January Favouites

One of my ultimate favourite thing is when other beauty blogs list the products there using alot right know and why they are getting alot of use out of them. So i decided to borrow the idea and do one of my own.

Here are the products that I am currently loving.

MAC Volcanic Ash Thermal Mask - This is an amazing product that came out with the Style Black collection.  When I first picked this up and used it I instantly fell in love.  So much so that I wanted to savor every last bit.  In doing so, I actually forgot about it until I was rummaging through my unorganized drawer of skin care product and stumbled upon it.  I have been using this 2 to 3 times a week and have noticed my skin being smoother, softer and a noticeable amount of reduced redness.  The only bad part about this product is that its limited edition so i wont be able to replenish my supply.

MAC Tinted Lip Conditioner SPF 15 plus Lavender - This has to be my favourite MAC tinted lip conditioner to date.  It leaves my lips with the perfect amount of pinky nude color, almost like my natural lip color but better.  

OCC lip Tar in Hush -  I am totally obsessed with any product that is long wearing and that I dont have to touch up so for me any of OCC lip tars are really a HG product.  The color is the most amazing dusty nude pink that creates the perfect base for literally about 70% of my glosses.  Not only are all of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics products Vegan and Cruelty free, but they are designed to be mixed so you can always create the perfect color.  All of the colors from OCC lip tar collection are definitely on my wish list.

MAC Tete-A-Tint - I love this shadow for using to blend out my crease color or to use on my lower lash line to camouflage my under eye circles.  All MAC's matte2 colors are so smooth, pigmented and easily blended.  This color is being discontinued so I must get a few back ups before it's totally gone. 

MAC Mineralize Blush in The Soft Meow - The perfect shade for contouring on my NC25 skin and is easily blended.  I fell in love with it when again I was trying to find a sculpting colour in my stash with not to much orange or red in it......LOVE!!!

MAC Fluidline in Dark Diverson - In the pot it looks like a burgandy plum, but when on me it really apears more chocolate red brown.  That is just fine with me!  It's not quite as drastic as Blacktrack, but a bit darker the dipdown and this colour really pulls out the green in my eyes.  I even like the consistency better then the other fluidlines.  You do have to build the colour a bit, but it's very smooth and the end result is amazing with my eye color and skintone.

MAC Beauty Powder in Oh So Fair - It's the perfect pale pink for that smokey eye and nude lip I have been rocking all month.  I love how natural this colour can look and how you can build it beautifully for more drama. 

MAC Dazzleglass in Babyspark - Though I am usually not a fan of the dazzleglasses, this one is a no fail.  I love that it can help to create that perfect Kim Kardashian pale pink pout.  The shimmer in it adds just the right amount of glamour.  I've had this product since it was first launched but saw a YouTube video using it paired with a dark smokey eye and decided to add it back into the rotation.  

MAC Strobe Cream - I literally dont think I could exist without this product.  I love that just had a facial look that it gives me when using it on a no make up day.  I also love how it adds that dewy healthy looking finish to even the most matte foundations.    


  1. Great favourites! :) I want to try MAC Strobe Cream.

  2. Obsessed! For me it adds the perfect amount of dewiness alone or with a foundation! Next time you pop by your MAC counter ask for a sample. But if you like it a little extra dewy try strobe liquid! Its a bit more luminesent! I really adore each product. Thanks for the post! Means alot:)
