January Favourites

Afternoon lovelies,

Hope you are all having a good week. I cant quite believe its February already!

I have a few favourites from the past month that i have been using pretty much daily, with the exception of one (more about the below!)

♥ Benefit Bad Gal Mascara in Black ♥
♥ Illamasqua Precision Ink Eyeliner in Abyss ♥
♥ Accessorize Merged Blusher in No2 Starlet ♥
♥ MAC Lipstick in Saint Germain ♥
♥ Clinique Anti Blemish Foundation in No1 Alabaster ♥
  • Benefit Bad Gal Mascara - I do quite believe that i have no found my holy grail mascara, i absolutely love this! It gives me full, long lashes, doesn't clump and is quite dry and not watery like some mascaras can be.
  • Illamasqua Precision Ink Eyeliner - This has been a staple in my make up routine ever since i received it. It makes applying liquid eyeliner so simple and lasts a long time without rubbing off.
  • Accessorize Merged Blusher - I think that i need to dedicate a whole blog post to these bad boys! I am in love, and they are SO similar to the MAC mineralize blushes but for such a fraction of the price! This one is gorgeous, pigmented and has great colour pay off!
  • MAC Saint Germain Lipstick - As i stated above this is the one product that i haven't been wearing daily as i would put this as a 'night time only' lipstick. If barbie wore lipstick, this would be without a doubt her colour! Its gorgeous and one i have been reaching for on nights out!
  • Clinique Anti Blemish Foundation - My foundation of the moment, great coverage, lasts all day and one that i have been reaching for most often throughout the month of January. 
♥ Swatches ♥
*Lipstick & Blush swatched very heavily!*
What have you been loving this month?

  14. I was converted to Clinique anti-blemish also in alabaster in the last few months!! I'd been using clinique repairwear in order to cover the spots and then I discovered anti-blemish and not only does it cover my spots but also goes some way to healing them!!! great post x
