january favorites | 2016

Hey Hey! I am so sorry I have been MIA this week… it was my Big’s and my 21st birthday this week, so I have been super busy and had no time to sit down and write… With that being said, today I will be sharing my January favorites with you guys! These are just the products I found myself reaching for the most in the month of January! Hope you all enjoy!!

The first thing on my list of faves is my Foreo Luna 2. This one says it is for “combination skin to deeply cleanse and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for radiant, firm, youth-looking skin.” I haven’t really seen a difference in that aspect, BUT it does make a difference in removing my makeup, and the way my face feels after cleansing. I have had this for almost two years, but have just now started using it again after a period of about five months. I really love mine and recommend trying it out if you haven’t already! The next item that I loved in January, is the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. I use this mainly at night after a more intense routine, when I use masks, medicine, face wash, and all of that good stuff. It is really great for sensitive skin and always soothes my face after my routine. Just a little bit of this product goes a really long way, I only need a pea sized amount for my entire face. This my favorite “night time” moisturizer at the moment! Now, I have Amy Head eyeshadow in the shade Cupcake. I use this shadow mainly as a base for my more taupe/brown shadows. In the pan, it looks a lot more sparkly than it actually is. When I apply it to my eyes, the sparkle doesn’t show up at all. This is just something that I have been doing recently in my everyday routine. Now, I have this Ulta Complete Eye palette in Indie. Even though I do not shop at Ulta anymore, I still really like this little palette! As you can see, it has some great neutral shades in it. I’m not a huge fan of the bottom right color, but it was a freebie so I can’t really complain. I have really enjoyed using the top two in my everyday routine! It is the perfect size for traveling, too, as it takes up little to no room in a bag. I have been really pleased with this product! This is the Physician’s Formula Powder Palette Mineral Glow Pearls in Translucent Pearl. The way I have been using this product is for a cheek highlight at school/ in my everyday makeup routine when I want a subtle glow. If you’re looking for an intense highlight, this is not your guy, but I have found it to be really great for a natural day!Still, on the subject of eyes, this is the Esteé Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Eye Pencil in the shade Slate. This is probably my third or fourth one in this shade. It is the perfect charcoal gray eyeliner. Esteé Lauder is my favorite pencil eyeliners that I have tried. They aren’t super dry or hard to apply, and I actually really enjoy using them! If you guys have any other pencil eyeliners-or just eyeliners in general- that you love, please let me know in the comments below! I’d love to try your favorites out! The last “eye product” (not really but kinda) I have for this month is this Amy Head Round Precision Brush. I have recently been using this to apply my inner corner and brow bone highlight. It also works really well for gel liner. The eye brushes are my favorite from Amy Head, they are the only ones that haven’t shed on me, for some reason. I really recommend trying out their brushes!

Lastly, I have NARS Super Orgasm blush! I have just gotten back into this blush again because I had been using a warmer Amy Head blush for fall and winter. (You can see my comments about the Amy Head blush in my November Favorites.) BUT, I have really gotten a lot of compliments about my blush when wearing this one! It is not as glittery as it looks in the picture. It usually falls out when I tap my brush before applying. I am so in love with this right now!

Well, y’all, that’s it for my January Favorites post! Thanks so much for reading! Please let me know in the comments below if you have used any of these products, and what your favorites were this last month!
