2012 Favourites

2012 was a big year for me, beauty wise. Before starting my blog in the summer I was in a bit of a rut with the products I was using. Since then I have discovered lots of things that actually work a lot better for me. It was difficult picking things I have used all year since some of the things in my everyday routine now I have only discovered in recent months. Anyway, on to the favourites....

Vaseline: since I have only recently got into lip stains and glosses, I had to put this as a favourite as I always rely on it.

Rimmel Stay Matte foundation: I have used this for years and it lasts all day and doesn't break me out.

Rimmel Stay Matte powder: this is an addition to my make up this year as my skin got greasier, it helps keep my skin matte and gives a nice finish.

Soap & Glory Kick Ass Concealer- this is my first dual colour concealer and I love it! Full review here.

Nivea Express Hydration Primer: this means I don't have to moisturise too much and my make up stays on beautifully. Full review here.

Benefit the Porefessional: great for greasy skin!

Soap & Glory Thick and Fast Mascara: definitely a favourite this year, full review here.

17 Blow Out Jumbo Eyeliner- makes applying eyeliner so much easier, full review here.

MUA liquid eyeliner: I have found when comparing this to other liquid eyeliners that it is no different, so why pay more?

ebay Blusher Palette: I have loved experimenting with this so much. full review here.

My one and only brushes are from ecotools, I don't honestly think I could live without my foundation brush and the eyeshadow brush is so useful. To see the brushes I bought, see here.

Sally Hansen Double Duty base and top coat: much needed when I paint my nails so many different colours and so often. I have to say I favour it more as a base coat as it stays quite tacky on top, but it does make my colour last longer.

Bourjois magic nail polish remover: Still so much in love with this as it's so easy and mess free. Shame I can't use it with glitter polish though, full review here.

Models Own Top Turqoise: this colour just cheers me up, I only discovered models own this year but love the formula.

Aussie 3 minute miracle reconstructor: I love this product for lots of reasons, it's great for my hair and smells amazing.

Benefit So hooked on Carmella: I think I found my signature scent this year, this lovely vanillary perfume is my favourite!

That brings me to the end of my 2012 favourites, I would love to see other people's so send me your links in the comments below.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank my readers and fellow bloggers since this is still all quite new to me. I have a new found love of beauty products and have found lots of great things that work for me via other people's reviews and advice. Next year I imagine it'll be so much harder to decide on my favourites as if I carry on the way I'm going I'll have a much bigger stash and will have tried many more brands and products!
