January Favorites

Hello beauty babes. This is my January favs. Now some I have been loving forever and probably talked about them before. But when you in love, you keep bringing it up right?? Some products I just rock with on a regular bases. Even when I try something new, I still go back to the products that don’t let ya girl down.

Primer: Lancôme La Base Pro Hydraglow. Normally I am combo/oily skin type category. But this winter I have been more normal skin type. This has given me to opportunity to use more hydrating products without looking like a grease trap. So it’s really fun switching form a matte face to a more glow. I have been loving this primer, especially under my Fenty Beauty foundation. It really hydrates the skin and preps it for foundation.

Foundation: Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear foundation. This foundation says soft matte but it Is a really matte formula. It is also a very thin formula which makes it great to build on the skin without looking cakey. I wouldn’t recommend this foundation to someone who is dry and flakey. If you are normal to dry, then I would suggest really prepping the skin with a good moisturizer and hydrating primer so that you won’t look or feel like a desert.  And also of course I can’t mention this foundation without talking about how amazing the color range it. 40 shades!!!! That is a ground braking beauty exclusivity that I am happy to witness.

BB, CC, Tinted moisturizers/cream: Pur cosmetics Air Perfection CC cushion. I love this Cushion. They call it a CC Cushion foundation, but I like to consider it a CC cream in a cushion. It isn’t a full coverage. It has a beautiful dewy finish which my skin has been loving. Now the shade range is not good at all, but since it is a more sheer product and is a CC formula, it seems to really blend into the skin well. You can use it under, over, or as a foundation. Very versatile since the shade range is crap.

Concealer: Wet N Wild Photo Focus concealer. Now at first I wasn’t a fan of this concealer, but the more I use it, the more I really enjoy it. I like it to conceal my under eye and any pigmentation before foundation and highlighting. The coverage is good and it blends out like a dream.

Powder: Lancôme transleucence powder. This powder is great because it’s not heavy. I gives the skin a nice natural look. I love it on top of the Pur CC Cushion foundation because it keeps the glow that the cushion gives without the foundation moving or looking to oily.

Bronzer: Makeup Revolution Ultra Bronze. From the first time I used it, I was in love. This bronzer is so smooth and just beautiful on the skin. buildable and not orange at all. Just a very beautiful product.

Blush: Coastal scents blush pot in Glowing Ember. This blush is absolutely beautiful. The shade is a cool mauve shade. The color gives a great flush of color. The blush is matte but gives the skin a very healthy finish.

Highlighter: Makeup Revolution Pro Illuminate. Like the bronzer, this highlighter is love at first swipe. Amazing glow. You can apply this for a soft glow from within or you can blind astronauts on the space station. Huge pan of product and an amazing price. soft buttery powder.

Mascara: Loreal Lash Paradise mascara. Now ya’ll know my holy grail mascara is the Jordana Best Lash Extreme. I normally don’t try new mascaras unless they are samples. Now there are some that I love but the price stops me from repurchasing. I mean the life of a mascara is only 3 months, so most prices don’t justify the life of the product. This mascara is suppose to be a dupe for the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara. I don’t think it is but it is very similar. I like that it keeps my lashes soft, which I like for more natural looks.

Well folks those are my January favorites. What are some of your favorites of the month? Thank you for coming by. Please like, comment, and subscribe.

Smooches,

Kim B
