Monthly Favourites: January

Monthly Favourites: January 

Diesel 'Loverdose' perfume 
I was lucky enough to receive this as a christmas gift and it has fastly become my new favourite scent! For those who have never given this a sniff, please do! It has strong liquorice and vanilla notes, aswell as mandarin, star anise and dry woods notes which makes for a long lasting, gorgeous scent which I love! 

Loreal 'telescopic' mascara 
I grabbed this beauty in Tkmaxx for a bargainous £3.99! I'd heard a few bloggers and vloggers rave about this so thought I'd give it a whirl! It is amazing, my lashes have never looked so long (no exaggeration) and I've received no end of compliments since changing to this mascara! Unfortunately Tkmaxx no longer have it, but I wouldn't think twice about paying the full price for this. I love it! 

Bourjois healthy mix concealer 'vanille' 
This is my go-to concealer now that I've changed from the raved about collection lasting perfection concealer (which I do like). I found the collection one a bit drying and in all honesty I am just not a fan on the doe foot wand applicators when it comes to concealers - I find this liquid tube far more hygienic and easy to use! 

Rimmel stay matte pressed powder 
 I reviewed this powder earlier this month in this post, but this has now made it's way into my favourites and daily makeup bag, just thought I'd give it a shoutout. Nice on Rimmel! 

Real Techniques contour brush 
This has probably been my most used brush this month as I've been using my Chanel bronzer for contouring. The brush is the perfect size and washes very well, although I haven't washed it for this picture *bad blogger* 

Maybelline 24hr colour tattoo 'On and on bronze' 
This has to be one of my all time favourite eyeshadows, other than my naked palettes! It applies like a dream and lasts all day! It's super easy for on the go as you don't really need a brush to apply this, so it's great for everyday wear - plus the shade is gorgeous! 

Mac MSF Soft and Gentle 
Another product I have recently reviewed (you can read that post here) I am absolutely in love with this stunning highlighter. It really makes me feel lovely and finishes any look. My life needed some sparkle, and here it is! 

Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel 
I've recently been using this daily after leaving it abandoned in a drawer for a few months - and I really do like it! I use this for contouring and sometimes as an all over bronzer for the face just to add some colour. It's not the most practical of packaging, but it is beautiful nevertheless. 

Maybelline colour sensational lipstick - 852 'coral pearl' 
This beauty lives in my handbag, its a gorgeous coral shade which is super easy to wear and suits most occassions (day or night or even uni!) It's a your lips but better colour and I bloomin' well love it! 

Elf studio mineral powder brush 
Another brush has made it's way into my makeup bag this month! This mineral powder brush is an ideal size for travel as it's not too big but it's fluffy enough to use for a finishing powder or blusher! I really like the elf studio line brushes - affordable but generally awesome quality. 

Phew! Well done if you made it this far, thanks for reading! I'd love to hear some of your favourites too! Or have you tried any of the above?

    I've been wanting to try the healthy mix concealer for a while now as I love the foundation so am hoping the concealer is as good! :) xx

    1. Loverdose is so lovely! I use the healthy mix foundation daily (it's my fave!) so I'm sure you'd like the concealer if you like the foundation too :) xo
