Current Beauty Favourites: January 2013


Hello! A new year brings new favourites! Unlike last year I plan to stop making this as a monthly series but instead posting 'Favourites' posts when I have plenty of products to talk about ( this may occur monthly depending on how many new products I try) as I found last year that I repeated myself. This will also be the case for my empties posts. Hope you don't mind!

Onto the favourites...


Soap and Glory Breakfast Scrub -  I have recently rediscovered this as it has been hiding away at my Grandads house for a few months. I forgot how amazing this smells. This has banana,almond and honey extracts and has a syrup-like maple fragrance. This scrubs your skin without being abrasive or irritating and is generally a great body exfoliator which leaves your arms and legs soft and smooth.

RT Expert Face Brush - This brush is amazing and has replaced my RT Stippling brush for applying my foundation. It is dense and allows you to really buff foundations into your skin. Like other RT Brushes this doesn't shed, washes easily and is really soft.

RT Deluxe Crease Brush - This is intended as an eye shadow brush but I prefer this for my concealer, namely my MAC Studio finish, this really buffs concealers into your skin so it doesn't look cakey and is the perfect size for around your nose and under your eyes.

MAC Prolongwear Concealer - This has been my concealer of choice lately and this does the job great. I use this on my blmeishes and under my eyes. I'll be honest, this doesn't cover everything as I'd hope but it still works well and doesn't crease or look cakey.

MAC Soft and Gentle MSF - You may have read my thoughts in my MAC review post on this product  but for those that haven't I have been reaching for this product for my eyeshadow rather than my cheeks nd have loved it. As an eyeshadow it doesn't crease, is pigmented and lasts all day. I have also been reaching for this, less frequently though, on my cheeks alongside my Narz Zen Blush and the finish is very glowy and flattering.

La Roche Posay Soothing Repairing Balm - I won't ramble about this product because I have an in depth review to come however I have been reaching for this as my daily moisturiser and when my skin has been chapped and this works great.


I won't ramble about these products as I do most months however I have left links to the reviews for those that are interested.
