Well hello to you my reader chums! This year seems to be zooming by with the midst of February already creeping up and the season of spring at our finger tips. Over the past few weeks, I've been loving several new products and can't wait to share them with you.
Let's take a look at my slightly belated January favourites -
Sephora eye shadow stick in 'Beige'
I'm a big fan of eye shadow sticks. I find using an eyeshadow stick makes the shadows bolder and extends their wear time immensely. One I've been obsessed with over the past few months is Sephora's in 'Beige'. The stick's pigmentation is insane, a perfect everyday champagne colour. I love to pair this with every eye look and find it a versatile base for all. It's creamy to apply, blends easily and most importantly grips the shadows to ensure lengthy wear for eye makeup.
Too Faced Melted Chocolate lipstick in 'Chocolate Honey'
Being a chocolate lover, I couldn't resist finally treating myself to one of the Too Face melted chocolate lipsticks. I chose the shade 'Chocolate Honey' as I don't own any brown toned nudes so wanted to try something new. Safe to say, it's become one of my go to favourites. The matte yet glossy finish is ideal for many beauty lovers. Given the creamy consistency, it's comfortable to wear and once the lipstick has set to the lips, it feels like nothing is there at all. The colour is a beautiful brown nude which adds a bit of something to the overall makeup look and isn't too bold. With its lovely feel on the lips, the colour pigmentation and creamy, long wear consistency, I'd 100% recommend.
Nars 'Cruella' velvet matte lipstick
I never thought anything could replace my love for Mac's Russian Red but Nars 'Cruella' lip pencil has come in at a close second. The pencil-style applicator and creamy texture is enough to make me love a matte finish even more. With its insanely pigmented red colour, quick application and the lasting power seamless, I couldn't fault it. If you're a big red lip fan, go and try this one out.

Garnier essentials day cream
I'm not usually one to ever change up moisturisers and tend to use the same cream for a long period of time. However, I ran out of my go to Garnier moisturiser for normal to dry skin and as Tesco didn't stock my usual, I picked up the hydrating day cream instead. This is an incredible moisturiser; it's thick consistency and power to sink into the skin quickly is flawless. I love how even though it's a thicker cream, it doesn't feel heavy at all on the skin and the scent is ever so gentle.
Juicy Couture perfume
I think its somewhat of a tradition to receive a perfume every Christmas time either from my parents or nan and last year was no exception. At first, I wasn't too keen on the scent of Juicy Couture, however after a few spritzes, I grew to love it. The scent isn't like my usual Marc Jacobs or Burberry but has a muskiness to it with an underlying addictive sweetness.
I hope you enjoyed my January favourites. What products have you been loving lately?
