2012 Beauty Favorites

Happy New Years Eve! I thought I'd end the year with something that has been a huge part of my year, make up! It's sad but it's true! So here are my favorites of 2012 and I already have a beauty resolution in mind ... next year, narrow each category to just one! Looking at this and re watching my video I see that I maybe could have made my list shorter! I just had such a hard time picking only one because some of these were favorites in the beginning and then some became new favorites towards the end! This could also mean that I should probably buy less beauty products in 2013 and that's def. a resolution of mine! To spend less on beauty! I'll leave a list below of the favorites and you can watch the video as well, I get a little more animated and in depth with the products I'm showing! Some you'll be able to click on and it'll send you to the review/swatches!

I ended up not including a few of my favorites just because YouTube wasn't letting me upload a video that was longer than 15 minutes. If there's anything you see up in the photo or on the list that I didn't mention and would like me to talk about/review let me know and I'll get on it lickety split!

See you guys next year! :)


  1. great list of favorites! i think i agree with every single thing you said lol and i also like you're "sand and sea" palette :)

    1. They most def. must be! Which ones were on your list too?! :)

  3. Seriously DROOLING over almost every product shown here, haha! These are such great picks - I must go shopping! :)

    1. That's awesome to hear! Good to see they are worthy products to appear on everyone's lists! :)

  5. I just found your blog :) I love the favourites you picked. I just got Benefit's Hervana and I really like it so far, and I am dying to try out the tarte blushes!

    1. The Tarte blushes are amazing and once you buy one you'll want them all! :)

  6. Finally watched this! I've been wanting to for ages but haven't been able to get any peace and quiet to watch any YouTube videos. My sister half watched/listened to it as well and said you're so funny and you remind her of me, haha. I actually laughed so much at the end when you hit the camera with the nail polish. I really badly want that BB cream. Your skin sounds exactly the same as mine (although I bet I'm still paler than you), so I want to try this one whenever my Maybelline Dream Fresh runs out which is very soon!x

    1. That's so cool! I feel like we have quite similar personalities only you probably have an amazing accent whilst I sound like "a silly American" Boo! You def. should! I seriously didn't expect for it to be my "go to" product especially after the summer time but it's fantastic! Better than any foundation!

    2. I think we're quite similar too :) No way! I love your accent, I think I sound weird. I don't think you can even imagine my accent haha! I am 100% buying it. I get paid next Friday and it's on my list :D
