InStyle 100 Best Beauty Buys 2010

I bought InStyle for the first time today, predominantly because of the 20% off ASOS code within - but I'm actually really pleased as it also came with a booklet about the 100 Best Beauty Buys of 2010, definately worth a read!

I decided to do a quick run through of what I agree with, disagree with and want to try on the list. I had originally planned to copy the list out but decided on giving my opinions instead.

Products I agree with:
  • Best facial exfoliator - Dermalogica Daily Microfiliant - exfoliating particles in this are so fine, you can use it every day without damaging your it actually works!
  • Best long-lasting lip colour -Max Factor Lipfinity - I'm something of a long lasting lip connoisseur and this is by far the best I've use
  • Best self tan for the body - St Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse - the mousse formula is really easy to apply and gives a nice coloured tan (I also like the Fake Bake spray too)
  • Best base coat - CND Stickey - I've blogged about this before!

Products I disagree with:
  • Best moisturiser for normal to oily skin - Creme De La Mer -I hate this moisturiser, it looks and smells cheap, contains lots of thickening agents, doesn't do anything for your skin that Nivea or similar wouldn't and I've recently been told that it allegedly costs £6 to make (don't know how true that is though!)
  • Best moisturiser with self tan - Johnson's Holiday Skin Body Lotion - PAH! The best is Loreal Nutrisummer in my opinion
Products I want to try:
  • Best mask for congested skin - Eve Lom Rescue Mask - sadly with a £46.98 price tag, trying is unlikely!
  • Best spot treatment - Dermalogica Overnight Clearing Gel
  • Best wash-off cleanser - Shu Uemura Cleansing Oils
  • Best compact foundation - Chanel Teint Innocence Compact
  • Best stick foundation - Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick
  • Best top coat - Seche Vite

Best get saving up really!


  1. It's really cool that they have a few cheaper brands in there, like Maxfactor and Johnsons.

  2. Yeah they had quite a lot of "best lower priced mascara" categories and things, I was pretty pleased it wasn't all £150 face creams and £40 false lashes :-)


Thank you for commenting, I read them all!
