January Favourites

Monday, 1 February 2016
Another month has gone by, which means another favourites post!

Make Up
NYX Powder Blush in Peach -
 I am quite certain that I used this blush nearly every day in January. It is such a perfect natural pinky peach shade, and if you're pale like me, it looks great.  I also love that whilst it's mostly matte, it does have a very slight shimmer to it. 

Benefit High Beam and Hoola - 
I rediscovered my love for Hoola in January and I have been using it to contour, and for me it's pretty much the perfect shade. 
Another favourite in January has been High Beam. I've mentioned before that this is one of my favourite highlighters, and it never fails to impress! 

So if you follow me on Instagram (charwbeauty), you will have seen that I have been loving dark lips recently. I also had to include the No 7 nail polish as well in Temptress because it's literally the perfect winter colour and it looks so good on! 
The two NYX lip creams are in the shades Transylvania and Copenhagen

These two Make Up Geek palettes have literally been my go to eyeshadows ever since I got them. I've got a full blogpost on them if you're interested in what shades I own and swatches of them.
I have also been obsessed with these two Morphe brushes and I use them every day when I do my make up. They are so soft and blend out the eyeshadow so well, I honestly own nothing like them! On the left is the B70 brush and on the right is the M139 brush.  

Hand Cream
It finally started to turn cold properly in January, so of course my hands started to dry up. My two favourite hand creams that have managed to save my hands and keep them lovely and soft, are the Fat Face Hand Lotion and the Soap and Glory Hand Food.

So January has been the official month where I rekindled my love for Green Day (and their side band Foxboro Hot Tubs). Oh and I found my Ipod Classic that is still going strong! So yeah, I've been a Green Day fan for nearly 12 years, but now that I'm older and have been through a load of crap in the past year, I can really relate to their songs. Obviously I was able to before, but now I feel so much more connected to them. 


My two favourite blogs this month (and that are always my favourites) could not be more different. I always find myself reading these two blogs whenever there's a new post, regardless of what it's about! 

Catherine's blog is so beautiful and she takes the prettiest photos. I absolutely adore how girly and pink her page is! 

Luanna's blog is just incredible. I love her originality and how she is so different to everyone else. Her creativity is such an inspiration!

  1. I've always wanted to try Benefit's Hoola, but haven't got around to it. I love the NYX soft matte creams, such a great, affordable lip product!
