Hi babes! I know it's already almost the middle of February but I finally have my January favorites up! I apologize for taking forever. For those who didn't know, I live in Connecticut and we just got about 40" of snow so I took the five days of no work and being snowed in to take pictures, swatch and edit like a crazy person. Back to January, I have so much exciting things going into the new year: being engaged and looking for a house, a Vegas vacation in June, an amazing blog that just celebrated a huge mark with amazing readers... y'know, just to name a few things ;) Without further ado, let's jump right into my favorites! Don't worry. It's not as long as my favorites normally are.

L'Oreal True Match Lumi Foundation in Porcelain/Light Ivory W1-2 - Buy
I never in a million years thought I'd ever say this but I'm in love with this foundation. It's perfection and amazing for me. The color matches my skin perfectly (super surprise because I'm pale) with amazing coverage. Feels really light on the skin. I recommend this highly!

Bath & Body Works Bali Mango Body Spray - Buy
This perfume right here - ah, it's amazing! It reminds me so much of summer time and fruity drinks. I've gotten so many compliments on this. Top notes: Sparkling Tangerine, Asian Apple, Peony. Mid Notes: Thai Lychee, Passion Flower, Pink Rose, Nectarine. Dry notes: Raspberry Coulis, Skin Musk, Sugar Woods.

Geodeo Island Natural DeodorantBuy
Kind of an odd favorite, but I can't get over how good this smells. I'm usually a Dove girl, but this was in my Influenster Winner Box so naturally I had to try it. I'm constantly running around working at a daycare, so I really need a deodorant that works. This does and smells likes yummy fruit at the end of the day.

Maybelline The Rocket Volum Express Mascara Buy
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this mascara! I think I might do a mascara showdown so you all can see this compared to others. I was so hesitant to buy this because I really didn't think this was anything special at first. Then Jess (at Love for Lacquer) told me to try it so I did. There was so much volume in this, my eyelashes touched my eyelids. LMAO. I swear!

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Spot Corrector Buy
So I have dark spots. Whenever I get a pimple and it goes away, it's shadow lingers for a while on my face (almost always on my freakin' chin!). So frustrating. This baby is a lifesaver! In almost the exact shade as my skin (surprisingly), this has medium coverage. It has a weird sponge applicator which I know weirded some people out but I didn't mind it - it evenly applied the corrector to my skin.

  • Liquid Lacquer Revenge Is So Sweet - A gorgeous grey jelly with magenta and turquoise hexes. Full swatches and review here.
  • Zoya Aurora - A plum polish with micro holographic glitters strewn in.
  • Zoya Bela - A sheer ballet pink polish. I actually really like using this when I'm going for a super polished and clean look. It's a classic!
  • Candy Lacquer Cold Hearted - An icy mix of white hearts, squares and hexes. Swatches and review coming this week!
  • Essie Funky Limelight - Do I need to say more? I'm so happy I crushed this lemming of mine this month. I'm a HUGE fan of neons.

Nestle Buncha Crunch - Buy
I have no clue why but I've been lovin' these this month! I passed by them at Dollar Tree and was like, "AJSADJA I need these!" I remember having these when I was younger. Basically, it's a Crunch bar in a tiny ball. Yummmmm!

Favorite Music:
I Knew You Were Trouble - Taylor Swift
Mama's Broken Heart - Miranda Lambert
Make Me Wanna - Thomas Rhett

So, what were your favorites of January?
