Khadine's Favorite Beauty Products of 2012 -- PART 1

Hola chicas!  Let's talk about all the great products I had the pleasure of using in 2012.  I narrowed it down to my top 14 beauty products and have listed the first 7 here (in no particular order).  The first on this list is a Bobbi Brown Corrector....but I don't use it for the reason you think I should.  Click below for the details plus the rest of my top picks for the year...

1. Bobbi Brown Corrector in Dark Peach
The Bobbi Brown Corrector in Dark Peach is at least 2 or 3 shades lighter than my complexion (don't let the "dark" in the name fool you) with a peachy tint (which is the key to the "correcting" action).  I, however, don't use this product as a corrector...I use it as an undereye highlight!  Do you ever have that problem where your highlight color looks waaay too ashy?  Well this is my solution!

2. Ben Nye Translucent Powder in Topaz
You know I love this product if you've seen my video review on YouTube
It comes in as a close second to my MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Powder in Dark (which is a staple in my personal collection).

3. YSL Touche Eclat in #4 Luminous Toffee

I don't want to say too much about the YSL Touche Eclat because I plan on doing an individual review on this product....but let's just say I need a re-fill!  I finished my first tube about half-way through the year (last summer) and definitely think it's worth a repurchase.   Oh, for those of you who may not's a highlighting concealer.

4. Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer in Walnut

This was absolutely my go-to tinted moisturizer in 2012.  I also have the NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer that came out earlier in the year, but I tended to reach for this more often because it gives better coverage.  Here's the video review 
5. MAC Viva Glam II Lipstick (Satin Finish)

I definitely went through an I'm-obsessed-with-nude-lips-phase in 2012 and no other lipstick enabled that obsession more than my MAC Viva Glam II lipstick!  It's a pinky-nude...perfect for my taste.  You can see me wearing it in this video (as well as the beginning of this one). 

6. MAC Viva Glam GAGA Lipstick
(Lustre Finish)

Every girl at some point wants to be pretty in pink, right?  Although this light pink color can be intimidating to some women of color afraid of that "milky"'s sheer enough to NOT go that route, especially if you pair it with an appropriate lip liner (I tend to use one that's either flesh-toned or plum colored). You can seem me wearing it in this post

7. MAC Lip Pencil in Cork

This is my favorite flesh-toned lip liner.  I'm open to finding a new favorite in 2013, but boy did it serve me well in 2012!  As a matter of fact, it never leaves my purse. You can see me wearing it in this post with my favorite nude lipstick.

....So that's it for PART I of my favorites of 2012...stay tuned for PART II!
