January Favourites

January Favourites 

Katherine Penney Chic January Favourites Beauty Makeup


I don't really have very many favourites this month due to a mix of exams, being ill and not wanting to wear a lot of makeup. But I do have a few new things to share that I have really been loving this month. 


Too Faced Boudoir Eyes Palette
I was lucky enough to get this palette for Christmas after wanted it for ages and if definitely has not disappointed. The nine colours are so beautiful and can be mixed and matched for both daytime and evening. I don't want to talk too much about the palette as I have a whole post coming soon. 

Clinique Chubby Stick in Two Ton Tomato
This is another product that I had wanted to try for ages. And after spending ages decided which colour I wanted to try I chose this one. It looks like a really bright red but I like to apply it over a lip balm so it is a lot more sheer and natural. It's great for an everyday red as it is not too bold but it adds a nice fresh pop of colour. 

Topshop Nail Polish in Buff
I remember writing a post a few months ago about desperately looking for a really pale blue almost white nail polish. I finally found this one a few weeks later but when I first tried it I found that I didn't really get along too well wit the actual nail polish formula. I found it thick and gloopy. This sat in my nail polish box for a while but this month I picked it up and tried it again, and this time loved it. I must have just applied too much product last time as this time I just did two quite thin coats and it looked really lovely. The colour is beautiful and looks gorgeous with a few silver of gold rings. I know this is going to be such a Spring staple for me. 

Imperial Leather Shower Gel 
Being a student shower is not going to be something that I splash out on. The days of my favourite Body Shop gels are long gone and now it is just whatever is cheapest or on offer. Thankfully this was an offer that I spotted in Boots and I just love the formula and the scent. It's fresh but not fruity or overpowering and it lathers up really nicely. I hope this stays on offer as it was such a nice treat after a couple of cheap and nasty shower gels! 

Nivea Lip Butter Original 
Suffering from both types of cold this month (the weather and the illness) meant that my lips were incredible dry. I swap lip balms regularly, almost depending on my mood. But this month this is what I have been using. It's simple, effective and just does the job. It's also unscented as I wanted to save all my pretty smelling lip balms for when I recover my sense of smell!
