So January is over … like how is that possible? I will be trying to do these makeup videos once a month, however I will ask you guys on my social media if you wish to see them before filming the video!! Or else I can do a blog post instead! Anyways, enough rambles and let’s get on with the blog post!
In this month I kind of started using some new things, however I also kept using some old products too that I loved throughout 2017!
#1 – 3INA – The Fixing Spray
I love using this Spray to set my makeup after having applied it! It just sets so nicely and makes my skin look even better! The only thing I don’t like about is that sometimes the pump is faulty and produces more water than a nice spritz! Also, it has a lovely smell to it!
#2 – PS… Primer Water
This is a product from Primark and their makeup. I have seen quite a bit of other youtubers mention this in their primark haul. So when I came back to Scotland after my christmas break I went ahead and bought it. I love spraying this on my face before applying any makeup or even on a no makeup day I still spray it. It hydrates my skin and makes it look glow-y!
#3 – Pixi Skin Treats – Rose Flash Balm Instant Skin Booster
This is such a great product. I would like to thank Pixi Beauty UK for it! It is a 3 in 1 product as you can use it as a moisturiser, mask or primer! I love using it as a primer mostly, it decreases my pores and creates a nice base. When I applied it as a mask I had a lot of redness and my skin felt sticky.
#4 – Makeup Revolution – I Heart Makeup Chocolate Orange Eyeshadow Palette
This is one of the newest releases from Makeup Revolution. I love their palettes, their great quality, some are dupes of other high end brands and they also come in a cheaper price! The colour selection of this palette is great to create a number of looks and I see myself using this in a Valentine’s Day makeup look!
#5 – Colourpop – All I see is Magic Eyeshadow Palette
I thought the palette would be slightly bigger so be aware guys as the size of the palette on the website may fool you! The colour selection in this palette varies and I just love it! The quality of these shadows are amazing and super blendable!
#6 – Max Factor – Healthy Skin Harmony Miracle Foundation – Light Ivory with SPF 20
One of the newest foundations from Max Factor and I just love it! I love using it to create simple everyday makeup looks but even for a night out its great! It lasts long and is really lightweight! It just makes your skin look flawless!
#7 – Collection – Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer
This is such a great concealer to highlight and brighten under your eyes! And for the price it is even more amazing! There is a foundation of Collection alongside this concealer that isn’t my cup of tea but this concealer is just great and it is a favourite of mine from 2017!
#8 – PS….Insta Girl Rice Powder
This is another Primark product and it is just so impressive! I love baking with this, it just sets my concealer so nicely without creasing. It is a loose powder to set makeup and it also helps in absorbing oils.
#9 – Soap and Glory – Archery Eyebrow pencil
I love this brow pencil to fill in my brows! It also helps me fill them in so easily! I just love it and again this came with me from 2017!
#10 – Max Factor – Natural Brow Gel
You have heard me mention this product in a number of videos/blog posts! I just love using this to set my brows! It’s my number one setting brow gel!
#11 – Essence Super Last eyeliner in deep black
This eyeliner creates such a rich and thick black line! It is great for creating that cat wing look and it doesn’t transfer and dries down so fast!!!
#12 – Milani illuminating face powder in Amber Nectar
I love using this to add some colour to my pale face. When I don’t want to bronze or contour my face I love using this to give me a natural pink colour to my skin.
#13 – H&M Bronzing Powder
This is a great natural bronzing powder. I love using it on everyday makeup looks, I just think that it leaves me with a nice bronzed face which isn’t too much!
#14 – Rimmel Wonderfully Real Mascara with Keratin
This mascara is great as it also has Keratin, so it is helping your lashes too! You should be careful of this mascara because it can be a bit too liquidy and can transfer! But it creates nice volume and length.
#15 – L’Oreal Paradise Extatic Mascara
I absolutely love the effect that this mascara gives to your lashes. It enhances them, lengthens and volumises them. It can get a bit clumpy but overall it is a great product!
#16 – Makeup Revolution Liquid Highlighter in Liquid Starlight
This is a buildable highlight, you can create the tiniest of highlights but use more and you’ll have the shiniest highlight beam out there! The liquid highlighters come in a number of colours so be sure to check that collection out!
#17 – NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm
I love the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. Their formula is just the best, very lightweight and not drying. And this shade in Stockholm is just super pretty especially for a natural makeup look!
#18 – Essence Matt Matt Matt Lipstick in shade 03 Wow Effect
I just love this lipstick, both the formula and the colour choice is great. I love wearing this when I am going for a more natural makeup look!
#19 – Golden Rose Long-lasting Liquid Lipstick in shade 18
Best red in the entire collection and one of my favourite reds that I have in my lip collection! I just love the formula of these lip sticks and they have a tonne of shades so be sure to check them out!
#20 – Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte lipstick in Nude
This shade is gorgeous, it’s darker to the Stockholm shade mentioned before. I love the packaging of these lipsticks and they are just amazing! Not too drying or sticky, and last all day!!
#21 – Essence Matt Matt Matt longlasting lipgloss in Shade 11 Drama Club
If you are looking for a gorgeous plum shade then try this out! The formula of these lipsticks can sometimes be a hit or miss depending on the shade. This can be a bit patchy but you can work your way around it!
#22 – Essence soft contouring lip liner in shade 09 going steady
This is a great lip liner, so smooth and it glides on nicely. And the shade is great and mauvey!
#23 – Sand and Sky Purifying Pink Clay Mask
I have done a separate blog post about this so you can check it out by CLICKING HERE. But this mask is great for people who have acne or had too and still have acne scars. It also helps in reducing the appearance of pores!
