Monthly Favourites | January 2014

It's that time of the month again, favourites! It's actually scary how quickly the months go, but I love making these posts, keep reading to see what things I've been loving throughout the first year of 2014! Let me know in the comments what you've been loving this month :)

























Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau de Parfum
This perfume smells insanely good, it's so feminine and classy, I love the packaging and I've been wearing this scent since I got it for Christmas!

Sleek Blush by 3 'Sweet Cheeks'
I'm not usually a big blush person, it's something I tend to miss out on a day to day basis, I much prefer just looking nice and bronzed. However I've been really enjoying the middle blush in this palette 'dolly mix' is a light purple/pink and actually looks kind of scary in the pan but it looks gorgeous on and I've been obsessed with it. All of sleek blushes are such good quality and so pigmented.

Natural Collection Eyeshadow 'Crushed Walnut'
I've actually been using this for my eyebrows, it's the perfect shade for me and matches my hair colour really well, I really like the effect this has on my brows considering I was obsessed with the ELF brow kit previously, which I still love but this is just my new favourite brow product.

MAC Paint Pot 'Camel Coat'
Last year I picked this paint pot up and hated it, it looked rubbish when applied and I just wasn't pleased with it however I dug it out of my drawers recently and was convinced it would look good, and it did! I love using this as an eyeshadow base, and the colour is gorgeous.

L'Oreal Lipstick 'Cheryl's Nude'
Oohh this is my favourite nude lipstick ever, I have never found a good nude lipstick because my lips are naturally very pigmented so most nudes are too light, but this is beautiful and the formula is amazing. I want more colours!

Mally Undermakeup Highlighter
I don't know if this product is actually meant to be used as a dark circle hider but its the purpose I've given it, I love the consistency of this product, it's a lot thicker than what I'd normally use so it covers really well and it just blends into the skin effortlessly. Not too keen on the strong smell of it though.

Max Factor 2000 Calorie Curl Mascara
My new holy grail mascara, holds the curl, volumes, lengthens all in one. Love the wand and the formulation and the fact its only £6.99!

Forever 21 Mustache iPhone Case
Haha this is so random, I love this iPhone case, its so cute and I just wanted to include it for you all to see.
