December Favourites 2014

I don't think I've ever done a December favourites before because I often don't find I use many different products this month. I'm also usually thinking more of what I've been loving all year instead of just last month.
However, I've found myself gravitating towards some new and some old this month and thought I would share them. 
I posted my Sephora Beauty Haul and I was lucky enough to get both Hourglass palettes. The Ambient Lighting powders and the Ambient Blushers. I have not put these down. To start with I didn't have a clue where to start with the powders but now I think I'd be lost without them. The blusher palette looks gorgeous and my favourite so far has been mood exposure. 
Primers are often one of those beauty products I have a love hate relationship with. I think I've found THE ONE! bareMinerals Prime Time BB primer in light. Everything you need in a primer and more. I actually first tried this when I popped along to try the bareskin foundation. I recieved a press sample and have since repurchased it because I loved it that much!  
Foundation wise. I tried the Giorgio Armani Luminous silk at the Debenhams AW press show and obviously I bought one as soon as I could. This is a gorgeous foundation and I have been reaching for it a lot this month. It has that lovely glowy finish but is also a really good coverage, all I need is 1 and a half pumps. 
Estée Lauder Sumptious Infinite mascara is amazing. I'm a bit fussy when it comes to mascara as I already have long eyelashes so some (Benefit They're Real) can make them look clumpy. Not this one it gives amazing length and separates out your lashes thanks to the brush design. 
The Collection 24 Hour Felt Tip Liner is possibly the best liquid liner I have tried. It doesn't dry out after 2 days and it makes doing winged eyeliner easy peasy. 
I've been using the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray a lot this month. It keeps your makeup in place pretty much all day and is also amazing for using wih glitter eyeshadow just spray the brush before dipping it in and it will stay put! 
We all know December is the time of the red lips but I pretty much wear red all year round. So when I've not been feeling like a full on red this month I've been using YSL Rouge Volupte Fuschia in Excess which is a beautiful colour I have previously reviewed Rouge in Danger
Next up skincare, I haven't really been changing my routine much this month just with being too busy but I do have a lot of new bits I am excited to try. 2 things I have been loving this month though are. Origins Ginzing moisturiser, this wakens your skin up in the morning and is really light on the skin. Also the Vichy Normaderm serum.. Too much chocolate gives me breakouts and this little beauty has been saving my skin. 

That's all for my December favourites and I should have my favourites for 2014 up very soon!
