January 2013 Favorites!

It's time for another favorites post, and another very small one at that. This past month I didn't have too many things that stood out to me, and with my 3 month no-buy in progress, I can't buy and test out new products. (Only 63 more days until my no-buy is over!) Anyways, I did have a few things that I really enjoyed, and two of the products are repeat favorites!


The first product I loved this past month is the Dr. Jart Water Fuse Beauty Balm SPF 25++ (not sure what the ++ is but it's in the name and I wanted to write the whole name). There were a few days where my skin was kinda going crazy and wanted a little more coverage and this did the trick. It only comes in one shade but it actually works well with my fair skin when I blend it in properly. It also feels very light on my skin too which is nice because I hate feeling like I'm wearing a mask. 

The next product is a repeat favorite from my December favorites post, and it's the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder. Again, this stuff is amazing! it's the best setting powder I have tried and it definitely keeps my skin matte longer than I'm used to. It doesn't keep it matte all day long, but at least 4 or 5 hours which for me is pretty darn amazing since my skin can be an oil slick. I get the translucent color because I'm whiter than Casper.

Next up is another repeat from my October favorites and it's the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Treatment Concealer and mine is the color Fair. This stuff is basically a miracle for my dark under-eye circles. I get my dark circles from my dad (thanks dad!) and I wanna cover them up as best as I can and this does a pretty darn good job. I look so much more awake and less zombie-like when I have this on.


My next favorite is the Real Techniques Stippling Brush. This brush is amazing for putting on blush. I had bought this originally for putting on B.B. cream and tinted moisturizer but I didn't like how this brush applied them so I decided to try it for blush and I'm super impressed with how it applies and blends any blush I've tried.
My last favorite is Urban Decay's Vice Palette! I mentioned in another post that my dad got this for me as a surprise gift, and I'll definitely be doing a full review on it once I test it out some more. I used this a few times this past month and I'm totally in love! But I love anything Urban Decay puts out. Anyways, I had been lusting after this since the day it came out and I'm just so excited I have this now! The colors are so beautiful and of course very pigmented and you can do so many different looks with this palette. There is some fallout with some of the more sparkly shades, but that's expected. Like I said, I'll be doing a full review on it probably sometime in the next few weeks. Many thanks to my dad for this wonderful surprise! Love you!

So there you have it! I know it wasn't alot, but these products are amazing and I felt they deserved mentioning. If you want to see a review of any product here, please let me know!
