The Best of 2012

2013 is just around the corner and I'm sure every beauty blogger is getting really excited about what new beauty products we will be lusting over for the next 12 months. This year has been an amazing year for everything beauty related, with some amazing products hitting the shelves, and some even better collections being launched. 

There have been many, many products that I have loved this year, some of them were not launched this year but they have been my favourites. so without further ado, here are my favourites of 2012... (Click on each product name to find out more)

Best Foundation:
MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation. Full coverage, perfect match, long lasting. What more could you want in a foundation? I've gone through so many tubes of this, and it goes perfectly with the Mineralize Skinfinishes.

Best Lip Product:
This was a really hard category for me because I love lip products. My favourite has to be the Revlon Lip Butters. They're pigmented, creamy and moisturising, perfect for everyday wear. There is a great range of shades which can carry you all through the year.

Best Eyeliner:
Rimmel Glam Eyes liquid liner. I bought this on the way to a friends as I had forgotten my usual one. How pleased am I that this came into my life? Extremely long lasting, super pigmented, and the brush is amazing!

Best Eyelashes:
I love falsies and have so many The ones that Are my favourites are Eylure Hed Kandi: Twisted Disco lashes. They're lovely and full without looking too over the top. Perfect for a smokey eye.

Best Mascara: 
This year I've loved Soap and Glory Thick and Fast Mascara mascara. I've tried tons of mascaras this year but this is the only one that has done what I wanted it too. Thickening, Lengthening, non-drying, just all round beautiful.

Best Eyeshadows:
There was no doubt about this one. It has to be the Urban Decay Naked2 Palette. I've used this everyday since purchase, and although it has seen better days (it's definitely well loved), it's still a staple in my everyday makeup.

Best Hair Products:
I couldn't decide between my Aussie colour protect serum, or the Aussie Heat protection spray so I'm awarding this to Aussie in General as I have so many of their products. My thick, unruly hair takes some serious taming, and Aussie products do this so well.

Best Bath Product:
My bath time would not be complete without a lather of Calm One Calm All from Soap and Glory. I love how soft and luxurious this feels, and how lovely my skin feels after a long soak with this. Oh and it smells divine!

Best Moisturiser:
This has to be Palmer's Cocoa Butter. The smell, the feel, the texture, everything. I have so much love for this product, I've used it all year round, gone through so many bottles but will always return to this. 

So 2012 has been a great year for beauty and all such related products. I just hope 2013 is just as good,but I'm sure it will be just as fabulous. What have been your favourite products?
