Top 10 Award!

I'm so over the moon right now!  I was just tagged by Nory at Fierce Makeup and Nails for the Top 10 Award!

This award is all about your top 10 beauty related products and passing this on to 10 top blogs.

Since I don't use a number of the products listed in the original tag, I've decided to change up the questions (feel free to do so on your own blog).

Here are my favorites:

Hand and body cream: True Blue Spa Super Rich Body Cream in Shea Butter and Cerave cream

Foundation: I don't use foundation, but the closest to this I suppose would be Cover Girl AquaSmooth CG Smoothers or their tinted moisturizer

Mascara: Maybelline Falsies, the blackest of the black

Makeup Remover: I just use baby oil to remove my eye makeup and Dove bar soap to wash

Base coat: It changes per bottle, but right now I'm using Sinful Colors base coat that is 3 Free and let me tell you, I'm very much a fan (and it's only $4!)

Top Coat: I know this might shock people, but I swear by NYC's clear quick dry.  For $2, it dries in a flash, shines like nothing else, and keeps my mani put.  I wouldn't use anything else!

Nail polish brand: Ugh, so many!  I gravitate towards Sally Hansen, Revlon, Essie, OPI, China Glaze, and Brucci.  The major selling points are typically the color and the brush.

Body Wash: I have super sensitive skin so good ol' Dove white bar soap

Perfume: Dior Miss Dior Cherie eau de parfum (the eau de toilette just doesn't smell as sweet)

Lip balm: I carry Aquaphor everywhere I go.  More natural than Vaseline, I literally slather this over my entire face at night to get a balmy, dewy look in the morning.  Nory just sent me my first EOS balm, so I'm also very much enjoying that at the moment :)

Now it's your turn!  I tag:

The Polished Panda
Wacky Laki

And the rules, of course:

1. Thank the person who tagged you and link their blog.
2. Put the Top 10 award logo on your blog.
3. List your top 10 cosmetics/beauty/health.
4. Choose 10 bloggers to tag, link their blogs, and let them know.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to let these bloggers know individually tonight, so I hope they're reading and will take the opportunity to accept this tag.  Congrats, ladies!

Thank you again to Nory!
