January Favourites 2019

Well it might be a new year, but I’m still posting late apparently. I know we’re well into February now, but it’s time to look back on January for a monthly favourites.

Anastasia Beverly Hills | Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit – Kitty Kat

I was unsure on whether to include this or not. This palette was limited edition, so unless it is brought back; it is no longer available. On my bid to rediscover products in my collection, I was loving this palette. The shade Kitty Kat is the one I gravitated to the most. In the pan it looks very pink. When swatched and applied it looks a lot more silver with a hint of pink. It is very pigmented which I love.

ColourPop | Super Shock Highlighter Spoon

After wearing Kitty Kat I thought it was too dark for my skin tone, so I’d add a little bit of this over the top to lighten it a little. I have mentioned this on the blog before, as it was one of my 2017 favourites. With this highlighter you really don’t need that much. The tiniest amount goes such a long way, as it is a chunky glittery highlight.

Too Faced | Hangover Setting Spray

This is another classic that I reviewed back in the day, but I’ve been using it every day since Christmas. This is great in the Winter, as it’s best for those with dry skin. It’s very hydrating and my foundation looks a lot better after using this. I only use this for setting makeup, but it is three in one. The scent on this isn’t that great, and it took me a while to get used to it.

Violet Voss | Fun Sized Eye Shadow Crème Brulee

I have been thinking about doing a full review on this, so I won’t go into too much detail here. I love my gold and brown shades, so of course I love this. I’ve mainly used the second and third shades on the top row from the left and the two underneath those. This palette doesn’t have shade names, so it’s a little hard to describe. It does however have a mirror, which I know a lot of people like. The only downside for me, is that there isn’t a good matte transition shade.

Viktor and Rolf | Flower-bomb

My boyfriend bought me this for Christmas and it’s all I’ve been wearing since. It’s very floral and sweet, which makes a great day time perfume. I’m not normally a floral person, but I love this. The bottle is also really pretty which is always an added bonus.

Glossier | Balm Dotcom

This is another Christmas present, and I have been loving it! It’s a balm designed to nourish and repair dry skin. This means you can use it on your lips or on any chaffed skin. I use this as a lip balm, and the tiniest bit goes a long way. I have the original version which is unscented. It is extremely moisturising, as it contains Beeswax and Castor Seed Oil.

My Birthday

On the 27th January I turned 22, and had a great day. I spent the day with my boyfriend who absolutely spoilt me. We went out for dinner, and then went for drinks later on. It was a really great day. I very nearly made a Taylor Swift joke, but we’ll leave that one for now.

That is everything I was loving throughout January!

What were your January Favourites?

    That Violet Voss palette looks so gorgeous! The only thing I have from them is their Holy Grail palette which I bloody love but I can’t say I reach for it that much anymore. I haven’t tried the Too Faced setting spray but my skin has changed so much and gone completely dry recently so I’m really tempted to give it a try. I wanted the Nicole glowkit soo badly and I’m so sad I never got it when it was around! The shades look to die for!

      I love it so much! The Holy Grail palette is gorgeous isn’t it?! Funnily enough I don’t reach for it a lot either. I think it’s fab for dry skin, so it might be great for you. Hopefully they bring it back, as it’s such a gorgeous palette!xx

    Happy belated birthday! Glossier’s balm dotcom is the best! Some people don’t like it but it is the one thing I use on my lips during winter that really helps. And that eyeshadow palette is gorgeous! I always enjoy reading your favorites.

      I love it so much! It’s so blinding xx

  15. 16th February 2019 / 2:29 pm

    I completed forgot that Colourpop sold those super shock shadows, I haven’t used a single shadow in ages! I’m in need of a new lipbalm as I’ve nearly at the end of my Kiehls one so I’m tempted to try that one. Happy belated birthday hun

      Remembering to use single shadows can be so difficult as grabbing a palette is so much more convenient. I love the Glossier one, it’s changed my life haha! Thank you lovely xx

  16. 17th February 2019 / 3:13 pm

    I really want to try some Violet Voss eyeshadows and these smaller palettes definitely appeal to me more than their giant ones!
