January favourites

I knew January would be a good month for beauty favourites as my lovely family and friends spoiled me rotten with a ton of beauty goodies for Christmas. I've therefore been trying out products here and there when i've had the chance. These are the products i've been doting on throughout this month, some of them i've mentioned in previous blog posts, but I just can't help but love them! (Sorry not sorry!)
I've never actually owned a 'proper' watch before. My boyfriend got me this gorgeous Rose Gold number from DKNY this year for Christmas. I love it so much as it just goes with everything. 

My MAC 129 brush has been my favourite brush ever since I bought it, but this month i've been using it more for warm toned blushers like this  MAC Warm Soul mineralize blush. I've also been loving my Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush for blending concealer, which I find much better than using my fingers.

These two products I would deem 'classics' of my make-up collection. I've been wearing less make-up in the winter for a 'fresh faced' look and these two products are perfect for achieving that.I love Maybelline Great Lash for separated, full lashes, and it's super inexpensive too. I think I can officially say I love my Bourjois Healthy Mix as much as, if not more than my MAC studio fix. I have quite good skin, so the coverage is perfect for all occasions, nights out, everyday wear, work etc etc. It also leaves my skin hydrated and lasts quite a long time, I think this product would be my 'desert island' make-up product. I love it.

I also got two EOS lipbalms for Christmas and rediscovered my love for them. I'm always looking around for new lipbalms as my lips always seemed to be dry, but these are up there with my favourite ones. Plus, the packaging is cute and they smell amazing. Win win.

I've been loving Soap & Glory showers this month as all their products smell amazing and make your skin super soft too. I'm sometimes a really rubbish woman when it comes to mositurising, I hate it. The Butter Yourself moisture lotion is so quick absorbing you barely even have to think about it, and I've noticed my skin is a lot softer too. Also, these bottles are pretty big and therefore they're probably going to last a while, so well worth the money.

And that's it for my beauty favourites of January! What have you been loving this month?
