December 2015 Faves
Hi loves! I know, I know.. This post is way late and I should be doing my 2015 Faves by now but I actually filmed a video about this along with my December Haul but I really hated the quality and no matter how I edited it I still didn’t like the outcome. In fact, it’s already uploaded in my YT channel, I just deleted it. I REALLY hated it. Anyway, I will do my 2015 Faves ASAP, I promise.
As for now, let me share you my December 2015 Faves. Don’t worry, they’re not that many since I’ve been using the same ‘ol stuff and these are the only products that I recently added in my routine.
Bifesta Moist Cleansing Sheets – I actually got this from Hong Kong as well (click here to watch my Hong Kong/Collective Haul) but I think I failed to include this in my recent haul. Anyway, I was looking for the Biore Cleansing sheets but I got this one instead. I like this for removing my foundation/base. But when we’re dealing with waterproof makeup, such as mascara, eyeliner, liquid lipsticks, I’m afraid it’s not really as effective. But what I do love about this is that it’s very economical. I can remove my entire face makeup with just two sheets and that’s it.
Keratin Hair Reconstructor – This has been widely raved by most Pinay Youtubers so when I saw this in our local grocery, I immediately grabbed one (well, a dozen, since they don’t really sell this individually, lol). The hype is REAL! Ladies and gents. (if there are any :P) It worked wonders in my bleached hair and this product keeps it soft, smooth and tangle free. I LOVE IT.
Banila Co. CC Cream – Let me start this off, by saying that this doesn’t really offer anything in terms of coverage, but what I do like about this is that it brightens up my dull skin especially when I’m feeling ‘hagardo’. It also evens out my skin tone and minimizes the appearance of pores.
I haven’t used it as a base for any of my foundation/bb creams yet but so far, I really like it because of its no-fuzz application. I just use my fingers, pat on some product, then concealer, set it with powder, do my brows, bit of contour there (’cause I have a round face), blush here, lip balm there, mascara then I’m good to go This was my travel-buddy and it seriously saved me a lot of time.
Fashion 21 Eyebrow Gel in ‘Copper Brown’ – What I do like about this is that this matches my hair color and it also extends the wear of my brow makeup. HOWEVER (and this is a big one)… the wand/brush is so effin’ big, if you’re not to careful, it will really mess up your makeup. Kakainis! But like I said, I still like it. I just wish they’ll do something about the brush.
Burt’s Bees Moisturizing Lip Balm in ‘Wild Cherry’ – I lah-ove this! It’s definitely the most moisturizing Burt’s Bees lip balm that I have tried so far. If you don’t know me by now, you know that I love testing out new lip balms even though I have a ton of them opened already. This one beats all of the ones that I have so far. This is indeed very hydrating and it leaves my lips moisturized for hours.
Cream Silk Standout Straight Leave-On Cream – I love this because it’s definitely an emergency fix. Prior to using my Keratin Hair Reconstructor, when I find that my hair is being unruly or a bit lifeless, I just apply this from the middle to the tips. It makes my hair look soft and shiny but it doesn’t make ’em look greasy or heavy. It’s very different from other leave-on conditioners that I’ve used before. It’s definitely lightweight, and def something you can use when you want to give your hair an additional oomph. Of course, you can also use it when your hair is damp. In fact, it’s more effective that way, but the fact that I can use it when my hair is dry sounds more amazing for me. (Click here for my quick review about this product)
Loreal infallible Eyeshadow in ‘Iced Latte’ – This is the only infallible eyeshadow I own and so far I’m really loving it. It’s indeed very pigmented and the texture is really smooth and buttery. I also love the shade because it’s very versatile. This is the one that I used in my birthday look tutorial.
So that sums up my December Faves for the year 2015. I told you I don’t have a lot. The only reason I made a video was actually because of my Singapore-Malaysia Haul, lol. But the quality ruined it for me. I was playing around with the camera’s settings and something happened and.. blah.. never mind. But you can still take a peek of my Singapore trip in my vlog here and for a quick look of my Singapore-Malaysia haul, well here’s my previous IG photo:
Anyway, gotta go loves. Promise I’ll do my 2015 Faves ASAP and it’ll be a video. I have to do some major tweaking in my sister’s cam.
Till next time, everyone! Happy New Year!
UPDATE ABOUT THE YT GIVEAWAY: I will no longer be giving out a consolation prize since the only one who followed my tiny blurb at the end of my video’s desc box did not give out her email address (which is a part of my main instructions). Therefore, I will only be giving out the prize to the main Giveaway winner. I have already emailed her and she already responded. That’s all
