January Beauty Favourites ♡


Now that January has ended and February is here, I thought I would do something different and share my January favourites! =) I’m sharing mostly non-Korean beauty favourites this post too because on a daily basis I tend to reach for a wider variety of makeup brands. I will be starting to review some non-Asian beauty products from this month too! =)

➳ Update: I will be taking pictures using a higher quality camera now so you can see the colours more clearly! Face shots will still be on my phone though because I’m having a hard time with the tripod and timer! =P

The Clarisonic is the biggest game changer in skincare for me and it is one of my holy grail beauty tools. I used to suffer from very bad acne and the Clarisonic has helped my skin clear up like no other! I only get hormonal breakouts now and there is just mainly scarring left on my skin. The Clarisonic cleanses the skin so much more deeper than just using your hands. It is also very easy to use because it beeps at certain times to notify you to move over to a different area of your face. It can also be used in the shower! Although it is an investment electronic tool, it is worth every single penny for sure!

After being able to get my hands on a Urban Decay palette and wanting one since the original came out (so many years ago!), I was super eager to wake up the next morning and use it! It absolutely blew me away with how great quality it was. I’m very well aware that the Naked 3 is a hit or miss depending on personal preference, but I absolutely love pink toned eyeshadows. It is such a unique palette and there is nothing like it. I really enjoy the feminine looks I can create as well as the more deeper, smokey eyes I can easily do with the darker shades. I have been using it very frequently ever since I purchased it and I highly recommend it to those who enjoy pinky eyeshadows!

I used to be so scared to use highlighter because I have the oiliest skin ever, especially in the summer! But I decided to pick this highlighter up after hearing that it was lovely for adding a subtle glow to the face and it really does exactly that. It’s a shimmery pale gold highlighter and looks beautiful but natural on the skin (if you don’t overload on it of course!). Candlelight has opened a whole new world for me and I’m very keen to try new highlighters out there in the market now. =)

This is one of my favourite shades of nail polish for the current summer season. It’s a creamy pale purple shade that is so flattering. I have read that it is a colour that may not suit all skin tones so I would say if you enjoy pastel purples then this is one you should definitely pick up! =) With two coats, it looks perfect! I have been really enjoying it on my toes too but it is also very beautiful on the hands.

If you’ve read my reviews, it will come to no surprise that the Aritaum Honey Melting Tints have become one of my favourite lip products! If I’m unsure what lip product I want to use then these tints are my go-to because they are so easy to throw on and I know that they will suit whatever eye makeup I’m wearing, particularly the shade Bitter Rose.

What were your favourites for January? I’d love to know your recommendations!
Happy February! ♡

    All of these products look so nice! I don’t own any of them yet but I have been wanting the Clarisonic I just haven’t made the jump. I own Naked and Naked 2 I love them! I have way too many eyeshadow palettes but if I didn’t I would get Naked 3 because everything about it is so pretty. xoxox Janet

    I love pink shadows too! But Naked isn’t available here in my city! Where did you get yours? in store or online?

    love earth tone shadows too! I like how it is with many similar shades so I create those smokey eye or gradient look!

      Yay, I’m not the only one! ❤ I think most people are scared to use pinks but the Naked 3 has shades that have subtle hints of pinks in it and are so wearable! I bought mine while I was in Canada at the Eaton Centre! I'm from Australia though so it would've been a struggle for me to find it here. D:

        Limit and Nooner are definite favorites. Liar and Factory are the ones I typically add to deepen up a look. I’ve been into using eyeshadow as liner these days, so I’d use either Darkside or Blackheart along the upper lash line. It’s such a versatile palette!

        I know! 🙂 They’re such basic matte shades but they make for a beautiful eye look! ❤ Liar and Factory are really pretty too! I just love the whole palette hehe. Those shades would be stunning as an eyeliner! I should do that more often! 🙂 It really is so versatile! ❤

    Ooh, the T o o F a c e d C a n d l e l i g h t H i g h l i g h t i n g P o w d e r D u o looks scrumptious! I’ll have to look into that! 🙂


    • Dorkchops says:

      Thank you Harriet hehe! ❤ It's definitely worth the money, it's changed my skin so much! My skin is the best it's ever been at the moment. Totally, the Naked 3 is the best palette ever!

      I've been blogging for about 2 weeks now! ❤ How about you?

    I have been thinking of getting a clairsonic brush for so long I’m just concerned about price versus value so your review really helps! Great blog as usual!!

      I was scared about that too but I decided to pick it up anyway because I was really desperate to find a good solution for my acne! It’s helped so much and I’m glad I purchased it in the end! 🙂 I hope you like it if you buy it! ❤ Thank you Amy! ^^


    • Dorkchops says:

      Thank you! I’ve been wearing it nonstop! I know, it really is the best investment! ❤ I was a little hesitant to spend that much money on it but it really is worth every single penny! Thanks for commenting! ^^ ❤

    Bunch the usual
    ne’er-do-wells into
    an alternative
    Franklin Street, Chapel
    Hill art café, and

    presto! For
    that brief period
    she brought/gave
    us the chance to let
    it fly, hang it out in the

    breeze for all to see,
    some to comment on,
    few, very few, to
    purchase. That marble
    effect you gave me

    lingers, though
    myself far flung to
    just under
    missile range on this
    mountainous peninsula.

    Carolina life seems so
    happy, yet
    only pictures tell
    a story that must be

    as complex
    as you always were back when
    we had time
    to wander free, be
    ourselves, love each other.

    Love the aesthetic of your site..it feels very pretty. I not sure if I will ever use the products featured here but I love the way the packaging looks, which is a very big part of the marketing game. Look forward to what you have in store for the months to come.
