My Favorite Things from 2007

It’s that time of year again, when we all start to reflect on the past year. As with last year, I’m joining my fellow beauty/fashion bloggers and recapping a few of my favorite things from 2007.

Favorite Things from 2007

Vincent Longo Lip Stains As a girl with a huge obsession with lip stains, this one took the cake for me this year. I stalked every Sephora in my area waiting for Vincent Longo’s Pearlessence Gel Stains to come in and when they finally did, it was love. This lipstain is great, it gives your lips some shimmer but it can also double as a great cheek color with some shimmer as well. Lipcolor and a highlighter in one? Who knew.

Lorac Perfectly Lit Oil Free Luminizing Powder I have to thank Sephora’s Beauty Insider program for this product. I first tried Lorac’s Perfectly Lit Oil Free Luminizing Powder as a deluxe sample and when it was finally gone, I bought a full sized version of the product. I love the shades that this product comes in, it’s a great match for my skin tone and it gives me a very pretty glow. Not only that, it blends in very well and doesn’t settle.

Ineke's After My Own Heart I would have never found this perfume on my own so I have to thank my friend for that. We swapped some perfume for makeup and I came away with this lovely perfume. It’s Ineke’s After My Own Heart and it features top notes of bergamot, raspberry and crisp green foliage, middle note of lilac and base notes of sandalwood, heliotrope and musk. All of this makes for a very freshing lilac scent. Lilac is my favorite flower but I often find most lilac scents to be too rich and overpowering. It’s not that way at all with this scent. I love the way it lingers on my skin and clothes, it’s just delicious.

Chanel's Lotus Rouge Nail Colour This year marked the first time I tried Chanel products. One of my very favorite of those products was the fall collections’s Lotus Rouge nail color. I’ve been wearing this gorgeous red shade on my hands and toes over and over again and I’m about to go for another round in just a little bit. I’ve read some opinions that this polish chips too easily but I haven’t found that to be a problem at all. Let’s hope that it continues to stay that way.

Bond No, 9 Chinatown candle This is another revelation that I have to thank my friend for, Bond No. 9’s Chinatown candle. I had never really experienced Bond No. 9 fragrances until I smelled this candle and it really opened my eyes to the wonder that is Bond No. 9. The Chinatown scent features notes of peach blossom, gardenia, tuberose, patchouli and cardamom. This makes for a beautiful floral with just the right touch of spice. Something about this scent is so sexy to me, I love burning this candle, so much that I burn it very sparingly.
