Happy Hump Day Ya’ll! Here are my first favorites from the new year! I found a few new things I fell in love with and rediscovered some old favorites. I actually wore makeup quite a bit this month so I’ve got several beauty products to show you. I’ve also got several new fashion & jewelry items too! Let me know in the comments what your favorites for the month were or link a post if you have one, I would love to see!
Lorac Pro Palette 1 & 2–These are two of my very favorite palettes! I actually wore a gray smoky eye a lot this month from the Lorac Pro 2. But I enjoyed the first palette as well!
L’Oreal True Match Lumi Foundation–This is just a repeat purchase. I like this foundation because it gives a light/medium coverage and doesn’t look fake on the skin. It’s also great for my dry skin because it’s kind of luminous & dewy.
Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer–I’ve tried to make this concealer take the place of my beloved NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (it’s $29!) but I just don’t like this one as much. I don’t full like it’s as full coverage as I need it under the eyes, but I’ve enjoyed highlighting my face with it. I’m almost done with it, so I’m definitely going to use it up, but then I’ll be ready for something else though.
N.Y.C. Bronzer in Montauk Bronze–This bronzer is a great one for the drugstore. It’s just a really pretty shade and I like to use it with a big fluffy brush just to warm up my whole face.
NARS Blush in Lovejoy–I would just like to say there was only one day this month that I did not wear this blush. This has definitely become my new obsession. You look at it and think there’s nothing too special, but it’s just a gorgeous bronzy shade and just looks stunning on the cheeks.
MAC Lipsticks in Crème d’ Nude, Jubilee, Angel, and Crème Cup & MAC Lip Pencils in Soar & Spice–I was really into nude lips this month for some reason. I enjoyed mixing and matching all of these shades as they are all variations of nudes & light pinks.
Essie Nail Polishes in Carry On & Ballet Slippers–These were 2 of my favorite nail shades to wear throughout the month. I really love both of them even though they are total opposites!
Embryolisse Moisturizer–This is a great moisturizer and something new I tried. I’ve really enjoyed using it so I think I will definitely be repurchasing it.
Make Up For Ever Instant Brush Cleanser–As I’ve mentioned before, this brush cleanser is amazing. It is a great spot treatment to use on your brushes when you’re in a hurry in the morning or something. It works perfectly and I’ll definitely be repurchasing this as well!
Rosebud Co. Rosebud Salve–This was also a new purchase that I fell in love with. I have super chapped lips and this has really helped to keep them nice and moisturized. It’s only $6 for a whole pot. It’s going to last me for a long time & I really love it!
Shop Quintessential Necklaces–I have a whole blog post dedicated to these necklaces. They are both gorgeous & I get tons of wear out of them. It’s nice to have a statement necklace in your collection for when you really want to dress up an outfit, but it’s also nice to have something a little more on the simple side for days when you don’t feel like dressing up. I do have a promo code for you to use if you’re interested in purchasing one of these necklaces. You can go to Shop Quint and use the code chicgeek10 to get 10% off your order! & it doesn’t expire so use it whenever you buy something! 🙂
Gold Michael Kors Watch–There were few days that I wasn’t wearing this watch this month. I am absolutely obsessed with this and love how big it is. Oversized watches aren’t for everyone, but I am in love with it!
Gold Fossil Watch–When I wasn’t wearing the watch above, I was wearing this one. This was a Christmas gift from my bosses and it’s so nice to wear with soft colored clothing or other delicate jewelry pieces. I’m not usually a fan of smaller watches, but I find myself reaching for this often.
**If you have any questions about where to purchase anything listed on here, let me know & I’ll try to help you find it if it’s still available! 🙂
