January 2014 Favorites


Hello everyone!

So as January just came to an end, it’s favorites’ time! I only have a bunch of them this month, as I have been trying to go easy on the amount of products I show in a post. Well, unless it’s a haul (a collective one, considering I don’t wanna post a product every 2 days). So here are my favorites for the month.


The first one of the bunch is the Avon’s Ideal Flawless BB Cream.


I can’t be bothered to put on foundation lately, so I decided to go for something lighter and more natural. This is one of the best BB creams I have found (at least for oily skin, as I hate the Garnier’s one because I turn into a disco ball once I put it on), I have it in the color Shell (mine’s Ivory though, I bought this last summer) and it has a SPF of 15. It is sold for €12,50/£12/$10 but you can usually get good deals on it. On to the Maybelline Dream Lumi touch.


This is great for under eye darkness (I have some really bad dark circles!) and it’s awesome as a highlighter too! Sadly I just recently found this awesome product. Next is the Stay Matte Powder by Rimmel.


This product recently hit the shelves in my country and I immediately got one to test it out. I have it in the shade Warm Beige (006) and ever since I first tried it on I never stopped using it. It’s much better than my old powder because I do not get oily all day and I don’t have to do any touch ups. It sells for €8,32/£3,99/$4,99 (by order, in Continente, Boots and Ulta). Now the Kiko Colour Explosion blush.


I believe this was the first blush I ever bought and I recently came back to it. I have it in Active Mauve (03), it’s a multi-tone blush and it lasts all day on me. I believe this was a limited edition so you can’t get it at the Kiko store anymore but I believe you’ll be able to find it online if you look hard enough. Next is the Maybelline Color Sensational lipstick in Midnight Plum (338), in which I have done a review here.


Plummy colors are in this fall and winter and I have been wearing a lot of white jumpers this month, so I have been reaching out for this lipstick a lot (yay, some color in my face, since I’m super duper pale). I love the color and the finish. 🙂 On to hair care now, the Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends shampoo with red raspberry and silk extract (also known as Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship Shampoo for Long Hair in the USA).


I usually buy Aussie shampoo but it is kinda hard to get a hold of it in my country, so this time I decided to try something new and went for the Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends with red raspberry and silk extracts. I fell in love with this product on the first use. It smells amazing, my hair looks much better and I just love it. It costs €4,69/£3,89/$4,97 in Continente, Boots and Walmart, by that order. Finally, a fashion favorite, a knit sweater by H&M.


I have been wearing a lot of jumpers/sweaters lately as the temperature dropped over here and I recently bought this one. I love it so much I’d wash it over and over again so I could wear it once again. 😀 It is just a cream colored, long, loose-knit sweater in soft yarn with long sleeves and rounded hem. It is longer at the back, so it is perfect to wear with leggings. You can buy it from my Luvrocracy collection in here or, in case you want to buy it directly from H&M, it costs €19,95/£14,99/$24,95 at the store.

Hope you guys like this edition of monthly favorites and if you want a review on any specific product just let me know and I’ll write one. Thank you for reading!

  2. I love herbal essences shampoo and I have been using this shampoo of late. 🙂
    For your under eye dark circles, I suggest you use raw potatoes on your eyes or even keeping chilled used tea bags on your eyes can help fade those dark circles.
    These are some tried and tested natural methods which I use for my eyes.
