December 2015 Favourites!

Happy Sunday friends! Today I'm back with another monthly favourites post - I'm trying to make these a regular thing again! I'll be sharing my five favourite products from the past month, and trust me, you'll want to add these into your beauty collection too!


First up is my favourite polish from December - and possibly from all of 2015! OPI's Give Me Space* from the new Starlight Collection. This polish is just simply gorgeous - and it totally reminds me of something that I used to love about OPI's DS/Designer Series line. That fully packed shimmer, smooth finish, and incredibly high shine. It's been a little while since I've been this blown away by a polish from OPI! This is one of those polishes that completely captures your attention, and you can't help but just stare at your nails throughout the day!

I've sort of rediscovered two products this month - Caudalie's famous Beauty Elixir*, and The Body Shop's Smoky Poppy Poppy Seed Body Scrub*. The Beauty Elixir has several uses, including a toner, serum, and a make up setting spray, I've been using this spray as a toner after I've cleansed my face, and before applying my serum and moisturizer. I use three sprays, one on my left, right, and centre of my face. The Body Shop's Smoky Poppy Poppy Seed Body Scrub has  a healthy amount of oils in the formula, so your skin is left feeling really smooth from the poppy seed exfoliation, and super moisturized from the oils. Love!

I've found a new amazing foundation this past month from Too Faced! Their new Born This Way Foundation* offers full coverage with an oil-free formula. I've been wearing the shade Ivory which is a pretty good match for my pale Winter skin. And finally, my last favourite has been a beautiful everyday blush from Marc Jacobs! Their Shameless Bold Blush in Reckless* is not actually that bold at all. Instead, this rosy pink works well for any occasion that you could think of, and I've been absolutely obsessed with it for the past few weeks!

  3. This looks like a favourites set I could have put together: Caudalie is my skincare line, Smokey Poppy body scrub was pretty great (I just finished mine!) and ever since I added Born This Way to my foundation rotation I haven't been able to put it down :)
