I haven’t done a monthly favourites in a pretty long time so thought I’d include one for December amongst my Blogmas series! I’ve been trying out a lot of new products within the beauty and skincare category this month so this post had definitely been an easy one to plan and come up with. If you want to find out what products I’ve been loving this month then keep on reading!
I’ve used the Clarins lip oils for quite a few years but recently purchased the Tangerine flavoured/scented one. I’m a massive fan of anything with a citrus scent and taste so knew that I’d be a fan of it but I’ve literally been wearing this non-stop. I personally find that typical lip balms don’t really do much for me during the winter months when my lips are really dry but these lip oils work wonders for me./ I wear this to bed every night and let it hydrate my lips whilst I sleep.
Never in my life did I think I’d hear myself saying that I was loving a coral toned lipstick but here I am, loving a coral toned lipstick. I dunno, I guess I’ve just never been a fan of corals on me but this lipstick is beautiful. It’s a coral/pink tone, goes with so many everyday make-up looks and gives a lovely pop of colour. The formula is smooth, creamy and comfortable but stays in place for a good few hours too. I also love the packaging and shape of the lipstick itself. It’s sharply angled and applies effortlessly.
This has hands down been my most loved cleanser over the past month! I’ve very nearly used up another little tin of the stuff and I’ve already got a back-up at the ready. This cleansing butter (or balm as I call it) melts all makeup away and leaves skin feeling clean, soft, hydrated and refreshed. It’s also one of the only cleansing butters that doesn’t seem to make my eyes sting!
If you read yesterday’s Blogmas post you’ll know how much I love this palette! Instead of repeating myself all over again, I’ll link my full review here instead. Have a read and leave a comment!
I received a sample of this a few months back when I visited my local Marc Jacobs counter in John Lewis Bristol for a makeover and fell head over heels in love with it. This mascara is hands down my favourite mascara of 2017 and I can’t wait to purchase the full size! This mascara makes my lashes absolutely huge, thickens them and makes them jet black too. Everything I look for in a mascara is delivered with this beauty!
I’ve always been a massive fan of Dior base products and can’t get enough of their Star foundation. I love how beautifully glowy it is and how it looks behind a camera too! It’s my go-to for Instagram photos or nights out because I know it’ll never let me down.
Having dry skin I’ve always been skeptical of using matte foundations but decided to try a sample of Dior Forever foundation to see how I got along with it compared to the Skin foundation. Although completely different on so many levels, I absolutely love Forever! It makes my skin look airbrushed, flawless and gives the most stunning full coverage. It’s my new go-to Winter foundation.
So, there we have my current beauty favourites and products that I’ve been obsessed with during the month of December so far! There are more but if I listed them all I’d be here all day so I’ll keep it short and sweet for now and possibly create a part 2 later in the month.
