So, January is over and it’s been a really miserable, rainy month and it’s always the month I’m glad to see the back of! I’m looking forward to enjoying a warmer and hopefully drier month, as I’m a little fed up with the cold now and having to wear two pairs of gloves and big, bulky coats to work!
I’m well and truly ready for some sunshine! So, back on point and onto some of the products I’ve been enjoying using the past month and have helped make January a little more bearable!
First up is my current favourite perfume, Chloé. It’s such a classic, feminine fragrance and I love it’s warm, amber scent which is mixed with an aroma of roses – but it isn’t too sweet and I really love it’s rich, floral scent.
I prefer stronger scents as I like to be able to smell them on myself and this one is certainly a fragrance you know you’re wearing and one that people notice on you!
I received this Sanctuary Hand Cream in a Christmas gift set and have been using it everyday. I am so impressed with it! I love Sanctuary products and this hand cream has replaced all other hand creams I was using previously.
I hate hand creams that are sticky or greasy and this one is perfect because it absorbs instantly but leave my hands feeling really smooth. It contains shea butter and almond oil and really nourishes the skin.
It also smells amazing like all the Sanctuary products do!
I love bareMinerals Pretty Amazing Lip Glosses and this one in ‘Charisma‘ has been a particular favourite of mine recently.
I love coral/pink lip colours and this one is the perfect shade for me, it’s not too bright and can be worn during the day and it really makes you feel glamorous wearing it!
I love it for nights out and during the day, and the silky creamy formula is great for keeping your lips soft whilst wearing it. It has a super glossy finish which I love, as I prefer that over a matte finish and it’s really long lasting too.
If you prefer a more pink/nude lip then you will love their Pretty Amazing lip gloss in ‘Free Will‘ – another favourite of mine!
Lastly, is Nars Albatross Highlighter – amazing! I am obsessed with this highlighter! It is a very golden, yellow toned colour and the colour payoff and highlighted effect is stunning.
It blends beautifully and adds the perfect finishing touch – I use it on my cheekbones and brow bone and sweep a little over my cupid’s bow to accentuate the lips.
I mostly use it for nights out as it’s quite shimmery but I love a defined, highlighted cheekbone so it’s perfect for me.
I like using Mac Soft and Gentle or Urban Decay Naked Flushed highlighter during the day, but this is a definite winner for nights out and adds the most amazing shimmer!
