January Favorites

i personally love favorites blog posts and videos and i don’t really know why. theres just something so calming about them and they always extend my wish list even more which probably isn’i ideal. i really want to make sure to do a favorites post and video every single month and i can’t wait. to be honest, i’m really happy january is over. i don’t like january a lot and can’t wait for spring to arrive, please tell me i’m not the only one. 

i have been loving quite a few products over the past 4 weeks and a lot of them were christmas gifts and have been featured before but i just love them so much so here we go:
i got a big benefit gift set for christmas and it had a benefit porefessional sample size in there. i wasn’t quite sure about it as many primers break me out like crazy but its so good. it smoothes out my skin and provides and even layer to foundation. i’m gonna get the full size for sure. its beautiful.

one of my favorite palettes ever since i got it is the carli bybel palette from bh cosmetics. it has been featured on my blog before and is just perfect. its affordable and comes with buttery smooth eyeshadows and four highlighters. its seriously amazing. also carli bybel is my ultimate woman crush. i love her.

i featured the essence lash princess mascara a few posts back and it just had to be my favorite this month. the way it makes my lashes look is amazing. it adds so much volume to them and it is so affordable too and its easy to take of but doesn’t smudge in the slightest.

in terms of skin care i had to share and all time favorite once again. its the body shop camomile cleansing oil. it is hands down a holy grail item as it takes down all my make up in such a gentle way. its beautiful. i have been using something else in december and when i got myself a new bottle of this one i realized how brilliant it is. i’ll never use something else.

i love my body and skin oils and i like using shower oils a lot. probably the best smelling one is the rituals sakura and rice milk foaming shower oil. it smells heavenly. sweet but fresh and the smell lingers without being too much. it also feels so silky soft on the skin and leaves it feeling that way. to me, rituals does products that make me feel so beautiful and pampered and i love that.

to me, perfumes make an amazing gift and my favorite was a christmas gift once again. its dolce & gabbana sunset in salina. the original light blue is such an airy, fresh and feminine day tim scent and this special edition has something a bit warmer and deeper to it but its still so airy and perfect for day time. i love it so much and you should give it a sniff if you are after a day time scent.

last but not least a fashion item. its the quay australia my girl sunglasses. they are the perfect cat eye shaped mirrored sunglasses and they look so cool. quay has been all over the blogs and rightly so. i think they do amazing styles which are very on trend and i will surely get more.

so here we go. my january favorites. let me know what your favorite products have been? i’d love to know.
