DECEMBER FAVOURITES | CHARLOTTE TILBURY, NYX, MILANI, THE BODY SHOP AND FORMULA X

Charlotte Tilbury, The Body Shop, NYX, Milani

On my word, how is 2014 over? I can't believe how fast the year has flown by and I am excited to start 2015. 

December was a hectic month, while most people are winding down, my work starts winding up and along with that comes events, parties and festive outings.  My December favourites have been absolute saviors, particularly when I've had no time to get ready.  

The Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita luxury palette has been a godsend. This compact palette traveled in my handbag throughout the month of December and we become best friends (she calls me darling and I call her sweetie). The four colours are so versatile that it took me from a  day to night look with a swipe of a eyeshadow brush.  The sparkly number on the bottom left looks amazing on the center of the eyelid.  

I've also been adoring my NYX butter gloss in Apple Strudel. Let me tell you, I'm all for a bold lip, but down you're chowing down at dinner parties and business lunches, the last thing you want to worry about is having lipstick all over your face. This lovely little gloss gives the right amount of colour, feels fantastic on the lips and more importantly fades subtly. 

I'm late to the bandwagon on this one, but Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso is just.... I have no words. It's a perfect mix between a blush and a highlighter and reminds me so much of a more affordable version of the Hourglass Ambient Lightening Blushes, which we all know I love!

I adore wearing festive colours on my nails during December, and A+ from Formula X has been the perfect raspberry red. I've raved about these nail polishes on countless occasions but I still can't get over how fast they dry, how long they last and how shiny they are.

And last, but certainly not least, the Body Shop's Vitamin C Energising Face Spritz feels like heaven on the skin particularly when dehydrated. This little bottle has also been traveling with me all month long and I use it like a Mac Fix Plus for a pick me up. 

What have been your some of your December favourites? x

  1. I love Luminoso, it's such a gorgeous color. I use it almost all the time. I have to say I agree with the butter glosses, they're just the right amount of color without having to worry about smearing lipstick all over your face. xx

  4. The Charlotte Tilbury palette has been on my wishlist for too long! I really love it, I even swatched it in a store in Dublin and I stood there like a fool, daydreaming about how wonderful it was. LOL.

    I also would love to try some Milani products, and Luminoso is definitely high on the list. The Bella Shadows and the lipsticks seem to be very nice as well!
