Favourite Products of 2012.....

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a brilliant New Years Eve last night and you didn't get toooooo drunk. ;)

Today's post is going to be a round up of my favourite beauty products from 2012. I'm going to pick one product per category. These are all products I've been using religiously throughout the year of 2012!

Cheek Product:
Benefit's Posie Tint! I love wearing this on the apples of my cheeks - it looks really pretty yet subtle at the same time. It's also really easy to use which is always a great thing!

Eye Product:
L'Oreal's Colour Infallible Eyeshadow in Hourglass Beige! This is such a beautiful eyeshadow - it's a shimmery gold/champagne colour and it looks lovely all over the lid. I like wearing this on its own with mascara and eyeliner, for a quick everyday look.

Lip Product:
MUA Love Heart Lip Balm in Sweet Kiss! It's a really moisturising lip balm that looks like a gloss when it's on the lips. It's only £2 so definitely a bargain!

Skincare Product:
Clinique Moisture Surge! It's a lovely face cream, it's not greasy at all and sinks into the skin really quickly.

Nail Polish:
Nails Inc Palace Gardens Terrace or ELF Mod Mauve! They're both dark taupe-y burgundy colours and perfect for autumn. I personally like wearing them all year round!

Body Product:
Soap and Glory's Hand Food! I love this hand cream! It sinks into the skin really quickly and is really moisturising.

Body Spray:
Victoria's Secret Lost In Fantasy! I bought this while I was in Florida and it smells amazing!! The scent lasts for quite a long time and I received the matching body lotion for Christmas.

Shower Product:
Cath Kidston Shower Gel in Bluebell! This shower gel smells really nice and the packaging is really pretty.

Have you tried these products yourself?
Have you written this sort of post on your blog? I'd love to read them!


  1. I used to love ELF's nail polish in mod mauve but i really hated the formula at times however i do adore the matte top coat from them :)

  11. Some lovely favourites! (A lot of them aren't available in Aus but totally going on my wishlist for when I travel!)
    I wrote up mine too! http://www.sweetaholic-beauty.com/2013/01/2012-favourites.html :)

  12. Ohh, you've picked such lovely products as your favourites! I'm seriously tempted to get Clinique's Moisture Surge, but the price is a little off-putting.
    I'm really wanting to get my hands on MUA's Sweet Kiss lipbalm, too xx

    1. Aww thank you!

      I recommend it! The one I have is only a small sample size but my one has last forever!!

      I really recommend that as well!

    1. Yeah! Some things are definitely better than others!!x

  14. I love the soap and glory hand food!Amazing :) xo

  15. I'm a huge fan of posie tint and high beam :)

    The Style Rawr!

  16. Huge fan of Posie Tint. As well as the cheeks, it's also a great lipstain for your lips. I tend to apply this underneath my main lipstick, as it brings out a softer colour!

    Perhaps you could give it a try? :)

    1. Me to!

      Oooooh, thanks for the advice - will definitely give it a go!!
