December Makeup

I have actually bought quite a few new products this month so I thought I would share them with you. I absolutely love buying new makeup and I often have to hold myself back when I was YouTube videos or read blog posts about new makeup. Here are some of the items that I have purchased or have been gifted this month.


For those who know me, you’ll know that Benefit is one of my favourite makeup brands. Benefit is one of the first higher end brands that I ever tried and is probably the brand that made me fall in love with makeup. I always get my eyebrows waxed and tinted at the Benefit Brow Bar so why would I buy my eyebrow products from anywhere else? I have tried the majority of the Brow collection by Benefit but I keep going back to the Goof Proof Brow Pencil in shade 3 as I know that it works for me and always looks great. I love that the pencil is shaped like a raindrop so you can get a precise arch yet still get the colour pay off.


House of Fraser had 20% off a couple of weeks ago so I took advantage and also got the Dandelion Twinkle powder highlighter. I say I took advantage, my dad actually bought this for me (thanks, dad). I have wanted to try this since it came out so I was so excited to try it. I love using this every day as it is pretty subtle but you still have a noticeable glow on your cheeks. I love pairing this with the Dandelion blush from Benefit for a really glowing complexion.


As we were drawing closer to Christmas, I really wanted a nice dark lipstick to get me into the festive spirit. I had a browse around Superdrug and came across the L’Oreal Color Riche lipsticks. I am a huge fan of L’Oreal, including their lipsticks so when I saw their matte pigmented lipsticks, I had to try one. I got the shade 430 and this lipstick lasts ALL DAY. I was so shocked but in the best possible way because lipsticks that are darker shades tend to rub off easily but not this one. I also love how this lipstick doesn’t feel too drying so you can wear it all day without feeling like your lips are dying.


For those who regularly read my blog or follow me on Instagram, you will have seen that I recently bought the YSL Tatouage Couture lipstick and reviewed it last week. I am a huge fan of this lipstick, especially for everyday wear. I will admit that this was an expensive purchase and I wouldn’t usually spend that much on a lipstick but it’s nice to have that special item in your makeup bag. Feel free to check out my review for more information on this lipstick.


Have you purchased any new makeup this month?

  1. I love the Hoola bronzer by Benefit, it’s awesome! Girl I can’t stop buying makeup, it’s a terrible but awesome addiction, lol!


  2. How goof proof is that brow pencil? I sadly inherited from my father thinning eyebrows, and it is horrible the older i get the less there are:-( BUt everytime I try and do my eyebrows it tends to look like I gave my kids a market…lol

    1. Oh no, well goof proof is really good as it doesn’t transfer onto your skin so you don’t end up with big block eyebrows. It’s then up to you how light or heavy you want to go in haha


      1. That is great to know, I’ll definitely give this a try, hopefully it works for me as it has work for you.


  3. L’Oreal products are definitely my favorite ones. I have not tried Benefit till now. After reading your review, will love to give it a try.


  4. I am always looking for lipsticks that stay all the long without retouching it every hour or so, I will definitely try the L’Oreal Color Riche lipsticks! Love your make up selection!


  5. The Dandelion Twinkle powder highlighter sounds so good, I would love to know your thoughts and swatches of it. I have not purchased any makeup this month, I had some nice purchases last month including the new Hourglass limited edition holiday palettes. Love your pictures.


  6. These are really lovely products! I am not a huge fan of Benefit but I do like their boxes of powder. I also got a L’oreal lippy back in October! This month, I’ve only got a primer, because my makeup stash is quite big and I don’t really need anything new!
