I can’t believe we’re already a week into December! It wouldn’t be the beginning of the month without a favorites post. I ran out of time to film a video, but still wanted to talk about my favorites from this past month! I figured I’d keep it short, sweet, and to the point for you. I’ve got some awesome products to talk about, so let’s get right to it!
Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Concealer // I was pretty hesitant to buy this concealer because I love the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer so much. I keep seeing good reviews on it, so I decided to pick it up. Let me tell you, I have not used a different concealer for highlighting the past month and a half, and I am not even exaggerating. It has amazing coverage, and doesn’t crease on me. I find it to be very similar to the Fit Me. In my opinion, Maybelline makes the best drugstore concealers, and this one is no exception!
Butter London Shadow Clutch Palette in ‘Natural Charm’ // Butter London sent me this gorgeous palette in September and I have been playing with it on and off ever since. I did take it with me when we traveled to New England and it really had everything I needed to create multiple eye looks. Since it was a family trip, I kept my makeup fairly simple but never felt like I needed anything else. The shadows are so pigmented, buttery, and blend like a dream! I love how it has a neutral feel to it, but with a little variation with the olive green and the peach tones. I also like how they also sell Shadow Clutch Duos that you can interchange with the shadows in the palette. I do have Fancy Flutter and Moody Blues, and absolutely adore those shades as well.
Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara // You guys know I am a die hard drugstore mascara fan. I’ve talked about it time and time again. When I got this mascara I wrote it off as another overpriced mascara. Um, eating my words. Why did I wait a few weeks to actually try it?! It’s incredible! It gives volume, length and curl. I hate that I love it so much. If you are looking into trying a new mascara, definitely give this one a look.
Rimmel Provocalips in ‘Kiss Fatal’ // If you are itching to get on board with the liquid lipstick trend, but not sure where to start, I highly recommend you pick up one of these Rimmel Provocalips. They’re dual ended with some sort of shine thing on the other end, but I don’t use that because I want it to look matte. These lip colors do not budge! I bought the darkest one in “Kiss Fatal” and adore it. It’s a really dark mauve with a hint of berry. I’m wearing it in this Instagram photo, for reference.
Yes to Carrots Nourishing Daily Cream Facial Cleanser // I have never been one to really love a cream cleanser. I have always felt they don’t get my skin clean enough. Lately, though, I’ve felt that some foaming cleansers are a little too harsh for me. Maybe it’s because I’m aging? I love this Yes To Carrots cleanser because it’s very hydrating and gentle, and I feel like it does a great job of cleansing.
Number 4 Super Comb Prep & Protect // My friend, Anne, sent this to me and I am loving it! It is a leave-in product before blow drying, and I feel like it’s one of those “do everything” products. It’s a detangler, smoother, and heat protectant. I love the way it makes my hair feel!
What are you loving lately? Of course I need to know!
