Best of 2012│Beauty

best 2012

I'M STILL ALIVE! I promised a Best of 2012 post and here it is! (finally). I narrowed it down until it fit in a Glossybox lid, well almost. I picked makeup products mostly and only a few hair and skin care favourites. If you would like to see a full-review on these products, simply click on the name of each product. I hope you all had a good year and remember, the best is yet to come! Happy 2013! :) 

best 2012 4

Why are these the best?

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette:  It is a compact, travel-size matte eyeshadow palette with 6 full-sized pigmented eyeshadows perfect to create both soft and bold looks.
Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette: It comes with 12 full-sized buttery soft eyeshadows with glitter, sheen and matte shades that compliment any eye colour.
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Perversion: Is the blackest black eyeliner ever!
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Original: It's a clear, long-lasting eyeshadow primer that make my eyeshadow stay put.
Mac Powerpoint Eye Pencil in Engraved: Is the second blackest black eyeliner ever!
Mac Fluidline in Blitz & Glitz: It applies heavenly and tends to last longer that pencil and liquid eyeliner. Why not Blacktrack, you ask? Because Blitz & Glitz is an intense black with gold pearl.
Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara: No other mascara has a better formula or brush. 
Nars blush in Luster:  This is the prettiest sheer golden apricot blush I've come across.
Mac Matte Blush in Melba: Is a brown peach perfect for all year-round!
Mac Cremeblend Blush in Something Special: A long-lasting creme formula in a light coral shade that suits most skin tones. The texture of creme blushes are my favourite because they stay all day and have great coverage.
Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Purity: It has great wear and quality, it doesn't chip in at least 5-6 days.
Smith's Rosebud Salve:  Is a multi-purpose balm. I've used it on my lips, blemishes and even on freshly-done tattoos. This product is a skin saver! Contains cottonseed oil in a petrolatum base.
Mac Tinted Lip Conditioner in Petting Pink:  Perfect for summer as it comes with SPF15 and to prevent dry lips during the colder months. But the tinted part is my favourite!
Benefit Sugarbomb Ultra Plush Lipgloss: Non-sticky. Need I say more?
Revlon Lipbutter in Pink Truffle: My lips but better kinda shade.
Revlon Lipbutter in Peach Parfait: This shade is like Nars Orgasm for the lips. 
Mac Cremesheen Lipstick in Creme Cup: My all-time favourite Mac lipstick. 
Dior Addict High Shine in 566: A sheer rose pink with a lovely sheen!
Real Tecniques Stippling Brush: It gives me flawless creme blush application!
Real Tecniques Contour Brush: Is the easiest way to apply bronzer and blush.
Real Tecniques Expert Face Brush: My foundation looks flawless when using this brush.
Real Tecniques Buffing Brush: I find this brush perfect to blend in mineral foundation.
Missha BB Cream in No.23: Is the best BB cream I've tried.
L'occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream: It contains 20% shea butter and heals dry skin.
Clinique All About Eyes Cream: It de-puffs and reduces black circles around the eyes.
Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau de Toilette: A delicate, feminine fragrance. Not to mention the packaging.
L'occitane Concentrated Mask: This hair mask improved the condition of my scalp and made it 5x better. Since I started using this, I haven't had any itching problems.
Lush Angels on Bare Skin Face Cleanser: A fairly new addition to my routine, but it's already a favourite. It gently exfoliates and removes the dirt off my face. The milky almond texture makes my skin feel fresh and moisturized.
