December Beauty Favourites :)

This month has been so busy with finishing essays at University to get ready for christmas it seems to have gone so fast! Anyways here's some of my favourites in December, i've decided not to include some of my christmas presents because I haven't had enough time to try them out but there will be some posts on those later.
This is a great everyday nuetrals palette, there's a good amount of matte shades as well as some shimmers. I love it and I have been doing a lot of go to everyday looks with it. All the shades are well pigmented which you don't always see in a drugstore product.  
This has been a rediscovered love, it is a great under eye concealer because it covers my dark circles and helps to make me look a lot more awake in the morning which is definitely needed most days! I've had this for a while now and it seems to be lasting a long time. The only problem is that the lid can get a bit messy because it's a brush applicator.
This has been my go to blush for pretty much everyday this month, it's a lovely deep raspberry colour with slight gold shimmers in it which help to give a nice glow to the skin. I love ELF blushes from the studio line and this colour is perfect for winter time. 
FAB Face Cleanser - £13.00 (Sample size shown)
I got this cleanser in this months Glossybox and have been using it everyday since. It's a great nuetral cleanser because it has no harsh chemicals in it, so great for sensitve skin. I've like this so much that have already ordered a full size of it. 
I rely on this most days, if i'm in a rush in the morning i'm always grabbing this! I've tried lots of dry shampoo's and this has to be the best and one of the cheapest. It doesn't leave my roots looking white instead my hair just looks clean and fresh. The Tropical scent is my favourite because it smells just like coconuts.
I use this eveytime time I wash my hair. I put a pump of it through the ends of my hair after washing when it's damp and it really helps to make the colour brighter and my hair look a lot healthier. Such a good product and it lasts a long time becuase you don't need a lot.
This has been my everyday foundation this month, I find it gives a really natural finish. It covers the acne scars I have which is not always this case with some foundation. It also lasts really well throughout the day and doesn't go patchy or look cacky.
I did a review on this the other week which you can see here. I love Lush products and this mask has definitely helped improved my skin and it smells amazing. Win win!
I don't normally like foundation brushes but this one is so different from the others I have tried. There's lots of bristles and they are tappered making it really easy to apply my foundation. It helps to give me a real natural finish. It also washes really well and doesn't shed at all.
NYC Kohl Brow/Eyeliner Pencil in 927 'Taupe' - £1.59
I've mainly been using this for filling in my eyebrows and the colour matches perfectly to give a natural look. It is also a great light brown eyeliner again perect for a natural look. This is also nearly twice the size of a normal eyeliner and is such a good price.

So there's my Beauty Favourites for this month, i've definitely been enjoying having a few days off over christmas it was definitely needed!
