Best in Beauty // December


Happy new year guys! I hope you all had a wonderful time celebrating whatever you did! I'm kicking off the start of 2016 with all that I have been loving throughout December!

Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Eye Showdow Palette // £40         POST

 I haven't been technically loving this the whole of December, it was a Christmas present. But I've used it everyday since I've got it and I do loooovveee it! It's true Urban Decay form, the shadows are soft, buttery, pigmented and blend with ease! Apart from the bottom row there are some really good nude shades in here! It has a range of finishes from shimmers to matte. This palette has it all! My favourite shades are:
  • Bathwater - a champayned toned shimmer
  • Zone - a mid toned warm brown
  • Punk - a lovely burgundy shade

Makeup Geek Shadows // £4.95 per pan                                  POST

Before I received my Gwen Palette I'd been loving my makeup geek shadows! If you didn't already know Makeup Geek is now available from Beauty Bay. These shadows are insanely good value money for all that they offer - creamy, buttery, well pigmentated, and blend out like a dream! You can read all about them and see them action here.

Freedom Pro Studio Glycolic Glow Tonic // £6                      POST

I picked this up just because it sounded similar to my greatly loved Pixi Glow tonic. Although at less than half the price I wasn't expecting much. But this is actually a very good dupe! It leaves my skin super soft and glowing in the same way the Pixi one does. Although the results aren't as quick as Pixi. I've been loving this none the less!

Glam Glow Youthmud // £25                                       POST

If you read my haul post with this in, you'll know I was pretty disappointed with the size for the price (a tiny 15ml) But I can now see why this is pricy stuff! Its AMAZING! I've never used anything like this! After leaving it on for 15 minutes my skin literally felt like a babies face! So soft, smooth, plump and glowing! I will definitely be repurchasing the bigger size!

Barry M Sunset Nail Paint In The shade dark side of shroom // £4.99

I love Barry M nail paints, there brilliant quality for the price and when I see my friend wearing this particular shade I knew I had to have it! I haven't worn a different shade since I brought this, which says a lot, I paint my nails nearly every other day! The shade is a gorgeous mauve, that looks so pretty on nails. I've had so many compliments wearing this!

MAC Stone lipstick // £15.50                                           POST

This has been my lipstick of choice this month.The shade is muted greyish taupe brown, with slight warm undertones. The has a rich opague colour in true MAC lipstick style. I love this shade I've never seen anything like it!

What have you guys been loving this month?

Until Next time...
