The January Favorites


My January has been a low-maintenance one. I've focused more on haulin' than usin' stuff. Some new products did manage to impress me despite the not-so-regular usage. All in all, let's have a peek at my January Favorites:



Avon Supershock Gel Eyeliner (Blackberry) - I admit, this was also one of my favorite beauty products last year. However, this has been the ONLY eyeliner that I have repeatedly used this month. My love for this baby has no bounds :-)

Wet n' Wild Megalast Lipstick (Coralline) - Those who have used the WnW formula would agree when I say these lippies are truly "megalast". I've been loving the other shades, but Coralline - a blend of coral, red, organge - has been the perfect bold color which doesn't clash with my skintone. I do feel it is more summer-y, but it does help adding a little "omph" in your otherwise drab outfit colors in Fall. 

The Body Shop Midnight Bakula EDT - Frankly, perfumes are the last thing I put on when I am ready to leave the house. That happens when I am carrying a big tote bag while holding sunshades/wallet/cell phone in my hands. I want a quick cap-less fragrance that I can put on with one hand (without the juggle attempt). For this lame reason, I had been reaching for Midnight Bakula very often. It wasn't much popular in my goodbooks before this, but - call it a habit or whatnot - I have learnt to love this very much :-D

The Balm Mary Lou Manizer - Powder highlighter PERFECTION. Forget fancy brushes or needing a base (of moisturizer/bb/foundation) to highlight your cheekbones. Honestly, I have been applying this ever-so-often with my finger without putting on any base and going to the gym. No blendability issues and the lasting power is amazeballs - even after the gym sweats.

SpectraBAN Sunscreen SPF 40 - This silicone-base(ish) sunscreen is perfect to use in conjunction with your makeup. I've yet to review it completely, but so far, this has convinced once in my life to wear sunscreen regularly(ish). :-)

L'Oreal Elnett Satin Hairspray - This is a cult favorite for decades and I can understand why. It doesn't hold or freeze more complicate hairdo(s), but this is perfect for an everyday flexible hold with a bounce. So far so good!

What products have you been loving this January?

P.S. I am so sorry not to have visited your blogs recently. Will - InshaAllah - be spamming you guys by tonight! <3

Cheers,

Bia

  1. I love the WnW Mega Last Lipsticks too Bia, the only thing that stops me from adding more in my collection is their packaging. Elnett spray is on my new year wishlist, how well does it hold curls for pin straight hair? Mmm review maybe please? x

    1. WnW are surely awesome... HATE the packaging though, I always mess them up while closing the lid :/
      It does not have really strong hold, but this makes more flexible one. It might not keep the straight hair curly, but in loose waves :)

  7. I wouldn't expect WetnWild to have good lipsticks, because I have a few from them that are really bad quality, but I guess with the obsession with lipsticks nowadays, it has gotten better! I am going to purchase a few!!
