Well hello to you my reader chums! With the festive period of December over and the start of 2016 begun, its time to share with you my favourites over the past few weeks. There hasn't been a crazy amount of products I've been loving, however these items shown below are ones I'm currently obsessing over.
Here's all the favourites:
Aussie 3 minute miracle - My first favourite of December is this Aussie, haircare treatment. I don't usually mention hair products mainly because I'm not one to change up my routine, however I've thoroughly been enjoying this and wanted to share my new found obsession with you. I picked it up as it was on offer in Superdrug about a month or so ago as I was looking for something to deeply condition my hair. I use this treatment on my hair after every wash and I'm rather shocked how much of a change its made to the condition of my hair. Since using it, I've found my hair to feel much healthier, smoother and the overall look vastly improved. I apply this after I've shampooed, conditioned and then leave it for the given 3 minutes to works its magic. The product isn't too thick, or thin, yet it manages to coat the hair and does exactly what it says, a '3 minute miracle'
FleurdeForce's 'Cosmic Bronze' palette - Another favourite of mine has to be this gorgeous eye shadow palette by FleurdeForce. Made up of 4 beautiful bronze toned shades, the quad is perfect for everyday use and those who adore a neutral eye like me. When swatched and applied, the colours are incredibly pigmented, blend well and last. I'd say the quality is nearing the high end mark and for £8.99 it's an absolute bargain. With the size it comes in it's also great for travelling and as you have 4 easy colours to use, you can easily create many different looks. I recently did a review on this palette if you'd like a more in depth look with swatches and the shadows on, read more here.
Mac's 'Russian Red' lipstick- As it was the festive season, December is the time to whip out red lipstick. The one in particular I've been reaching for is my holy grail, Mac's 'Russian Red'. I genuinely love this lipstick. Not only is the lasting power endless, the red is truly rich and paired with a golden eye looks flawless. Even though it's a matte shade, I don't find it to be drying, only if worn for the entire day without any re-application. It's certainly my number one red and if you love darker lipsticks as much as me, it's definitely one to try out!
Mac's 'Faux' lipstick - Another lip favourite the past month has been a nude Mac lipstick. On the days I wanted to wear a more toned down makeup look or not rock a bright lip, I opted for the stunning, Mac 'Faux'. This beauty is a satin finish and very similar to Mac's 'Brave', yet is a slightly more duskier pink and peach toned shade. I would describe it as your lips but better, adding an oomph to your natural lip colour. Due to the finish it's not as lasting as a matte shade, however really moisturising, looking fabulous for an everyday look. I love also how as the shade is rather subtle you don't need to be as precise like when applying a dark lip. I definitely think I'll be reaching for this more and more in the next few months - a complete stunner!
