The Best of 2012

The Best of 2012

So, 2012 is coming to a close…soonish. What a year it’s been!  So in the spirit of the traditional ‘Best of’ I took a look back at the categories I have done in the past and decided to mix things up a bit. In 2011 I gave a product the title of ‘best of’ for the following:

– Haircare Product
– Hair Styling Product
– Lip Product
– Eye Product
– Mascara
– Foundation
– Beauty Basic
– Face Moisturiser
– Gadget
– Wild Card
– Nail Colour
But this year I have mixed it up to simple include my top 10 favourite products, plus my ‘wild card’ favourite for the year! I did pick categories and have run through each of them below, along with the product I chose:
1. Mascara: Lancome Hypnose Star
2. Foundation: Estee Lauder Double Wear
3. Gadget: Remington Pearl Wand
4. Beauty Basic: Biore Combination Face Cleanser
5. Nail Product: OPI Man With A Golden Gun Top Coat
6. Fragrance: Molecule 01
7. Lip Product: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain
8. Face Moisturiser:  Origins Make a Difference + 
9. Eye Product: Clarins Smoothing Eye Mask
10. Specialist Skincare: Hydraluron
Wild Card!  Lush Roots
Now of course, when I got started with this I realised I am missing so many categories…what about brow? self tanning? body product? eye shadow? eye make-up remover? Foot products? Hair removal?! So many still could be covered… But I wanted to make it a Top 10, or else we would all be here until I should be doing my best-of 2013…
Each of my picks of the year are based on me loving them and using them frequently over the year. Some of them aren’t brand new, but they are ones I discovered in 2012 or just fell for allover again.

What do you think of my picks?! Agree/disagree? What have been your loves of 2012?!

    Great “Best Of” selection! I love these sorts of posts 🙂

    I would love to try the Molecule 01 Fragrance. I keep hearing about it but unfortunately haven’t been able to find it anywhere where I live. Hopefully it will catch on soon and stores will start carrying it
