January Favourites

Last time I checked it was Christmas and now January seems to have gone past in the blink of an eye, blimey!



First up are the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains, of which I'm sure you are all sick of reading about. I was very late to these as when they came out I was on a strict cruelty free policy so I refused to buy them. (I'll talk more about why I purchased them in an upcoming post about my experience as being cruelty free). In regards to the product itself I can understand why everybody loves these so much, they are delightful. I picked them up for £5 each whilst on offer a few weeks ago, bargain! These are great for people who are lipstick shy as they can be quite subtle but also very buildable.

Next up is a nail polish from Topshop in the shade 'Threadbare'. I was looking for something similar to Revlon's Bare Bones and I think I may have found it in this shade. As you all know, Topshop nail polishes are pretty darn fantastic, this was opaque for me in just one coat and it lasted reasonably well. For just £5 they are wonderful products, I can see my collection growing this year. The makeup range from Topshop is all cruelty free which is superb as so many of you love their products!

The Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Pencil in 'nude' was something that I had seen blogged about and after seeing the results of it I knew I had to try it. Again, Rimmel are not cruelty free, they're also not a brand I've purchased much from in the past; for me I've always been a Revlon girl. Anyhow, this eyeliner really has impressed me and it's made my eyes look far more awake than they feel! At a price of just £3.99 I think it is brilliant. I'm still not blown away by Rimmel though, I don't know where this opinion comes from.

Lastly is the RĂªve de Miel Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm by Nuxe. This has been raved about quite a lot and what with me on a never ending search for a decent lip product I just had to bite the bullet and try it. At £9.50 it really isn't the cheapest lip balm on the market, but after using this for just over a month now I have to say it is starting to work for me; I rather love it! It has a thick consistency to it which I think is what my lips needed before I started to use it as they were craving intense moisture. From what I can find out I think Nuxe are a cruelty free brand, yay!

  2. The Just Bitten Balm Stains are my absolute favourite lip products at the moment, the only thing I dislike about them is the taste. Threadbare looks like the perfect nude shade, I still haven't tried any Topshop nail varnishes yet! Definitely need to pick some up some soon, anyone raves about them x
