Decemeber 2012 Favorites: NYX Shadow Trio in Dune, Moroccan Oil & Hard Candy Tiki

Like many of you, I love December because it is the holiday season.  The decorations are beautiful, the smells bring back good memories, and hopefully you get to spend more time with the ones you love.  I am only doing a few standout products this month.
  1. NYX Eyeshadow Trio in Dune
  2. Organix Moroccan Argan Oil (I get mine for Coarse Hair)
  3. Hard Candy Baked Bronzer in Tiki

NYX Eye Shadow Trio in Dune:  This is a perfect everyday palette.  Really great pigmentation, creamy, blends easy, and economical.  Normally about $6 in the US and often at Ulta to can get buy 1 get 1 50% off and use a $3.50 off coupon that they almost always have on their website.
  • Shimmery Blush Peach 
  • Warm Shimmery Medium Brown with a hint on Bronze
  • Shimmery Creamy/Champagne

Organix Moraccan Argan Oil:  I use this on my hair toward the ends when it is wet to protect my hair from the heat of the hair dryer & I use these on my hair toward the ends when it is dry to add moisture and a light shine (it does not weigh my hair down).  It also helps minimize static. I get mine at Ulta but have seen it at drug stores too. This product is not tested on animals.

Hard Candy Baked Bronzer in Tiki: It is more of a beautiful shimmery "I been kissed by sun" look, than a true bronzer.  I use it to highlight the top of my cheekbones.  This would be beautiful over eyeshadow too.  Hard Candy is sold at Walmart.  It is $6.00 and you get a lot of product 12.5g or .44oz.  Plus they do not test on animals:)  You could even use it as an eyeshadow.

 These are a solid swatch with my finger.  Clearly as a highlighter on the cheek you would dust in on.

Hope you love these like I do.
