January Monthly Favourites 2017

One month down of 2017, 11 more to go. Despite being ill for half of January (again), I did have a few favourites that I’ve decided to share with you from the month. So, without further ado…

MAC Whirl Lipstick

I bought this quite a few months ago and loved it then, but it somehow went missing and miraculously was discovered New Years Eve, where I decided to wear it and I fell in love all over again, so it’s been my go to lipstick of the month. This matte rosy brown shade is a nod to the 90s lip trend but with slight pink tones to prevent it from being a full on brown if you feel that may be a little too daring for your taste. It’s of quite a soft and smooth consistency and not too drying. It also holds up pretty well when eating and drinking (and I did drink on NYE, despite usually being a teetotal.) I actually bought this after seeing a Tanya Burr tutorial, but apparently this is a staple product for the one and only Kylie Jenner.

Available from MAC for £15.50 

Better Than Sex Mascara


I was given this for Christmas. I’d heard a lot about it from a Make Up Facebook group I’m involved in and then when I saw Rena Lovelis apply it in a little Snapchat tutorial, her eyelashes were killing it. It was the deciding factor of jumping on the bandwagon and I am so glad I did. This really amplifies my lashes and that’s a look I’m really quite fond of. It does take a little while to dry, but if you’re patient, then this is really ideal. Once set, there is no smudging or flaking and it’s also buildable in volume and length. It’s pretty water resistant and does a fab job in curling lashes. Definitely a winner right here. Is it better than sex? Well, I’ll leave that to your own decision…

Available from Selfridges for £19.00

My top 5 favourite vegan beauty products

Did you know that November is ‘World Vegan Month’? Of course, veganism isn’t just about what you eat, but the whole practise of minimising harm that comes to animals. I myself am a life-long vegetarian and try to bring veganism into my life where possible. In celebration of this month, I’ve listed my top five fave vegan friendly beauty products for you to check out.

Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick – £16.00

Kat Von D Lipstick

I had my first Kat Von D liquid lipstick as part of a limited edition set called ‘London Calling’ and it featured a mini size of the shade ‘Double Dare’. The formula feels amazing on your lips and isn’t too drying and it lasts for a fairly long time. It’s on the high end spectrum, but this is something I’d get on a special occasion or ask for as a present during Christmas or birthday.

Available from Debenhams

Barry M’s Speedy Quick Dry Nail Paint – £2.99

kiss-me-quick

I don’t often paint my nails but when I do, I love to use Barry M. Their quality for nail paints is incredible and this quick dry collection really does dry quick. I had the colour ‘Kiss Me Quick’ and it’s such a cute pastel colour, I love it especially for Spring/Summer time when you want to bring some colour to your look.

Available from Boots

LUSH’s Decisive Lip Colour – £14.50

decisive

I mentioned this in last month’s monthly favourites as I had it as birthday present from a friend and honestly, this is such a gorgeous shade! LUSH products never fail to amaze me and the quality is impeccable. I find this shade suits me for eveningwear and it does last for a good amount of time.

Available from LUSH

e.l.f’s Essential Little Black Beauty Book: Eye Edition – £9.00

little-black-beauty-book

This is such a great little palette. It’s small in size but there’s a lot of shades for you to choose from, meaning you can create endless looks! I think the price is fab considering how many colours you get and they’re of a good pigment, too.

Available from e.l.f

LUSH’s Shimmy Shimmy Shimmer Bar – £5.50

shimmy-shimmy

Another from LUSH and another I’ve mentioned in a monthly favourites. This is a great shimmer bar but I love the idea that you can use this as an actual highlight, since that’s all the trend right now! It gives you that shimmery glow which is perfect for a night out and if you like a shimmer bar anyway, then it’s really good quality.

Available from LUSH
