January Favourites

Can you believe it, the first month of 2014 is already over! This month I've discovered a few new products which I can't stop reaching for, one rediscovery, an all-in-one palette, a make up brush i swear by, and a sweet new fragrance. 

The tool - Real Techniques - Buffing Brush

If you're going to buy just one thing that i recommend on here, let it be this. Most people have probably tried Real Techniques brushes and for a good reason, they're just perfect. Out of the core collection this is by far my favourite and its probably one tool that i will always repurchase. I use it to apply and buff in liquid foundation as it leaves the most gorgeously blended make up that doesn't leave you with any patches or harsh foundation lines (a girls worst nightmare). The only downside is that you can only buy the brush in the core collection which is around £21.99, so it is quite expensive if you're not going to use the other brushes, despite that i still think its worth it.

The rediscovery - YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in shade 4 'Rouge in Danger'

How could i have stopped using this for so long? I went through a stage where i only wanted matte lipsticks so this one got pushed to the side but after trying it on again this month i have fallen back in love with it. Instead of my usual Ruby Woo Red, this is much more subtle and sheer on the lips which i can wear in the day without it looking too bright. It is really sheer but the colour pay off is still gorgeous. However, its one you've got to keep in your bag because it does need to be topped up quite a bit during the day. 

The New Scent - Victoria's Secret Body Mist in 'Dream of Kisses'

After buying 5 Victoria's Secret body mists in the sale that they had in Meadowhall, i decided to save the other 4 for when this one runs out. Ive got to say this has been one of my favourite things to wear this month, the smell is so gorgeous and sweet. To be honest i would never have bought it at its original £11 price mark, but for £2.50 in the sale i couldn't be happier.

The All-in-One - Sleek Face Contour Kit in Light

Since purchasing my first ever highlighter in this kit, I think I'm hooked onto the highlighter/contour bandwagon. The contour shade is perfect for my skin tone and the highlighter isn't too shimmery, which is nice to just put that bit of glow into your face without looking like a disco ball. The blusher isn't really to my liking, but its still nice to have it there especially if you're travelling you have all three products in one! 

That's all of this months favourites.. hopefully i will have a new post soon. Any suggestions please leave a comment :)
