I haven’t posted on here in what feels like so long. I guess I’ve just been busy leading up to christmas, and I’ve also just had some stuff going on in my personal life, so I haven’t even really thought about my little blog. Before the year ended though, I wanted to put together my december favourites.
I only have a couple of things I wanted to write about; a few beauty bits, and one piece of clothing. All three of the makeup items I’m including were part of my sephora black friday order, so I’ve had them for around a month and I’ve used at LEAST one of these every day since they arrived.
I guess I’ll start with my base first, which has been it cosmetics your skin but better cc+ colour correcting full coverage cream. A stupidly long name, but it’s also a stupidly good cc cream. I’m not really someone that’s into cc or bb creams usually, but I’d heard that this one actually had some coverage to it so I thought I’d give it a shot. This stuff is amazing. I’m definitely converted to it. The coverage is insane for a cc cream, I’d say it’s a medium coverage, and it just wears beautifully on the skin. I was especially impressed with how well it wears on my combination, sometimes kinda oily, skin.
Two other things I got in sephoras black friday sale were from Fenty Beauty, one of them being the absolutely insane killawatt freestyle highlighter duo in lightning dust/ fire crystal. For the longest time I’ve spoken about the elf baked highlighter and how it’s my favourite, but that has 100% been replaced by this one. Both of the highlights in this duo are absolutely gorgeous, lightning dust is more on the natural side but still packs a punch. The texture of these is so lovely, it seems to just melt into the skin instead of looking as though it’s just sitting on top, which is something that I really hate about certain highlighters. If anyone reading this is looking to get a new highlight or want to pick up something from Fenty, then this is the one.
My other favourite from Fenty is the gloss bomb in fenty glow. I’ve been super into glossy lips for the last couple of months, and this is one of my favourites that I’ve tried so far. The colour is so perfect, it’s supposedly a universal nude that will look good on everyone, which I can definitely see being true. On the whole, it’s just a really good gloss, and I’ve been wearing it pretty much every single day since I got it. I’ve also received heaps of compliments from people when I’ve been wearing it, which is always a good sign.
I’m one of those people who really doesn’t care for their hair very well, but I’ve been using the scott cornwall colour restore anti-yellow toner for the past few months and it has made my hair feel so soft and I feel like it’s been looking pretty good too. I don’t know much about hair, and honestly, it’s not something I take a lot of care with, but I’ve been using this as a conditioner about every other time I wash my hair, and more than anything else it just makes my hair feel so lovely.
The last favourite that I wanted to talk about this month is a dress that I got from temt, which is somewhere that I never shop, and somewhere that really never has anything that I really like, except for this dress. Everything in there is super cheap, so this dress only set me back $20. The quality of it isn’t great, but it’s not an awful dress either. It doesn’t feel as if it cost me more than $20, but I think it looks as though it cost more.
I’ve been really into the whole cute little tea dress look, and this is one of my favourites. It’s just one of those super easy dresses to just throw on during summer, that look super cute and go with pretty much whatever you want.
