Hello! January has come and gone, and I have a bunch of faves that I’ve been loving lately! Most of these are old rediscovered faves (I’m on the no-buy!), but a few are fairly new to me. Let’s get into it!
Let’s start off with these two hair care products. First is the Batiste Dry Shampoo in the Floral and Flirty Blush scent. This scent is my favorite out of the bunch, it smells really nice and clean. I’ve been using this dry shampoo for years, and it’s just the best! When it sprays out, it feels kind of cooling, and really makes my hair feel clean! It does leave a white cast, but brushing it out makes it disappear immediately.
Next is the Kenra Blow Dry Spray. This is a heat protectant that is supposed to reduce blow dry time. I’ve also been using this product for a long time, and I love the smell (fruity with coconut) and it really does cut down on my drying time. I also notice that my hair is really soft after I use this.
Since dry winter weather leaves me with super chapped lips, I love to use a lip exfoliator every day. I usually just mix coconut oil and sugar, but sometimes I like to use this Lush Mint Julips Lip Scrub. This smells like delicious chocolate mint, and it really makes my lips soft and moisturized after I use it. It leaves an oily feel on the lips that makes them super smooth.
Another thing that I started using this month is this Sephora Solid Brush Cleaner. Where has this stuff been my whole life? I LOVE THIS and actually don’t mind cleaning my brushes now that I have this. I just swirl my brush (or sponge) into this and it’s like a bar of soap. It instantly takes all of the makeup off (even off the sponges) without being super sudsy, and it rinses clean so fast!! I used to have to sit there wringing them out to get all of the soap out, but not with this. It smells nice and leaves the brushes so soft. I’ll never be without this!
I have a few makeup faves, first off is this Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara. This is a sample size that I received in one of those mascara sampler kits that come out at Christmas. I am so surprised at how much I like this. It really gives volume and I get absolutely no clumping at all, no matter how many coats I apply! It doesn’t flake or smudge, and it really holds the curl.
Next up is this ELF Contour Kit. Being fair skinned, it’s hard to find a contour kit that works for me, and isn’t too dark. This one has a light and dark bronzer (both matte), a shimmery pearl highlight, and a yellow toned matte highlight. This has everything I need! The pigmentation is good, and the colors last. Love this little kit. $6!
Lastly is this Deborah Lippman polish in 99 Luftballons. This is a sheer red pink color with multicolor glitter. I LOVE Deborah Lippman glitters, and especially this one. Here it is on me:
Isn’t it so pretty and festive? This is three coats, and is so hard to remove, but totally worth it!!!
What have you been loving this month?
Thanks for reading! xx
