Monthly favourites January 2016

It’s the end of an other month witch means it’s January favourites time! It feels like ages since I have done one of those, the last one was in October if I recall correctly! I’m so excited to to share my beauty favorites with you guys! I’m one who quite likes January. It’s all about the new starts, and good resolutions. I can’t believe we are already at the end of the month (life just goes by so quick!) so without too much rambling let’s start this first favorites roundup of the year!

Skin Care

Monthly favourites January 2016

I have always loved Origins products, but hadn’t tried those 2 before. I have already talk about the High-Potency Night-A-Mins™ Cream in a previous post (click here), so I won’t go into much details, but let me just say that this cream was a real skin saviour!

I have used The Eye Doctor™ Moisture Care religiously (mornings and nights) for the entire month, it really does de-pouf puffs, and fade dark shadows underneath the eyes. I love the smell (light cucumber) and the way it feels going on (smooth, soothing and a bit cooling) and the texture (seems like a gel-cream). It is not heavy but it is very moisturizing.

I fell hard for this Venus: The Grunge eyeshadow palette  by Lime Crime. Love the packaging, love the quality and the pigmentation of the shadows plus they are easy to blend. I also like that this palette is super versatile, you can create super dramatic or more day to day, casual looks with it.

On to the lips, this Lip Magic Balm from Charlotte Tilbury was a real blessing for my dry lips. It has a gorgeous rose smell to it, perfect handbag size and leaves my lips hydrated for hours.

I have a strange addiction with red lipstick, I don’t know I just feel like I can conquer the world when I have red lipstick on, and I think I found my perfect shade Tijuanaaaaaaaaa!!! It is one of the new shade of studded kiss lipstick ( full review here) I’m crazy in love with this vibrant Spanish read. Tijuana makes me feel like a movie star on a red carpet night (nothing less).

I got my self a present for the new year the Lime Crime Velvetine Holiday Bundle and I absolutely adore this Buffy shade. It is a a neutral beige with warmer undertones. I’m super impressed with the pigmentation and opacity of the formula plus it is super creamy and less drying than your regular liquid lipstick. It is really easy to use and one coat is enough.

this Sigma Spa brush cleaning mat has change my life! Cleaning my makeup brushes used to be a chore for me – I hated it! It was time consuming and I always ended up with super dry hands. But this mat change everything, cut the cleaning time in half, and my brushes are cleaner than ever (full review here).
