Beauty: January 2016 Favourites

February 4, 2016

I nearly didn’t do a January Favourites as I’m basically using everything from my 2015 favourites at the moment but there are a couple of new products I have been loving. The first being the Soap & Glory The Perfect Ten limited edition eyeshadow palette which I picked up in the Boots Christmas sales. I’ve not tried any Soap & Glory eyeshadows but this palette has seriously surprised me, at around £8 – I’ve used a lot of these shadows which are really pigmented and long lasting. I really am loving the shades Minky and Damsel.

I’ve also been using a deluxe sample of Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream and I have been loving it so I’m going to purchase a full-size one. The cream is really moisturising and one of the best I’ve ever tried. Kiehl’s isn’t a brand I’ve tried much of until I went to an in-store event last month. The midnight recovery oil is also amazing.

Peaches & Cream is a brand I discovered at The Clothes Show in December and I bought a couple of products from their stall. One of the products was their Halo Highlighting Powder, this highlighter is super pigmented and I’m really impressed with it. I also bought a couple of pigments which are also pretty amazing.

You might have seen my top ten lip products which featured Up The Amp by MAC*. Everyone loves a good MAC lipstick and Up The Amp is a gorgeous warm purple shade which isn’t too in your face but a really pretty shade all the same. It’s definitely something different to what I would usually wear but I absolutely love it.

I really love Marc Jacobs fragrances, there isn’t one that I don’t like. When Fragrance Direct got in touch and sent me Daisy Dream by Marc Jacobs* I was thrilled, it’s one I haven’t owned before but I’d smelt it numerous times in the beauty halls of different department stores. I do love a good floral and fruity scent and Daisy Dream is right down my alley and also the bottle is totally adorable.

I really wanted to include this amazing mug from Truffle Shuffle from their new Little Miss Mugs, I’ve got the Little Miss Blogger mug which is so cute, they also have Little Miss Sassy, Selfie, Social Media and a few more! Another favourite for January is Pretty Little Liars, I’m so happy that it’s back on our screens. So those are my January Favourites, quite a few items considering I wasn’t going to do a post!

What have you been loving recently? Have you tried any of these products?
