Luxie Beauty Flat Definer Brush 221: I received this makeup brush in my February ipsy bag, and I already own roughly 30 makeup brushes so it wasn’t like I needed the brush or anything, but it’s a great brush. This one specifically is for defined application, and cost $12.00 on their website, however you can purchase a set of 5 brushes for $45.00 on their website, as well. The bristles are extremely soft, and the brush itself is probably the prettiest brush I have ever owned and even looking at it makes me very happy. Also, the brushes I already owned cause a lot of static electricity when they come in contact with my hair, which the Luxie brushes don’t. AND, they’re cruelty free. #loveanimals

Tea Tree Blemish Fade Night Lotion: I don’t have  a picture of this product, so I used a photo from The Body Shop’s website, which shows how often I use this product. Tea Tree is my favourite brand, so you’ll be seeing a lot of Tea Tree products form me with my favourites. This month, I’m writing about my absolute favourite product by them, the blemish fade night lotion. I’ve been buying this product for years. It’s a small bottle and costs $20.00 at The Body Shop, which can seem like a lot but it is so worth it. I apply it at night before bed and don’t wash it off until the next morning either when washing my face or showering. It cleans your pores overnight and diminishes the look of blemishes while you sleep! I don’t do anything extra other than one squirt or the lotion and rubbing it in (which feels great, by the way). The bottle will last me anywhere between 3 months- a year depending on how often I use it and how much I use per night.

Baléa 3 in 1 Cleansing Cloths: I like this product for similar reasons as to why I love the Tea Tree Lotion: because it’s easy to use with minimal effort. Whenever I go to a friends house or a friend comes to mine, I don’t really feel like going to the washroom and spending 10-20 minutes washing my face. What I do instead is grab a face wipe, and rub off all of my makeup using it. I replace washing my face with this product when washing just seems inconvenient. It’s also an eye makeup remover, so it works with taking off tough makeup, like mascara, eyeliner, and eyebrow products. It’s also very moisturizing and feels great when using it. The only downside is that it only comes with 15 wipes in a pack, so they don’t last long.

CoverGirl Clean Sensitive Skin Pressed Powder: This is the pressed powder that I have been using almost my whole walk with makeup. The reason behind this is because it is so cheap and still works! It’s made for sensitive skin, so my skin is never irritated when using it. It also evens out skin tones and red spots if you’ve got any, and has a flawless finish that does not make me look like I’m covered in makeup and is in fact looks very natural. I buy it at Walmart for $6.97 and one compact can last for 6 months- 1 year. As you can see in the picture, it’s time for me to get a new one. I literally use this product every day, because it looks so natural. Putting it on does not agree to a commitment of applying a whole face worth of makeup, because it blends right in.

Favourites: January 2016

1.  Tea Tree, Flawless BB Cream

This foundation is definitely my favourite that I’ve ever used, and Tea Tree is one of my favourite brands, so it makes sense that it would be on my favourites list. Tea Tree is amazing for oily, blemished skin, like mine. It’s age-defying, and I don’t break out using anything made by Tea Tree. It costs $18.00 CAN at The Body Shop, and is worth every penny. It leaves your skin looking matte and unnoticeable of any traces of foundation, unless of course if you’re using the wrong shade. They cost $4.63 CAN on their website, and once again, it’s worth every penny. I used to pay more than that for

2.  EOS, Evolution of Smooth

I’m one of those people who are constantly putting on lip chap, so it would make sense that I would have a lip chap on this list. EOS is by far my favourite lip chap. I used to use Burt’s Bees, however one day when my lips were extremely chapped and cracking, I needed something quick, and the shop I went to didn’t have any Burt’s Bees, so I grabbed the hottest new trend of lip chap: EOS. By the end of the day, my lips were perfectly fine, and after raving about it to a friend, she bought some herself and told me it was great! I haven’t ever regretted that decision, and I’m never looking back. They cost $4.63 CAN on their website, and once again, it’s worth every penny.

3.  Smashbox, Full Exposure Mascara

Like it says in my bio, I’m more of a natural girl, so a mascara that lengthens my eyelashes without any clumps is a must in order to maintain that “no makeup” look. The Smashbox Full Exposure mascara is exactly that. I got a sample in one of my Ipsy bags (which is what is in the picture), and I’ve loved it ever since. It costs $25.00 CAN for a full sized tube at Sephora, which can be a lot for mascara, so I only ever buy it when I want to treat myself.
