January 2014 Favourites

Hey hey hey,

This is my first ever monthly favourites post. 
First thing I realised that I had quite a lot of favourites this month but I managed to condense it down to my utimate January faves.

In no particular order:

Skinlite nose pore cleansing strips
About once a week I take one of these to my nose and remove blackheads.
These are a bargain at £1.50 from my local Home Bargains or if your from Liverpool Home and Bargain  haha!
I just wet my nose and stick it on for 15 mins then peel it off, I know its gross but I just love to see the blackheads come off, and the strips really have helped keep my blackheads at bay.
I couldn't find them on the Home Bargains website but I found some on Ebay Here :)

HD brows palette in Foxy
This is a brow must for me and was also featured on my 2013 beauty favourites, so I know its abit of a cheat but I absolutely love it, I don't know what i would do without it.
It stays on all day, and really matches my hair colour too.
You can buy this for £19.95 Here :)

Loreal Lumi Magique 
I have this in the shade 1light, this brightens up my under eye area like no other .. yes even better than YSL touché éclat (for me anyway) and with half the price tag. No surprises for us though as we all know YSL own Loreal amongst other brands.
This product doesn't crease under my eyes and like i said really brightens up a multitude of user eye sins and can make me go from looking super sleepy to immediately refreshed and ready for the day.
I have needed this especially with the party season being at the beginning of the month.
This retails for £8.49 from Here

Eylure naturalites eyelashes number 107
These are a must for me, especially with January hosting so many different parties for me. I love the 107 set and quite often even wear them for a day time look (Not Scared of the bold eye in the daytime) but these eyelashes are an essential if I'm wanting to jazz up and outfit or really finish off my look.
Never cry / have watery eyes in these eyelashes though as they just form into one big clump, but if you look after them then they stay looking brand new for a few more wears.
These are £5.95 from super drug who currently have them on offer Here

Loreal glam shine balmy gloss in dare the dragon fruit.
I've been loving this lip product ever since i bought it at the beginning of the month, i have a full review on my blog Here
Its super soft, an amazing colour and just gives me that little hint of colour with out being over the top but also as a nice gloss over my MAC Rebel lipstick.
You can find this for £6.99 Here

The last product now leads me onto my next product..
Of course its the MAC rebel lipstick, I can't go on anymore about my love for this product I loved it last year over the colder months and this year the same thing. Its just an amazing colour that is really on trend.
This is £15 Here

Peaches and Cream eyeshadow pigments.
These where bought for me by my lovely girls (Hi my meatballs, Laura , Becca and Amy if your reading). I squealed a little inside when i opened up my present with a selection of beauty goods, and heartfelt best friend related memories.
Peaches and Cream is a Liverpool based makeup artist. They are amazing, the makeup and hair ups that these girls do are just incredible.It is ultra glam and they make you look absolutely stunning before your big night out / event etc... If i was you i would search for this on Instagram and have a nosey. Not only do they do Make up and Hair ups but you can go home with the eye pigments that they have used on you amongst other things.
I love these and i feel like I'm having the peaches experience at home. Such beautiful good quality pigments.
You can get them from Here and while your there check out their blog , photos and shop. I promise you won't be disappointed, and your bank will take a little hammering from all the amazing things.

Loreal Skin Perfection 15 Second miracle Cleansing oil.
I love love love this product and it has worked wonders on my skin, my makeup glides off with ease, and leaves my skin feeling beautifully cleansed and refreshed.
I just rub it in to remove makeup and then wash it off with water, follow up with the rest of my regime.
This is £7.99 Here

Estee Lauder Double wear concealer
im in shade 3 medium , this stuff is the bees knees, it covers my spots all day long with no cakey-ness on any dry areas, and it doesn't run off when I'm extra oily, if you love the double wear foundation then you will defiantly love this.Its staying power is second to none and just makes me feel that little bit more confident when I'm out and about knowing that my spots won't be on show for all to see and to point at.
This is £21.00 Here

MAC Vanilla Pigment.
I have been really loving this product this month, i use it all over my face, under my brows , in my tear ducts, down my nose and on my cheekbones. With the right application this can really set off your makeup. Its the perfect under the brow bone highlight I've ever seen , its just a perfect champagne colour that sets of any natural and smokey eye makeup. Especially with it being party season I've been wearing this most weekends.
£17.00 Here

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette
This was a gift for Christmas for myself, as soon as i seen it in debenhams i had to have it.It completed my collection nicely and i just love the rose gold colours that it holds. Perfect for a day and night look but quite different to its sisters Naked and Naked 2.
Im so so pleased with this product and really glad that I bought it. I have a review and swatches on my blog Here

This retails at £37.00 Here

Last but not least..
Revlon Matte Suede 863 ruby ribbon nail varnish 
Matt lips and nails where essential over christmas and january and this just set off my outfits splendid,A lovely matt burgundy colour which looked amazing next to my MAC rebel lipstick.The nail varnish stayes on for days too. If i wasn't feeling the Matt finish I would just put a lick of top coat over to bring the shine back.
This was a gift for christmas last year so I don't know the price but i have seen it on ebay for as little as £2.99 which is a steal for a revlon nail varnish.

Thanks for reading.
