January Favourites

Friday, 29 January 2016

Well the first month of 2016 is now down and its time for the first monthly favourites for the year. I haven't really been trying a whole lot of new products in the month of January but I have a few standouts for me that I have rediscovered in my collection or picked up along the way. So lets jump on in and I will start telling you what I have been loving...


Becca x Jacyln Hill Highlight in Champagne Pop - It took me a little while to jump on the Champagne Pop band Wagon but I am so pleased that I did. If you are unsure on this highlighter I do recommend you give it ago you will not be disappointed it is so stunning on and it just looks good with everything. This has been the only highlight I have been using all month long. I think this year I will have to get on the Becca craze and purchase some more of their products.

Bare Minerals Eye Shadow Palette in Posh Neutrals - Bare Minerals eye shadows are just beautiful and creamy. I first tried them when I purchased a gift set and it had a little duo in it and I was hooked, I had been lusting over this palette for awhile and finally found it and picked it up. This palette has great everyday colours for me and it compact enough to carry around with you if you need touch ups or for travel. I highly suggest checking out Bare Minerals eye shadows.

Minxx Liquid Lipstick* - I have been reaching for this lipstick/lip gloss a fair bit lately specially on no makeup days as the colour is super natural and not to in your face which I love. These are called Liquid Lipsticks but I would say they are more like a gloss they are glossy and have a bit of shimmer (not chunky) and last like a gloss but a little better. I rarely find glosses that I reach for all the time as I can be a bit picky but this one has been a keeper, it is not sticky at all very creamy and easy to apply.

Hourglass Veil Primer - I have spoken about this primer before and I need to mention it again, I have just been loving the crap out of it I know it is pricey but I just love how my makeup applies to my skin after I have used this and it seems to help with my oil overload during the day. My new Holy Grail primer.

Real - U Skincare - I have done a full review of these products here if you would like to know how they went for me over the month of December. I continued to use these products through the month of January and added in some other products I was already using. I did swap out the Real - U moisturiser for my Skinstitut moisturiser as I much preferred this one. I have really been loving these products and what they have done for my skin over the last couple of months.

MAC Prep + Prime Fix + - I have always loved MAC Fix + but I don't think I have really talked about it to much so I thought I would add it into my favourites. I use this spray on a daily basis, I use it to set my makeup after application and I also add a bit on my eye shadow brush if I want to make my eye shadow a bit more intense looking and help it to grip to my lids. I even carry the mini bottle around with me all the time to spritz on my face/makeup if needed.

What was your January Favourites?

  1. I'd love to try some more Becca products this year as well. I don't have Champagne Pop but I do have the pressed powder version of Moonstone and it's so beautiful, I've been reaching for it literally every day.

  2. LOVE the Real-U products. The cleanser is a HG for me. I really wanted to love Champagne Pop but when I switched it so didn't really like how gold it was on my skin, however I don't doubt that it looks amazing on everyone else lol!!

I love the Becca highlighters especially Champagne Pop, it is such a beautiful universal shade that looks good all the time.

  11. I'm interested in the Highlighter in Champagne Pop. I have a lot of makeup in general but nothing in the way of highlighters so I really need to jump onto the bandwagon myself! :)

  12. I've been resisting buying Champagne Pop but it's just so pretty D: That Minxx Lipgloss sounds great too! I hated lipgloss for ages but lately I am growing attached to them again. They've come a long way from their sticky and tacky counterparts!

    1. I know I was resisting as well but obviously not to well haha. I am the same with the lip glosses I loved them then I hated them and now they are slowly making a come back for me, specially with all these great new formulas out that are not sticky or have chunky glitter in them.

  16. I'm still fighting the temptation that is the Champagne Pop Highlighter! I know everyone raves about it but I honestly have way too many highlighters at the moment but each time I see a pic of it, I want it even more, haha!

    1. It gets like that doesn't it. I wasn't going to pick it up but ended up giving in and got it. It is a very gold highlighter though and different to any of the others that I own.

  17. Becca's Champagne Pop highlighter deserves all the hype. I don't think I've liked any other highlighter more than this. Awesome selection of favourites. All of which, I'd love to try out!
