A Lovely You – Makeup Tips for Every Woman

Posts Tagged ‘beauty favorites

This month, I’ve picked a few favorites from my beauty cabinet that continue to impress me. In no particular order, here they are!

1. Color Club Nail Polish in Love ‘Em Leave ‘Em

Despite the fact that I’m drawn to brights and neon colors during this time of the year, the pretty light golden brown of this polish is seriously gorgeous. Plus, it’s holographic and shimmery in sunlight! Seriously, look up a swatch of this shade – you’ll fall in love. Normally I’m ADD when it comes to polish and have to change it every few days, but this puppy has been on my nails for a week now and holding up nicely.

2. NYX Ultra Pearl Mania

These are a lot smaller than I realized initially, but a little goes a long way. This loose shimmer eyeshadow is really pretty and can be used to create a variety of looks (I have Orange Zest, and it’s a very nice, bright orange – not clownish, though.) The shimmer is very visible, but it’s flattering and not over the top. Plus, it’s super easy to blend.

3. Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange Body Butter

You can read my review of this body butter here – if you do, you’ll know why it’s made the list of favorites this month! Not only does it smell absolutely divine (especially when you layer it with the matching perfume,) but it’s very moisturizing and leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth almost all day long. It’s also fast absorbing and non-greasy, so you don’t have to worry about having an icky, heavy film on your skin after applying.

What beauty products are you currently loving this month?


Every month, I’m going to make a short post about my current beauty obsessions for that month; I want to encourage my readers to share their favorites too! Without further ado, here are my current December beauty favorites:

1. e.l.f. cream eyeliner

I’m currently loving e.l.f.’s cream liner; I have it in “Punk Purple.” It’s a great way to liven up any eye look with an unexpected pop of color, and the included brush makes it a cinch to apply. Plus, it lasts forever on my lids – especially if I use a primer beforehand.

2. Maybelline Shine Sensational Lip Gloss in Glamorous Guava

If I could, I would buy nearly all of the colors/flavors of this lip gloss from Maybelline. When I keep the focus on my eyes, this lip gloss is the perfect neutral accompaniment but it also looks great worn over your favorite lip color. Plus it smells and tastes FANTASTIC!

3. Julep Pomegranate Body Cream

Julep’ s Pomegranate Body Cream is a recent acquisition, and I am already loving how moisturized and soft it makes my skin feel. Plus, it smells soooo good! I’ve never been a huge fan of pomegranate anything, but this moisturizer smells sweet without being too cloying and it melts into my skin like butter.

I have a lot more “obsessions” for this month, but I think these three are the products I am really in love with. Now tell me: What are YOUR current beauty faves for December?
