Monthly Favourites: December

Happy New Year you lovely lot! I hope you all had a great time last night and are nursing a hangover, I am fortunately not because I didn't drink that much and spent some quality time with a friend which was nice, this was the first time in a while I enjoyed New Years Eve.

But it's that time again and the last one of 2012 - Favourites time! This month I've been embracing the high street, adding new picks to my make-up and changing my routines.

001. I've read so many rave reviews on blogs about the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation, it's radiance boosting, good coverage and lasts really well on my skin. I originally saw reviews from bloggers such as Zoella and she has amazing skin so when I went to Superdrug in the search of an easy everyday foundation to wear for work, I picked up this.

002. And as well as picking up the foundation, I also grabbed the concealer in the 3 for 2 offer. I twisted the last of my L'oreal Lumi Magique highlighting concealer out and I've been in hunt for an alternative that's slightly cheaper. This concealer has more coverage and not as highlighting as the L'oreal one but it's perfect for under eye dark circles on early mornings.

003. This is the only high end favourite this month! I wrote a rave review the YSL Shocking mascara here. This has been amazing for creating volume to my lashes, the formula is great, the packaging is luxurious. This is a new mascara favourite.

004. I never thought this mascara would be in my favourites at the beginning of the month, I stashed it away in my make-up collection and left it but on the quest for long voluminous lashes, I dug it out and teamed with the YSL Shocking mascara, it's a perfect combo. I apply this first to lengthen and seperate my lashes, wait for it to dry and add lashings of YSL Shocking to create the volume!

005. Another wonder product from Rimmel, this Kate Moss lipstick in 110 is amazing! The formula is perfect, it's creamy even though it has a matte finish and it lasts hours. I applied this on a night out and only had to touch up once. Every blogger seems to be wearing this at the moment and I can see why. Rimmel have really upped their game recently and I'm so surprised at how much I like their products especially after they were a brand I hated (still don't like their mascaras though)!

What are your December favourites? Have you tried any of these products?
