in Peaches Blush Beauty Awards 2011

After unveiling the Readers Choice Beauty Awards yesterday, it is now time for “ta-tada-tadaaaa”   – the Editors Choice Results ! (Said in a deep, Big Boss voice!). Thats just the fancy name i give to pick my favourites and the products that i truly feel are the best in their category. Now obviously, i haven’t tried all the products in the world but out of the sizeable chunk i experiment with, here are my favourites.

Reviews for each of these are on P&B (Except a few) . Please use the search box on the top right to search and i shall also link the reviews next to each product in a little bit!

Why BB only in Delhi :( I’d love to try Bobby Brown Lipsticks. Many maybelline products have become very famous.
The superstay lipsticks happen to be one of my favourites :P I know the texture is hard to handle.
But they stay really long and that is something I really want in my lipsticks cos I don’t like to do touch ups when I’m out :)

Colorbar I-Glide Eye Pencils Are Just The Best Except For The Fact That They Are So Creamy, So a Lot of Product Gets Wasted in The Sharpening Proces.. Maybelline High Shine Lip glosses Are a Total Love! Loved These,Mehak :)

I agree with Revelon Ultimate Suede for disappointing product. I bought one and though the colour stays all day, it makes my lips as dry as my jute bag. And the colour doesn’t stay if you wear it over/under lipbalm. So basically lose-lose.
Anti-ageing cream, I love Forest Essentials Eternal Youth Date & Litchi. It gives a very supple spongy quality to my skin. The anti-ageing effects of course weren’t visible on me so I gave it to my mom and I love the effect, she looks a lot less pigmented and skin looks smoother.

Colorbar I glide pencils were soft when I bought them but now after a year they have hardened and need to be rubbed hard to apply.in fact faces pencils, which I bought the same time are still soft and easy to apply.
So I would not buy I glides again.
I am surprised you have not included Revlon superlustrous– they have been consistently good and the newer ones are even better.I think Revlon super lustrous are great so is maybelline

Anti-ageing, Boots No 7 and they have a set for each decade now. I know someone who is using it and it has really made a difference!

Do try I.C.O.N. hair products, especially shampoos and Infusion mask- for fine, dry hair that gets super moisturised without losing any volume, and less nasty stuff in the product itself/ or their Indian range, esp hair finish oil for difficult to manage hair.

What’s the L’Oréal tinted moisturiser like? I’ve been wanting to buy a good tinted moisturiser since long! Do you use foundation over it?
