2006, the year in beauty, and plans for 2007

Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Monday, January 01, 2007 11:34 PM (Eastern)

2006 was, oddly, a good year for me, beauty-wise.

I would say that 2006 was quite possibly the first year I felt "settled"...confident, even...about makeup and beauty products in general. I could go back and see what I was writing in 2005, of course. Oh heck let's just do that.

Eye Makeup for Green Eyes #1

Was I ever that intent on popping the green in my eyes? Who cares really? Okay, I can say that now, because virtually all of my current eye makeup stash works with my eyes. It has simply evolved.

Here's another:

Adult Acne

That's pretty settled too. I take my daily multi-vitamin, I'm on Yasmin birth control, I watch what I eat, I avoid stress as much as possible.

What else was I up to back then?

The perfect lipstick

That's fairly easy, it's got to be Chanel Hydrabase, with some MAC's in the mix. I'm not being fair, of course; there are tons of worthy lipsticks I've yet to try. I'm hard pressed to beat that Hydrabase though...and the next MAC lipstick is free for me. By the time I need a new MAC lipstick, I'll more than likely have the requisite six empty MAC containers to qualify for it. more.

The perfect blush

Conclusion: Nars the Multiple in Malibu.

There is a seemingly sudden plethora of sulfate-less shampoos and silicone-free conditioners on the market...another of 2006's concerns resolved. Carol's kind post on the subject added a breathtakingly inexpensive shampoo to my mix. Dain's Nature's Gate discovery added a daily conditioner. Aside from these, my pick for 2006 is Alba Botanica Honeydew Nourishing Hair Wash.

Now, 2007...I'd like to play more with perfumes. I'd like to actually buy that Chanel Moiré Hydrabase lipstick. Someone keeps borrowing my sample of it.

I could do with that MAC "Buried Treasure" Powerpoint eyepencil. Why? I've had my Permaplum Powerpoint for more than two years now. It takes me forever to use up an eyepencil...and it's still nice and soft and silky, it still sharpens without crumbling. My Prestige waterproof automatic has lasted just as well, but it is automatic, and I prefer the kind you have to sharpen (you get a finer point with the latter).

That's about it.
