Favourites – January 2014

January 2014 Favourties Dupes Are A Girls Best Friend - mi

This is my very first favorites I’ve actually done as I wanted to have a good play around with my style, make up and occasionally my hair before I did. Make up will always be the main part but I’m sure as my skincare improves more will work it’s way in.

Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil £17.50 – This is easy to apply if you don’t have much time. This lasts really well and is easy to re-apply after eating or drinking as it does wear a little. This is a beautiful dark magenta that is very striking.

Mac Matchmaster Foundation 35 ml £27 – Now I loved this when I got it , then went off it over Christmas as my skin got very dry and this doesn’t like dry skin. But I’ve altered my skincare routine and added more moisture to counteract winter and I’m in love again with it. Nice medium coverage with a good shade match that feels light on the skin and makes it silky smooth.See my first impressions review for more details.

Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Colour in Razzberry £19 – This is my “if it was the only lipstick in the world” that I have I would be happy . The texture is creamy but then settles down to a matte finish that doesn’t dry outs your lips. A bold and opaque shade, there’s no hiding in plain sight with this one . Razzberry my red berry love. See my full review here.

Lush Santa’s Lip Scrub –  This has just been a game changer for me, any lipstick that I owned previous to this that hasn’t really sat right with me or my lips I’ve now gone back over and a few have worked so much better. No more dry skin to ruin application or give lipstick a place to hide between any line. More information here.

Mua Bon Bon Blush £1 –  A highly pigmented blusher in a flushed winter pink cheek shade. You really can’t go wrong with this budget brand having so many lovely shades in their blusher range and from just a £1.
