January Cosmetic Faves

January Faves
These are the makeups that I have been using everyday in January
Most of these faves are new purchases in January
so I wanted to test these new products for at least a week or two 
before I write any "fave revews"

This Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup
is my newly holy grail foundation!!!
Lots foundations make me look cakey 
but this foundation looks so natural on my skin
It blends in with my skin perfectly,
it gives people the allusion that I have natural healthy skin
also this foundation last all day,
at least for 8 hrs
it just stays the way it was when you first applied it
the packaging is very modern and pretty
because it's a plastic bottle
it's not easy to break it
I have dropped this foundation for at least twice
If I have to pick one thing that I don't like this foundation
is that it doesn't provide lots coverage
but I am fine with it
I will just my concealers to cover some blemishes and pimples
I think I have mentioned this Urban Decay 24/7 glide eye pencil in my previous posts
This is in the color "zero"
This gotta be my holy grail eye pencil
It's so creamy
so it's so easy to draw
and the pigmentation is perfect
and it doesn't smudge on my eye lid at all
After my first use,
I stop using liquid eye liners
and it's so easy to wash it off 
because it's not waterproof
This is literally the best eye liner for me
I got this Josie Marant Argan Oil in my January Ipsy bag
I wasn't going to try this argan oil on my skin at first
because my skin is really easy to break out
and oily products don't get along with my skin very well
but it says it's for all skin types
so I decided to give it a try
if it break out my skin,
I will just use this as a hair serum
I am so happy that I decided to give it a try
I didn't see any result after first use 
except feeling my face is hydrated 
but after a week of using this argan oil
pores got smaller,
less blemishes, less pimples
and it brighten my skin as well
This Josie Marant Argan Oil comes with a tear drop application
so I usually use one or two drops after I cleansed my face 
I don't think it has any scent 
These two drug store concealers are my currently concealers for under the eyes
I find myself grabbing these two concealers everyday
The first one is the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind 
in the color 60 brightener/illuminateur
this concealer is very moist
and it's very easy to blend in
it doesn't have a really good coverage
but it does brighten my dark circles
The second concealer is from Physicians Formula
It's called concealer twins in the color yellow/light
This concealer comes with two parts
on one side, it has this yellowish concealer
and on the other side, it has the "normal" shade
I usually apply the yellowish concealer first under my eyes
then the other shade
I find that the yellowish part helps to cover the dark circles 
and the "normal" shade can make it seems natural under the eyes
I don't know if I am using this product correctly,
but it definitely works well for me this way
This La Mer Eye concentrate is my fav eye cream not only in Jan
I got this eye concentrate cream last year
Even tho this is an expensive eye 
but a lil bit last a long way
this small jar can last up to 3 or 4 months
I usually get La Mer eye concentrate cream @ duty free shops in the airports
or I just get it when holts has gift card event 
This eye cream helps to decrease wrinkles under the eyes
I almost finished this cream 
i can see significant result
also this cream is not too creamy
so it's easier to absorb into the skin
This is my favourite lip balm so far
It's called Rouge CoCo in the color Baume
This is a colorless lip balm in a lipstick packaging
This is the most moisturized lip balm I have ever tried
No other lip balm can compare to this one
My lip is super dry during winter
I can't live without this lip balm
From the picture below,
everyone can tell how much I love using this
This limited edition highlight powder from Chanel 
is from my previous 
Shopper Drug Mart haul
the details of this highlight powder can be found in the haul post
I use it almost every single day after I bought it
I use this under the end of my eye brow 
around my eye corners, and just the usual highlight places on the face
The pigmentation is very good
This Blush is from Chanel S/S2013
The details of this blush can be found in my previous 
Shopper Drug Mart haul post
This is a very nice coral color
The pigmentation is very good
so only a lil bit of blush is enough 
and it lasts for at least 5 hrs 
This is my only matte color blush
I think it's very suitable for a casual look
This Urban Decay Naked 1 Eye shadow palette is 
my fave eye shadow palette
The texture is creamy
so it's really easy to apply and blend
the pigmentation is very good
it stays on the eyes for a very long time
and all the colors in the palette can be used/ mixed together 
This eye shadow palette quickly became 
one of the essentials in my daily makeup routine
I am thinking about gettin the Naked 2 eye shadow palette and the basic eye shadow palette
So there are all my january makeups faves
until next time
