January Favourites 2018

One of my favourite posts to write on the blog is monthly favourites! I always find that January is always a easy month to find favourites because of Christmas the month before. Get ready because this post is full of makeup, mainly Urban Decay!

Urban Decay Heavy Metals Metallic Eyeshadow Palette - One word; wow. We got this Urban Decay palette for Christmas last month and I think I've used it everyday since! The shades are just beautiful. From vibrant pinks and reds to unusual greens and golds, this palette has got a wide variety of shades. The pigment is absolutely amazing which you would expect from a high end brand like UD. The staying power is also amazing with lots of shimmer and sparkle. The packaging is beautiful and I always love it when my palettes come with a big mirror! I was surprised that it didn't come with the usual Urban Decay eyeshadow brush that usually comes with the Naked palettes but the amount of shades makes up for the lack of the brush. It's pricey but definitely worth the price in my opinion!
Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Highlighter in Sin - This was another present from Christmas and I was so excited to try it because it's been on my wishlist for ages now! This shade is called Sin which is a beautiful pretty shimmery shade but also quite natural. This highlighter applies so well and lasts for so long on my face. The finish is shimmery and not glittery so it's a nice natural glow. For me, highlighter is essential for my makeup looks so this one will definitely be in my makeup stash for a while! The packaging is amazing with the inside of the lid looking like a fishnet pattern. There's no mirror or brush but this highlighter is so special so don't let that put you off!
The Body Shop Frosted Plum Hand Cream - I'm so upset that this hand cream was limited edition for Christmas. The smell of this hand cream is absolutely delicious and makes my hands so soft! It's not greasy like many hand creams and sinks right into my skin. I'm in love with this product and will have to replace it with another Body Shop hand cream when it runs out!

The Body Shop Vitamin E Lip Balm - I suffer with really dry lips especially in the winter but this lip balm has made my lips soooo soft. It's so moisturising and leaves my lips feeling smooth and hydrated all day. This hasn't got a scent to it either so it's for those gals and boys that hate fruity scents. This is also an SPF of 15 which is amazing and will be perfect to take away on holiday in the summer!
Urban Decay Comfort Matte Vice Lipstick in 1993 - I am OBSESSED with this lipstick. The minute I saw the shade 1993 I just needed to have it in my collection. The colour is a natural nude and a typical 90s shade lipstick. This shade just finishes of any makeup look and it looks so grunge. It looks perfect with or without makeup. The staying power is amazing and it actually stays on my lips all day long! The pigment is also amazing and can be built up if you wanted it to look less natural. I took a swatch of the lipstick on my lips so you guys can see how it looks but honestly you should try this lipstick and see how amazing it is yourself!
Rimmel 60 Seconds Super Shine in Rapid Ruby - You can't beat a red nail polish. I bought this on a whim in boots and I'm so glad I did. The Rimmel 60 seconds range has always been one of my favourite nail polish ranges ever because the colours are so gorgeous and pigmented. Two layers of this polish and my nails are dry so fast which is a bonus!

L'Oreal Infallible Matte Foundation in Vanilla - This is my go to foundation! The colour is a light shade which suits my skin perfectly. It's a full coverage foundation but at the same time my skin can breathe and it doesn't feel cakey at all. It's a matte finish so my skin doesn't get oily as much as it usually does which makes me feel so much better about my skin. I love this foundation and can see myself buying it over and over again.
Catwalk by Tigi Camera Ready Spray - I got this for Christmas and I'm in love. I've always been a fan of Tigi shampoos and conditioners so I was so excited to try this spray. I spritz this on my hair after blow drying and my hair is left feeling super soft, lightweight with an amazing shine. I honestly love this spray and will definitely be buying it again when it runs out!

So, that's our January favourites of 2018! Are these some of your favourite products too?
