December 2020 - Monthly Favourites!

Here were the top 5 things I was loving in December:

December 2020 - Monthly Favourites!
I purchased everything in this post - this post contains affiliate links

Surprisingly heavy on the makeup department despite not wearing much - I still used some really great products this month! 

And, the one body/hair product that I was loving this month was (also sorry for the weird insert here - I forgot a close up picture of this one!):

The Body Shop Coconut And Yuzu Hair & Body Mist ~ $18.00 CAN. Get a refreshing and uplifting burst of fragrance with our superfood-inspired Hair & Body Mists. Pick Coconut & Yuzu for a fresh, tropical scent to make you feel like you’re on holiday. 

This is such a delicious scent and I love that it is for hair and body - this is giving me tropical vibes, that isn't just straight coconut, it's also a little floral and fresh smelling! I have been using it every day since I got it! 

December 2020 - Monthly Favourites!

e.l.f. cosmetics Bite Size Face Duos in Spiced Apple ~ $3.00 US. Get on-the-go cheeky glow with these highlighter, bronzer and blush powder duos. Each palette features complimentary shades that are highly pigmented and versatile for every skin tone.

I was super impressed with the new products that I tried from e.l.f. recently - after putting this in my Monthly Makeup Basket for December, I had to include it in my Favourites. These are just so handy to use and adorable, plus the formula is really good - especially the blush! It's a gorgeous colour - the highlighter is almost too dark for me in this duo, but it just gives a more natural vibes and these pair really well together and the blush lasts all day! 

Milk Makeup High Volumizing Mascara ~ sample size shown (full size is $32.00 CAN). A high-volume mascara formulated with heart-shaped fibers, conditioning hemp-derived cannabis seed oil, and pure pigments for an intense black finish.

I think a lot of the mascaras I've been trying lately have not been living up to their claims, and this one finally did! It is very volumizing and looks fantastic on my lashes - it makes them full and dark and keeps my lashes full and thick all day! I think it may smudge a tiny bit after a really long day, but I'm pretty picky about that and I didn't mind after the end because it looked so nice on the lashes! 

December 2020 - Monthly Favourites!

Bite Beauty Power Move Creamy Matte Lip Crayon in Negroni ~ kit size shown here (full size is $34.00 CAN). A comfortable, matte lip crayon for creamy, bold color that can keep up with you and a precise, slim design for no-stress application.

I picked this up as part of a holiday set, because I was really curious about the formula - I'm not going to lie, the idea of a creamy matte freaks me out. I'm always worried with a bright cream formula that I'm going to have red lipstick smeared all over my face, and that did not happen! This stayed in place through eating and drinking (a little transfer to a glass but not smeared everywhere), but also stayed really creamy and comfortable to wear. What a fantastic formula and this colour is stunning - you can see it on me here

ColourPop Lux Lip Oil in Blossom Out ~ $8.00 US. Get a sheer kiss of colour with this nourishing lip oil packed with antioxidant rich Chamomile & Calendula oils.

This colour is described as "soft rose gold with gold and silver pearl" and it's a really nice formula! I love a lip oil and this one isn't too oily that it's too slick - it's perfectly comfortable to wear and feels super great on the lips. I love that this one is a little tinted with shine in it and it's super pretty on the lips! It's not a super long lasting formula, but easy to wear and reapply and leaves you lips super soft!
