Today, the lovely Anca from Coralista-xo will be sharing her favourite products of December with you. Make sure you check out her blog! :)
Hello lovely readers :) . My name is Anca and I blog over at coralista-xo (http://coralista-xo.blogspot.com/). Today, I will be presenting you with my December favourites here on Frances’ wonderful blog.
This month my make-up has been very minimal but I have been wearing foundation almost every time I wore make-up. I prefer to go lighter on the eyes but I like my skin to look as good as it can and I found that Bourjois Healthy Mix has kept my skin very natural-looking. It lets my skin breathe and most of the time I almost feel as if I am not wearing any foundation. The coverage of this foundation is buildable but I rarely build it up as I prefer to go over my problem areas with concealer and use foundation in order to even out my skin tone. This foundation smells absolutely divine and it has been my favourite for many months now as I have a slightly darker shade which I use in the summer! It retails for £10 in Boots for 30ml, and it also has a pump. I would definitely check this out if you haven’t already! I have achieved the light look I love with my Sigma F84 (Angled Top Kabuki). I love the how this applies my foundation in an even way with no streaks.
Oddly enough, my go to fragrance for this month has been Daisy by Marc Jacobs. I say oddly because I don’t consider this a winter scent but for some reason I have been drawn to it most days. The smell is fruity and light and it incorporates notes such as Strawberry, Violet Leaves and Grapefruit. What I have been loving about it most is the fact that paired with my travalo they are a perfect combination. Since this month was all about family gatherings and traveling, having the travalo in my purse was very nice and I could reapply every time I needed to instead of lugging around the large bottle. Another thing which you can do is mix different scents in order to create a whole new perfume and I have been playing with a few others from my collection. I never fill up my travalo because I enjoy switching things up. The travalo has gotten a lot of positive feedback from many great gurus in the beauty community and for a good reason it really is an amazing concept!
Another product I discovered and fell in love with this month is Rimmel’s Day 2 Night mascara. I believe this is a dupe for Bourjois’ Volumizer Mascara. They both use 2 steps of which the first defines the lashes without clumping them which is perfect for daytime and the second coats the lashes and creates maximum volume which is preferred for night time. Although the second step does clump up the lashes a bit, if you’re not into that look you can always use the first brush again to take away any clumps which may have been left behind. All in all, this is a great mascara, and I absolutely love the fact that I can do two things with one product. Although I am highly impressed with this I am also tempted to try the Bourjois one which retails at £11 in Boots.
Lastly, I have been loving Lorac’s blush Rendezvous. This is a lovely pink with a light amount of shimmer. Again, probably the opposite choice for winter for many as darker, deeper colours are preferred but I simply love the way this compliments the colour of my already rosy cheeks. It lightens up my complexion and gives my skin the dewy look I love.
Before I go, I would like to thank Frances for the awesome experience and I must say although I enjoyed writing this up very much, I cannot wait for her to get back to posting regularly because her blog is one of my favourite ones! Thank you for taking the time to read my post and I will be waiting for you over on my blog if you liked what you saw and would like to say hello. Have a wonderful day.
Lots of love,
