January Favorites are here at last! I kept them short and sweet this month. Thought I would mention the beauty products that are relatively new in my routine over recent weeks. First up is Wet N Wild’s nail polish in the shade YO SOY. This very skin-toned shade of nude looks chic with any outfit/jewelry selection. And it’s only $.99!
This is also the shade that I wore all of last week while modeling for Stylus. The polish lasted for a solid 4 days without chipping and has become my go-to shade. YO SOY ENAMORADO! :)))) In case you might be wondering, Stylus is a furniture line that gives you customizable options for designing your own living spaces.
You can customize your furniture by selecting your own fabric designs & textures to create a living space all your own! Thanks so much to Live Talent for the booking!! ❤ ❤
January would not have been complete without Almay’s Smart Shade blush in the shade Nude. You can wear any of the four blush shades on their own, your own combo of the four,
or you can mix them altogether as one shade (my preferred application method). This dusty, cool-toned pinky mauve shade is SO flattering on the skin. I especially love wearing it with a smoky eye. One of the best blushes I have ever used!
Mi amor for Essence’s Roses & Bronze palettes also began in December.
How is it possible that a palette in the drugstore $5 per-palette-affordability-range be THIS good!?
The shades are SO buttery, creamy, & smooth, that a primer is unnecessary! That is, except for the matte shades. If I wear the matte shades, I apply a satin shade first to act as a primer for the mattes & to prevent streakiness. These are definitely A+++ palettes for the outstanding quality and low price tag.
A skincare love is Deciem’s Hylamide C25 Vitamin C Booster Serum. The texture applies like a slightly slippy gel primer. Upon application, the serum dries down but not all the way. After topping it with my moisturizer, it makes my skin feel quenched. It also makes my skin look brighter when I wake up in the morning. LOVE IT.
The Urban Decay Illuminated Highlighter Trio was also a favorite of mine in January. The shades do contain micro-shimmer glitter. I don’t find the glitter to be too chunky or bothersome. These highlighters look gorgeous on the skin both day and night.
The champagne shade called Oasis (middle shade), is more of a skin-enhancing powder than it is a bright highlight. I think it looks stunning for a skin brightening pick-me-up. My favorite way to wear these highlighters is by mixing the golden bronze shade called Pyrite,
mixed with the peachy Twilight shade.
The result is the most gorgeous Peach Bronze highlight ever!!! Honestly, it is the perfect cheekbone alchemy for spring/summer tan goddess skin. The Pyrite/Twilight combo looks just as amazing on fair skin (light-handed application recommended). The brush that is included is AMAZE and purrrfect for traveling. The bristles are incredibly soft & makes a stellar contour brush for the nose as well!
So that pretty much sums things up for my favorites! Hope you guys enjoy them. Please let me know if you are loving any of the products I’ve mentioned, as I would love to hear your thoughts on how they are doing for you. Have a rockin week, my loves!! ❤ ❤ ~Kelle
