December Favourites

Happy New Year's Eve everyone! I cannot believe how fast 2012 has flown by, it's crazy. I'm excited for 2013 and everything that comes with a new year!

I'll be doing a 2012 Favourites, but today I'll share my December Favourites! I had an extremely busy month of December, with final uni exams, and horribly long retail shifts. I'm really looking forward to have a few days off this week from both school and work, to just relax and enjoy my time off :)

Here's what I've been loving this month!



NARS Albatross Highlighter - I've been loving this gorgeous golden highlighter this past month. I think this pairs perfectly with NARS' Lustre blush, which I've also been wearing a lot recently. 

Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Polish in Sugar* - This is such a beautiful lip gloss, it's perfect for Fall/Winter. I've really fallen in love with these Buxom glosses, they have great pigmentation, aren't sticky, and feel smooth on the lips. 

Fresh Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment* - I quite like the formula of this lip balm, it's moisturizing and smells great. I've been reaching for this when I can't decide on a lip colour. 

Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me - This has been my go-to lip colour for the past 2 weeks. I love this formula, and it actually has great pigmentation!


Bath & Body Works Twisted Peppermint Body Lotion - This is such a festive scent, I've been reaching for it all month long! I love this formula from BBW, and I love trying out new scents. 

Dove Refresh + Care Invigorating Dry Shampoo - This is one of my favourite drug store finds! I use this on second day hair, and it really does help reduce oils and it doesn't make my hair look white.

Maybelline Colossal Volum Cat Eyes Mascara - I like using this mascara on both my top and bottom lashes. I think that this creates a really pretty, natural look with a bit of flare. 

ROC Instant Facial Smoother - I've been using this everyday before applying my foundation. I find that it creates a smooth canvas, and brightens up my complexion. 


OPI I Saw... U Saw... We Saw... Warsaw* (reviewed here) - I love this deep navy blue polish from OPI's upcoming Euro Centrale Collection! It's just beautiful, and the formula is excellent. 

Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation in Ivory - I received this sample from Sephora, and I've just been loving it this month. I find that this foundation provides good coverage, illuminates my face, and looks natural. I will definitely be purchasing the full size bottle!

Sebastian Re-Shaper Hair Spray - I've been using this hair-spray when I just want a light, natural hold in my hair. This doesn't make my hair crunchy at all, and it tames the frizz and fly aways. 

So those are the products that I've been loving in December! I will be posting my 2012 Favourites soon, so keep your eyes out for that :) Leave me a comment below letting me know if we share any favourites, and what products you've been reaching for this past month! :)


  1. I really love that dove dry shampoo too! I can hardly ever find it which bums me out!

  2. Great post!!! :D I hope that you have a wonderful new year! :D

    1. Thanks Ash! Happy New Year to you as well! :)

  3. Wonderful favourites! Happy New Year!

  4. Great faves! I'm adding that Dove dry shampoo to my shopping list, had no idea they had one. Happy new year!

    1. Keep an eye out for it! It's really great :)

  5. I feel like trying Dove's dry shampoo but I'm scared that it won't work on my oily hair :( I wish I could wash my hair every 2 days instead of everyday! :(

    1. I found it for only $4, so it's not a huge investment! I find that it works best if I spray it on, leave it for a minute or two, and then brush it out :)

  6. Twisted Peppermint is one of my favorite B&BW candles but I could never find the lotion at any of my stores. I bet it's amazing!

    Jayme @ Her Late Night Cravings

    1. I absolutely love it! Especially in the Winter months :)
