Star Products of the Month • January


February is here which means only one thing, what beauty products got shown the most love in January? I have been travelling a lot this past month, going between London and Monaco so I packed up some trusty beauty favourites that I knew would see me through any occasion whilst I was away. Amongst my collection are some real super stars and products that I am still loving and have been using continually, so here they are ... 
Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette

1. Urban Decay, Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette link!
Launched just before Christmas, this was another hotly anticipated palette launch designed by the fabulous Gwen Stefani and lets face it, when Urban Decay bring us a new eyeshadow palette, they always get it right. I love Gwen Stefani's style as she always looks super glamorous but with that cool, rock chick edge and always sporting her signature red lip. She designed this palette to cover all shades that you would need in your makeup collection to create an array of looks. At first glance this palette looks a tad wacky as you are instantly drawn to the bright pink and blue which lets face it, not many of us can pull off but those two aside, it's a very neutral palette thats super easy to wear for any occasion. It contains 15 eye shades, some of which are brand new and are a great mix of matte, shimmer and satin finishes. The packaging itself mimics Gwen's style with it being stylish, cool and luxurious and like all UD palettes, comes with a decent sized mirror. I have been loving wearing Baby, Anaheim and Zone for a natural day time look. Most recently there have been further products launched within this new Gwen Collection so I shall be very keen to get my hands on those!

You all know how much I love lashes (hence the name) and last year I raved about some from the brand Everblinks who make the most amazing mink strip lashes so this new year, I got some new ones. I wanted a style that I could wear during the day that weren't too 'full on' but just naturally enhanced my eyes and I couldn't have found a more perfect pair. These are the style Love-a-Flare (don't you just love that name) and these lashes are just WOW. This style is graduated going from short to long creating a flick which helps me to get more of a cat eye effect as I naturally have quite rounded eyes. They are the lightest lashes I think I have ever worn hence being super comfortable and they are not obvious when on. Being mink they look like you have had professional lash extensions as opposed to just wearing a strip lash as the hairs are so glossy and hair like that no one will know they are fake. As long as you take care of these delicate lashes, you can wear them time and time again, just pack them up into their beautiful casing and your good to go for another wear. These would be a perfect style for anyone to wear and especially perfect for any brides or bridesmaids as they look incredible in photos and not over the top. I highly recommend you go check them out! 

Inglot Black Gel Liner
3. Ingot Black Gel Liner link!
You can stop looking for the ultimate black gel liner because I have found it. I have been a Bobby Brown gel liner fan for years but ever since this little beauty came into my life there has been nothing else. This is the BEST get liner I have ever used. That's a statement right there and here is why. The waterproof formulation is the most intense, super pigmented, blackest black gel ever. It's creamy like a mousse and stays that way unlike other brands that dry out after a few weeks, it dries in an instant and when I say this doesn't smudge, budge or fade I mean a Karcher pressure washer on full power wouldn't shift this stuff. Hence when it comes to taking your make-up off you will need to use a high powered remover or oil to break it down fully, but that's a small price to pay for having an eyeliner that shall out last any of your other makeup. Its amazing. Buy it. 

BECCA Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop Skin Perfector
4. Becca, Jaclyn Hill Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop link!
I am a bit slow to the party with this product as anyone in the beauty world shall know this product well as it was a collaboration from Becca and the Insta/Youtube famous MUA, Jaclyn Hill. I was unable to get my hands on this as it was only available in the USA until last month when it came to Space NK and Cult Beauty. I happened to be in London as the email went out announcing its UK debut so obviously rushed into store and grabbed it and I am glad I did. I was already a big fan of Becca's Skin Perfectors and this shade by no means disappointed. This is a true champagne shade that is not too yellow, nor pink but a beautiful subtle gold that shall flatter a lot of skin tones. I don't think any other highlighter makes my skin look as lit up as this one being a full on highlight that catches any light and I totally love it. I highly recommend you get your hands on one if you want a real glow to your skin. Who doesn't! 

Soap and Glory The Righteous Butter
5. Soap and Glory The Righteous Butter link!
have been a Soap and Glory fan for years and I especially love their body butters as they absorb really easily into the skin, moisturise well and smell incredible. They are indeed quite highly fragranced so that the signature scent stays on your skin. As part of a gift, my lovely mum stocked me up well on these so its safe to say my body shall be very soft for a long time! I love everything about this product and I always smile once I have applied it as it makes your whole body feel amazing. It was so cold in the UK when I was there, so I was so glad that I took this along with me as this kept the skin on my body very happy!

Tom Ford Violet Blonde
6. Tom Ford Violet Blonde Edp 30ml
I go through phases with perfume where I like to go back to neglected fragrances in my collection that I haven't worn in a while which often results in me falling in love with them all over again. This happened with Tom Ford Violet Blonde. I wore this to death a few years ago as anything to do with violet is an instant hit with me and this month has bought back my love for this fragrance. It's such a gorgeous scent that is not actually sweet at all like most violet scents but very musky and simply oozes femininity. I just love all Tom Ford fragrances as they last really well on me being rather heavy, which is what I personally like.

• Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Pop Life link!

You should know by now how obsessed I am with lip products so going away for half the month was a dilemma for deciding what lipsticks to pack?! Lets say I chose well as I have been loving wearing two lip combinations this month: a pinky nude, glossy lip and a dark red matte lip. I have raved about all these products before so I won't go on about them all again but all you need to know is that they are all incredible and highly recommend!
