Monthly favourites are one of my favourite kinds of posts to read, probably for the same reasons I like what's in my bag posts - because I'm nosey! But here are my January favourites, a little late, but they made it!
I was late jumping on to the Revlon ColorStay bandwagon but I was at a little designer outlet with my boyfriend and spotted the Revlon store. This little beauty was £7, a price I couldn't really say no to. My shade is Ivory and it matches me perfectly which is nothing short of a minor miracle. Usually most drugstore foundations are far too orange for me even in the lightest shade. The coverage is perfect, I don't find it too heavy & I don't even really mind the lack of pump either. All round thumbs up.
Natural Nymph from ELF has been my favourite lipstick this month. I like the formula, it's not drying and the colour is the perfect nude for my skintone. All that and it's £3.50 which is a complete bargain. I can see me repurchasing this over and over.
This lipgloss set from Benefit was in the Boots sale after Christmas & because I love Benefit products I couldn't resist. The colours are super pretty too. In the top right picture we have from left to right - Zone Out, Friends in High Places & Fresh Squeezed. In the bottom right picture we have also from left to right - I'm with the Band, Kiss You & Almost Famous. I've been wearing Zone Out the most paired with Natural Nymph lipstick. They smell really nice, like Peaches, & they're just the right amount of sticky. My love of Benefit products continues!
I'm not really a huge eye shadow wearer but with the upcoming release of the Alice in Wonderland Urban Decay book of shadows (which I so desperately want probably more so because it's Alice!) I've told myself if I really think I'll use it then I can have it. It's also given me the opportunity to show some love for this eye trio from the Body Shop which I actually think is a really lovely product. It's quite shimmery which I really like & the colours are beautiful and really emphasize my blue eyes. I definitely need a decent eye primer - another reason to pick up the book of shadows me thinks?
Another ELF product I really rate are the studio range of brushes. This is the powder brush that I use for applying blusher. For me it's the perfect shape and it's flat top allows me buff my blush in which is especially useful when working with loose mineral blushes.
The cold winter months call for bubble baths more often! I've raved about Naked Bodycare products before and this bath foam is no exception. Gives lots of bubbles, smells gorgeous, leaves my skin feeling soft & it's got no nasties in it. Perfect!
My boyfriend's lovely parents bought this for me for Christmas. I was so excited opening this as I'd been lusting over it for ages! How gorgeous is that bottle?!
Eyeko's lilac nail polish has been injecting my life with a little bit of spring/summer a few months early. I ♥ it. I think it's the most beautiful colour and it only takes 2 coats which suits my lack of patience when it comes to waiting for my nails to dry.
So those have been my favourites over the month of January. What products have you been loving?
