January 2015 Favourites

January 2015 Favourites 4Oh look, it’s a very but not ridiculously late January 2015 Favourites! Since I was in Peru (travel entries to come…eventually!) in December I skipped those Favourites, and I decided not to do yearly ones either, so it was kinda weird getting back into the mindset. I actually had a really hard time picking my favourites this month, but all six of these products definitely qualify.

January 2015 Favourites 2First up in my January 2015 Favourites is an unusual haircare appearance. I use a lot of different haircare but last month I returned to the Boo Bamboo Boo Berry Colour Care Shampoo* and Conditioner* to finish them up. I actually decanted a bunch and took it with me to Peru. These have a delicious vanilla cake-like scent, and the best part is how nice and moisturizing they are on my dry hair. I don’t have colour-treated hair, but these are natural options that do a fantastic job. They will probably be in my February empties, and I’ll definitely be a little sad to say goodbye to them.

I also really loved the Mark Naked Love Hand Cream*. There are several other products available in that scent, and the body wash I have is great as well. It’s a fresh, peachy scent with a little undertone of freesia to soften it out, and the lotion is non-greasy and really nice on my hands. I have been using this at home because I have a hand cream in progress at work, but once that one is done I will definitely be replacing it with this!

January 2015 FavouritesAfter my full on gush-fest of a post for the Kat Von D Monarch Eyeshadow Palette* is it any surprise to see it in my January 2015 Favourites? These shadows are basically the definition of buttery, and the combination shades plays to my neutral love with a few that are different enough to make it unique. Love love love.

I also made a recent commit to use highlighter more frequently in my makeup routine and I just love the result. The one I’ve been reaching for lately is the Essence Cream Highlighter in Light Up!*, which was limited edition unfortunately. It has a pearly pink sheen to it, and is a cream that is very easy to apply. I love the subtle effect it gives, and you don’t need much, so I’m pretty sure this pan will last me forever.

I have finished up a Collection Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer in Fair and right not I rotate between two or three that I keep in different places. Unfortunately, one of them has a leaking issue and may have to be tossed soon, which is sad because this is a UK brand. The concealer is a pretty affordable option, and it’s really creamy and doesn’t cling to dry patches, making it great for healing blemishes. It also lasts all day. It’s easy to understand why it’s a cult favourite, and after my skin went crazy post-travel, I definitely got a lot of use out of it!

My final product in my January 2015 Favourites is the GOSH Giant Blush Stick in Shy*. I have all three shades, and I love them all, but I think Shy is my favourite right now. It’s basically a neutral cheek, and there’s something about it that works with every makeup look. I love the giant stick format, and the blush blends in very naturally. I definitely need to try more GOSH makeup after this! January 2015 Favourites 3That’s it for my January 2015 Favourites! The problem with beauty blogging is that I tend to rotate through new products fairly regularly, but every month there are a few things I fall in love with, and these are definitely them. I also try to always put new products in, instead of month after month of Benefit Gimme Brow and L’Oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder–but just know I was tempted!
