January Favourites

I can't believe how fast this month has gone by; it literally has flown by. It only feels like this month started yesterday. I haven't done a favourites post in absolutely ages, so I decided to do one for this month as I've really been enjoying some old products. This month I have been shopping my stash and I have been using old products that I've simply neglected.

Maybelline The Falsies Mascara: I've re-purchased this mascara around 3X now and I always end up going back to it. It makes my lashes look amazing and it really lengths them and curls them. The brush is fantastic because it catches every eyelash. I hate mascara's that make my lashes look clumpy or make them look like spider-legs but this mascara doesn't do either of them things.

Toni & Guy Finishing Shine Spray: I've had this for quite a while but never really used it but the past two months and I've fallen in love with it. It makes my hair appear really shiny and much healthier. It also has a lovely scent! I'm not sure if they still do this product because I can't find it on the website, but I hope they do as it is a fantastic product and it was really affordable too.

GOSH Jumbo Lip Pencil - Flamenco Coral: The jumbo lip pencils feel lovely on your lips, the colour is a gorgeous peach. It's really easy to apply and it glides on your lips effortlessly. They're not particularly moisturising or hydrating that's why I love applying MAC tendertone - purring on top as it makes the colour slightly more intense and it feel much nicer on the lips. It's not the longest lasting lipstick as It last around 1-2 hours before you have to re-apply which can be slightly annoying.

Sally Hansen - Healthy Cuticles Now: Around December I really got into looking after my nails, I'm quite fortunate because naturally I have strong nails and they hardly ever break. I probably use this around once a week and my cuticles have been looking much healthier. A little goes a long way with this product and it smells lovely.

MAC Tendertones - Purring & Hot 'n' Saucy: I actually forgot I even owned these (how bad!) but i re-discovered them this month. I've literally worn one everyday whether it's on top of a lipstick or on it's own. They are super moisturising and hydrating. They apply a sheer colour on your lips. Hot 'n' Saucy is a gorgeous watermelon red & Purring is a beautiful sheer tangerine orange; on my lips it adds a lovely hint of peach and I love wearing it on top of the GOSH lip pencil. They smell AMAZING - they smell very fruity...almost like watermelon. The only downside is they came out in the SHOP COOK SHOP MAC collection last year, so they are limited edition. I'm hoping they bring these out in another collection because I definitely want to try some more colours!


I'm seriously fed up with the lighting in my photos recently - I'm so sorry!

What have you enjoyed using this month?

  2. Maybelline falsies is one of my favourite drugstore mascaras and i have been repurchasing mine too~ except that i prefer the waterproof formulation so that my stubborn straight lashes would remain curled :) Awwws, the MAC tendertones look so pretty and i am gutted that i missed out on them~ but thank you for introducing to me the GOSH lip pencil because i wasn't aware that such a product existed by the brand. I just discovered your great blog and followed :)Looking forward to reading more of your posts X x X x
