The best make up mist I’ve used so far. It helps to prolong my make up as well as doing a brilliant job at refreshing my skin.
Best face primer goes to Technic Prime It Illuminating Face Primer
This has helped my skin to look more awake by adding a glowing effect which is much needed on those days where it looks well, a little dull. It also creates a nice base for my foundation.

Probably the cheapest, best powder I’ve ever used. It’s brilliant for setting my foundation and prevents me from looking like an oily discoball.
Best foundation and concealer goes to Veil Cover Cream *
I honestly don’t know what I’d do without this cream. It’s like a miracle in a pot. It covers literally anything. It’s even waterproof! It gives me so much more confidence and makes me feel a lot better about myself when my skin is suffering.

I got this in an Impulse set a while back and it’s been a joy to use ever since. It’s packed full of glittery goodness and looks beautiful on.
Best lipstick goes to NYC Lipstick in 405 Blue Rose
Just like the name, it has a blue undertone which makes teeth looks super duper white. The colour is out of this world and not only a favourite of 2012, but an all time favourite lipstick.

This is the nicest smelling and tasting lipstick I’ve ever tried. Not only that, but it does a good job at moisturising my lips too. It’s become a firm pocket favourite throughout these past few cold months.

My Favourite Products 2012 | VIVO Unprotected Palette and MUA Trio Eyeshadow in Pink Sorbet
Best palette goes to the VIVO Unprotected palette
Now I could have chosen the highly popular MUA Undressed palette as they’re both the same product, but I thought I’d go for this one, simply because I prefer the packaging more. It’s packed full of wonderfully pigmented, gorgeous nude shades which are perfect for both day and night.
Best mini palette goes to the MUA Trio Eyeshadow in Pink Sorbet
A set of gorgeous pink shades which compliment my green eyes nicely. They work great as they are, but even better when used wet.

Best pressed eyeshadow goes to MUA Eyeshadow in Shade 1
The best shadow for highlighting those inner corners in my opinion. It makes eyes appear bigger and brighter. Not only that but it’s highly pigmented and blends very well.
Best loose eyeshadow goes to ELF Mineral Eyeshadow in Elegant
A lovely neutral shade, perfect for daytime wear and great to team up with a bold lip.
Best cream eyeshadow goes to Maybelline Color Tattoo in 35 On and On Bronze
This is a spiffing product. It works really well as a base or alone as a shadow. It has the most amazing staying power really is like a tattoo.

A little palette that contains a fantastic brown shade that suits my dark brown hair perfectly. It lasts all day and doesn’t budge.

This is a product that keeps my brows under control and does so brilliantly. For £1, you really can’t go wrong.
My Favourite Products 2012 | Body Moisturising Lotion For All Skin Types by Essyta Cosmetics and Orhis Nourishing Face Cream
Best body moisturiser goes to Body Moisturising Lotion For All Skin Types by Essyta Cosmetics *
A great moisturiser which personally is much needed as the skin on my legs tends to be a little on the dry side. It hydrates well and absorbs into the skin quickly.

This gives my skin the hydration it needs without making it horrible and oily.
