January Favourites


I didn't actually realise until a couple of weeks ago that I haven't posted a monthly favourites since my June and July favourites last year so apologies for that! I also recently posted my beauty favourites from 2014 which you can take a look at here.

I can't believe we are already a month into 2015! It feels like 5 minutes ago I was in London watching the New Year's Fireworks! I have a range of different favourites to share with you today, most of which I haven't previously mentioned on here :)

BEAUTY

By Terry Ombré Blackstar 'Misty Rock' | MAC Lipstick 'Patisserie'

L'Oreal True Match Foundation LINK
I used to use this foundation about a year and a half ago now and as I had a £2 Boots voucher I decided to give it another go. It reminds me a little of NARS Sheer Glow from the natural glow and coverage it gives however I do find that this one does start to fade and become shiny a lot quicker. Regardless of that, it is slowly becoming one of my go-to highstreet foundations and perfect for daytime wear as it feels very light on the skin.

I've had my eye on this for a while and am so happy I finally decided to pick it up! It is a really nice shimmery mauve shade with taupe undertones running through it. It applies really well and has a really creamy formula. It also blends really well and lasts all day. A little pricey but definitely worth the money!

MAC Lipstick - Patisserie* LINK
 I was lucky enough to get this for Christmas from my best friend and it has been the only lipstick I have reached for since. This is one of their lustre lipsticks and is one of my favourite day-to-day lipsticks. It is really buttery and moisturising on the lips and quite pigmented although I do find that you have to re-apply it after a few hours.

Nivea Milk & Honey Lip Balm* LINK
This has been my go-to daytime lip balm for a while now. I love all of the Nivea lip balms and think they are some of the best highstreet ones you can buy. This is really moisturising and you don't have to keep applying it every 5 minutes to keep your lips soft. It also works really well underneath my lipsticks making them apply a lot better.

Zoeva Rose Gold Brushes - 231 Luxe Petit Crease and 227 Luxe Soft Definer* LINK
I have mentioned the Zoeva brushes multiple times now and most recently in my 2014 favourites. However, I don't think I have mentioned much about these two brushes alone. The 227 I use when blending out whatever eyeshadow I have been using and works really well with powders especially. The 231 blends the By Terry Ombré Blackstar and other cream eyeshadows effortlessly because of the pointed tip and then I will soften the edges a little more with the 227. They are excellent quality, definitely worth the investment and the rose gold makes them look even nicer!

Ghost Eclipse Perfume* LINK
So far my favourite perfume has been the Zara Woman Gold which I have mentioned a couple of times now, especially throughout 2013. I had been looking for a new one and smelt the Ghost perfume after hearing it mentioned by Zoe (Zoella) in August. It has a really nice summery, fresh scent to it and has definitely got rid of those January/Winter blues. I really like the shape of the bottle and ombré gradient, it looks really different to anything else I have seen. This has definitely become one of my favourite perfumes!

HAIR, BODYCARE, CLOTHING, TV


Soap & Glory Hand Dream Super Cream* LINK
Throughout Winter, my hands have been very dry and after receiving this for Christmas, I thought it would be the perfect time to give a try. This is definitely the best hand cream I have ever used! After using this just once, the dry skin had completely gone. I really like this as it works instantly meaning you don't have to apply it every 30-60 minutes. It sinks into the skin really quickly without stinging the dry areas and has that traditional Soap and Glory scent.

Garnier Ultimate Blends The Sleek Restorer Shampoo LINK BLOG POST 1 BLOG POST 2
I have mentioned this quite a lot recently since July and it has quickly become one of my favourite hair products. As well as it been really affordable and having a range of different products for different hair types, Garnier have really surpassed my expectations with this! It leaves my hair feeling really soft and silky and it smells like coconuts.

Toni & Guy Cleanse and Nourish Conditioner for Damaged Hair LINK
My mum recently had a treatment on her hair and can now only use specific products to keep the effects of it and as my conditioner had just ran out, she gave me this one. I have heard a lot about the Toni & Guy Cleanse and Nourish products but was never really too interested in trying them. This works really well with the Garnier shampoo and as it is for damaged hair, it leaves my hair feeling really smooth which doesn't disappear after blow drying and straightening my hair which has happened with a lot of other products I have previously used.

Primark Super Cosy Tights
If you haven't heard of these before and have a Primark close to where you live, you need to go and pick yourself up a pair! They have a 300 denier so are a lot thicker than the normal 40-60 ones and also have a soft fleece lining inside so you can wear tights throughout Winter without your legs freezing!

Broadchurch Series 2 LINK
Without sounding too excited, I'm SO happy Broadchurch has come back! This is definitely one my favourite programmes and after all the questions they brought up throughout the first series, hopefully now they will start to be answered. I won't say too much as I don't want to ruin it for you but I would recommend this to you in a heartbeat!

What beauty products, fashion items or tv programmes have been your favourites throughout January? Are you a fan of Broadchurch too? Let me know in the comments, I would love to hear what you have been loving!
