January Beauty Favourites

So here we are again, another month has flown by. Where does it go. I’m not bothered that January is over as February is the month of my Birth. Yay! That makes me sound so bias. Ah well. January has been a good month for favourites, I got a few new products for Christmas and so I’ve discovered new things. So here are my most used products of January:
1. Mac Well Dressed Blush: I have wanted this blush for over 2 years, however ever time I go into Mac I always swatch it and think its not pigmented enough to spend €22 on, so I always leave it there. However my mum must be watching me swatching the same blush everytime I go into Brown Thomas and surprised me with it for Christmas. I adore this blush, its the perfect everyday blush. It gives the right amount of colour without being too pink and also gives the cheeks a nice glow. I have a full review on it here and tips on how to apply it so you get the most of the pigment.
2. Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette: I’ve been reading a few peoples thoughts on this palette and  lot of people seem to think its boring. I however love it. I am a huge matte eyeshadow fan, For days when I don't want to look like I've a huge amount of eye makeup on, I tend to reach for matte shades they give the most natural look. I have not stopped using this palette. All the shade go really well with my skin tone and the pigmentation is great as expected from Urban Decay. I have not got a bad word to say about this little beaut. I have a full review on it here along with swatches, if you want to know more about it.
3. Sigma E25 Brush: I ordered a lot of sigma brushes awhile ago from Cloud10Beauty.com and I got to say I'm impressed with them. I have a few favourites but this brush is the one I reach for the most when it comes to eye makeup. Its can be used to pat on colour, blend out a crease or to smoke up a look. Its a great little tool. I will say that when I wash it, it does lose its shape a little so I feel It won’t last super long unlike Mac 217 brush but for under €10 you can’t really go wrong.

4. Revlon Colourstay Nail Polish In Pale Cashmere: What can I say about this nail polish other than I love it. Its the perfect nude, barley there colour. It gives the nails an elegant look and very well manicured. The formula is great. The staying power is excellent. All I know is I need to pick up more from this range.
5.La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo: This stuff has saved my skin big time. It has been helping my breakouts and acne scarring. I apply it as my makeup base, so I feel even with makeup on my skin is being treated and I apply it before I go to bed. Since I’ve started using it my skin looks less congested and more clearer. I still have blemishes but my skin looks more glowing and healthier. I am seriously impressed with this stuff. Full review here.
6. Makeup Store Lipstick In Trip: I have finally found a my lips but better shade, (applause). This lipstick is the perfect shade for me. It is on the nude side but its more peachy toned and when I apply it to my lips it evens out my natural lips shade and adds a nice glossy healthy look. I love this lipstick and its becoming my go to lipstick. Full review and swatches here.
