December favorites

So, obviously I suck at doing Blogmas. I'm really sorry you guys. I really wanted to make it work, but with it being the holidays I've been really busy. But it's a new year now and I'm ready to start up my normal routine again.

So let's start of this year with talking about my favorites from last year. I discovered a whole bunch of new products in december and I'm excited to share them with you.

1. Lancôme Dreamtone 
If you read my November favorites then you'll know that I absolutely adore the MAC prep+prime moisture infusion serum. Sadly, I ran out of it. Instead of going out and buying a new one, I decided to use up what I had and that's how I discovered the Lancôme dreamtone serum. I bought this a while ago as it promised to reduce dark spots and acne scarring. But once I started using my MAC serum this one kinda dissapeared to the back of my mind. It's a shame really, because it really is a great product. It's really pricey. I think I paid about €76 for it, but I would buy it again. I'm noticing such a difference in my skin. 

2. L'Oréal True Match foundation
This foundation is a favorite among beauty lovers and yet I was hesitant to buy it. I thought it would be too sheer and it wouldn't hold well on my oily skin. Somehow I convinced myself to buy it and I'm glad I did. It does give a lighter coverage than I'm used to, but I love it. It's the kind of foundation that I can just throw on and it will look great. 

3. Benefit 'They're real' mascara
Again, this mascara is a definite favorite among the beauty bloggers. I got this in my benefit advent calender and I'm glad I did, because I would never spend the money on it. It just costs way too much for a mascara. I really like it though, it lenghtens and defines my lashes like no other. I'm keeping this in my special occasion drawer, because I only have two little sample sizes of it and I'm not planning on buying the full size any time soon. 

4. The Balm eyeshadow palettes
I can't even begin to describe my excitement about these.. I think I own all of them. When I discovered them in stores in Belgium I went a bit make-up crazy and just got them all. Best buy ever!! I haven't even used any other eyeshadow brand this past month. 

5. Physicians Formula 'Happy booster' blush
I remember a few years back this got a lot of hype in the beauty community, but it's been a while since I've heard about them. I still was really excited when I saw this though. It's now a staple in my make-up collection. It's a really sheer, beautiful everyday blush. I absolutely love it

6. Real Techniques Make-up brushes
OMG.. Get out of the way MAC, I have found my one true love <3 These brushes are AMAZING!! They are super soft, they apply product beautifully.. I just love them. I'm planning on doing a post on them really soon, so if you want to know what I think about them, keep your eyes open on this blog for the next few days..
