January Favourites

Now my previous post was my big box of empties I had collected over January and I thought why not do a favourites post to go with it? So here it is. I had a few as I have tried so many new products over the last few months but I have cut it right down to five so this isn't a massive post. I have also tried to include a bit of everything so we have perfume, skin care, hair care and a little bit of make up too!

January Empties

I've always loved empty posts because I feel like a product must really be worth it, for someone to finish it. You're either going to discover a product you absolutely love or one you would never repurchase again. So here is my very first empties post, take a peek at what I've used up recently.

The Ultimate Body Butter by Soap & Glory

I am a massive fan of Soap & Glory, there is rarely a product I dislike and The Righteous Butter is no different. This was in The Yule Monty gift set that I received for Christmas and it's available from Boots for £10.50 per 300ml, which is what I have. There is usually a 3 for 2 offer in Boots so you can really treat yourself with some body loving products.

My Second MAC Pro Palette Quad

So after I finished my first little quad which was all neutral shades which you can see in My First MAC Pro Palette Quad post, I decided that I had to complete another. I had some birthday cash so I got myself another empty quad from my local MAC and filled it up that same day.

Illamasqua Blush in Lover

I made my very first Illamasqua order last week by picking up a few bits in their sale and one of those items was this powder blush in the shade, Lover. Their sales are renowned for the incredible discounts so I couldn't resist taking the opportunity to finally try the brand.

My MAC Lipstick Collection

I have a bit of an addiction to Mac lipsticks.. a growing addiction at that. I've seen a few posts on Mac lipstick collections and I always seem to find a couple of colours to check out next time I'm shopping. So I thought I would do my own.. and you never know you may even find one that takes your fancy! This is going to be a bit of a long post.. but I hope it's one you enjoy reading.

My Very First Lush Haul

I'm fairly new to Lush products. I've ventured in many a times but never purchased anything because their products used to really affect my sensitive skin when I was younger. Now that I'm older I seem to be able to use most things on my skin so with some birthday cash I went in and purchased some of my first products. I've read so many posts on their Lip Scrubs so I picked up my first one and also two bath bombs.

The Most Popular Lip of the Year, Maybelline Baby Lips

Unless you've been living under a rock for most of 2013, you would of heard of Maybelline's latest venture Baby Lips. They retail at £2.99 in most drugstores which for a simple lip balm is on the pricey side. I'm use to picking up a pot of Vaseline for 99p. I couldn't resist the child like packaging, the bright colours and a buy one get one half price offer in Boots, I along with everyone else picked up some to try.

Stagedive by Topshop Beauty

I'm fairly new to the Topshop nail range and this is my first polish. My sister works in Topshop and picked this up for me for my birthday as I'd mentioned how much I loved the colour. It's a gorgeous, rich orange called Stagedive.

All You Need to Know about Back to M.A.C

Anybody with even the slightest Mac addiction would've heard of their Back to MAC program. It's where you can return six items of primary packaging to be recycled and in return you''ll get a free lipstick of your choice! How awesome is that? I'm off to my local Mac store tomorrow to do my first Back to Mac so I thought I'd share what I'd used up.

The Yule Monty by Soap & Glory

The Yule Monty was THE gift set to pick up in Boots this Festive Season and when it went better than half price to £27 from £60 just before Christmas.. I think everyone went a bit mad... I certainly did!

My First MAC Pro Palette Quad

I've been umming and ahhing over a MAC Pro Palette for a while. I've used their eyeshadows for years but could never justify purchasing the 15 Pro Palette plus the insert. So the Quad Pro Palette was quickly put in my shopping bag as were four of the eye shadows to fill it.

Maxfactor Wild Mega Volume Mascara

I am a big fan of Maxfactor mascara and have used their 'False Lash Effect' since it hit the shelves so when this appeared on offer for £4.99 back in October I snapped one up straight away. It comes in an 11ml tube and is described as being able to instantly blacken and plump up the look of every lash thanks to its fearless amplifier brush.

French Connection Mini Pamper Set

French Connection are one of those brands that look so sleek and the majority of their products are very good quality.I received this as a birthday present from my sister as I almost always pick one up once the sales kick in after Christmas. I also received the bath set which included a bubble bath, body butter and candle but I couldn't wait to photograph them and used them! Only the large sized body butter is pictured from the bath set.

Urban Decay Naked 3

What better way to start the new year than with Urban Decay's latest helping Naked 3? This is my very first palette from Urban Decay and boy is it a good'un. Who can resist the gorgeous rose hue shadows and sophisticated packaging?
