January Favourites

Thursday, January 30, 2014

January has been awfully cold here where I live, with temperatures as low as -37C...BRR! I'm quite happy that January is on its way out as we are now one month closer the warmth of Spring and Summer.

One of my new favourite foundations is the bareMinerals Matte Foundation - I had heard so much about bareMinerals for years but always figured it wouldn't be a favourite of mine...oh how wrong I've been! I purchased this mid December and have been wearing it almost (switching between this and Jouer Matte Moisture Tint) daily! Wonderful coverage that is adjustable with brushes, lasts ages, and doesn't oxidize. Although it is the matte formula I'm not looking flat or lifeless at all! It really is wonderful.

This past month I have really gotten into blush. I never used to wear it daily but all month I have been reaching for it every single day that I've been wearing makeup. I've talked your ear off on how much I love the Tarte blushes, but one sneaky little blush I haven't mentioned too much is the beautiful blush by NARS in the shade Deep Throat. It is a beautiful pink with *slight* shimmer. Sephora labeled it as a peach, but personally I see a lot more pink then I do peachy coral. I apply this higher up on my cheek bones then the apples to sculpt my face a little.

For my eyes I have been loving wearing a wash of NARS Cyprus all over my lid with a bit of MAC Sumptuous Olive in the outer V with MAC Wedge in the crease. Cyprus is a beautiful bronze with shimmer that I personally find has a hint of green or olive to it. Lovely shade!

Lastly for January I have been loving two lipsticks. Lipsticks (like blush) are something that can completely transform your makeup by making you appear more lively and awakened. I have talked so much about the Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Streak so I will let you read the full review of this lipstick right here. The second lipstick I am completely in love with is Hot Gossip by MAC. It in the cremesheen formula and is a beautiful pinky plum. Very similar to my all time favourite lipstick by MAC - Syrup. It is perfect for everyday and is semi sheer - which can alter the average wear time. For me shade is perfect as I don't look to good in the classic nudes.

  1. It has been way too cold here. I can't wait until it warms up.
    The Urban Decay Revolution lipsticks sound and look fantastic. I have my eyes on Streak but we'll see what else I like when I go to swatch them some time this month.

    1. Looking forward to seeing which lipstick you decided to pick up!

  2. I've wanted Deep Throat for so long (NARS make me write the weirdest sentences), but I hadn't heard much about that eyeshadow before. It looks really pretty and wearable. x

    1. Oh I know! NARS makes the most scandalous names ever that make me feel so awkward to say! hahah :) and oh yes it is soo beautiful! I love that shadow :)
