January Favourites

Over the last 2-3 months I've been using pretty much the same products all of the time, but there are a few products that have stood out to me this month that warranted a favourites post. I think I'll try and pick 5 favourites each month, to keep things short and sweet.

Lush Snow Fairy
I won this in Jasmine's Surprise Christmas Giveaway and I've been using it almost every day since. It smells so good!! It smells just like the Lush Bubblegum lip scrub, which smells like bubblegum and sweet lollies. It leaves a nice mild scent on you that's only noticeable if you smell your arm. I'll definitely be buying this one next Christmas!

The Body Shop Cranberry Joy Body Butter
This is another product that I've been using almost every day. I love the smell and how hydrating it is. I've got really dry skin so I can get away with using this daily. It's been a while since I've used Body Shop body butters and I've had some horrible experiences with cheap body butters that are really oily, but these are great.

Australis Colour Inject Mineral Lipstick in Lick the Icing
I bought this product because I thought it would be cool to photograph for the photo competition Australis was holding for their birthday celebrations (I think that's what it was for anyway). I thought it was a lovely colour, but was pretty sure I would struggle to use it, especially for just regular everyday make up. But this month I've managed to pull it out quite a few times and I love wearing it. It's something different as I'd usually wear reds or darker pinks as lipstick.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balmstain in Romantic
I've been wearing this at work a lot. I usually don't have time to re-apply my lippy during the day so I need something that's going to last me until my break. It also doesn't transfer easily so I don't end up with red down my face if I accidentally wipe my face or something. The colour took a while to grow on me, at first I thought it was far too dark, but now I love wearing it! As you can see from the picture I've been carrying it around a lot - the writing has almost all come off!

Covergirl LineExact liquid eyeliner
Lately for work I've pretty much just been doing winged eyeliner for my eye makeup. This is the first liquid eyeliner I've managed to use successfully (although my first was super cheap and I never really tried!) and now I love using it, a lot more than pencil liner. I know it's not really a blogger favourite, and there may be better ones out there, but this one has been working great for me.

Lick the Icing, Romatic, LineExact thick and Thin Lines.


  1. I'm so happy you're loving Snow Fairy!!
    Ohh that Body Shop butter looks amazing! I wonder if they still have any floating around after Christmas? Probably not.. lol
    My sister is totally in love with Lick the Icing, I'm pretty sure she has two tubes of it now :P

    1. I'm sure you'd be able to find it on ebay! Plus buying Body Shop stuff off ebay is a lot cheaper. Or you could just get one of the other ones because they all smell amazing (especially the new LE Vineyard Peach!)

  2. I love Snow Fairy & Revlon Balm Stains :)
    the body butter looks nice
