My Monthly Favorites: January 2013

Hey Everyone :-)
Another month has flown by, and that means that it's time for another monthly favorites post. I'm always looking forward to writing these posts, because I love sharing my favorite products with you guys. I really hope that you enjoy reading these posts, and that you have found a few favorite products as well. Let's move on to my favorite products for the month of January :-)

 Maybelline New York Dream Fresh BB Cream in Light:
I really like this BB cream from Maybelline New York. It gives my skin a very natural, fresh and glowy look. It doesn't feel greasy on my skin, but I do find it to be just a little sticky after it's applied. I use my belowed Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray to set the BB cream and the rest of my makeup, and it just makes my skin feel very nice and smooth :-) 

Benefit the PORE fessional:
I picked up this product at Sephora in Paris, after hearing so many great things about it. I really like this product a lot. It's very smooth and easy to apply, and it has a really nice smell as well. I have a lot of pores on my nose, and this does a great job minimizing them. I can see a difference when I'm wearing this on my face. My makeup just looks better, smoother and nicer. Definitely a product I recommend :-) 

Benefit They're Real Mascara:
This has been my go-to mascara since I picked it up at Sephora in Paris. I really like that it makes my lashes look a lot longer and a little bit thicker as well, without making them look clumpy. Since I have been using this mascara nonstop since I picked it up, it's probably a good idea to order a backup, because I have a feeling that the tube is almost empty :-) 

Bioderma Crealine H2o Face and Eyes Cleanser:
I have had this product for a few months now, and I really like it. I think it's a great product for removing eye makeup. I don't think it's the greatest for removing waterproof mascara, but since I hardly wear it, this works perfect for me :-)

 Benefit Erase Paste Concealer in #1 Fair:
I have finally found my favorite concealer for my under eye area, and it's the Erase Paste by Benefit. I love how well this concealer covers up dark circles and blue veining under the eye. The consistency is quite thick, so if you apply too much it can crease and look a cakey. I always start small, and then I go back and apply more if I feel like I need the extra coverage. I prefer using my ring finger to blend out the concealer, because I think that gives the best look :-) 

MAC Eyeshadow in All That Glitters:
All That Glitters is my favorite eyeshadow from MAC, and it's been part of my makeup collection for a long time. When I think about it, All That Glitters was the first MAC eyeshadow I bought. It's such a beautiful golden pink eyeshadow, and it's one of those shades that look beautiful alone or together with other shades. All That Glitters is definitely a must have for me, and I highly recommend that :-) 

Korres Lip Butter Glaze and Lip Butter in Jasmine:
I'm a huge fan of the Lip Butter Glaze and Lip Butter in Jasmine. I like how moisturizing they are, and how they keep my lips soft and nicely hydrated throughout the day. Jasmine has just a tint of color, but it hardly shows up on my pigmented lips. Both of these and the lip balms from EOS are my favorites :-)

L'Oreal Paris Caresse Lipstick in Sweet Berry:
I have always been impressed with the lipsticks from L'Oreal Paris. Sweet Berry is a pretty nude lipstick, which feels very moisturizing and smooth on my lips. You just can't go wrong with this shade, it's gorgeous and also very pigmented. These are similar to the Revlon Lip Butters, which I also love :-)

Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in Fame:
I picked up the Sephora Give Me Some Lip set, and this lovely lip gloss from Smashbox was included in the kit. I can't get enough of this product, it has become one of my new favorite products. The shade is gorgeous, it's comfortable on the lips and nicely pigmented. It doesn't feel sticky, which is something I look for in a lip gloss. I can see why Sephora have included this in their favorites, it's definitely a product worth checking out :-)
