Favourites || January



Back at home in Cyprus over the holiday, I slept in my sister’s bedroom and I kept sniffing a tiny bottle of YSL’s Black Opium she had on her desk. It’s such a sexy, grown up fragrance that I can’t get enough of, and it’s different than anything I own. It also reminds me of her, so that’s a great bonus.

Old favourites include Maybelline’s Fit Me Concealer in No.35(thank you Superdrug for those vile security stickers on everything that don't come off!), and my Bobbi Brown Corrector in Dark Peach. I’ve been using the Corrector to help hide some dark pigmentation, and I forgot how beautiful and creamy the Fit Me Concealer is. It’s a good one for highlighting!

I mentioned in my Brow Kit post that I needed to switch brow pencils, so I finally tried the Anastasia Brow Wiz! I’m super late to the party, but I’m completely sold! It’s not too waxy or too hard, and I could even skip powder because it just looks completely perfect on its own! I get the hype, I really get it!

I lost a nail this month, and it was a horrible break that’s going to take a while to fix. Until my nails get back to the length I prefer, I’ll be using my Revlon ColourStay Gel Envy nail polish in shade 535 called Perfect Pair.

My favourite of the lot are the First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads. I have never seen my skin glow like this before! My skin is ridiculously dewy and completely even in texture. I was really frustrated with how patchy my skin was looking but that hasn’t been a problem since I started using these pads. They’re soaked in lactic and glycolic acids, liquorice root and lemon peel, which sounds all kind of wonderful!

I bought the smaller container because I wasn’t sure how long they’d last before drying out, but a month in, and they’re still going strong!

    1. I'm not going to convince you otherwise! It's the kind of fragrance you just keep smelling on your own wrists all day.
