January Favorites ‘17

I didn’t think I’d have many favorites this month but when I checked my list of things I’ve written down, I was pleasantly surprised!!



Although this was included in my December Favorites video (watch it here), I decided to put in the Merry Macaroons palette from Too Faced in again. I’ve been loving the shade Tiramisu and Chocolate Raspberry. It’s a stunning palette and I can’t put it down just yet.


One of the things I’ve been reaching for a lot this past month is my Rainforest After Dark Tarte palette. But I’ve mainly just been using the stunning bronzer shade. It’s perfect for my tanned skin on days when I don’t want anything shimmery and just want to go with matte bronzer. I have a full review of the palette here if you want to know more of my thoughts on it.


The Gimme Brow by Benefit is a common favorite and I’ve been really enjoying using just it on my brows with nothing else. It gives a little definition and shadow (I have Shade 1) but using it alone also gives you very natural looking brows which I have been loving recently!


This BH Cosmetics brush came in a set and it’s the angled blush brush. I have just found myself reaching for this a lot as it gives me a nice amount of colour and is very soft. Great value for money with these brushes too.


This Models Prefer brow palette has been another favorite of mine on days that I want a little more brow action. It has four powders and two gels and all are very easy to use and last for a decent amount of time.


This mascara is amazing for the price of it and I am so proud of how well Essence has done with it! I have a full review of it here so that you can see for yourself the difference it makes.


I’ve been finally getting more into using my wet and dry hairbrush and I can honestly say it’s been great! I find it’s easier to use on my wet hair and it doesn’t leave it frizzy or broken. I’ve been using this one from Michel Mercier for fine hair ad I think that if you struggle with very knotty, thing hair like me, definitely try this out!

I’ve also loved the song Not Above Love by AlunaGeorge! Give it a listen if you haven’t heard it before.

And those are all my favorites for January! What have you been loving so far this year?

    I would love to see a review on the Essence mascara, I purchased it too a few months ago and it didn’t work for me, too wet and my lashes looked like they were glued. Hope it works for you, maybe I received one that went bad since everyone is obsessed with this mascara.
