Monthly Favorites: December 2023 Edition!

Monthly Faves: December 2023!Monthly Faves: December 2023!

Wow, what a year, Beauty Insider Community! I don’t know about you, but reflecting on 2023 makes me realize how many new beauty favorites I’ve discovered (some of those thanks to you!) and how many former favorites have now become current holy grails. There’s nothing like shopping your own stash…. but splurging on some brand-new beauty is pretty fun, too. 😉 I’m so grateful for all of you BIC-ers for sharing your favorites here for all of us to enjoy, all year long!

 

Here are the products I’ve been loving this December:

 

Now it’s your turn! Hit the reply button and tell us which products you’ve picked up the most this December… or even throughout all of 2023. Be sure to tag those products with the “#” symbol (hair, makeup, fragrance, wellness, skincare, etc.)!

Re: Monthly Favorites: December 2023 Edition!

@CynthieLu Thank you ☺️. I actually got my hair cut a few weeks ago and I have been struggling to style it with my new layers. It is a learning curve. I almost wish I didn't cut it lol

Re: Monthly Favorites: December 2023 Edition!

You will get used to it 🩷 @Mellmars1185 It's weird, after a hair cut there is this awkward phase of getting used to it.

It's such a bother. It takes me a week or two to get used to a cut I swear lol 😅

Re: Monthly Favorites: December 2023 Edition!

@AlexBT excellent choices for December!! The contour wand is amazing, I've tried a dupe before and the color was not as good as the CT, so it remains the winner 🏆

Re: Monthly Favorites: December 2023 Edition!

Re: Monthly Favorites: December 2023 Edition!

@jaaayp I've been so curious about trying the brown version of this mascara!! Do you notice a big difference in your overall look when you use brown vs black?

Re: Monthly Favorites: December 2023 Edition!

Tbh, I don't think it's a huge difference @AlexBT 😂 but I have been foregoing eyeliner lately and I find that it looks a little more natural AND I don't notice smudging on the undereye area as I would with a black version of the Too Faced Better Than Sex Volumizing & Lengthening Waterproof Mascara Standard Size Black - 0.27 oz/... 

Re: Monthly Favorites: December 2023 Edition!

Ohhh, pretty faves @jaaayp, do you use this serum and the Biossance rose oil in the same skincare routine? 

Re: Monthly Favorites: December 2023 Edition!

Nooo, not really @itsfi I use the biossance oil maybe like twice a week now, only on the days I don't feel lazy and wanna do the whole guasha routine. I've been using the squalene in the mornings mostly since I have retinol and lactaid serum that I have to rotate during the night time. I really like it though, I know it's not the same thing but I feel like it's a better alternative to hyaluronic acid 🤔

Re: Monthly Favorites: December 2023 Edition!

@jaaayp, some people's skin responds better to squalane oil than to hyaluronic acid so it makes sense you'd reach for it more. Gotta give your skin what it loves. 

Re: Monthly Favorites: December 2023 Edition!

Your choices look so good @jaaayp. I'm a big fan of the chocolatey brown mascaras too. 😊

Lovely choices this month. You know I just saw the contour stick from ABH on an influencers video on IG, they made it look excellent.👌

Re: Monthly Favorites: December 2023 Edition!

I really enjoy it @CynthieLu I wouldn't call it contour though as it claims to be because it's a bit orangey on me but I would pass as somewhere in between a contour and a bronzer. It's like a 2 for one! 😂

Re: Monthly Favorites: December 2023 Edition!

I have two new faves thanks to @TeamBIC !

 

- amika Mini Soulfood Nourishing Mask 3.3 oz/ 100 mL 

 

- Natasha Denona Glam Eyeshadow Palette 

Re: Monthly Favorites: December 2023 Edition!

@Titian06 I recognize those faves! 😉 Glad you're loving them!

Re: Monthly Favorites: December 2023 Edition!

Beautiful favorites @Titian06 ❣️ Glammed up eyes and nourished hair, all courtesy of a festive and fun gratis, 🎁 

Re: Monthly Favorites: December 2023 Edition!

🎉 That's awesome! @Titian06 

Re: Monthly Favorites: December 2023 Edition!

Aww, yay @Titian06 !

Re: Monthly Favorites: December 2023 Edition!

I think I can say we are all pretty grateful for a place to read, share and connect about all the products we love with such awesome people. So a huge thank you, to you and everyone @AlexBT. 💕

 

Your loves list this month is so impressive. I have been wanting to try more from Charlotte Tilbury. This wand looks so good from everyone's posts about it. Maybe in the new year I will get my hands on it. 😊

Re: Monthly Favorites: December 2023 Edition!

@CynthieLu The DM tint is so nice. Lovely to see it make the list. So happy to see it make a favorites list, 👍🏼 

Re: Monthly Favorites: December 2023 Edition!

@CynthieLu that's such a great feeling when you feel like you almost have too many favorites 🙂

Re: Monthly Favorites: December 2023 Edition!

You are soooo right. @CookieGirl1 😍 There were a lot of great products to be found this year. It feels pretty good to have a aresnal of winners. 🙂

Re: Monthly Favorites: December 2023 Edition!

@CynthieLu Yesssss give us alllll the faves!!! That benefit brow pencil is def a holy grail for me... I keep trying different ones to see what else is out there, but the pigment of the benefit one is just unmatched!

 

Funny you mentioned whittling things down because I had a few other CT products I had a hard time choosing from!! I would have also loved to include my all-time fave Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder and a new recent fave, Charlotte Tilbury Eyes To Mesmerize Cream Eyeshadow Oyster Pearl 🙏 Oh, and the blush wands are among my fave cream blushes as well!
