January Favourites 2019

January has been a full month of trying new skincare products, bold lipsticks and finding my signature scent.

The Body Shop British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask

If you have been following my blog for a while, you know I have a passion for The Body Shop products. They are cruelty-free and incredibly good quality.

Let’s start with the packaging. The face mask comes in a beautiful glass jar which has a pink label with its name written on it.

It is gel based infused with real rose petals, aloe vera and oils. What’s more important is that it does not have any parabens, paraffin, silicone or mineral oil.

I apply it with a brush and leave it on for about 10-15 minutes. I use a cloth to remove it and my skin feels refreshed, healthy and glowy.

It retails for £17.00 and you can find it here.

Huda Beauty Power Bullet Metal Lipstick

When I first saw Huda Beauty’s announcement for the new lipsticks, I knew I had to have it.

I went to Selfridges in London as soon as it launched and I finally came to the decision that the shade “After Party” was the best one for me.

The packaging is sleek, in a sparkly ombre – matching the lipstick shade, with a magnetic cap.

Apart from the gorgeous colour which is a metallic purple with specks of glitter, it also smells delicious.

It retails for £18 and you can find it here.

e.l.f Prismatic Lip Gloss

Another lip product that I have been constantly using is this lip gloss from e.l.f.

The shade is “Amethyst” and it is a sheer shimmery purple – seems like I have a purple obsession.

I either apply it over a nude or pink lipstick, or I just apply it on its own and it gives the makeup look a fresh touch.

It retails for £5 and you can find it here.

Givenchy Noir Couture Volume Mascara

The latest item I have received from Glamour Beauty Club has been a mascara from Givenchy.

I have been using it since I got it and it makes my eyelashes look full and intense.

It retails for £26 and you can find it here.

Collection Glam Crystals Dazzling Gel Liner

Another favourite of mine has been this glitter gel liner from Collection.

I have been in love with glittery eyes and I definitely recommend this one.

I usually quickly do a glittery winged eyeliner and then a bold red lip and I am set for the day.

It retails for £2.99 and you can find it here.

Victoria’s Secret Tease Eau de Parfum

This past Christmas, my lovely boyfriend has gifted me the VS Tease perfume and it has become my signature scent.

The bottle is gorgeous, 100ml, with pink and black mesh tied at the cap.

Notes: Black Vanilla, Frozen Pear and Blooming Gardenia.

My name is Irina, born and raised in Bucharest, Romania, currently chasing my dreams in London, United Kingdom. I first smiled on 23 October 1997 and I have done so since. In 2016, I wanted to create a blog to have an outlet for my creativity – a safe space where I could express myself and talk about subjects I am passionate about – beauty, fashion, lifestyle. I find inspiration in the little things and I always write with a cup of coffee next to me.
