2012 was a great year and I tried a lot of beauty products this year, more so since I started blogging full time since June 2012. The Corallista Beauty Awards is a roundup of all my favorite products of 2012 in various categories – skin/hair care, eye makeup, face & cheek makeup and lip products. This roundup may not necessarily contain products launched in 2012, but the ones I used this year.
While this is only an Editor’s Choice Awards segment so to speak, you are welcome to share your favorites in the comments section below! This post contains products in skin care and hair care category. Links to full reviews are given wherever applicable.
