I’m slowly recovering from the flu, and felt like it was the perfect time to do a post on my January favorites! Is it just me, or did January feel like it dragged on forever? I did however, rediscover some old goodies I forgot about makeup wise, and really enjoyed some new things that were in the December Boxycharm. I hope you enjoy reading this post!
PUR Cosmetics Soiree Diaries Eyeshadow Palette: $34.00
I’ve talked about this palette quite a few times but it still seems to always come up as a monthly favorite. The eyeshadows are the perfect neutral shades. I like how many mattes are in the palette, and how foiled the shimmer shades are. They feel like velvet and blend so easily.
Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Volume II Eyeshadow Palette: $25.00
This is another great neutral palette that I’ve been using a ton. The only downside is there isn’t a matte transition shade to use. I find that I use this a ton with the PUR palette I just talked about above. The colors really compliment each other. The gray shadows in this palette aren’t as blue toned, so they are very wearable, even if you are have neutral or warm undertones.
RealHer Blush Kit: $32.00
This was one of the products I got in my December Boxycharm. I absolutely love the shades in this kit. The mid-tone pink, coral, and brown offer a wide variety to compliment whatever look you are doing. The brown tone especially is great when you don’t want a bright blush and want something more neutral to mimic bronzer. I also love how sleek and compact this is. I will definitely be taking it when I travel this weekend.
BECCA Light Chaser Highlighter in ‘Pearl flashes Gold’: $17.00
I purchased this from Sephora a few weeks ago and have been using it ever since! It isn’t as buttery of a formula as the Shimmering Skin Perfector’s, but I am just absolutely loving the color! I really appreciate that it is more of a yellow gold than orange, because it compliments my skin tone a little better, since I’m pretty fair. They have 5 other beautiful shades you can also try. It’s discounted on Sephora and Becca.com at the moment, so make sure you pick one up!
Tarte Tarteist Last Paint Mascara: $23.00
This was the other product from my December Boxycharm that I’ve really been loving. It’s a very black mascara with a plastic applicator. It grabs the lashes and gives them a good curl. It also comes off easily with a makeup wipe, and doesn’t pull at your lashes.
Tarte Shape Tape Concealer: $27.00
I always forget how good this concealer is until I stray away and come back to it. I was using the Benefit Boing Hydrating Concealer, which in my honest opinion isn’t the best, but I want to use it up. I went back to the Shape Tape and it is just so blendable and full coverage, I don’t think I will ever find anything better than this. I have the shade Fair, but I think if I get it again I will buy a shade darker.
Those are the products I have been loving for the month of January! Please like this post if you any of my favorites were also yours for the month, and don’t forget to follow my blog for more beauty insight.
