January 2019 Favourites

The amount of products I have tried over the Holidays and January is insane! I knew I wanted to do a January Favourites because I was lucky enough to have a good list of products! I’ve tried my best to narrow it down and only talk about the goodies I have been using non stop!

Charlotte Tilbury Spotlight Hollywood Beauty Highlighter Wand $50

I consistently grab for the Highlighter Wand every single time I do my makeup. I love how easy it is to use and I love the glass like highlighting effect it gives the skin. To be honest, I am not someone who likes a blinding or metallic highlight, I think that it’s a lot more unflattering than people think. But hey, we’re all different and we all prefer different things!

NARS Orgasm Liquid Blush $38

So I went back and forth on whether or not I should post this since I haven’t bought a single product from NARS since they decided to no longer be cruelty free. To be honest, I’m still upset about it. I have a lot of NARS in my makeup collection because I genuinely love their products. But this blush was a Christmas gift from a friend and I have not put it down. And since I have been using it so frequently, I thought I should talk about it. Orgasm is a beautiful mid tone pink with a pop of gold shimmer. The consistency is a light but creamy liquid. I haven’t been able to dupe this blush. For whatever reason, liquid blushes are really hard to find, which is a shame because they are beautiful on the skin!

Fenty Beauty Rose On Ice Fairy Bomb Shimmer Powder $35

Ahh this is so pretty! Rose On Ice is meant to be worn as anything you desire! It can be a highlighter for your face and body. It can be a pigment for the eyes. I wear it on top of my blush and highlighter and it ties the two together so beautifully. I love the warmth it has and the luminosity it gives the face. There is a lot of product, this little guy is going to be around forever!

Marc Jacobs Topaz Flash See-quins Glam Glitter Eyeshadow $35

Topaz Flash (right hand corner) is a gorgeous taupe that I love to incorporate into a smokey eye. This eyeshadow is so glamorous, I feel beautiful every time I wear it. I love pairing Topaz Flash with browns, purples and greys!

Marc Jacobs Copperazzi See-quins Glam Glitter Eyeshadow $35

Copperazzi (top left corner) is a warm copper and it gives a lot of life to the eyes. I love pairing this eyeshadow with oranges, reds and pinks!

Milk Makeup Grind Kush Fiber Brow Gel $22

Hands down, the best brow gel I have ever tried! This is the only product I use in my brows now. I prefer a natural bushy brow since I don’t wax or pluck them and I naturally have a lot of hair. I used to apply soap to hold them down but I have stopped doing that since I bought this brow gel. Grind is a cool toned dark brown shade and a little goes a long way! I use a spoolie to spread the brow gel on the brows.

Lush Sleepy Shower Gel & Lotion $9.95 – $32.95

I am addicted to these body products! The way this smells is heavenly! Now that I have this shower gel and lotion, I honestly don’t have any need to buy or try any other body products. I don’t know what it is, but when I use these products I feel so good about my body, as cheesy and corny as that sounds. Sleepy products contain Lavender and Almond Oils, Tonka Perfume and Cocoa Butter. The Lavender in this is really soft and comforting to me. Ever since I tried the lotion, I haven’t been able to put it down. I received the shower gel in a gift set for Christmas and I love it just as much. I want Lush to create a Sleepy perfume because I am THAT obsessed with this scent!
