January Favourites!

I actually haven't been using too many new products this month. To be honest, I haven't been using that much makeup either. I've been too tired to bother with applying eyeshadow so my look has consisted of lip balm, eyeliner, mascara and foundation for basically the entire month. FOTD's are my favourite posts so I'll try and get one up soon. Hope you are all having a good week! This week is dragging for me. I know it's only Tuesday, but I'm dying for the weekend to be here already. What were some of your favourite products for January?
LUSH Fresh Face Mask "A Crash Course In Skincare": Brightens and softens my skin. I love the smell and I would definitely repurchase this fresh face mask again. It was my first one and I was very impressed. I'm looking forward to trying more.

Revlon Photo Ready in Medium Beige: You know already that I love this stuff. My face just glows with this. It gives the perfect finish and great coverage.

MAC Fix+: This sets my foundation/powder and melts everything together making my face look flawless. I also use this with my Mineralize Eyeshadows to foil them. Love Fix+. Not sure if it has been in my favourites before, but it should be EVERY month!

MAC Cream Colour Base in Pearl: I just picked this up this month and I've been using it everyday. Gives me a perfect light golden sheen. This looks great with my slightly tan skin at the moment.

MAC Mineralize Eyeshadow in Gilt By Association: I use this wet or dry. As a liner or in my outer crease. I really really am glad I picked this up with the Style Black collection!

MAC Soft Brown Eyeshadow: The times I've worn eyeshadow this month it has always been with soft brown blended in my crease. It's great for blending out colours.

Blistex Lip Medix: It is so dry at my work. This has saved my life. I have Blistex in my lunch bag, makeup case, by my bed, at the computer desk, purse...etc. If you have dry lips, this fixes it like nothing else. Blistex I find to be the best brand for lip chap out there.


  1. blistex is great but have you tried vintage sister lip balms? they are AMAZING! the most moisturizing lip product I've ever used and so adorable. I promise I don't work for them I just think it's a great product...lol

  2. The MAC mineralize eyeshadow lookss gorgeous I need to add this to my list (which gets a lil bit longer everyday lol)


  3. i really want to try this revlon foundation :( hurry up & come to the uk please lol great post hun xoxo

  4. I'm going to have to break down and by Fix+! I keep seeing it everywhere lately and its calling my name. Also, Soft Brown is just a genius color for blending or on its own:)

  5. I so empathize with you. I loved putting on makeup until I started working. Working makes me so tired I can only barely get up the energy to do the basics =(

  6. Ahhh i do not get the hype about MAC fix +, everyone lvoes it but me! lol maybe i dont know hwo to use it yet? or maybe i just have uber oily skin? or big pores and when i put this on it melts away my foundation? I DONT KNOW! but its frustrating, because id love for it to improve my foundation/makeup like it does with the rest of you girls!!!

    my fav posts to post are FOTDs also, but i never do them! because im not a morning person, and so before school i just slap on whatever and take pics, and then when i do half decent makeup on the weekends, im always too tipsy looking to post them! drama drama drama haha

    love your blog :) x

  7. I really want guilt by association eye shadow but I never got it in NZ, was sold out :(
    think I am going to try to get it online somehow because I have read so much about it and want it!!

  8. great favorites ! mac's CCb was in my favorites accept i have hush :)

  9. I have been wanting soft brown for awhile now! I use a satin taupe dupe to blend out my shadows, which looks nice, but it'd be nice to have something a bit lighter.

    Great post!

  10. We all have one of those months once in a while, I think :) I'm sure you'll get your passion for applying makeup back soon! And I love Soft Brown and Fix+ too :)

  11. Love your favourites this month! And agreed about Fix+! ;)


  12. I want Fix+ and Gilt by Association so bad, I'm so bad I didn't jump on the e/s it when it was released! It's wayyyy sold out now :( wah wahhh

    Great favorites, hun!
