December Favourites

emma and the beauty blog, december favourites

Woah, the end of December was so busy and went by so quickly that I completely forgot about doing my monthly favourites. I woke up in the middle of the night and it hit me "I need to get this post up!" Over the past month, I've been into one particular look - bright lips and glowy skin and the products I've chosen certainly reflect that. So let's get stuck in!

I am not doing a "Best Products of 2015" post, but if I was to this first product would for sure be on the list. It's the Nars Velvet Matte Lipstick in Dragon Girl. Gosh, I wore this so much throughout the year and over Christmas. It was my go-to holiday red. It's really comfortable, really matte and I can't speak highly enough about it.

Another bright matte is the NYX Soft Matte Cream in Prague. I bought this earlier in the month and was super impressed! The colour can only be described as a vampy pink, which is something that you don't usually find. Once again it's really comfortable, really matte and really inexpensive to boot! What's not to love?!

On to the glowy skin givers and an oldie but a goodie is the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl. I've had this for such a long time and I hold it in such high regard. It does dewiness like no other. I tend to slap it on my face before I apply my makeup and bask in the glowy goodness it gives. 

From an old favourite to a new one, the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light is an absolute joy. I'm someone who doesn't like powders because I have dry skin. Yet I need to use one to set my concealer. This for me is the perfect powder. It's light, yet sets my makeup and it gives an amazing luminosity. It's become one of my most prized products. 

Lastly, I thought I'd give another mention to this bad boy mascara. I think I already talked the Catrice Glam Doll Mascara in a past favourites, but I want to talk about it again. This packs a serious lash punch for such an inexpensive product. If you like lengthening, fluttery lashes, I can't recommend it enough. 

Have you tried any of these products? What have you been enjoying over the past month?
