Welcome to my first favourites of the year, it has been an incredibly long January. It's not like me to put up favourites on time but here we are. Most of these products are pretty new or that I haven't talked about a lot. Getting straight into the makeup.

This consists of 9 beautiful shadows in 3 different finishes, I've mentioned this in my Everyday Soft Glam Makeup Look, it truly reminds me of the ABH Modern Renaissance palette but I do not get much use out if so I'm selling it, please email me if you are interested or head over to my Depop (klau93). Back to the palette, these shadows are super soft, buttery and blendable. All these shades complement each other and those glitter/metallic are absolutely stunning.  The matte shades out of them are extremely buildable. There is a little kick up when you dip your brush in because it's super pigmented. I'm obsessed with this palette and it is easily one of my Top 3.

I have featured Lychee Me in my recent Colourpop Haul, this is an ultra-glossy lip which has a sheer finish. It is a beautiful nude colour and looks amazing as a topper and moisturises your lips. It is a little sticky but nothing too annoying like a normal gloss. It is also super affordable if you can get your hands on it and lasts on me for about 4-5 hours.

I received this part of the Asos Beauty Box and if you haven't heard of it you need to keep your eye out on the Face & Body Section. My skin has become super dry in this cold weather and I saw results from first use. I only use this at night since it's a heavier cream and my skin is plumper and hydrated the next morning. The scent reminds me of E45 but the scent fades asway. It really good for sensitive skin, I try to use this less since I don’t want my skin to rely on it and build up too much of a tolerance. I want to try so many First Aid Beauty Items now.

This smells delicious if you like the smell of oranges. I love gel moisturisers since it sinks into the skin immediately. It's a great makeup base and I remember using this when it first came out. My skin starting to get used to my favourite Neutrogena Gel Creamhence I've gone back to this. It's so nice to put on in the morning.

This primer water helps prep my skin for makeup and make it longer lasting. I found that it helps controls my oily skin. I am almost at the end of this and it tells you a  how much I love using it, I have got the smash box one to compare so maybe I will a comparison later. P.S I forgot to add this to my photo.

I picked this up after the Christmas sales since I did not want to pay the full £99 whack. I am obsessed with Gucci bloom. I smell incredible and I literally douse myself in this. The packaging itself is stunning, it has a like a jasmine tea scent which I love in perfumes and looks beautiful on my vanity.

That is all for this post! Hope you've enjoyed it. 

Until next time!
