January Makeup/Beauty Favourites

Hello! So, these are just a few products that I have been using and loving in the month of January.

  • First being the Soap and Glory 'Thick & Fast' Mascara. I received this in a large bag of Soap and Glory bits for Christmas, and I was pleasantly surprised! I use this mainly as a second mascara, just to thicken the outer lashes, which works really well. 
  • The second product is the L'Oreal 'Color Riche' Pencil Eyeliner. I've been on the hunt for a dark brown eyeliner for tightlining my eyes for quite a while now, and I found this one priced at around £4.50, which is good considering it's SO soft and pigmented! You literally have to line your eyes once with this pencil, with no harsh scraping to get any colour pay off! I wanted a brown eyeliner as I find black to be a little harsh sometimes, especially for school. 
  • The next favourite is an Essie nail polish in 'Bahama Mama', it's a gorgeous deep red/Burgundy colour, which is pretty wintery, so I've been using this as much as I can before the winter ends! Essie nail polishes are priced at around £8.00, which isn't cheap for a nail polish but they apply amazingly and don't streak at all. Also, the brush on Essie nail polishes are so large that you literally need 1-2 swipes!

  • The last product has been a favourite of mine for months actually, but seeing as I've got a brand new pot of it, I thought I'd mention it! This is the Bobbi Brown Corrector in 'Bisque'. If you are unaware of what a corrector does, you apply it underneath your eyes to get rid of any dark circles/brighten the eye area. You are recommended to use the concealer over the top, but it works so well on its own! Also, I can't really afford to use the concealer over the top - priced at £18.00 anyway! The corrector on its own is also £18.00, but has lasted me ages. It's a salmony toned colour, which cancels out blue tones under the eyes, also meaning you only need a tiny amount!

Anyway, thank you so much for reading! What have been your favourite beauty items in January?
