Product Girl Favorites of 2012



It’s time for a beauty year in review.  Trust us, picking just 10 favorites for an entire year was no easy feat. We discovered a plethora of new brands and fell in love with so much. These 10 favorites are the products we use constantly. The ones that really stand out and we would buy over and over again!

BECCA Bolero Mineral Blush is a flattering terracotta shade that doubles as a bronzer. It’s my perfect cheek.

This bright cobalt Essie Butler Please nail polish is stunning and a newer discovery!  I’m confident I will wear this constantly in 2013.

Every morning starts with a cup of coffee and One Love Organics Morning Glory serum. It contains a ton of antioxidant power and perk-up ingredients like peppermint oil.

Highlighters are a Product Girl’s best friend and we are partial to the pale bronzy gold Benefit Sun Beam.

Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pad for Body just make everything look and feel tighter and naturally tanned. Like an Rx for the Vitamin D deficient.

Hands down, my favorite shadow of 2012: NARS Vent Glace Duo Eyeshadow

Still mystified by the brightening powers of Bare Escentuals Well Rested Face & Eye Brightener.

Melvita Orange Blossom Extraordinary Water brings me to a happy place and is always step one in my skin care routine, day and night.

The perfect top knot achieved with Sarah Potempa The Wrap-Up. And low bun, messy undone bun, etc. It does it all and perfectly.

NARS Mexican Rose Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil is the longest wearing lip product I’ve ever worn (and it’s not technically a stain!) I always have a good day when wearing this gorgeous bright pink.

Any favorites you’d like to share? Let us know your thoughts on 2012 standout beauty!

  1. Great picks! My fave new acquisitions this year? Nars Arabian Nights palette, Buxom Big and Healthy Lipstick in Barcelona, Obsessive Compulsive Lip Tar in Vintage, Dior’s Garden Pastels palette, and Origins Starting Over moisturizer.

    Having received a Birchbox subscription for Christmas, and having become a regular visitor to this blog, I look forward to more super finds in 2013!

  2. Loving your picks especially the Essie Butler Please. Need to add to my mini nail polish collection asap. Happy Holidays!

  3. We are thrilled that you included Morning Glory in this fantastic lineup! Thank you so much!
    One of our favorite beauty finds of 2012 is the Oona Noir Sheer Lipstick by Julie Hewett. It is a beautiful cherry red but goes on with a beautiful sheer, not heavy, finish. It was the perfect finish to our New Year’s Eve look!
