This month the Beauty Basket is teaming up with the December Favourites. I’ve made a few cheeky Space NK and Boots purchases this month in addition to my Paris and US Sephora purchases, and I have been loving them!
First up is my mini Diptique Candle in Baies, a beautiful floral fragrance which wafts around my room and makes it feel so fresh. I also picked up the Nuxe Reve De Miel in France, which I think I’ve mentioned 101 times since, it’s just the perfect lip balm for me.
In Boots I picked up two Essie Polishes in Leading Lady and Chinchilly, it’s fair to say I love Leading Lady (review here) far more than Chinchilly, but they’re both so lovely, and I’ve been alternating them on my nails this month. The most expensive of them all was the Laura Mercier Silk Cream foundation from Space NK. Hands down, my new holy grail foundation – review here!
I’ve also been getting back into eyeshadow and blush this month, heck, I even asked for an eyeshadow pallet for Christmas (FYI – Naked Basics, post coming soon)! The Chanel Illusion D’Ombre in Emerveille has been so easy to apply and, mixed with Urban Decay’s Buck in the crease, is just perfect. For blush I am absolutely in love with the Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Tipsy. When applied with the Real Techniques blush brush, it can be quite sheer, but actually looks really lovely and natural that way. I’ve used it every day since Mumma and Pappa October brought it back for me.
Just a small beauty basket/favourites this month, but like many other bloggers, I have an even bigger favourites on the way! Keep your peepers peeled and have a lovely boxing day 🙂
