January Favorites

Just hold on a minute where on earth did January go? it seems like yesterday since I did my boxing day shopping going nuts in Lush buying nearly everything in the shop and before I knew its now its February! its just madness but that means we are a bit closer to Spring and warmer weather and less of the cold and short days.
January was such a cold month and had so much snow and ice, that I am kinda glad its over now and spring is round the corner, I can see the snowdrops and daffodils are starting to grow again yay!

Boujois bronzer and highlighter - I just love this combination and makes such a beautiful natural look and also an effortless contoured look too but not to over the top just subtle, just love this.

Barry M - Lash Vegas Mascara  - I was very pleasantly surprised by this mascara, its makes such a difference to my lashes and I don't feel the need to wear false lashes while wearing this mascara which is great!

Illamasqua Lipstick in Cherub  - I am very picky when it comes to lipsticks and I think its one of the main reasons I have over 40 lipsticks now as I can't choose a favorite but saying that I just love Cherub its a warm coral shade in a satin finish and its just an everyday shade that looks beautiful.

Barry M Nail Paint in Persian  - Barry M are my favorite nail polish brand and I just had to choose Persian as this months favorite nail polish as its such a gorgeous purple and was a dream to apply and long lasting without chipping!!

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Cherry - This is a such a time saver for me as I wash my hair every other day, this dry shampoo helps my locks looking as fabulous as possible everyday and I just love its scent very me indeed.

What are your January Favorites?
