January favourites

Well hello to you my reader chums! Its favourites time again as January is well and truly gone. I must admit January was a lovely month and a great way to start off the year. A new year means new products and here are all the beauty products I've been loving.

January beauty product favourites

BarryM lipstick in LPS1

 I've been wearing this burgundy lipstick on evenings out/parties and it has become the lipstick I grab for quite frequently. I say the shade is very similar to Rimmel's 107 with a slightly pinker undertone. This lipstick lasts for ages and since the lasting power is that good, its pretty difficult to rub off. I love the matte finish, the colour and what it adds to the whole makeup look when applied, a perfect winter shade.

Urban Decay Naked palette

As I said in my previous post, I received it for Christmas and have used it every day without fail since. It has become my stable everyday eye product, perfect for creating neutral and smokey eye looks. With the most gorgeous 12 shades, it's the prettiest palette I own and I just love it. 

My favourite shades have been 'half baked', 'buck' and 'virgin'. 'Buck' is probably the most beautiful matte brown shade I've used because it really helps add depth to the eye. 'Virgin', I've mainly loved for inner corner because it has just the right amount of shimmer.

Benefit's Porefessional Primer

My sister got this miniature version in a Benefit Christmas set, however as she really isn't into primers, she let me have it and I was keen to give it a go. I've been applying it before makeup on special events or days where I'm out for the whole day and want it to stay intact. 

Not only does it help your makeup last for a long period of time, but it also makes makeup go on much smoother and gives a beautiful finish. Once I've finished this miniature size one, I'm definitely going to pick up the full size. I love how a little can go a long way and it really can reduce the look of pores.

Maybelline's Falsies Mascara
This mascara I used to swear by, however, I stopped using it for a good while because I wanted to try out some other mascaras. Yet last month, I picked it up again, began using it and thought why did I ever stop? I love how it lengthens, thickens and curls the lashes, making my eyelashes look noticeable and fluttery. I'm one of those girls, whose eyelashes don't really curl or stay looking curled and in place all day, however, this mascara does the trick.

BarryM nail polish in Orchid

My nail favourite of the month is from Barry M's silk range in the shade 'Orchid'. I got this for Christmas and began using it throughout January. This is the first shade I've tried from the silk range and its honestly such a beautiful colour. I love how metallic/shiny the purple looks and the smooth, silky finish it leaves on the nails. 

As it has such a lovely finish, its a rather elegant and grand colour I think. I'm definitely going to pick up some other shades from this range after using this one!

Lush bath bombs

I love how you can just pop one in the bath and they'll give off a lovely smell, present a beautiful array of colours and leave you feeling ultra moisturised. It has allowed me to have more 'me' time, having that 15/20 minutes in my day with no phone, and just laying there with my thoughts. 

It's a relaxing, calming time, which I'm going to start doing more because it helps relieves all the worries and pain of the day and lets you concentrate on you.
