Favourites for January ft. Chanel, Haus of Gloi + more

twice is nice haus of gloi
 
An edit of the products I loved the most in January would be incomplete without the mention of my beloved Dermalogica Precleanse*. I feel as though my skin is happier now that I’m using this before my cleanser, so it is a definite favourite for me right now.

 
The Endota Spa Lavender & Alpine Pepper hand cream* is the best hand cream I’ve tried, and I’ve been loving popping this on as I watch YouTube videos at night time. I’ve been meticulous with moisturising my bod as well this year, and my Haus of Gloi pumpkin butter in Twice is Nice smells like amazing almond sugar cookies, and is thick and intense for my skin.

Despite it being summer in Australia and peach blushes being spruiked, my obsession with bright pink cheeks still reigns! Chanel Pink Explosion is naturally still in my everyday makeup bag, joined by the affordable Fierce Fuschia from BYS.
 
 
The YSL Touche Eclat* was something I didn’t think I would love as much as I do, but it really does work magic on brightening up my face, and I’ve found that throwing a bit on blemishes (not straight from the brush, don’t worry!) works wonders if I’m in a pinch. Barry M’s Toffee gloss is something I bought after seeing Ingrid (aka Miss Glamorazzi on YT) rave about it, and she was right! Smells amazing and is a great wearable nude, made better by the cheap price tag on ASOS.
Even though I tried to branch out with my eyeshadow choices during the first month of the year, all I could manage when I wasn’t doing a look soley for the blog featured these shades. L’Oreal's Infallible’s are one of my very favourite shadow formulations, and Metallic Lilac is fast becoming my colour of choice from the stack that I have. Paired with MAC’s Moth Brown=heaven!  Maybelline’s Colour Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze finally got some loving on my lids, after I realised that I needed it smudged along the lower lashline for it to work on me.
What products did you love hardest in January? Anything new I need to check out?

  2. I love the sound of the Haus of Gloi Pumpkin butter! I wasn't impressed the the Touche Eclat when I first got it but I've grown to really like popping a bit over my under eye concealer (I have very bad dark circles...) and it really helps. Fab post :)

    1. @Claire it is a really lovely scent. I don't have particularly bad dark circles, but the difference when I use this is still impressive. Glad to hear you are liking it,too.

  3. I really need to get onto the L'oreal infallible eyeshadow train. I have a couple of the dark blackened colours that I like to use as eyeliner but haven't delved into any all-over-the-lid shades.

    Another missglamorazzi recommendation that is fantastic is the NYX lipgloss in beige... or just the NYX lipglosses in general!

    1. @Sophie I don't think I have ever used an Infallible as a liner, I do have some of the dark shades though so should try it out. I suggest Sahara Treasure or any of the light neutrals to try all over the lid, and I recently bought Amber Rush from ebay which is a stunner. Tender Caramel from the new collection is amaaazing on. I will have to try those glosses, I've seen Ingrid wear them quite a bit!

  4. I don't think I used the same thing often enough in January (due to the project, haha). But! I'm really starting to love the L'oreal Infallibles a lot, too. They are so lovely!

    1. @Larie sometimes it is better to try a whole stack of things from your stash rather than sticking to favourites. I tend to find that if I do that, I end up finding favourites to include down the line anyway ;P I am a huge Infallible fan!

  5. I've been loving all of my lipsticks lately because of the lippyaday challenge so it's impossible to pick a favourite there. One thing I've been loving the hardest is my old faithful Essence Cappucino, Please! eyeshadow because it just goes with everything!

    1. @Vita I know, I have been switching up my lipsticks every day (even if I don't photograph them) so Norlin's challenge has done me well. I will admit, I am almost out of UD Virgin and then I will whip out Cappucinno, Please! to use. I really want to try depotting them, but I'm nervous...

  6. Gah, I'm starting to think that I was insane to ignore Moth Brown. And is it just me or is that Chanel blush actually flattened and level now due to usage? :D

    1. @Liz Moth Brown is pretty awesome, I'm sorry to say. To be honest, I have been using my Chanel quite a bit! But I'm worried about the crack that has appeared in it, not sure if that is normal or if it will be a problem later on down the track. Has that ever happened to you?

    1. @Mel I was sad that I don't get to use Olde Cider Haus anymore, but the way I see it the faster I use and enjoy this lot, the sooner I can haul and try more scents!!

  8. What gorgeous choices. I really do wish I had ordered more bubbling scrubs from Haus of Gloi. You have encouraged me to get my PreCleanse Gel and the BYS blush out asap!

  9. I'm a BIG precleanse fan too!! It's so lovely to use and gets absolutely every scrap of makeup off. Also feels and smells amazing I think xo
