January Favorites

Its 2013 and I kinda want start doing monthly favorites on here. See what you all like and what works for you and what didn't


I've been loving:

Givenchy Mister Mat. I have oily skin especially my t-zone and cheek area. I like to just apply this over these area because I don't have the time for touch up or blot most of th time. This really does help with oil control and creating that smooth canvas. I've been reaching for this lately than my Porefessionl

Illamaqua Blush in Lover. I was recommend this blush from one of the mods here, pretty sure it was Diana. Boy do I like this color and pigmentation. This is a  matte blush which I prefer. The lasting color of this is amazing and little goes a long way with this blush. I apply this with either a stippling brush or a blush brush. Its a nice settle everyday pinky coral.

Stila Stay All Day Mascara. I never heard much from Stila's mascara. I got this as part of a value deal I got from buying the eyeliner(which I love). So I was kinda hesitant with using it. This is a waterproof macara. It stays on all day with no flaking. I love how it holds my curl and how it really makes my lashes look natural but fuller. 

Maybelline Dream Matte Powder. I love using this is set my foundation and conceal. Although I only use this on my oily areas. I used to used my Mac Mineralize SkinFinish Natural to set my makeup but I keep going back to this. This is a really nice setting powder for those who have oily skin and this doesn't cut a big hole in my wallet.

Korres Milk Protein Cleanser. I've been using this for about a week but I'm in love! I have a bit of roseca on my cheeks and this does not irrate my skin at all. Leaves my skin feeling smooth and clean. You only need a little bit of this to get it foamy. A really nice gentle everyday cleanser. 


Whats yours?

Re: January Favorites

doesthe setting spray set your makeup with a less matt finish than a powder does?  Does it set it as well?  My face seems to look too dry ..want that more dewy look

Re: January Favorites

It provides a matte coverage to a certain degree but not as much as the powder would.Hope this helps!

January FAVE:




Best thing ever. I gravitate towards the lighter neutral shades, and those are pretty hard to find in palettes. So far I've only worked with 4 of the colors but they are godsend for pale skin. I dont own the naked or naked 2 palette (yet) but I'm really enjoying my little *taste* of the naked collection right now Smiley Very Happy And I LOVE the packaging, I wish that the naked and naked 2 palettes were in this exact packaging---its super sturdy, snaps shut securely, has a big mirror, so portable and the case doesnt get dirty!


Re: January Favorites

I love my Naked Palettes. They are amazing. Great for traveling and creating different looks. Love them. Can't wait to see more from them.

Re: January Favorites

Absolutely, and I am *such* a big fan of slim packaging, there's just no reason for bulky palettes. I dont have the space for them and company's just make big and bulky cases to try and justify the big pricetag. The naked basics palette has 6 full sized shadows, the pans are the exact same size as the pans in the naked and naked 2 palette and yet...its very tiny compared to naked and naked 2 so I can put it in my organizer without it taking up too much space and I can toss it into my purse for travel. The new bright palette by MUFE is also around the same size as the naked basics but it contains more shadows, and costs way more but I'm OOGLING it now! So pretty! But there's shades in there that I just would not use like black and yellow.

Re: January Favorites

I'm a sucker for packaging LOL. I love cute packaging but I still like the slick and modern ones as well. I love how UD came out with Flush. You get bronzer, highligher and blush! Color wise I'm not that excited about the blush but its great for traveling. I haven't seen the new MUFE pallette yet in person but I did look it up and boy do I love that blue color shadow and that lilac one is gorgeous too. I need to stop myself but I end up getting another pallette

Re: January Favorites

I saw the MUFE one in person and its pretty cool. Half the colors are brights, half are neutrals. I like the size (tiny) and I'm really getting into this brand. Because of the price, I thought that it would be about the size of the KVD palettes but its WAAYYY smaller, like the naked basics. I put myself on project 10 pan though (have to use up 10 beauty products before I buy anything, unless I run out of something completely). Plus I have at least a handful of brand new items in my makeup box that I havent even tried yet.

Re: January Favorites

Same here girl. I seriously need to start using up my products before buying more. I don't think thats going to happen. My shopping list is getting bigger and bigger. LOL 

Re: January Favorites

Same here. Yesterday I bought an extra set of 3 drawers to plug into my 5 unit makeup drawer because things were getting pretty cluttered. Now its all good lol. Every drawer has breathing room now. I have to have everything in *one* spot, I am not the type that can have makeup all over the place, it would take me ages to get ready that way. I dont know how other people do it. They have some of their makeup in bathroom drawers/cabinets, in boxes around the house, in their bedrooms etc. I have to know what I have, how much of it, and where it is. I really love my makeup drawer set though! So awesome Smiley Very Happy

Re: January Favorites

What type of makeup drawer organizer do you have?  Does it fit on a countertop or do you place them inside drawers?  I need help organizing my makeup as it's starting to accumulate.  I know I need to go through and get rid some old stuff that I don't use anymore, but I would like to find a more conventient way to store all my faves.
