Wow, it’s that time of the month again, it’s time for the first monthly favourites of 2018, January favourites. As I mentioned in Wednesday’s post, January has gone so fast for me in some ways as I’ve been super busy at work, but so slow in other ways. I am very much loving that little bit of extra sunlight we are starting to get. Anyway, time to get on with this months’ beauty favourites.
COLOURPOP LIPPIE STIX IN CAMI
I talk about Colourpop a lot on my blog, but I literally haven’t stopped wearing their Lippie Stix in Cami in January. This Lippie Stix is in the matte X formula, which means for a matte lipstick it is incredibly long-lasting, but also super comfortable to wear. It’s a gorgeous cool toned mauve nude shade so it works great for so many looks, especially for a quick natural work look as it just adds something extra. It’s definitely one to try from Colourpop.
MAKEUP REVOLUTION CONCEAL AND DEFINE FULL COVERAGE CONCEAL AND CONTOUR
The Makeup Revolution Concealer, with the longest name ever, is a new-ish one to my collection but it more than deserves a mention in my January beauty favourites. I love love the formula of this, it’s full coverage but doesn’t feel heavy on the skin at all. It lightens up my under eyes but I can also use it to cover any blemishes elsewhere on my face without having to switch to another concealer. Oh, and the applicator is huge. I really adore this as it means I don’t need to keep dipping the doe-foot in and out of the concealer bottle.
MEMEME COSMETICS ARCH ANGEL*
I absolutely love this product from MeMeMe Cosmetics. I haven’t stopped using it since the day I first got it, which when I rarely switch from my trusty Benefit Brow Zings, this shocks me. It has a tiny spooley which is the perfect size to brush the product through your eyebrows. I adore the shaped and filled finish it leaves behind. The only thing I would say though is, I don’t actually use the highlight end. It is lovely, but I’m just too lazy for this extra step.
ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS MODERN RENAISSANCE PALETTE
My next January favourite probably won’t come as a surprise if you follow me on Instagram, as I can’t stop myself from featuring it, but is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance eyeshadow palette. I’m not sure where to start as I really do love everything about this palette, it has incredible pigmentation and all of the shades blend super easily. I adore the beautiful eyeshadow shades too, the collection of shades is totally different to any other palette I own. If you haven’t purchased this one yet, I really recommend you do.
SPECTRUM B05 LUXE BLENDER
Spectrum brushes are definitely one of my absolute favourite brands for makeup brushes, but this B05 Luxe Blender brush is just incredible. It may be an eye brush, but over the last two or three months I’ve actually started using this for highlighter and I absolutely adore the finish when using this brush. It picks up the perfect amount of product with ease, and easily creates a blinding highlighter. It’s really easy to soften the highlight out if you want your highlighter to be a little more subtle too.
SPECTRUM B06 TALL TAPERED BLENDER
Another Spectrum brush but the Spectrum B06 Tall Tapered Blender brush deserves a mention too. Weirdly until the last month this hasn’t really been a brush I reached for that often, as I thought the brush bristles were too long to be any good, but how stupid am I? This is an absolutely incredible blending brush that literally blends everything with ease. I was previously reaching for shorter brushes but this is honestly so much better at blending, and a brush I can’t see myself stopping loving now that I’ve discovered just how good it is.
