My first favourite thing of December has to be these adorable Gabriella Cat Fluffy Socks from Primark that I kindly recently received for Christmas! I already own a few things from Gabriella’s stationary range as I am obsessed with it and just generally stationary but I had never purchased anything from her clothing or homeware range so when I opened these, I couldn’t wait to try them on! These are now glued to my feet because they are the softest thing I have ever felt, and how cute is the cat design!? The socks even have paw prints on the bottom and a non slip ‘Gabriella‘ logo. I also love the pastel colour of these too! Basically, I love these socks and for the price you can’t go wrong!!
The next thing that I have been loving recently is this Tanya Burr Lipstick in the shade ‘Pink Cocoa.‘ As soon as Tanya released these lipsticks to her makeup range I instantly fell in love with them, especially this gorgeous pinky nude shade. For some reason every time I went into a Superdrug store, they were always out of stock of this shade! I finally got my hands on one a few days ago after ordering it online and I have been wearing it everyday since! The lipstick itself is such great quality and the packaging reminds me of a more high-end lipstick with the gold mirrored effect even though it is drugstore. Overall, I would definitely recommend these and I would consider picking up more shades in the future!
Another makeup item I have been loving throughout December is the Rimmel London Wonder’full Mascara. I picked this up a few weeks ago and I am absolutely loving it! Although I don’t usually like larger wands, I don’t find that this mascara is too difficult to apply which is bonus! This mascara also contains Argan Oil which is meant to condition your lashes which means when you come to take your makeup off at the end of the day, it is so much easier which is definitely something I look for in a mascara!
The next makeup item is the Benefit Gimme Brow Volumizing Eyebrow Gel and I have mine in the shade ‘03 – medium.‘ I have always used brow palettes which have a wax and brow powder and don’t get me wrong they are great and they did the job for me but I’ve always wanted to try a product from Benefit’s brow range now they are known for their brows! At first I didn’t know what product would be best for me as they are on the more expensive side but I had heard lots of good things about this product and I loved the concept! Now having tried it, it has transformed my brow game! Let me know if you would like to see a full brow tutorial as I’d love to do one but this product is amazing and it is definitely worth the hype and the money!!
Finally, moving onto skincare the last favourite is The Body Shop British Rose Instant Glow Body Butter . I have always loved The Body Shop’s body butters but this is slightly different as it adds a lovely glow to your skin! This scent is also one of my faves with the fresh, floral flowers! If you haven’t already tried any of their body butter, I would definitely recommend them! That brings me to the end of my December Favourites 2016! Thank you so much for reading as always and I hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know what your favourite product has been this month?? and I’ll see you in my next post!
Much Love and Happy New Year, Amelia xx
