Best of 2012

Raiding through my ever growing makeup drawer whilst trying to decipher what my my most used and loved beauty products have been over the past year, made me realise just how much my tastes have changed. Last January I would have picked MAC Studio Sculpt as my holy grail foundation in a heart beat, whereas today I would firmly chose Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua.
Ive gone from opting for a neutral lip, needless to say creme cup has been replaced with various shades of bright pink (hello show orchid). As for skincare, I am no longer that girl who would lazily use wilkos finest face wipes and the cheapest cleanser on offer. These days I have a range of products that suit my skin, and in return ive noticed a dramatic difference in my complexion. 
So after much consideration, here it is my Best of 2012

    1. aww thanks :).. totally agree with it being a cult product. Such a budget friendly concealer, and yet a million times better than others on the market!! xx

  3. Great favorites! Benefit They're Real and the Fresh Lip Balm are so lovely! I've always wanted to try Chanel Peridot as well. Something about that color just locks you in doesn't it? It's kind of hard to look away!
