Hi lovers! I know, I know. I've promised this post for forever. But alas, wait no more! (Excuse the weird brown tinge to the pictures. I was playing with my settings.) Here it is:

Favorite Face Wipes: Say Yes to Grapefruit Facial Towelettes
A bit random of a favorite to start off with but since I don't really use anything on my face (cleanser, face wash, etc.) this is all I use! I've noticed that whenever I use this, it takes off ALL of my make up (unlike a lot of other make-up remover wipes I've tried in the past) and smells amazing. I am careful around my eyes with this because it burns like crazy if it gets in there. Ouchies! 

Favorite Lotions: William-Sonoma Hand Lotion & B&BW Vanilla Bean Noel Lotion
I don't even know where the Williams-Sonoma lotion came from (Seriously. I didn't buy it. It just randomly appeared.) and I'm convinced it's from the Hand Gods because this lotion has seriously saved my hands. The lemon scent is just right (not too Pinesol-y) and not strong. This lotion doesn't leave your hands greasy at all. I think B&BW Vanilla Bean Noel lotion goes without any explanation. Amazing scent and awesome name ;)

Favorite Make-Up:
  • Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette - Quite possibly my most favorite thing nonetheless make-up I've ever had. I just am so in love with every color in this palette.
  • Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette - Another amazing palette from UD! This one is all matte shades minus a really gorgeous "highlighter" shadow. Love it and it's a steal for $27!
  • Laura Geller Baked Body Frosting in Tahitian Glow - From my November Favorites that's continued into this year. This bronzer does have shimmer but it's super subtle on the face. 
  • Maybelline Color Whisper in Berry Ready - These may have just come out in late December but it's already found a spot on my favorites list! Berry Ready is the most amazing fuschia berry color that leaves a nice little stain once it wears away.
  • L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes - FAVORITE. MASCARA. I'VE. EVER. TRIED. PERIOD.
  • Chella Defining Eyebrow Gel - This popped up in one of my Ipsy bags and I'm so thankful I did! This gel keeps my eyebrows in check and in place. No unruly brows here!
  • Mirabella Primer - This year was a lot of firsts for me - primer included! I never really used primer underneath foundation or eyeshadow but always wondered why my make-up never stayed put. This primer goes on silky smooth and keeps my foundation and eyeshadow lasting all day long.
Favorite Beauty Accessories:
  • Real Techniques Contouring Brush - Instead of using this for contouring, I use this as a bronzing and all-over-face brush. It's insanely soft and holds just the right amount of product
  • B&BW I Love You Bouquet Anti-Bac - It's not a favorites post until I've posted a B&BW anti-bac, right? I swear I'm not a germaphobe! 

Favorite Accessories:
  • Alex & Ani Bracelet with cupcake charm - My friend bought me this for Christmas. How adorable is it? My nickname is "Cupcake" so it fits :)
  • Grey Faux Leather Bracelet with Crystal Bar - My parents bought me this for my birthday and it's been one of my favorite bracelets ever.
  • Betsey Johnson Lock & Key Bracelet - Need I say more? I think the picture explains it all.
  • Multi-Color Skull Bracelet - Yeah. I love skulls.

  • Bath & Body Works Vanilla Bean Noel - A perfume named after me? Oh, Bath and Body Works, you shouldn't have! ;) I wish this perfume was available all year!
  • PINK Warm & Cozy - I originally saw this on Bethany's (MacBarbie07) Favorites video and was like, "I need to smell this." This girl makes me buy everything, I swear. I ended up loving it and received it for Christmas!
  • Victoria's Secret Heavenly - This perfume makes me drool in a totally good way. It's a sweet mix of chocolate and cinnamon and I don't even know how to describe it other then that if you don't have this, you need this!
Favorite Polishes:
Essie Sand Tropez, Pomegranate Midnight Satellite, P&K Bruised, China Glaze Sweet Hook, Lynnderella Sweet Dreams, Dollish Polish Expecto Patronum, Bad Ass Polish Blig!, Candy Lacquer Sugar Skulls, butterLONDON Teddy Girl, Essie Butler Please and butterLONDON Cheeky Chops! PHEW. 

Favorite Nail Accessories:
  • LUSH Lemony Butter Cuticle Butter - Thank God for this cuticle butter. I don't know what I would do without it! Cuticles actin' a fool? This is the answer! I use this overnight and wake up with smooth cuticles! While it may be expensive for such a small tub, I swear, a little goes a long way!
  • Blue Cross Cuticle Remover - This plus the Lemony Butter make for amazing nails! 
What were your 2012 Favorites? I had such a hard time putting this post together. I had so many favorites (especially make up and nail polish)!
