Top 12 Products of 2012 :)

Hello Hello!

I've seen many other bloggers do their 2012 favorites so I thought why not share mine? :)

Here are my Top 12 Beauty Products of 2012!

(please excuse the ugly background)

Neutrogena Oil-free Moisturiser 
It's a great light feeling foundation that isn't too light or too thick. There is no scent and I haven't broken out from it. My favourite moisturiser so far.

Natio Mineral Pressed Powder
BYS blush in Candyfloss
The Natio powder is a fine, great setting powder that isn't too dark for my skintone.
The BYS blush in Candyfloss is a perfect everyday baby pink blush that gives a nice sheen. Doesn't break the bank either.

Real Techniques Buffing Brush
My favourite brush ever! It's so dense and soft and is perfect at buffing and blending out liquid foundation. It's rounded top also makes it easy to blend around the nose.

Essence I love stage eyeshadow base
Essence eyeliner pen
The essence eyeshadow base is a great, cheap eye primer and I love using it as a concealer for my under eye circles.
I love using the essence eyeliner pen as it is a felt-tip marker applicator and is so much easier to use and control. It doesn't smudge terribly and still hasn't dried out despite me having it for months.

Maybelline Falsies mascara (original, waterproof)
My favourite mascara so far. It doesn't smudge or flake, it volumizes and lengthens decently and because it's waterproof, it holds a curl like a boss. Love it!

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette
Despite owning this for only a month, I can safely say it is my favourite eyeshadow palette :) Gorgeous, cool neutral shades that are all very pigmented and there are some matte shades too. Definitely worth the money in my opinion.

EOS lip balm in Honeysuckle Honeydew
Maybelline Baby Lips in Mango Pie
The EOS lipbalm is so adorable, and it's so fun to apply. It smells and tastes amazing too!
However, the most moisturising lip balm for me are the maybelline baby lips and my favourite flavour is the mango pie one. It's so soft and moisturising and smells delicious.

Revlon Lip Butters
These babies are definitely one of my favourite lip products ever! They're lip balms with the pigmentation of a lipstick. My favourite shades are Berry Smoothie and Tutti Frutti.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey
These balm stains are awesome! Very moisturising and lasts forever as a stain. My favourite shade is Honey because it's just so wearable!

Hope you enjoyed reading my Top 12 of 2012!

  5. A lovely collection of favourites! I like the BYS blush too and the Revlon Balm stains.

  6. I'm still on the fence about the Naked Palettes.. are they decent for someone who rarely wears eyeshadow? :P I kind of want to make up my mind now before L'Oreal has too much influence over Urban Decay and try to change the formula or something.

  7. Great favourites! I just bought the Maybelline Baby lips in mango pie the other day and I love it so much, it smells amazing and moisturises so well! I love the Real Techniques buffing brush too, as well as the Revlon lip butters haha :P I will ever wish for a Naked palette, it is just so expensive :(

  8. I really want to try the Essence eyeshadow base, I just saw it on another blogger's favourites :) I love the buffing brush, I couldn't live without it. Naked2 is a huge must for me as well!
