December Beauty Buys

To say farewell to 2015 and welcome the new in a good vibe I chose three products that helped me create a natural glowing complexion and that made me feel fancy, glamorous and polished.
1.Nothing speaks the holidays better than gold, right? Gold nails are glamorous yet understated. They’re attention-grabbing, but in a classy way.   Anny's "Kiss the winner" is a luxe, buttery gold with shimmer and sheen, but with enough pigment to keep it opaque. The  brush makes application easy and streak-less, though this formula is a bit thick and has a longer dry time than other nailpolishes of the same brand. I didn't wear any top coat and it has lasted five days without chipping. The rich, impactful color was the perfect complement to the pink coloured champagne that I held on my flute at midnight.

2. I'm always in for healthy glowing skin and the Pure Color All-Over Illuminator by Estée Lauder comes in a metallic cream highlight tube that features some beautiful golden accents. The twist up mechanism is very handy as well. It applies almost like a gel, gliding effortlessly across the cheekbones[where I use it, though it can also be used on your body], blending easily . The pinkish bronzy gold  is really flattering for most skin tones and looks natural. A must-have!

3. I absolutely love L'oréal Punky Manga mascara that makes my eyelashes look amazing - so dark and volumizing! I am an absolute mascara hoarder so I have to try almost every new mascara that I can find. This one has such a nice luscious rich / jet black formula and a fantastic wand/ brush that travells up my lashes from root to tip in an even-ish manner yet grouping lashes together to give me an amazingly voluminous fringe. It has a wet formula so it clumps, but that is the whole point to this mascara, so you have to expect a wet formula. I found it did take a while to play about and get my lashes exactly how I wanted them due to it going on so thick but when I did, I found the end result was fantastic. 


  1. Adorei a cor do verniz, normalmente os dourados não me seduzem, mas esse tem um tom lindo.

  2. as cor do esmalte e do batom são mesmo lindas, beijinhos!


  3. Hello my dear Aida! those are truly great buys and definitely Id love to try them too, especially the mascara (have heard a lot of how good it is) and the highlighter (a must-have indeed). Hope the 2016 kicked off at the best my friend, hugs! xo
