Favourites: January 2016

The month is over which means it’s time for our monthly favourites. I have a few products I have been loving this month (as well as products I’ve loved for longer).

1: Kat Von D Monarch Pallet ($46.00)

I just posted a review for this pallet (you can read it here) and honestly what more can I say? The colours are gorgeous and I’ve been reaching for this pallet a lot this month!

2: Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in L.U.V ($20.00)

I don’t want to talk too much about this product because I will be writing a review on it but what you need to know is this liquid lipstick is everlasting! I put it on before I left for a night out and I drank and ate and when I came home 5 hours later it was still as bright and beautiful as when I put it on! I love that it goes on as a gloss but dries matte!

3. Kate Moss for Rimmel London Lasting Finnish Matte (not sure of price)

This is the first matte lip colour I’ve ever purchased and I haven’t regretted it! I love the feel of the lipstick and it doesn’t dry out your lips. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality considering it is a drugstore brand but that just proves that the more expensive isn’t always better!

4. Benefit Gimme Brow in medium/dark brown ($24.00)

I have searched high and low for a product to get my crazy brows under control and the only product I keep going back to is Gimme Brow. I love the way this gel doesn’t leave my brows feeling strange, it feels like my regular brows which is awesome! I love that it’s tinted because, while my brows are thick, there are sparse areas that I can thankfully fill with a sweep of Gimme Brow. I started using this product in the summer of 2015 and I haven’t gone back since!

5. MOODmatcher Lipstick ($4.00)

I received this in my December Ipsy bag and I was immediately drawn to it (not even sorry). It goes on clear and changes colour depending on your “mood” (I think it’s really just your body temperature but I honestly don’t know). This lipstick was my favourite thing from my December Ipsy bag and I still use it constantly! I love that I never know what shade I’m going to get (I usually get a pink or berry colour).

6. Maybelline Fit Me! Matte+Poreless Foundation  in Natural Ivory (not sure of price)

I bought this foundation MONTHS ago and only recently did I start reaching for it instead of my Lancome foundation. That being said, this is the best foundation I have ever had! The coverage is amazing and natural and I actually have come to prefer it over my Lancome (which I paid around $55.00 for!). I have a lot of redness and this foundation covers it while still giving me a matte look, I will defiantly be repurchasing this one after I run out!

7. Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes ($6.49)

I love everything Neutrogena has for their makeup removing line so naturally I’ve bought these loads of times. They remove even my most stubborn makeup and don’t leave an oily residue on my skin.

8. Smashbox Contour Kit ($45.00)

I am very new at contouring and honestly this step-by-step kit is my saving grace. I love that it’s a powder so I can easily erase (blend out) my mistakes and I have already hit pan on the contour shade. If you are a beginner at contouring or what to try out a powder contour kit I defiantly suggest this one! You can read Sylvie’s review for this kit here!
