Beauty Awards 2011

I thought since it's Award Season in the real world (if Hollywood is considered that) maybe I should have an award season on my blog. The academy is made up of myself. (Perhaps readers could be considered the foreign press and we could get a Golden Globes awards follow-up post.) So this first awards post is for Makeup. These are pretty much all the products that take the cake, in my opinion. There may be awards for skincare and beauty products and haircare to follow. and without further ado, welcome to the 1st annual Le Quaintrelle beauty awards! *cue symphony*
