So with it being a new year I have joined the band waggon of monthly favourites. Not only is this my first favourites blog post (with finally getting round to it) but also very excitingly this is my very first blogger collaboration! This month with the lovely Phaedra from Thats Tres Vogue. I’ve done my 5 beauty favourites for this month here and head over to Phaedra’s blog to have a look at all her lovely goodies (all links below)
Ciate nail varnish in Tweed and Tails– I tend to struggle to find the patients to sit down and paint my nails however when I do this is always one I reach for this lovely dark olive colour form Ciate. As well as being a lovely colour it is really long lasting so great for the lazy nail folk like me.
Maybelline colour tattoo 24hr cream eyeshadows (Permanent Taupe and On and on Bronze) – With not being very proficient with eye shadows trying to use brushes and blend shades and ect I love using cream eye shadows with them being simple and easy and only need you finger to apply. These Maybelline ones are great due to having a smooth and creamy texture but dry down quickly to avoid creasing and smudging. They come in a great range of colours and work well on their own, or layered as I do with these 2 and obviously with other shadows too.
Schwarzkopf pro styling power wax – Having never been one for hair products with my hair care routine consisting of simply just washing and air drying it, I thought it was about time, especially with now having short hair and not being able to just throw it up in a bun, that I put some effort into styling it a bit. This Schwarzkopf wax is great for adding a bit of texture to your hair and has been great at giving my curls a bit more bounce and definition.
Bobbi Brown creamy matte lip colour in Tawny Pink – Since the finishing up of my beloved Mac Mehr recently (really need to stop talking about that) and with my closets store seeming to always be rammed to the brim, in a mission to find a similar replacement I came across this lovely one from Bobbi Brown and haven’t taken if off since. This is such a nice and creamy matte lipstick which dries down to be nice and long lasting. Its a bit darker than my beloved Mehr but I still think its such a nice colour for your lips which will go well with many different skin tones.
The Balm voyage pallet (Volume 2)– I love being able to find a pallet which has everything you need all in one. This one by The Balm includes a great selection of products from its selection of eye shadows, all easy to apply and buttery in texture with a mixture of matte and shimmery shades. I tend to turn more to the browny/beigey shades but this pallet would give me the option to go a bit bolder if I fancied. With The Balm being known for their highlighter’s with everyone seeming to own the Mary Lou manizer this one in this pallet doesn’t fail to disappoint with it producing a lovely subtle shimmer to the cheeks. With still being a bit scared of contouring I can’t say I have perfected using the contour powder but that can stay for me as a work in progress. Being so versatile and compact this pallet would be great for traveling. Also this was another great T K Maxx bargin for me so it worked out to being great value for money which you can’t be love
