The Best Products of 2007

235 fotolia 2826322 s The Best Products of 2007 I went through the posts of the past year seeking out the favorite new products that I reviewed. The following are the results.

I found all of these to be excellent products. Some are expensive, but well worth the money. Others are highly affordable, making them an even better buy! Each link is to my full review.

Estee Lauder Resilience Lift Extreme, Moisturizing Foundation: The best moisturizing foundation that I tried all year.

Estee Lauder Tender Blush: I really love this cream blush. The stick applicator makes it easy to carry and use.

Freeze 24/7 Lip Plumper: This is the only lip plumper I tried that I thought that maybe, just maybe, I saw some actual plumping. It has the best tingle too!

Cat Cosmetics Lip Liner: The best neutral lip liner ever, hands down!

M.A.C. Paint Pots: I adore MAC’s new paint pots. This eyeshadow goes on like a cream, but dries to a silky finish that lasts and lasts without creasing.

Rimmel Vinyl Lip Gloss and Loud Mouth Lip color: Absolutely the best value lip gloss and color out there!

Revlon Makeup Eraser Pen: As I predicted would be the case, this was the best purchase I made all year. I have put mine to good use erasing mascara and eyline smudges and mistakes.

Vita Amazonia DMAE Moisturizing Cream: An expensive, but highly effective, anti-aging night cream.

ColorScience Powder Sunscreen: Gotta love a way to put on sunscreen over makeup!

Jane Cosmetics Blushing Earth Sheer: A high quality, high pigment, drugstore blush that is a dead ringer for Nars orgasm, but at a tiny fraction of the cost.

DHC White Sunscreen: For those with melasma or hyperpigmentation, this sunscreen is a winning combination of a physical blocker plus arbutin as a treatment active.

Schwarzkoph Bonacure Moisture Kick Spray Conditioner: Incredible for heat protection and extra conditioning. I have gone through several bottles of this since reviewing it.

Bioelements Pumice Peel: My absolute favorite scrub.

CoverGirl Lash Exact: I tried a lot of mascaras this year. Some I really liked and some I really disliked. It was hard to pick a true favorite, but I finally decided that Lash Exact was the best of the new ones in 2007.

Revlon Pinch Me Gel Blush. A great cheek stain in gel form and available in several shades. For those wishing to save money, it is a good alternative to Benetint.

ProFoot Slik Stick, anti-blister stick: This stuff works prety well to help prevent blisters. Use it with your strappy sandals to avoid strap rash as well.

Beauty Buyble Book and Samples: A wonderful way to sample a bunch of products, plus read about them. The book can still be purchased, but it is going fast. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a 2008 version, but have yet to hear of anything.

  1. I’m actually on the fence about MAC Paint Pots. I bought one in Painterly and I find it to be a little dry – or at least it dries too quickly and becomes a little hard to work with. So, I’ve been using the one color as sort of a base and am hesitant to try additional colors.

    Do you have any color recommendations that you like in the Paint Pots?

  2. I adore your blog and would love to trade links! trendinista.blogspot.com

  3. Nilla cookie: Yeah, they do dry fast! I have found that applying them with a cheap concealer brush makes blending them quickly a bit easier. I tend to love them for a super neutral look. I use painterly as a base, bare study as a highlight under the brow, and groundwork in the crease and at the corner. Sometimes I replace groundwork with constructivist. I find that the paintpots give a bit more depth to the light natural colors than powder does, yet any blending mistakes are not noticable because of the neautral, light colors.

  4. Jill: Neat blog that you have there! I will get you added to my blogroll. Nilla Cookie, I’m adding you too!

  5. Thanks for the Rimmel recommendation! I’ve been trying to get back into some drugstore items, especially lip products!

  6. I totally agree about the Freeze 24/7 PlumpLips. I’m addicted because it actually enhances my lip color and feels so moisturizing. I’d have one in every shade, if not for the $40 price tag.

  7. Thanks for the additional color recommendations, Carleen! And for the blogroll add! :)

  8. I am trying to find a new product that I saw reviewed in O magazine by Sally Hansen. It is called Sally Hansen Beauty Fast Concealer,a violet sensation for under our eyes. can you review this product and tell me where I can purchase In Baltimore Md. area. Thank you

    Hi Kaye! It sounds like you are looking for the Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Fast concealer, which comes in natural and tinted/color correcting shades. I have reviewed the natural shade concealer and liked it quite a bit, although I have not tried the violet shade. I love the entire Natural Beauty line.

    Here is the link to my concealer review: http://www.beautyandfashiontech.com/2008/05/sally-hansen-natural-beauty-foundation-concealer-and-powder.html

    The line is fairly easy to find and quite affordable. I have seen it at CVS drugstores and Osco drugstores. Target, however, does not appear to carry it yet.

    I will also take a look at perhaps reviewing the color correcting shades in the future.
