January Favourites

Sunday, 31 January 2016


   
Like a lot of people, I hate January, it's cold and miserable and I suffer from post Christmas blues. So January always seems to drag on and this year it's no different so I'm actually really glad that we're at the end of it. However, despite this miserable month, I have had some favourites to share with you.

I received this for Christmas from my brother and have absolutely fallen in love with it. I have worn it throughout January for both daytime and evening. I don't own many bold lipsticks and really wanted to try one, hence why I asked for it for Christmas, I wasn't sure if it would suit me, but I think it does and have loved wearing it. Like many MAC lipsticks, it's really long lasting, even after food and drink, but it doesn't dry your lips out, so it's the perfect combination!

Staying with MAC, another favourite this month is this lip liner. Like most other bloggers / beauty lovers, I adore the 'Rebel' lipstick from MAC. However, I find it really hard to apply because it's such a bold colour any smudges are easily noticeable and it doesn't take much to end up looking like a 4 year old who has raided her mum's lipstick collection! I hadn't tried a lip liner before, but decided to take the plunge and invest in this one. I'm so glad I did because it has made it so much easier to apply the lipstick and applies so easily. I don't want to go into too much detail as I have a post about lip liners coming from soon!

This month has really been about lip products for me it seems! I received this from my lovely friend Sarah for Christmas and having read a lot about the Urban Decay Lip glosses I was super keen to try it. I must admit, it's not necessarily a colour I would have picked for myself as I'm scared of the more brown toned lip products, but I am soooo glad that Sarah picked it because it's absolutely gorgeous, I've had so many compliments every time I've worn it, it's really long lasting and keeps my lips moisturised - what more could you want?

I have absolutely fallen in love with this palette and I have worn it constantly throughout January. I won't ramble on too much about it because I wrote a full review of it here. Again, this was another Christmas present (there's a definite theme this month!), but this time from my boyfriend. I was so excited when I opened it and it hasn't disappointed, I love every shadow and the shades are so versatile that I use this palette for both day and night. A definite make up essential for all beauty lovers!

5./Orphan Black 
Now for the random favourite - 'Orphan Black'. Emil and I had finished our latest Netflix series and were scrolling through to decide what to watch next. He spotted this and said that he'd heard good things about it, so we decided to give it a go. I found the first few episodes so intense that I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to sit through two seasons, but I got so emotionally involved that I couldn't give up. I would really recommend it. Essentially it's about a girl, Sarah, who watches a lady commit suicide and decides to adopt her identity, but in doing so, it opens up a whole new world to Sarah and several story lines follow. It really is so gripping and it's so easy to get through the episodes!

I hope you've all had a lovely month. Let me know you've been loving this January in the comments below.
