Happy New Year's Eve, girlies!

May I please take a moment to thank all of Girlie Blog's readers for your support in the last year.

I blog because you read it -- the love is mutual, and it's as simple as that.

Now, onto the countdown...

As you know, Girlie Blog loves beauty products. From skincare to hair to makeup, this cyber corner is full of girlie and pretty products. Here are the girlie's best beauty picks of 2011:

10. Chanel Eye Precision Cream

You may cringe at the price tag -- $70 for 0.5 fl. oz -- but its creamy, consistent formula, and the way it quenches your thirsty eye area are worth the big bucks.

Plus, you don't need a lot to keep crow's feet away. Mine lasted over a year.

Consider it an investment.

9. Clinique Line Smoothing Concealer

For a beauty blogger, my makeup routine is actually modest -- just moisturizer and concealer on most days.

This concealer by Clinique gives me a smooth finish.

Like it promises, my skin looks smooth and flawless after use -- What other product can do that?

8. CoverGirl Lash Blast Volume Blasting Mascara

The fuller your lashes, the prettier your eyes. So blast those lashes with a powerful mascara.

I found CoverGirl Lash Blast by chance -- it was on sale at Target -- and became pleasantly surprised with the way it volumnized lashes while separating them individually. The effect was natural and pretty.

7. Vaseline

I use Vaseline in three ways: makeup remover, moisturizer and eye cream.

Its versatility is the reason why I love it so much.

6. Eco Tools Brush Set

Good tools are essential for good makeup. These ecotools are not only natural and environmental, they apply makeup beautifully as well.

5. N.Y.C Bronzer

This bronzer gives my face a nice stroke of sun, even if it is cloudy outside.

4. Pore Extractor

Clogged pores cause acne. No one wants that. Get a pore extractor and learn how to clear clogged pores. You will prevent acne and save money from expensive facials.

3. Clarisonic pore cleansing brush

Another way to battle clogged pores is to use a Clarisonic cleaning brush. 

This one has extra bristles to get deep into pores and clear our the mess inside.

2. Hard Candy Shadow Duo

This duo has the perfect colors for a subtle, earthy, everyday look.

1. Maybelline Fit Me Foundation

Everyone wants the perfect fit when it comes to foundation. Maybelline Fit Me Foundation applies evenly to the skin and lets your true colors come through.

At only $8 at the drugstore? This one is a total steal.

What are your favorite beauty products from 2011?

  17. I love Eco Tools as well! SO the Chanel Eyecream is totally worth the money? I think that'll be my next purchase, I had used one from clarins for $68 but didn't think it did anything. Happy New Year!

  20. Hi Miss Girlie--I shared this post on my FB wall. I have some questions: 1) Where do you use the Clinique concealer. I had one, but gave it to my daughter and she used it just under her eyes for highlighting. 2) Is the Hard Candy shadow glittery or shimmery? 3) Do you have a beauty "take" on baby oil? Blessings this new year--Kim

  21. My favorite beauty product quite honestly is olive oil. During the winter months, there's no better moisturizer. It's even good in hair if you've got frizz and no leaven conditioner handy.

    I like the products you listed too, especially the hard candy shadow.

  22. i love the ecotools brush set!

  23. I really want to try the Vaseline with Cocoa Butter. Love this post.
    Happy New Years Doll.

  24. I wish we had Hard Candy here. That baked eyeshadow duo is so pretty.

  25. Love CoverGirl Lash Blast Volume Blasting Mascara! One of my favorite makeup products!

  26. wow!! thanks for sharing the fav list...would love to try the FitMe foundation someday..=)

  27. wow these r great! I think I need to make a trip to the drug store now lol

  28. I love love love Vaseline and Eco Tools brushes too!
