December Favorites


 December to me is all about Christmas, Christmas shopping, Christmas baking, and of course Festive makeup. Usually December would be filled with gold eyeshadows, berry lips, and lots of highlights, but not this year. Yes I have worn gold shimmery shadows to holiday get togethers, but I have really been reaching for the pinky red tone eyeshadow and nude lips.

Maybelline Fit Me! Matte+Poreless Foundation

 I have heard a ton about this foundation for a while now but just got around to picking it up this week. I have used the Fit Me! powder and really wasn't that impressed with it, but the foundation is a whole heap better.
This foundation has a great medium to high coverage, and has a really nice natural finish. The only down side to this product for me is that it just pours out, which makes it easier for me to get way to much product.

 Physicians Formula Conceal RX

I bought this concealer of a whim, I hadn't heard anything good or bad about it. Its quite a thick creamy texture, and you just need a little of it. This gives great coverage, and a smooth finish.

 Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder

I don't know how I have made it this far without trying this powder. Seriously, this stuff is bordering magical! My makeup has been coming out perfectly ever since I started using it, which has been what? Two weeks? No small feet for such an unassuming looking product.

 Too Faced Peppermint Mocha Palette

I did a full review of the Grande Hotel Café  Here, and I love the whole set, but this one has been my favorite lately. To be precise Peppermint Cream, Sprinkles, and Christmas Blend have been my favorites lately. These three are perfect for making the cool pink look I have been loving this month.

 Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Midnight Cowboy

I have had to made a point to use this shadow because I find it easier just to use a palette, so really out of sheer laziness I hadn't discovered how lovely this is. It is a lovely off white shade with sparkle mixed in, the sparkle does tend to find its way to my cheek from time to time but its just one or two flakes and I actually think its pretty.

 Tarte Amazonion Clay Blush in Blushing Bride

This blush is amazing! The color, the pigmentation, the wear, its just so nice. I know I have said this before, but the shade is a bit darker than I would norally wear so I have to use it very sparingly.

 Too Faced Candlelight Glow Highlighter in Rosy Glow

When has this not been a favorite? Really I think this could be in every monthly favorites post and it wouldn't be over doing it. Its just that gorgeous.
I have recently only been using more shimmery highlighters close the temples, I don't know if everyone does this but I think it helps my face have a glow, but not look to over board.

 Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Lipstick

This lipstick is a really nice light tan color, its a little bit hard to describe the shade.
I have been wearing this one all the time lately. The only problem I have with this lipstick is that it can make my lips feel dry. I counter this by applying lip balm right before applying.

BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss in Best Dressed

I love the moxie glosses SO much! They are wonderful little things, that don't feel all gooey on. This shade is perfect for the holidays. Its a beautiful dark red berry color. I'm afraid the swatch below doesn't do it justice at all.
