December Favourites 2018

I know we’re in 2019, but I still have to do my December favourites… just because. You know I like a good old favourites post, and I do have my yearly favourites nearly ready to go too. My 2017 one is still one of my favourite posts I’ve done.

First of all, I hope you had an amazing Christmas, and a Happy New Year! In this post I’ll be going through everything I’ve been loving in December.

Let’s get into it!

Too Faced | Hangover Primer

This primer was my go to in 2017, but after a while I stopped repurchasing. I received this for Christmas and now I regret ever stopping using it. This primer is very hydrating, and my skin looks so much healthier when I’ve used this.

Tarte | Shape Tape Concealer

I’m pretty sure I bought this in the summer and it was too light for me, but now that it’s Winter it’s a better match. I find that it’s easy to apply too much so I always have to wipe a lot of excess product off first. The coverage is great and it doesn’t crease. I know pretty much everyone talks about this and is definitely worth the hype.

ColourPop | I Think I Love You Eyeshadow Palette

As you can see I’ve not used much, so it is kind of cheating to include it here. In my defence I haven’t had it for very long, but when I used it I loved it. Excuses I know. I used this on Christmas and it didn’t last all day, but that was a long day. My favourite shade is the one on the bottom left which is called: Screw it. It’s described as a metallic soft rose gold.

Laura Mercier | Translucent Setting Powder

I’ve had this for a while and it’s showing no sign of using up. Considering I use it every time I do my makeup that is pretty good going. I’ve always used this to set my under eyes, and it leaves a truly flawless finish and my concealer does not budge. In December I’ve started using this to set my entire face and I’ve suffered with transfer a lot less. I know this powder is a lot of money, but it’s truly worth it.

Charlotte Tilbury | Lip Lustre Seduction

I treated myself to a few bits from the Charlotte Tilbury Black Friday sale. Even though they changed my order, I still managed to get the set that this gloss came in. Gloss has been my thing lately, it’s so comfortable even though it’s not long wearing. Seduction is a beautiful classic nude. This gloss isn’t sticky, but it does need reapplying regularly.

Galaxy Chocolate

If you’re after a blogger to help you make healthy food choices then you have come to the wrong place. Believe it or not I’m not a huge chocolate fan, so it’s been a while since I’ve had Galaxy. In December my advent calendar was Galaxy, and I received a selection box for Christmas. Both reminded me of how much I love it, especially the caramel version. Delicious.


 Christmas is my favourite day of the year. It’s a day to enjoy with family and good food. We go out for our Christmas dinner, as we struggle fitting everybody into one house. The highlight for me was seeing my Nan’s face whilst opening her presents, being able to spoil her is one of my favourite things and seeing her happy is the highlight.

I’m going to leave this here, as this list is getting a little out of hand already. I hope you’ve enjoyed!

What were you loving throughout December?

Thank you for reading!

    I really want to try the Too Faced hangover primer, everyone says it’s amazing especially for dry skin! I love the look of that Colourpop palette, I’m always impressed by their shades and it looks perfect for this time of the year xx


    • 10th January 2019 / 12:09 am

      It’s such a good one, it’s really helped the appearance of my skin when I wear makeup. It’s such a great palette and one that’s great for any time of day it’s fab. Yes, they have so many palettes to pick from xx

  2. 9th January 2019 / 10:11 pm

    That Colourpop palette looks gorgeous!! I haven’t made an order in so long! Love the look of the CT gloss too, I’ve been wearing a lot more gloss recently as my lips get so dry in the Winter months. I’m so pleased you had a lovely Christmas Hannah xx

    • 10th January 2019 / 12:13 am

      It’s such a good one! They have so many amazing products to pick from too. Yeah, I’m totally with you on that one, glosses are perfect for this time of year. Thank you so much, I hope you did too xx

    I have used that primer is pretty good I got in a swag bag when I was at an event in Paris. Now I use Becca’s Backlight. And I sooooo want to try a Colour Pop palette. And that Tarte concealer looks creamy which I like. I may look this up.

      I’m glad you quite liked it too, and I’ve heard some great things about that one! I may have to give it a try. They have so many to pick from, it can be hard to narrow down haha! It’s definitely a thick one, I hope you like it xx

  5. 10th January 2019 / 10:09 am

    I’ve still got soo many chocolates left over I could use them as blog props for the rest of the year haha. I’ve been loving the Laura Mercier powder as well, I keep forgetting about it and then I love it for a few weeks, I’m in that few weeks now haha. That photo of you and your family is beautiful – so warming!!

