January Favorites

So there’s not a lot of favorites this month because I have been going very natural makeup wise this month. I like this look, less prep time in the morning. Haha lazy I know, but the truth 😉 I’ve really only been wearing some sort of foundation for my skin, mascara and eyeliner. I’ve only worn eyeshadow on a few days. Very simple but still flattering.

So this month I used Revlon’s ColorStay foundation, and had all kinds of issues. So it’s definitely not my favorite this month but the other foundation/type of coverup I’ve been using this month is Garnier’s B.B. cream. I actually really like this. I wish there was more coverage to this, but on a whole it’s so easy to apply and does a pretty decent job covering up my acne scars. I will so be using this in the summer too! I still definitely need to use coverup to cover my blemishes up, but I still have to do that with regular foundation. Which leaves me to the concealer I’ve been using all month.

NYX’s concealer in a Jar I have it in Beige which is just a shade too dark, but once blended in well is unnoticeable. I love how its super creamy, and blends so nicely. It’s a great product but the staying power is just not there. So after this is gone I’ll be trying another coverup.

I’ve been favoring my Rimmel’s scandal eyes. It’s such a lovely mascara and a one coater which goes great in my Imrunninglatetoclassgottahurryup makeup this month. I leave for class around 10 and it lasts all day and into night without flaking or smearing. I’ll take it.

Also have been using Rimmel’s exaggerate waterproof eyeliner. I’ve been using this eyeliner for years. I love it, it stays in place and doesn’t move. It’s exactly what I need when it comes to eyeliner. I use this strictly for my waterline. I prefer gel liners if I line the top of my lash line. Which leads me to Maybelline’s eyestudio gel liner.

Maybelline’s eyestudio gel liner.  I love this liner. It stays all day! I can’t rave enough about this. I did a review on it HERE. 

I’ve been using Catrice Defining Dup blush in Pink Grapefruit Shake a mouthful I know. I just mix them both together. I sweep on the dark pink color then top it with the light pink color and I get a nice flush. 

I’ve been in a blush funk lately. Any Blush suggestions I should try out? I like pink blushes. I find the other shades look funny on me. 

Also the Rimmel’s scandal eyes mascara was sent to me by Rimmel as part of an contest I’m in. There’s still time to vote for me everyday.

    I'm going to have to check out the Garnier BB cream one of these days to see how it compares to the Dr. Jart one I have. That blush looks great! I hear you about getting in blush ruts from time to time!

    I love that blush shade! I really like the Garnier BB cream, would love it better if they had a shade lighter than medium.
