January Beauty Favourites

Friday, January 30, 2015
I can't believe we are already one month into 2015! Now it is time for my January beauty favourites! I haven't published a beauty favourites post for a while however you can check out my November/December favourites on Laura's blog which you can check out, here. I have a lot of favourites this month, from nail polish, brow serum and brushes to shampoo, foundation and cologne. 

Firstly, the makeup! I made a small order on Wilkinsons in December and three of the products I picked up are in my January favourites: the Maybelline Color Drama (Nude Perfection), Maybelline Color Tattoo (Creamy Beige) and the Essence Fixing Powder, the latter has been a favourite for months! 

Another makeup favourite is a re-discovery from 2011/2012, the Tweezerman Brow Mousse which I received in a kit as I am a Tweezerman ambassador; I am so glad I have it in my makeup collection again as it is the best brow gel out there! My final makeup favourite is a new purchase, the Burberry Fresh Glow Foundation (No.11 Porcelain) which has become one of my favourite foundations of all time; it is fantastic for normal/dry skin and leaves my skin looking plumped, radiant and glowing but not greasy.

My favourite makeup brushes this month have been the Crown Brushes SS019 which is an amazing powder brush and the second is the Crown Brushes SS021. Both of which are inexpensive and high quality as well as being cruelty free which is always a plus in my opinion.

I have only been using one nail polish all month and it has been the gorgeous RMK polish in the shade EX20 which is a beige grey shade and I LOVE it. It is very similar to Porchester Square from Nails Inc but it is matte. The longevity isn't great (I need to find a good matte top coat) but it's a lovely polish, not just because of the shade but the brush and the formula of the polish to apply as well. 

Now onto a kind of skincare favourite, the Librow eyebrow enhancing serum, yes, it does sound odd but I've been using it for a couple of months now and I am noticing a massive difference in terms of new hairs growing, sparse patches are being filled in and I don't need to use nearly as much brow powder - the full review will be live at the end of February. 

My penultimate favourite is a shampoo I won last year, the Kerastase Bain Satin 1 Shampoo - it's one of the best shampoos I have ever used. It makes so hair incredibly smooth, soft and manageable as well as less frizzy and so nourished. I cannot say enough good things about this shampoo; I will be buying a bottle when this one runs out. A similar shampoo is the Loreal Everriche and as Kerastate is owned by Loreal, we can assume that the products are going to be similar. 

Lastly, a fragrance favourite, this month it has to be the amazing The Library Of Fragrance Lavender Cologne which I was kindly sent a couple of months ago and I've been using it non-stop. I adore the scent of lavender so this fragrance was always going to be perfect for me! I've even been spraying it near my pillow at night to help me sleep as I find the scent of lavender to be so relaxing! I only have about 30% left, I will definitely be picking up another bottle or if you have any lavender fragrance recommendations please leave them in the comments below.

  9. I love crown brushes! I have the brush that's similar to the MAC 219, though I sometimes find the bristles to be a little rough. And definitely going to have try the nude nail polish, it looks beautiful!
