Favorite Non-MAC Beauty Buys for 2012?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 

Let me start by openly admitting that I stole this idea from several threads in the MAC forums asking about favorite MAC products of the year, worst MAC products of the year, etc...

 

I am a MAC fan, but lately I have been buying a lot more from other brands than from MAC.  So I was wondering what everyone's favorite non-MAC beauty buys were this year.  The products do not have to be limited edition or new.  They can be products that have been around for a while that you finally decided to try.  I also love these type of threads b/c they turn me on to products that I may have previously overlooked.

 

In 2012 what were your favorite non-MAC buys in the following categories:

 

1. Skincare

2. Face (foundations, concealers, primers, etc..)

3. Blush

4. Bronzer

5. Highlighter/Illuminator

6. Eyeshadow

7. Eyeliner

8. Mascara

9. Lipstick

10. Lip Gloss

11. Brushes or Other Makeup Application Tools

12. Nail products

This is a great idea! I don't own nearly as many Mac products as I own other brands, because I feel some of the quality is better. You should start a thread for Drugstore finds of 2012. That would be a nice one to have too.

 

Anyways, here is my list:

 

1. Skincare

Clinique 3-Step System

 

2. Face (foundations, concealers, primers, etc..)

Lancome 24 H Teinte Idole in 460, Nars Concealer stick in Armande

 

3. Blush

Nars Taos

 

4. Bronzer

CG Bronzer in Ebony Bronze

 

5. Highlighter/Illuminator

Benefit High Beam

 

6. Eyeshadow

Laura Mercier Black Karat

 

7. Eyeliner

Lancome Art liner

 

8. Mascara

Givenchy 4 in 1 Mascara

 

9. Lipstick

MUFE Aqua Rouge

 

10. Lip Gloss

Hourglass Lipgloss in Siren

 

11. Brushes or Other Makeup Application Tools

The Body Shop brushes, Real Technique also

 

12. Nail products

I'll probably change my mind in 10 minutes, but here goes...

 

 

1. Skincare- Korres Wild Rose serum, Skyn Iceland Oxygen Infusion Night Cream, Peter Thomas Roth Laser-free range

2. Face (foundations, concealers, primers, etc..)- Primer: Armani Fluidmaster, Foundation- Becca Luminious Skin Foundation, Urban Decay Naked Skin

3. Blush- Guerlain Rose aux Joues, particularly Red Hot (honourable mention to Chanel Rose Initiale and Nars Outlaw, both of which I wear a lot)

4. Bronzer- didn't buy any

5. Highlighter/Illuminator- Edward Bess South of France, which is both a light blush and a highlighter on me, but I wear it all the time

6. Eyeshadow- very difficult. RBR Angelic Cockatiels was definitely one of my most used. Nars Lhasa was a favourite... Then there are palettes like Guerlain Turandot...

7. Eyeliner- I feel like this was the year I discovered eyeliners and stopped just buying cheap ones. UD Perversion definitely wins for most-used, but Stile Lionfish was a big deal for me as well

8. Mascara- YSL Faux Cils mascara continues to rule for me

9. Lipstick- Too difficult to pick!! I loved so many that came out this year, or that were already permanent, but I bought. 

10. Lip Gloss- Armani Raspberry Zincite. Even I'm shocked at how often I wear this.

11. Brushes or Other Makeup Application Tools- Sort of like with eye liners, this was the year I invested in brushes. Probably my favourite is my most recent purchase- the Nars Yachiyo, although I'm very fond of my Tom Ford blending brush as well!

12. Nail products- Spa Ritual Conglomerate is pretty special!

8. Mascara

maybelline false lashes mascara. good stuff. no fallout.

 

9. Lipstick

10. Lip Gloss

no contenders here for me...not a big gloss person!

 

11. Brushes or Other Makeup Application Tools

i love the brush that came with my bobbi brown nudes eye palette.  it's got two sides, both of which work very well -- as good as most full size brushes!
