The best of 2012

Hello lovelies,

2012 has come to an end and it is soon time to ring in the new year and say hello to 2013. But before 2013 gets here, we need to highlight some of the best products of 2012.

The best of the beauty products....

Face:
Garnier bb cream
I raved about how much I loved this product when I did my review a few months back and have since repurchased this product. I use it everyday when I do my makeup and it has just the right amount of coverage I need. It does have a dewey finish so I also set it with either a translucent powder or my mineral foundation.

Hard Candy sheer envy face primer
I LOVE this primer. It has a smooth silicone texture and glides on so effortlessly. I use this primer anywhere I have redness and also under my eyes so my concealer stays on all day. Amazing product and so cheap. If you have not tried this primer, go buy it NOW!!!!!

Cheeks
Covergirl blush trio in purely plum (I can't remember the number, I think it's 220). I love this blush because you can create so many looks with the colours or use each on its own. This blush is perfect for every skintone and all three colours are a must have in every girls collection.

Lips
Rimmel moisture renew is my top fav lipstick brand, as it is one of the only ones I have tried that does not dry out or look cakey on my lips. I have a couple of colours I love, but my fav this year has been lily extase 340. I love this colour for a bold look in the summer and for the fall it is perfect paired with a purple liner.
My second favourite lipstick of the year is Mac snob. This is the perfect barbie pink and you can tone it down by just patting the colour on and putting a sheer pink/nude colour lip balm on top. I love pairing it with my peach kiss baby lips.

Skincare
Merida fresh clean cleansing wipes from ...are you ready... the dollar store!! I love these wipes, they remove all of my makeup and do not break me out at all. They have a very faint scent and are so soft. The best $1.25 I have ever spent. If you live in Canada, then head to your nearest Dollarama and pick these babies up!!!

Eyes
Hands down my naked2 palette by urban decay is my favourite eyeshadow palette of the year and probably of all time. It has a number of matte and shimmery shades that are perfect for everyday. Tease, bootycall and pistol are my fav shades for a perfect smokey eye. Myself having green eyes I find this cool toned palette just the right aray of shades for me.

Hair
It is so hard to narrow it down, but I was able to pick just 2 my shimmerlights purple shampoo and my Garnier leave-in conditioner. Anyone who bleaches their hair and does not have these two products must go pick them up right away. Both of these products have helped to give me the perfect and healthy shade of platinum blonde hair that I now have. I cannot live without either of these products.

Nails
I recently got a bunch of nail products from avon and have fallen in love with their gel strength base coat. I have very thin and frail nails and this base coat fills in all of the ridges I have, making for a smooth application everytime I apply nail polish.
My fav colour of the year is this diy berry colour that I made. I wear it no matter what season it is!!!

Scent/perfume
Calvin Klein summer is my fav summer scent of the year. It is feminine and girlie and I love it.
For fall and winter I have fallen in love with Victoria Secrets bombshell body mist. It has just the right amount of spice and is still really feminine too.

I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you have found some newbproducts that you can also fall in love with. Comment below what your fav products of 2012 are.

I hope you all have had an amazing 2012 that you can look back at and be proud of. I hope you have memories that you can look back at and cherish. I also hope you all have a fantastic and blessed 2013. May God bless you all and your families in the year to come.

    1. Their bb cream is so good and it lasts all day with a powder over. However it is quiet moisturising so I would not recommend it for oily skin types.
