I can’t believe January went by that fast! I feel like it hasn’t sunk in yet that 2015 is over and now the first month of 2016 is also over! How was your January? Good? Crazy? Lots of fun?
Seeing that it is now the last day of January, I’ll be sharing with you my beauty superstars for the month. These are the products which I have been using the entire month and have become obsessed with!
For my base this month, I used the Sephora Smoothing Primer every single day before applying foundation! This primer creates a smooth canvas on the face and it prevents my face from getting too oily during the day. My foundation favorite for the month is definitely the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation! This is such a good foundation if you have really oily skin as it sets matte and stops the face from getting oily throughout the day. I’d say that this has a medium coverage which can be built up to a full coverage. I get a lot of compliments when I use this foundation which is probably the number 1 reason why it’s my favorite! Haha. I have also been loving the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer for under my eyes. This concealer is super creamy and blendable and it definitely brightens the under eye area! To set my under eye concealer, I have been reaching for the Ben Nye Luxury Powder in the shade Banana. This powder prevents my under eye concealer from creasing. To conceal any dark spots on the rest of my face, I have been loving the L’Oreal True Match Concealer! This is such a good concealer! It’s very blendable and long lasting! Having oily skin, I can never skip setting my entire face with powder. For that, I have been using the L’Oreal True Match Powder. This powder is definitely in my top 3 powders from the drugstore! I love how it’s got decent oil-control and it doesn’t cake on me!
In January I got to try some products from the brand Colourpop Cosmetics. You have no idea how excited I was to get my hands on those products! The two standout products for me from this brand are definitely the blushes and the lippie stix! I am in love with the Super Shock Cheek Blush in Cruel Intentions! This is a matte blush that lasts all day long! The color is a deep dusky mauve that is perfect for someone with a darker skin tone. I have also been obsessed with the Colourpop Lippie Stix in the shade Lady. This is a matte deep wine color that is richly pigmented and very long lasting! Can you tell that I have been loving matte in January? Haha.
Continuing with the matte trend, another lip product which I have been using alternately with the Colourpop Lippie Stix in Lady is the Sephora Cream Lip Stain in Marvelous Mauve. This lip product doesn’t budge! It stays on all day but it doesn’t flake off or dry out the lips!
For my brows, I have been using the Malissa Kiss Super Shape Ultra HD Brow Pencil in Choco. This brow pencil is just the right color for my brows. The nib is angled which makes it easier to fill in my brows. This product comes with a spooly as well so it’s great for taking with you on the go or for travelling. The only eye product which I have been using consistently this month is mascara. And for that, I am seriously obsessed with the Catrice Cosmetics Glamour Doll Volume Mascara! I swear, this mascara will give you the fullest, most fluttery lashes ever! It’s a waterproof formula doesn’t clamp your eyelashes, instead, it makes them look long and full! I would say that I have found my holy grail drugstore mascara in this one!
