A few notables:

IT Cosmetics for Ulta Live Beauty Fully Flawless Blush Brush # 227 and the All Over Powder Brush # 211. I bought them for myself for Christmas. Hey, I had a coupon. And I love to hoard collect makeup brushes. These brushes are so. soft! They are like applying makeup with a baby chinchilla. Without the nasty cruelty implications. 

Dermalogica Age Smart Super Rich Repair Cream. It is Winter. Cold, dry and we are running heat. My poor skin is taking a real beating! This cream is keeping it off the ceiling. 

IT Cosmetics CC+ Veil Beauty Fluid Foundation SPF 50. My shade is Fair. The more I use this stuff, the more I love, love, love it! Beautiful, almost flawless coverage and finish, near perfect shade match, fast and easy application, comfortable all day wear and a chemical free SPF of 50. What more could I ask for?

I almost always apply my foundation and CC cream with my beloved Beauty Blender. I have tried "dupes" and the Real Techniques version but the original is the best and the one for me. 

BITE Beauty High Pigment Lip Pencils. You know what I think of these! Creamy dreamy, highly pigmented, beautiful shades, easy on, long wear, soft, happy lips. And they taste lightly of vanilla. Splendid. 

Mirabella Swirling Pearl Brilliant Mineral Highlighter. Oh. My. Gosh. This is so beautiful. They say that a little glow is youthful. I agree. This highlighter imparts the perfect touch of lit from within radiance. 

Urban Decay Vice 3 Eye Shadow Palette. So beautiful and versatile, I keep reaching for it. This palette is beginning to get a little harder to find. If you want it, grab it while you can. It is so good!

Lancome Grandiose Wide Angle Fan Effect Mascara. I didn't expect to love this as much as I do. Honestly, I bought it to get the freebies that came with it and because the packaging is so pretty. It was supposed to be a one off. I love this stuff and that scares me. This mascara is $32.00 a tube. 

NARS Virtual Domination Cheek Palette. Blushes, a highlighter and a surprisingly wearable bronzer that swatches scary as hell and buffs on gorgeous. This has to be not only a December favorite but a favorite makeup purchase for the year. I am so happy that I bought and have this palette.
