2012 favourites!

Monday, 31 December 2012

2012 has been my 'main chunk of my blogging life', so I have discovered so many lovely products!
It was hard to narrow this down, but the products here are just my absolute favourites from this year!

 2012 make up favourites

This has been my most used eye shadow palette of 2012.
I just love the quality, the lasting time, the shades and the price.
This is a real staple in my make up collection

This has been a recent discovery, but I've found my all time favourite foundation!
My skin is dull, often dry and red from eczema and has a couple blemishes (lovely).
But this foundation covers it all and makes my face look so glowly!

I have loved this blush for a long time.
It's just an easy to wear gorgeous shimmery peach.

Elf tickled pink blush
Another blush favourite, this time from elf (the purse is happy)
I really like the colour of this, just a subtle, everyday, light matte pink.
The quality for the price is unbelievable!

As I mentioned earlier my skin isn't in the best condition.
This concealer covers everything, it's amazing
It's perfect for my handbag, covers dark circles without caking and leaves such a natural finish.

2012 hair care favourites

Only a few hair care favourites from the year, but honestly these are amazing products! 
I've tried a lot of hair products and they have been good, but these are really really good!

I don't even have coloured hair so can't comment on this extending the life of my hair colour.
But, this has given my hair so much shine! 
It's a really quick fix for out of control, dull and frizzy hair!
It's leaves my hair super sleek and full of life!

Aussie take the heat deep treatment
This is the hair mask my hair has been waiting for!
It's just so thick and creamy and really moisturises my hair deeply.
It leaves it really soft and manageable too!

L'oreal elvive extraordinary oil
Quite a recent discovery, but it's my favourite oil!
Even over moroccanoil (something I thought I'd never say)
It just ticks all the right boxes, moisture, shine, smells good, controls frizz, the lot!

2012 everything else favourites

Soap and glory sugar crush body scrub
Probably my nicest 'scent' discovery of 2012!
It just reminds me of lime coke and it's a fab exfoliator!
(I actually only just tired soap and glory for the first time this year, I'm hooked!)

Body shop body butters
In general, I've been loving the body shop body butters!
I use them everyday to moisture and make my skin smell delightful.
Almond and cocoa have been my faves!

Liz earle super skin concentrate
I love liz earle skin care products, they are just so natural.
This oil has sorted out some pretty bad dry phases and even oily ones!
It has a relaxing scent and makes my skin look fresh and plump!

Nuxe reve de miel lip balm
For so long I suffered with dry, chapped and sore lips.
Until I took the plunge this summer and bought this!
It's been on my lips everyday since I got it!

Juicy couture viva la juicy perfume 
I'm a huge fan of very sweet smelling scents.
This is just one of them!
I adore this perfume, it's become one of my favourites!

So there we go, my 2012 favourites!
I'm excited to see what I discover throughout 2013!
