January Beauty Faves 2016! x
Hey lovelies, how you doin? *smirks like Joey from Friends*;)
Sorry for being inactive on both my blog & Instagram the past week, I haven't been 100% well but I'm all better now so there's no excuse what.so.ever, time for me to get back on track...
Considering I haven't done a favourites post in ages and I've been loving a lot of things in this past month of January, I thought I would share them with you and tell you about all the little things that have been making me happy this month...
Since I've got a bit of a routine going with my skin at the moment I have been sticking to the same concealer, foundation, powder, etc just to be safe from any breakouts so I haven't any new faves there but I have been lovinggg Benefits What's Up Highlighter! It's a soft-focus golden higligter that I apply just at the top of my cheekbones and blend out with my Real Techniques Duo Fiber face brush and woah. That highlighter POPS. The only downside to this is mine is a mini/travel size that I recieved from the Benefit 12 Days of Christmas Advent Calender so I think I may have to repurchase this before the summer, woops:)
My next two products have been used every day this month and I'm pretty sure it will continue for the next couple of weeks before I decide I need to start obsessing over some new lip products. These are the Loreal Color Riche lipstick in Doutzen's Nude (a girly pink colour) and Soap&Glorys Sexy Mother Pucker lipgloss in Rose and Shine (an equally girly colour). To any tomboy, these two baby pinks together might make you want to hurl, but for me, it makes THE perfect every day lip combo. Together these two products aren't sticky or tacky and the colour isn't so much of a bright barbie pink, but a delicate nude pink (if that makes any sense whatsoever. As you can tell, I'm not very good at describing colours).
Now for the eyes. I'm not entirely sure why but this month I've really gotten into my eyeshadows and I'm kind of loving it, not gonna lie. My go to palette has been the Makeup Revolution Ultra Eyeshadow Palette. This has 32 flawless eyeshadows that are immensely pigmented and vary between beautiful matts and shimmers. It has the golds, the pinky nudes, the dark browns. If (like me) you tend to go head-over-heels for those warm toned colours, this palette is right up your street! Aswell as this, I picked up two of the Kiko Cream Crush lasting Colour Eyeshadows in 05 and 09. These are supposed to be cream eyeshadows but I find that the formulae is more wet and blendable, making them more towards the gel side? It might just be me, but neverheless, these beat the Maybelline 24 Hour Tattoos by a mile. I'm not entirely sure why, but I prefer these so much more and the colour range is stunning, with the two that I picked up being champagney gold & light copper toned, I think it's fair to say I've fallen in love.
Lastly, I grabbed the last Soap&Glory Thick and Fast Mascara in boots, after hearing so many of my friends rave about it, and I can now officially confirm that this mascara is a game changer. It has a fibre wand (which I'm normally not a fan of) but this one somehow lifts my lashes aswell as curling, lengthening and volumizing them. Yep, I know what your thinking..how? Well, I'm not entirely sure what witchcraft Soap&Glory have done, but my lashes are thankful for it!
As I've been ranting on for quite some time now, I'd like to finish off with my 3 random favourites which are:
1. Zoellas Wonderhand Hand Cream
2. Victorio & Lucchino No2 Perfume/Room Spritz
3. Alessia Cara
This month has flown by so quickly and all three of the above have been greatly used, what with all the pampering, spritzing and dancing around my room to Here. Alessia Cara, you are a genius with an amazing voice, thanks for making getting ready in the mornings that slight bit more bearable<3
Sorry this was quite a long one guys but I thought a chatty post was needed since my absence last week. Stay beautiful.
