January favourties


Last month I went absolutely crazy purchasing cosmetics. It was partly because I was traveling and had a lot of spending money and also because panic set in when I realized many of the brands aren't available back in Australia. As I have bought SO MUCH make-up I haven't been able to try all the products yet so I decided to cull it down to a couple I absolutely am loving.

1. M.A.C - 'Brave' lipstick

I am obsessed with this lipstick at the moment. It's a "your lips but better" shade. It has become my go to lipstick because it has such a nice finish and looks really pretty. This lipstick was so hard to track down though which made it a challenge. It was sold out online and every store I went into had it sold out. Although I hate when a product gets sold out..there is a part of me that loves it because it must be amazing to get sold out and it makes it a challenge. After going to many many M.A.C stores I finally found this in Paris. It was definitely worth the hunt because it's just such a flattering shade and this has become one of my handbag staples.

2. M.A.C - 'Perfect topping' mineralize skinfinish

As shown in the picture I haven't exactly gone bonkers using this product yet but..it's just so pretty and I want it to last a long time. What I love about this highlighter is that it is just gorgeous. When I first set my eyes on it I couldn't get over how lovely it looked. I'm totally surprised I didn't purchase it straight away but I wanted to wait until the end of the trip to buy it so it could soften the blow of the 24hour plane trip I was about to endure. What I love about this product is that it can not only be used to highlight but also as an eyeshadow. I can't wait for a dinner or night out so I can give this a good try.

3. W7 - 'In the buff' palette

This is an obvious naked palette dupe but I have read so many great reviews on this that I wanted to give it a go. I bought this online for $7.99 with free shipping which is an amazing price because I think it retails for about $25+. I've only used this a couple of times but i'm in love with it. I'm not one for bright colours so I just adore the selection of neutral colours it offers. It has a great variety of mattes and shimmers. I couldn't recommend this enough and for only $7.99 it wouldn't make sense not to try it!

4. Rimmel Kate Moss - '107' lipstick

I was on the hunt for ages looking for a nice dark red/berry colour. One day this blogger posted a video and I was like "WHAT IS THAT LIPSTICK" and it was none other than a Rimmel one! I'm very happy i've found this as it's the perfect colour for me. I have very dark eyebrows so I can't exactly go too dark with a lipstick otherwise I just look menacing. I wouldn't say it's overly long lasting but it is so easy to re-apply so I don't mind so much.

5. Ted Baker make-up bag

Isn't this the cutest thing or what?! Ted Baker is one of my favourite brands so when I saw this I HAD TO BUY IT. I like the size because it's big enough to fit all the essential items for a full face of make-up so this is my go-to make-up bag now. I just can't get over how cute it is.

I hope you guys liked some of my favourites! Feel free to comment what your go-to product is at the moment because i'd love to hear what they are..and perhaps invest in some ;). x

p.s As I bought SO MANY COSMETICS on my trip I was thinking I could make a video on my beauty haul. It's just an idea because there are far too many products to post. It will be a little nerve racking to film but it would be cool to share my haul.
