January Favorites & Empties
Well, here are my favorite products for the month of January. As always I'm just going to very quickly run through them!
First up is Too Faced's eyeshadow in Sexspresso from the Natural Eye palette. I forget where, but I saw someone say it was a great shade to use to fill in the brows for darker hair. A lot of brow products I've tried are usually too red for my hair, but this is almost perfect! This is pretty much the only way I did my brows this month.
Next is Stila's Kajal Eyeliner in Topaz. This month I didn't wear too much makeup, I just kept it pretty minimal and natural so I loved using this in my waterline to make me look more awake and alive. Lovely product is lovely.
theBalm's Hot Mama was my go-to blush this month. If I wasn't sure which blush to wear I just used this one. I love that it's pretty much a blush and highlight in one, as well. I love the healthy glow it gives me!
The Fresh lip balms aren't my favorite lip balm I've tried, but I used this everyday that I wasn't wearing an actual lip color. This is the one in Rose, so it gives a very slight tint of red to the lips. I'm not sure why, but I think I prefer this one to the regular Fresh lip balm.. Rose just doesn't seem as waxy to me and is smoother.
And my last favorite is Victoria's Secret Fragrance Mist in Hello Darling. This was simply just my most worn fragrance this month.
Now for empties. I have four this month!
First we have the St. Ives Green Tea Scrub. This guy lasted soooo long. Every time I thought he would be finished he'd surprise me with more product. When I finished this it was just like, "Finally!!". I did like this, though. It's gentle but not too gentle, and I feel like it did help with any breakouts I had. I would repurchase this, but I have two other scrubs to get through first!
Next is the Clinique Rinse-Off Eye Makeup Solvent, which came in a GWP (gift with purchase). I usually just use my Clean & Clear wipes to take off my makeup and don't bother with eye makeup remover but lately I felt like I needed the extra help! This did it's job and didn't irritate me but I don't think I would repurchase - I have a few other eye makeup removers anyway!
The Sally Hansen Kwik Off is pretty much my holy grail nail polish remover. When it comes to standard remover and a cotton ball or round all I can think is, "Ain't nobody got time for that!!". It just takes so much longer and well, more effort. With this I just dip my finger in for like five seconds and I'm done. If you're lazy and hate doing your nails like me then try this out. I already repurchased.
And last is ORLY's Top 2 Bottom base coat and topcoat. Seriously, I think this is the first nail product I've finished up. I've had it forever! There's still a bit of product left in there but the brush no longer reaches it and it's too much trouble to try and get to it. Anyway, this was nothing special. Seche Vite is my favorite topcoat, but I'm still on the hunt for my favorite base coat.
