I got some good stuff for you this month! I just really fell in love with some of these products. It’s not very often you find that product you just have a hard time putting down if you are like me with a huge collection and a love for changing up the products. But, this month I found so many really amazing things and I can’t wait to share them with you guys!
I also found my first Colourpop eyeshadow palette that was a complete miss for me, so stay tuned if you want to know the tea.
But first, let me tell you about everything I fancy right now!
Maybelline Master Chrome Highlighter – Molten Rose Gold: Ok, this one you all know about. Most people really love it. I have also the original shade in “Molten Gold” but this one just looks a tiny bit more flattering on my winter skin-tone. This is such a georgeous metallic highlighter that gives you that beaming glow without the shimmer and glitter. It is just highlighter perfection, and even though I did play around with some other highlighters in January, I almost missed this one the days I chose something else. Strange thing that you can miss a highlighter when you are already wearing another highlighter on your face. Must be true highlighter love (and you would have to be a crazy makeup-junkie for this to even make sense).
Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Foundation: I mentioned this before, because this is my holy grail of foundations. So it’s not a new favorite, but I have been using it a lot last month and my fascination of how pretty and natural it makes my skin got revived. I loved it ever since I picked it up summer 2017, but I tend to save it for special occasions because being Guerlain it’s not exactly wallet friendly.
KissMe Liquid Lipstick – Madrid: This was a part of the KissMe liquid lipstick subscription December bundle, and it is a gorgeous true mauve. A matte mauve lipstick that lasts for hours and feels comfy is just the thing I like to wear. Perfect as a darker nude.
Jeffree Star Androgyny Palette: I have been playing a lot with this palette, and created a post filled with eyeshadow looks as well as a review post of the palette that will be coming soon. I was really impressed by the quality of the eyeshadows while playing around with it, and I think the overall quality of this palette is better than the previous Beauty Killer palette. It’s like Jeffree listened to the concerns people had with his first palette and used that information to improve the next. A good move because this palette is awesome and so much fun to use!
MAC Lipstick – Patisserie: I love MAC lipsticks and I have been for years, nothing new there. But I really dug into this lipstick in January and from being used just a few days before it is actually 1/3 down! It is lustre finish so they don’t stay on your lips too long so you would off course use up a lipstick with this finish much faster than say a matte, but still, god a ton of use out of this!
LUSH Big Shampoo: This is so refreshing, and a prefect pick me up in the morning. The best is the nice airy volume my hair gets. It simply just gets bigger. I finished a tub of this, but I already have a backup. I’ve finished several more tubs before, but I just picked up on using this in January and got a good reminder that I can actually have big hair too!
MakeupGeek Plush Matte – Marriage Material: This is the most matte yet the most light-weight liquid lipstick you can imagine. It feels like wearing nothing on your lips! The shade is such a gorgeous mid-toned rosy shade and it is actually not that far away from my natural lip-color which is probably why I find this to be a good everyday shade for me. I like the formula so much I had to pick up another shade.
Chanel Correcteur Perfection Concealer – 10: This haven’t just become a favorite of January, this is right now my favorite concealer of them all! It is better than my Maybelline Age-Rewind., Better than my Catrice Camoflage, better than my Guerlain Multi-Perfecting Concealer, better than my Maybelline Fit Me, it is even better than……behold…..my Tarte Shape Tape. Yes, it is that great! It does everything I want. Good coverage, no creasing, no dryness, blends like a dream, looks like incredible skin, and lasts for a long time. Packaging is also nice, simplistic and luxurious. This is amazing stuff and I am puzzled why I never hear anything about it.
KissMe Liquid Lipstick – Venice: Yep, it’s another liquid lipstick from the December bundle. This one is little lighter and a bit more peachy than Madrid, but still a mauve shade. Perfect for everyday wear!
Juvia’s Place The Magic Palette: I already had the Zulu palette by the brand, and since that was a good experience I wanted to try more. Little did I know that this palette would be as big of a hit as this. It truly deserved its name because the shades are nothing short of magic and unique. I created so many looks with this palette, and still my creativity just kept coming. I had to force myself to put it down in the end. After all I have more palettes to review and need to use them as well in order to get an impression of them, but damn it was hard. This palette is nothing short of stunning and every shade is excellent. I am L-O-V-I-N-G it.
I am sorry if I seem so excited, but not once since I started this blog have I been this excited about this many products at the same time!
Lets tone it down a bit and talk about something that did not work.
THE MISS – Colourpop Golden State Of Mind Palette: You all know I love Colourpop and their eyeshadow palettes. Every single one of those I’ve tried have been palettes I really enjoyed the quality of. Surely, a few shades here and there could have been better, but the overall standard have been very good. Colourpop also know how to make some excellent metallics smooth as butter and richly pigmented like those you find in the “I Think I Love You” palette. So what happened here? This palette is just a bunch of chunky glitter that ends up on your cheeks throughout the day, and the metallic shades are not nearly as impressive as the ones we are used to. Since they upped the price-tag quite considerably for this tag, and it was a part of their Sephora launch I did expect it to at least be on par with their usual standard but it’s just not. Off course you can make it work with setting spray and a good base, but that is not necessary with most of their other shades, so why fill a palette with shades like that. So disappointed!
That’s it for January hits & misses. Thanks for taking your time to read it, I hope you enjoyed it and please leave a comment if we have a favorite in common!
