Monthly Favourites// January


Hello gorgeous readers, hope you have all had a brilliant weekend! I am astounded by the fact we are a week in February already?! I feel like I celebrated new year like yesterday, does anyone else feel like this? Anyway, disbelief aside, I bring you my January favorites! If you are an avid reader of my blog, you will have most definitely seen these products before as I am currently obsessed with them! So keep reading for my January favourites!

Rimmel Kate Moss Lipsticks in Shade 03 (Link) and Shade 101 (Link)
I brought the Kate lipstick in 03 a while ago and have been in love with it ever since. I wear it in the day, for meals out, nights out and always. You can see how much I have been using it by the state the lipstick is in, not pretty! Since I knew how much I loved shade 3, I found myself drawn to the 'Kate' sections of the Rimmel stands and before I knew it I had Shade 101 in my basket, oops! As expected the colour is a gorgeous soft pink, it's a beautiful quality and the pigmentation is amazing. I haven't worn it all that much lately, simply because I've been using shade 03 so much but I have my eye on it for a cute night out makeup look.

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair 1 (Link)
I had never really had much experience with concealers and was completely stumped as to what to buy. There seem to be a lot of different types that all have different applications and finishes. I found myself needing one after the university lifestyle of nights out, dealines and little sleep was playing havoc on my skin. After doing a good deal of research, I found this little beauty coming up time and time again. I haven't been disappointment as this is a heavy duty concealer, a perfect match for my under eye bags. I've even taken to using it for contouring as it really brightens the under eye area. Again, you can tell it's had some use as the label on the tube has completely worn off. Again, oopsie!


Rimmel 60 Seconds Nail varnish in Mary Mary Quite Contrary (Link)
You may recognize this lavender looking beauty from a recent Beauty Haul post I recently blogged about. It really is the most beautiful lilac shade and I've found the finish of the Rimmel 60 second range to be better than most, especially when this pretty little thing costs just £3.69. So easily affordable as a pocket money purchase. For gorgeous spring time nails, look no further. 

Barry M Kohl Pencil in White (Link)
I hadn't thought to include this product until last minute as I've found myself reaching for this everyday without really noticing. On early mornings when I'm getting ready for lectures and I'm still half asleep, this little beauty does wonders in making my eyes appear big, bright and awake. It is really deeply pigmented and I only need around two 'coats' to build up a bright white colour. The only thing I dislike about this product is the clumpy appearance it can give your bottom lashes if you accidentally get this on them. Overall though, I have been loving using this product and for £2.99 you can't really complain.

Maxfactor Face Finity All Day Flawless 3in1 Foundation in Beige (Link)
If you've been reading my blog, you will have heard me go on and on about this foundation. I first heard it described as a holy grail foundation and was truly intrigued. Since buying it, I have been wearing it everyday and have adored the look it gives my skin. I wont say anything more as not only have I already blogged about it (you can read that here) but I have been talking non-stop about it ever since. Put simply, It's love.

That's all for my January Favourites. Have you tried any of these products and is it love for you too?
