Hi pretties! To start with i have to apologize for lack of post's lately although i think everyone is in the same boat at this time of year! Lots of exciting things have been happening, my beautiful daughter Indie turned 1 just before Christmas and didnt she just have the time of her life! I hope you all had a happy and safe Christmas,ours was spent with family opening gifts and enjoying all that delicious Christmas food (i would be lying if i said it wasn't one of my favorite parts!). It was also extra special this year as Indie was old enough to enjoy her presents and get spoiled,that made my day :)
Today's post is about my favorite products throughout 2012 that i would not of been able to live without, so i have selected my favorite product for each category and in some cases 2 (there were some very good products this year!)
L'Oreal Lumi Magique Foundation-This has been my favorite foundation for the last few months and i will not be replacing it any time soon! This is designed to give you that lit-from-within glow,whilst i dont know about that i find it gives you a flawless finish without looking cakey and the coverage is buildable. This is great for anyone who likes medium to full coverage and the shade i am is "Golden Sand".
Essence Lipstick- This is hands down for my the winning lip product for the year! I LOOOOVE these lipsticks! They go on so creamy,dont flake and last for ages and best of all are only $3.50! My favorite shade is "In The Nude" .
Mac Cream Colour Base in "Hush"- This is a creamy blush that is a peachy-golden colour and i have never found another blush like it. It gives you the most beautiful glow and makes you're skin look radiant and last's for me alot longer than powder blush.
Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencils- As the winner of this category i was going to give it to my Inglot 40 eyeshadow palette but i felt like that was cheating lol so something else that i use almost every single day are my NYX jumbo eye pencils. There are so many colours to choose from and are a perfect base for you're eyeshadow,as long as you use an eye primer i find they do not crease. My favorite colours are Milk,Black Bean and Sparkle Leopard.
Urban Decay's eye pencil in "Perversion"- This is the best black eye liner i have ever used. It is the blackest black and lasts for hours and hours. As its a little more on the pricier side i have searched high and low for good dupes of it but cannot find anything that comes close it is amazing! If you are an eyeliner fan you must try this!
The Balm "Nude Tude" Palette- I have seen so many favorites this year with the Naked palette in them but for me i much prefer this palette! To be honest i haven't had it all that long but it has quickly become something that i use daily. The colours are very pigmented and are all a little different to anything i have i have a post coming up shortly with swatches and a look!
Kleancolour Nail Polish- I only discovered these nail polishes this year and i have fallen in love with them! They last just as well,if not better than high end nail polishes and are so in-expensive (i believe they are around $3 each) they have a huge colour selection and dry quickly.
Juuce "Argan Soft" Shampoo & Conditioner- I have been using this shampoo and conditioner for the better part of the year and it is amazing! What i like about it,is it is so nourishing and conditioning on the hair but is in no way heavy and it gives so much shine!
Beauty Blender Sponge- I discovered this sponge early on in the year and have used it every day since to apply my foundation. I have never got a smoother,more flawless result with brushes,other sponges or my fingers for applying foundation. I love my makeup brushes but i will always continue to use this for my foundation.
DKNY "Pure" Perfume- This has become my signature scent this year after one of my best friends bought it back from over seas for me. This is the perfect perfume for me as its soft enough for the day time but still nice for night time and its not sickly sweet.It has notes of jasmine,peony and honeysuckle.
Thats my favorites for 2012! Have you tried any of these products? I also wanted to thanks all of my beautiful followers for you're support this year,i have met the most beautiful people this year through this blog and each and everyone of you mean the world to me :) thanks for stopping by and dont forget to leave you're thoughts on my favorites below!
