January Favorites

I can't believe January is almost over. It still feels like it's New Year yesterday yet tomorrow is already February. Anyway, before the months ends, I would like to share the products that I keep reaching out for everyday for the month of January.

1. Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Liquid Foundation- it is the foundation I have been reaching for the most as I love how it stays long on my face (even though it's not as long lasting as Estee Lauder Double Wear) without the heavy feel. Review to follow soon.

2. Chanel Vitalumiere Eclat Radiance Comfort Compact Makeup - as I have mentioned on my review (please click on the link to read my review), the texture got me. And the finish is amazing. Plus a classy compact doesn't hurt either.

3. Laura Mercier Secret Concealer - has replaced MAC Studio Finish as my under eye concealer. Review to follow.

4. Beauty Blender - initially, I thought that I just wasted my money on a sponge. Imagine paying almost Php1500 for a hot pink egg-shaped sponge. But I later on gave it a chance and I really started liking it. Review to follow.

5. Guerlain Blush 4 Eclat in 04 Rosee Du Printemps - the blush I have used alternately with my Shu Uemura Glow Ons. Has 4 shades you can mix and match.

6. Shu Uemura Glow Ons - once again, I will tell you that M Pink 30 will forever be a favorite of mine. Something I use when I'm not sure which blush to wear.

7. Mentholatum Lip Ice in Lemon - my current favorite lip balm (without any tint). The lemony scent gives me a refreshing feeling. Review to follow.

8. Chanel Rouge Allure Lipstick in 74 Comedia - my favorite lipstick. Need I say more? :P

9. Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara - my go-to mascara. Love how it separates my lashes and make them look better. Click on the link to read my review.

10. Revlon Brow Fantasy in Brunette - my favorite eyebrow product! From unruly eyebrows to better looking brows.

11. Alba Botanica Rainforest Hydrating Oil Control Moisturizer - a moisturizer that keeps my skin hydrated while keeping the oilies at bay and makes my skin look luminous and glowing at the same time.

12. Acca Kappa Hibiscus - my everyday scent since I am running low on my fave Clinique Happy (yes, it is a common scent but I don't care, it works well with my body chemistry and I've been using it for a decade now). Love the aquatic floral scent that is so light.

13. Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula - keeps my skin moisturized while making it smell good at the same time.

So these are my January Favorites. What are yours?

Happy Monday, super awesome peeps! :P

I will be blogging less as I have tons of work to do but will try to make a post at least twice a week. Less reviews and less blabbing but I will visit your blogs everyday when I'm not working. Will definitely miss reading comments from you guys. :)


  1. Will be looking out for your Laura Mercier Secret Concealer Review! :) And I'm still contemplating on whether to get a Beauty Blender. I'm not sure I would know how to use it. :|

  2. Nika, sure. The Beauty Blender takes time when used to apply foundation because of the stippling motion (I call it boing boing) but it just takes a little getting used to. I love that the pointed edge can also be used to blend concealers. It's what I use to blend the LM concealer on my under eyes. :)

  3. great beauty junkies ;) btw where did you buy your beauty blender?

  4. Nadine, I bought it at Rustan's. They also have the one that comes with the cleanser for Php2500, I think. :)

  5. Is the difference really very drastic compared to just using a normal foundation brush/stippling brush? :)

  6. I'm so happy you love your Lancome too, I really like using that product. You have so many products that I'm lusting after like the Guerlain blush, Comedia and Vitalumiere.

    The beauty blender always makes me think twice coz of the price but your upcoming review might convince me more. I've been so curious about it:-)

  7. Nika, the difference isn't drastic as compared to a stippling brush but I would say that there is so much more difference as compared to the results when a regular foundation brush is used. :)

    Mina, haha! Yeah, Lancome is love. :P Will review the BB soon. :)

  8. I've been dying to get the lip ice as well! I heard so many things about it!

  9. Michelle, go get one! That regular balm costs less than 70 bucks! :P

  10. now you got me interested in the LM concealer :), have been wondering about it for a long time!

    I've posted my favourites on my blog too. ^_^

  11. Jennifer, try it. :P Oh great, I'll check out yours too. :)

    Chanel has been my HG foundie for months now... and I cant help but to crave for more Chanel goodies! haha! But I agree, it's definitely not a wallet-friendly thing! ;p

  24. Onyxsta, cocoa butter is L-O-V-E! :P

    Mitchelli, I am really loving my Chanel foundie too. But jeez, I hope they have sales and promos like those of Guerlain and Estee Lauder.
