I can't believe it's already February! I'm sure everyone says this but time is really flying! I haven't done a "monthly favorites" post in a while so i thought I'd share some products I've really loved throughout the month of January!
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed: This blush is a really beautiful, flattering nude pink. It has the perfect amount of brown, pink and plum to give a bit of soft definition to you cheeks. I always reach for it when I'm in a rush, have no idea what to wear, or need something that will compliment a strong eye or lip since it goes with anything. Formula is pigmented and long wearing too. It's an amazing blush and really deserves it's own post (will do that soon!!).
Zoya Kelly: I hope you're not getting sick of hearing me talk about Zoya polishes! They are my favorite! I wore Kelly a few times this month. It's a rich bluish-purplish grey--unique enough that I'm never bored of it yet neutral enough that you can wear it with anything and it will be flattering! You can see my post on Kelly HERE!
Mac Patisserie: This lipstick is a really lovely "my lips but better" shade. It's a pink with a hint of brown and matches my lip color perfectly and makes them look smoother and richer. Now that I'm looking at Tarte Exposed and Mac Patisserie side by side, Patisserie actually reminds me of Exposed in lipstick form! It's a great everyday shade for a natural look and the Lustre formula is very comfortable on the lips!
Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in Cheers: I have swatches HERE from when I got this in November. It's a bright, creamy raspberry color! I love the colorburst lipgloss formula and the color is very flattering. I like this for a nice pop of color when I don't want to go full out with a bright lipstick!
Covergirl Lashblast Lash Perfection: I NEVER thought I'd the see day--a mascara I like as much as my Covergirl Lashblast volume (orange tube!)??? Yes. I actually don't know which one I like better. I think my original Lashblast may give me a bit more volume, but I like that Lash Perfection gives me volume and a ton of length! Two coats and they're long and defined. I think I prefer it over original Lashblast as an everyday mascara. I don't experience any smudging or flaking either. It's just a fantastic! If you're looking for a new mascara, I definitely recommend trying Lash Perfection or catch a buy one get one free (or 50% off) so you can try out both mascaras! ;)
Boyfriend by Kate Walsh Pulse Point Oil Rollerball: I've gotten really into perfumes the last few months. I believe the concept for this fragrance is to capture the scent of a guy on a girl. That either sounds like it could smell really nice or really questionable. Turns out I really love it. It doesn't smell like "guy" to me really, but it is a very warm and sensual smell. It's spicy, musky, and you can definitely smell warm vanilla. It's very unique! It's not a sweet, girly scent but I still find it very feminine. I just have to be careful not to over apply it because it literally lasts alllll day. If this sounds like something you'd like, check it out next time you're at a Sephora! I think it's a wonderful fall/winter scent. I also love that I could buy it in rollerball form-- they're less expensive than buying a huge bottle (that I probably won't get through!) and easy to throw in a purse!
L'oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Iced Latte: You can see my review and swatches of these eyeshadows HERE! Iced Latte is a shimmery, vanilla champagne. It really became my go-to shade when I'm in a rush. I just apply a bit on the lid with my finger or a flat shader brush, add some mascara and I'm good to go. It's perfect for when you're feeling really tired--I think the champagne color really opens up the eyes. I love the infallible eyeshadows but one thing I wanted to note is that they do crease after an hour or two-however, if I wear a primer (which I almost always do!) they last a bit longer!
Mac 286 Brush: This is a duo fibre blending brush that came out a little while ago with the Mac Naturally collection. It's described as a blending brush for sheer application of eyeshadow (specifically mineralized eyeshadow). So far I've been using this to just blend out eyeshadow in the crease or apply a sheer layer of eyeshadow to the lid and I have to say---I am in LOVE with this brush. It blends eyeshadow effortlessly! Look for a review of this brush soon!
That's all for my January favorites!! Have you tried any of them? What did you love this month??
