New in: November & December 2017

November and December haul

As the year came to an end, I realized I hadn't shared my latest New in for the past two months. 
Whoops. I'll fix that right away.

I searched for the photos and let me present you what I got or bought in the months of November and December of 2017.

Products that I got are marked with a *.

New in: November & December 2017

November was a calm month most of the time and I mostly remember what I got in December. So I guess pictures will guide us ...

Back in December, we had a meeting (Lovers of Asian Cosmetics facebook group) which I gladly attended for the 2nd year in a row.

There I got a bunch of goodies (pictured below). Some of them are still waiting for some love, others I've already used up. 

November and December haul

Can I say that I'm excited about the boob mask? Yes, yes?! Well, I AM!

Afrodita Cosmetics Shower Gel and Lotion

Kozmetika Afrodita* kindly sent me a duo pack of a shower gel & body lotion
And at the same time, I got a package from Oriflame* which contained two nail polishes

Catrice Kaviar Gauche

Because I was excited when I had the chance to see the Catrice Kaviar Gauche* line, I was even more excited when I received three products from the line. I got a highlighter brush, a highlighter (which is huge) and a brush pouch. All three are really pretty!


In December my Black Friday orders slowly started to come in. I got my Deciem order which included several products (two of their sets).

Derma E Vitamin C Concentrated Serum

In December I also went to a moderator party which included us moderators of a pretty large cosmetics group on facebook. There we received some cosmetics goodies which I'm already using!

The Derma E Vitamin C Concentrated serum* and samples were from BeautyBottled.

This year I also decided to be a part of a Secret Santa in out Beauty Bloggers community. 

I was lucky - Maestra was my Secret Santa and she sent me this amazing palette* by Nabla cosmetics. 
I love it and I've been using it daily.

I also ordered a bunch of things from the Black Friday sale on Lič I've got a Nabla liquid lipstick and an OFRA highlighter trio. Both are lovely and the highlighter trio is ultra pigmented.

I also got two beautiful palettes - Makeup Revolution PRO HD* and  I heart makeup Chocolate RoseGold palette*.

Back in November I also got a lovely surprise from Essence. It lit my heart and made me smile. 
I got a small highlighter palette, a glitter lipstick, a cute brush and a lovely pouch*.

But after a day when I decided it's time to go back running, I managed to hurt my muscles and decided to grab this - a massage ball and a magnesium spray. The ball was a suggestion from Nina and it did help quite a bit!

Back in December I also got a lovely surprise from Avon*. I received a facial serum (super excited about it!), a hand cream, a cleansing egg (for brushes) and a sheet mask (can't wait to try it!).
Everything looked so lovely!

Since Ana didn't like the color of the liquid lipstick she got in her box (with an order) she gave it to me. I didn't want to purchase directly from the brand as I am NOT a fan of them, but I heard amazing things about their lipsticks. And that's why I'm super grateful that I got to try the Lime Crime Liquid Lipstick in Pumpkin.*

Can you say that November and December were months where I spent a lot of money on cosmetics? 
Well, yes.

I had a coupon code for 30% off hair care from Star Beauty and decided to see how well will the Bamboo line by Alterna work for my hair. Well, sadly, my hair loves it. It truly does but the prices are extraordinary and I'm not sure if I'll ever purchase the shampoo and balm from them.

In December I also decided that it's time to start using Skinoren again. What for, you may ask yourself. Well, it's simple - I wanted to use it for my acne! As an adult, I still get acne which is ... fun. Not. 

Anyway, I got Skinoren and I've been using it on spots or problematic areas. It's terrible in terms of wear (I can feel some heat and itching on my skin while I'm wearing it) but works wonders for acne.

I am a huge fan of mystery bags and thus I couldn't resist this bag from Essence. I talked about my experience with it here - Essence Made to Sparkle

After the holidays, when I went to visit my friends they gave me this cute present. It's amazing! A Catrice lipstick from an LE, a protein bar and an Essence nail polish with holo glitter!*

And at least - in December I was opening up the ASOS Beauty Advent Calendar. It had 25 windows and I enjoyed it very much. On the photos, you can see a mix of all the products I got
What I love the most? The lip balm, the cleansing oil, Foreo, the brush, the OSKIA mask, The Ordinary Cream and the AHA liquid. Well, I am a fan of other things too, it was such a good calendar!
