10 Must-See Beauty Products for 2012

I’m a sucker for the latest and greatest lotions and potions; I admit it. Sephora is like my own personal kid-in-a-candy-store experience, and several beauty brands have earned a loyalty in my heart (ahem, wallet).

I’ve also been known to stalk the newest beauty products and trends, which is how I found these 10 new beauty products to keep on your radar:

  • BB Creams 1 of 10
    BB Creams
    BB creams are the hottest new beauty products for 2012 — which act as SPF-protecting moisturizer, foundation, anti-aging formula, and makeup primer in one. They're just starting to come to the States (after a successful run over in Asia) with brands such as Clinique, Smashbox, Garnier, and Estee Lauder.
    Buy from Sephora, $39

    Katy Perry Eylure
    Katy Perry just came out with a new line of reusable false eyelashes in four different styles: Oh My! (textured and layered), Sweetie Pie (subtle and natural), Oh, Honey! (va-va-voom), and Cool Kitty (with manicured tips).
    Buy from Ulta, $6.99 each.

    Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Liquid Foundation
    Benefit is about to release their first liquid foundation! Its biggest feature is the oxygen hydrating complex, which boosts cellular respiration, plumps up fine lines, and infuses skin with Vitamins C and E (known anti-agers). We also love that it has SPF 25 protection.

  • Bumble and bumble Concen-straight Smoothing Treatment 5 of 10
    Bumble and bumble Concen-straight Smoothing Treatment

    Buy from Sephora, $45.

    ALTERNA 1 Night Highlights
    Temporary hair color is a big trend for 2012 — like this créme-mousse formula that creates vibrant highlights that wash out with one shampoo.
    Buy from Sephora, $29.
  • Maybelline EyeStudio Color Tattoo 24 Cream Gel Shadow 7 of 10
    Maybelline EyeStudio Color Tattoo 24 Cream Gel Shadow

  • Kate Somerville 360 Face Self Tanning Pads 8 of 10
    Kate Somerville 360 Face Self Tanning Pads
    These self-tanning pads could be an easy beauty solution for those who want sun-kissed skin yet obsessively slather on sunscreen. These pads claim to create a glowing complexion in two to four hours, gradually darkening into a complementary color. I also love that it's made with no harsh chemicals like parabens, sulfates, synthetic dyes, and petrochemicals.
    Buy from Sephora, $48
  • Zap Acne Spot Treatment Device 9 of 10
    Zap Acne Spot Treatment Device
    We're not hormonal 16-year-old girls anymore — why are we still dealing with breakouts? The newest zit zapper is a pocket-size version that uses blue-light technology, sonic vibration, and gentle warming to clear up blemishes fast.
    Buy from Sephora, $49
  • Goodie Quick Style Paddle Brush 10 of 10
    Goodie Quick Style Paddle Brush
    Another promising tool for busy moms, this Goody paddle brush is made with microfiber antimacrobial bristles that soak up wetness like sponges. Hitting shelves in March for $11.99.
