January 2012 Favourites

I cannot believe how fast the first month of 2012 went! I swear it was Christmas yesterday... ;)
This month, I have to say, was a bit -makeup-lazy for me as I had a few exams to do, so I mostly stayed inside and revised - how boring... Hopefully February will be more interesting :)
I apologise in advance for the lighting in the pictures, but I still have to experiment with my camera :)
Nonetheless, I present you my January favourites:


  • Origins GinZing eye cream - got it for Christmas and been loving it since. It is perfect for my dark circles in the morning 
  • Origins Super Spot Remover - after reading about it on Anna's blog I had to try it out since I tend to get many awful breakouts on my skin and this stuff is amazing - full stop
  • Origins VitaZing moisturiser - also got it for Christmas as a little sample and it is absolutely great for my skin. I love that it has SPF 15 and a sheer tint too. The only thing I wish was different about it is the smell (kind of like a sun cream) but I can stand it for the benefit of my skin ;)

  • Benefit They're Real Mascara - there has been so much hype around this product and I completely understand why. It has quickly become my favourite mascara of all time and I will soon do a more in depth review on it
  • New CID cosmetics lipgloss in Baby Doll - I adore the concept of the New CID products with the little mirror and the light. I got this lipgloss in the December Jolliebox and I purely love it. I like how it looks on my lips, I like the colour, the feel of it and just everything :)
  • MAC lash curlers - Up until recently I have just been using cheap Superdrug lash curlers, but I am so so glad I decided to buy the MAC curlers - they make a huge difference to your lashes

 Miscellaneous products

  • Butter London Nail Polish in Black Knight - it is a lovely sheer black polish with lots of amazing pink, blue and silver glitter. Have worn it so many times in December and January as it just looks stunning on the nails
  • Versace Yellow Diamond Perfume - got it as a Christmas gift and fell in love with it straight away. It is very fruity but fresh at the same time. I would say it is not a fragrance for everyone but definitely my cup of tea :)
  • Rituals Foaming Shower Gel Sensation - received it in my December Glossybox and it is just the best shower gel in the world. I don't love its smell, but I will definitely be buying some other scents

Hope you have a great week and I will talk to you soon

Love, Sara
