December 2014 Beauty Favorites!


Hello! The end of the month is here once again, and we’re all set to roll into the new year, at least I am. I have a random batch of favorites this month. With the holidays happening and just plain old having fun, I gravitated toward easy and reliable items this month, plus had fun with newer goodies and old favorites.


Sephora Signature Clear Cosmetic Bag– I’ve been really into clear bags lately, and I love how huge this one is. I like being able to see where everything is so I can just grab it. It holds a large Z-palette plus more (everything in the first photo is in the bag), so you can see how large it is.

Stila Collage of Color Lip & Cheek palette– I shopped my stash and pulled this out because I just haven’t been using it enough for how much I love it. Swatches here.

Bath & Body Works Vanilla Bean Noel lotion– Everyone loves this scent at this time of year, am I right? ๐Ÿ™‚ I like how thick and moisturizing this is, and the scent is sooo delicious!


Starlooks Brow Kit – This was the October Starlooks Starbox. I meant to write a review of it once I had worn it, and time got away from me. I pulled this out and like it more than my first impression. ๐Ÿ™‚

Yves Rocher Pure Calmille facial wipes– These were a gift from a friend and I can see why she loves them. I’m going to be so sad when I finish them! Canada has Yves Rocher, right? Might have to seek these out the next time I’m in Montreal.


Jennifer Aniston “J” perfume– I LOVE this perfume. Love!! It has better staying power on me than her first scent, and it is still beachy, but a little creamier.

Bobbi Brown eyelash curler- I decided to pick this up during Black Friday/Cyber Monday time, and I’m so glad that I did. My lashes rarely stay curled during the day, but something about this curler helps them stay up a little more than my other eyelash curler. I also love the shape of it, as it reaches all of my lashes.

Laura Mercier Creme de Pistache hand cream– Mmm…this smells divine, like pistachio pudding. It is moisturizing and not too thick or greasy.

Starlooks Black Hole gel eyeliner– Repeat from last month. ๐Ÿ™‚


Coastal Scents Hot Pots– The shades with the X are the ones I used the most, which include Sun Worshipper, Reef Sand, Chamois Nude, Tuscany, Raspberry Tart, Peach Bronze, and Coconut Husk. I’m planning a bigger post on these hot pots. Let’s just say I am both happy and surprised with the quality. ๐Ÿ™‚


I have three lip favorites this month, all in the same color family for the most part!

Urban Decay Naked Lip Gloss in Nooner– I love how comfortable this lip gloss is, and I love it layered with the next item…

Charlotte Tilbury Lip Liner in Pillow Talk– I didn’t go crazy over the CT release in the states, but I did pick up this and the pencil sharpener. I am planning on going into more depth with this one later.

Bite Beauty Sable pencil– This is from the Bite mini set. You just can’t go wrong with a peachy color like this!

PHEW! That’s it! ๐Ÿ™‚ What were your favorites this month?
