December Beauty Favourites

DSC_8324I don’t usually do monthly beauty favourites as I am the kind of girl that sticks to what I know, but this month (thanks in part to Kalahari.com’s massive beauty sale) I branched out and tried a few new things. I think I might have come across a few new favourites. DSC_8321

Can you believe that this is my first Essie polish, me neither! I wasn’t sure about Essie’s Ballet Slippers so I decided to go for Fiji which is a slightly opaque light-pink with a warm undertone. In my book the perfect shade for summer toes and great for when you’ve had glitter and red seasonal overload! I was slightly disappointed to find that it takes three coats to get it completely opaque, but I have to admit that after about a week of wearing it on my toes it still shows little wear and shone in the sunlight without a top coat. So definitely not my last Essie nailpolish!

I’ve also been on the fence about the Catrice creamy concealer. I usually prefer a liquid formula as I find it slightly easier to blend around my eyes but I decided to give the creamy one a try thanks to all the great reviews I’ve read. Luckily I did so as I think I might have a new favourite. It only creases when I’ve slightly overdone my under eyes and the lightest shade is an exact match for my light skintone. What a great budget buy even when it is full priced!
