Welcome to my first monthly favourites post! Another month has been and gone, and I must admit that I’ve had a great month. I turned 18 and went to London for the first time. I must admit that I have taken a little time away from social media, as I got a little addicted to playing The Sims 4, but I’m back and ready to share my January Favourites 2015.
Barry M Gelly in Rose Hip
I know darker colours are all the rage in the Winter, but I love a baby pink. This colour stood out to me straight away and it doesn’t look chalky when applied and most importantly it doesn’t clash with my skin tone. The Gelly range from Barry M is my favourite, as I love the glossy finish. I’ve had this colour on my nails pretty much all month.
Soap and Glory Cat Eye Eyeliner
I have tried a lot of eyeliners, but I’ve never stuck with one; that was until I tried this one. I’m not the best at winged liner, but I haven’t struggled at all when I’ve used this one. Which is huge, as I normally have to get the tape out to help me get that perfect flick. This is definitely my new go to, and I will repurchase for sure.
Rimmel Kate Moss Lipsticks in 08 and 05
08 is pictured first and is a pretty mauve shade. 05 is second and is a lovely warm fuchsia with a hint of red. As you can tell from the photos I wear 08 a lot, as it is my go to nude. It’s such a flattering shade that is really easy to pull off. Even though I haven’t worn 05 as often I still love it, as its something a little bit different I just need the confidence to wear it more often. These lipsticks have a matte finish, but aren’t drying at all. I also love that they’re very pigmented and glide on easily.
The Sims 4
I’ve been playing Sims for as long as I can remember. From playing The Sims 1 on the family computer in the living room, to the Sims 2 on my laptop and being in awe of my brothers builds. Which meant I had to get this, as I knew I had to try it out. In all honesty I haven’t played The Sims for years before this, as I didn’t like The Sims 3 as it ran too slowly on my computer which made it unplayable. Where as I do think this game is a little basic compared to the first two, I still love it a lot.
Yankee Candle – Season of Peace
I know scents are hard to describe, but I had to include this candle. Season of Peace is a part of the Christmas collection which means it is limited edition, so I have to stock up for the year. I have well and truly fallen in love with this candle, it’s more musky compared to the typical spicy scent you get a lot at this time of year. If you get a chance to try this then I would definitely recommend it.
Those were my January Favourites 2015
