January '12 favourites.


Could I ever start this post with the common "once again, this past month flew by so quickly" without repeating myself?
Probably not, but it's true!

Nevertheless, I'm not really complaining: the weather got so chilly and wintery, which meant I was finally able to wear a bright red lip without feeling out-of-place ;)


During January, I got reunited with one of my favourite blushes ever-
the Body Shop's lip&cheek stain! This is a repurchase, so that goes to show you how much I love it... It's my #1 choice for that "no makeup" makeup, looks so great on Mediterranean/olive skin, gahhh I could rave about this beauty non-stop! I also made good use of Russian Red by Mac, which I wore as a stain both on lips and cheeks.


As I've grown tired of wearing the usual suspects on my eyes -black pencil, black liquid liner-, it was about time I switched it up a bit with these 2 brown liners from the Body Shop. The Liquid Eyeliner, I love- it swatches as dark as I want it and goes on matte. The Carbon Eye Definer, I'm not so crazy about- there's something about its formula that just doesn't cut it for me, though I can't define it yet :/

   Swatches, with sunlight

   With flash


Aaand let us not forget these cute H&M nail polishes! I wore both two colours in alternation, with Rust being my absolute favourite. Now I must confess, I never expected to admit it as I'm not that drawn to nail polish in general but, damn: 7 ml is too little for a colour you simply adore...

So, that's it for me!
What have you been loving during January?

    1. Oh you should def have a look at the Body Shop cheek stain, it's like a better version of Benetint with a lower pricetag! I still can't pull off FOTDs, my freakin' camera distorts the propotions and makes me look like an alien :( Or so I hope, lol

  5. πως δουλευεις το λιπ σταιν για να φαινεται φυσικο, βαζεις πουδρα κτλ? εχω ενα απο τα μπενεφιτ αλλα με φοβιζει καπως η ιδεα...

    1. Κοίτα, αν το μπουκαλάκι με το stain είναι καινούριο, όταν το απλώσεις το αποτέλεσμα θα βγει φυσικό. Θυμάμαι ότι το παλιότερο stain που το είχα 2-3 χρόνια είχε συμπυκνωθεί τόσο πολύ που ήταν δύσκολο να το κάνω να φαίνεται νορμάλ όπως όταν ήταν καινούριο. Επίσης, πρέπει να το κλείνεις/βιδώνεις ερμητικά γιατί είναι πάρα πολύ εύκολο να εξατμιστούν! Και καλύτερα να το αποθηκεύεις ανάποδα, για να μη μπαίνει αέρας. Hope it helped! xx

    1. Ακριβώς, είναι τρομερή "επένδυση" το Russian Red! Δε νομίζω ότι μπορείς να βρεις φθηνότερο κόκκινο κραγιόν με την ίδια υφή ή χρώμα. Το cheek stain αξίζει πραγματικά ;) xx

  12. korres lip butter stick in rose. it's the first -safe step in trying to wear bright lipsticks. and i think i'm getting used to the idea.

    essie nail polish in luxedo. loved it, loved it! i think my love for essie nail polishes is back again!

    garnier bbcream. hmm i don't know. one day i love it, the next i hate it.

    1. Oh I know, that Korres lip butter has such an amazing colour! Last week I repurchased the purple stick though, as it gives a more natural berry shade on the lips ;)
      I haven't tried anything from Essie yet. Can't be bothered with ebay at the moment! About the Garnier BB cream, so true... It's not that "dependable" as a makeup product, so to speak. It's ok I guess, pretty wearable stuff but not sth to rely on! xx
