Well hello there! 
I feel like I'm posting this every week because of how fast the time is going! I'm actually going to Paris with my mum on Saturday for a couple of days, which I'm so excited for! As it is the start of the month of course it is favourites time again!

My first favourite of the month is the Makeup Revolution HD Pro Amplified Palette in Mega Matte, I did mention this in my Makeup Revolution Haul a couple of posts ago. I did buy this at the beginning of the month and I absolutely love it, I cannot put it down! The 2 setting powders look sooo smooth on my skin, the light contour shade is perfect in my opinion because it is not too cool and not too warm. I also love the blush shades, I mix the first 2 as the third one is a tad too dark for my skin tone. The palette costs £15 and I think it is completely worth it especially for 8 huge pans! It is a bigger palette so not extremely travel friendly but apart from that I have nothing negative to say about it. You can buy this here.

My next favourite is the Primark Primer Water, I have been using this non stop. I love the simply packaging, it looks very neat. The spray dispenser is really good, not too harsh but does evenly distribute the product. It is silicone free, alcohol free and oil free which is good for my skin type as I tend to stay away from oily products. When spraying this on my face before makeup, it does leave the face slightly tacky which is good as that means the foundation will stick more to my face. I do actually spray this is on my face as a setting spray as well because, it has hydrating properties in it and I don't like having a powdery face. Did I even mention this is £2???? Absolute bargain so definitely pick this up if you are after a new primer spray.

My third favourite of the month is the Bare Minerals Matte Liquid Lipstick in XYZ. I received this in the Send Nudes trio gift set for Christmas. I love the formula of these liquid lipsticks, they are very lightweight and creamy. They have a nice a smell as well, it is quite chocolately which is just delicious. They are a tiny bit drying which is expected for a matte lipstick, but I have tried worse! They aren't extremely drying and they do feel very comfortable on the lips. I really like the packaging of them, it is simple with a black lid and frosted glass. I really like the applicator as well, it is small enough to evenly spread the product across my lips. This colour is my favourite out of the 3, it is a really nice browny nude which you know I love. I don't think you can buy this separately but I will link the Send Nudes trio set you can buy.

My next favourite is the Spectrum Blush Crush A05 brush. I love the Spectrum brushes, number 1 because they are so pretty and number 2 because they are super soft! I need more of them because I only have a few. I actually use this brush for contour, as it is a smaller angled brush and I have a small face I feel like it chizzles out my cheekbones much easier. It is quite precise as well, it does not distribute the product all over it keeps it where you are moving the brush. This brush only costs £6.99 which I think is so good considering the quality of it. You can buy this here.

My last favourite of the month is the Mac Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Double Gleam. It looks a bit more golden in the pan but when you swatch it, it is a true silvery highlight. For paler complexions this is the perfect highlighter shade, it is extremely blinding and pigmented. I don't find that it clings to my texture, it looks very smooth and this highlighter lasts all day. It is quite pricey at £24.50 but trust me it is completely worth it, I love the simply packaging and the Mac pattern imprinted in the product. You can buy this here.

So those were my January favourites.
Thank you so much for reading,
