Happy New Year everyone! I hope 2013 is a fantastic year for you!
Here are my favorite products of 2012. Can you believe it is the 3rd time I've done these yearly favorites?
As with each yearly favorites, I've tried to only include products which were new to me this year, or that I newly reviewed this year. Please check out my past favorites (2011, 2010, 2009) as I still love and recommend most of them!
Best new Skin care item
I loved the bergamot scent!
This is a super convenient product - just apply it to your face and go to sleep. Great for lazy people like me! I also loved that my skin quickly absorbed this and it did not leave a sticky residue.
This is an incredibly moisturizing hand cream. I loved that it did not leave a strong scent on my hands. It is well worth the price!
Yes, I know - this is not a new product for me. In fact, this is my favorite make up remover!
Best new makeup items
I'm probably the last person in the beauty blogger world to review these. HUGE thanks to my kind blogger friends who sent me these!
I loved how this made my lashes look. I loved how this product lasted. I also loved how this clicks shut. L'Oreal has a few more mascaras in its Voluminous line, and I hope I have the chance to try them out soon!
This is the ONLY nail polish I am buying from now on. I am a total klutz who can not keep nail polish from smudging, so this is totally the way to go! Plus, I love the different colors and designs available.
This is my favorite non-silicone face primer, and it does not have the orange undertone of the original Rimmel Fix and Perfect.
This is fantastic to quickly apply a thin layer of foundation. AND it's only $10!!!
Having a regular schedule helped me to commit to blogging. I strongly recommend it to any busy blogger!
Most reviewed brand on Cosmeddicted in 2012
Lush (12 times)
Anyone surprised? I didn't think so.
This is the 3rd consecutive year that Lush was the most reviewed brand on this blog.
Out of 46 reviews that I did this year, Lush was by far the most reviewed brand. The second most reviewed brand, L'Oreal, had only 4 reviews.
Favorite new Lush item
I wasn't planning to include any limited edition items, but I really liked the smell of this shower gel. It reminds me of oranges and spices.
Favorite blog post of 2011
There are quite a few reasons why I loved this vacation.
1. I grew up in New York and I love the city. I need to go back every few years
2. I bought a DSLR just before this trip and I had fun learning how to use it.
3. This vacation put a lot of things into perspective for me
Most viewed blog post
I was really surprised at how popular this blog post was. It quickly became my number 1 viewed post, and I get tons of views daily.
In some ways, I was more surprised at how many views I got for this product, since it had been released quite a while before I got it, and it is more widely available compared to Baby Foot.
Thanks again for your love and support to this blog!
