Hello 2014! Here are my January Favourites!
Clinique Moisture Surge Face Mist
I’ve had samples of this in my cupboard and it has taken a hot humid Sydney summer combined with misbehaving skin for me to break this out and use it….and boy was I nicely surprised. I have used this everyday as a way to hydrate and calm my sensitive skin (I’ve had it all this month – blotchy, red, irritated and acne skin). I like to use it when I get out of the shower and before I put on my under-eye serum and moisturiser or oil. Love love love this product – and I want to try some other face mists as well. I’ve also used it at the office in the afternoon to freshen up my makeup (anything to try and make it last through these hot humid Sydney summer days) and it works fantastically as a makeup setting spray as well!
I never subscribed to this hype. Really – why would you really need to pay $30+ for tweezers. You don’t truly understand why you should spend this until you actually buy a set of these fantastic beauty tools and you use them. And once you have them you will never ever go back to anything else. Great for eyebrow plucking (and dare I say it – other stray facial hairs) as well! Love the hot pink colour on this set as well. Buy a set – it will change your life!
It’s Summer in Sydney. Yuk! Humidity is the killer so no surprise that this is a daily staple. I love this one – I got in free in an event goodie bag and it was fantastic and I will definitely repurchase.
Essie Ballet Slippers
I finally gave into the hype. Especially now the Essie range is so easily available at Priceline. Love this colour – find it works best with a base and top coat but a great polished professional look for work.
Revlon Lip StIN
This is a great colour base for my lips with great lasting power. It’s got a unique smell but it’s rather refreshing. Love this colour!
I’m not really a gloss girl so I very nearly didn’t purchase this when I was in the US last year but so glad that I did. This over the Revlon Lip Stain is my current favourite combination for my lips!
Laura Mercier Foundation
From the packaging, to the texture, to the fragrance to the finish – there is nothing that I don’t like about this liquid foundation. As you know, I’ve been a mineral powder user for many years but this has helped add some coverage for my workday make up routine. I love this product.
L’Oreal Hair Wax
This stuff lasts for ages. I’m only up to my second pot but I am pretty sure I have been using this for at least 5 years! A little goes a very long way. I use it to tame my bangs – it’s a daily must do in Sydney’s humid new year months.
Hard Candy Bronzer
I picked this up in the US when I was drug store shopping. I love this bronzer. It’s totally build able – its a bronzer/highlighter that is just right for the sumer months.
It’s Summer. Which means long hours of reading and relaxing. These were my picks for January!
What did you enjoy in the first month of 2014?