      Do it, it seems to have gone down well haha! It’s such a great one. Thank you so much xx

    I’m so ashamed to say that I haven’t used any of these beauty products yet, aah! I really want to try the Tarte Concealer though, so that will definitely be a purchase I make at some point this year. I’ve also always wanted to try a Charlotte Tilburry product, so that’s another thing to do a little research on as well!

    Great post and gorgeous photos! x

    • 10th January 2019 / 6:34 pm

      Ah no way! It’s such a fab concealer, I hated it at first, but once you learn how to make it work it’s a lot better. I hope you love it! She has so many beautiful ones, it’s hard to pick haha! Thank you so much xx

  7. 10th January 2019 / 11:45 am

    I have the too faced primer and for me it’s the scent that puts me off using it more but it’s such a good product! I’m yet to buy any colour pop products I think it’s time I bit the bullet and placed an order. Great post xo

    • 10th January 2019 / 6:37 pm

      Yeah the scent was a funny one for me at first! They’ve been hard to get a hold of, so I don’t blame you. I hope you’re able to pick out some bits you love! Thank you xx

    • 10th January 2019 / 6:38 pm

      It’s so good isn’t it?! I’m totally with you on that one xx

      It’s such a great time of year! Thank you, I hope you did too. It’s such a fab primer, and I don’t blame you, they have so many to pick from. Thank you so much xx

  10. 10th January 2019 / 6:29 pm

    Love these favourites! I really want to try the Too Faced primer as it’s always been primer that I have heard lots of other people recommend. I am obsessed with the palettes by Colourpop the only thing that breaks my heart is how long the delivery is and the payment slip to Royal Mail when it comes through the door! Great post x


    • 10th January 2019 / 6:41 pm

      Thank you! It’s such a fab one, it’s done wonders for the appearance of my skin. They have so many to pick from don’t they, but that’s true- it takes ages! You don’t get the payment slip anymore though, it’s all included at the checkout! Thank you xx

  11. 10th January 2019 / 9:56 pm

    Ahh! The Too Faced primer is just amazing! I need to repurchase it as I ran out at the end of last year. It’s SO hydrating, I love it.

      It’s so good isn’t it?! I hope you’re able to try it out again and love it just as much xx

  12. 10th January 2019 / 11:26 pm

    You have some great favorites this month! I’ve been looking for a good primer to use and one that is hydrating would be perfect, so that Too Faced one is now on my list to try. And I’ve heard so many people talk about that Tarte concealer that I now feel like I’m missing out not having tried it yet. Can’t wait for your 2018 favorites!

      Thank you so much! Yeah the Too Faced one is fab and very hydrating. It does seem like everyone talks about the Tarte one, it’s a good concealer. Thank you!xx

    • 14th January 2019 / 2:18 pm

      Once I figured out how to make the Tarte Shape Tape work for me, I loved it! Ah I would love to try Hourglass, everything they do looks so good xx

    • 14th January 2019 / 2:18 pm

      It’s my favourite, it’s so hydrating and my foundation always looks so nice on top of it xx

  13. 13th January 2019 / 4:19 am

    I have a Charlotte Tilburry lip lustre I won in a giveaway and I’m sad I’ve nearly finished it – they are such a fun gloss! 🙂
    I should really check out that tarte concealer too, I’ve read lots of good things about it 🙂

    Hope that you are having a lovely weekend 🙂 We’ve been enjoying family time since hubby got back from his overseas trip yesterday 🙂

      Thank you, and I hope you are too. Enjoy the family time xx

    I have to try the TF primer, I’ve heard so many great things about it. I love the Tarte Shape Tape concealer as well! Your Nan is so cute, such a lovely pic! Loved this post x

      I love it! It’s my favourite primer. Glad you like it too. Thank you so much xx

  15. 14th January 2019 / 3:43 pm

    omg, I love all the things you’ve chosen for your favorites! I love tarte shape tape, it’s been my die hard concealer for almost 2 years now! My sister actually is the one who owns the hangover primer, and i’ve been dying to get my hands on it for myself, because it’s so hydrating and does wonders to my dry skin! I’ve actually never tried the laura mercier powder or that specific colourpop eye shadow palette, but I’ve heard great things about that setting powder, and I love most if not all of the colourpop eye shadow palettes I own! Great post Hannah 🙂 xxx
