December, I am not ready to let go!!! You brought me a 4.0 GPA, a slightly overpriced body lotion, another visit to a fancy theater (and my first live performance of The Nutcracker), and many different baked goods! To show my full December gratitude, I’ve made this post of my loves from the past month!
You may have seen this pencil already in my Winter Red Lip Guide, and I was not over-exaggerating my love for it. I wore it to the Nutcracker, and it pairs nicely with a wing! Plus, I have a habit for buying red lips with a strong coral or pink undertone, and this one leans more toward a true red for me.
This product’s packaging: TRASH. The actual powder: Golden! Actually, it’s white, then fairly translucent without a whole lot of wild flashblack. It’s also great to put on your face right after you apply primer, but before your foundation for maximum oil control!
This has been a staple in my makeup routine for work. I use it like a shimmery blush and highlight, and pop a dash of it from my cheeks to my cheekbones for a natural glow.
Soap & Glory is now sold at the Walgreens by my school and I am obsessed. They really tried it with their foundation shades, but they still hold a special place in my heart after trying their lipstick and sampling all of their lotions. I finally invested in this $12 one (way too much coin, in my opinion) and I love it. It has a very light and natural, but still slightly sweet scent. Plus, it does make the skin soft without being greasy.
If you’ve been rocking with me since the beginning of this blog, then you already know about my love for this product. I didn’t bring it to school with me, but since I’m home for winter break, it is giving a revival. This mask boosted my credit score, payed off my tuition, and saved me from any tomfoolery in my Tinder messages (okay, it did none of that, but’s still pretty bomb).
Forever 21 Sweater
Christmas may have passed, but I spent a smooth $12 on this sweater, so it’s definitely going to be consistent in my collection. It’s very warm and oversized, which surprised me since I’ve been burned by F21 sweaters before (read: all the time). A definite bonus is that the print and color is very subtle, so it gives out more winter vibes than actual festive ones.
Bath & Body Works Caribbean Escape
I’m not a huge candle person. I own a wax warmer and am always putting it to use, but I’m trying to get more into candles. This has the strongest scent from my tiny candle collection, and I love the clean shape of the packaging. Plus, my birthday is in the summer, so the tropical and warm vibes of the candle makes it feel like everyday is my birthday.
What’s your December love?
Thanks for reading!
Until next time, have an awesome rest of your day and an amazing rest of your week!
