Beauty Favourites December

In December, I started to use a new face care. More specifically, I started to use the Caudalie Vinosource series: the S.O.S. thirst quenching serum and the moisture recovery cream. I love both, especially the serum because it is light. The face cream is rather for dry skin and as I somehow got some spots, I am wondering whether it is too rich for my skin in this warm winter. My eye care still consists of the same products like in November and I still do love the products a lot. Here is a picture of my skin care in December:

As makeup for the eyes, I enjoyed using the NYX nude on nude natural look kit (see here more pictures and swatches). It is perfect for traveling and I used it while visiting my family over Christmas and also on New Years eve. On an every day basis, I also enjoyed using a limited edition nude eye shadow by Alverde and the eye shadow "My first Copperware Party" by Catrice (shown in the right upper corner of the picture below). I also rediscovered my 2000 Calorie Dramatic Look mascara by Max Factor and my MAC khol liner in Stubborn Brown.
I still loved to use my MAC BB cream. For the cheeks, I enjoyed using the recently purchased NYX cream blush in Glow and my Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Exposed.

In December, I also rediscovered my MAC 222 brush for a very detailed crease. In the last months I ended up using other brushes but in december I fell in love again with this brush. I bought it in January 2012 and when I found out that MAC had taken it from the market, I purchased a backup for a very high price on Ebay. I am really glad that I found it and bought it - even though it was very expensive. I love this brush. There is no other brush that allows for such a detailed crease like this one. At least not in my brush collection and my brush collection is really huge.

The last product is not a classical beauty product. However, it really saved me because I somehow ended up eating a lot of garlic over Christmas and New Years Eve and the chlorophyll tablets shown below helped me to avoid the aweful scent afterwards. Great product and it really works (with me at least).

  1. Hi Tia, da ich bei meinem Post mit der Kommentaren kaum noch durchblicke, wollte ich dir hier kurz antworten und dir von Herzen für Deine Worte danken!!! Ihr könnt Euch alle nicht vorstellen, welches warmes Gefühl, dass in mir auslöst, wie viele tolle Leute es gibt die "caren". Wahnsinn :) Ich überlege gerade, ob wir nicht irgendwo einen privaten Ort schaffen zum weiter quatschen über diese Themen...scheint uns ja alle irgendwo zu beschäftigen...mal schauen. Vielen Dank auf jeden Fall. Bin gespannt, auf deine Reise.:)

    Und sorry, dass der Kommentar jetzt gar nichts mit dem Post zu tun hat. Das soll nicht wieder vorkommen. ;)

    Die liebsten Grüße, Mimi
