2012 Beauty Favorites

New Years is approaching quickly and 2012 is officially coming to an end. We get a clean slate, a fresh new start, and a whole slew of new mistakes (and resolutions) to make. 

This year was a good year for beauty, in my opinion. I discovered some great things that I now cannot live without.

I've blogged about most of them but there are a few things that slipped my mind while writing.

These are incredible. I've mentioned them a few times before but I cannot get enough of them. They are the perfect texture and formula...creamy and moisturizing but not heavy like a lipstick. The colors that Revlon features are really rich and perfect for any skin tone. I have two of them but I think in 2013, I will definitely be buying more.

I haven't spoken about this yet so here we go. I have really dry skin, my feet are the worst by far. This little gem is like a pedicure in your own home. It takes away all the dry skin on the bottoms of your feet, leaving you with smooth skin. Add some lotion afterwards and you are good to go! This is a serious winter lifesaver.

I will be doing a "Favorite companies" blog so Essie really should be included in that but I just fell in love with all Essie nail polishes this year! I have too many in my nail polish bag and my collection keeps growing. The formula is the best I've ever seen and it goes on so smoothly. My favorite has to be Eternal Optimist-- it's a perfect pale pink that is great for summer or winter weather.

I meant to blog about this but kept forgetting. I received a generous full size of an olive green color of this liner in one of my Birchboxes and I fell in love. I usually stuck with black eyeliner but I really just wanted to use this particular one so I kept using the green. With the points I racked up on Birchbox.com, I bought another liner in Black. This is a liquid liner that isn't too liquidly; you apply it as a marker, the tip resembles that of a Sharpie and it goes on smoothly. It looks fabulous too. This was definitely my #1 favorite of the year!

This stuff saved my hair in 2012. I have a lot of thick, curly hair which is prone to frizz, even in the cold winter months. After I finish straightening it, if my locks need a bit of shine or help with frizz, I apply this creme and it smooths it out. It's not heavy for a creme and doesn't make my hair oily. It's a lifesaver! 

What have been your beauty favorites of 2012? Let me know in the comments :)
