January Faves

I cannot believe I am writing a January Faves post already! This year is going fast already! I must say… 2017 has been quite kind to me so far, and I certainly hope all this positivity lasts as long as possible! This year is going to bring bigger and better things, I can feel it! That being said, I’ve been lucky enough to discover some more amazing products and I’m thrilled to share them with you guys today!


Jeffree Star Velour Lip Scrub in Hot Cocoa Peppermint


I’m on a Jeffree Star kick these days, and when I learned about the Hot Cocoa Pepperming Velour Lipscrub, I had to have it! This lip scrub is so awesome! Not only does it taste good, but it works great! I’m a lip scrub junkie, but I have noticed that some will stain your lips depending on the color, or they can leave an oily film. This scrub leaves your lips feeling great, with no annoying feeling afterwards! My lips have never felt and looked better and I attribute it to this scrub!

Farsali Rose Gold Elixir


Another product that has helped my lips tremendously is the Farsali Rose Gold Elixir! I see this oil being used by beauty gurus all over Instagram. Most of them use it just before applying liquid lipsticks, so I wanted to give it a shot. After I apply my foundation, I wipe off any product that may have gotten on my lips, and then I put one drop of oil on my lips. I let it set, so by the time I’m ready to put on my lipstick, my lips are good to go! My liquid lipsticks have never worked better and they apply so beautifully with the help of this holy grail right here! I have used this product on my skin before, but just on dry areas of my face, but it’s my lip go-to! Best part… it’s going to last me forever because I only use about a drop a day!

Tarte Pearly Girl Vegan Teeth Whitening Pen


For years I have tried to make my teeth whiter. I’ve used so many at-home teeth whitening products and nothing worked. I saw slight differences with some products, but never one that lasted and that was noticeable. I was a little skeptical about this product at first, but I saw some amazing reviews and I figured I would give it a try! Let’s just say… it’s Limited Edition and I’m starting to stock up now because I love this product so much! My teeth are whiter than they’ve ever been! I wear a lot of dark lipsticks, so my teeth stand out. They were never really yellow, but they were dull and I wanted them to pop. After a few uses, this pen worked wonders! It says you can use up to four times a day, but I only use it in the morning, and at night. If I have an event, I’ll use it more that day. It doesn’t have a bad taste, there’s no wait time, and it works! I’ve had so many people tell me recently how white my teeth are. I didn’t put much stock into this product so I didn’t take a before photo, but I’m kicking myself now because I’d love to show you the difference!

OFRA x Kim Thai Wanderlush Moisturizer


Another limited edition item that I’m stocking up on before it’s gone! I reviewed this product a few weeks ago, and I am loving it more and more each day. It can be used as a moisturizer and a primer, and I use it for the latter. It’s the best primer to use during this cold time of year. I usually have issues with my foundation and dry skin, but this year, I’m not having much of an issue because of this gem! It makes my skin feel so hydrated and applying foundation lately has been a dream!

Pixi Beauty x Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse


Pixi skin care products are the best! I have almost every item at home, and while I may not use them all the time because I try new products often, it’s definitely my go-to brand! When I learned about the Double Cleanse, I knew I had to have it because it sounded so wonderful! One side is a solid cleanser, and the other is a cleansing cream. The solid cleanser literally melts off makeup, even stubborn eye makeup and liquid lipstick! I knew it was going to be good, but I was seriously blown away. The cleansing cream is another step that helps soothe the skin, making it feel luxurious, while prepping it for the next steps in your routine.  I am going to publish a full review soon, but I couldn’t go without mentioning this product!

Tarte Shape Tape


So many YouTubers are using this concealer and rightfully so! This stuff is amazing! I don’t think I’ve tried a concealer quite like it! I love it so much, that I go light on the foundation and use more of this stuff because I love the coverage and the finish. It masks imperfections and provides flawless skin. Some say the applicator is way too big, but I really love it! It covers a large area in one swipe and I can’t get enough of it. I’m really hoping they come out with a foundation because I’ll be all over it like white on rice!

Ultra Luxe Drying Potion


I get pimples… I pop them… I make it worse… I am red for days. It’s a vicious cycle and a horrible habit. I used to have a spot treatment that I loved, but it stopped working for me over the years. I needed something good and something that worked fast because I have zero patience. I asked my friend, who is an Esthetician, what her favorite spot treatment is, and she mentioned this one. IT. IS. AMAZING. By shaking the bottle and dotting it on the blemish, it tingles and cools it a bit. I haven’t had any huge pimples lately (which is wonderful), but I’ve stopped the ones that I do get with this stuff! I have put a dot on my face and woken up the next morning with no zit. I’ve looked in the mirror and forgot where it was, it’s that good!

So there you have it! February is going to fly, so stay tuned for another faves post!
