January Favourites

I usually start these posts stating how quick the month has flown by, but this month is different. I think January has been never ending, and I glad to be welcoming February.

 Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Yu and Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Descanso  are my two most worn since getting them just before Christmas. I snapped up the miniature set of Nars lip pencils as I have been lusting after trying them. I am glad to confirm that they are just as brilliant as everyone makes out. They are highly pigmented and the colours are so bright and vibrant with just one swipe. At £19 they are pricey but I have to say if there was a colour which I fell in love with I would definitely pick it up without hesitation. Charlotte Tilsbury Lipgloss in Sweet Stiletto is my other lip lover this month it is the perfect combination with the Descanco nude colour. At £16.50 its once again on the higher end of the spectrum but I love the texture of the gloss and this also has excellent pigmentation. La Roche-Posay Ceralip is my chapped lip saviour this month, this horrid cold and windy weather had taken a terrible hacking at my lips and they ended up so dry. I did a full post on this for further details which you can read here. Unfortunately it does not seemed to be widely stocked at the moment and Boots is out of stock at the moment, if you do manage to get your hands on it it will only cost you £7.

L'Oreal True Match Foundation in W1 Golden Ivory has literally been my best discovery of the last few months and its all thank to Amelia Liana. She has recommended it quite a few times either on her blog or on her YouTube channel and I finally managed to snap it up. People sometime ironically seem to have a problem with matching it perfectly to their skin tones and end up mixing two. But for me this colour matches my skin perfectly and for £9.99 it is the best drugstore foundation which I think I have ever used it is definitely on par with more high end brands which easily charge double to price.

This month I decided to treat myself to having some acrylic nails and I choose to have them painted in Naked by China Glaze. It is a lovely bright colour with a shimmer running throughout it so girly and cute. I loved the colour so much that I decided to by it myself so I can wear it once I get my nails removed. My mum instantly borrowed it and she reported back how long lasting it is, which means a thumbs up from her.

In the Selfridge's sale I picked up the Vera Wang Bejeweled Perfume  for £22.50. The scent is beautiful and fresh - perfect for the spring. I have been wearing it on a daily basis and it is very long wearing, it keeps the fresh cool fruity tones light on the skin.

What have been your go to products this month?
