January Favourites


This post is a long one so I do apologise in advance, it is a mix between my favourite skincare and makeup bits at the minute.

First up is nail polishes, I bought both ‘Autumn Spice’ and ‘Wild Violets’ of the Revlon Parfumerie range (£6.49) from Boots which you can see the review on my ‘Mini Boots Haul’ post here. I absolutely adore both of these shades and I have been constantly switching between them ever since I purchased them. Both of these nail polishes have definitely creeped on to my bedside table.

My favourite skincare products have to start off with Lush’s 9 to 5 Cleanser (£5.10) is definitely at the top of my favourites list, it feels incredibly gentle on my skin, whilst it moisturises my skin it also removes all the dirt and makeup. I have also been loving Lush Tea Tree Toner Water (£7.95) whilst I have been using this product for the past month or so I definitely have noticed a difference in my skin and less spots. My skin feels fresh and squeaky clean after using this product, I usually use it after using my Lush 9 to 5 Cleanser.

Next up on the skincare list is Lush Enchanted Eye Cream (£12.50) this is definitely my go to product at the minute, I usually store this in the fridge and use it day and night as it makes a difference when cold, it really does freshen and waken me up. Another skincare product that I cannot stop using is Clinique Liquid Soap (£16) I find that this makes my skin feel super clean, without stripping the protective oils which is a bonus.

Now onto makeup, one of my all time favourite blushers is the RMK Matte Shiny Cheeks 01 (£30) from the packaging right down to the blusher I seriously can not find any flaws with this product, it creates a subtle glow on my skin and definitely perks up my face. My other favourite go to blusher ever since October is the Essence Hello Autumn Multi Colour Powder – Autumn in the City (£3.25) the design is just beautiful. The palette is packed full of autumn leaves packed with different shades of whites and browns leaving a gorgeous subtle shimmer on your cheeks. My favourite foundation at the moment has to be Lush’s Jackie Oates (£9.50), I love how this foundation is really light on my skin and matches my skin tone perfectly.

Ever since testing out Glo & Ray products I have fallen well and truly in love with their La Amo Creamy Shimmer Lip – Mysterious 640 (£12), This is an absolutely stunning shade of red, I really do love how it compliments my skin and the lasting power.

One of my all time favourite eyeshadow palettes of this month is the Glo & Ray’s Mariposa Eyeshadow Palette – Violet Emotion 400 (£12), this palette is highly pigmented and creates a gorgeous purple and grey smokey eye look. Makeup Revolution has definitely been one of my favourite brands for the past couple of months, I absolutely love their products. So this Makeup Revolution – Redemption Hot Smoked Palette (£4) is definitely one of my favourites, I just love all the shades it is perfect for both a night and day look. Ever since winning Miss Makeup Magpie’s Instagram competition for the Too Faced A La Mode Palette (£) this has also been a favouriteI have been in love with it ever since I love both the shades and pigments. In terms of other eye products I have been grabbing the Essence Liquid Ink Matte (£2.80) a lot, I have found this to be one eyeliner that does not smudge, budge or fade all day, it literally just stays put.
