My favorites of 2012: Makeup edition

Starting today and following for a few blog posts I will be doing my favorites of 2012, and a maybe a birthday/christmas post on what I got. I might not just because well I turned 21 this year, I mostly got alcohol and jewelry. I’m not complaining though!

As you can see from below it’s actually a small amount of favorites. It’s mostly what I use everyday. Some guys are favorites from last year – I’m looking at you NAKED.  Others are newly discovered – Dream Matte Mousse.

Hard Candy’s Sheer Envy face primer I’ve been using this primer for over two years now. It’s still my favorite. It has great staying power! Doesn’t break me out. It’s amazing. I only have one complaint does nothing about my giant pores. I know it doesn’t advertise it would, but I still wish it helped. I’m on a hunt for a good primer. Any suggestions ladies?

MeMeMe’s Dew Pots in Willow Whisper I really love this cream eyeshadow. I use it as a base for darker brown shadows I use. I especially like to use it under toasted of my naked palette. It gives my look an extremely long wear time. It looks great on it own, but I notice if I don’t set it with some type of powder it creases.

NAKED by Urban Decay I’ve had this thing forever. I am still in love with this since I first got it. It’s the perfect palette for me since I’m not a huge fan of color shadows. It was so  worth the splurge!

Urban Decay’s Primer Potion in Sin I love this brand of primer. I love all the versions but I love this the best because sometimes I use this to only prime my eyes for eyeliner and not put eyeshadow on. It gives it a nice shimmery look. LOVE it!

NYX’s Blush in Pinched It’s such a lovely redish-pink blush with gold shimmer. It’s the only blush I’ve used all fall and so far all of winter as well. There’s so much product in these compacts that I barely even made a dent in it.

MAC’s Lipstick in Snob I love this pale baby pink lipstick. It looks a little lilac on me but I love it. Wear times great, doesn’t dry out my lips or stain them.

ELF’s Liquid liner in Black I love this eyeliner. Lasts all day doesn’t smudge. I stays in place when I go out at night. It’s only a dollar! Such a steal!

Maybelline’s Dream Matte mousse I’ve just recently found this foundation and I’m in love! It gives me great medium-full coverage. I never get cakey, it gives me such a lovely airbrush look!

Maybelline’s Dream Matte Powder  I love this because it keeps my skin matte all day without looking dry. Keeps the shine at bay.

Hard Candy’s Baked Bronzer in Tiki They advertise this as a bronzer, which I find if you use it as a bronzer you look like such a shimmery mess. I wouldn’t suggest it. BUT I love this as a highlighter! It’s so nice, and it’ll last forever that way!

These are my favorite makeup items! I can’t wait to try and find new favorites next year! What are your favorite makeup items?
