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

Review: Shadow Switch Dry Brush Cleaner

I’m lazy. Fact. I’m not afraid to admit it, either. I’m always on the lookout for things that can minimize any kind of chore. So, when I found the Shadow Switch Dry Brush Cleaner by Beauty Essentials online which was being raved about by beauty gurus, I felt like I had found what I’ve been looking for. If you’re like me and find cleaning your make-up brushes a pain in the arse (but still do it because you do not want that bacteria build up. Ugh.), then we can rejoice with this little beauty…

To sit at a sink for ages to clean your brushes, then wait for them to try and all that nonsense, is really time consuming and I could be doing other things (like writing a blog post, or binging on some sort of show or YouTube series… important stuff) but this is where all our troubles are washed (or dried?) away.

The Shadow Switch Dry Brush Cleaner is a little sponge which comes in a tin to use. The instructions on the back state:

ONE SIMPLE STEP. After using one colour, simply glide your eyeshadow brush around in the black sponge in a clockwise motion to remove the colour and continue applying your eye makeup using the same brush.
