January Favourites

I usually begin these monthly favourites posts about how quickly the new month seemed to come around, but I know I'm not the only person that feels January seemed to go on forever and ever

That being said, now February is finally here, it's time for me to reflect on beauty products I've been loving the past four weeks (although it seems like it's been about eighteen weeks!)

Stila Brush #9 
The #9 brush from Stila is for "all over blending", i.e it's very versatile! I've used it for both buffing out eyeshadow -because it fits my eye socket perfectly - and also for applying highlighter. It's the perfect shape for applying a blinding highlight to the high points of my cheek bone, and it picks up pigment beautifully so it's easy to achieve an even application. 

Hourglass Ambient Metallic Strobe Palette 
I got this for Christmas from my mum and I'm literally obsessed with it. The shades in this palette are so glowy and bright, these highlighters are what dreams are made of! I used them on my model, Charlotte, in this photo shoot - just look at how beaming her cheek bones are!

Sukin Super Greens Detoxifying Clay Masque*
I've been loving using this clay mask lately, because my skin is still on the sensitive side. It's full of natural ingredients including kale, avocado and goji berries. It smells almost edible! But, more importantly, it leaves my skin feeling super soft, deep cleaned and refreshed. I love it!

Bobbi Brown Caviar & Rubies Palette 
This is more or less the only palette I've been using since I received it for Christmas. The shades are richly pigmented without producing ridiculous fall out. Especially the middle shade, which is pressed glitter. It's so pigmented! It's beautiful. The matte shades are also neutral and wearable, so unlike most holiday palettes, this is very practical. It's currently reduced (!!!) here - I highly recommend it!

Rodial XXL Lip Liners 
Whenever I've worn make up lately, I've been switching it up literally only between these two lip pencils from Rodial, in the shades Nude and Pink Espresso. I love the texture of this product, it's incredibly cream with a velvet-y smooth finish. They're perfectly matte and so, so pigmented. Lipstick layers over them beautifully.

Charlotte Tilbury English Beauty 
Third and final Christmas gift, I promise! This beautiful mid tone pinky nude is perfect for every day wear, but is also so flattering that, paired with a smokey eye, would be perfect for going out all glammed up! I'm so in love with this lipstick. This is a Matte Revolution formula, which I don't think I need to explain - Charlotte creates some of - if not the - best lipsticks!

Too Faced Peaches & Cream Lipstick Got Peach?*
This is such a beautiful colour! I applied it on Alix for this photo shoot. It's a bright and punchy mauve, it's not quite what I'd call 'vibrant' but this is perfect for a statement lip that's not too outlandish. The formula is so opaque and creamy and I adore the plushy matte finish. This is actually a little bit of a sneak peak for an upcoming post, in which I review the Peaches & Cream collection. So here's a little hint that I love the lipsticks!
