January favourites

Wednesday, 30 January 2013

I feel that January has been a good month for discovering new products! Good start to the year hey! My first favourite is mac eye shadows in general. But my favourite shades are naked lunch, a subtle shimmery peachy champagne colour, and satin taupe, a silver shimmery taupe. They are the perfect pair and mac eye shadows in general are of such high quality! 

Next up is the much loved origins drink up mask! Now, I admit it has taken me a while to jump on the bandwagon, but I simply did not think my skin needed this mask as it was quite oily. Well my skin decide to get dry, and I mean dry! But this beauty has saved it so much and smells like apricot too!

I love a good body butter, especially a soap and glory one! I got 'butter yourself' for christmas and have been using it ever since! It smells amazing, it contains orange and shea butter. It's really moisturising and softening too, but the scent alone has me hooked! 

Origins super spot remover was always a product I was a little sceptical of. I've tried many 'spot removers' in the past and nothing worked. Admittedly this is not a miracle worker, but it does a pretty good job of stopping a spot getting worse and calming redness.

Last but not least, I have been loving mac's prism blusher. Prism is a matte pinkish brown and is quite subtle and just adds that extra colour to my cheeks. Admittedly it doesn't show up as much as I would have hoped, so quite a bit of product is required to build up more colour.

What have you been loving?


  1. i love the origins drink up mask, i thought my skin was fine until i realised just how much my skin loves this, apparently it was needing some moisture :D

  2. The Origins drink up was a life saver when I used to have really dry skin and I love the Soap and Glory body butter

  6. Look at you with all this mac! I don't own anything from them, admittedly I dislike them, but still, fancy pants! ;)
    I stole a sample of the drink up mask at christmas (don't you judge me!) There was nobody to help so I just took a pot and filled it up, muahahaha. (3 pots actually...) It's really nice! I don't think I'd buy the full size, because I have dr jarts version but it smells delish!
