Soo January is almost over. I'm sure a lot of people will be very happy about this fact. It's such a long month and everyone's always trying to stick to their New Year's Resolutions (no alcochol, fad diets etc). I'm not a massive fan of Jan, although I do like the thought of a fresh year, getting organised and writing out a fresh calendar. It must be the Virgo in me! Anyway, I've been loving a few new things this month so I thought I'd pop them into my first favourites post of 2016.
LUSH THE MAGIC OF CHRISTMAS REUSABLE BUBBLE BAR
If you read my Lush Christmas & Boxing Day Haul, you'll know that I picked up 3 of these bad boys. I've been using them in my baths and loving the results. I probably get 3 baths out of one wand, and it creates the most amazing bubbles and smells incredibly good. So spicy and inviting. Mmmm!
MAYBELLINE LASH SENSATIONAL MASCARA | link
I finally got my hands on this at Christmas after hearing pretty much everyone go on about how amazing it is. I have a few favourite high street mascaras and now this is one of them. It's got everything you want in a mazza. It gives volume, length, holds curl and the formula isn't too wet. Fab!
H&M VELVET TOUCH CREAM BLUSH in Dusty Rose | link
I spoke about this in my 2015 Best Beauty Discoveries post. H&M's new beauty range is absolute swoon material, and seeing as though I absolutely adore cream blushers, I just had to get my hands on one of theirs. Dusty Rose is such a fab universal shade and so easy to blend onto the apples of the cheeks. It's been living in my everyday makeup bag for a couple of months now!
COLLECTION SPEEDY HIGHLIGHTER in Pearl Sheen 1 | link
Ooooh well I do love a good highlighter. Give me ALLL the glow! I've been loving this one recently as it's just so easy to use. It's creamy, blendable, gives the perfect amount of glow and best of all, it's a bargainous £3.99.
LUSH THE KISS LIP SCRUB | link
Part of the Lush Valentine's 2016 Collection. I adore Lush lip scrubs and I was ready for a new one so it was perfect timing. This limited edition one has little edible hearts in aswell and it tastes delish.
POUNDLAND ALL ABOUT THE POUT COLOUR MOISTURE LIPSTICK in Raspberry Smoothie | link
Yes, you read that right. POUNDLAND lipsticks. I thought I'd give them a go as I'd heard a few people say that their range wasn't bad. I got a couple of lipsticks and I've been reaching for Raspberry Smoothie a lot this month. It's a deep raspberry pink that will probably suit a lot of skintones. The formula is surprisingly good - really creamy and pigmented. Not bad for a quid.
