It feels so crazy to be talking about more favorites after wrapping up my 2015 beauty favorites, but here we are. I have decided not to limit my monthly favorites to just beauty and fashion, but all of the things that I am currently loving for the month. So with that being said... Let's go!
I promise that I am not trying to be repetitive, but the L'Aromarine Vanille fragrance gives me life. This is just the most comforting sweet, but not sickening fragrance that just lingers and stays with you all day. This scent is not your teenager vanilla fragrance, it is a grown up version that will have people wanting to stand next to you in the elevator.
I am not one who frequently reaches for a lipgloss, but sometimes I don’t want to go with a matte lip. Not all lipglosses are created equal, some are way too sticky and reminiscent of what you would have worn in the sixth grade. The Urban Decay Revolution lipgloss in Bitter Sweet delivers great color payoff for a gloss and can go for many hours before needing a touch up.
Finding a comfortable nude lipstick has been quite the challenge for me. I find that they are either way too light or gray looking once applied and do not go well with my skin tone, almost zombie like. Pacifica has a lipstick that I just love and it is a great nude shade for my skintone. The Power of Love Natural Lipstick in the shade Sweet One has been one of my go to colors for the month of January. It has a great satin finish with decent staying power that does not flake off throughout the day.
When it came to mascara, there was only one that I reached for time after time last month and it was the Tarte Lights Camera Lashes 4 in one mascara. My lashes are very short and curly, so I have a lot of expectations when it comes to my mascara and this one delivers. It is great at lengthening, curling, volumizing, and conditioning. It has not clumped on me and makes my lashes look full and lush.
I have become quite the candle lover and I am always in search of a new favorite. When my husband and I were in New York, we embarked upon a Nest candle pop up shop and fell in love with their candles. They are not the cheapest of candles, but they come in beautiful warm fragrances that linger through the house and create a wonderful ambiance. We opted for the Lemongrass & Ginger and is smells absolutely delightful. The scent is fresh and very spa like and the candles burns down very well where you can use the glass container for storage, it makes for a great makeup brush holder.
Everyone has their go to outfit of comfort. When you are just going out to run errands or have a quick casual bite to eat, you always want to have something that you can throw on that looks good, but has that not trying to hard feel. My Topshop "Granddad" ribbed long sleeve tees have become a favorite for me. They fit well, they are long enough where I do not have to tug and pull at them and the arm length is perfect. They are the best thing to throw on with your favorite pair of jeans.
My last favorite from last month have to be my ear crawlers. It is no secret that I am obsessed with the Baublebar website and when I decided to try out a pair of their ear crawlers it was love at first try. The pairs that I went with give just the right amount of modern edge while still being elegant enough that I can wear them to work and still look professional. I have dressed them up or down as they can go with an array of outfits. Definate winners in my book!
Stay tuned for my February favorites coming to you soon!
