January Favourites

 




Goodbye January, hello February, the month of romance, red nails and flowers...
 
I have been loving a few brand new beauty products this month but have also dug out a couple of old favourites of mine. I love rediscovering make up from my stash such as my Makeup Revolution pallet. I have been lusting over the Naked pallets yet again, but I seem to have spent quite a few pennies on beauty products this past month and remembered that I had bought this dupe pallet from Makeup revolution about six months ago. I don't know why I haven't used this more! I love all of the natural and neutral tones of the purple shades. There is a mixture of matte and shimmer colours and I have especially been loving the two shades, two colours in from the left, and the fourth shade in from the right. The pigmentation and longevity of this pallet is amazing especially considering the price. If you are looking for a cheap alternative to a Naked pallet or just wanted to try some new eye shadow shades I would really recommend trying out one of these.
 
I have really been enjoying my new MUA Lip Liner this month. I won't go on about it too much as I have already written a full post about it here if you fancy reading about it in more detail. It is a fantastic little liner which is only £1 and works great on the outer line and as a full lip coverage along side and without lip stick and lip pencils. It is a great addition to my make up bag and I will definitely be experimenting with other lip liners in the future. Along side this lip liner I have also been loving the latest Nars product to hop into my shopping basket which is my Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien. This little beauty hasn't left my handbag since I've bought it, it is the perfect shade and texture for on the go daily use. Due to the satin aspect it is soft and nourishing on the lips with the right amount of a natural rose-y colour - perfection! I have written a full review here if you would like to read more.

I have also really been loving my Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow foundation in Ivory and I actually cannot believe that I have never written a full review of this product, when it is one of my staples and definite go to's in the make up world. This is a fantastic foundation that offers a really full yet lightweight coverage, hiding most, if not all imperfections, yet feels like there is nothing on your skin. I have been wearing this almost daily of late and I forgotten how much I love it. Speaking of foundation, the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush has revoltionalised the application of my base products. Again I have already written a full review here, and so I won't go into too much detail. This brush has been fantastic to buffer in my foundation that gives a lot more of a flawless finish, almost making my skin look photo-shopped!

I was given one of these mini Cath Kidston Hand Creams in my stoking for Christmas. You can read what else I got for Christmas here. It is a really cute little cream with the typical CK flowery design. It has a lovely light floral scent which gently lingers on the skin. It is extremely nourishing and soaks into the skin like a dream. It doesn't sit on the skin or make my hands sticky or slimy which is great because I cannot stand hand creams that take forever to soak in. It is such a cute little size for me to pop into my handbag.
