Oh my.. 1/12 of the year has passed already. Before we know it 2016 is going to be right around the corner! Thats too crazy to think about so today I will be sharing with you today my January favorites. Surprisingly I have quite a bit of makeup product because I normally only have about one or two.
Maybelline Dream Lumi Brightening Concealer (Ivory) – I’ve had this product for awhile now but have never really cared for it because I didn’t it did much. One random no make up day this month I decided that my under eye area needed some brightening just to make me a little bit more awake so I applied this under my eyes and parallel down my nose. It made such a big difference.
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer (Light2 Vanilla) – As much as I don’t want to like this concealer because of its price, it really is an amazing concealer. The color matches my skin perfectly and it blends out nicely without it creasing or caking up. I would say that this is a medium to full coverage because it just depends on how much product you apply on.
Jouer Matte Moisture Tint (nude) – I have waited so long to finally try this and I absolutely LOVE it. It feels like a liquid to powder finish and it leaves your skin shine free without it being way too matte. Throughout the day it controls my oil without me looking like a shiny mess and its light weight and natural looking. Recommend this to everyone!
Laura Mercier Invisible Loose Setting Powder (Universal) – Super fine translucent powder that sets your makeup flawlessly. It mattifies your skin without it looking really powdery like how some setting powders can make you look.
Covergirl Lip Perfection (307 Seduce) – Favorite lip color of December and January. This to me is the perfect red when it comes to the tone (warm or cool) and vibrancy. If I want a regular red lip then I can apply this on its own or I can layer on a more brown lip color to deepen it into a more sultry red. It can be long lasting if your lips are nice a prep before application but once you eat or drink it will come off. I also don’t find this overly drying.
Ren Omega 3 Optimum Skin Serum Oil – Great addition to my skincare routine because it really helps to replenish my skin by adding a ton of moisture. Does not leave my skin greasy or oily.
NeoStrata HQ Skin Lightening Gel – I have a lot of hyper pigmentation from acne scars and every time I break out, a scar will form without a doubt. I was recommend this by my family doctor and I have seen a difference of my scars lightening a lot faster than usual. I’m still experimenting and documenting the progress so I can write a in depth review of this product.
One Line A Day – I’m sure a lot of people have heard of this book but if you have not then its a 5 year memory book. Basically you write a mini blurb about your day in this book for 5 years. You can write about anything you want. New friends you made, new experiences, what you’re thankful for, Goals, anything interesting you learned, etc. I have found that its a really great way to sit back, relax and really reflect on your day. We are all trying to get through one day after the next so quickly that it doesn’t give us time to just stop and think how was my day today? What did I do that made today such a great day or not so great day?
How did you start off your new year?
Until Next Time,
