December 2014 Favourites feat. Maybelline, Too Faced, Urban Decay, Stila and Yankee Candles
I know, I know I have spoken about Stila's Kitten eyeshadow before but it is just so gorgeous and gives your total make up look a pop of glitter and was totally in sync with all the christmassy glittery decorations that were surrounding us over the past month. I also love it, because it doesn't drop glitter all over your cheeks as some shadows with the glitter in have a tendency to do.. The last shadow that I have only recently discovered when I was searching through my eyeshadow palette collection and that is Urban Decays' Midnight Cowgirl. It is very, very similar to Stila's Kitten but I had to include it into my favourites.
I have been wearing more bronzers this past month than blushers and two in particular have really stood out to me. One is a high street bronzer and the other is a little more high end. Maybelline's Dream Sun Bronzer is a really beautiful brown, and isnt too orange on me, which some bronzers can turn. This bronzer is extremely pigmented and so you only need to tap your bronzer brush into the powder, just very lightly and that will give you enough colour for your look.
As you can probably tell from the picture I haven't touched the blush part as of yet, but I am sure this pretty peachy coral blush will get lots of use in the upcoming Spring and Summer months. The other bronzer I have loved for a long time is the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil bronzer. The fact that it smells of chocolate and cocoa the minute you open is only a small part of why I love it. This is a true brown bronzer, and as with the previous product you only need the tiniest amount to create the perfect bronzed cheek.
It is a very sweet smelling tea light, but I love those types of fragrances and as soon as I smelt this I was in love. I have nearly used all of this fragrance up, and will be on the look out for a bigger version of it too, as it has quickly reached my top ten of favourite Yankee scents. I was very dubious in the past about how long the tea lights would last and whether they were worth the money in purchasing them. But I have found they have lasted 8-10 hours each and so I think that is really good for a small tea light. I totally recommend looking out for this fragrance when you are at a Yankee Candle stockist.
Well, that is this month's favourites. Have I mentioned any of your favourites? Let me know in the comments below. I love to read all of your comments and suggestions. So please feel free to share your favourites with me too.
