January Favourites

The first month of 2013 has officially come and gone! I'm excited for February, as it's my birthday month, Valentine's Day, and I have reading week. All of these things sort of make up for the notoriously bad weather that Canadians experience in February! Enough about February, here are all of the products that I was loving in January...

Lush Godiva Solid Shampoo Bar (reviewed here) -


This stuff is amazing! I have very dry, think, damaged hair, and this shampoo works wonders for me. This bar packs a lot of hydration, and leaves my hair feeling soft and manageable. 

Sephora + Disney Cinderella Storylook Eyeshadow Palette (reviewed here) -


This palette can help create so many beautiful eye looks, and I've been having a lot of fun playing around with all of the colours! The packaging is absolutely beautiful, and I can't help but feel like a princess each time I use this palette! :)

Lush Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter (reviewed here) - 

This is a holy grail item for me, I use it every single night before bed, and I feel like it really helps moisturize my cuticles. If you suffer from and dry bits, not only on your hands, I highly recommend checking this out! I'm actually using my third jar right now, which is insane because a little goes a long way. But, I have been using this product for years!

MAKE UP FOR EVER Mist & Fix* (reviewed here) - 


I feel like the beauty world really only focuses on either Skindinavia or the Urban Decay Makeup Setting Sprays, but I've been loving this one from MUFE! The spray is very refreshing, and I do find that it helps my makeup stay looking great all day! 

Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Polish in Sugar* (reviewed here) - 


I've become obsessed with Buxom glosses, and Sugar is a beautiful shade. This gloss in a nude-brown with shimmers. I love the tingly feeling this gives to my lips, and the gloss is actually very long-wearing! I'm really wanting to try out some more shades from Buxom. 

The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Lip Butter (reviewed here) - 


I only have about one or two more uses left in this jar, so I've definitely been using this like crazy in the past month! I love the lip butters from The Body Shop, they are very creamy and moisturizing, and the scents are so fun. 

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed - 


I've been reaching for this blush a lot this month, and I've really been enjoying this shade! Exposed is a beautiful nude-pink shade, that is very flattering and natural looking on my cheeks. I like to wear this when I'm wearing a darker eye or lip. 

Maybelline Color Whisper in Faint for Fuchsia - 


I've been loving the Color Whisper line, and I've been wearing the shade Faint for Fuchsia a lot recently! This is borderline neon, but since it offers just a sheer wash of colour, this is very wearable. This formula is so creamy and moisturizing, I just think they're great!

Ok, so those were all of the products that I was loving in January! Leave me a comment letting me know what your favourite products were this past month. :)


  1. Sounds like February is going to be a great month for you! I'm also loving Maybelline's Color Whispers. So moisturizing and wearable.

  2. Great post lovely! I absolutely love Lemony Flutter and the Pink Grapefruit scent! <3 Can't wait to try the Color Whispers once they release in my country! :))


    1. Thank you so much! :)
      I think you'll like the Color Whisper's, the formula is amazing! :)

  3. I seriously need to try Lemony Flutter! I also <3 The Body Shop butters and I just picked up Godiva on the weekend!! Great post! :D

    1. You should try Lemony Flutter - it's amazing!
      Let me know how you like Godiva! Is it the first solid shampoo you're trying out?

  4. Lemony Flutter is the best! It is a life saver for my cuticles this winter. No painful hangnails :) Really want to try the Color Whisper lipsticks. Are they very similar to Revlon's Lip Butter?

    1. Lemony Flutter is a miracle product!
      I actually prefer the Color Whispers to the Lip Butters! I find they are more hydrating, and the colours don't settle into dry areas or lines! :)

  5. Thanks for stopping by A Pear Shaped Gal and leaving a comment on my H&M Floral Explosion post.

    Looks like you have a wonderful cosmetic review site ~ I've subscribed.

  6. We were on the same wavelength with the Tarte blush hand the color whispers! I need to try the Godiva solid shampoo soon. I have it in my cabinet!
