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

Products I want to try in 2017

2016 saw a fair bit of venturing out for me with regards to products. I bought my first high end foundation, fell in love with various lipsticks and picked up a few eyeshadow palettes. In 2017, I want to venture out even further. They don’t necessarily need to be make up related, though there are a fair few I’d really like to try. I see so many bloggers and vloggers using some gorgeous products, some quite old since they first hit the shelves, but have never ended up in my possession.

Here are some products I’d love to try throughout 2017.

Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation SPF 10

I have heard endless praise from beauty babes everywhere about this foundation. While I find the Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation lasts a long time, I’d love to be able to compare the two to see what the similarities and differences are.

Too Faced Melted Matte Liquefied Lipsticks

I’ve seen these in a lot of Instagram flat lay pictures and Oh My God, they look amazing. I’m really into matte lip products at the moment and would really love to try one of these. I haven’t set my heart on a particular shade, though I must admit, this one in Miso Pretty looks really cute.

 

GlitterEyes PressedGlitter Romance Trio

There has been a major hype of these on Facebook and after seeing some gorgeous swatches, I absolutely need them. I’m kind of sad I didn’t discover these in time for Christmas and New Year’s Eve, but I’d really like to try a glitter eye look a few times throughout 2017.
