December Humble Beauty #49

This month has been chock full of beauty goodies! 
Lets start with two VoxBoxes I got c/o Influenster this month:

The first one I received is the Loreal "Pure-Sugar Scrub",
I was excited to try this face scrub, and let me tell you, it is AH-MAZING!
They sent me the kiwi one to try out. It smells sweet, does a great job at exfoliating the skin 
and leave me feeling moisturized and ready for the day! 
I love it! 

The second VoxBox I was sent to review was the Loreal "New Elvive" hair mask, 
just in time too because I ran out of my last one recently, 
I like this too, it is moisturizing and smells nice too! 
You go Loreal, killing it with these Influenster boxes! 

In case you were wondering how Influenster works, 
here is a little graphic they send with their VoxBoxes:

 I have been enjoying this month's Sephora Play bag too! 
I really love the Makeup Forever "Hot Red" lipstick, 
it is such a great red, stays on for a long time, and I wore it all Christmas weekend

This month's Ipsy was pretty good too,
I love the Ofra Lipstick in "Ipsy Unzipped" it is a great formula and shade!
Also loving the Lottie London polish in "Riot" I wore it HERE:

I also took the opportunity to restock my "Hot Damn" lip crayon from beabombshellcosmetics 
with their $2 single items sale before Christmas
{worn HERE}

I love this "Hot Damn" shade, it is a great red! 
I finally got myself the "Ruby Woo" shade from Mac this holiday season too, 
I love this mini-version! 
{Worn HERE}

With some of my Christmas $$ I decided to try this "Bomb Baby Mini Lip and Face Set" 
I was excited to try these products because I have heard a lot of hype about them, 
and let me tell you first hand... THEY ARE INCREDIBLE!! 
I am obsessed with the lipgloss and the highlighter is incredible on the skin! 
Seriously. So GOOD! 

Before Christmas I ordered a few single shadows from Devinah Cosmetics
 I got: Lucretia, Push, Capri, and Naevia

I love them all!
Such great matte shades, especially Lucretia, 
I find myself adding this color into almost every look these days, 

It was the red and blue shades in the Dream St. Kathleen Lights x Colourpop palette
 that caught my eye too, but I wasn't too sure about getting it.
 I decided to when I saw these swatches on Katrina @treeeenz on Twitter:

I love everything Kathleen Lights puts out, it is all just so good! 
{Especially her Morphe palette! That is a favorite!} 
So needless to say:

 First impressions were that it was a lot smaller than I was expecting,
but it is beautiful!
The blue shades are a little messy,
 but I absolutely LOVE the kaleidoscope shade (bottom left corner) 
swatching it does not do it justice, 
it is my favorite shade in the palette and I would buy it just for that color! 

I also have been loving Abigail Brion on YouTube
I loved her two looks with the Dream St. Kathleen Lights x Colourpop palette

& I want to recreate this one, as seen on her instagram (ab_ducted)
possibly for NYE tomorrow! 

She is also the reason why I finally made the leap 
and purchased the Pinky Rose "Bright Lights Palette",
I was waiting for it to be back in stock, 
especially since I am totally in love with the Pinky Rose "Runway" palette 
that I got last month from Pinky Rose

I mean look at those bright swatches! 

& this look from @itslohollywood as seen on PinkyRoseCosmetics' Instagram:

It is so bright and beautiful! 

I also love this bright makeup look that Stephanierobin posted on Instagram:

Also loving this green makeup look posted by itskandl on Instagram

When I saw these swatches of the HUDA "Electric Obsessions"
I knew I was adding this beauty to my Christmas Wishlist: 

So happy Charlie got it for me for Christmas! 
I love it! Especially the yellow and red shades! 

I have been completely obsessed with yellow, orange and red eyeshadows these days, 
I think I will do a little Z-Palette re-organization and break down on the blog soon 
and list all these babies out in their own post! 

As for my monthly wishlist:

Do I need anymore eyeshadow, no. 
Yes I do!
👀 on jordandenenyc on Instagram:

After checking out their Instagram, I also want these three shades:
Luck Dragon 

& I know that the Anastasia Subculture Palette has gotten such mixed reviews,
 but these swatches by mimera929 on Instagram make me want to try it all over agin! 
& it on sale on Sephora for $34

I am also so intrigued by the Morphe "39A Dare To Create Eyeshadow Palette" it looks so beautiful! 
Especially that green shade in the middle! 
I am trying to convince myself that my PinkyRose "Runway" palette is chock full of that shade 
and that I don't need another palette...

