2012 Faves

Super Facialist By Una Brennan ' Facial Scub'-  I never knew how hard it was going to be picking items for my 2012 fave post but it was so hard, when it came down to facial scrubs though this one won hands down,it smells amazing got a lovely rose scent and just leaves my skin feeling super clean super soft.

Elizabeth Arden Visable Difference Cleanser - I purchased this back in September I think and it is fantastic I found my skin to be in such good condition after using this and my break outs were non existent once I started using this.

MAC Cleanse Off Oil-  Now this is a product I adore, I find with my make up removers I used to use they never seemed to bbudge my mascara and I was always left with panda eyes which then had to just was off. But this is bloody fantastic a couple of pumps on to cotton pad wipe all over your face and it melts all your make up off then rinse your face and every inch of make up is gone.

Elizabeth Arden Visable Difference Face Primer & Daniel Sandler Retexturizing Face Primer - Now at the start of 2012 if you had told me that Benefit Porefessional would not be in my yearly fave post I would of called you mad, but come late summer this year I came across these two gems and I could not pick which one to put in so I put both in and to be honest I can't tell the difference in them, they are both amazing really smooth my skin out before applying foundation and really make my make up last longer than if I didn't use them.

DKNY Delicous Night & DKNY Be Delicious -  I am such a perfume junkie so I found this nearly as hard as my fave nail polishes so I decided I would pick a day time one and a night time one for day time it is Be Delicious which is just a gorgeous fresh scent which I wear on a daily basis and just adore it, then my most worn evening perfume would be the Delicious Night I'm already on my 2nd bottle of this in a year and every time I wear it I always have people  asking me what perfume am I wearing, it has such a unique musky scent quite deep as well.

Now If I had my own way there would be about 20 nail polishes on this section but I mean that just silly, Although I am one of the biggest Nail Polish addicts going on my last count I had just over 200 which is stupidly crazy and then for my stocking fillers this year Nath got me 6 Nail polishes lol. So I thought I would Narrow it down to just 4.

Nails inc Sprinkles Special Effects-  Thought I better chuck a special effects in here, I just loved this and how pretty and colourful it looked on the nails and was SO easy to remove.

Essie Sugar Daddy- Along with Essie Fiji this is one of the classics and if I find myself undecided on which colour to paint my nails I find myself reaching for this one.

Essie Butler Please -  I only purchased this in December but have worn it so much recently just a beautiful vibrant blue which looks amazing on the nails.

Revlon Colorstay RainForest- Oh My God this colour is incredible I love these Revlon polishes as much as Essie and they are the same price and I'd say on par with them quality wise. This shade is amazing a dark green which the most beautiful specks of glitter which looks amazing on the nails.

Real Techniques Brushes - These brushes are bloody amazing love them so much this year I have sworn by the blush brush and buffing brush, I also love the stippling brush.

MAC Soft & Gentle Skin finish -  This has to be on of my most used products in 2012 it is so beautiful on the skin and gives such a lovely finish, in the summer I think I went about two months using this every single day.

Stila Smudge Pot 'Kitten' -  Such a stunning base to apply shadow on to  I also find that my shadow stays on longer when I use this was the base as well, lasts for ages as well used it so much and still lots left

YSL Shocking Mascara - There have been 2 mascara's I've really liked this year this one and the Daniel Sandler Jumbo Jet one but at a push I picked this one over the DS one just because it gives my lashes more volume and length, the only downside is the price tag.

Benefit Velvet Eyeshadow in ' Rich Beach' - This has been a stable of mine now for about a year and a half it is the most beautiful taupe/brown shade and applies like a dream doesn't crease and has fantastic staying power.

MAC Highlight 'Crew'-  Now this is supposed to be a highlighter but just looks stupid with my skin tone so I've been using it as my everyday blush and I'm just in love with it gives the most perfect subtle look for a day to day look. I take it everywhere with me hence why it's all battered looking

Maybelline Colorsensational Hollywood Red- I has been looking for a deep red lipstick for ages and then I came across this one day on a whim whilst in Boots and just love it, was my most used lipstick during the winter months and over Christmas.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable 'Honey' - This has been my day to day lip wear for the last few months as it such a beautiful neutral shade a pretty dusky pink shade which I love, I will be buying more of these that's for sure.

YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch - I'm shade 001 in this and it has been a complete lifesaver for the early morning starts,gives good coverage and brightens up under my eyes.

So they are my most used/loved products of 2012 I really found this hard to keep my product picks limited and not pick 5/6 for each one. Have you done a post or video for your 2012 faves? If so please leave your links
