December Favourites

Thursday, 31 December 2015

December favourites, the body shop, max factor golden rose, accessorize

It's that time of the month again when I round up my favourites from the last few weeks!

Essence the gel polish in wild white ways //  I had been looking for a white polish for the longest time and I was very happy when I finally found this. If you read my Christmas nail art post you have already seen this as I used it as a base. It is very opaque even after one coat and only starts to chip after 4 days. The only thing that I don't like is that the formula is quite runny but despite that it doesn't take too long to dry.

Golden Rose lipstick in 124 //  This was more of an impulse buy and I kind of regretted buying it at first since it is so dark and I was not used to that. But I am glad that I did as I now love it and has been my festive lip go to! It is a beautiful dark plum shade with red undertones. Another thing that I love about it is the longevity as it stays put for about 4 or 5 hours and then evenly fades.

The Body Shop Strawberry Body Butter // Recently I have been having some really dry skin and this body butter has been a savior. This product is my all time favourite from The Body Shop and I have been using it for the last few years. I love the strawberry scent and the products leaves my skin hydrated and moisturized. 

Accessorize Gold bar Ear cuff // I was having a little browse at the shop when I saw this and it immediately caught me eye. I really like the design and adds a really nice touch to any look. 

Max Factor colour perfection eyeshadow in 425 Dawn Gold // Throughout the month of December I have been frequently reaching for this duo palette. It consists of two shimmering shades, one gold and the other bronze which I think are very suitable for the festive season and together create a lovely look.

Leather Look Camera Case // This was actually a Christmas present and I don't know if it qualifies as a December favourite but I thought that I would add it anyway. I just love it as it has a vintage feel with the leather looking case and the old looking hardware.

I hope that you liked my last post from 2015 and I actually can't believe that tomorrow will be 2016! 2015 was definitely a great year for my blog as I basically started it last January. I hope that 2016 will be even better and it will continue to grow. Happy New Year everyone!

Thanks for stopping by :)

  60. Such a lovely little camera case! I should really invest in a nicer looking one such as this for my camera, would be so much nicer to carry around! & the Body Shop body butter sounds lovely, I don't think I've ever tried their body butters but I have used their body scrubs & they're so nice! The Body Shops products are always super lovely and smell amazing! Lovely post :-)
