January Favorites

Time to represent to you my january favorites, here we go!

Skincare - One new product that I tried for the first time this month is the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Reapair serum, I've heard a lot of great things about this and I can say it really makes my skin feel great and gives a nice radiance to it!
This next product I've been using for about two months and it's the Dior Hydra Life Pro-Youth Sorbet Eye Creme, I really like the sorbet like texture and it really hydrates my under eyes, that can tend to get pretty dry. I want to try the Bobbi Brown eye creme that I've heard a lot about, but I will let you know later on which one I like better.
Lastly is my new The Body Shop Facial Brush With Lid, it's a brush that I use a couple of times a week after I've removed my makeup to deeper clean my skin, it gently exfoliates and cleans the skin really well, leaving the skin feeling super soft!

Face - The past few weeks the weather here has been getting pretty cold and my skin quickly became more dry, I've had the Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint Touche Éclat for about four months but it hasn't been until now that my skin has been more dry that I really started to like it. It has about medium coverage and is a bit dewy, so I felt that it made my t-zone pretty oily before. But now my skin is pretty dry I really like the moisture it gives!
Another face product, or cheek to be exact, is the Chanel Le Blush Créme De Chanel in 64 Inspiration I really like the flushed look it gives to the cheeks, but it has only been lately I've really started using it since I got a new brush that applies it perfectly, which I will come to in a minute. For a more in debt review of the blush look here.

Eyes - The Diorshow Fusion Mono have been into use a lot this month they are such easy one shadow eyeshadow look and are so pretty, I've already talked about them more here.

Lips - As mentioned earlier the weather has been very winter like the past weeks and my skin along with my lips got really dry, so I started using the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 01, it smells really nice of warm vanilla, it leaves a flush of color lots of shine and is super hydrating as well, so this has been my lip savior!

Nails - I think I have found my perfect spring/summer nail polish, I've already been wearing it a lot but I think I will get a lot of use out of this color in the warmer months. It's the Ciaté nail polish in Amazing Gracie and it's a beautiful light pastel pink, that will look great on tanned hands ;)

Brushes - the brush I talked about earlier is the Real Techniques Duo-Fiber Contour Brush that works really well with creme blush, it's super soft and applies the color evenly on the cheeks.

So that was all for this time, have a great day!


  1. That blush and lipgloss look lovely!

  2. And they are!! ;)

  3. I've actually wanted to try the hydra-life eye creme and the YSL foundation but wasn't sure if it was suitable for dry skin. Great review!xx

  4. I think they would be good for dry skin, since I've really started loving the YSL foundation now that my skin got dryer. And the hydra-life eye cream is great! :) Thank you!
