7 December Beauty Favorites That Knocked My Socks #beauty #skincare #makeup

I’m super excited to share the beauty products that I have really been loving the past couple of months.  I know I’m a little late with my favorites.  Like, 2 months late.  But at least you know the love is real, and  better late than never, right?  

As you can see, it is a mix of both skincare and color cosmetics that someone would have to pry from my grubby little hands to take them from me.  Let’s start with cheeks!

LORAC Unzipped Cheek Palette

This cheek palette is the best palette I have ever come across.  I can damn near wear every color in this beautiful pearlized, super pigmented collection.  My go-tos are Unapologetic (bronze shimmer) and Unashamed (matte pink)–just depends on if I’m going for more of a flirty/girly look, or a sexy/sultry look.  I’m just such a fan and think every woman, no matter what shade or ethnicity, can rock this collection of hues.

SheaMoisture CC cream (light for fall/winter, medium for summer)

If you are a brown girl, head to your nearest Target, and pick up this product.  The price is awesome and a little goes a long way.  Also when it says, it is an “all-in-one wonder,” it truly is.  It’s a 6-in-1 cream–primer, color corrector, moisturizer, sun protectant, brightener and conditioner.  And I promise you, it does what it says.  It provides a semi-matte finish that looks very natural.  I never leave the house without this puppy, and it’s all I need to achieve a beat selfie. Hehe!

NUXE Huile Prodigieuse® Multi-Purpose Dry Oil Shimmer

This gorgeous oil smells and looks beautiful.  I love slathering this on my legs or arms for a night out, and the boyfriend loves it.  It is just the right amount of shimmer, and guess what?  You can purchase this at Target, too!

Chrome Girl Nail Polish in No Tan Lines

This natural creamy shade is a big love of mine; and I noticed it has quickly become the color I pick up first when I have no idea what color to paint my nails.  It is the perfect everyday color for me.  It’s a classic and the quality is worth the price.

Yes To Carrots Fragrance-Free Ultra Hydrating Night Cream

Over the past few months, I have swapped my Dermalogica Active Moist for this $12.99 all natural moisturizer. I was actually surprised how much I liked it, and how effective and hydrating it is as a night cream.  Ain’t nothing wrong with this drugstore buy.

MAC Cosmetics Satin Lipstick in Amorous Paired With Half Red Lip Pencil

This satin, deep mauvey pink is the perfect natural pink color for fall.  I prefer satins over mattes lately, and It has been the color I rock to the office, everyday.  Paired with the Half Red lip pencil, it is a match made in heaven.

NYX Lush Lashes Mascara in Badunkadunk

I receive so many compliments on my lashes with this one.  Literally, everyone thinks I have extensions.  That is how fab this product is in providing volume and length, and I love the rubber wand.  To go along with Amorous, I apply the Badunkadunk mascara, and with this simple look, I’m turning heads, baby.
