January Favourites feat Rimmel, Origins, MAC, Too Faced, Amazing Cosmetics and Maybelline

It's that time again when I share my favourite products with you beauties and this month is a good one.  It includes some re-discoveries, new products and some old time favourites and is a post I have been looking forward to writing for a while as I missed out on my yearly round up of favourites as I wasn't well enough to write it (boooo). Anyway, hopefully I will make up for it this month! Here we go....


January Favourites feat Rimmel, Origins, MAC, Too Faced, Amazing Cosmetics and Maybelline

I re-discovered my Wake Me Up foundation at the beginning of January as I fancied a change. I didn't realise I had only been using either my Nars Sheer Glow or Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua for the past year so it was about time I switched things up and tried something different.

After being unwell my skin had become a little dry and was looking dull as I hadn't been using any of my trusty beauty products for weeks so it really needed a boost. The first product that came to mind was Rimmel Wake Me Up. This product is known for giving the skin an illuminating glow and without doubt it does that. My skin looks more hydrated and healthy when it is applied. The formula is smooth and creamy too so it glides beautifully over my skin and blends in well, giving medium-full coverage whilst still feeling light.  I just wish at times it wasn't quite so orange toned.

I forgot how nice this foundation was!

Another product I re-discovered during January was my Maybelline Color Tattoo in On and On Bronze. This cream eyeshadow is brilliant and I actually prefer it to some of the higher end products available. It blends beautifully over my eye lids and blends out well as it doesn't dry too quickly but when it does it stays in place all day without creasing or fading.

One and On bronze is also a beautifully easy to wear shade for both day and evening looks. It has a pretty shimmer running through it which lightens it up and leans more towards a grey/taupe than bronze which I actually prefer.

One of my all time favourite lipsticks is Rebel by MAC, a rich berry tone which can be worn both during the day and evening. I particularly like wearing it with a neutral smokey eye with black liner as it really makes my lips stand out.

If I'm honest the formulation of MAC lipsticks aren't my favourite on the market as I can find them a little drying at times but Rebel is one of the better ones. It applies smoothly, is very pigmented and is pretty comfortable to wear and long lasting

As mentioned above my skin has been suffering from neglect a little lately but one of my saviours has been the Origins Drink It Up Face Mask. Whenever my skin needs a boost I use this product a few times a week and after just a couple of applications I can see a difference.

Despite the name suggesting this is a face mask it more like an overnight moisturiser. Unlike other face masks you don't have to clean it off, instead you leave it to soak into your skin while you sleep. In the morning your skin is left feeling soft, smooth, hydrated and glowing.

Without doubt this is the best mascara I have ever used. The colour is very black so it makes my lashes stand out, it gives them volume and length by separating each individual lash without making them look spidery and it doesn't smudge. I love this mascara so much I will be wearing it to my wedding!

When I first used this concealer I was a little sceptical about how good it could be for the price, afterall £19.50 is very pricey for a tiny 6ml product that I'd use daily. I'm glad to say I was pleasantly suprised, though. I have used the Amazing Cosmetics concealer for several months now and I love it, in fact it has now become my 'go to' concealer.

This concealer is brilliant on blemishes and covers them up in an instant due to to it's highly pigmented formula which is also very long lasting. It is very thick which means only a tiny amount is needed (less than any other product I have used) but it blends extremely well thanks to the creamy, smooth formula. I also use this concealer under my eyes to cover dark circles which again it is very good at but a little on the heavy side.

  4. Lovely picks... I have the same Color Tattoo shade, (in fact I'm wearing it right now!) I love it. I've heard lots of great things about the Too Faced mascara, it seems it's a blogger fave; although I've yet to try it out. xxx
