December Favourites...

Hey guys! I thought I would do my first favourites post. Although December has been a really good month and I have bought lots of lovely beauty bargains, a lot of them have been bought towards the end of the month, so I am going to save them for later blogs once I have used them enough to review.

But on with these products!

So my first ones are the Schwarzkoph Super Soft Yoghurt and Red Berries Smoothie Shampoo and Conditioner for coloured hair.

When I am in Leeds, I use my usual Herbal Essances Shampoo and Conditioner, but since I've been home in York for Christmas, I have been using my this of my Mums. It is absolutely DEVINE. My hair has been so soft and lovely and seems to be a lot stronger and seems to be full of moisture, which is much needed for my blonde hair! It really is a pleasure to use, and the impression that I get from my Mum is that it is dead cheap, which is always a good thing!

My next favourite of the month is the Superdrug Cranberry and Pomegranate Body Butter.

This stuff is ah-maze-ing. I love body butter because I love how thick they are and how you feel that your body is being well and truely nurished everytime you put it on. Like a lot of people, I love the Body Shop versions, but I really can't justify spending £12 on them. This superdrug version is so good, I would definitely say it was of the same standard as the body shop version. The smell is like nothing I have smelt before and it lasts all day. I have been using this after showers everyday for just over a month now and my skin is thanking me for it. Even in this horrible skin drying weather, it is so lovely and soft and feels so healthy. I'm not sure on the price, but I would say it was no more than £3 - and I think I bought this as a buy two get one free deal. Big thumbs up. I was bought a few of the Boots body butters for Christmas, so expect a comparison bog soon!
Next on my list is the Urban Decay Naked Palette.

There are so many reviews on this product that I think it now speaks for itself - and with good reason too. This is my number 1 make up product of the moment, and most definitely my favourite eye palette of the whole year. It's such a versatile palette. I have been wearing it none stop, day night, plodding around the house - you name it, there is a look in here for it. I would HIGHLY recommend people buy it before it is discontinued. Go on. You know you want to... :)

Next up is the Me Me Me 'Blush Me!' blusher in pink.

You'll see from previous posts that I am a fan of this blusher, so I couldn't resist popping it into my December favourites. I wear it all the time, and I love it for a really natural day look. I especially love it in this weather, as it gives you those lovely glowing cheeks that you get when you've been out in the cold for hours. It really brightens up the cold days!

I have a couple of Benefit items to pop in. One is the Lemon Aid eye primer and concealer and the other is the It Stick concealer.

Both of these concealers are great and I have been using them daily. I don't really use the Lemon Aid as a primer, but it is by far the best concealer I have found for dark eyes. The It Stick is a fairly thick concealer, but I prefer a thicker concealer so it works really well for me. It lasts all day long, so I don't feel the need to take it out with me which I LOVE!

Next I have chosen a Barry M Dazzle Dust in number 39.

This is quite a pinky nude colour. I love wearing it during the day as the colour is not too in your face, but it is still very pigmented and has a lovely shimmer, giving your eyes a bit of a twinkle. Although it is not the easiest eyeshadow to appy as it is a loose powder, it lasts all day. Just Fabulous :)

I have been using a lot of the Soap and Glory Glow Job Daily Radiance Moisture Lotion recently.

It has been great as it gives you a lovely glow, which I am seriously lacking during these long winter months. I love how individual this product is. It has bronzing beads hidden in the cream the burst when you rub it in. The thing I love most about this product is that it is so versatile. It has been great during the winter to brighten up my skin under make up, but it is perfect in the summer as well to use as a tinted moisturiser, when foundation is a little too much. I also love popping this on when I'm just wondering around the house and don't want to put make up on, as it nurishes your face, but your still looking pretty :).

And last but by no means least, I am loving this little body spray by FCUK.

It came in a gift set that my mum was given but didn't want, and I really love the musky smell. I'm not really a fan of body spray as it reminds me of being a teenager at school, but this one lasts surprisingly well, and I would love to find the perfume version of it (if there is one!).

So tell me, what do you have planned for new years eve?

Lots of Love
