Makeup Highlights of 2012 Tag

Caitie from Naturalla Beauty has tagged me to do the Makeup Highlights of 2012 tag. This is the first time that I've been tagged, that I've noticed anyway. Since I didn't do any 2012 favourites for makeup or skin care, I thought it would be fun.

Here we go!

1. Which makeup brand stood out to you most in 2012? (Drugstore and High End)
I don't really buy makeup from the drugstore. The brands that stood out most would have to be Alima Pure and Pure+Simple. Alima Pure is fairly affordable and great quality. I've tried their tinted lip balms, foundation and bronzer. Pure+Simple has absolutely fantastic blushes, that I've been using daily for months and haven't hit pan yet!

2. Best new discovery of 2012?
Zuzu Luxe mascara! I didn't like this mascara at all when I first tried it.  I am now on my second tube and realized that I like it better once it dries up a bit.

3. Best re-discovery -- A product that you fall in love with over and over again?
I actually don't have one. All of my makeup from 2012 is new and I don't have much to begin with.

4. Best seasonal product 2012? Winter / Spring / Summer / Fall
I'm with Caitie, I don't change up my makeup based on season.  If I want to rock a dark bold lip in the middle of summer, I will dammit! I actually really loved Physicians Formula Organic Wear Bronzer & Blush for the Summer. I still wore it in Fall and Winter, but not nearly as much as Summer. I also absolutely adored the Tarte LipSurgence™ Natural Matte Lip Tint (in Hope) combined with Bite Beauty Lip Shine (in Vintage) for Fall and Winter.  Both were in the Sephora Give Me Some Lip Set.

5. Best and worst limited edition collections of 2012? (Drugstore and High End)
I actually have no answer for this one. I'm lame, what else can I say?!

6. Most regretted purchase of 2012?

It pains me to say this, only because my boyfriend bought it for me and he reads my blog, BUT the Jane Iredale Disappear Concealer. This stuff is so sticky and hard to blend. I really enjoyed it at first, but I can't wait to use it up now.

7. Youtube and beauty highlights 2012?
Again, gotta agree with Caitie! Finding more green YouTubers and bloggers really stood out to me. I'm not going to list them all, you can check out the bloggers that I follow on my main page (some of them are YouTubers). Beauty highlights would be getting into makeup and discovering new makeup brands.

8. What is your favorite / best video on your own channel?

I don't make videos, but have thought about making some!

9. Best recommendation of 2012 from someone else?
I didn't actually get recommended anything, but read reviews on the Zuzu Luxe Mascara that I fell in love with.  So much so that I bought another one before finishing my first tube!

10. Best makeup tool 2012?
My EcoTools Bronzer brush! This brush is fantastic for mineral makeup and sheering out heavy contour and blush. I literally use it every single day and love it to bits.

11. What are the products you are excited to try in 2013?
I am excited to try a bunch of products from The All Natural Face, Vapour Organics, Everyday Minerals and whatever other brands I have yet to try!

12. Will you do a Makeup Collection in 2013, or an updated version?
Yes! I've actually been thinking about doing this.  I literally don't have much makeup, so it's all thrown into a makeup bag.

That's it, that's all!

Let me know if there are any tags you'd like me to do. Also, if you've done this tag, link it below. If you haven't, then I tag YOU! I also tag Naturally Marcy :)


  1. Yay, I'm glad you did the tag :) I work right by one of the Pure+Simple spas/stores - I keep meaning to pop in one day and check it out!

    1. Thanks for tagging me! You do? I'm jealous. Go check it out, you'll love their stuff.

  2. Wah! I barely use makeup so it was really hard filling out the tag. All my answers are like no, I don't know, and No..? Haha, I can say that the make up product that stood out to me the most was Vapour Organic Beauty's Atmosphere Luminous Foundation because it went on super easy, light/medium coverage and looks pretty good on my skin. It was the only foundation I found so far that looks like skin or better.


Thanks for the comment/feedback!
