The 2012 Purty Issue

So the other night I couldn't sleep. Insomnia has the best of me sometimes and at 1 am I was watching Oprah and the episode where she gives away her favorite things at Christmas. No, I am not giving away this stuff but I thought it would be fun to let you in each week on what I found fantastico this year. We all see things or blogs and think, what products do they use, how do they do their hair, oh, I love that outfit and even though most of us link back to things its fun to share some of the personal things in our lives that we use or want in a 6 year old at Christmas kind of way. This week is Beauty and the in between. So here's the Tater Queens picks of 2012.

The Bombshell Sultra Wand - WISH LIST but at $130 smacks I will dream, but read the reviews on it. Amaze!
Beyond the Zone Noodle Head Curl Enhancer - said it once I say it again, the bomb for beachy waves. (side note..I used this Thanksgiving Day and Saturday my hair still had body to it).
Hard Candy Glamoflauge Concealer - Awesome coverup and cheap! A little goes a long way. Psst. Go 2 Walmart.
St. Tropez Bronzing Lotion - used this for years. It gives a perfect cocoa color not orange and they make this remover to get the yuck off your hands afterwards. 
OPI Nail LacQuer in I Brake For Manicures - I like dark colors on my toes and this is a must. A little black, a little dark gray and a little plum.

Urban Decay Naked 2 - WISH LIST - I have NAKED and love it so much I want to have the 2 palette.
Sephora Microsmooth Baked Blush in Guava Glow - I like this. A little pink a little peach and a faint glow. A little goes along way.
NYX Megashine Lipgloss in Nude Peach - I am a lipgloss fanatic. Sad and true I have probably over 40. But I have a few I always turn to and this is one of them. I LOVE this color and they are cheap like $5 bucks and Ulta usually runs a special buy one get another half price. Do it!
Revlon Photo Ready Foundation - I used to be a MAC girl but economy forced me try different things. I have been using this for about two weeks and I honestly love it. Smooth I don't look washed out in photos. Apply with makeup brush. 

Olay Anti Wrinkle Cream 2+1 Day Serum - I truly believe any woman at the age of 30 should start using some type of anti aging formula especially if you seek the sun. This is the bomb. Its light, smooth and fills in the creases. 
Olay Pro X Cleansing Brush - Yes, the Clarisonic is awesome but this is a cheaper alternative at $30 smacks and I alternate the anti aging wash with my regular deep cleanser because I have combo skin. I noticed a difference in a week.
Burberry London - My scent. I probably will never change. I love it that much.
Bath and Body Butter Warm Vanilla Sugar - I love this stuff. Not only does it smell devine, it is silky smooth and leaves your legs shiny for that cute mini or shorty shorts.

There you have it. My Beauty picks for 2012. Yes, there probably is a lot more but these are the one's that I go to and a few I wish for. Come back next week for more of my favorite things in Fashion 2012.

So what are your picks? I love stuff, give me the 411.

Happy Wednesday,

  1. The noodle head stuff... you had body still? That's awesome! My big problem other than my stupid hair not growing, is FRIZZZZZZZ! I always am told to not wash my hair everyday. luckily I dont have greesy hair.. so I have been doing that but my hair is so frizy no matter what stuff I put in it, doesnt help. Suggestions?

  2. You better hope your secret santa reads this! I thought you wanted an anal bleaching kit? Or was it a tooth bleaching kit. I'm so confused.
    love you sissy, and I'll be expecting a giant cardboard cut out of you.

  3. I cannot tell you how much I love the Naked 2 palette. It has quickly become my most favorite thing.

  4. I've never used a wand before! I would probably suck at it.

  5. I'm also a lipgloss junkie!! It's embarrassing how many i have. My favorite is Orgasm by Nars. I always make sure i have a tube of that at all times. I love those EOS balls for when i go to bed and for around the house. I bought the Clarisonic face scrubber a few years ago and now i'm pissed that Olay came out with their version. To replace the brush on mine , i could buy a new Olay kit. I dont wear eyeshadow. I'm a freak that never learned how to put it on correctly. I wear liquid eyeliner though and my fave is Makeup Forever. It stays on all day. I get at Ulta or Sephora. So there. You asked!! Love you Chickie

    1. I just throw one color of shadow on but anymore than that I cant do. HOW DO YOU USE LIQUID LINER?! I look redonk when i use it!

  6. I want the olay thing so badly! Could you please consider following each other?

  7. I want the Olay thingy thingy!!

  8. Great picks! The Naked 2 is fabulous! The Olay version of the Clarisonic looks great too and way cheaper!!

  9. I have wanted one of those olay cleaning brushes for EVER! maybe I will ask Santa for one this year.

  10. I'm a Burberry London girl too....well of the 5 perfumes I rotate through. I seriously need to get a job, all this wishlists items make me want to shop!

  11. you are such a beauty supply whore. All i use is mud from this fine earth. oh and all this other shit i hate paying for.

    hard candy eyeliner is my favorite eyeliner of all time for the record.

  12. I still need to go get my noodle on....thanks for reminding me. And maybe I drew you...maybe I didn't...but if I did, maybe you will get something off your wish list...but don't hold your breath!! ;)

  13. All the tings! I actually knew a Coast Guard wife who was at that show...she's getting all the tings. To dream...

  14. I need a cleansing brush, I really do. I shall maybe try that one!

  15. oooh love love! but yeah $130, thats a lotta dough. and I love burberry london. one of my faves.

  16. ok as much is that wand is super cute it is expensive and it is so much cheaper to take a $30 curling iron and unhinge the clasp and there you go $100 saved!

  17. Ugh, I love Burberry, but it reminds Will of his ex, so he doesn't like it. Haha.

  18. Cool post!
    Gorgeous blog! Following you on Bloglovin! Hope you'll follow me back! <3

  19. I want that Bombshell wand! The Olay cleansing brush, does it really work? I'm so intrigued by the clarisonic but it's too expensive to buy without knowing if it works. And the Olay wrinkle cream... I've been using the Neutrogena anti wrinkle cream, but I feel like every time I put it on, I see MORE wrinkles (or I could be going insane), so maybe I should switch brands.

    xo, Yi-chia

  20. I've heard so many good things about The Bombshell. I have a cheap Conair wand right now, but would love something "real".

  21. Hi! I would like to open beauty salon. Does anybody have an experience in this business? There are too many options in different salon equipment. Could anybody give me an advise? What store is more reliable to buy Mini microdermabrasion machine and 4 in 1 microdermabrasion machine. I'm choosing between Advance-Esthetic and Spa&Equipment websites.
