January Favourites 2016

The first month of the year has come and gone already, wow! It’s been quite a whirlwind of a month so far and February is going to be another very busy one. However, I get to unwind now and tell you the products I enjoyed using the most this month.


I rediscovered an old favourite in the Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Big Bang. These were all the rage a couple summers ago when they were first released and I, being the makeup hoarder I am, picked up five shades. I loved them and wore them frequently but then kind of forgot about them for some time. Until finally a couple weeks ago I was looking for a great statement lip colour to wear to a friend’s birthday party and I decided it was about time I busted out this showstopper. It’s such a beautiful red, lasts a long time and feels great on the lips, meaning it does not dry them out.

One of my most recent posts featured my new foundation love, the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation is amazing. It’s medium to full coverage, lasts all day and has a very natural finish.

I repurchased an old favourite, the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla. I put off this purchase because of the high price tag, but I just love it so much, I couldn’t avoid it forever. It’s perfect non-cakey coverage that works for all parts of the face, i.e. under the eyes and on spots.

I’ve been required to wear subtle and classic jewelry, so my go-to accessories have been these gold earrings and my rose gold Bering Watch. It’s a Danish jewelry brand that has very sleek and modern design, which I adore. It is comfortable to wear, looks good with a business attire and a casual weekend outfit. A very versatile piece.

I’ve almost run out of my Lush Charity Pot Hand and Body Lotion and I tried to purchase a new pot, but somehow, they are out and are unaware of when they will be back in stock. This is my nightly hand cream that keeps my hands soft and moisturized. I bought a cream specifically designed for the hands, but hated it so much I returned it. This is a clear case of how much a product’s effectiveness is evident when you stop using it for a bit. I will definitely repurchase when they are back in stock, who knows when.


There you have it, my January favourites, now let’s make this February the best month yet!!
