Hard to believe that January has come and gone already! Every month I go through quite a bit of beauty products. This year, I decided that I am going to share my monthly favorites with you all! This should help answer a lot of the questions that I get regarding what I am using and loving at the moment.
January was all about trying new things, falling deeper in love with my all-time favorites and more trips to Sephora than I can count. If you’ve followed me for awhile, then you know what brands I love! I even shared a few of them in last month’s round up for December! The post is linked. 2019 is all about pushing myself outside the lines and trying even more new brands.
I’ll break down this post into two categories: empties (things I used so much that the bottles are now empty) and new to the club! This includes new items in my makeup bag.
Let’s dive in!
Favorite Beauty Products: Empties
Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Matte Lipsticks
I have the entire collection of lipsticks, thanks to a fun collaboration I did with Sephora Inside JCPenney last year, but there are a few colors that I use more than any. SPANKED and CANDY VENOM are my favorite shades by Fenty Beauty. I wear them often and completely ran out in January!
Peter Thomas Roth SKIN TO DIE FOR No Filter Mattifying Primer & Complexion Perfection
This product literally feels like butter (the good kind) on you face. I wear it by itself and underneath my favorite beauty brands. Thank goodness I got some more when I was NYC recently. Love this stuff!
Erborian Solid Cleansing Oil
Erborian is a brand I have fallen deep in love with and use one or more products from the brand daily. The cleansing oil is what I use to wash my face. I was SO sad when I got the bottom of my bottle, but thankfully buying more is just a click away. My skin always feels really refreshed after using it!
L’Oreal ELVIVE Extraordinary Oil Curl Nourishing Shampoo
My children use this shampoo daily! They have thick, curly hair and it works well for their texture. I keep this in stock at home and we went through a bottle of shampoo and conditioner last month. They may or may not use way too much but at least they are having fun in the shower. Hah!
Foundation and Concealor
This one is a no brainer, you probably already know this, but I again used another full bottle of their foundation and concealer. I may have an addiction! I also used up all of my Fenty Beauty Pro Filter Foundation. I rotate between these two. This upcoming month, I am trying some new brands and can’t wait to share!
Favorite Beauty Products: New To The Beauty Bag
I love checking out new brands! Trying new products and sharing what works and what doesn’t is one of the favorite parts of my job! I added a couple newbies to my beauty bag last month and I am excited to share them with you!
I was introduced to GA-DE cosmetics by chance. As a beauty blogger, I try to stay up to date on all the brands that are out there, but I don’t know them all! The company is based in Israel. The first product I tried by GA-DE was the highlighter. It is super pigmented and a great way to add some wow to your look. This month I tried their lipsticks and glosses, and really like them! So pretty and will look good on any skin tone.
FARMACY: Honey Butter Beeswax Lip Balm
Lip balms are in constant rotation in my life. I literally buy one, then lose it, then buy two more, then lose one … it’s a crazy pattern. Somehow, I’ve managed to keep up with this particular brand and love conditioning my lips with it before bed or even before putting on lipstick.
Short list this month, but next month (February) will be lengthy. The fact that I tried a new foundation after falling hard for the brand I currently use should tell you how serious I am about introducing myself and you all to new things this year!!
So excited for what is to come! I’d love to share some of my favorites with you guys. Make sure you are subscribed to my newsletter. I’ll be giving away some of these products that I mentioned in this post!
As always, thank you SO much for reading!!!!
XOXO – Steph
