Finally! It’s the last day of November which means that December starts tomorrow. I’ve expressed my love for Christmas at more than one occasion, so I’m very excited indeed. That is also why most of my November favourites are related to Christmas.
Urban Decay eye shadow in Relish: I’m obsessed with red eye shadow and this one is stunning! It’s so pigmented and blendable, and it complements my Juvia’s Place The Saharan palette perfectly.
Gingerbread: Gingerbread is one of my favourite Christmas treats. In Denmark we call it ‘honningkage’ (directly translated: honey cake), and it usually comes in the shape of a heart. I’ve already eaten quite a few ‘honningkager’, or ‘honninghjerter’ (honey hearts), this past month.
Arthur Christmas (film): I’ve watched a lot of Christmas films in November, and Arthur Christmas was my favourite. I hadn’t watch it before, and loved it! If you love Christmas and you love cartoons this is a must-watch film.
The Lake House (film): I’ve also watched other films that are not Christmas films this past month. I hadn’t heard about The Lake House before, but it was so good! One of the best romantic films I’ve watched in a long time.
The Christmas Song – Nat King Cole: The song I’ve listened to the most this past month is without a doubt this Christmas classic. The old, classic Christmas songs are my favourites in general, and this one is just so beautiful and festive!
As the Jeffree Star Cosmetics fan I am, I was very excited about this years holiday collection. It’s called the Jeffree Star Holiday Glitter Collection and it has the most beautiful packaging! Definitely my favourite packaging Jeffree Star has done so far. I usually buy Jeffree Star Cosmetics on Beautybay.com, but the collection is not on the webside yet. I really wanted to make sure that I got a couple of products from the collection, so I bought these two lip products on the Danish wedside House of Stars. This webside did not have the entire collection, and there’s another Velour liquid lipstick I really want, and maybe one of the lip scrubs, so I hope that Beautybay gets the collection at some point. But let’s talk about the two beautiful lip products I already got.
First of all, the pink packaging with silver glitter and holographic writing makes my make-up loving heart skip a beat. I know it makes it hard to see the colour properly, but I will obviously post pictures of me wearing it at some point. The Velour liquid lipstick I purchased is called Poinsettia, and it’s a gorgeous metallic red. Perfect for the holiday season. I can’t wait to wear this shade!
I also bought my first ever Lip Ammunition, and the reason why I had to have it is because it is the ‘stick’ lipstick version of my favourite liquid lipstick, Redrum. This Lip Ammo has a satin finish and I hope I’ll love it as much as I love the liquid lipstick version.
Lastly, I just wanted to show you the cardboard packaging the lipsticks came in. They are holographic and I tried to capture it with my camera. So pretty!
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I hadn’t worn MAC’s Up the Amp lipstick in ages, and it used to be a favourite of mine, so I thought it was about time I wore it again.

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. Another eye look using the Juvia’s Place The Saharan palette. I’m so in love with this palette!

Another year, another stunning MAC holiday collection. The collection this year is called the Snowball collection, and it has the most beautiful gold packaging and the powder products are embossed with snowflakes. So pretty!
For once I decided to buy on of the single eye shadows in the collection, because look how beautiful it is! It’s an Extra Dimension eye shadow in the shade Stylishly Merry which is described as a gold shimmer, but it has a stunning pink shift to it. It is very shimmery indeed and had quite a bit of fallout, but it looked beautiful. I think I’ll try it with Fix+ next time to see if that prevents the fallout.
I just had to have one of the Impalpable Glare powders/opalescent face powders, and I chose the gold one called Happy Go Dazzingly. It’s a super pretty, wearable gold shade, and the pigmentation is very nice. It’s not the most blinding highlighter in the world, but it looks beautiful on the skin.
And of course I had to get one of the lipsticks. I picked up the shade Shimmer & Spice which is described as a dusty rose with shimmer, and it is gorgeous! It has a frost finish, so it’s a little sheer, but if you fill in your lips with a lipliner and put this on top, you’ll get the most stunning shimmery lip.
