January Favourites

After yesterday's post on my disappointing products I thought today should be all about favourites! Most of these I've been using for a long time or have being enjoying using since Christmas.

Superdrug Vitamin E Super Balm €4.75

 I have been loving this since Christmas and I don't want to give too much away as I have an in depth review coming Tuesday on this. I will say that this has taken over from my Trilogy Balm

Mac Studio Fix Foundation €31.50

I reviewed this recently and have to say this is my holy grail of foundations. MAC is still relatively new to me but so far I've been lucky with the products I have tried. I've literally scraped every last drop out of this bottle and it's now time to stock up again.

Sleek Blush in Antique €5.49

Really sorry that this product is used already in the picture. I shopped my stash recently and came across this (after thinking I lost it). I really love how this warms up my pale skin in this grey weather and with the small bits of glitter (don't worry I don't look like a disco ball) it really livens me up a bit. I then just put a little bit of a pink blush to add some dimension to my cheeks and I'm done. Sleek blushes are highly pigmented, affordable and last nearly all day.

Korres Mandarin Lip Butter Stick SPF 15 (Rose) €11.43

This was my first taste of Korres (see what I did there....never mind haha). I was really delighted that the Rose colour really suited my pale complexion and for a lip butter it had a good colour payoff. My lips are super moisturised and I wouldn't hesitate to pick more of these up in other colours.

Paul & Joe Limited Edition Illuminating Pressed Powder €38.57

To begin I'm sorry for putting something that is limited edition in my favourites but I think this is absolutely amazing. My skin is looking dull in this cold weather and when I found this gem on sale over on ASOS for €24.29 I couldn't resist! The packaging is gorgeous but most importantly the product itself is fabulous. The gold owl, moon and stars is just an overlay so the minute the brush hit the powder it was gone, but the lavender and yellow powder really does lift my complexion. I've being using this everyday for the past few weeks and just can't get enough. It sets my foundation perfectly too. There is glitter in it but even in the natural light it doesn't show up like a disco ball, it comes across very natural.

2048 Plus App

I love a game for the rare time that I get a chance to play, and this one has me totally addicted. You have to move the numbers around the board to make up 2048 or higher! This was free in the play store for Android.

Have you tried any of my favourites yet?

  2. The Paul & Joe thing is SO cute!! Gorgeous! That app would drive me mental, I'm awful at maths, went through a Sudoku phase and nearly killed everyone around me so that's definitely a no-go :D x Have never tried a MAC foundation!
