My Favourite Cosmetics from 2012 ♥

I wanted to do a little end of 2012 post revealing what were my favourite products of the year! I’ve tried out loads of beauty products this year but I wanted to show you the ones I really recommend the most. Firstly I will show you my top cosmetics, and then other general health and beauty products.


My Favourite Cosmetics from 2012 ♥
Top marks goes to Maybelline for their Fit Me foundation! I love this and it has now become the only foundation I use! I reviewed this in November and I am still so happy with it, and it’s a great price too.

A firm favourite, the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer was something I reviewed all the way back in January and have been using ever since! I find it thick enough to cover up but runny enough not to be cakey. And not bad for only £4!
My Favourite Cosmetics from 2012 ♥
In October I reviewed this fabulous creme blush from Topshop. This is still my go-to blusher for when I want a hot pink glow! It’s a really girly colour and it lasts really well.

My favourite make up brush has to be the Sigma F80 flat top kabuki brush. I haven’t actually ever reviewed this, dispite using it all year! But it’s really lovely to use and so soft!
My Favourite Cosmetics from 2012 ♥
Of all the cheap pressed powders I’ve tried, this extremely cheap one by 2True at Superdrug is definitely my favourite. It’s not flaky or dry, it is just perfect for adding a bit of matte powder, and it costs less than £2. I’ve actually been using this for 3+ years now and never done a review on it, but it is perfect for me!
Lip Colour

It was a tough choice to pick between this Revlon Lip Butter and my MAC Cockney lipstick, but I use this one more often so it wins! It’s great for adding a pop of colour and is so moisturising, it’s amazing! I reviewed this only at the beginning of December but I will soon need a new one!
My Favourite Cosmetics from 2012 ♥
I’m not a huge eyeshadow user, but when I do use it, I love nude colours. As I don’t use it often, rather than splashing out on a big brand palette I thought I’d try this one buy MUA. I’ve been using it since October and I use most of the shades, and I find they are quite long lasting and great value for money at only £4 for the palette. I did a full review of it in November and I really recommend it.

This is another more recent try, reviewed in November,  but it’s the best beauty product I’ve discovered in a long time! This Giordani Gold Make Up Base from Oriflame is so perfect for using underneath foundation and creates the perfect long lasting, flawless base. I’ve tried a few other primers and none of them work quite like this one.
My Favourite Cosmetics from 2012 ♥
Something else I haven’t reviewed just because it’s such an everyday product for me. The Maybelline One by One Volum Express mascara is what I like to use daily as I find it gives me the best eyelash results. I have rubbish lashes but I find that the bristles on this brush make the most of the few lashes that I have. 
Lip Balm
My Favourite Cosmetics from 2012 ♥
This is something quite new to me, but I love it so I have to show you it! I love lip balms, one of my favourites is the Cherry Cola one they used to sell in Primark! But I haven’t seen it around recently, so my new favourite is this Blackcurrant one from Balmi! It’s a cute little ball shaped pot and it smells just delicious and is so easy to use and moisturising!
Eyebrow Kit
My Favourite Cosmetics from 2012 ♥
This MUA eyebrow kit I reviewed in October and I’m still loving it! It’s such a bargain compared to other brow kits, and the colours are all useable!

I hope you enjoyed this post! What are your top 2012 products? Have you tried any of these?

    I love the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation too! It's the best foundation I've tried so far. I'm using the sample at the moment but haven't bought any because of the bottle, I prefer squeezy ones!

    Wishing you a Happy 2013!
