Favorites, Top 5s & 10s

December Favorites 2015

I cannot believe we are already in the new year. Where the fuck did the time go ? It feels like just yesterday I started blogging. I am SOOOOOOOOO excited for this year. I have a ton of awesome surprises coming up in the near future…. MAYBE a YouTube channel ? (wink wink) but I don’t know about that yet, I’m still working out the kinks. I also have some non-makeup favorites included in this post, which is really exciting for me. I hardly ever put non-makeup favorites in my monthly favorites, but it’s time for a refresh to my posts.

The first thing this month is the Carli Bybel Palette from bhcosmetics. I really like this palette, I think the quality far surpasses the low price tag and the colors are easy to work with. My favorite eyeshadows are the plums and the deep copper highlighter. I do have an EOTD using this palette, which can be viewed here.

I bought a bunch of Morphe single eyeshadows as a gift to myself (hehehe) and I really have been loving them. I do have a review on these eyeshadows, which you can find here. I also put up 3 EOTDs & you can find all them here, here, & here.

I honestly cannot remember if I’ve put this product in a monthly favorites before. I think I have…. but I’m not sure. This is the Lorac Mega Pro Palette 2, which came out in September/October and I got it the Sunday it came out. This palette has a lot of eyeshadows that I use everyday in combination with other eyeshadows/ eyeshadow palettes. I did do an eyelook + review, which you can read here.

The eyeshadows I’ve been using the most in this palette are Burlap, Goji, Melon, Peony, Penny & Gold Leaf

Nyx makes one of my favorite matte lipsticks from the drugstore. These lipsticks are smooth, have a matte finish without drying out your lips & come in a lot of colors.

The matte lipsticks I’ve been using the most are Aria, Indie Flick, Perfect Red & Alabama (available at most mass retailers & nyxcosmetics.com)

Kirkland Daily Facial Towlettes are my favorite wipe to remove makeup. I use them to clean up my eye makeup, take of any leftover makeup that my face wash didn’t or when my skin needs a refresher.

I got this in my stocking for Christmas & I finished them in less than a day. Funky Chunky Peanut Butter Cup Popcorn is so delicious, it’s this perfect combination of salty, sweet & loads of chocolate ribbon.

Those are the products I have been loving for the month of December folks. Tell me what your favorites were for this month. Tell me about anything you’re looking forward to in this new year. YouTube is definitely going to be a thing, I just need to make sure that I make it a priority. I’m always looking to add fresh & new content to my blog. I don’t want things to ever get boring. So if there’s anything you would like to see on this blog, please don’t hesitate to let me know.


♥XOXO♥, Crystal Emme
