Best Beauty Buys of 2012

MUA Undressed Palette

I can’t believe this palette cost me just £3, unfortunately I haven’t tried the Urban Decay Naked palettes (£3 is more in my price range than £36) but I’ve heard the MUA palette is the next best thing.

The eyeshadows last almost all day without the use of a primer and the colours are so pigmented!

I reviewed it here.

GOSH Holographic Nail Polish

Although it claims to be a one night only polish, every time I use it seems to last at least two days! It is probably the polish I use the most and is definitely worth £4.99 (I don’t normally spend as much as that on a nail polish haha!)

My review is here.

Primark Lipstick

I bought this lipstick for £1 back in April and loved it so much I went back for more and fortunately for me, they had all been reduced to 50p! So now I own about five!

This lipstick is so pigmented and lasts so long, even when drinking it hardly wears off. Weirdly, I prefer this to my Mac lipstick!

Lush Lip Scrub

I was bought this for Christmas 2011 and in 2012 I bought Popcorn and Sweet Lips, I can’t get enough! The scrub is great to use before applying lipstick to remove any dry skin and to make sure the lipstick applies a lot smoother! It tastes great too!

I reviewed this product last year here.

Dermalogica Clean Start day/night 3 step

This is a great little travel kit I bring with me whenever I stay at a friends or my boyfriends. It’s also improved my skin so much and has definitely kept away the spots! (Don’t get me wrong. I still get spots, but the amount has reduced so much!) I got this kit in Glossybox but it seems to retail for under £10 online so I need to order myself another kit as this has run out now! 🙁

    Wanted that MUA palette a while ago but have not had time with revising for exams! Definitely on my list of things to get after exams over!

    I've got the MUA palette in Au Naturel and it is honestly wonderful – I was so surprised at the pigmentation!
