January 2017 is down in the books and I'm STILL writing 2016 when I cash my checks at the bank. (Anybody else do this well into every new year!?) January was such a great month, but it flew by so so fast. I've been keeping pretty busy over the last few weeks. Semester 2 of my first year of college is full swing and I am swamped with homework. As I type this I'm simultaneously studying for my three tests next week (or at least trying...). I've also been so lucky to spend quite a bit of time with friends and family lately. I even went on a little ice skating date with Mark a couple weeks ago! January was also a great month for beauty! These new releases are giving my wallet so much anxiety. So, expect some haul posts soon! In the mean time here are a few of my go to products from month one of 2017!
Okay so I justttt talked about this baby in my new skin care post over here! And I have become so obsessed with this product since I got it for Christmas. Winter has completely destroyed my skin, I have dry patches constantly and this primer gives such a nice extra layer of hydration. Does it make my makeup last longer? That's the thing everybody asks, and the truth is no. But, it does give a beautiful, hydrated, smooth base for your makeup to lie on top of and these days that's my goal with any primer!
Ughhhh this lipstick. Sephora released a ton of new (and all beautiful) shades to their liquid lipstick range and I am so obsessed with this color. It's made me an official cool tones fan! If you dont already know, the Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stains are among the best liquid lipsticks on the market today and in terms of price, sit well under most other high end lip products at $14 a pop. Per the name, they has a much thicker and moussier consistency than the typical liquid lip. They wear great (5+ hours) and don't dry out my lips unlike much of their competition (Anastsia, Stila, etc.). I can't wait to get my hands on some other new colors!!
Anybody like how my nails are like a dead dupe for the lipcolor?? KL Polish in Zoey!!
I know, I know, it's crazy that I'm just now getting on the champagne pop train!! I'm proud to say I finally added this iconic highlight to my stash over Christmas and I am really impressed. Seriously, all the rave is true! This shade is just the most neutral gold highlight I have ever used in my life. I feel like it can work for such a large variety of skin tones from fair to deep. When I want my highlight to shine to the heavens, I reach for this. (And a tip for my fairrrr skin gals!! If you feel like this pulls slightly dark on you, mix a little of Becca's Opal in. It looks gorgeous!)
X-Formula Delete All 5 Finger Nail Polish Remover
So, I recently found out that Formula X is being discontinued and that breaks my heart because this product is SO good! Over the last month I've used this several times and it never ceases to amaze me. I pop all five of my fingers into the sponge and the polish on my nails is gone within a few seconds. Magic. Unfortunately, it's out of stock online, but I still wanted to post a little something about it in case you can find it somewhere in stores!! I you happen to see this on sale in Sephora, I highly recommend grabbing one while you still can!
What were your favs from January!?
