the complexion, creating a glowing, radiant look. $30

Per-Fekt Skin Perfection Gel

I cannot sing the praises of this miraculous product enough. Per-fekt is like an invisible second skin that helps smooth, disguise, and perfect complexion imperfections such as enlarged pores, fine lines, and wrinkles. Enriched with a powerful pack of antioxidants to help repair, protect and fight future environmental skin damage, Per-fekt also helps maintain hydration, leaving the skin with a healthy glow by locking in moisture. Your skin will look PERFECT.  (pun intended) $58

Stila Illuminating Powder Foundation

True love forever it seems. I have yet to find a better powder than this one by Stila. Let your inner radiance shine through with this unique, all-in-one powder foundation. Illuminating Powder Foundation minimizes skin imperfections while maximizing sun protection with SPF 12 for ageless, timeless skin that simply glows. $28

Anastasia Brow Gel

Put and keep unruly brows in their place with this unique, non-flaky, non clumping brow gel. Comes in tinted versions as well. Just another necessary tool for a flawless face. $21

Nars Orgasm Illuminator

Light the skin from within with this complexion enhancer. Deceptively sheer, decidedly luminous, it magically transforms your skin from ordinary to extraordinary … lusciously radiant. Flirt with foundation, go it alone, go neck-and-neck with your décolletage. The effect is-well, orgasmic. $29

DiorShow Black Out Mascara

DiorShow Black Out Mascara gives your lashes a little more oomph and a lot more drama. Intensified by ultra-black, kohl pigments, the formula glides on smoothly and draws each lash out to show-stopping lengths $24

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer

An eye prep product that provides smoother, longer-lasting, and absolutely crease-proof eyeshadow. The thing I love about this product is that it comes in a few different colors and you can wear it sans eyeshadow or liner. There are three different full size shades.Original dries invisibly, Sin is a shimmering champagne shade that doubles as a highlighter. Eden is a matte, nude shade, which brightens and evens out skintone, making it ideal for more mature lids. $29
