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! ♡
