| January Favorites |


Oh wow, I just realized, I don't think I ever did a monthly favorites for December so sorry for that, also sorry for starting this post off like that too...
Anyway it's a new month and a new year, wild! I'm sure you've seen the memes and the tweets all about how January is never ending, but for real, January is probably my least favorite month and it has been painfully long. However, a new monthly favorites post means it's the end of the month! 

All jokes aside though, January hasn't been all that bad to me. I just hate the winter, plus I really want February because it's my birthday month! 

Enough rambling, here are my January Favorites! 

January Favorites




Favorite face product: Milani Strobelight Instant Glow Powder in Daylight

I am probably the pickiest person when it comes to highlights. I prefer them to look one specific way, and to be quite honest, I'm not one to try out new or crazy shades, just give me that natural glowy look please! 

When I found this one from Milani, I instantly fell in love with the packaging. Hellooo pretty gold! The shade inside is equally beautiful though. This shade, Daylight, is the natural color I love when it comes to highlights. The quality is amazing too. It swatches beautifully and it really shows up when you apply it to your face.

Favorite eye product: L'Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara

Okay, so I'm actually not late to the party with this one, let me explain. I bought this when it first came out, ya know, when everyone was hyping the fuck out of it, and I loved it. I had to move though and somehow lost it and never thought to repurchase it because I had other, opened mascaras. Fast forward to just this past month, and I decided to buy it again because I had a coupon and it was on sale, (and in case you didn't know, ya girl can't pass up a bargain). 

Anyway, this mascara definitely lives up to all the hype surrounding it. It's by far the best mascara you can buy at the drugstore and it leaves your lashes looking long and full, the exact same way they would look if you used it's very similar looking, high end counter part. 

Favorite lip product: LA Colors Lip Balm

Not gonna lie, this was an impulse buy, based solely on the packaging and can ya really blame a girl? Look how cute that fox is! Lucky for me though, this little lip balm smells amazing and makes my lips feel soft. 

Kopari Coconut Sheer Oil

Something I am late on: coconut oil. I've heard everything about it. How it does wonders for your hair, your skin, pretty much your whole damn body, this shit is like a little miracle worker. I just recently started using this coconut oil on my hair, especially on my dead ends and it's amazing, oooohmyyygooood. Just a drop and my hair looks amazing, like just walked out of the salon with a fresh blowout amazing. 




Something else I've been loving...

Beanies! This winter has been so cold and I really hate the cold. I bought a few new beanies and I'm not even kidding when I say I've been wearing one every single day. They're a great little addition to otherwise boring and bland winter outfits, they're great for hiding bad hair days, and they keep your head warm, which in turn keeps your whole damn self warm. YAY!

Songs that I've been playing on repeat this month:

I recently saw Anastasia on Broadway - amazing show btw - so I've been pretty much been playing the movie soundtrack non stop this month! 



That's it for my January favorites! What were some of the products you loved this month?

  3. Love your reviews!! Always to the point. That Milani highlighter looks gorgeous. This month I’ve been enjoying the chocolate bar palette, some brushes I’ve had, and NYX butter glosses. I need to get my act together and do my Jan favorites before March rolls around �� x Jen beautylifemom.com
