Pacifica Power Of Love Natural Lipstick in the shade “Nudie Red”. The color is very pretty; a nude pink-brown. It blends into my lips very well and its semi-matte finish is comfortable to wear. The one thing that puts me off is the smell. It has an aged, chemically scent to it.
BeFine Exfoliating Cleanser (with Brown Sugar) is really nice! The sugar in it is abrasive to start, but quickly dissolves and leaves you with a creamy lather. I really like that the sugar exfoliants do dissolve and that this product is biodegradable! It also smells amazing! Like a really sweet, nutty coffee creamer.
Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eye Shadow Primer. When I first applied this I didn’t think it was anything special. It felt exactly the same as any other eye primer I have used. It didn’t make the shadow color pop much. But at the end of the day when I looked close at my lids, there was hardly one little crease. With other primers or no primer at all, I get a gross line of clumped up eyeshadow in my crease after only a few hours. This primer held my shadow in place all day!
RickyCare by Ricky’s NYC Classic 3D Blender. I love makeup sponges and am always happy to try another! This one did not disappoint! It applies my makeup wonderfully. The sponge its self is so soft! It feels like a squishy ball of velvet.
FORMULA X Nail Polish in Revved Up is the prettiest rose gold color! Formula X has great quality nail polish and amazing colors! This one could have gotten by with just one coat, but as you can see, the second coat made a bit brighter.
I am really happy with the contents of this bag! I am going to enjoy every single one of these items for a long time! My favorite is the nail polish, of course. What was your favorite from your December bag? Please tell me in the comments.

Eyeshadow is a beautiful addition to any makeup look whether you go for neutral shades or bright colors. Or maybe you prefer cream shadows over powder. For many of us, no matter the amount of effort we put into blending our beautiful pigments, it always creases. Every time we close our eyes the is a nice thick band of clumpy eyeshadow in the crease of out eyelid. Yum. My current go-to product, to avoid that clumpy issue, is Tarte’s Colored Clay CC Eye Primer Stick…read more
Vapour Beauty makes beauty products from non-toxic, natural, organic and mineral ingredients. All of their products are a beautiful quality inside beautiful packaging. On their website, there is a list of dupes where you can find clean replacements for your favorite cult products. Their Lipstick, in the color Purr, is a dupe for Nars’ Lipstick in the color Sex Machine. I’ve had heart eyes for Nars’ Sex Machine for quite a while but did not want the less than desirable ingredients. I’m so glad I found Vapour’s Purr…read more
