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

LOLs here too, that line about stopping at makeup counters after happy hour made me laugh! ;D

Re: January Favorites

Yeaaahh, not smart -- why are sales associates SO good sometimes?! I'm normally able to resist the alluring (enabling?) "Here, have a seat..." at makeup counters, but not this time. Fail.

Re: January Favorites

But at least least it was a really nice product!!!!

Re: January Favorites

Haha I can never resist! Whenever I am at a makeup/skincare counter my friends or family have to pull me away reminding me that "I don't need it" and "that's not what we came here for" haha Smiley Happy

Re: January Favorites

LOL! It's like you HAVE to have a designated friend with you there to steer you away and keep you on course!

Re: January Favorites

Shopping with one of my teenage sons keeps me on task - buying only what I went into Sephora for.  Otherwise, I come home with something that I never intended on buying.  However, those purchases are sometimes my surprise favorites!  I will definitely remember to stay away from Sephora after Happy Hour!  lol Smiley Happy

Re: January Favorites

I have been loving:


1.L'Occitane shower oil and body creams.

2.Tarte eye shawdows.

3.Tarte eyeliners

4. YSL cream blushes(never thought I would give in to cream blush but with this I was definitely missing out!)

Re: January Favorites

Tarte eye shadows really surprised me!


When I would walk by their palettes the shades just looked so ho-hum and typical of other colors I've seen, but they wear and look so natural like no effort was needed to create a lovely eye look! I bought one for my mom over Christmas!

Re: January Favorites

I did a bit of traveling this month, I was completely and hopeless obsessed with the following:


Urban Decay Naked Palette: I've had my Naked Palette for way over a year now. It was on a bit of a hiatus for a while but I recently rediscovered why I initially fell inlove with it. Such a good travel palette!


KVD Setting Spray: Another MUST for traveling. It sets your makeup and keeps it looking fresh for hours. It's great.


Laura Mercier primer: This primer feels so nice on the skin. I have a tendency to get a bit dry during the cooler months so this gives my face some extra hydration.

Whimsically yours,

Re: January Favorites

Another favorite of KVD setting spray. Now its a must try/get on my list
