January 2013 Favorites!


Another month has gone by and the new year is in full swing. I pretty much despise January and after getting in a car accident last week, I’m happy to usher out this month! Still, I did have several beauty favorites as usual!

Milani Baked Blush in Bellissimo Bronze– I love Milani’s baked blushes because they remind me of MAC MSFs. I’ve also been wanting MAC’s Sunbasque blush, but I thought this would satisfy my craving at a much lower price, and it does! I’m not saying they are dupes by any means; I just wanted something reminiscent of it.

MAC Stereo Rose MSF– I hesitated purchasing this because I thought it might be too orange for my skin tone, but it is gorgeous. I love layering it over a light pink blush to make it more pink. The sheen is also stunning on this. I definitely need to get my full review up!

Hard Candy Baked Bronzer in Tiki– I used this almost every day this month. See my full review here.


MAC eyeshadow quad– I put these shadows together in an ELF eyeshadow palette for every day use: Soba, Honey Lust, Woodwinked, and Kid.

MAC lipstick in Honeylove– This is definitely love…what a GORGEOUS shade! I just can’t get enough nude lipsticks. This one is matte, but not at all drying.

Maybelline Color Whisper in Lust for Blush– These color whispers are incredible. I love how they feel and how they build up the color. I think these are unique to other products on the lip market too.

Bare Minerals Eyeshadow in Nude Beach– I don’t have too many BM shadows, but I have been using the ones that I own a lot more after doing some stash shopping. They can be worn alone, but I love them over other shades too.

Bobbi Brown Long Wear gel eyeliner in Black Ink– This is the month where I rediscovered this stuff! It stays on forever, even in the waterline. It also doesn’t make my eyes water or bother my contacts.

There are three mascaras I’ve been using this month: Maybelline Define a Lash Volume, Physician’s Formula Organic Wear, and Maybelline Mega Plush mascaras. The PF mascara I don’t like but needed to use it up. I’m happy to report it is done with now. I really liked the effect when it was layered with the Define a Lash! Good thing too, because I still have another tube of it to use. Maybelline Mega Plush is a decent mascara. I love the brush and how the mascara applies, but it is difficult to remove. I also like the flexibility of the brush!
