January's Beauty & Lifestyle Favourites

| January's Beauty & Lifestyle Favourites! |


Another month has come to an end and despite the dreariness associated with January, I had a great beauty month! January is always a bit miserable but it's usually a great month in terms of beauty products for me because I like save some of the new products that I receive at Christmas to try out during the month. And today's post is all about my top picks from the month! 

New Lipstick Finds:
I received the Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Colour in Angel for Christmas and I'm so glad I waited to use it until mid-January. It was a treat to open up the little box one dreary day last month and I've been using it a lot recently. I've been reaching for creamy, nourishing lipstick formulas as opposed to mattes recently and this formula feels smooth and hydrating on the lips and provides a satin finish. I've seen the shade Angel been described as a peachy shade but it looks more like a rosy pink shade on my skin tone.

Mac released their Lunar New Year collection during the month and I picked up one of the lipsticks. I opted for the shade Good Health from the satin range {one of my favourite Mac formulas!} and I'd describe it as a peachy nude shade with deep rosy undertones. But the real reason for the purchase was the packaging, of course! *insert winking emoji* I just couldn't resist the beautiful ombre packaging and Mac always have incredible limited edition packaging! 

A Dry Skin Saviour:
The winter months always take a toll on my skin, leaving it in a dry and flaky condition so last month I reached for the Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask to rescue my parched skin. It feels lightweight and doesn't clog up my pores. I have combination skin that leans a little more on the dry side but I do have minor oily areas on my nose and chin so it can be hard to find a product that will deeply nourish the dry parts of my face without clogging up my pores or causing breakouts. However, I've never had any trouble with the Moisture Surge range! 

Perky Pink Blushers:
I change what blush I use quite frequently but my two most-used blushes last month were the Sleek Rose Gold blush as well as Fenty Beauty Match Stix in Yacht Life. They're both similar pink shades with golden shimmer but the former is a powder formula and the latter is a cream offering. 

Evening Entertainment:
Cosy evenings in watching an abundance of tv shows and films, or devouring a good book with a cuppa and a few biscuits are some of my favourite ways to pass the cold, dark January nights. And this month, I discovered some new evening entertainment. Firstly, I went to the cinema to see The Greatest Showman and I'm not normally into musicals {except Disney films!}, however, I thought TGS was one of the best films I've seen in recent years! 

A recent tv series discovery is The Crown and although I only started watching it in the last week of Jan, it's made it to my favourites list because it is incredible - The cast is amazing, the music complements the show perfectly, it's filmed beautifully and I don't know much about the royals or their history so it's very interesting to learn about it. 


What were your January favourites?

Love,
