It's time to share my December Favorites. The last monthly favorites of this year! I am thinking to do a "Favorite Products of 2015" or "Most Used Products of 2015". Same concept just different titles. Let me know in the comments if you'd be interested in that! As of now, let's start with the favorites of this month.
Now December for me was full of weddings in family and friends. Therefore I got to use a lot of makeup products and these products were used in all of the makeup looks I created on me and some of them on a Mehendi Bride I did. I'll share the look I did for the Mehendi Bride on my social media in detail so keep a look out for that.
1. Wet n Wild Fergie Shimmer Palette - Hollywood Boulevard:
This purchase was inspired by the beautiful Maliha Asif from (on snapchat) and I'm so glad I got it!! I have been using it ever since it reached me. The glow it gives is extremely beautiful! A healthy glowy sheen without the glitter or sparkle or any fall out. Also the glow is buildable so you can really really intensify it! I absolutely love this gorgeous highlight and even traveled with it although I didn't need to touch up at all!
2. The Balm Cosmetics - Hot Mama:
Although I feel this is an appropriate color for Summer but I couldn't stop using it nevertheless. It gives such a healthy color and sheen to my cheeks. I also layered it under other blushers for more night time looks but for day time I used it alone. As it gives both color and glow I could skip the highlighter. I don't really like to highlight much in day time although I can get away with it in Winters without looking oily. So this blush has been the most used blush this month as it gave a beautiful peachy color and sheen to my cheeks! I traveled with this one too although I didn't need to touch up.
3. Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation- Vanilla 52:
Okay so, I have been using the Bourjois 123 Perfect Foundation ever since I started using foundation and it has been perfect for my combination skin that leans to slightly oily in Summer but in Winters it tends to be dry so I had to get a foundation with a Satin Finish, if not dewy. Healthy Mix has been my first choice and it has been working beautifully for me!! It gives such a healthy satiny finish that lasts for a long long time on my face!! I'm not getting any other foundation now! I'm in love with this product!!
4. L'oreal Paris Telescopic Mascara - Carbon Black:
Oh my Gosh!! I finally know what the hype is about and it's real!! The hype behind this mascara is real!! It gives me the most amazing, wispy and long lashes!! I was a bit skeptical about the wand first but it's perfect to coat each lash from the bottom to the top! I am in love with this Mascara and been using it through out this month!
5. Color Studio Professional - Hypno Black Eye Marker:
This is the first eye liner marker/pen I have used. Although I still am yet to perfect a winged eye liner with this but this is so much more convenient and travel friendly then my Cake Eyeliners where I have to keep a separate brush and need to wet it. Whereas with this, I only have to take off the cap and *swish swish* and I'm done! Also it's very pigmented and glides on smoothly so it has been the only eye liner that I used through out December.
6. e.l.f Poreless Face Primer:
This is my first primer that I have used. I didn't use any face primer before December but with all the weddings, I decided to invest in one and on Kiran Khan's recommendation I got this and boy I'm so glad I did! Although I don't have any Pore issues but I felt it made the area around my nose and on my nose quite smooth. Also my makeup lasted a longer time than when I don't use a primer and my foundation blends so smoothly on top of it! I also used it on the bride.
7. Skindinavia - Makeup Finishing Spray - Oil Control:
This has been my best friend through out December! It kept my makeup intact all through the event, the eating, the dancing everything! My makeup stayed fresh until it was time to wash it off! I am in love LOVE with this setting spray and don't think I'll be trying any other brand. This has win my heart!!
