January Favourites

It's that time of month again! Time to find out what I've been loving in January (although you can probably already guess- it's pretty predictable!)

ASOS Makeshift Brogues: I've actually been really enjoying breaking these shoes in since I got them (see the shoe unboxing here). I've been just popping them out when I'm going short distances and I so far they've been fairly comfortable. I love that they go with so much and the cream is just a bit more interesting that the predictable brown or black that brogues normally come in.

Spectrum Flat Top Buffer: This is just one of the brushes I picked up from Spectrum and reviewed recently. I've been using it every single day to apply my foundation and it's completely sped up my make-up routine because of how densely packed the bristles are. It creates a wonderfully flawless look which leads me on to...

Max Factor Facefinity Foundation: Is this the third favourites post I've featured this base in? I cannot get enough of it and I've worn nothing else throughout the whole month of January. I'm going to talk about it a little more in my next Face of the Day post so keep your eyes peeled if you want to know more!

Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer: Here's something that's been in my collection for a while, but has been a bit unloved. I used it quite regularly for a while but then was finding it was just a little too yellow-toned and didn't match with my foundation at the time. Recently though I've rediscovered it as a blemish concealer and am really enjoying it. It's creamy and matches my current face pretty well, plus a little goes a long way. 

Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lipstick in Crushed Plum: I have reviewed this product in full if you want to know more, but I am so in love with this lipstick. The formula is pretty much faultless in my eyes and though it's quite a bold colour, I've been getting it on my lips at every opportunity and relishing it. 

The Hours by Michael Cunningham: Unfortunately I no longer have a copy of this book but it's definitely been my most memorable this month. It follows the story of three women in different time periods (once of them being Virigina Woolf) and is a bit of mystery, where the pieces don't slot into place until the very end. It's got a focus on mental illness and was also made into a film in 2002 (it's fab by the way) which you can catch on Netflix- highly recommend both!
