It is no secret that I love all things beauty.  I especially love trying new products and then sharing the ones that I think are awesome with others!!

In this post I’m sharing all of the makeup and skincare goodies I tried and enjoyed in December.  If you find something you love, tag me on your social media (@lipsbynic) so I can see what you snagged!

Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Mascara

I love mascara – I don’t think I will ever be loyal to just one because I love trying new mini-sizes at Sephora all the time!  But the Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir mascara is probably one of the best ones I’ve used EVER.

If you like dramatic, dark black, voluminous and long lashes, you will not be disappointed with this one!  I especially love this one for date night 🙂

Davines Oi All in One Milk

My uh-mazing hairstylistCarly Zanoni (check out her awesome feed on Insta @the.blonde.chronicles !) told me this is one of her favorite products and now I’m hooked!

You spray it on after you get out of the shower, comb through, and that’s it.  It is lightweight so it doesn’t make my hair greasy, but it hydrates and makes my hair super soft – it smells so good too!

Buxom Powerplump Lip Balm

Omggggg this is so good!  I have the color “Big O” and it is the prettiest sheer pink.  The lip balm is moisturizing plus plumping AND it reacts with the pH level in your lips to create a custom shade.  LOVE.

Mount Lai De-Puffing Jade Facial Roller

I’ve had this roller for a while but in December I started using it every morning  and it is now my favorite way to start the day!  I actually keep it in a little mini-fridge in my closet so that it is nice and cold (totally optional but way refreshing) and after washing my face and applying serum, I roll my face with this and am de-puffed and ready to go!

Olaplex Bond Maintenance Shampoo and Conditioner

My girl Carly suggested Olaplex shampoo and conditioner and I LOVE!  I am super picky about shampoo and don’t like it to feel heavy, or like it isn’t really cleaning my hair.  But, I have dyed my hair blonde for years so I need to keep it moisturized and healthy and I’ve been stoked with this duo!
