January Favorites

 Happy February everyone! Now that January is over all I can think about is that we are one more step closer to spring. Thankfully. The cold and I do not get along. I want to share some of my January favorites. I discovered quite a few new items this month. I also worked in a few of my all time favorites.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream: This is one of the best things I tried this month. My skin absolutely loves it. I have come to the realization that my oily skin is actually dehydrated and really needs to be moisturized and not starved. This is great and has almost a matte finish after putting it on the the skin. It does not make you ultra shinny like a normal moisturizer does.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer - Man that is a long name but this concealer works. It covers up my dark circles and does not crease through out the day. If you are unsure look this concealer up on Youtube and you will find a million reviews. This is my second tube.

Maybelline Dream Wonder foundation: I realized later last year that I was over having a full coverage foundation. I still like coverage but I was hating the way that after a few hours my foundation would look. Also I wanted something a little less matte. This foundation was definitely my answer. While I do need a powder to set the foundation and I hate the bottle design the product is great and this is my second bottle.

Loreal Infalliable Pro- Matte foundation: This might seem like a conundrum to you after reading about the Dream Wonder Foundation. However, even though this says it is a Pro-Matte foundation I would call it more of a satin finish. I decided to try this after I saw the display in my local CVS. I went home and watched a few reviews on Youtube and decided to give it a go. I did end up buying two tubes of this because the first tube was just to dark for me right now. It should be the perfect color for me in the summer though. I love this foundation and it has replaced the Dream Wonder as my everyday foundation. I still love both but for now this one i it. I love the medium coverage. Also I have realized that it actually looks better at the end of the day when I have not set it with my Rimmel Stay matte powder. 

 Simple Micellar Water: I discovered this about halfway through the month and I love it. It is great makeup remover. I can use it all around my eyes with stinging them and it takes the makeup right off.

 Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette: I love these shades. I do wish that there was another medium tone shade instead of three lighter shades, one medium, and two dark. But I use this like crazy. Pretty much everyday this past month I have used at least one shade on my eyes from this palette. The medium shade is my absolute favorite though.

 Two Faced Better Than Sex Mascara: My holy grail mascara. This makes my eyelashes look crazy. I love it so much. I received the full size as a Christmas present and I also have a couple of minis as back ups. I had a mini of this first that I pretty much refused to get rid of because it was wonderful. Eventually I did... darn mascara hygiene rules.

 Anastasia Brow Wiz: After trying so many different drugstore options for my brows I caved and bought the Brow Wiz. So glad I finally did it. This one is actually empty and I have already ordered a new one. I am hooked.
Nest Eau De Parfum Trio (similar): Lastly but certainly not least is the Nest Trio that I received as a Christmas present. I am normally stuck with my 2 perfumes the Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline and the Coco Mademoiselle. This had gotten me to mix it up! I love these. I actually like all three scents. As of right now I can not even choose one out of the three.

I'd love to know what your January Favorites are and what you have planned for February. Please leave me a comment below and let me know.
