December Favorites

Do you all agree that this year has gone by insanely fast? It's hard to believe that we'll be in 2011 so soon!

Here are my favorite products of December...

Revlon Lipstick in Fabulous Fig

I have found this lipstick on my quest to finding the perfect red lipstick by accident. I love accidents that lead to something precious like Fabulous Fig lipstick. It's a color I would normally not even look at but after doing a quick search for it's swatches, I instantly fell in love with it. You know the rest... I would describe it as a brownish red which surprisingly looks great with my complexion. Finally something other than a nude or pink!

Victoria's Secret Lipstick in Celebutante

Celebutante is one of my newest lipsticks that quickly became one of my favorites. I do occasionally wear Celebutante alone but I seem to enjoy wearing it under Maybelline's Pink Please a lot more! I love the creamy, pinky-nude color they create together.

Sigma Angled Top Kabuki Brush - F84

If I had to use one word to describe this brush, it would be nothing other than 'AMAZING'! I bought this wonderful brush not too long ago after reading about it on Twitter (thank you Twitter for all your enablings!) I had been looking for a blush brush and couldn't bring myself to spend more than 20 bucks for one so this was perfect as it only costs $16! F84 is one of Sigma's 3 new Sigmax brushes and it's incredibly soft. I absolutely love the way it picks up blush and how it accurately places it on my face. I get the same color on my cheek as it's in the pan! It's so easy to blend with also. I can never be without this brush, so glad I have found it!

 Shu Uemura Painting Liner
I was upset over my Wet n Wild gel liner drying up into this little ball so I had to toss it. I've been hearing really good things about Shu Uemura's painting liners and while they are on the more expensive side, I caved and went for it. I am truly amazed by this gel liner. I wear it on my upper and lower lid as well as waterline and it does not smudge throughout the day, it's my current go-to gel liner!

Benefit Hoola Bronzer
After finishing my last NYC Sunny bronzer, I started using Hoola and it's really not anything like I used before. It gives off the perfect tan color, doesn't contain any shimmer/glitter in other words it's matte. I love that it goes on smooth and not muddy. It looks very natural, I'm hooked!

Barry M Blusher in Terracotta
It's a matte, brown-red/terracotta (hence the name) shade that's just perfect for the season! I've been using it almost daily in December!
Too Faced Natural Eye

This Too Faced palette has been my go-to palette for sometime now! There is nothing I don't love about it, from pigmentation to texture of these eye shadows everything has been great. I also love that none of these colors crease and the color pay off is amazing! My most-used/favorite colors are Silky Teddy, Push-up and Cocoa Puff.

Urban Decay eye-shadow in Half Baked

I don't wear too much gold on my lids but wearing it on lower lash line is something I do quite a bit! And I think Half Baked is perfect for this purpose. It makes the eyes look just sparkly and beautiful! Works great when your eyes are neutral but you wanna add a little somethin' somethin', that's have I usually wear it :) If you have the Naked palette Half Baked is in there, I had bought Half Baked way before Naked palette was made, as you can see I use it so much it broke :)


  1. That Too Faced palette is gorgeous! I see they're trying to give NARS a run on racy names. LOL!

    I haven't tried any of Sigma's face brushes yet. I love their eye brushes, though! For now, my EcoTools set is doing the trick!

    Half Baked is pretty. Man, I hate it when my shadows break! I fail every time I try to do the alcohol trick. Our fur baby knocked my matte black shadow on the bathroom floor earlier this year, and instead of fixing it, I used it like a pigment. LOL!

  2. That's how I wear my Half-baked too, under the eye area, otherwise wearing it on the lid makes me too much like I'm an extra out of Goldfinger.


  3. I love my sigma brushes too :) did u just buy the angled one? I bought all three and they sent me a free eyeshadow brush with the package wohoooo :)

  4. Sigmanin fircasini ben de siparis vermistim, ve gercekten süper bir ürün *_* Maybelline´nen rujuna da ben bir bakim ;))

    Loreal´in rujunu aldinmi bu arada??

    sevgiler & mUtlu yillar diliyorum sana tatlim
