I feel like I didn’t try many new things this month, but I’ve looked back over my purchases and things and realised I totally did. Whoopsie. As usual, this is also a YouTube video so check that out on my channel and don’t forget to subscribe!

Nuxe Gentle Toning Lotion: This was something I got in my LookFantastic box this month, and it’s such a lovely toner, so it’s now in my daily skincare routine!

PS Contour Kit: I actually only use one shade out of the trio in here but for £4 I’m not really that fussed. It’s such a good colour and blends out so nicely!

Benefit KaBrow: A bit of a spendy purchase but worth it. It makes my brows look great and I feel like it’ll last me forever!

Makeup Revolution Newtrals vs Neutrals: This palette is GORGEOUS and so easy to use. I’m doing a review of this early next month, so keep an eye out!

Trifle Cosmetics Liquid Glow: Another LookFantastic product! This gives a lovely subtle rosy glow and even works on top of powder, which is unheard of!

Kylie Lipkit in 22: I reviewed this the other day! It’s a gorgeous colour and lasts for ages on my lips.

Real Techniques 300 Brush: This was a Christmas present from my husband. It’s a stunning brush (rose gold!) and is so versatile – you can use it for a variety of things.

No7 Dramatic Lift Mascara: This was also a Christmas gift and I was surprised by how much I liked it! It’s a really great mascara and I will be purchasing the full-size version when it runs out.

Bare Minerals Mini Lipstick in Breakaway: Another gift; I reviewed the BareMinerals lipstick collection a couple of weeks back and this is my favourite shade. They’re lush!

Makeup Revolution Strove Highlighter in Moon Glow Lights: A pink-toned highlight that gives a beautiful glow without being too in-your-face. And only £3!

Rose Gold Slanted Tweezers by The Vintage Cosmetics Company: Yet another LookFantastic product, these tweezers somehow make it so plucking my eyebrows doesn’t hurt. Magical.

PS Illuminating Concealer: This did not conceal OR illuminate. It was super dark and blended out to nothing!

W7 Honolulu Bronzer: For the third month in a row, here’s the Honolulu Bronzer! I tried using it as an eyeshadow and it was just awful. I may have to give up.

Makeup Revolution Inner Eye Brightener: Again, something that was super dark. It doesn’t blend out, was hard to actually get any pigment from it and it was just a really dark pink eyeliner-type thing. Unless that’s what it was for? But it’s called the inner eye brightener, which means the inner corners… right?

What were your favourites and worsts this month? Any ideas of how I can make this W7 bronzer good?!
