I want to show you what I have been loving in January. I will try to do this for every month. Sometimes there may be more of what I love sometimes perhaps none.
The pink shadow is by Lancome, p203 rose Perlee. I love Lancome's make up range and 80% of my make up items are from Lancome. The pearly white is from Chanel. If you are looking for a shimmery white then this is what I definately can recommed. I have used it on a few eye make up looks that I have posted pictures of it in Instagram.
Chanel 70 Platine from Ombre essentielle range.
Last shadow is kind of a smokey grey again with shimmer. The particles are so fine that it actually looks very nice.
YSL Touche eclat may be a favorite of many but sadly not for me. It is the lightest in the range. I have to add that I have used better and much cheaper highlighter/concealers. Bourjois is one that I can remember and will be buying it next time I at the make up counter. I like the brush applicator and use it so it runs out rather that waste it. But I don't think I will rebuy it.
Another disappointment is the much hyped (here in UK anyway) Benefit mascara, They're real. So disappointed with it for the price I paid for it. I prefer Lancome Hypnose Doll eyes over it. I will be buying that once this runs out. But to be honest I'm one of those who uses mascara for months more than the recommended 3 month period. I wouldn't even get half way through it.
Lastly my favourite make up item. Lancome's Juicy Tubes. I buy so many of these that even the ladies at the makeup counter now recognise me because of it. I usually buy them from my local Boots store. Mostly I buy Fraise. But the miniature ones came with gift sets which are given when you buy two items or spend an x amount.
These I had to mention. I dont usually wear anything like this. It's a nice collour but I'm not very brave for bright shoes. But this month's Elle magazine had £20 gift card to use in Kurt Geiger. So I went in and tried these on. When the sales assistant told me gift cards couold not be used for sale items, I felt embarressed to walk out without buying these. I had only picked them up to make use of the magazine gift card. I wanted to try something different to what I'd normally wear so brought these home. I'll probably wear them for spring.
There you have it. What has been a hit or a miss for you? Have a good weekend.
