Hello! Here's my second post of 2018 - dedicated to my favourites of the month! January flew by so quickly and in the blink of an eye, we're off to the second month of 2018. Crazy, am I right?
Granted, some of these products weren't bought nor received in January but I've been loving them quite a fair bit so I thought I'd share them here! I also categorised them so this post would be short and sweet :)
01. Vely Vely Sweet Rice Cake Peel-Off Mask - S$37.90
I received this in the mail early this month and it's been one of my favourite masks to use! It may seem gimmicky, but this mask is not only fun to use but works great on my skin! It's supposed to help to minimise the appearance of pores as well as to moisturise your skin - and my skin does feel more supple after each use. The texture does remind me of white PVA glue, except it smells pretty nice, and I like that it can be peeled off in one piece when dried completely. Oh, and do ensure you apply a thin layer as it helps you to peel it better!
02. Moist Diane Extra Fresh Scalp Essence Mist Type - S$18.90
I've been loving the Moist Diane Extra Fresh range for the past couple of months, and I love that it leaves my scalp feeling fresh and minty with the 'cooling effect'! My mum doesn't really like the scent, but I personally fine that the scent is great. Well, for someone who doesn't wash her hair every day, the scalp essence works to soothe my scalp and freshen up my hair on days I'm not shampooing and I love that it leaves my hair smelling fresh.
03. Chloé Signature Eau de Parfum
Got this as a Christmas gift and I've been loving this scent a lot! The scent is really light so it's perfect for someone like me who's very sensitive to fragrances.
04. Laneige Eyebrow Cushion Cara in Two Tone Grey - S$36.00
Hands down one of my favourite brow products yet! We don't often see eyebrow cushions, do we? I love that this comes in two different shades, which makes it easy for me to achieve the ombre brows look. With the brush that comes with the eyebrow cushion, it's also really easy for me to pick up the product and fill in brows - for defined brows that last me through the day.
05. The Face Shop Hydro Cushion Blush in Coral - S$14.00
It's been really humid recently so I opt for products that I know would stay on throughout the day. This blush has been my favourite as it leaves my cheeks looking hydrated and glowy (think Korean glowy skin). Despite being a cushion blush, it lasts me throughout the entire day even in the humid weather!
06. NYX Love You So Mochi Highlighting Palette in Arcade Glam
Despite having owned it for a couple of days, this is fast becoming my favourite highlighting palette already! For its friendly price tag, this highlighter is HIGHLY pigmented - comparable to many popular (and expensive) highlighters in the market, and I love that it's 3-shades-in-1 so I can match it according to my eye and lip make up. It's launching in February and this entire collection is definitely gonna be their star this season!
07. Urban Decay Perversion Waterproof Fine Point Eye Pen - S$35.00
I've tried numerous waterproof eyeliner pens and while brands like Kat Von D are amazing, I find that KVD's eyeliner gets used up really quickly... Either that or it dries up way too fast! I've used this UD eyeliner for a couple of months now and it's still very inky, pigmented and extremely smudge proof. Only downside is that it can be a little expensive, but for what it's worth - I'd definitely pay for this.
08. Clio Kill Cover Airy-Fit Concealer in Shade 3 Linen
This just appeared at my doorstep like, 4 days ago? I know right! But anyway, first impression before trying it out: "tiny concealer, probably would not offer enough coverage". This concealer however, took me by surprise! The coverage is really great and it's very easy to blend as well.
Instead of blending 2-3 different concealers together for better coverage, I have been using only this for the last couple of days. It stays on throughout the day without any cracks or lines, and I absolutely love this concealer! The only downside is the size, as it's relatively small compared to other liquid concealers I own. However, I do think the size isn't so bad after all as it fits well in my tiny bags!
09. Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick in Spanked - $28.00
I bought one of these lippies when it first launched because it was so highly raved by beauty bloggers and youtubers alike. This made it to my favourites list because the colour (Spanked) is absolutely gorgeous and true to pictures, and I love that it feels really lightweight on the lips. Most matte lipsticks I've tried can feel really heavy and drying on the lips, but this one doesn't. For $28, I thought it was a little smaller than expected, but that's fine too cos I like smaller-sized products that fit in my bag easily!
10. Lovisa Yellow Dreamcatcher Earrings - S$4.00
I just HAD to include this pair of earrings in my January Favourites because I really LOVE IT. Especially because it's in yellow (I have a weird obsession with yellow recently) and so cheap! We all know Lovisa's accessories can be a little expensive sometimes so when I read that they had a sale, I knew I had to check it out. And yup, I scored a pair of these for 4 bucks at their '3-for-$12' section! The usual price is $20, but I got mine at 80% off. Score!
Well that concludes the end of my January Favourites! Hope all's gonna go well for February! I can't wait because Feb also marks my anniversary with Javis, Valentines' Day as well as Chinese New Year. Bring on the festivities!
