Another month done and dusted! January is always one of them dull months but luckily I had lots of new products from Christmas and the sales to cheer me up. Here are my top favourites.
I’m definitely one of them bloggers who hoard products and I’m a sucker for good packaging. When Marc Jacobs Decadence was released I immediately knew I needed it in my life. My initial thoughts where, its like a bag?! Seriously it’s so luxurious with the snake-skin and tassel and the fragrance doesn’t disappoint either. Indulge yourself with a sweet smell of palma violets and musky notes.. a dream!
Another one for packaging and celebrity collabs, wow Urban Decay you have done it once again. A palette filled with matte and shimmer shadows all designed with the help of Gwen Stefani. From the gold, black and white packaging to the stunning array of colours, it’s a palette that well and truly compliments their other eyeshadow delights. It’s a must for any girls makeup collection.
In the opening of one door of my Marks and Spencer calendar I come across the Pixi Glow Tonic! The hype around this product was definitely worth waiting for. I’ve used this as part of my skincare routine over christmas and january and so far I’m really impressed how my skin looks especially in this cold weather.
Now I know I’ve just featured Snow Fairy in my current Lush favourites (here) but I couldn’t help but mention it as my Jan favourites. I mean it’s every girls fave bath product over the festive season and we all wish we could have our hands on it all year round. I guess that would take the fun out of owning it right? Only two bottles and I’m all used up. Cry.
I haven’t mentioned much about my Dior Forever foundation in ‘040’ but today I felt it needed a bit of appreciation. It’s kind of a on and off foundation for me, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t sit well with powders ect, maybe because it’s matte. However maybe because my skin is more dry due to the weather I’ve noticed this has worked well so I’ve enjoyed it this month.
You can’t beat a good blusher, for Christmas I got MAC blush in Crisp whites and its the perfect soft pink! It’s matte so sits well but it just adds that subtle pink to the face without the shimmer. It’s definitely a new fave for me, it reminds me of Benefit’s Dandelion.
So I’ve had my eye on the Stila One Step Correct for a while. Mainly because it just looked fascinating and I was intrigued to see how it worked. The colours are meant to reduce redness, dark circles and correct the skintone. Since using it as a base I’ve noticed my redness of spots aren’t as visible and my dark circles look barely noticeable – this is before foundation I’m talking about!! Only need a tiny little pump of it too.
And finally I can honestly say I’ve tried pretty much all YSL‘s mascara range. Although not my true fave, Babydoll is definitely up there with the best mascara‘s I’ve tried. It’s the product that you need to invest in, with most YSL mascara’s, the longer you have them the better they become. When they are a little dry the product feels better on the lashes which means thicker and longer results!
So there you have it, the first month of 2016 over with already. Are any of these your favourite? What were your Jan favourites?
