One month down! I can't believe it is February already, for me that means back to work and real life again, sigh... It's been a great break though, and I am feeling ready to go back to work feeling refreshed and rejuvenated! Let's hope it lasts...
I am excited to share with you some of my favourite beauty products from January, I just love reading favourites posts/watching videos so I hope you guys enjoy reading this.
Let's start with make up...
Maybelline Fit Me concealer- This product has received rave reviews and for good reason, it is the best concealer I have ever used, and I have used a lot... It is smooth and does not sit in any fine lines, I use this on blemishes and any darkness under my eyes. I would highly recommend it.
Clinique Even Better Foundation- I did not take this product away with me when I went overseas and when I got home I re-discovered how much I love it. It is light but provides good coverage, and it does even out skin tone as the name suggests. I also love the packaging of this product, sometimes I find foundations in bulky glass packaging annoying, but this is compact and convenient. This foundation also has an SPF so is a good one to wear during the day.
MAC Mineralize blush in Love Thing- I love blush, to the point where some may think I have a problem... I just think that cheek colour really brightens your face and can really complete a look. This is the blush I have been reaching for frequently this month. It is a deeper coloured blush than I would normally go for but when applied lightly just looks great, it is a deep kind of berry colour with a light gold shimmer, this does not look overly shimmery on the cheeks, it just adds a healthy glow, this blush would probably look great on people with a deeper skin tone than me (I am quite fair), but I just tap the excess off on the back of my hand and apply it lightly and I love it. I think this colour would suit just about everyone.
Urban Decay Lip Junkie lip gloss- I got this teeny tiny sample sized lip gloss with my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette, and I love it, it is a great neutral colour, it just adds a little something so I have been wearing it when I have darker colours on my eyes as it is not a 'steal-the-show" kind of colour. I also love the consistency of this gloss, it is glossy without being sticky and tastes slightly minty, yum! I will definitely be purchasing some more of these.
Now on to skin and body care...
Vaseline Total Moisture Dry Skin 24 hr nourishing lotion- I have quite dry skin, but it has been super hot here lately and I just hate the feeling of thick body creams'/body butters in the Summer, gross... So I gave this one a try, it is a thin consistency and absorbs quickly but still keeps me moisturised, and it's cheap! I'm sold!
Lush Ultra Bland- This is my all time favourite Lush product, it is a balm cleanser which you massage on to dry skin and it just melts off your make up, it smells like almonds and honey and is wonderful! Sometimes I use this on it's own and other times I follow it with another cleanser, it just depends how lazy I am! I am not sure if this would suit people with oily skin, but for me it works wonders.
Clarisonic Mia- I think this was the first big skin investment I have made and I am so glad I did. The Clarisonic Mia is an electronic cleansing tool which oscillates to remove make up and impurities, there are lots of claims made about this product including that it removes 6x more make up than manual cleansing. I don't really know how I would test that, what I do know, is that my skin tone has improved, my breakouts has decreased, and when I do get them they clear up quite quickly and the dry patches that I used to get are a thing of the past! I'm a happy customer!
