Today, January comes to an end. I’ve tried so many different products this month, and I’m excited to share my favorites from January!
Here are some great products that I’ve been loving this month:

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
This Smashbox primer is absolutely awesome. It’s the perfect consistency, it’s highly effective, and it’s light enough to still feel like a primer. It doesn’t break me out or feel weird at all on my skin. My foundation actually goes on a lot smoother after using this product. I know there are many variations of this product available for different skin types, but I just use the regular one since I have normal to dry skin. If you’re looking for a reliable foundation primer, I highly recommend the Smashbox Photo Finish one.
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush
The Tarte Amazonian Clay blush is possibly the most pigmented blush I have EVER tried. I always forget how pigmented it is and accidentally apply too much. (Oops!) However, with cheek products, pigmentation is never a bad thing. That’s why this product is on my favorites list for this month. This Tarte blush is super long-wearing and super awesome. I have no complaints about it at all.
I’m so happy to have found the Tarte Amazonian Clay blush because it actually works for me! I have naturally rosy cheeks, and I’ve purchased many blushes in the past that haven’t shown up on my skin at all. This Tarte product is very vibrant and stays on all day. It’s perfect for anyone who wants to add noticeable color to their cheeks! Right now, the only shade I have in this blush is ‘Dollface’, which is a light pink, but I will definitely be purchasing more in the future.
Prada ‘Candy’ Perfume
This Prada ‘Candy’ Perfume smells DELISH. It has a super sweet and flirty scent, but it’s not overwhelming at all. I’ve received so many compliments on it since I started wearing it. This perfume is a new favorite of mine because it’s perfect for everyday wear. If you like sweet perfumes, I definitely think you should give this one a try.
Benefit ‘Hoola’ Bronzer
The Benefit ‘Hoola’ Bronzer is hands down my favorite bronzer ever. It is amazingly blendable and buildable, which are two must-have traits when it comes to bronzers. Nobody likes streaky, fake-looking bronzer, but Benefit ‘Hoola’ is the opposite. It is more olive-toned than orange, which is important because it provides a more natural look. I contour using this product with a contour brush, although I like to use the tiny brush that comes with the product to contour my nose. I know there is also a liquid version of ‘Hoola’, but I haven’t tried it yet. When I do, I’ll definitely share my thoughts.
Philosophy ‘Amazing Grace’ Whipped Body Creme
The Philosophy ‘Amazing Grace’ Whipped Body Creme really is amazing. It’s like a whipped moisturizer that you can use on your whole body. I like to apply it right after I shower so the moisture sinks into my skin. My skin can get very dry, especially in the winter, so moisturizing daily is important for me. I would recommend this product to anyone searching for a high-quality, nourishing moisturizer or body creme.
Philosophy ‘The Microdelivery’ Exfoliating Wash
The Philosophy ‘The Microdelivery’ Exfoliating Wash is a gentle, yet effective exfoliator. I like to exfoliate once or twice per week to make sure that my skin stays healthy and clean. This product is the best exfoliating wash I’ve tried. My skin always feels so soft after using it. I make sure to moisturize after exfoliating to keep my skin from drying out. (Tip: the Philosophy body creme I mentioned above goes perfectly with this exfoliator!)
Anastasia Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette
My last product favorite of this month is the Anastasia Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette. I knew I needed this palette when I saw it. At first sight, the shades in this palette were amazingly gorgeous. I was even more impressed when I actually got my hands on the palette. It’s mostly mattes, but it has a couple of shimmery colors mixed in to glam things up. Every single shade in this palette is extremely pigmented, which is awesome. I’ve been a fan of Urban Decay eyeshadows for a long time, but I have to say that these Anastasia shadows are way better. The best part about this palette is that I use every single shade in it. Most palettes I have purchased have at least one or two shades I don’t use, but every shade in the Anastasia Modern Renaissance palette is very wearable. They’re just gorgeous!
That’s it for my January favorites. If you enjoyed this post, don’t forget to pin it, share, and subscribe.
