January Favourites

Welcome to the very first monthly favourites of 2017!
I hope your year has been off to a wonderful start. Mine has started off rather slow so here's hoping things pick up as the months go by. Today I have 4 new makeup products from the drugstore that I'm very excited to share with you, so let's get right into what I've been loving this January.


Last year, beauty enthusiasts were going wild over how comparable this mascara is to Benefit's popular Roller Lash. I FINALLY got around to trying the Lash Sensational (better late than never!) and it certainly lives up to the hype. I don't own the Roller Lash however, the wands are incredibly similar so I can definitely see how this would make a great dupe. The inner curve of the wand is used to coat the very base of your lashes, and the outer curve is used to comb through the lashes to create that length and volume we all desire. It works very well and to my surprise, the washable version doesn't flake off or smudge during the night whatsoever. I can honestly see this mascara becoming a favourite of mine for many more months to come!

Covergirl aren't really a brand that I reach for a lot of which is why I wanted to change that. The packaging of these marbled baked blushes are super cute, and the shade 'Light Rose' is a gorgeous peach-pink that gives your cheeks a nice sheen. It's the ultimate Spring/Summer shade and the pigmentation is just lovely.

From first glance, it's not the most 'wow' looking palette so I wasn't expecting much. But the actual quality of the shadows blew me away, which just goes to show that you shouldn't judge a product by the packaging. 'Daytime Neutrals' really just speaks for itself and they are everything I love in a palette. It holds 4 shimmery and versatile shades so you can easily transform your look from subtle to dramatic with this palette alone. The texture of these shades are SO soft and buttery, and the colour pay off is amazing for a drugstore product. 


I featured this loose powder in my 5 Brands I'm Currently Loving and boy have I been loving it this month! It's in the shade 'Light/Medium' so it has a slight tint to it but it still does a brilliant job at baking. What I absolutely LOVE about this powder is how well it leaves my base looking flawless and airbrushed whilst keeping my oily skin at bay. I use this almost every time I wear makeup now, so I have a feeling I'll be running low on this powder very soon. I'll definitely be making a repurchase of this one, it's been very well loved.
