Monthly Favourites

My favourite products for December are...

Nars Laguna Bronzer
My face is looking quite pale at the moment and so my Nars Laguna bronzer has made a big difference. I use it under my cheek bones to contour my face, making them more defined. I then use a big brush to sweep it all over my face to create a healthy glow and colour. It lasts all day and is a product that I will repurchase and repurchase.

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick
I love this highlighter. It's subtle but effective and so pretty; it feels like a little treat to put on. I've been loving it a lot this month because it softens my face after I've applied bronzer and blusher, making it look more naturally blended. 

MAC Studio Fix Powder
As I've had a lot of long-days-into-nights this month with Christmas parties, this little powder compact has been brilliant for touch ups during the day. It's a good level of coverage so stops my eyes looking tired, my spots from being noticeable and my makeup looking fresh. 

Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara
This is my second sample size Sumptuous Extreme mascara and I've slowly fallen in love with it. It makes my lashes look very long and full, it's a firm rival for Benefit's They're Real! in my book.

Urban Decay Naked Palette
This palette has been used a lot by me this month. Mainly due to the convenience of having so many gorgeous shades in one palette, but also because the shades are quite metallic/ shimmery so have been perfect for all those parties. 

Lush Bubblegum Scrub
The cold weather has been brutal to my lips this month, making them very chapped and sore. This lip scrub has been a little life saver, getting rid of the chapped skin so that my lipsticks and glosses go on smoothly. 

Clarins Instant Lip Perfector
As I mentioned, my lips have been very chapped and dry recently, and so this Clarins Lip Perfector has been great at keeping my lips moisturised while simultaneously providing a cute pink colour. 

REN Clarifying Toner and REN ClearCalm3 Night Serum
Over the last two months I've had a complete skincare overhaul (post to follow soon about this). I've got rid of any harsh products that I was using to get rid of my spots as I was in a viscous circle of them irritating my skin and making the spots worse. Instead, I've switched to natural, gentle products and my skin is sooo much better! This REN toner and night serum have been great, and really made a difference in clearing up my skin. 

Clarins Gentle Peeling Brightening Mask 
Finally, this face mask is brilliant. It clears up all my blackheads and really brightens up my whole face. I've loved using it once or twice a week this month.

What do you think of these products? What are your favourites?
