January 2015 Favourites

Jo malone wood sage and sea salt

This was gifted to me from my boyfriend for christmas and I have been using it constantly eversince. As you can tell by the picture, there is still nearly the full bottle left because a couple of spritz of this is enough. This smells very fresh and I find that it is very lovely for daytime use. I've had a few compliments from when I was out shopping so i know that this quite unique and smells nice to others too. The scent is not too overpowering yet it lasts for quite a long time which is great and I expect nothing less from Jo Malone perfumes.


 Dr Lipp original nipple balm

Cold and windy weather just means my skin and lips are contantly dry. This thick balm has really helped keep my lips hydrated and moisturised. It's thick texture means that it really does remain on the lips for a long time. I tend to put this on before I go to sleep and in the morning my lips are nice and soft ready for my lipstick application. The small plastic tube also allows you to pop it into your handbag effortlessly so it is available on the go when I need some moisture

Rimmel lasting finish foundation - shade 100 ivory

Over the festive period, my skin has broken out quite badly after numerous late nights and consuming a tad too much alcohol for my own good. This foundation has definitley been the only foundation I have used in January. It is a medium to high coverage but it blends into the skin so easily and blends like a dream. The price is very reasonable too so I highly recommend this foundation to everybody. It is a bit of a downside that it is in a glass bottle which does make travelling with it a bit of a hassle. Thumbs up to Rimmel once again for such a great product.

body shop honey bronzer - shade 03

I have just hit pan on this product. Not only is the packaging so pretty resembling honey comb and doesn't dissapear after a few uses, but the colour is really natural and easy to use. I just sweep this on my contour to give a bit more colour to my face after my foundation. The shade is perfect for me as my skin is quite pale and most bronzers look a bit too orange for me. I have totally neglected my favourite NARS laguna for this cheaper alternative. The body shop always has offers out so I recommend picking on of these up to try if you are on the hunt for a nice bronzer.


Rimmel exaggerate lipliner - shade eastend snob

Not willing to part with my money for the Charlotte Tilbury pillowtalk at the moment, I've decided to invest in a well known dupe of it which is this Rimmel one which is so inexpensive in comparison. This colour is so pretty against my skintop and it is so easy to apply. I do have to admit that it is a little bit drying, but I use it in combination with a lipbalm to solve the situation. This colour is perfect for everyday wear. Kind of neutral your lips but better kind of colour.

seche vite dry fast top coat

Chipped nails and dry cuticles are not a good look when the weather is dry and it is hard to maintain your hands to a good standard. However, I have discovered this Seche Vite and I don't think that I would ever go back to any other top coats. This just adds the final finishing touches to any nail polishes giving it that extra shine and long lasting power. I find that when I use seche Vite, my nail polish lasts so much longer and it motivates me to keep my hands nice and moisturised to keep my hands looking in good condition.

MUA powder blusher - shade lolly

Being a big fan of orange shades, I just had to pick up this inexpensive blush by MUA. I have tried MUA eyeshadows in the past and I am truley amazed by their quality for the price. This powder blush I must admit is very powdery and one touch of the brush gives so much fall out. However, it is highly pigmented and applies onto the skin very well and non patchy. It doesn't last as long as my other blushers but it fades nicely throughout the day. For the price of this, I am happy with it and it has constantly been in my makeup bag for the month of january.
