JANUARY FAVOURITES

Sunday, 31 January 2016

I can't believe that the first month of 2016 is over already.. How crazy is that? This month I've found myself reaching for pretty much the same things and really loving them all so I thought I'd share my favourites with you. Let me know what you've been loving this month in the comments!



I bought this in Florida back in December and have used it religiously since, I've tried using a couple other foundations now that I'm running low but it's just not the same. Luckily for me Max Factor is Covergirl's sister brand and they have this foundation just named as Max Factor Face Finity All Day Flawless 3 in 1- I'm going to pick this up ASAP just so I can get my fix so I'll do a full review and comparison then!

This is my sisters and came part of a massive set that was like £10 from amazon- I used to be all about my Real Techniques Buffing Brush, but now I just can't stop with this one, it takes literally no time at all to blend my foundation out. Love it.


I've been using this for about 6 months now, it lasts for so long as I'm only now on my second bottle. I use this as my morning moisturiser, it's so nourishing and gives me such a glow which is needed in these dull winter months.I have also noticed that it helps reduces the look of pores which is an added bonus.

I go through stages of not using lash curlers, but with these gold beauties I really notice how much difference they make to my usual stubby lashes- I highly recommend these!!


I wasn't going to jump on the bandwagon, I was going to wait until Makeup Revolution released a dupe (which they have by the way) However my mum didn't know what to get me for Christmas so I asked for this and holy cow I'm so happy I did. Every shadow is so buttery and blendable, I've never known a more beautiful palette either in terms of colours. The amount of looks you're able to create with just this one palette is ridiculous, I haven't tested it to the full potential yet but I keep combining colours in my head and imagining how they'll come out.


I was always quite dubious about setting sprays, mainly because I thought spending anything more than £5 on a bottle of what I thought was water was a waste. I did really like the Makeup Academy Setting Spray, but when I was in America I decided to just pick this up and test it out. I will say it is absolutely incredible. Literally my makeup does not budge until I want to take it off. 

This is a cult favourite and normally during this time of year I'm wearing purples or reds however this month I can't stop reaching for this perfect nude? There's not really much else to say about it apart from I'm gonna need a new one very soon!


Another product I got in America, I'm nearly out and I'm going to be buying a new one asap. It doesn't crease in the slightest and covers my hideous dark circles and highlights so lovely!

I don't know what my life was before I got my hands on this. I've had this for a good 6+ months now and it's still pretty much full. I will say I was unsure when I first got it because of how creamy the top layer was, however once it had dried out a tiny bit it was perfect! I just love how my brows look when I use this. The colour is amazing, it's so easy to create the brow that I want because once I've got this product on my brush it just does as it's told.


I have been using the banana shade to set my under eyes ever since I bought this way back at the start of December, and I can honestly say it's the best powder I've used, it brightens my under eyes amazingly and it doesn't crease at all. However I didn't touch the contour shades until recently but I'm really loving the lightest shade, it's not too muddy and gives the most perfect looking contour. I also love using the middle shade which is more of a bronzing colour because it's got a more orange undertone compared to the grey undertones the contour shades have- because it's so perfect for my skin tone it doesn't look too orange on my skin.

Complexion Perfection Contour Brush
I've mentioned this brush many times before but I've been using it non-stop this month, it is so dense so when blending my contour out it does it so effortlessly. I got this well over a year ago now but I go through phases of using it but I can tell that 2016 is going to be the year of using it.

  2. I've been so desperate for Kat Von D's Shade and Light palette, and your mini review has made me crave it even more! There's other products I want to try as well, but that's number one! I felt the same about setting spray too, like why! Haha, great favourites!
