My Favourites: December

Somehow December always ends up being the month in which I splurge and treat myself like no other. Although, that does also mean that this month I've found some amazing products. I'm planning a 'Favourites of 2016' products post, so I thought I would really only mention three stand-outs this month. 

Firstly would be the Nars Eyeshadow Duo 'Alhambra'. I debated for ages which eyeshadow duo to get but it was so easy to pick this up because of how stunning the shadows are. I've been wearing this non-stop during the festive party seasons because the pigmentation is flawless and the staying power is amazing. I wrote a full review piece on the duo here and I think this has just fuelled my love for Nars shadows more and I'm definitely contemplating picking up more!  

The Mac Cosmetics Nutcracker Sweet Bronze Pigments and Glitter Kit was another purchase in December which has just seriously changed my life *dramatic*. I've never used pigments before because I've always imagined them to be insanely pfaffy, but these are just so easy to use. It came with 3 pigments and one glitter, although I find the glitter to create a lot of fall-out, the three pigments are just a thing of beauty. The pigmentation is outstanding and these will literally last a life time! It's such a shame that these are from their limited edition Christmas range because I generally think everyone needs to own them! 

Of course a special mention has to go out to my new Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita palette. My goodness have I worn this a lot through December (although may not look like it). This was both my Christmas Eve, Christmas Day eyeshadow look, and can guarantee it will probably be my New Years one too. This is just one of those cult beauty products that everyone loves, for a reason. It's totally beautiful and I think this is one of the palettes that can take you from Autumn right till December!
