5 Favs + a Brush for January

wow! January is a long month!
I feel I could have added a couple more products to my favourites!

 January favs

 mac prep + prime moisture infusion
I mainly bought this for my kit because I heard so many good things about it for dry skin
but because this winter is very cold and dry I thought I would try it on my oily/combination skin
no need to moisturize and prime, this takes care of it in one easy step!
I never used to be a fan of mac skincare but this line of prep + prime is winning me over!
I have a few more products that I love and will feature on a blog soon

mac pro longwear concealer
I always shy away from concealers that say "long wearing" because I am afraid
of them being to thick or hard to blend into the skin (looking unnatural especially under the eye)
this is the one of the best concealers I have used in a long time!
it is surprisingly very lightweight and easy to blend and lasts all day!

mac extra dimension eye shadow in natural flirt
these eye shadows are great for shimmering up your look
I use it all over the lid or as a highlight on my browbone
I love the colour, it's pink but very subtle, very pretty!

 maybelline the rocket volum' express mascara
I switch up my mascara almost everyday but then I realized
I have been reaching for this one a lot more than the rest!
this mascara add lots of volume and length and lasts all day!

sally hansen insta-dri top coat
I have been using this top coat for years 
but recently I noticed that it DOES make my nail polish last longer 
compared to getting my nails done at the salon
I have repurchased this over and over

real techniques stippling brush
this dual-fibre brush works great with thinner foundations
dip the brush in the foundation and then stipple all over your face
blend in circular motions and voila you have airbrushed results!
