BeautyStat.com -- the leading online beauty community for skincare reviews and makeup reviews -- made a round-up of some of the most uncanny, bizarre and possibly effective beauty trends from 2012. Asia provided us with some very interesting trends: remember bagel head? The Japanese beauty trend made saline injected into the forehead quite the fashion statement.
