Well didn’t that come around quickly? Yup, it’s favourites time and after the December/New Year favourites extravaganza it feels quite nice to be revisiting the best bits of the month again which this time round features some fresh ‘never raved about before’ products. Of course there are some obvious choices – especially if you’re a regular round these parts: the lacquer range I’ve fallen in love with, a serum that’s become a staple in my skincare line-up and some standouts from that Selfridges spree I documented. But there’s also a nod to a hairbrush that is all kinds of awesome and a pair of trainers that I’ve barely removed from my soles since purchase (I know – am I feeling ok?). It’s worth watching just to count the times I say ‘kinda’. *Slaps self round face*

    Once again this was an awesome blog/video on your January favorites! Loving the Smashbox palette the most but should concentrate on that serum you spoke about cause it does sound quite amazing. Thanks for sharing with us!

  • Ciara Pollock

    the palette is gorgeous, and I love the maybelline glosses x


  • Cassie

    The palette looks so pretty, but it seems so similar to the Naked palettes. I definitely want to look at those Maybelline lip glosses.


  • Linda

  • Jess

    Love the idea of mixing it up a bit with food and style posts! As long as we still get plenty of skincare too :)

    Great post,

    Re: upcoming drugstore video, would be great to see some affordable makeup options for us cool toned gals, particularly concealers, foundations etc. In fact a detailed post on skin tone and matching up makeup to suit would be fab as I’ve spent too many pennies getting it oh so wrong.

    Thanks ladies!

  • Sally Freeman

    I simply adore Smashbox shadows so I will definitely have to check out that palette the next time I am in Sephora! xx


  • Fabugloss

    I’ve been eyeing that Smashbox palette for ages! I just went back home to the US on vacation and sadly it was sold out everywhere. Maybe it’s the universe telling me I don’t need anymore neutral palettes lol!


  • Laurie Medina
