January Favourites


I'm back with another monthly favourites post today. I felt a little all over the place at the end of the year, so I never ended up combining all my yearly favourites and post about them, but you can get a good idea of what products I like if you follow me on Instagram, since I often feature products I keep using on a daily/weekly/monthly basis.

With makeup I've been loving two older favourites - I repurchased the Benefit Roller Lash Mascara, which is a great all-in-one mascara, adding volume, length, definition and curl. You get a similar effect if you use the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara, but the Benefit one tends to last just a little better and adds that tiny bit more volume, definition and length, a combination of which made me repurchase it. 
I also pulled out the Kat Von D Shade and Light palette from the archives my drawer and regret ever putting it away and almost forgetting about it. The powders are super smooth, pigmented and blendable. While they're great cheek products they also work perfectly on the eyes, to set my eyeshadow primer and add some depth and warmth in my crease, when I want to get ready fast in the morning.
Another cheek palette I've been loving is The Balm's Girl's Getaway Trio, which features two lovely blushes and one bronzer. It is perfect if you're fair/light and like understated shades that look great with any look you choose to wear.
Another favourite I can't seem to put away is the Tarte Shape Tape concealer. It covers blemishes and dark under eyes with ease, lasts really well on the skin and doesn't crease. I currently have three different shades and will try to review with more thoughts and swatches soon.
Although I just reviewed the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencils, I was intrigued by the new LE collection 'Wood You Love Me?' Essence just released and got this dual sided eyeliner in the shade 02 My Tree Love. Both shades are lovely; one is a lighter skin toned pink, which works as a great brightener on the waterline and inner corner, while the other one is a medium warm shimmery brown that is smooth and creamy. Considering the price, the lasting power is really nice, especially for the brown part, but I do notice it starting to fade around the 8 hour mark.
I've also been loving some products from The Body Shop. I purchased a hand-care duo with shea butter hand wash and hand lotion. They both smell yummy, feel softening and conditioning for the skin and the lotion sinks in fast, without a greasy layer so I tend to keep it on my desk. I also like that it comes with a pump. 
Another product from the brand that I've been totally in love with this winter is their Wild Argan Oil Body Butter. It has a very nourishing formula (I haven't noticed the skin on my legs get dry and flaky at all since I've been using it) and on top of that it smells delicious, nutty and sweet, making it a joy to use daily. The brand is also finally available in Slovenia and I just might have gone a little over board with stocking up on their body care already.
What are some of the products you've been loving the most lately?

    1. The Balm paletka je super, čeprav bi ti bil bronzer mogoče malce pretopel. Če se ne motim, sem jo zadnjič opazila v Mullerju na Rudniku v Ljubljani, tako da jo imamo zgleda tudi pri nas na voljo :) :)
