As we approach New Year's weekend, I thought about writing a Best in Beauty for 2011 feature. After struggling to contain the list of items that might merit inclusion, I realized that I tried all year to feature the Best Things in Beauty. I seldom took the time to tell you about products that disappointed me (high end and low), although I did occasionally when they were "hot," and I wanted you to pull out your wallet "fully informed."
This was actually a banner year for makeup, skin care, fragrances, tools, hair care, and everything beautiful. Never mind that it was also a banner year for weather events we'd all like to forget. We focused on what's beautiful in our worlds. I had fun. I hope you did.
So, today, we'll use the Friday Forum for you to name the Best Things in Beauty for 2011. What were your favorites? Which products or colors knocked your socks off? What new products or brands became your stand-by's, the ones you reach for almost every day? If you had to limit your selections to no more than 10, what would they be? I think we'll have fun learning from one another. Just leave your faves in a comment.
Naturally, we can also start our usual weekend conversation. Do you have a question others might be able to answer? Want to talk about skin care? What's new in your life? Just use the comments. Don't be shy. Just make sure to ask any question you might have over the weekend. By early the next week, most (not all) readers have moved on.
