Arrrgghhh, so another year is actually over! I don’t know about you, but it seems to me that the older you get the quicker the years pass! I probably should have uploaded this post sooner but I honestly haven’t had the time, so instead I am doing it today!
I will have uploaded my December favourites to youtube, so if you want to see those then go check that out!
Since starting my beauty blog earlier this year, my beauty regime has completely changed beyond recognition and I have made a lot of new beauty discoveries! Some have been good, some have been bad but here are my personal favoruites!
Normally I am a eyeshadow kind of person, but this year I have really been loving my bold lips! Earlier this year I purchased and reviewed the Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in the colour Rendevous (swatched below, it’s the orange red at the very top), and my love for lip crayons then spiralled! I went on to purchase the Rimmel Colour Rush in the Red the Better (second swatched), which is amazing and totally understated. It smells of coca butter and leaves my lips feeling really soft. The final one that I purchased and again I really liked, is the much raved about Bourjois Colour Boost in plum russian, this is a lot more glossy than the other’s and is beautiful!
You completely expected this next one I’m sure and it is totally predictable, but I HAVE to include it! It is the NARS BLKR lipstick! This has been my staple in November and December! Love it!!
I have been loving these two foundations this year, because I have been really looking for a brightening pick me up! While the YSL Le Teint Touch Eclat is too die for and is mt absolute fave (I am looking forward to treating myself to the Youth Liberator this month too), the Bourjois Healthy Mix is an excellent high-street alternative! FYI the darker is the Bourjois, while the lighter is the YSL foundation! On occassion I have mixed the both of them to get the perfect colour!
Yup, another predictable one, my Naked 3 was always going to make it in to the list! I LOVE this, and since I was given this for Christmas I have been using it every single day! I have therefore developed four go to shades- Strange, Nooner, Limit and Factory!
I have literally not stopped using this mascara since I purchased it in the summer, and have already repurchased it three times. I can honestly say that it is my favourite!
I really loved this product throughout the summer. I don’t agree with it being marketed as a a primer, but I use it over my foundation as a gorgeous cream bronzer. This little offering from Bourjois is seriously worth it’s money, super pigmented only a small amount is needed but it blends seamlessly and looks really natural on the skin. Brilliant.
I liked the foundation from this range but hugely disliked the concealer at first, but I have really grown to love it! It is almost empty now and I will be re purchasing this shortly!
Last of all I have been loving these two this year. The first is one of the Avon blushes and requires a lot of blending, the second is a L’Oreal in Rosewood.
What have you been loving this year?
