The year 2012 was an amazing year to discover products that were so great that I cannot choose! It was the year that I got myself back into drugstore products and avoided them ever since I got into MAC back in 2008 and been buying nothing but MAC for 4 1/2 years. It was also the year that MAC has some amazing collections that I could not pass up! Here are the products that I've been loving throught the year of 2012!
L'Oreal Colour Rich Caresse Lipsticks: These were the most amazing products that I've ever tried! I love that they are sheer and buildable to make them opaque! I love Blushing Sequin the most since it's a gorgeous color! I also like Pink Cashmere and Pink Vinyl as well!
Bottom: Star Wonder, Sunbasque, Springsheen
When MAC first released them with In Extra Dimension Collection, I had to get all three of them for sure! I have been using Whisper of Gilt alot during the Summer and Superb alot during the Winter. I do use Glorify if I don't feel like wearing blush but just to wear as a glow on my cheekbones. Even both Whisper of Glit and Superb were repromoted this year and would have backed these up for sure but I have other highlighters that needs love as well. Star Wonder was another product that I love most! It is gorgeous with NARS Mata Hari Blush and love the combo together! I use this as a blush lightly on the cheeks and it's amazing! Both Sunbasque and Springsheen are my summer blushes and love them to pieces! Sunbasque was the blush that I've been wanting to have for awhile and been using it with NYX Magnetic Illuminating Bronzer while I use Springsheen as a cheek highlight and use NARS Torrid Blush with it. Love that combo together for the Summer!
Bottom: Sugarpill Heart Breaker Palette
These were the most amazing products of all! I have loved Hysteric and Magnetric a lot this year since those two make a gorgeous combo with Poison Plum and Dollipop! I even did a look on that yesterday for NYD and loved how they turned out! For MAC Call Me Bubbles Quad, the colors are so pretty!! I loved Brash e/s in that palette! That color is so gorgeous that I have yet to try it with Expensive Pink and Mythology eyeshadows! This was the palette that is hard to find since it sold out online so fast! The Sugarpill Heart Breaker Palette is the best purchase ever! I loved all the colors in that palette! Mochi and Acid Berry will be forever my favorite colors ever to use and it's amazing to put both Tipsy and Darling Chromalust Loose Eyeshadows over them!
These are the lipstick shades that I've loved for 2012! I have been into bright pinks during that year that it wouldn't stop! I have loved Watch Me Simmer and Impassioned! Those are the most gorgeous shades ever! For Viva Glam Nicki, loved it as well with Embrace Me lip liner that I did for the Viva Glam campaign inspired look! For Pink Pearl Pop, gorgeous color and glad that it's permanent! Quick Sizzle, Party Parrot, Flamingo and Pink Pigeon are the four lipsticks that are hard to find now! Both Pink Pigeon and Party Parrot repromoted with Strength collection and leaving Pink Pigeon being sold out within 5 seconds! Force of Love was another lipstick that sold out quickly online because of the unique color and shade description. Zen Rose is my first Sheen Supreme lipstick to ever try and it's the only LE shade. Sunny Seoul and Coral Bliss are both gorgeous shades! Both shades are going to be used a lot during the Spring season soon!
It feels good to purchase some MAC lipglasses and the ones that caught my eye were the shades from Fashion Sets collection! I was happy that MAC did the lipstick/lipglass/nail polish versions of the best selling shades! Getting Impassioned and Girl About Town lipglasses makes it complete since I own both the lipstick versions of them! For the Smashbox Reflections High Shine Lipglosses, they are so amazing and I've been using them like crazy! MAC's Cremesheen Glasses never fail me! Even the ones from Cremesheen + Pearl and Heavenly Creature are amazing! Trying out the L'Oreal Colour Riche Le Gloss is what I've been curious about and glad to finally try them! I love that they are moisutrizing! Peach Fuzz is my favorite of all!
Trying out the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer for the first time is now my HG foundation primer! I use it everyday and I love it so much! For the Maybelline to introduce the BB Cream, I love it a lot! I even finished it up awhile ago and now using the L'Oreal Magic Beautifying BB Cream now since that one is another amazing product! I do adore the Mega Plush mascara because it leaves your lashes feeling soft and I'm on my second tube of it and will have to get another one soon. As for brows, I am so happy that I finally got to learn how to define my brows and fill them in! Using the NYX Eye/Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown and MAC Spiked Brow products have been my HG products of all time! I even learned how to tweeze the areas of what needs to be tweezed to make my brows look even (or try to make them even). For the Baby Lips, it's a necessity to have in your makeup bag to have in case your lips gets dry and cracked during the Winter season. Also, lip exfoliation is a must as well and I use the sample of the MAC Volcanic Ash Exfoliator to use it as a lip exfoliator.
Last but not least, the Betsey Johnson Too Too Pretty fragrance! I really love this frangrance a lot and been using it a lot that I will purchase another one of it soon! This is my first perfume purchase and have been buying a lot of body mists from Victoria's Secret and Bath & Body Works that I have never bought perfume and now I find myself wanting more! I do recommend this fragrance for those that love floral scents like I do!
Hope that you all enjoyed this post! What are your favorites for 2012?
