December Favourites

Hola lovelies!




 Hope you all had awesome festivities and all! I thought I'd share some of the things I've been using for December. (Click here for non-beauty favourites)






 For lips: I've been loving Mac's Everhip (sadly discontinued) and Revlon lip butter in Tutti Frutti. 




For eyes: MUA's popular Heaven and Earth palette is more flattering for me than most of the colours in the Naked palette *please don't shoot me!* . I've especially been using 1 for the crease and sometimes all over the lid *my love for it is pretty evident since I've hit pan*! 2 I've recently started used as a lid colour, they are the prettiest, warm browns that look flattering on almost all skin tones. Trust me I've used them on several of my friends ranging from light to dark!




Using this combination of the eyelash curler and mascara, you can actually see my eyelashes. The eyelash curler is honestly not the best but it does the job, thought I really want to get the renowned Shu Uemura one. In contrast with its name, the Collection (or whatever it is now) Skyscraper mascara is not very Skyscraper-y it gives a slightly natural look.



Another favourite is the Urban Decay 27/7 Glide on eye pencil in Whiskey and Zero wowee what a mouthful! It came with the Naked palette and as you can tell from the receding length I've been using Whiskey quite religiously recently. Expect a review on it soon! 





For the face: I have done a review on the Topshop Blush in Neon Rose (which you can find HERE)  but in a nutshell ; it's love! 
The Mac Mineralize Concealer in Nw50 is a light concealer which almost blurs imperfections rather than cover it.(Review HERE
I've done a review on the Sleek Contour kit which you can find here. I use it to contour all over my face and would be rather lost without it when I do a full face of makeup! 



Other: I've finally found my 'holy grail' cleanser- the Liz Earl Cleanse and Polish has been 'hyped' in the blogsphere and for good reason too! It's rather wonderful dear readers *posh voice*.
Another cliche product, Batiste Dry Shampoo, again stood up to 'the claims' and doesn't leave a white cast in my hair. I will be doing an in depth review of this. 
Bioderma, the most hyped in my opinion and much like all hyped products I was very skeptical so bought the smallest size.
However, I will be investing in the 500ml as it is gentle, with no scent and not irritating and together with the Cleanse and polish works wonders! It featured in my wishlist.

                                 So what are your favourites? 
                 Hope you enjoyed reading that rather lengthy post!

Toodles!!
