January Favourites 2018

Hello beauties, Normally these kind of posts start with ‘wow this month went fast’ but I swear January was the longest month ever. There’s always a huge expectation for a new year new me and I must admit I’ve failed most of my New Years resolutions already haha!. Find out what I have been loving in the month of January!.


Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara

I spoke about this in my full face of first impressions post here. I have been using this non stop since, I love the packaging and the thick wand and it gives you full yet natural looking lashes. It’s also infused with coconut oil so doesn’t make the lashes look clumpy.

Quick Fix Facials Vitamin C Miracle Mask

I have recently added this into my skincare regime and I am super pleased with the results so far, it is a gel that you apply to your skin overnight once a week. When i wake up the next morning my skin looks brighter thanks to the vitamin C. It is super gentle on my sensitive skin too!. The best part of the product is that it was only £4.99!.

NYX Professional Makeup Pore Filler

If you suffer from large annoying pores like me then I really recommend this, it is a great dupe for the Benefit Porefessional and shrinks them down and provides a smooth even base to apply your make on. I have noticed how much better my makeup looks since using this!.

Benefit GALifornia sunny golden pink blusher

I wrote a full review of this here if you’re interested. This has become my favourite blush, simply because it gives the skin the most natural flush to it without looking like you have blush on. The formula is creamy and it applies like a dream.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation

In the week I am a busy mum to a four year old so don’t want to wear a full face of makeup everyday just to do the school run so I like to use a foundation that is lightweight and looks more natural. I picked up this foundation and have been loving everything about it, I’ve never come across a foundation with a doe foot applicator before and I find that it makes it easy to apply to the skin before using a beauty blender to blend out. It gives medium coverage and has a semi matte finish and lasts all day on my skin without a touch up.

Kat Von D Lock It Concealer

If I could marry a concealer it would be this one, I’m in love with the high coverage, the finish, the brightening effect, the price and the fact it doesn’t crease and doesn’t need setting. Enough said I think.

Laura Geller Gelato Swirl Highlighter

I did a full review of this stunning highlight here. I have been loving golden highlights recently and this looks so lovely on the skin and has a wet look effect. You can wear it natural or use a fixing spray to make it really pop.



Bargain Boots

I am now on a February spending ban but not before I picked up these amazing boots from Primark, they were £6 each in the sale. If you have a store near you then get yourself down there and grab yourself a bargain!.

Most of this month I spent staying in and either working on my blog or looks and scheduling loads of posts before I start redecorating and looking after a poorly four year old. So comfort was key this month, chunky knit cardigans, comfy pants and my comfy bras. The glam is real.


If you have a Netflix account then I know you have been binge watching every friends episode like I have. It’s such a classic and Ross and Joey are my favourites!
