January Favourites*

Wednesday, 1 February 2017

Here we go- my first ever favourites post. I have never posted one before, purely because I never feel like I buy and try enough products each month to justify dedicating a post to them. However, with Christmas and my birthday over, I have been introduced to so many new items, which I feel is finally enough to make a favourites post!











Real Techniques Core Collection & Real Techniques Ultimate Eye Set- I have been wanting to try the Real Techniques makeup brushes for ages, so I was so so happy to open them on Christmas day! Both sets look absolutely gorgeous and make makeup application so easy. Investing in these sets is definitely something worth looking into if you want your makeup to look flawless. You can really see the difference in your foundation when using the core collection set. In the past, i've noticed my foundation was very cakey but using these brushes blends your foundation flawlessly!

Benefit Gimme Brow- I am one of the very lucky people who has been blessed with naturally thick eyebrows. My eyebrows definitely do not require much maintenance, so when I found this in the Benefit Advent Calendar I was amazed. This is the perfect product for me because it slightly fills in the thin parts of my brows whilst not looking over-the-top. I love this product and will 100% be purchasing a full sized one when it runs out!

Benefit They're Real Double The Lip- I received this lipstick in my Benefit Besties Set for Christmas and fell in love! If you want your lips to look fuller this is the product for you. It has two colours, a dark and light pink which almost acts as a lip liner creating the illusion of thicker, fuller lips. I'm already very tempted to buy the set of four lipsticks from this range!

Charlotte Tilbury Eyes To Mesmerise- You all know I love Charlotte Tilbury & cream eyeshadows so I knew I had to try her line. This is perfect for those early mornings when you need to do your makeup quickly. There's no need to blend or cut crease, you can simply apply with your finger and you're ready to go! It's that simple! 

L'Oreal Infallible Matte Powder- I bought this powder alongside the foundation and I am very impressed. The foundation, not so much, but I find that this powder is very good for oily skin! It lasts for a fair few hours and keeps my face looking extremely matte! If you need a new powder and you're on a budget, this is the one for you!

Kiss Blooming Lashes* & Kiss Gel Fantasy Nails*- I was very kindly sent these products last month and I fell in love. I love wearing false eyelashes but I find that most look extremely artificial. I find that I can wear these blooming lashes whilst still looking extremely natural! And the nails are amazing quality! I wore them on a night out a few weeks ago and they lasted all night and weeks after! I absolutely love them and would happily repurchase them! 

La Vie Est Belle- This has become my favourite perfume. It is such a sophisticated smell (If that is even a possible smell)... I bought this for my mom for Christmas and fell in love with it myself. So I headed down to boots during the boxing day sales and had to pick some up! I have a full review of this coming up soon so I won't say to much about it here, but stay tuned...

Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanse & Polish & Liz Earle Light Moisturiser- If you read my last post you will know I invested in some Liz Earle skincare and I can honestly say it was the best decision I have every taken, skincare-wise. If you want to read more about these products click here!

So that is everything I have been loving last month! 
What products have you loved using in January!
