December 2016 Favorites14:20
December is a festive month and I definitely used a lot of shimmery products this month. I've been reading a lot of 2016 favorites and mine will be up shortly, but until then, I wanted to post the products that I really loved in December.
Avon Nutra Effects Restorative Cleansing Milk
One of those morning cleansers or last cleanse that I just loved. It's like a milky white texture, but it's not too liquid. I love it, because it has a cream like feeling to it and it doesn't leave your skin squeaky clean. It's perfect for colder months or for those with sensitive skin that need some moisture layer on top. It has a very mild scent to it.
L'Oreal Pure Clay Glow Mask
With holiday season comes a lot of eating. My skin tends to react to all of this and I have had a lot of breakouts. That is when I resorted to this mask. I love the fact that it spreads easily and dries to a serious clay finish. It feels like it sucks out all impurities from the skin. To me the scent is somewhat herbal and pleasant. I really liked it.
Paula's Choice Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum
This is a tester and I've been loving it this month, because my skin got dry, especially around my moth. There was some serious flaking going on. This has transparent very thick gel consistency and it's really moisturizing to the point of being greasy. I loved it as a very hydrating and heavy serum under my usual creams. Unfortunately, I already ran out of it.
Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation 51 Light Vanilla
I usually use this product in winter season, because it's really moisturizing and it can get a bit greasy looking. But it's perfect for dry skin, because it doesn't emphasize dry patches. I also love the fact that it has a strong yellow undertone. I mix it with my other BB creams and foundations to make them slightly more yellow toned.
Yet another winter hero that makes your skin look less powdery and more glowy. I usually use this to set makeup and get rid of powdery look. I also feel like this gives a very natural finish to the skin. It's not for summer, because it makes my skin greasy then, but for now, it's perfect.
Zoeva Caramel Malange
This and Colourpop eyeshadows is all I've been wearing this whole month. If you're a warm toned lover, you would love this. It has a lot of medium and light toned warm matte shades, some lovely shimmery almost metallic ones and one darker plum to create a bit of a smokier look. This is definitely one of my new favorites. Quality is amazing as always and pigmentation is great.
Colourpop Supershock Shadow Game Face and Moonwalk
I'll have a detailed review of these up soon. Texture is mind-boggling. It's like a mousse mixed with cream, but they dry down to a powder finish. Game Face is the perfect shade for all of you that love copper warm rich shades and Moonwalk is a mix of orange, green and gold and it looks stunning on its own or applied on top of other shades.
Whenever I want something pinkier, but still in an apricot family, I go for this. It's one of those shades that just goes with everything. Formula has lovely satin finish and it lasts well on my skin. It's also really light, so perfect for fair skin tones
If I want something peachier, then I go for this. It's so light and perfect for my winter skin tone. It has a bit of shimmer to it, but all in all, looks really natural on the skin. It's probably one of my favorite blush shades ever.
Perfect red for all those Christmas and holiday makeup looks. I just adore the formula of this. It's probably one of the most comfortable formulas. The finish is creamy and a bit shiny and it wears lovely. Because I tend to have really dry lips in the winter, I love creamier and comfortable lipsticks and this one is a winner.
This is my kind of perfect nude shade. It's very peachy, but almost a bit brownish. I absolutely adore it with rich warm eyeshadow shades. It's nude, but a bit more colorful than a boring beige.
