December Favourites 2014

Friday, December 12, 2014

Monthly favourites are one of my most requested posts, even though I don't often do them. I missed my November favourites at the end of last month but felt that I had quite a few things I wanted to share with you, so instead I've brought you this post to update you on my favourite beauty and skincare items. I hope you like it!

Great Lash Mascara by Maybelline
Despite a lot of people complaining about this mascara, I have to say that I really enjoy using it. The packaging is user-friendly (as well as really cute) and I love how the brush is small, making application more precise and easy to do. The product itself is a great consistency, never making my lashes look spidery or clumpy. It is perfect for making your lashes longer, voluminous and darker all at the same time. I also like how one coat can achieve a really natural look. Overall, this product is amazing and I would really recommend it.

Natural Glow Palette by Barry M
This palette is one that is very versatile and can be used everyday, whether that's for a natural look or not. The packaging is almost identical to a Stila palette, which I think is a nice touch. There are 2 matte shades in this palette, a white which is great for highlighting and a brown which can be used either all over the lid or in the crease. The other 4 shadows are shimmery, the pale rose being a great lid colour and the remaining looking nice in the crease. They are all extremely pigmented and it even contains a blush, making this palette suitable for travel.

Beauty Blush Lip-Stix by Models Own
It's winter, so you'd probably expect me to be wearing dark, berry lipstick. In actual fact, I've quite often been wearing a thin layer of this underneath some lipgloss. It's a bright pink but I usually only apply a bit and sheer it out with my finger, as I feel it looks better that way. The product itself is matte but still feels nourishing when you apply it. With a lipgloss, it makes a beautiful combination that I've really been enjoying wearing recently.

Micellar Water by L'Oreal
This is a great product for removing your facial makeup, as well as anything on your eyes and lips. It claims to purify, unclog pores, tone and soothe skin, all of which I feel it achieves. It isn't harsh like other cleansers and is delicate on the skin. There is no greasy residue left behind and your skin isn't tight after using it. After using this, I've noticed my skin feels a lot cleaner and nicer, so I'll definitely be repurchasing this when I run out!

Spot Cream by Quinoderm
Whenever I use this product, I instantly notice an improvement in my skin and my spots are nowhere near as bad. This cream is 10% benzoyl peroxide, meaning it is really strong but can quickly get rid of spots. After using this morning and night, a lot of the redness is reduced and I find my spots decreasing in size. If you suffer from acne or harsh blemishes, I would recommend trying out this cream as it has been successful for me.

I hope you liked seeing what my current favourites are and make sure you stick around, as it's not long before I'll be posting my 2014 favourites, which will definitely be worth seeing. Thank you for reading and I'll see you soon!

  1. My skin has been absolutely awful at the moment so I may have to pick up some of that Quinoderm! Have you found that it dries out the areas where you apply it?

    1. It's worth buying! And it is a bit drying if used over a long period of time, but it's a lot better than other spot creams. x

  2. The Beauty Blush Lip-Stix looks really nice!! I think I might have to go and get myself one!! lovely post X

    1. It is, you really should try them! And thank you x
