Before I start, I have to say that it was very hard to narrow my list of favourite makeup products of 2012 but I’ve tried my best.
Let’s take a look at what I’ve chosen…
Benefit Erase Paste
I don’t really use concealer on a daily basis, unless I have a new, really bad spot, I just use Touche Eclat under my eyes and that’s all. But if I had to choose my favourite “concealer” type of product – that would be this one. It is a creamy peach corrector which works great for the dark under eyes circles. I had a review of it but because of some tech problems, it was deleted, need to re-write it soon.
Omorovicza Complexion Perfector BB SPF 20
One of my favourite face products you can read the details why here. If you can afford it, I would definitely recommend.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Tinted Moisturiser Sketches on Water
This gives a very natural finish and light coverage and you can’t see it on the face, at all! Miracle for dry skin in cold weather, as it doesn’t enhance any dry patches. See all the shade available here.
Daniel Sandler Invisible Radiance Foundation and Concealer
It is a very nice foundation that gives a dewy finish so works great for my dry skin. The shade Porcelain is a great fit for fair skin and works for me in AW, in SS, I use the second lightest shade – Beige. Plus it comes with concealer which is a great deal for the price. Want to know more?
BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl
This product probably doesn’t even need an introduction. It’s the best highlighter out there, it gives a very natural and beautiful effect.
Wow, I was able to choose only three blushers, although I was very tempted to add more of them.
BECCA Cream Blush in Amaryllis
My favourite blush for AW months, perfect cool toned and natural looking, gives a niceRead More
My favourite eye shadow colour is chocolate brown, especially with cooper undertone. So here are my top three. Cream eye shadow from Benefit in Busy Signal which is an amazing long-lasting product, perfect for a smoky eyes.
There is also Rouge Bunny Rouge Bejewelled Skylark, which has to be my most used eye shadow. I love the buttery smooth texture and pigmented colour.
I have also found a sample of MAC’s Cooperbeam pigment which I adore. I have got it as a bonus from a blog sale and completely forgot about it. But it is so beautiful that I must have a full size. I can’t see it onRead More
I just love reading the posts and watching videos about favourite products of the year! So, as promised, here is a list of mine.
This year I’ve decided to choose only the most favourite products! I will not post products in ‘each nomination’, just those that really stood out to me.
So here is part one – eye products.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Long Lasting Eye Shadow in Bejewelled Skylark
Definitely my favourite eye shadows of 2011! Soft, pigmented, long-lasting, easy-to-work-with; the colour is gorgeous, I love such shades for an every day look. I found myself reaching for this product over, and over again. You can read full review with swatches here.
RBR are releasing some new shades of their eye shadows and I can’t wait to see them!
Illamasqua Pure Pigment in Berber
This pigment is one of my favourite Illamasqua products ever! I was extremely excited when it launched, the colour is really beautiful, unique, not boring but totally wearable. Not only the colour is amazing, the quality is supreme, too. Read more here.
Hourglass Calligraphy Liquid Eye Liner
This has to be my favourite eye liner of the year. Easy to use (even if you are a beginner), true black colour and great staying power! What else to ask for?

Dior DiorShow Extase Mascara

I’ve been really excited about theBalm’s Nude Tude palette, so I was happy to get it to show you all.
This is how the package looks like, it’s very theBalm, retro photo and a cardboard packaging.
There is also a lovely and useful mirror inside. As you may remember, there are two variants of the design inside: naughty and nice. Luckily, I’ve got the naughty one which I absolutely love!Read More
You already read the post about my favourite face products of 2010 and now it’s time for eye products! And, yes, stay tuned for the lip products part!
So let’s start!
My favourite mascara is Lancome Hypnose. I’ve tried so many mascaras (and have so many brand new waiting for me to try them) and although there are so many amazing products for me nothing beats up the Lancome Hypnose so far! Read review here.
Ellis Faas Lights
Not only they look absolutely gorgeous , but they also stay on for hours without creasing, fading or smudging. I am really impressed. Read review here.
Benefit Creaseless Cream Eye Shadows
I just love these eye shadows and I’ve already written about them twice, they are just so good. Brilliant cream eye shadows. I know that several people bought them after reading my post (which makes me happy that people trust my reviews) and loved them, too. Read review here and here.
Yves Saint Laurent Ombres 5 Lumieres
These have been my favourite high-end eye shadows this year, the best quality ever: silky texture, nice pigmentation, beautiful shades. Read review here.
