January Favorites

First monthly favorites post of 2011! :) I think these are probably my favorite posts to make. I feel like it puts things in perspective with what you tend to grab for most each month.

YSL Rouge Volupte in #2- I love everything about this lipstick (the smell, the shade, the packaging...) except for its lasting power. It lasts a little longer with lipliner and gloss.

Smashbox Blush Rush in Flush- Heard about this on YouTube from MakeupbyTiffanyD. It is as fantastic as she says. I think this is better than NARS Orgasm, which is saying a lot since it is one of my favorite blushes.

Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Binge- I'm loving navy blue eyeliner right now and this one is just beautiful. It especially looks good paired with bronze-toned eyeshadows.

Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse concealer- I'll be adding this to my next Project 5 Pan, I'm sure. It's a great concealer and so easy to blend.

L'Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base- This has really made my foundation routine easier. It's been perfect for winter. I am not sure how well it will work for me in the summer, but it definitely works for my very dry skin that winter blesses me with each year.

So...any favorites this month? Share!

Today is the day that I would be going to the MAC Wonder Woman party but lo and behold, I started to get sick yesterday evening. And I haven't shaken it off yet. My lovely husband is going as a substitute for me with list in hand. I'm actually not too excited about the collection, because I don't really care for the "supersizing" idea. And the doe foot applicator on the lipglasses is ridiculous. So I'm only grabbing two things from the collection- Marquise d' lipstick and Themyscira Opulash. I'll swatch them in my next post.

I'm off to huddle up in blankets and read. Hopefully, I'll feel better tomorrow. There is a huge snow storm expected to hit early morning, so at least I won't be expected to go anywhere! If you're where the bad weather is hitting, I hope you stay indoors and safe! Lots of love!

I actually just posted my January favourites on my blog earlier today! :-) I'm definitely going to have to check out that L'Oreal Base. My foundation tends to highlight the dry skin around my eyebrows - do you think that would help?

Hope you feel better soon!

@Janine- Checked 'em out and commented! :) I do think it would work. It just seems to make things slide on with a bit more ease. I find that my "flakiness" is definitely diminished with the primer.

@Christine- You must! And even better if you find it when it is on sale!

@Kerri- Right?! I don't know how I got so lucky, but every girl needs this kind of treatment. I think it's a Canadian thing. ;)
