January Favourites

Hello Everyone :)

Where on earth has January gone?? I can't believe it's the first of February tomorrow (Fabulous February as it's both Nick and I's birthday this month!). Here's my January Faves...

M.A.C Fix+ - After neglecting this for a while i've been picking it up throughout January. My skin has suffered due to the clashing of the freezing weather and drying central heating so Fix+ has been a lifesaver helping to refresh my skin. And it's true, it does stop your make up looking all horrible and cakey!

Clinique Sparkle Skin Body Exfoliator - I'm really loving this exfoliator, it isn't too abrasive and is really quite refreshing! Before this I had been using Soap and Glory's flake away scrub but sadly it was so thick that it had started to clog up my drain (gaaaah I sound like a housewife hehe) so it was time to move on...and i'm quite happy I did!

Babylis Conical Wand - It's love! Lately i've been getting quite a lot of comments on my hair and it's all down to this bad boy! It's so quick, you literally only need to leave it on your hair for 10 seconds and you have perfect boho waves!

M.A.C Devil May Care Eyeshadow - I picked this shadow due to the lilac colour, it is beautiful!!! I've been using this quite a lot this month to lighten up my dark eyes that i've been blogging about :D The silver side is quite chalky and full of chunky glitter but teamed with fix+ is quite nice for a night out. Definitely 10/10 for the lilac!

M.A.C Peppermint Patti Nail Lacquer - I'm officially bored of winter and this has been my little slice of spring all of January!

Sephora Smudge and Eyeliner Brush - I heart this brush! Does what it says on the tin - I've even been picking this over my M.A.C brushes!

Sleek White Khol Pencil - This is a such a good quality pencil at such a low price! I really like the look that white liner gives to my eyes :)

Fresh Supernova Mascara - This mascara gives volume and length without going spidery or crispy and looks really natural! Perfect for everyday wear.

M.A.C Superdupernatural Mineralise Blush - This is a perfect pinkypeach blush. I wouldn't say it looks 'superdupernatural' and is extremely pigmented so a light hand is needed but again is perfect for everyday wear! For me, it makes a nice change to my usual bright pinks.

Lots of Love
Nicola

  1. I've been looking at that conical wand, I'm after the perfect beachy waves kinda look but it has to be simple to use as I'm incompetent when it comes to hair styling haha. Would you recommend it for a complete novice? xo

  2. @Jennie he he yes!! I'm rubbish at hair but I can use it! I think it's easier because you dont have to worry about using a clip (on normal tongs my hair always seems to fall out or get caught in the clip) but I think its easier because you're just using your hands to hold the hair in place. Most important thing is to only do small sections at a time I think. There's also lots of good yt vids showing you how to use it too :) xoxo
