My January Favourites

It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating the new year, I can't believe it's February already! Here I give you my very first monthly favourites!


Alpha H Liquid Gold: A little fun blog trivia: my very first review on the blog was one on this product! A year and a half on, my feelings on it remain unchanged. It's my go-to product on the lazy nights when I can't be bothered to do my whole routine, but still want to wake up to a bright complexion. During this time of year, my skin tends to go a bit dry and patchy, but this always comes to the rescue! Not to mention, it helps any acne scarring fade away that bit faster, which is always a bonus. It's definitely a must have product in my book. 

Lola by Marc Jacobs EDP: Don't be fooled by the big flower on the top, this perfume is not a "spring/summer" only one by any means. It is a very versatile scent, which can be worn during the day or night and not feel out of place. I find it to smell very sophisticated and kind of "grown up" and although I gotta say I hate the packaging, it's one of my favourite scents. You can read my review on it right here.

MAC's Ruby Woo: Aaah, my most favouritest lipstick ever! I am always tempted to just wear it every day. I think it's the shade that suits me the most out of all the lipsticks I own. Not only that, I love the way I feel when I'm wearing it. It's funny how much confidence make up can give you. I specially love it on the winter months to brighten my day up! haha

MAC MSF in Soft & Gentle: Another product perfect for the winter months. Whenever your complexion needs a little pick me up, this is amazing! I love that the powder is really finely mild, so it doesn't look like just a bunch of glitter on your face, it just gives off a nice glow! I also like to apply it on the inner corners of my eyes with a small pencil brush, it looks beautiful!

Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream: This is nothing like a cream at all, it's really more of a multi-use balm. My lips get so dry during winter, they can crack and hurt like a beyotch. So I like to apply a layer of this before I go to sleep and my lips are still perfectly moisturized when I wake up. I also like to put it on any scrapes, scratches or other dry patches and it works like a charm!

What are you January favourites? x
