I've seen a few of these posts the past couple of days and I've really enjoyed reading them so I thought I'd try my hand at doing one. I can tell you now, picking 12 favourites from an entire year is not an easy task but I did it and I'm pretty happy with my choices. First up the Urban Decay NAKED Palette that is so crazily blogged up you have to be living under a rock to not know about it. Since getting this I have used it practically everyday and I can see why everybody loves it, gorgeous palette made for everyday! My most worn lipstick has to be MAC Sunny Seoul. It is such a beautiful pink colour, perfect for day and night but I definitely use it more in the day. My favourite perfume at the moment, and has been pretty much since June is Viva La Juicy from Juicy Couture. Such a pretty, feminine scent that can be used all year round. A recent find, but a staple of my cheeks is Sleek Rose Gold Blush which is also loved by many a blogger for being a NARS Orgasm dupe but seeing as I can't afford NARS, I'll love my Sleek one for now! Something I can't be without, especially the past couple of months, Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub. A saviour for the cold attacked lips of winter! My first ever brow palette, and a beautiful one at that, Youngblood Brow Artiste Palette in Brunette is the perfect shade for myself, and got me into actually sorting out the caterpillars on my face. We all know and love Soap & Glory and their Hand Food needs no introduction. Use it, constantly, love it, SO MUCH! Along with a gorgeous skin care essential, Purity Facial Exfoliator. Not too harsh, not too soft, just right! Another product I couldn't live without, Sure Maximum Protection Deodorant. Absolutely amazing, go on, I dare you to take a sniff ;) A cheap and cheerful product now, Rimmel Stay Matte Powder is a brilliant powder that does it's job to perfect. There really isn't a fault with it all! Boujois Healthy Mix Foundation is the best high street foundation I have used all year. Sits beautifully on the skin without being too much of a coverage. A faultless foundation in my eyes, at a very decent price. The YSL Shocking Mascara has graced my eyelashes every day since obtaining this sample, and it won't run out. Not that it's a bad thing, it's a brilliant mascara and justifiable in price for what it brings to your finished make-up. My eyes immediately look open and awake, phenomenal! 

So, these lovely products are my 12 of 2012, and I wonder if any of these will grace my 13 of 2013 in a years time.
