January Favourites

As I start the New Year, I have found many exciting products among other things that have easily become my new favourites! I always like to start the New Year trying out new things whatever it may be.

Urban Decay Primer Potion in 'Eden'

After not using primer on my eyelids for some time, I decided it was necessary considering how many times my eyeshadow has creased and not applied pigmented enough recently. This primer is great as it has a light tint to it almost identical to my skin colour so it blends easily and provides a great base for me to apply my eyeshadow onto.

Eylure Firm Brow Pencil Dark Brown

It's always a good thing when an eyebrow pencil includes a spooley as it means easy touch ups when travelling. This product has more of a creamy consistency rather than waxy. Personally my eyebrows are quite sparse at the front and then they become quite full. With the Eylure pencil it enables me to make my brow even and a little goes a long way with this product!

Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette

I'm not sure how much exactly I can express my love for this palette. It literally screams me and I can see myself using every single shade. There is a really good of range of neutrals but also a couple of different shades like 'Harajuku' & 'Danger' to switch up your look, also '1987' is simply beautiful.

Nouveau Lashes Ultrabond Strip Lash Adhesive

I've tried quite a few different lash adhesives over the past couple of years but this one is my favourite. It has never irritated my eyes and I find that I never have to re-apply my eyelashes up at any point with more of this product. You only need a tiny bit of this when applying lashes as it does stay very well.

The Fashion Book

This book is a must-read if you are a fashion fanatic, with in-depth descriptions of everyone and anyone in the fashion world and superb photography this book is certainly an impressive read. I've enjoyed reading this on my daily travels and its pocket size allows me to bring it everywhere so I can have an interesting read.

MAC Lipstick in 'Please Me'

Let me start off by saying that I'm in love with the purple packaging. If you're wondering why it's purple, well this colour was featured as a part of the Magic of the Night collection but this shade is part of their permanent lipsticks so you can still pick it up! It's a nice rose pink that beautifully enhances my lip colour.
