January Beauty Favourites!

My first beauty favourites of 2015! The past two months December and January were all
about new beauty launches and I’ve been playing around with a lot of new products. I’ve
also been super obsessed with lip balms and colourful blushers, so in this post I have
lined up all my favourite products that I mainly used in January.

Clarins  // Blush Prodige in #08 sweet rose

The cutest and prettiest blush I’ve ever had! It’s from the Spring/Summer 2015
collection and the shade screams Spring! This blush is not as sheer like most Clarins
blushers, which was quite surprising to me and It’s also build able. The finishing is
matte except for the two frosty rectangles in the top and bottom corners.

MAKE UP FOR EVER  //  Smoky Stretch Mascara

I’m not a huge fan of a lot of mascara brushes by MAKE UP FOR EVER, because I’ve got
super tiny eyes the mascara wands are always too big for me. However, this is intense
black mascara is the bomb! The name of the it really does it’s justice. The mascara really
stretches the lashes and separates them, the mascara wand is quite narrow so I can
easily reach the roots and the tiny hairs . By double coating it you can create a more
voluminous effect!

Price: 120 AED  /  $32

TOM FORD  //  Eye Color Quad in #A54 Nude Dip

I love Tom Ford’s eyeshadow palettes but this one in particular is my favourite of all
time! Nude palettes always put me in a good mood. The shades have a frosty/metallic
finish and it doesn’t contain any shimmers. The pigmentation is quite strong and it looks
a bit glossy and shiny on the eyelids.

Clarins  //  Instant Light Lip Balm in #04 Orange  /  #05 Red  /  #06 Rosewood

These Clarins lip balms are my absolute FAVOURITE at the moment! They kinda
remind me of the lip smackers (which I’m addicted to!). It smells delicious, moisturises
the lips instantly and it offers a sheer colour to the lips. My favourite colour is the brown
shade in #Rosewood, I usually wear it with a brown lip liner, love it!

TOM FORD  //  Nail Color in #A14 Black Cherry

This nail lacquer has a very deep, dark burgundy/cherry colour that looks almost black
with the brightest lightening. The nail colour is quite pigmented however, by applying
two coats the nails will be fully covered. Also, once the nail colour dries up it’s quite
shiny so a top coat isn’t really necessary. The quality of this nail colour really reminds
me of the Louboutin nail colours ($50 each), it’s just less pricey 😉

Price: $32

ISSEY MIYAKI  //  L’eau D’issey City Blossom eau de toilette

I have to say, I don’t always like Issey Miyake perfumes but I find this one quite
interesting. This limited edition fragrance is a sweeter and floral version from the
original L’Eau D’Issey that was launched in the 90’s. It’s a citrusy, floral fragrance and
the more it develops, the sweeter it becomes. It also contains some musky and and
woody accords which gives the scent some more character.
