January was a somewhat busy month for me. I had a relatively long winter break so it was such a bummer to go back to school. In any case, I tried a bunch of new products this month and here are the few that I really liked and used all month long :) . There aren`t many, but these are the things that I see myself reaching for on a (almost) daily basis.
Maybelline Baby Lips Cherry Me
Cherry Me is probably my favorite Baby Lips color because I like how it gives a hint of color, but not too much. The lip balm is very moisturizing and I`ve noticed after several uses that my lips looked a lot better and the dryness went away. So far, I`m really liking these Baby Lips. I know I jumped on the bandwagon a little late, but I`m glad I ended up picking up a few of these lip balms to try out.
Maybelline Baby Lips Quenched
Cherry Me is my favorite Baby Lips with color, but Quenched is my favorite non-color lip balm from the Baby Lips collection. It provides a lot of moisture to my lips and the scent isn`t overwhelming. I can`t really describe what the scent is though. On top of that, it didn`t make my lips peel or blister like the Peppermint one did.
Urban Decay Naked Palette
This is another item I was a late in getting: the Naked palette. Most people that I know have had this for as long as I can remember now. I recently purchased it during December and I`ve been using it all throughout January. It`s a great palette for daytime looks, but there are some great shades for a nighttime look also. It`s a versatile palette and great for travel.
Orly Rock the World
Orly`s Rock the World is one of the polishes I won in /member/annie-diep giveaway. It`s an absolutely gorgeous color. It`s a duochrome polish that switches from a bronze/gold to a deep rose with a lot of shimmer. The formula on this polish was really good and easy to apply. It was opaque in two coats. It`s definitely one of my favorite polishes.
Physicians Formula Custom Eye Enhancing Gel Cream Liner Hazel Eyes
I purchased this when CVS was having their clearance sale so I got it for a really good price. I don`t think I would have purchased it if it wasn`t on sale because I think it`s a little bit pricey. I really like this liner (mainly the black and brown) and I`ve been using it all month long. Sometimes I would just line my eyes with this and that`s my make-up for the day. The formula is very smooth and easy to apply. The brush that it comes with applies the product fairly well so I just use that. However, I do wish it was a little bit more pigmented.
Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter Tutti Frutti
Tutti Frutti was one of the first Lip Butters that I picked up. I looked at a lot of swatches before making my purchase and this color caught my eye from the beginning. It`s a great coral color, but it`s not too bright. The formula is very creamy and moisturizing. It`s definitely one of my favorite Lip Butter colors.
