December Beauty Favourites

Hi Everyone,
Firstly Happy New Year!! Sorry for the lack of posts, between college assignments and Christmas I don't think me and Mary have had much time, but hopefully this will be the start of regular blogging. Here's my Monthly Beauty Favourites for December to start it off...
Base:
Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation Light Porcelain
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer Fair
Real Techniques Buffing Brush

The Rimmel foundation Ive worn practically every day in December, sometimes adding a slightly higher coverage foundation to it when i need to but over all this foundation gives quite a good Light to Medium coverage, plus its one of the first drug store foundations Ive found in such a light shade!
Then with the lasting collection concealer I can get a pretty flawless base, I use this under my eyes, around my nose and on any blemishes I may have, it is pretty high coverage but it works brilliantly!
Both buffed in with my Buffing brush and it looks like a second skin, this brush hash just become a holy grail for me, I cant believe I lived without it for so long, I should of given into the hype much sooner!
Eyes:
Urban Decay Naked Palette

Ive re found my love for my Naked Palette, mostly using the shade Half Baked on my Lids, with a little bit of Buck through my crease. Then Creep to softly define my lashes and add a bit of liner. Ive also been using Naked on my brows as it is quite a good match, overall this has been a very multi purpose and useful palette for me last month.
Lips:
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream San Paulo

Then lastly on my lips Ive been loving raspberry red matte lips, and this lip cream goes with it perfectly, complementing that festive gold eye or just going with that natural Bridget Bardot style eye too, plus the matte finnish isnt too drying and lasts relly well on the lips!
Nails:
O.P.I Golden Eye

Ive been in love with this soooo much, I even had to have the tiny little minature, this is from the James Bond Skyfall collection, but it should still be around for a little while longer so snap one up fast! Its been perfect for the party season!

Swatches:

Left to Right: O.P.I Golden Eye, NYX San Paulo, Rimmel Light Porcelain, Collection Fair.
(sorry for the very blurry swatches, i didnt have enough time to get the pictures in a daylight light.)
