Honest reviews, regular hauls and all things beauty.

December favourites featuring Charlotte Tilbury, Urban Decay, Kat Von D, MAC, Tarte, youtubers & more!




I hope you have all had a really lovely Christmas break & enjoyed quality time with your friends and family! We had a very relaxing Christmas and have plans for a quiet New Years Eve tonight - nice food, a big fire and TV. I'd love to hear your plans in the comments below! This month's favourites all revolve around make-up, rather than skincare, so let's get started!


I have been using Too Faced Hangover Face Primer all month and loving it! It is similar in texture to Clarins Beauty Flash Balm and it makes my skin look very fresh. It is silicone free and is infused with coconut water, which makes it hydrating. It also soothes the skin and smooths it too, creating the perfect base for foundation. I haven't noticed any increase in wear time when using it but my foundation tends to stay on quite well without breaking down anyway.

Any time that I've worn foundation this month, it has been Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk. This has been a firm favourite for years and it has been my go-to this past month because I know that it will stay flawless for hours on end - perfect for long Christmas days! To enhance the luminosity of my base, I have really loved using Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist. I find that this makes everything look softer and fresher when I use this mist as a finishing spray. I have really loved this being part of my routine.

For blush, I've been constantly reaching for my Tarte Bling It On Palette - I absolutely love these blushes and they last for such a long time on the cheeks. I've also been loving my Kat Von D Shade & Light Contour Palette - the powders are so creamy and easy to blend. They are an absolute dream to use! For highlight, I've worn Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow non-stop. I just love the glow I achieve with this - it makes me look a but healthier & let's face it - I could do with all the help I can get in that department!

On my eyes, I have been wearing either Urban Decay Moondust eyeshadow in the shade Diamond Dog or Charlotte Tilbury Rock Chick quad. Diamond Dog is a medium brown with glitter and a hint of grey. Rock Chick has grey, taupe, brown toned shadows with a nice glittery shadow to make the eyes pop. I loved pairing it with an eyeliner flick and a nude lip.

Speaking of lips, I have loved two lipsticks this month: MAC Ruby Woo and YSL Rouge Volupte #1 Nude Beige. I bought Ruby Woo a few months ago but only got around to wearing it this month, also the lip liner too. It is a beautiful matte red and I find it to be pretty long-lasting. YSL Nude Beige is my favourite lipstick ever, it is the perfect nude lip to wear with any eye look. On my nails, I have been wearing Burberry Military Red non-stop. The perfect Christmas red!

I've really loved watching Vlogmas and so many more youtubers have been doing it this year. I've always loved Fleur De Force's vlogmas and was delighted to see Lily Pebbles doing it again but the one that I loved watching the most this year was Tijan Serena. I've read Tijan's blog for quite a while & enjoyed watching her videos but I think that she really came into her own with Vlogmas because I felt she really showed more of her personality and it was so lovely to see more aspects of her life. She seems like a very fun, down to earth girl and is very close to her family. Check out her channel if you haven't already!
