December Favorites 2014

What a month! I always want to enjoy December more than I feel like I get to. It just always feels so rushed and then all of a sudden it’s the holiday and then it’s done! Listening to Christmas music always gets me in the spirit, along with my pine scented candle! Let’s get into what I was loving!

Bolt Blogs December Favorites

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette: I think people either love this or don’t think it does enough and return it. I got mine during the VIB sale and am so so glad I did. I use the shade on the left for setting my under-eyes (it doesn’t looked caked or powdery), the middle for highlighting, and the right for adding a little warmth on my cheeks.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Eye Cream: I am a huge fan of this eye cream. It is very hydrating but lightweight which makes it perfect for going underneath makeup.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow – Sin: I just use my finger to pop this in my inner corner and brighten things up! I also have a drugstore dupe for this product here!

Physician’s Formula Multi-Colored Bronzer: PF just knows how to do bronzers! This is my second one of these bad boys. It isn’t too orange and is just a great bronzer! (not contour)

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment: This is a mini from the Sephora Favorites and I love it! It comes off like a warm pinky, really just enhances whatever your lip color naturally is. Great balm for the cold.

      That’s why I never took the plunge so I hear ya! If you ever have a giftcard or rewards (ie Nodstrom) I’d recommend

        Thanks! I never get the eye creams that say, “do not apply this to your eyelids”…seriously, what’s the point? I might need to go pick this up 🙂
