Monthly Favourites - January.

Since it's a new year, I thought I'd make it my mission to do monthly favourites. So even if I don't manage to post many looks you can still see what I've been rocking.

♥ Too Faced Lip Insurance.
I got this back when Boots were doing that massive 3 for 2 offer for S&TC2. I love this under creamy lipsticks though. It prevents staining, for the most part and stops feathering because I don't own a lip liner and don't really care to. Locks down colour and keeps it where it should be.

♥ Illamasqua Precision Ink - Abyss.
I was sent this as part of the release of The Art Of Darkness collection and have been using it ever since. An amazing waterproof, glossy black. I really should properly review that soon. Definitely on the high scale for it's price range but I would willingly repurchase. The tip is the favourite I've used and I've used many liquid liners in my years.

♥ M.A.C Mineralize Eyeshadow Duo - Family Silver.
I very almost Back 2 M.A.C'd this little gem just before Christmas. But I had a change of heart and the very last minute. I have to admit this isn't my favourite M.A.C product in the world, I like strong colour and pigmentation from my shadows. It went unloved for ages but I recently rediscovered it. When you're looking for a wash of colour with a bold lip or a really pretty highlight, this is perfect. It was limited edition, of course and I'm glad I didn't part with it.

♥ M.A.C Eyebrow Pencil - Stud.
I've finally mastered the art of pencilling in my brows, not that it matters now I have a fringe but I still like to do it. I'm not a massive fan of the nib of this pencil, it doesn't soften easily so you have to press quite hard resulting in too much pigmentation. So I just swipe over it with a cotton bud to take some of it away. It's doing it's job fine for me at the moment though.

♥ M.A.C Studiofix Concealer - NW15.
Covers a multitude of sins. I have no idea what I'd do without this. I have a lot of redness and scarring on my face, this covers it all perfectly without drying it out or making it look 10x worse. Love this stuff! I also love the fact I've been using the same one for about 2 and a half years (I know, I know!) and it's still fine bar the fact I had to depot it.

♥ Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick - Fire & Ice.
I'm sure it's quite obvious that I am in love with this lippie as I used it in my last FOTD. It's just so easy to apply and last for hours and hours with Too Faced Lip Insurance underneath!

A quick swatch of Family Silver, Fire & Ice, Stud (I broke the nib right before I swatched hence the crappy swatch!) and Abyss ...

Those are my favourites for January. What are yours?