I also want this Essie polish in "Social Lights", 
such a pretty duo chrome color

& this month's empties: 
bath empties: Celavi face mask in "Cucumber" and "Avocado"- I love these! I get them from the Korean H-Mart grocery store for like $1 each / Privai "aqua gel masque" I got this as a sample and I don't know how I feel about it, its not my kind of face mask I guess / Dr. Teals Pure Epsom Salt in "Comfort & Calm with Chamomile" and Dr. Teals Utra Moisturizing Foaming Bathing in "Super Moisturizer Avocado Oil"- love both of these, they make for a wonderful bath and I enjoy using them / Gold Bond Ultimate "Radiance Renewal" lotion- I got this as a sample and my husband loves it, he never uses lotion but loves this and says it helped with his itchy winter skin / "Tea Tree Oil Shampoo" c/o Maple Holistic- I really enjoyed this shampoo, it left my hair feeling very clean and kept it clean (my hair usually gets very oily) for days! / Loreal EverCream "Renourishing Butter"- I got this in an Influenster VoxBox and I loved it, it lasted forever. / Thann "Aromatherapy Conditioner"- I love the way this smells, reminds me of my honeymoon because it was at our hotel in Alaska / Loreal Superior Preference "Burgundy 4B Cooler" hair color- I love this color but it did not take on my dark hair, only on my roots so now I have black hair with burgundy roots, which I am kinda digging, not going to lie / Shea Moisture "Coconut & Shine Curl & Shine Shampoo" I liked how this smelled but my hair has no curl to it so it's not really for me. 

beauty empties: Sugarbearhair "Hair Vitamins"- these taste amazing, not sure if they work because this was a very small sample but I enjoyed them! / Wet n wild "photofocus foundation" in "soft ivory" - I am not sure if this was the right shade but it was okay, I would try this again but it does smell like paint... / Seche Vite Top Coat- I love this stuff, it is a must have. It really does work but when it gets thick it is so hard to use, I got a fresh bottle and am loving it all over again! / Air Repair "Super-Hydrating Eye Cream"- this was nice but I don't really see a big difference in eye creams / Clinique Happy- I love this perfume but apparently I had this little one for a little too long, it started to not smell as good / NYC Sun n Bronze powder- I like this for all over the face glow / It Cosmetics "Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder"- I accidentally tried to depot this into a Z-palette and it kinda fell apart so I added it to my loose finishing power and have been enjoying it like that / Caudalie Vine[Activ] Serum- I enjoyed this serum while it lasted, not sure about "Glow Activating" but it wwas nice / Amazingly Beautiful Night Oil c/o Trusted Health Products- I really enjoyed these products! Really made my face feel soft / Make Up For Ever "Step 1"- this was such a nice primer especially on days where my skin was red and irritated / Too Faced "Better Than Sex" mascara- this is one of all time favorite mascaras, it is so good! / IGK "Rich Kid" Coconut Oil Gel- I liked this, it smelled nice in my hair / Milani "Bella Mandarin"- I love this eyeshadow, one of my favorite crease colors, I already have a back up, the packaging broke when I had a little product left so I added it to a blush and have been using it that way, this shade is great for everything! / Soap & Glory "Sexy Mother Pucker" in "Nudist" I love this gloss, I got it in a holiday set next year and can't believe I actually used it all up! /  Wet n Wild "Crème brûlée"- This is my must have shade for my eyebrow and under eye area, I have back ups upon back ups   

Makeup Remover Wipes: Celavi Apricot makeup remover wipes- these smell so nice and do a nice job taking off my makeup / e.l.f. Makeup Remover Cleansing Cloths- I love these. They are amazing, the best ones I have used yet! Will repurchase! 

Candles: "Autumn" from Bath & Body Works- I got this a couple of years ago and I enjoyed it a lot! Smells wonderful! / I got these three plaid candles from the dollar spot at Target {$3 each} I loved them all! & I get to reuse these cute tins all season!

What a great month for beauty!
I can't believe I got three new makeup palettes,
