January Favourites

Hi everyone! I haven't done a favourites post in so long because I was being very boring and using the same products ALL the time, however in January I've mixed it up a bit and have found some new products that I've absolutely loved! 


- Lush American Cream hair conditioner (250g £9.25). I bought this at their Oxford street store when I was in London after seeing people always raving about their hair products and I'd never actually tried any of them. I picked this one because I absolutely love the smell, it's like a strawberry vanialla milkshake, I love it! The best thing though is I just find that my hair is so much nicer after using it and I find it far easier to tame and make it do what I want, plus I feel like the bottle will last ages so that's always a bonus!

- Nivea Vanilla & Macadamia Lip Butter (£1.99). I got this in a little set of lip tins for Christmas along with a coconut one and I was unsure before I actually smelt it because I really hate nuts, it doesn't smell nutty at all though it has the most amazing vanilla smell, reminds me of baking or cookies! Plus it is so moisturising, my lips feel amazing after I use it. I just really like these because they are so good to put in your bag to use all day, but this is the scent I would recommend because it's so good!

- Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara (£7.99). I am so late to the party with this one! I was using Benefit's Roller Lash and I bought one tube of that and loved it, then bought another when it ran out and it was just never the same, I really didn't like it and I have no idea why it wasn't as good, so I knew that everyone absolutely loved the Maybelline mascara and it's so much cheaper as well so in my head it was a bonus if I liked it because repurchasing wouldn't be as painful! I am so happy it didn't disappoint I absolutely love it! It makes my eyelashes look so much longer and it doesn't make them go clumpy at all, plus it's far less messy than a lot of mascaras I have used where I get it everywhere but I haven't had that problem at all with this.

- MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft & Gentle (£24). I've had this for a while now but I stopped using it when I got the Mary Lou Manizer however I recently dropped and smashed it (it was so sad) so I went back to this to save my buying another and fell in love with it all over again! It gives such a nice subtle glow, I think it is not as in your face as some highlighters but I actually like that because the glow it gives is so natural, but still definitely noticeable! It's also perfect for fair skin tones, and I am so pale at the minute so it works perfectly.

- Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick in Bitch Perfect (£23). The formula of these lipsticks are so amazing, definitely my favourite formula of any lipstick I've used, but I really love this shade because it's such a good day or night lipstick. It's a slightly warm toned pink and I just think it is the prettiest nude shade and I've been loving it for nights out recently, even though it's so creamy it also has really good staying power.

- Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla (£22). Another product that I'd had for a while and stopped using, however this month I got the worst spot ever on my chin (if I ever get spots that's where they go it's so annoying) and I should of left it alone however I didn't, as none of us do and it went bright red and even bigger so I was having a nightmare! I actually had work on the night and I was so upset in that I had this monster on my chin for everyone to see, however this concealer covered it up so well that it was barely noticeable I couldn't actually believe it. I saw my boyfriend on the night when he picked me up from work and he was all "you can't even see it" then I took my make up off and he just said "oh my god", that's when you know you've got a good concealer! If you want a heavy duty concealer with amazing coverage I would definitely recommend this! 

- The Body Shop Strawberry Hand Cream (£4). I've been so obsessed with this all month, it's so affordable and the perfect hand bag size plus it is honestly the nicest smelling hand cream I've ever smelt! It isn't greasy either but it leaves your hands so moisturised, I will probably continue loving this until I've used it all because it smells so good!

I also have been loving one non-beauty favourite in particular, and when I saw loving I mean full on obsessed, basically I'm a die hard Big Brother fan! I've watched it for years now and I get so into it every year, however the Celebrity version is on currently and it has been so amazing and so engrossing! If any of you have seen it or have heard about the Stephanie and Jeremy drama that is definitely the main thing that's had me hooked, it's just made the best TV! I could actually go on about it for so long, but I won't because I know a lot of people really don't like it, it's definitely a love or hate thing. Definitely excited to see the back of January now, let me know in the comments what products you've been loving this month!

  11. I've tried the Nars concealer and it was one of the few that I quite liked,, the price tag compared to drugstore concealers has been putting me off but I might just give it a go! I collect more of the Body Shop hand creams than I put on haha, the almond flavour smells lovely too :)

  31. I have the Maybelline mascara too and for me it was pretty good but I found that it dried out very quickly, which is why I am a bit disappointed now :(
    I do also have a Nivea lip butter, but the blueberry one and I like it for the creamy consistency and the great smell! They are really moisturising and a little goes a long way :D
