December favorites.

I’m usually not the type to buy different things every month as I’d rather stick to the products I love and buy only after thinking it through. Therefore it might be difficult for me to offer a list of favorites every month. But this is Christmas and I happen to have a few discoveries to share with you.

As it is winter, I must say my very first favorite is my Dermophil hands cream, indian fomule, which works absolutely great, especially on my very broken skin. You can buy it at Di in Belgium.

Then comes this beauty that was on my december wishlist and that I finally got (I didn’t wait very long), the O.P.I Matte Top Coat that I already applied on my nude Essie “spin the bottle”. It looks perfect and I can’t even describe, I’ve been waiting for such a clean discreet look for so long. I will probably post a review very soon. You can buy it at Planet Parfum for 15€.

This also comes from Planet Parfum and I also got it for Christmas, the Helena Rubinstein mascara Lash Queen Sexy Blacks. I’ve been loving this mascara for a few years already and I always seem to go back to it but it just costs too much (30€) so I kind of always wait for Christmas. Anyway, I’m going to start using it very soon but I might just use it on special occasions. After all, Miss Manga does the job very well too.

Now comes my all-time favorite that happened to serve a lot in the christmas-blocus time. I use it all the time but in this period where I stay home a sometimes go out just for an hour or so, I like to skip foundation and go straight to the concealer. The Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer does a great job by himself (whit a touch of my Maybelline pressed powder to help). This product has a special place in my heart and on this list because I just found out Maybelline literally stopped making it (according to a seller from Di) which is like the dumbest decision ever. Anyway, I love this and I hope they make it again.

On my favorite list also, two eyeshadows Phyto-Ombres Eclat from Sisley that I found in my mom’s huge collection of middly used make up. I don’t know when they were made. All that counts is that they work amazingly. One is called Quartz (a greyish purple that looks good on the outer lid, on the upper lid and on the whole moving lid too. It’s a nice shadow that still looks natural.

The second one is called Vanilla. It’s a clear beige color, clearer than femme-fi from M.A.C’s stroke of midnight warm palette. It’s very little shimmery. This color gives you a natural look and lights your eyes. I can use both of these colors to perform somewhat of a smokey eye that is hard to mess up. Of course, I discovered the price of those products (around 25€ a color) and I don’t think them again once it runs out. They’re used, but I think there is still enough for a while.

This is all for now but I hope there will be more favorite lists in the following month. Oh and you’ll notice that all the pictures are taken with my very new Nikon D3200 which I love! I wish you a happy new year and don’t forget to mention your own December favorites in the comments.
