January Favorites

Hello my lovelies,

So January is normally a time when it is all doom and gloom and New Year resolutions flop and it’s just pretty miserable. For me, I have had a pretty incredible month both personally and blogging wise and I couldn’t be happier.

I have been loving quite a lot of different products whether they are new or rediscovered products that I have fallen back in love with…

Zoevea – Naturally Yours Eyeshadow Palette See Here

I have had this in my collection for around 6 months now and I am well and truly impressed. I am a natural eyeshadow kind of girl and I never really shy away from my comfort zone which obviously why I picked this palette up. They are all pretty shimmery shades and they are incredibly pigmented.

These seriously compete with the likes of Urban Decay, they are pretty impressive. I have used this palette nearly every day of this month and I cannot stop using it! They are perfect shades to wear on their own or to build up and create a more bold look. I cannot wait to get my hands on some more Zoevea eyeshadow palettes!

Charlotte Tilbury – The Dolce Vita Eyeshadow Palette See Here

Another eye shadow palette I have been absolutely loving is from Charlotte Tilbury. I won’t say too much on this as a review will be going up on my blog about it in a lot more depth but my oh my its a beauty. I always wear this when I am going somewhere a little special and the quad just creates the most beautiful smokey eye look.

I have two of these palettes now and this is by far my favourite, these colours are slightly out of my comfort zone and slowly I am trying new shades and this was the perfect way to push me in the right direction! If you do not own this palette then you should go buy it because it is truly amazing!

NARS – All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation in Mont Blanc See Here

This is is also a recent purchase that I had been eyeing up for quite some time. I went into the lovely Space NK to get colour matched and I instantly fell in love. I suffer with oily skin sometimes so this is perfect as it is more of a matte finish. This literally feels like I am not wearing anything and it stays on all day!

I don’t wear this every day as I leave it for more special occasions as I am happy using drug store foundations on a day to day basis. A review for this product will also be live on my blog soon to give you a true indication of what I think along with the draw backs as nothing is perfect! Just know that I absolutely love it and I am so happy I have this in my life!

Jo Malone – English Pear and Freesia Candle See Here

So this scent is heaven to me, I actually have the perfume which I mentioned in my Top 3 – Perfumes. Because I loved the perfume so much I decided to buy the candle form. I have had this sitting on display for quite some time because it looked too pretty and expensive to burn. However when the new year came I thought sod it I brought it to burn not to look at and I am so glad I made that decision

The scent fills the room instantly, it feels like I am at a spa and I feel well and truly relaxed when I am burning this. You don’t have to burn it for very long either as the scent it pretty powerful. I am awful at describing scents so the link above will help you with what it smells off because I am rubbish!

I am going to be extremely sad when this runs out but I think the scent will remain in the pot for quite some time after! Jo Malone really do some incredible scents, if you have never been into a store I would really recommend you do its a lovely experience!

L’Oreal – Pure Clay Detox Mask see here

The post before this was actually a review on this product, see here so I won’t repeat myself but I would just add I have recently recommended this to my mum and she loves it! I am slowly telling every one I know to buy this face mask as it really is a game changer!

Kiko – Pure Clean Cleansing Milk and Tonic Lotion See Here

I have been loving this product for quite some time now but even more so in the month of January. Recently I have become a little lazy with removing my make up and not wanting to go through the process of using a hot cloth cleanser, which is where this product comes in for me.

I will not use cleansing wipes and I feel for my foundation and face make up my Garnier Micellar Water doesn’t get into my skin deep enough to clean the skin. With this being a cleansing milk and toner in one this cleanses and tones all in one hit – winning! At the moment as I am so busy anything to cut corners but not disrupt my skincare routine too much is a bonus. This product leaves my skin feeling so soft and I always feel that I am left with super clean skin afterwards. I have brought bottles of this stuff and long may it continue!

YSL  – Mascara Volume Effect Faux Cils See Here

So I had never heard of this mascara until I opened my present on Christmas day to find my lovely boyfriend went to a YSL counter and chose it out for me. I am totally impressed by this product, normally I am a little worried about trying a high end mascara and not liking it but I have fallen in love. I use this near enough every day and I don’t think I could be without it.

I have short stubby lashes so anything that is lengthening and volumising is a winner for me. This product does both and it really is a false lash effect like the name suggests. Keep your eyes peeled for a full review of this on my blog as I have so much to say about this product! Well done to my boyfriend, Tom for picking this out for me!

  1. Oooh I’ll be keen for your review of the Nars foundation! I have super oily skin too and I’m on a constant search for a lightweight but long lasting foundation.
