January Favourites Time.


This year I have decided I might not do a favourites post every single month as I realized that if I truly love a product i'll use it for months which leaves me with some months where there isn't much new. But! In saying that: January brought the goooods. Or should I say December did as majority of these beauty products were Christmas presents. So I ended up deciding to just do one this month as I have been a happy chappy with these products.
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer
This month I have really halted back on heavy daily makeup and opted for a natural looking face. This tinted moisturizer has been key as it makes me look as if i'm not wearing anything on my face. It has a light coverage, gives a subtle tint to my face, and makes my skin look healthy. This was a big winner.

Maybelline Waterproof Lash Sensational Mascara
I have raved on and on about this product in it's original formula, but this time i'm raving on about it's waterproof version. I start my new job in a week and I was after a waterproof mascara so I didn't have any smudging after an 8 hour day (also because i'll be an operating theatre nurse I wear a mask most of the time so my eyes are the main thing on display). Can I just say - for all you straight lashed people out there - this IS THE ANSWER. Curling my lashes and then applying this makes them keep their curl all day!! I'm used to my lashes dropping after an hour but this formula keeps them looking curled! Seriously recommend you giving this formula a go.

Kylie Lip Kits in 'Koko K' and 'Candy K'
Since getting these..I haven't worn anything else. Literally. Okay except maybe lip balm on days when i'm too lazy to wear any make-up. Besides that these have been my go-to. I know....I know...people think these are over-hyped but people need to chill. These are great. They don't feel too drying and these shades are so easy to wear.

SK-II Facial Treatment Essence
Disclaimer: THIS IS CRAZY EXPENSIVE so I am sorry if what i'm about to say makes you want to go out and buy it and then you realize it will cost you a limb. My mum bought it as a present for me as it was cheaper in Japan! ANYWAY. My skin all throughout December was weird and I kept having more breakouts than usual. This month i've tried to make a skincare routine a thing and since then my skin has gotten SO much better. It is down to this though. I put a bit of this essence on right before I go to bed and I wake up with my skin looking so fresh. I don't get the sorcery behind it but it has made my skin so good that I don't even mind not wearing foundation out as my skin looks great. Once it's finished...I feel like i'll have to buy it for myself..because my skin has never been better.
This Necklace (from the Silver Shop it said on the box)
One of my best friends bought this for me as a  Christmas present and I love, love, love it. I'm not much of a jewellery girl at all but I totally dig this as it's so lovely and dainty. I wear this pretty much every single day now.
Marks & Spencer Mandarin, Clove & Cinnamon scented candles
I know Christmas has come and gone but I will NOT be putting this away and saving them for Christmas. No way. This has got to be one of my favourite scents of all time. Before Christmas I had purchased myself one off the M&S website and I became obsessed with it. So my mum, the angel she is, bought me this set of 6 !! I have gone through 1 1/2 so far and still have five more to go. I do use them quite sparingly as I like them so much.

I think I had a great mix of things this month. What have you guys loved in January?
