the goners, the veterans, the rookies and the newbies

the title sounded like a movie title, don't it? (^_^) i figured that since it's the last day of 2011, i might as well wrap up the year by sharing the products i didn't really fancy (Disappointments), to the oldies (staples in my makeup arsenal) but goodies (All-time favorites), to the newly loved products (as in discovered in 2011) i do adore (Promising Newcomers) and recent purchases that looks good but i've yet to try myself (Beautiful Discoveries). i could also tell you of what others things i hate and love about this year that's not beauty-related but maybe some other time - since most of my previous posts have been personal and maybe some are not really inclined to read about them. :) my apologies about not replying to some of your queries or some delay in publishing your comments - i'm really just making "sulit" of the holiday season to spend with my hubby and kids.

(~_^) do look out for it tomorrow when i announce it right here. again, thank you for your support in 2011 and i look forward to your further support in 2012!

what did you love and hate in 2011?
