I thought I'd do the best of 2012 tag, even though I'm very late in doing this! I definitely wanted to get it up though, just to show what products were my favourites throughout the year. Hope you enjoy and let me know if you've done this post as I love reading them!

1. Face product
I loved my Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 hour foundation, I used lots of foundations in 2012 but for a high street brand, this really stood out for me. I have a clarins foundation that I love at the moment but when that's gone I want to try the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation as I've heard great things and was so pleasantly surprised by the lasting finish one!

2. Cheek product
This definitely has to be my Stila Convertable Colour in Petunia, this is my go to for every day as it's just so wearable. I can wear it lightly or slight more bright for a night out, which I love. It dries quite matte too, which makes it good for every day.

3. Eye product
My MAC painterly paint pot. This will sound so boring, but I've changed my eyeshadows, eyeliners and mascaras all through the year but this is the one product I've used all year round. It makes a great base for eyeshadow and ensures they stay put all day, but it also looks lovely on it's own.

4. Lip Product
This was really, really hard. I sort of want to say MAC Creme D'Nude, but I only got it at Christmas from Darren, so I can't really say it was my favourite for the year, however it's definitely a current staple! I'm going to narrow this down to two products, these being my Korres lip butter and Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker. (both names are linked to my individual reviews if you're interested) 

5. Skincare Product
I was quite fickle with skincare in 2012 and have only recently discovered my favourite skincare products of the moment, but I loved my Garnier make up remover as it's so cheap and removes make up perfectly!

6. Nail Polish
This is another toughie, purely because I switch up my nail polish a lot when I wear it, which isn't often these days as it gets in the way when I'm doing manicures. So for this I'm going to cheat and say Shellac, I trained in Shellac as an addition to my beauty therapy course and I love it. It lasts so long and looks beautifully shiny for ages! 

7. Hair product
This has to be by Touch of Silver Shampoo. As a blonde, I could NOT live without this now. It is the best toning shampoo I've ever tried.

8. Body product/Perfume
Another one I'm going to cheat on and say Soap and Glory in general. I've loved their bath and body products all year round and am trying lots more for 2013! My perfume of 2012 was Tresor in Love by Lancome. It's a light fruity floral, very girly and lovely. However I'm currently on the hunt for a new scent for 2013!
