December 2021 Humble Beauty Opinion #97

My December Humble Beauty Opinion!
My monthly subscriptions, purchases, reviews, wishlists & empties!

Those last couple weeks of holidays have thrown off my blog schedule 
for my December Humble Beauty Opinion but today is the day!

As per usual lets start with my monthly subscription to Ipsy!
This month is a pretty good one!
Still have to try a lot of these products but I am excited about the assortment,
especially the Tarte "SEA Super Curl" mascara {I picked this one}

I did try the Belle En Argent polish in "Already Raining" & I am loving it!
Much more than I thought I would when I saw it in the bottle!

Did a little add-on shopping from Ipsy this month, 
Happy to have a new Anastasia Beverly Hills Eye Primer 
since I finally used up my Lorac one,
I am LOVING the Makeup Shack beauty blender sponge, 
it is a really good one!

Ipsy also sent me this shattered PYT quad, although I don't think I ordered it??


Either way it was a mess

Other purchases from this month:
Picked up a Becca "Ultimate Coverage" foundation in "Linen" from TJMaxx for $11,
I am liking this, I have been using a lot of BB and CC creams 
& this is very high coverage but I like mixing it with a darker BB cream to thin it out 
and make its closer shade.
Also got this Lipstick Queen lip in "Highway 66" for $2.50 from TJMaxx,
I am a sucker for these color changing products!

Charlie also got me this Merry & Bright skin care trio from Trader Joe's,
loving these products, 
especially the Vitamin C Serum, I had a sample from their advent calendar and used it up!

I got a lot of beauty goodies for Christmas!
From my mother-in-law:
Most excited about the Too Faced "Christmas Cookie House Party" palettes!
Also the Aveda x 3.1 Phillip Lim brush is SO GOOD!
Lots of goodies to play with!

I also got lots of "take care of mommy" gifts!
These are from Charlie's aunt:

& I got some mommy goodies from my aunts!

I also got my Lights Lacquer polishes that I ordered from their Black Friday sale!

Got some goodies on my monthly makeup wishlist!

Speaking of Lights Lacquer
I am intrigued by their "Winter Break Trio"
but not enough to purchase at this point...
That lilac reminds me of my new Belle En Argent polish in "Already Raining" from Ipsy

I LOVE these MAC Viva Glam x Keith Haring lipsticks!

I want to try this e.l.f "Power Grip Primer" since it is suppose to be comparable 
& I enjoyed the sample that I had

I have also been looking for the Hero. "Rescue Balm" from Target,
but it was sold out when I went shopping.
I saw it on @sabrinky on Tik Tok and I need to try this!

This month's empties, what I used up, loved, hated  
& all my humble opinions in between:
bath: Loreal Feria "Red Velvet"- not my usual hair color but I haven't been able to find my usual Revlon, this was a nice one though! | Glow Organics 9 "Relax + Natural Bath Soak"- this was a nice soak, I think I prefer bubbles but soaks are nice too! | Summer's Eve "Sheer Floral Cleansing Cloths"- these are a must for traveling | Dr. Teal's Body Wash "Sooth & Sleep with Lavender"- I really enjoyed this body wash especially the pump so easy to use! | Lavender Triple Milled Soap from Trader Joes- love this soap, exfoliating and smells nice | Malin + Goetz "Peppermint Bar Soap"- got this from the Graduate Hotel in Nashville and I love these products | Trader's Joe's "Chai Shimmer Body Wash"- got this from the advent calendar and I loved this! Smelled so nice! | Summer's Eve "Aloe Love Cleansing Cloths"- for a morning refresh! | TonyMoly "Minions Blemish Patch"- loved these for some under the skin persistent pimples, so cute with the heart ❤️ design & they worked well!

beauty: Undone Matte "Unfondation Mattetint" in "Cream Light" from Ipsy- I enjoyed this | Lights Lacquer "So Clingy" base coat- I enjoyed this but there is still so much in the bottle that got too thick and hard to use | Lights Lacquer "Nourishing Elixir"- I got this from a trio at least a year ago (prob two)- I LOVE it! It is so good for days when I don't want to fully do a mani and have my nails look perfect, had to get the big one! | Pistachio Oil "Hydrating Hand Cream" from Ipsy- honestly did not like this, the smell was not my favorite and did not find it hydrating for long enough | Trader Joe's Body Butter: "Frosted Cranberry", "Toasted Marshmallow" {LOVED this one, smelled so good I wanted to eat it}, "Citrus & Cedarwood" & "Sugar Plum"- all of these are so good I love them! | Wet n Wild "BrΓ»lΓ©e"- I LOVE this for brow bone and to set under eyes, it is a repurchase over and over again kinda product | Lorac "Behind the Scenes" eyeshadow primer- I have had this for a long time it is a pretty good one, not a fave though | Trader Joe's "Vitamin C Serum"- got this from the Trader Joe's advent calendar and loved it, happy to have a full size | MAC mascara "In Extreme Dimension"- I LOVED this, one of the best mascaras I have used in a while, sad it is done | itCosmetics "Brow Power" in "Universal Taupe"- loved this sample, such a good travel size with the spool on one side, so easy to use | benefit "Precisely, My Brow Pencil" in "3 Warm light brown"- also enjoyed this one but it didn't last as long as I thought it would | benefit the Porefessional "Hydrate Primer"- love all the benefit primers, I have lots of samples to go through before purchasing a full size | Verb "Ghost Oil"- I enjoy this for some shine but it leaked all over my travel bag 😒 

candles: Candle-Lite candles in "Black Widow" & "Poisonous Pumpkin" from Lidl- loved these, obviously a roll over from Halloween but both scents were nice | Candle-Lite in "Milk & Cookies" x2 from Lidl- Loved these for the holidays | BeeCurious 100% Beeswax Candle- we got these as a Christmas gift from a friend (thanks Chuck) and they are made by two of our other friends! Enjoying the lip balm from our gift set too
