2012 Favorites!! (long post!)

Well, I had planned on posting this the day after new years,
but we are getting NO sun or decent light for me to take pictures in,
and until I can make a decent lightbox- i have to stick with daylight :/

SO, I decided to do my Favorites post based on my favorite products from this past year,
instead of just December.
I've divided them into categories,
and here they are!

UD Naked Skin Foundation
