January Favourites

Seeing as it is February 1st today, I thought I'd share my January favourites with you! I've been using these products non-stop this past month and each one has found its place in my daily routines :) 

Stila Convertible Colour in "Gerbera" I picked this up near the beginning of the month and been using it almost every day. Its a beautiful cream blush (that I believe you can also use on the lips) that is so flattering on my skin tone. Its a creamy peachy pink that has such a nice consistency, and fairly good staying power as well. 
MUG Eyeshadow in "Badda Bing" I love this eyeshadow! I'm surprised that I don't hear a lot of raving about the MUG (Makeup Geek) eyeshadows, because they are fantastic! They are so pigmented and way cheaper than a MAC eyeshadow, but the quality is definitely just as nice. Badda Bing is a gorgeous dark brown with gold glitter throughout. I like to smudge this colour on my upper lash line in place of eyeliner.
Sigma E35 Tapered Blending Brush This has become one of my favourite brushes in my collection. It helps to blend out the colours on my eyelids, and makes it so easy for someone who definitely is no pro at eyeshadow application!
MAC Paint Pot in "Bare Study" This is one of my favourite cream shadows that I own. Its a nice shimmery champagne colour. It works well on its own or as a base under other eyeshadows.
Maybelline Full N' Soft Mascara This stuff is so hard to find in Canada! At least where I live. Only select drugstore locations seem to have it. Its such a nice mascara, it makes my lashes so fluttery and feathery, which is the look I really love. 
Clinique High Impact Mascara This mascara is another one of my favourites. It also gives nice feathery lashes, but builds more volume than the Maybelline one. As a pair, these two mascaras give me the nicest eyelashes! 
Chloe Perfume This is probably one of the most unique scents I've ever smelled. It smells very sophisticated, and kind of has a hint of rose to it. But not in an old lady kind of way! It smells very fresh and clean at the same time. Its quickly become one of my favourite perfumes to wear on a daily basis. 
Caudalie Vinosource SOS Thirst Quenching Serum As soon as I put a few pumps of this serum on, my skin feels so refreshed and hydrated. It smells really nice as well. The only complaint I have is that this seems to get used up really quickly! I just bought this at the beginning of the month and its almost half gone already. Does anyone else feel this way about this serum?
Biore Pore Strips These things are strangely addictive. Its so gross to see the junk that these pull out of your pores, but also strangely satisfying.
Nuxe Rêve de Miel Lip Balm I wrote a whole blog post on this balm, which you can read here. I won't bore you with the details since you can read them in the post, but basically this lip balm is so worth the hype!

So that's it! My most reached for products of January. Let me know in the comments which products you've been loving!
